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.

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.

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.
