The Smart Lift-No Calories, No Sugar

Energy drinks, diet drinks and vitamin-enriched water certainly look like great solutions for staying healthy and increasing energy; however, they aren’t as great as people would think. These drinks can use caffeine to help provide you with a boost, but it’s not healthy. Lift, on the other hand, is natural energy and mood booster that helps curb your appetite to aid in weight loss without infusing your body with unhealthy ingredients. Lift only uses 80 mg of caffeine to get your body warmed up, and instead helps to naturally stimulate your brain to create your own natural adrenaline.

Energy drinks are designed to give us the boost we need to power through the trials and tribulations of the day, but at what cost. Most energy drinks are packed full of sugar and caffeine and these can cause us to crash later when they wear off. Also, infusing the body with vast amounts of sugar and caffeine may cause insomnia, Liftnervousness, irritability, stomach aches and in severe cases, heart palpitations. Maybe these over-hyped, over marketed products should stay where they belong, not consumed by our precious bodies.

There are countless commercials advertising the wonderful benefits of diet drinks like sodas and teas made with artificial sweeteners because they have little or no calories. With people counting calories in an attempt to lose weight, these great-tasting drinks are very appealing, but they aren’t as effective as believed. If this happens, your cravings will intensify and therefore, you would be more likely to seek out sweet food or drinks to satisfy those cravings and lead to weight gain. Are all artificial sweeteners really healthy?

One of the big market drinks on the shelves today is vitamin-enriched water. These seemingly healthy drinks promise more energy, improved memory and boost your immune system. Who wouldn’t want something with this many benefits? Unfortunately, most are predominantly sugar water with only a few vitamins and minerals included. Not so great anymore is it?

Luckily, there is a product out there that can improve energy, curb your appetite and help with dieting and increase happiness; it’s called Lift. It was developed by a scientist who has a triple major and triple minor from MIT and has been available for the past 25 years. Lift is an all-natural energy drink mix that can help the body increase energy from within. Lift uses the natural stimulators of the body to help you stay more focused and alert through the day without the caffeine and sugar infusion. In addition, Lift can help the body realize when it’s full so you don’t keep eating or pick up fatty snacks later in the day.

So the next time you’re deciding between the three drinks above, choose Lift instead. As a Lift user for the past year, I can tell you I feel more confident when I look at the daunting tasks of the day knowing I have an all-natural alternative to staying healthy and keeping myself in shape.

Brush Up On Healthy Habits!

Our parents always asked us if we had brushed our teeth when we were younger, and they may have been on to something with their persistence. Other than the obvious benefits of healthy teeth like having a nice smile and a clean mouth, brushing your teeth also helps the rest of your body. With so many germs on our hands and the food we eat, a clean mouth is the first line of defense to keep our body healthy and protected.

How are oral health and overall health connected?

Brushing TeethBacteria can be found almost anywhere on or within our body, but most bacteria are harmless. Simple prevention methods like washing your hands, bathing and practicing good oral hygiene can prevent serious problems and health risk from occurring. However, without proper hygiene, especially brushing and flossing, bacteria can reach dangerous levels. Oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease can be particularly crippling due to their delicate nature. Practicing good oral hygiene is a must.

Improper dental care can lead to larger health issues that may include cardiovascular disease, diabetes, endocarditis, and various other conditions.  Also, some medications like painkillers and decongestants may reduce your natural saliva flow. Saliva is important because it rinses/washes away food and helps break down acids from bacteria in the mouth saliva washes away food and neutralizes acids produced by bacteria in the mouth. Thus, saliva is crucial in protecting you from an overgrowth of bacteria in your mouth that could lead to more harmful health issues.

Life Priority’s Suggestions to Improve Oral Health

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day (after breakfast and before bed)
  • We suggest a NON-Fluoride toothpaste, like Tom’s Fluoride-Free Toothpaste
  • Floss daily. I prefer to use a floss with wax, coupled with The Doctor’s BrushPicks
  • Eat a healthy diet and limit between-meal snacks. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and fresh juice
  • Take your supplements to insure a healthy foundation, specifically Calcium for healthier teeth

Calcium helps to maintain healthy teeth.  When calcium levels are low, the jawbone surrenders the mineral to other areas of the body in need. As the jaw weakens, teeth loosen, creating gaps susceptible to bacteria that can cause infection, inflammation and bleeding.

