Designed by a naturopathic physician, Kinder Well is a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs formulated to help fortify and support healthy immune function.
It supplies specific ingredients to support the body’s natural production of white blood cells, including T-cells and neutrophils along with immune-supportive anthocyanins, flavonoids and polyphenols.
The immune system begins to develop from the moment we are born gradually maturing throughout infancy into adulthood. Immune antibodies (IgG) transfer from mother to baby during pregnancy and through breast milk, providing critical early protection against infectious diseases. As this fades away children become more vulnerable to certain infections as the innate and adaptive immunities mature. Children may still acquire bacterial, parasitic and viral infections that will be regulated and fought off with immune responses. Thus creating immunological memory and providing protection with increased immune responses. (1) “Optimal immune function is dependent on a healthy immune system. In turn, adequate nutrition is crucial to ensure a good supply of the energy sources, macronutrients and micronutrients required for the development, maintenance and expression of the immune response.” (2) Studies have shown that vitamins A, C, D, E, B2, B6 and B12, folic acid, beta carotene, iron, selenium, and zinc are most needed to sustain immunocompetence.

We received this wonderful testimonial during a conference, and wanted to share Jeff’s story with you. Thank you so much to Jeff, whom we are so glad to have helped with our Healthy Heart formula!
“I am a 50 yr. old male with no prior cardiac conditions, no family history of cardiac issues. I eat well, never smoked , not much of a drinker. I’ve been a competitive athlete my entire life-I’m in excellent physical condition. This is why it was so shocking when I experienced my first Afib episode about four years ago. I woke up in the middle of the night to my heart racing and doing flips in my chest. To say it scared me is a huge understatement. After being told at the ER that night that I did indeed experience an Afib episode, I earnestly began researching this seemingly debilitating health issue. I saw a couple cardiologists and they wanted to put me on blood-thinners, as well as a couple other drugs. I wanted no part of this. I was determined to treat this problem naturopathically. I began to see a pattern developing when I had an Afib episode. They happened every now and then, but they only occurred in the middle of the night and they lasted for about 4-6 hours. There was one glaring trigger: alcohol. Even if I only had one beer with dinner(I only had a beer once in awhile anyway), I would automatically go into an Afib episode later that night. That was an easy decision. No more alcohol (at all). I also began to research different herbs that might help alleviate my Afib. I was well-verses in anything natural that could help alleviate afib. I decided to see an ND for my issue and see ordered a bunch of tests. She also told me to start taking a supplement called Healthy Heart by Priority One Vitamins. I examined every ingredient with a fine-tooth comb. This supplement had EVERY ingredient that I had been researching over the previous six months. Long story short…after realizing a couple other triggers for my Afib attacks (high sodium, high sugar, and alcohol), I’ve developed a winning recipe for keeping Afib at bay. I take Healthy Heart 3x day, drink a gallon of water every day (staying hydrated in essential for Afib patients, no alcohol, and keeping my sodium/sugar levels low). There isn’t a better supplement on the market for AFib sufferers!”

October Special Product Spotlight – Methyl Cycle and B-12 Support
This month we are featuring Methyl Balance and B-12 Rapid Shot
Methyl Balance is a balanced support for the whole methyl cycle in a physician designed, patient result oriented formulation.*
Dr. Paul Anderson designed this supplement as both a chronic support for people needing the whole methyl cycle and associated pathways supported, as well as a next step maintenance formula for those no longer needing higher dose methyl cycle support.
The nutrients are in doses and forms designed to create support with balance. Dose intensity can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing daily dose without altering the balance effect.*
B12 Rapid Shot was designed to support the rapid delivery of high potency B12 without the pain.* It is a great tasting high potency B12 supplying 5,000mcg of methylcobalamin per nano tablet.
Methylcobalamin is the active form of vitamin B12 that acts as a cofactor for methionine synthase in the normal conversion of homocysteine to methionine.
It also acts as a methyl donor and participates in the synthesis of SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine), a nutrient that is active in individuals with normal responses to occasional external stressors.*
Buy Methyl-Balance, get B-12 Rapid Shot free!

