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.

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.

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.

20% off of our newest product – Senior Immune!

We’re excited to announce our newest formula – Senior Immune!

Now more than ever, our immune response is vitally important to our health, within all age groups. This includes our seniors, who lead vibrant, healthy and more independent lives – which are key to longevity.  Senior Immune was developed to compliment their active lifestyles. 

A healthier life is dependent on our body’s innate ability to fight off infections and protect us from pathogens.   

Studies have shown that a well-balanced immune system can both initiate a robust healthy inflammation response in fighting pathogens and also know when to turn down the heat to modulate that response. 

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

Senior Immune features Zinc and D3, along with well known ingredients such as ascorbic acid, astragalus root, William’s elderberry, copper, beta glucan, and olive leaf.  All of these vitally important ingredients are now combined in a delicious and natural coconut-papaya flavored chewable tablet.

Olive tree leaves have been used in the Mediterranean area as food and traditional medicine in virtue of their healthy effects on the population.  Olive leaf extracts (OLEs) contain higher amounts of polyphenols than those detected in extra virgin olive oil and the fruit. 
Several lines of evidence support it’s use in maintaining proper cardio function.  OLEs are proven sources of  beneficial anti-oxidant activities. But most importantly the unique ability to maintain the equilibrium between T regulatory cells and Th17 cells respectively lends to it’s benefits on the human immune system and it’s native function.