  • Replace your toothbrush every three to four months or sooner if bristles are frayed. I would suggest Oral-B because it’s a quality American-made product.
  • Schedule regular dental checkups at least every 6 months. Contact your dentist as soon as an oral health problem arises. Please notify your dentist if you’re taking any medications.

Need a calcium boost?

Life Priority's 3-Way Calcium Complex Supplement

If you need a little help getting enough calcium in our diet, our  3-Way Calcium™ supplement offers three different sources of Calcium, tricalcium phosphate, calcium citrate, calcium ascorbate, calcium borate for high bioavailability and absorption, so they reach your bones quicker and are utilized more effectively. 3-Way Calcium™ also includes several nutrient co-factors which help the body use calcium ABCD. Four capsules of Durk & Sandy’s 3-Way Calcium™ contain 1,000 mg of calcium, the same amount in 20 ounces of milk and 800 iu of Vitamin D, or the amount in 1/2 gallon of fortified milk.

Lift Your Attitude in 15 Minutes!

Yoga at summitBeep. Beep. Beep. No one really looks forward to their alarm clock in the morning. It disrupts our wonderful sleep and relaxation, and catapults us into the day ahead. The courage and drive to leave the comforts of your bed can be difficult; in fact so challenging that people often set their alarm for as late as possible and then hit the snooze until the point of being late for work. The process of changing such a habit it tough, but developing the right attitude is the most important step to success.

With so many distractions and responsibilities in life, people always say, “There isn’t enough time in the day.” This may seem true at first glance but waking up 15 minutes early can have a wondrous effect on our daily lives. Imagine having time to work out, take a walk, meditate or just have time to yourself in a chaotic world. Think about how much better your mental state could be.

Charles Swindoll once said, “I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” So, if people can find extra free time by waking up earlier, our mental health could vastly improve and thus lead to a happier, healthier and productive you. Of course, everyone values their sleep, so try going to sleep earlier and setting your alarm 15 minutes early, and make sure to turn on lights or place the alarm out of arms length so you’re more apt to actually get up.

In addition to healthier mind, the extra time could be used to better you physically and/or spiritually. You can use the time to walk, jog, run or pray. Almost everyone feels they need to lose a few pounds and waking up earlier could be all the motivation someone needs.

You may be asking how I can do this with the hectic holiday season in full swing, but you can wait until the New Year to start. Don’t make it a job. In other words, make it fun and even reward yourself for having a better sleeping habit. Also, some other good habits to acquire or build on for the New Year include eating more fruits and vegetables, eating smaller portion sizes and cooking at home and sitting down to dinner with the family on a more regular basis.

Like me, you may also need a little extra boost or kick in the rear to get going on these changes. Finding a workout buddy or a friend who pledges to complete the steps with you is extremely helpful and can ensure success without getting off track. In the case you can’t find someone to be your “healthy partner” you can invest in Lift, which is an all-natural energy drink mix that can help the body increase energy from within. Lift uses Life Priority Lift Powderthe natural stimulators of the body to help you stay more focused and alert through the day without the caffeine and sugar infusion. In addition, Lift can help the body realize when it’s full so you don’t keep eating or pick up fatty snacks later in the day.

Making changes can be scary, but make it your daily resolution to create a better attitude and more healthy habits. Choosing to make the small changes in your daily routine can create huge improvements to your mental and physical health in the long run.

Need Some Productive Sleep?

sleep

It’s two in the morning, you have a big day ahead, but you can’t stop looking at the clock and dreading the fast approaching alarm. Nights like these seem to become more frequent as you age and losing sleep isn’t good. Doctors suggest 7-8 hours of restful sleep to recharge our batteries for the trials and tribulations of daily life, but how often do we actually feel rested in the morning? The usual routine consists of hitting the snooze button multiple times before falling out of bed and reaching for the first caffeinated beverage. This too is not healthy.

