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.

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. 

For the month of April we are featuring 20% OFF Lithium, Priority Lipo & Adrenoplex!

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.

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.

February Special – Hormone Clear is 20% off

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.

August Product Spotlight- Kinder Well

Designed by a naturopathic physician, Kinder Well is a combination of vitamins, minerals, and herbs formulated to help fortify and support healthy immune function.

It supplies specific ingredients to support the body’s natural production of white blood cells, including T-cells and neutrophils along with immune-supportive anthocyanins, flavonoids and polyphenols.

The immune system begins to develop from the moment we are born gradually maturing throughout infancy into adulthood. Immune antibodies (IgG) transfer from mother to baby during pregnancy and through breast milk, providing critical early protection against infectious diseases. As this fades away children become more vulnerable to certain infections as the innate and adaptive immunities mature. Children may still acquire bacterial, parasitic and viral infections that will be regulated and fought off with immune responses. Thus creating immunological memory and providing protection with increased immune responses.

Take advantage of this month’s special on Kinder Well by entering discount code “kinderwell20” at checkout for 20% off.  Offer is valid on up to 12 bottles..
