Love Your Liver

Holidays, weekends, social gatherings, special events, and even stressful situations often include alcohol.

The liver is a focus when it comes to alcohol consumption. This is partly because alcohol is broken down with the help of an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) in the liver, and also because the liver takes a big hit when alcohol is consumed in excess. When you drink heavy amounts of alcohol, the alcohol dehydrogenase enzyme is not able to keep up with breaking the alcohol down proportionately and the excess alcohol wreaks havoc on the liver. Some of the major health concerns related to heavy alcohol consumption or binge drinking include alcoholic fatty liver disease, liver cirrhosis, and liver cancer. 

Would you like a better balance with alcohol? If you have been relying on alcohol for mood and social support, or reliant on it for so long that you have grown tolerant or dependent on it – then doing a reset is a great way to help. A change like this can assist with alcohol abstinence, support the liver and a healthier, stress-free lifestyle.  

Using a combination of herbs and nutrients that address the adrenal glands and liver while at the same time help to decrease the cravings is a good way to get a whole-body reset. My favorite trio includes Priority One’s supplements Lithium, Priority Lipo, and Adrenoplex. Used in combination, they can help support normal elimination from the liver, provide nourishment and promote a healthy response to stress. 

Lithium – Research shows that lithium offers neuroprotective support and may offer neuronal protection from the effects of alcohol. Excess alcohol can lead to a loss of neurons, specifically in the central nervous system, and supplementing with lithium may decrease the extent of neuron apoptosis (programmed cell death). Low-dose lithium has also been shown to promote the abstinence of alcohol consumption. 

Priority Lipo – Is a formula that includes many amazing herbs and nutrients specific for liver support. The ingredients included are known to decrease inflammation, lower lipid levels, provide antioxidant support, and protect liver cells from damage. Plants like dandelion root, barberry, milk thistle, beet and green tea aid with reducing free radical damage, offer protection from oxidative stress, and reduce triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Liver supporting Ayurvedic herbs as well as vitamin and mineral enzyme cofactors are also added.  

Adrenoplex – Includes the adaptogenic herb Eleuthero as well as Licorice which can help to extend the half-life of cortisol. It also contains vitamins A and C as well as the mineral Zinc which are important for a healthy immune response. Adrenal and pituitary glandulars are also added based on the concept pioneered by Dr. John Bastyr that glandular concentrates support like organs to maintain a healthy state. In combination, these nutrients help to maintain balanced cortisol levels, support the body’s natural immune response, and encourage a healthy stress response.

Focus on our Seniors in February! 20% off Senior Immune & Senior Calm

Presenting our February special featuring formulas focused on the seniors in our lives! Both products are a chewable, making them easy to use.

Support immunity with Senior Immune & promote a balanced mood with Senior Calm.
Both products are 20% off this month!
👨🏽‍🦳👩🏽‍🦳

Senior Immune was developed to compliment an active, healthy and independent lifestyle. Immune response is vitally important to our health,
as our body’s innate ability to fight off infections and protect us from pathogens is key as we age.

Preventing deficiencies of zinc and vitamin D3 is an important way to support the mature immune system.  Recent studies have shown that the elderly population can be chronically low in both of these important nutrients. 

Senior Immune features Zinc and D3 to support mature immune systems. It also includes ingredients such as: ascorbic acid and astragalus root – both providing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. William’s elderberry, packed with antioxidants. Copper, beta glucan, and olive leaf – all to support heart health and provide liver protection.  All of these vitally important ingredients are combined in a delicious and natural coconut-papaya flavored chewable tablet.

Senior Calm is our other newest chewable designed to encourage a balanced mood. This supplement, offered in a delicious Tropical Punch Vanilla flavor, features Magnesium – associated with fighting depression and Gamma Amino Butric Acid (GABA) – to aid in anxiety reduction.

Senior Calm also features Lemon Balm – an ingredient to promote calm and ease feelings of stress, as well as 5-Hydroxy Tryptophan and Rhodiola Rosea – both to aid in relieving anxiety and fatigue.

We’re excited to offer a family of supplements for seniors that promote a healthy and relaxed state of well-being and support healthy immunity.

Stay Active

We have been waiting a long time for the sun to come out over here in the Pacific Northwest. The sun is finally showing her beautiful face and as the days grow longer, so will the time we can spend outdoors. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, fall and winter are the times to rest and draw in while spring and summer are the times for being active and expanding. 

Aside from the many wonderful recreational benefits we can enjoy from being active outdoors – connecting with friends, family and engaging in our favorite sports – let’s not forget the amazing health benefits there are as well! Staying active has been shown to improve sleep, help with depression, decrease cardiovascular risk factors and balance blood sugar. 

Whether you are staying active by taking walks in the park, swimming, or doing something more intense like playing sports, hiking, mountain biking, or marathon running, we have you covered! Priority One’s Proto-Zyme and Priority Zyme are powerhouse supplements that include proteolytic enzymes to support healthy joints, muscles, and circulation. 

