Lifeguarding Women’s Health

Staying on top of all the latest healthy foods and diets is exhausting, and knowing all the latest news about vitamins is no different. Almost everyone can benefit from taking a supplement with calcium because most people don’t get as much as they need through their diets — 1,000 mg a day for adults, increasing to 1,200 mg after age 50.

What Consumers Need to Know About Vitamins

From “Everything You Need to Know About Vitamins” in Everyday Health:

Paul Thomas, EdD, RD, scientific consultant with the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements, notes that some vitamins become especially important at certain times in a person’s life. For example, pregnant women or women who may become pregnant should be certain to get enough folate, or folic acid, a B-complex vitamin — 600 units a day, rather than 400. And as you age, you should probably take a daily supplement to get additional B12, he suggests.
“You don’t have to become an expert or learn all the intricacies of all the vitamins — because you can’t,” adds Dr. Thomas. There’s simply too much information to try to remember. What you need to do is eat a healthy diet, selecting recommended foods based on the USDA guidelines. Because few of us consistently eat a well-balanced diet, Thomas says taking an over-the-counter multivitamin, even a store brand, is a good idea. “It’s sort of like an insurance policy that covers all your bases,” he explains.

Insuring the Right Balance in Your Diet

Insuring your nutrition with a multivitamin could possibly be your summer’s lifeguard. We cannot possibly intake the proper amount of nutrients and vitamins from our daily diets so we need multivitamins to help protect our body, like a lifeguard protects and watches over you when you’re swimming.

Multivitamin One-Per-Meal LifeGuard might help when you’re drowningLifeGuard Daily Antioxidant Supplement in a bad diet. It was formulated by two of the top nutritional scientists in the world who wrote a bestselling book in 1978 about life extension. LifeGuard is packed full of 27 essential vitamins and nutrients that may strengthen the immune system and protect your body from free radical damage.

L-Phenylalanine: The Perfect Holiday Lift

Appetite out of control this holiday season?

Big Thanksgiving Dinner

How will you manage your appetite over the holidays?

Phenylalanine may be the answer! Okay you’ve decided to lose weight and take charge of your health. But how do you deal with those late night snack attacks and mid-afternoon cravings for candy, cookies, soda, and chips – especially with Thanksgiving and Christmas looming ominously in the near future.

No matter how hard you try to avoid calorie-laden carbs, let’s face it-after a lifetime of bad eating habits, it’s tough. And even if you’ve switched over to eating fruits and air-popped popcorn, the carbohydrates quickly add up, which can contribute to a rapid increase in blood sugar levels, and in turn  the body responds to by raising levels of insulin. Eventually, if this pattern continues, your body becomes overwhelmed by the amount of insulin and is sluggish in response to it. So you end up developing insulin resistance and possibly Syndrome X… which inevitably results in weight gain, a thickening around the middle, and a craving for sweets, breads, or other carbohydrates shortly after a meal-which only adds to the vicious cycle of trying to get off the carbohydrate merry-go-round.

If you’re really serious about controlling your appetite and are tired of battling your cravings and added pounds, here’s a safe way to control your appetite and finally get your weight under control! Phenylalanine is the nutritional supplement that curbs your appetite and elevates your mood

What is Phenylalanine?

Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that acts as an appetite suppressant by promoting the release of intestinal hormone-cholecystokinin-which signals the brain to feel satiated after eating.

Here’s how appetite control works: cholecystokinin (CCK) is released as food enters the stomach. It tells the digestion to slow down and then gives the message to the brain that you are “full,” so your appetite naturally decreases. This takes time – usually around 20 minutes.

Phenylalanine is found in a variety of foods, including almonds, avocados, bananas, brown rice, cheese, corn, eggs, fish, lima beans, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and soy products. Problem is, you’d have to eat lots of extra calories in order to get an effective amount.

If you take Phenylalanine in 30 minutes to one hour before eating a meal, you’ll notice that you’ll feel full faster, so you don’t fill up on extra calories that you don’t need! And not  only that, you’ll stay full longer so you don’t get that late afternoon or after-dinner snack attack. Before you know it, those extra pounds you’ve been carrying around will start to melt away-safely and effortlessly. Not only can Phenylalanine suppress your appetite and help you lose weight, it can elevate your mood.

Lose weight and stay positive!

Once you have made up your mind to lose weight, you should make that commitment and go into it with a positive attitude. Think like a winner, and envision yourself the way you want to look and feel. Don’t get discouraged if you slip now and then, and eat something you know you shouldn’t have. We’re all human. If you eat something you know isn’t good for you, enjoy it without feeling guilty. You don’t have to be perfect! It’s not what you do occasionally that counts, it’s what you do consistently on a daily basis.