The lymphatic system is our secondary circulatory system. It plays an important role in supporting our immune system and treating inflammation in the body. The lymphatic system circulates throughout the entire body. The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic fluid, lymphatic vessels, lymphatic nodes, the spleen, the thymus, tonsils and Peyer’s patches in the gut. The lymphatic system drains and cleans up all the tissues in our body.
Lymph nodes are biological filtering units and are distributed throughout the body. Lymph nodes produce white blood cells called lymphocytes that defend the body against microorganisms and other harmful pathogens or toxins in the lymphatic fluid before it returns to the blood stream.
The obvious sign that the lymphatic system is congested or not flowing effectively is edema or swelling, but there is often more subtle signs such as lowered immune function, chronic infection, chronic inflammation and reduced detoxification capacity. Reduced immune reactivity is another sign of lymphatic congestion. The immune system can become less reactive to microorganisms or toxins if the body is in acidosis, therefore when a person says that they never get sick, it is not necessarily a good sign.
Promoting lymphatic drainage is significant in addressing inflammation. The lymphatic system removes and filters inflammatory mediators.
The lymphatic system can become congested from food intolerances, immune challenges, heavy metals, environmental toxins, surgery, scars or structural imbalances.
Food intolerances can lead to the ineffective breakdown of foods where certain proteins get caught in the lymphatic fluid. Immune challenges such as viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites whereby the lymphatic system is working to removing and eliminate these pathogens from circulation can lead to congestion of the lymphatic system. Heavy metals and environmental toxins will congest the lymphatic system as they overload the detoxification pathways and this leads to chronic inflammation. Scars or surgery or structural imbalances can lead to physical barriers in effective drainage of the lymphatic system.
When trying to improve lymphatic circulation, it important to also understand flow pathways of this closed internal system. We have a superficial lymphatic system that drains our head, neck, skin and breast tissue. Then we have a deep lymphatic system that drains all of our deep vital organs. The superficial lymphatic system drains into the deep lymphatic system, the fluid then filters through the liver and empties out the colon.
Most typical lymphatic massages only focus on the superficial lymphatic system and without properly stimulating the deep lymphatic system, there cannot be proper drainage of the superficial lymphatic system into the deep lymphatic system. Also if the liver is congested or the colon is not moving effectively, then can back up the system and cause congestion of the lymphatic system.
In order to support proper lymphatic drainage, the deep lymphatic system needs to be stimulated, the liver to be supported and the bowels need to be moving effectively.

Zinc for healthy glowing skin? Absolutely! Recent studies in Turkey have shown that zinc supplementation helps your body’s natural protection processes. Especially in the skin. It soothes redness and maintains normal oil production minimizing breakouts.
This research shows that people who suffer from acne have lower levels of zinc compared to the control group of those with clear skin, In one study alone the difference was 24% between the two groups.
When bacteria invade a blocked pore they sometimes cause severe irritation in the area. This is the source of the red painful bumps associated with breakouts.
Furthermore, these studies show that acne prone skin reacts stronger to this bacteria than non-acne prone skin.
Zinc is a strong antioxidant, it maintains lower levels of keratin in the skin allowing for the pores to open and remain clear easier.
Remember Zinc Orotate is known for its high bio-availability and has been shown to be effective against all breakouts.
Zinc Orotate was one of our most popular products in 2017!

Biofilms are little communities of organisms in your body that join forces to avoid elimination. The protective coating they form is officially called a polymer matrix, which is like a “force field” or barrier that keeps drugs like antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals or any other antimicrobial from being effective in removing them. They are a huge concern in the medical community at the moment, however, many patients and physicians don’t even know about them.
Biofilms are capable of adapting to many environments and thus can be found in all parts of the body. These areas include teeth, sinuses, tonsils, eustachian tubes of the middle ear and the intestines. Biofilms in the intestines can lead to chronic digestive and allergic responses often seen in difficult cases.
The immune system is responsible for attacking, controlling and eliminating biofilms. In healthy individuals, this happens regularly, however, in susceptible individuals, biofilms can take hold and begin to wreak havoc on the whole body, specifically the immune system.
By launching an attack on the biofilms via immune cells (macrophages, natural killer cells, cytotoxic T cells and T lymphocytes) the body also creates a significant amount of inflammation. What happens then is the immune system shifts to what we call a TH2 dominant state with the TH1 cells in a lowered state. By shifting to TH2 dominance, the body is then unable to launch a full TH1 attack and eliminate the biofilm. It is most likely constantly battling the biofilm, but simply doesn’t have enough strength to eliminate it.
A TH2 dominant state is very common in many conditions. The TH2 dominant state is what we find in many people with traditional allergies. If you have an overactive TH2 dominant system, you will tend to have food allergies and sensitivities or airborne allergies and an increase in histamine release. This may even be confused with histamine intolerance. Some things that may push someone towards TH2 dominance include genetic predisposition, toxic substances and heavy metal exposure.
Biofilms and the Gut
One of the reasons you may have biofilms in the first place is due to early exposure to antibiotics. There are actually good biofilms that can be destroyed by antibiotics. These good biofilms and healthy gut flora provide a natural type of defense to foreign invaders. Without the good biofilms as a defense mechanism, bad biofilms can proliferate and destroy the gut lining and increase permeability, a term commonly coined as “leaky gut”. With leaky gut, the intestinal barrier is compromised and allows substances to move into the bloodstream. By allowing different substances into the bloodstream, inflammation begins and things such as food allergies and sensitivities eventually alter the health of the immune system. The leaky gut will lead us to a TH2 dominant state as I mentioned above. Leaky gut also can slow down digestion, decrease toxin clearance and initiate proinflammatory chemicals.
Research in gut health and immune system responses to permeable gut linings are revealing significantly new understandings into how these natural defenses work. This new research also helps us learn how to support the body’s ability to maintain a balanced and healthy gut flora.
