Don’t Neglect Your Brain, Muscles, and Joints

by Greg Pryor, Life Priority co-owner and former Kansas City Royal from the 1985 Championship team

Although I was a pro baseball player for 16 years, my real love in high school and college was golf. I sometimes wonder what might have happened if my life had gravitated towards playing competitive golf instead of baseball.

The reason that I was more drawn to golf than baseball was it was more of an individual performance rather than a team performance. Unlike golf, baseball has umpires, pitchers, and managers, who can have a direct adverse effect on the outcome of your performance (or even if you get in the game). In golf, it is basically your clubs, the course and the weather.

Golf and baseball swings have many similarities. During both swings it is essential to watch the ball, have minimal head movement, and get proper weight shift and follow through. A major difference in the swings is the amount of time between swings. A golfer has several minutes between shots to think about how the next swing (or putt). A baseball player is required to make most swing decisions in a split second. Regardless, playing competitive golf or baseball requires a high level of mental concentration and communication between the brain and muscles.

Hitting a golf ball or a baseball square is mentally physically demanding. Both swings require a certain amount of “muscle memory’ to make the necessary body movements to do what is required to hit the ball square at impact. Both swings also require a quick mental “cleansing” before the next shot or swing. The relationship between the brain and muscles in any athletic endeavor is all controlled by neurotransmitters.

Everything that happens in your brain, every memory, every thought, every emotion, every innovation, every “wow, that’s great!” is a result of the release of neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are natural substances made by nerve cells in your brain (acquired from your diet) that transmit messages from one nerve cell to another across the synapse that divides them. There is a very good chance that even if you have a good diet, you’re not getting the optimum amount of the raw materials that your brain can use to make neurotransmitters. Contact me at customerservice@lifepriority.com for more info on neurotransmitters.

Athletes who achieve quicker muscle recovery have a better chance to win or succeed at their chosen sport. Muscle Memory™, a product from Life Priority is used prior to exercise (like the repetitious hitting of a golf ball or baseball), to help increase muscle endurance and quicker muscle recovery after exercise. The “miracle molecule” generated from using Muscle Memory improves heart health, energy levels, and impacts every cell, tissue and organ in your body.

Joint inflammation can really hinder optimal performance. To ease joint pain and inflammation many athletes use glucosamine, the main building block for healthy cartilage. Sam Snead, a famous pro golfer, said that when he played well his joints felt “oily”. For a more “oily” golf or baseball swing, I invite you to consider Life Priority’s Joint Decision™ and Total Joint Complex™.

Whether you are trying to perfect the art of hitting of any ball, do not neglect the most important aspects of your swing–your brain, your muscles and your joints.

To your Health! Greg Pryor

Slowing Up the Aging Process in a Fast-Paced World

In today’s fast-paced lifestyles, most men are faced with increasing mental and physical Greg Royals 1985demands as they age. Personally, I have found that an easy, logical way to slow up my aging process is to keep my body and brain more fit through the use of a few essential supplements with each meal.

I urge all men to consider, at least, the use of the following supplements: a high-quality multi to insure immune support, a potent omega-3 supplement for heart and brain health, specific nutrients that help promote a healthy prostate, and a simple amino sugar (glucosamine) for cartilage health.

I feel that the consistent, daily use of the right nutrients in supplement form (and in adequate amounts!) is one of the most important health decisions that we can make. Based on the past 20 years of being in the dietary supplement industry through my company, Life Priority, and my 16 year career as a pro athlete, I feel strongly that using high-quality supplements is imperative. No matter what you have read or what your doctor, chiropractor, nutritionist, etc. might suggest, your diet is most likely lacking in one or more essential nutrients. You can help yourself feel better and slow up your personal aging process by using high-quality supplements.

I have been involved as a retail customer or a marketer of dietary supplements since 1991. Prior to ’91, I was not aware of the value or importance of getting certain nutrients in my body on a consistent basis. Don’t leave your physical and mental well-being up to anyone else! It’s your life! Your body, including your brain, is aging each day and you can give yourself a better chance at living a healthier (and happier!) life by simply using enough of the right nutrients each day with meals or at bedtime.

Life Priority, Inc., was formed in 1994 to provide customers with time-tested high quality, research-based, scientifically-formulated health and nutritional products. A major life-extension-bookreason that Life Priority was formed was because of the research of 2 scientists who were the co-authors of a NY Times best-seller Life Extension, A Practical Scientific Approach, which was written specifically for doctors. The authors, Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, wrote Life Extension do that doctors could understand how using certain nutrients in adequate amounts could slow up the aging process.