L-phenylalanine is one of the main ingredients in these two Life Priority products:

September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month

When I turned 40 – 25 years ago – I reached a major turning point in my life.  I was not too many years from finishing a 16-year career in professional baseball, but I was also married with three young girls and was in a new career.  Tougher than dealing with all of that was the fact that, for the first time in my life, I was faced with feeling the physical and mental aging process.   I had less mental energy; I was losing my muscle mass expanding out of my size 34 jeans.  I started getting frequent mouth ulcers.  I got debilitating flu at least 2 times a year.  Luckily, in 1991, things changed for the better.

I was introduced to two nutritional research scientists, Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, whose lives’ work was to find out how to slow the aging process. Durk and Sandy shared truthful, scientific information with me about how using certain nutrients in adequate amounts could have a dramatic effect on my health.  My wife, Michelle, and I have been sharing this information through our company, Life Priority, since 1994.

As we all age, our risks of getting heart disease, high blood pressure, cancers, dementia, and other diseases increase.  In the case of men, there is also a chance for getting prostate cancer.

Since September is National Prostate Cancer Awareness month, every year I dedicate an article to helping educate men about simple steps for how to improve the health of the prostate gland. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among men, with an estimated 239,000 men diagnosed in 2013.

Here are my 4 simple tips to promote prostate health:

  • Get a yearly physical, including a prostate exam, with a healthcare professional.
  • Set lifestyle goals! Educate yourself about what certain nutrients and foods promote overall health, especially prostate heath.
  • Exercise! Be concerned about excess belly fat.
  • Take high-quality dietary supplements! These supplements are formulated to help insure against the gaps in your diet.

For overall health and to encourage a healthy prostate, consider consuming the following list of nutrients that should be in your diet, especially men that are 40 and older:  lycopene, zinc, vitamin D-3, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, and Co-Q 10. 

It is often difficult to get enough of these nutrients from your diet.  You can get most of the nutrients listed above from Life Priority through our One-Per-Meal Lifeguard, Omega-3 Priority, Prostate Priority, Sunlife, 3-Way Calcium, Magnesium Priority, and CoQ Priority products.

I personally use all of the Life Priority supplements listed above every day.  I am almost 65 and I do not take any medications. I no longer get colds, the flu or mouth ulcers.  I have great mental energy and focus.  Most of us can’t get everything that our body needs from the diet, so we hope you’ll reach your own turning point like I did!

Treat yourself to a healthier, more energetic life. Please investigate the information on each product listed above.  For a free, personal, nutritional counseling session with me, send me an email to customerservice@lifepriority.com or call me at 1-800-787-5438. 

Using some baseball terminology, I feel like I can “touch all of my bases” through the use of the 4 different Life Priority supplements below.   All men who want to “score” with their health, including the prostate, can hit a “Grand Slam” by using these 4 supplements every day:

  • One Per Meal Lifeguard™ – First Base – You can’t get to first base nutritionally without using a great multiple vitamin/mineral (multi) after  every meal to fill in the nutrition gaps lacking in your diet. One Per Meal is a potent, research-based, multi with a great blend of all of the B vitamins and potent anti-oxidants.  Take one capsule of One Per Meal Lifeguard™ 3 times a day after meals for a solid “base hit”.
  • Omega-3 Priority™ – Second Base – Get in scoring position with our Omega-3 Priority.  Omega-3 Priority is a pharmaceutical-grade, concentrated fish oil product that is good for both heart and brain health and the prostate.  Getting the essential omega-3 fatty acids in adequate amounts in the diet is difficult.  Researchers believe fish oil helps lower heart disease risk through several mechanisms: It mildly thins the blood, helps prevent arrhythmias, lowers triglyceride and homocysteine levels, and protects the cardiovascular system from inflammation. A 2011 study, a low-fat diet plus a hefty 5-gram daily dose of fish oil slowed prostate cancer cell proliferation in patients awaiting surgery. Another new study found that in healthy young people, fish oil lowered not only inflammation markers, but also anxiety.
  • Prostate Priority™ – Third Base – You are ready to score now with Prostate Priority.  Prostate Priority is a special blend of nutrients combined to support a health prostate.  These nutrients include saw palmetto, lycopene, pygeum, pumpkin seed oil extract, vitamin D3 and zinc.  Lycopene is a carotenoid found in tomatoes, papaya, and other reddish foods, Lycopene appears to increase antioxidant activity in the body protecting against DNA damage according to a recent study. The study also indicated that lycopene lowered heart disease risk factors like hypertension and C-reactive protein (CRP). Some research links high lycopene blood levels with protection against prostate and other cancers; eating lycopene-rich diced tomatoes or tomato paste also appears to protect against UV skin damage.
  • Sunlife™ – Home Plate – You will score with Sunlife.  You will get stranded on third base if you do not get adequate amounts of vitamin D3 in your diet.  One capsule of Sunlife provides 2,000 iu of Vitamin D3 in each capsule.  Despite a flood of recent research news supporting the values of vitamin D3 for the brain, bones, muscles, and the immune system, most people are deficient.  In several studies, low blood levels of vitamin D have been associated with increased heart disease risk.

I have my nutritional bases covered… Do you?  Don’t get caught looking at strike 3! An out of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
