Anxiety can be crippling and cause great discomfort. Thankfully there are countless natural products and lifestyle strategies that support calm and relaxation. This article will cover my favorite go-to items and lifestyle hacks for soothing anxiousness as well as my favorite products. This is not medical advice but rather a list of my favorites. Please talk with your provider before starting any new lifestyle or supplements.
Sleep – just consider a tired toddler, and it is so clear how much we need sleep to maintain balance. Having a regular sleep schedule may be just as important as the number of hours of sleep. Give this gift to yourself and support your immunity as well. Spend time outdoors – nature and green spaces increase parasympathetic activity (rest and digest). Nature has a way of slowing us down and getting us outside of ourselves and gives us a greater connection and sense of oneness with creation and humanity. Can you make this a regular habit during times of stress? Balance blood sugar – nothing causes anxiety like skipping meals and high sugar processed foods! If you’re consuming these foods, gradually back off them and include healthy fats and proteins with abundant greens to keep you feeling relaxed and calm. Green leaves– (lettuce, arugula, and etc.) are alkaline and reduce inflammation take down the burden of inflammation and acidity in our bodies. Less physical stress leads to less mental stress. Aim to have a large serving with at least two meals per day. Breath – take deep breaths or belly breathing to help focus, calm, and collect when thoughts, feelings or emotions lead, to overwhelm. Set aside time at the top of each hour or in between tasks to simply pause and breathe. Simple yet effective Hormone balance – if your a menstruating female and your hormones are out of balance due to estrogen dominance, PCOS, peri-menopause/menopause or luteal phase defects you’re less likely to have the calming protection of health progesterone levels. Talk with your doctor about supporting progesterone and get your levels checked. Sweat – amazing exercise will be a game-changer and support focus and increase feelings of strength and confidence. Startup gradually and do something you enjoy preferably outside! Get that tension out and move!
Theanine– an extract from green tea, the amino acid increase a sensation of calm and relaxation. Best taken away from meals. Effective and gentle calm support GABA – a neurochemical made by our own nervous system to support calm. This is a little strong and more direct-acting than theanine. I like the liposomal extracts. Kinder Calm – by Priority One – a chewable formula designed to support the body’s natural response to environmental stresses, great for sleep support.
Magnesium – threonate format crosses the blood-brain barrier and supports calm and sleep. Other forms are not strong. This could cause drowsiness. Citrate and Glycinate are other forms that I recommend for daily supplementation. Skullcap – This beautiful herb helps with focus and reducing the thoughts that just won’t stop. Also helpful for sleep. Chamomile and lavender tea- are wonderful for children and gentle enough to use regularly. You can even make these into popsicles or ice-cubes for the little ones. Ashwagandha – an herb that supports the endocrine system, especially adrenals and thyroid. Used for children and elderly this nourishing herb is a wonderful go-to keep you strong through periods of high stress.

Hormone Clear is a unique combination of amino acids, antioxidants, and nutrients that support the liver’s detoxification pathways of endocrine disrupting chemicals, EDCs, and the body’s own production of hormones. This is an exclusive product formulated by Dr. Marianne Marchese designed to be used for both men and women’s health conditions as well as detoxification and cleansing plans. Dr. Marianne Marchese is a leader in both environmental medicine and women’s health.
Dr. Marchese formulated Hormone Clear by choosing ingredients that assist the liver in metabolizing the body’s own production of hormones and EDCs. The ingredients in Hormone Clear include: Vitamin B-12 (as methylcobalamin), Folate (as (6S)-5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid), Calcium (as calcium d-glucarate), BioResponse DIM, Alpha Lipoic Acid, and N-Acetyl L-Cysteine.
Methylcobalamin and methyltetrahydrofolic acid both provide co-factor and methylation support for phase one and phase two liver metabolism of hormones and EDCs. Calcium d-glucarate (CDG) and Diindolylmethane (DIM) support multiple detoxification pathways and provide hormonal support. Both DIM and CDG support testosterone and estrogen balance and assist with metabolism of endocrine disrupting compounds. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) are powerful antioxidants that also support glutathione production in the body. These directly aid in the metabolism of chemicals that disrupt men’s and women’s hormonal health.
Both patients and practitioners are constantly seeking ways to restore balance and aid the body’s natural ability to clear hormones. Hormone Clear is designed for people interested in optimizing their hormonal system or for those who have known exposure to EDCs. It can be used as a stand-alone product or in conjunction with her other formulas from Priority One, Cofactors Support and Hepa Cleanse. This product is contraindicated in pregnancy and with lactation.
As a special offer to our loyal customers, we are offering 20% off of Hormone Clear in the month of February. Please use code “CLEAR20” to receive this offer on your website or phone order!
Valid for up to 12 bottles, this offer cannot be combined with other offers (such as a percentage off for a show special) and is not available for distributors. It can be combined with our premium specials.