Priority One debuted with 4 products back in 1988, and Proto-Zyme was one of them! It is a powerful proteolytic enzyme tablet designed to support your body’s normal connective tissue repair and synthesis. It also has nutrients like zinc, lysozyme, cellulose and thymus that can aid in maintaining a healthy immune system. 

For more strenuous exercise, Priority Zyme is a high potency formula that provides nutritional support for cellular health, containing ample amounts of proteolytic enzymes. Proteolytic enzymes support a healthy inflammatory response due to strenuous exercise. Enzymes are essential for metabolism, and play a key role in the optimal function of a healthy body. Other benefits of proteolytic enzymes include support for healthy joints and muscles, immune support, and post-surgical support.

How do EPA & DHA support our health?

Priority One Vitamins EPA-DHA

Cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative disease and general inflammation are prevalent in society. They can significantly decrease quality of life and impact longevity. Thankfully, nature has provided us with beneficial omega-3 fatty acids that can support each of these areas!

EPA-DHA is an abbreviation for eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids. These essential fatty acids are vital nutrients needed for the synthesis of prostaglandins, formation of neurotransmitters, support of a healthy cardiovascular system and support of normal eye function. 

The human body is able to make most of the fats it needs for daily function from raw materials. The exception to this is the omega-3 fatty acids. Because we are not able to produce these fats from scratch, they are called essential fatty acids, meaning we have to get them from food sources. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in fish, nuts, flax seed, flaxseed oil, and some leafy vegetables.

Because omega-3 fatty acids are a major component of cell membranes and play a part in the function of cell receptors, inflammation modulation is one of their many benefits. This includes modulating inflammatory skin concerns, cardiovascular function and joint conditions.

Both EPA and DHA are omega-3 fatty acids that are mainly found in fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, and other cold water fish. Including these foods in meal plans can be beneficial for reducing inflammation, supporting the formation of phosphatidylserine which is important brain function and supporting a healthy heart and vascular system. Taking a nutritional supplement rich in EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids is a great way to  provide additional support.  

EPA-DHA is 20% off for the month of March! Use discount code “OMEGA” on our website to receive the special pricing.

Black Cumin (seed) has many benefits, including aiding in healthy cholesterol metabolism, balancing a body’s natural inflammation responses in the body and playing a role in optimal blood pressure. Not to be confused with cumin (brown), black cumin is also called black seed, caraway or fennel flower. It’s is commonly found in SW Asia and parts of the Mediterranean/Africa. Used for centuries in herbal medicine for inflammation reduction, Priority One is proud to feature this incredible ingredient in Biofilm.

Immunity Support Season

It’s that time of year again! We all notice the weather changing, the days becoming shorter, and watch the trees lose their colorful leaves. This time also creates an awareness that the immune system needs to be supported – to prevent, or at least lessen, the severity of illnesses associated with the season. This may include viral colds, flus, and other respiratory challenges.

What can be done to support the immune system?

Of course, there are lifestyle habits that are great for supporting the immune system like: getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, finding ways to decrease or manage stress, and eating nutrient-dense foods. Taking a nutritional supplement formulated with specific immune supporting nutrients is another great way to provide additional targeted support.

Every age group has its own special needs when it comes to targeted immune support. Children have their unique set of challenges, as they are in close contact with other children their age, as well as dealing with the stress of school, while their immune system is still learning “what-is-what”. Adults have a set of changes too as the immune system ages, it is not as robust as it used to be, making the body more prone to illness.

Priority One Vitamins has formulated nutritional supplements with these needs in mind – we have created a line of immune supporting supplements that can be helpful for any age group. These include our products Bio Vegetarian, Super Bio Vegetarian, Senior Immune, Kindermune, Kinder Well, and Beta Glucan. These formulas were designed to support the body’s natural immune response using a combination of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, while the added support of plant constituents, spices, glandulars, enzymes, and medicinal mushrooms are included for powerful immunity protection.

For the month of November, our top immunity support formulas are 20% off. Additionally, we are offering a chance to win $150 gift certificate. Email us at marketing@priorityonevitamins.com with subject “Immunity Support” for your entry into the drawing !

Supporting the Thyroid Gland

A well-functioning thyroid gland is imperative for metabolism, cardiovascular health, as well as growth and development. 

The thyroid’s primary function is to secrete the hormones T3 and T4 which increase metabolism affecting almost every body tissue. It increases gut motility, absorption and assimilation of nutrients, and the breakdown of glucose and fats. It also helps to improve blood flow and body temperature through the combined effect of increased mitochondrial function, breathing rate, and heart rate. Last but not least, it is necessary for growth and development and plays a major role in sleep, mood, brain function, and sexual function. Needless to say, the thyroid is a very important organ in the body!