Durk and Sandy’s multi-vitamin/mineral formula, One Per Meal Lifeguard, contains 25 different nutrients. Each Lifeguard capsule, meant to be used after meals 3 times per day, contains more than the minimum RDA’s. Three other Life Priority products, Omega-3 Priority, Prostate Priority, and Joint Decision/Total Joint Complex provide specific nutrients not contained in the Lifeguard product but do not contain many essential nutrients for specific areas of the body.

Take the advice of someone who, in 1991 at the age of 42, was enlightened by experts in the dietary supplement industry regarding the aging process–get more essential nutrients in your body each day by using “nutrition that you can feel!”

To Your Health!

Dr. Jill Young-Endorsement for Total Joint Complex™

Dear Michelle and Greg,

I wanted to thank you for continuing to provide Total Joint Complex™ to those interested in optimal joint health.

I have used this product personally and professionally since 1994.

My first exposure to your Total Joint Complex™  product was actually through the mother of a massage therapist who worked in my office.  She reported her mother had suffered for years with a damaged knee and had been told repeatedly that replacement surgery was necessary for any quality of life.  While she was desperate enough to finally consider surgery, she first wanted to try one last natural option.  That option was Total Joint Complex™.

After only a few short months of use as recommended, this woman was functioning without pain with increased mobility.  That is when I decided the product deserved a personal look.

I have used Total Joint Complex™ for years and my knees thank me.  Anyone who has experienced either knee or shoulder pain knows these two pains are extremely intense.  The times I have slacked on my personal supplement regimen I always jump right back on as my knees feel years older without Total Joint Complex™.

Everyone I have on Total Joint Complex™ reports not being able to imagine managing the nature effects of aging or the consequences of prior sports injuries or the residual damage from auto accidents without the help of Total Joint Complex™.

For the scientist in all of us, if you haven’t tried this product, why not experiment to see what benefits you may enjoy?

Life Priority, thank you for making this high quality product Total joint Complex. I appreciate your dedication to excellence.

Jill Young, D.C. Winfield, KS

Make Every Day Your Opening Day for Fitness

Article by Greg Pryor published in Kansas City Sports & Fitness.

Greg Pryor - Kansas City RoyalsKansas City Royals fans are eagerly looking forward to Opening Day at Kauffman Stadium.  We are tired of single digit temperatures and melting snow drifts. Another “opener” is our signal of the beginning of warmer, sunny days ahead. Every spring from ‘67 to ’87, I was getting ready for another opening day for my college baseball team (’67-’71), or the professional team that I was with (’71-’87).  Maybe you should create an opening day attitude for your fitness schedule.

Your personal fitness goals ought to be structured so that you are prepared to get the most out of your exercise.  Most importantly, and as a compliment to a good diet, you should use dietary supplements to promote your recovery process.    You don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from supplements. It’s not all about being able to clock a faster time or lift more weight; supplements also serve as an insurance policy against the additional stress and energy needs brought on by exercise.

“It’s like you have one car to drive around for the rest of your life,” said Liz Applegate, Ph.D.,professor of nutrition at the University of California – Davis, and author of the Encyclopedia of Sports and Fitness Nutrition (Prima Publishing, 2002). “You wouldn’t start taking care of it after it was 20 years old. You would do regular maintenance.”

Just as a car’s maintenance needs change as it gets older, so do those of an active aging body.

“In general, nutrient requirements increase with exercise,” Applegate said. “But at different ages there are other considerations that come into play as well.”

  • Certain nutrients, not readily found in adequate amounts in the modern diet, can help encourage your mental energy and motivation in your job or workouts.  In 1991, I found two supplements, LIFT™ and MIND™ from Life Priority, that I use every day to help me feel bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to tackle each day like it is opening day!
  • Then, protecting the health of cartilage, tendons and ligaments should be at the top of your list as you exercise.  Glucosamine is a smart choice to support joint health and help speed recovery from injury or over use. Life Priority offers two great products for joint inflammation, JOINT DECISION™ and TOTAL JOINT COMPLEX™.
  • Exercise itself produces free radicals so, to prevent free radical damage to muscle tissue and from causing inflammation and soreness, use a mix of antioxidants prior to exercise. I suggest either the Life Priority ONE PER MEAL LIFEGUARD™ or LIFESHEILD™.
  • Finally, an amino acid that I have known about since ’91, arginine, is one of the most valuable nutrients that you can use prior to exercise.  Email me at customerservice@lifepriority.com for a free report on arginine and how to use it (available in the Life Priority product, MUSCLE MEMORY™) effectively for the best workouts of your life (and quicker recovery!)

No matter what your age, your body needs certain essential nutrients every day in adequate amounts. Don’t take your body and brain for granted!  Give it the best chance to have a great opening day, every day!