Priority One is excited to present our newest chewable formula, Kiwi Kleanse!
Kiwi Kleanse is a delicious natural kiwifruit-flavored chewable tablet containing Actazin & marshmallow root.
This new exclusive formula is designed to provide easy-to-administer relief for occasional constipation including in children and pregnant women. The active ingredient Actazin is a non-GMO, cold-pressed kiwifruit powder sourced from New Zealand. It contains a unique combination of bioactive nutrients that effectively and gently support the digestive and laxation processes.
These active components are clinically shown to increase bowel movements in healthy individuals. Additionally, Actazin contains polyphenols, which are micronutrients known for their wide range of health benefits, including the potential to reduce temporary mucusal inflammation caused by poor digestion. The kiwi enzyme, actanidin, is a proteolytic enzyme that breaks down proteins, which may help to reduce bloating and abdominal discomfort.
Kiwi Kleanse includes prebiotic properties, which support the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. These bacteria, when allowed to multiply, produce essential short chain fatty acids that provide metabolic fuel for the colon.
Research on the levels of vitamin A and C in the kiwi fiber have been shown to have an anti-inflammatory effect, which may contribute to the gut’s motility & ability to keep things moving. Kiwi fiber is a source of both soluble and insoluble fiber with the ability to increase water retention, which provides for softer and bulkier stools.
The ingredient of marshmallow root is noted for it’s ability to produce natural mucilage to support and soothe the digestive tract.
As a special offer to our loyal customers, we are offering 20% off of Kiwi Kleanse in the month of November. Please use code “kiwi20” to receive this offer on your website or phone order!
Presenting our special for the month of June: 20% offPriority Zyme– our proteolytic enzyme formula supporting a healthy inflammatory response!
Proteolytic enzymes, also called protease, are enzymes that break down proteins. First into smaller fragments called peptides and eventually down to their components, amino acids. There are different types of proteolytic enzymes classified according to the sites that they catalyse the cleavage of proteins. The best known proteolytic enzymes are found in the digestive tract.  Proteolytic enzymes are essential regulators and modulators of inflammatory responses in the body. In inflammation responses they have several important actions, which include taking part in the production of macrophages and natural killer cells, and the ability to act on pathogenic immune complexes. In some cases they have been known to prevent the formation at inception, which is regulatory or stimulating to the immune system.
In regards to modulation of the immune system, proteolytic enzymes work in several ways: one is the ability to reduce swelling of mucous membranes by decreasing capillary permeability. Another is improved circulation as enzymes reduce blood viscosity, which in turn increases the oxygen and nutrients in the bloodstream. Additionally, proteolytic enzymes also work to break down plasma proteins which enhance their flow into the lymphatic system, promoting a speedy resolution to pain and swelling from injuries.

Our featured product Biofilm Phase-2 Advanced is 20% this month! This is an exclusive product formulated by Dr. Paul S. Anderson and is specifically designed for the disruption of advanced biofilms. This product was developed using the most recent scientific data on biofilm disruption. Dr. Anderson is on the leading forefront of biofilm research and education.
What are Biofilms?
Biofilms are little communities of microorganisms in your body that join forces and adhere to living or non-living surfaces. They form a protective coating called a polymer matrix, which is like a “force field” or barrier that prevents antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals or any other antimicrobials from being effective in removing them.
Biofilms are capable of adapting in many environments and thus can be found in all parts of the body, including the teeth, sinuses, tonsils, and intestines. Biofilms in the intestines can lead to chronic digestive and allergic responses. Our 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, and specifically the immune system.

April will feature our 4 exclusive SIBO products formulated by Dr. Mona Morstein. SIBOtic, SIBOZyme, SIBO-Rebuild & SIBO-MMC.
We are offering 20% off all 4 of these exclusive products during the month of April, limited to 12 of each product.
SIBO Phase 1 Support for healthy small intestinal bacterial balance.
SIBO-ticis a unique formulation by Dr. Mona Morstein that contains a comprehensive, therapeutically dosed collection of SIBO-balancing ingredients in one product. It is designed for patients who prefer a high potency botanical formula.
SIBOZyme is a comprehensive, therapeutically dosed formulation designed to support healthy digestion. Healthy intestinal lining can produce the disaccharide enzymes necessary for proper digestion of foods that often cause mal-digestive distress. Proper digestion is also dependent upon the body’s ability to produce healthy levels of gastric acid, pancreatic and or gallbladder bile. Support for these natural processes in the form of a comprehensive digestive enzyme is imperative during times of temporary digestive distress.
SIBO Phase 2 Support for healthy small intestinal bacterial balance
SIBO-Rebuild– This specialized formulation is designed to support nerve and intestinal lining health. It supplies elements to support the body’s natural ability to regenerate migrating motor complex (MMC) nerves and intestinal lining cells, which is essential for gut health. A healthy non-permeable gut lining influences the whole body and mind while contributing to an overall sense of good health.
SIBO-MMC supplies a combination of botanicals and nutrients designed to help maximize the healthy functioning of migrating motor complex (MMC) nerves, thus stimulating the natural forward movement of the gastrointestinal tract to eliminate the reintroduction of undesirable compounds.
Go to our website, enter discount code “sibosupport” at checkout and get 20% all of our exclusive SIBO products. Purchase discount is valid for up to 12 bottles.
