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.

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.

Natural Anxiety Support – Guest Blog by Dr. BreAnna Guan

Natural Support for Anxiety

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.

LIFESTYLE

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!

SUPPLEMENTS

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.