When the thyroid is not functioning optimally symptoms can fall on either side of the spectrum ranging from mild discomfort to life-threatening depending on the severity. Thyroid dysfunction can be debilitating and cause a lot of stress physically, mentally, and emotionally. Supporting the thyroid to maintain a healthy state is a great way to promote optimal health. 

Priority One’s Thyroid 65mg and Thyroid 130mg were created to provide glandular support for the benefit of a healthy thyroid. They were formulated based on the pioneered work of Dr. John Bastyr of Bastyr University that glandular concentrations support similar organs to maintain an already healthy state. 

Both Thyroid 65mg and Thyroid 130mg supplements are whole gland bovine sourced from locations with strict quality standards and non-GMO pasture-fed cows, ensuring that our products meet the highest purity standards.

For the month of October, get Thyroid for 20% off. Additionally, we are offering a chance to win $100 gift certificate. Email us at marketing@priorityonevitamin.com with subject “Thyroid Support” for your entry in the drawing.

Biofilm Phase-2 Advanced & Super Bio-Vegetarian

Biofilm Phase-2 Advanced™ 

The gut microbiome is a complex and integral part of health in general. For the gut to function optimally, there needs to be a good balance of beneficial bacteria. When the gut microbiome is out of balance whether from improper diet, antibiotic use, or inflammation then pathogenic microbes are able to take hold in the gut and cause a host of problematic symptoms. 

As these unfavorable microbes thrive they build protective barriers, also called biofilms, around themselves. These biofilms evolve from weaker forms (Phase 1) to stronger forms (Phase 2) making it harder to infiltrate. There are natural dietary herbs and nutrients that are good anti-biofilm agents as well as antimicrobials to support a healthy gut microbiome balance. Biofilm Phase-2 Advanced supplement is designed specifically as an advanced biofilm disruptor.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – has antioxidant activity and also promotes the regeneration of other important antioxidants including glutathione, vitamin C, and vitamin E. It also helps to disrupt biofilms. 

Black Cumin – has been shown to have strong broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against multiple strains of bacteria, fungi, virus, and parasites. It has also been shown to play a role in the inhibition of bacterial biofilm formation. 

Bismuth Subnitrate – a good binder and biofilm disruptor that also has potent broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. 

Super Bio-Vegetarian

Having a healthy immune response is imperative to staying well and bouncing back quickly after sickness. Giving the body an extra boost of immune supportive nutrients is a nice way to be proactive and prepared for the typical “cold-and-flu” season as we head into Fall.

One of my favorite combinations of immune supportive supplements is Super Bio-Vegetarian. A potent nutritional supplement that combines a selection of vitamins, minerals, and herbal constituents, as well as Shiitake and Maitake mushrooms that enhance the body’s own immune mechanisms to maintain a healthy immune response. 

Barberry – contains a constituent called Berberine which is an antimicrobial and can help decrease inflammation and modulate the immune system. 

Bitter Orange – contains bioflavonoids that have been shown to decrease inflammation as well as have antimicrobial and antioxidant properties. 

Cayenne Pepper – is considered a stimulant that increases circulation and has been shown to increase body temperature and help clear infections. 

Echinacea angustifolia – also known as coneflower, is often used for support when there are infections.

Echinacea purpurea – is best used as a prevention against upper respiratory tract infections. 

Garlic – is a plant with effective antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. It is often used for infections of the respiratory tract such as recurrent colds and influenza.  

Ginger –  is a medicinal plant that has many benefits including antioxidant and antimicrobial activity.  

Goldenseal – is useful for infections and inflammation. It is particularly restorative to the mucus membranes and can help clear out excessive mucus or phlegm. 

Grapefruit – part of the Citrus genus, has been used all over the world for its health benefits including antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. 

Magnesium – an important mineral nutrient involved in a wide array of functions. It has been shown to improve sleep and support calmness during times of stress. 

Maitake – both an edible and medicinal mushroom that has been shown to modulate the immune system and act as an antioxidant, antiviral, and antibacterial.  

Myrrh – is a gum resin that is primarily used for respiratory infections and to help clear out mucus. It also has anti-inflammatory activity. 

Oregon Grape – has antimicrobial properties that can help with clearing bacterial, viral, and fungal infections. 

Shiitake – an edible and medicinal mushroom used to support health conditions such as depressed immune system, infections, bronchial inflammation, frequent colds, and the flu.  

Vitamin A (100% as beta carotene) – beta carotene is converted in the body to vitamin A which is important for immune function and as an antioxidant. 

Vitamin B6 – performs a wide variety of functions in the body including immune function. One way it does this is by promoting the production of lymphocytes and interleukin-2. 

Vitamin C – plays a role in immune function. It has antiviral and antibacterial effects and also functions as an antioxidant. 

Zinc – a cofactor in many biochemical pathways, it functions as an antioxidant, is anti-inflammatory, and has antiviral properties. It is a great additional support when there is immune deficiency.