Current sleep aides on the market seem great, but often fall short of achieving the rested feeling when waking. How can you obtain this seemingly fleeting concept? Our answer is Productive Sleep. It’s Life Priority’s latest supplement designed by life extension scientist Durk Pearson and Sandy Shaw, it was specifically designed to help you feel rested and more alert in the morning.

Most nights, people lay down and think about their day, plan for the next or worry about what’s ultimately out of their control. Quieting the mind isn’t always easy. The Productive Sleep formulas contains gabba, choline, thenuses glycine to help your mind reach a state of relaxation and achieve REM (rapid eye movement) which is the ultimate sleep goal. REM allows you mind to power down and get ready for the next day; it also helps with memory and retention. Glycine helps improve fatigue, liveliness, peppiness and clear-headedness. Productive Sleep utilizes glycine along with other ingredients that combine to deliver one of the top sleep-aides on the market today. Productive Sleep is so great, that you can take it before a nap to get the most out of those necessary 30 minute power naps. Unlike other products, Productive Sleep doesn’t leave you feeling groggy if you don’t sleep for a full eight hours.

Using Productive Sleep can also help you monitor your weight. Studies have shown that sleep deprivation lowers your levels of a hormone that regulates appetite called leptin. So if you don’t get a good night’s rest, you can feel hungrier during the day and overeat which leads to weight gain.

In addition to using Productive Sleep, try exercising at least 30 minutes a day to tire your body, cut out caffeine before bed and use the bathroom before you get in bed. All of these things can help you sleep through the night and feel rested in the morning.

June and Men’s Health!

This month we are all taking time out to honor the important men in our lives by 67602-father-day-tip-advice-good-perfect-dad-treat-attention-family-health-spry__crop-landscape-534x0celebrating Father’s Day. At Life Priority we encourage you to recognize the DAD’S and  male role models who have coached us, encouraged us, loved us, and provided for us.taught us and protected us.  At Life Priority want to express our sincere gratitude  and take June as special month to focus on Men’s health. We all need support and encouragement so help are our top tips to support those special DAD”S and role models.

At Life Priority, our mission is health, and we can’t think of any better gift to give our dads than that of increased wellness and energy. That’s why this month we are offering a few men’s health tips that can help fathers enjoy their families for years to come!

1. Don’t smoke. By now this should go without saying, but many men still cling to the cigarette habit. Unfortunately, smoking dramatically increases your risk for heart disease, cancer and a number of other diseases and is responsible for one in five deaths in the United States every year. Dads, if you want to be around to enjoy your family, give yourself the gift of kicking the smoking habit!

2. Watch your weight. This so much more than just about looking good. Maintaining a healthy weight increases your quality of life by giving you energy, decreasing your risk of death and disease and by helping ward off depression. Find ways to incorporate more healthy foods into your diet in place of junk foods and make time for regular exercise.

3. Drink wisely. There are so many benefits to limiting alcohol intake to a moderate level that we could write another blog entirely on this subject. Excessive alcohol increases your risk for disease, depression, accidents and social irresponsibility. And, of course, by not limiting your alcohol, you also run the risk of addiction. Don’t put yourself or your family in that situation. Limit yourself to, at most, one or two standard-sized drinks per day.

4. Get checked out. While it’s not fun, it’s still necessary to see your doctor regularly and be screened for high cholesterol, high blood pressure and common cancers. Early detection is particularly key when it comes to colon and prostate cancer, so don’t put this on the backburner. Bite the bullet and get on your doctor’s calendar!

5. Take your vitamins! While they’re not an excuse to avoid healthy foods, common multivitamins and supplements can go a long way in preventing health problems. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist about your specific needs and what vitamins and supplements would be right for you based on lifestyle and family history.

They say that the best gifts in life are free, and we believe that’s true—especially when it comes to health. If you are a dad or just hope to become one someday, give yourself a great Father’s Day gift by choosing to take care of your health. Wellness is the kind of present that will keep on giving long after the golf clubs or neckties have lost their appeal. So take our advice and choose to live a full, fit life. And, if there’s any way we at Life Priority can help you get started and stay on track, call us today!
