Hair Fitness Priority Male is a powerful, triple-action formula that contains 46 synergistic ingredients designed to keep a man's body fit, his prostate healthy, and his hair thick and shiny. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) elevation is the main culprit responsible for a male's loss of hair, body tone and prostate function even when a man is young.
Total testosterone decreases with age, though not as steeply as free testosterone. Corresponding increases occur in several other hormones, especially prolactin, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG), esterone and estradiol. Testosterone-induced factors include sex drive, increased muscle mass, penis and scrotum enlargement, vocal cord enlargement and sperm production. DHT-induced effects are increased facial and body hair, male pattern baldness and prostate enlargement (sometimes referred to as BPH or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia). Priority Male helps tame DHT, the hormone that creates the "bound" part of testosterone, thus freeing up available levels of "unbound" testosterone naturally. A healthy, energetic-feeling, attractive body can affect your whole outlook on life as well as others' outlook on you. Why not take the best to be the best!
Priority Male is a complete multi-nutrient formula containing vitamins A through E, and Essential Fatty Acids in the form of flax meal and pumpkin seed. Superior forms of Zinc and Chromium are included as U.S.-patented OptiZinc and ChromeMate. These two minerals are depleted after ejaculation and other processes and, when not replaced, DHT elevates. This in turn stimulates prolactin production, having the net effect of softening a man's body tone. In the worst case, it may eventually cause a man to develop the appearance of breasts. Priority Male prevents this cascade of events and encourages a more "male man" to emerge complete with more hair on his head, a leaner, more muscular body and better urinary and sexual performance. Chromium increases lean body weight percentage due to muscle gain as well as fat loss. Priority Male contains the DHT inhibitors Saw Palmetto, Pygeum Africanum and Melatonin. Both Ginger and Beta-Sitosterol provide anti-inflammatory properties that optimize urinary and sexual function. Lycopene provides valuable antioxidant support along with OptiZinc, Beta Carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin B-1 (Thiamine), Vitamin B-5 (Pantothenic Acid), B-6 (Pyridoxine HCl), Vitamin E and Selenium. Since a fit, energetic man needs endurance and mobility, specialized nutrients are also included for cardiovascular, antioxidant and joint support.
L-Glycine is required to control motor function. Exaggerated, jerky, even spastic-like movements may evidence a glycine deficiency. Priority Male provides L-Glycine to improve muscle contraction and overall muscle tone. L-Glutamic Acid raises blood sugar and helps stifle cravings for sweets and alcohol. Various neurotransmitters responsible for alertness, clarity, moods and energy are also metabolized from L-Glutamic Acid. The combination of L-Cysteine, L-Glycine and L-Glutamic Acid forms one of the most powerful of all antioxidants, L-Glutathione. Glutathione is responsible for controlling muscle protein degradation rates. Glutathione is found in almost every cell but cannot enter directly. It must be made within the cell itself from L-Cysteine, Glutamic Acid and L-Glycine. L-Cysteine gives the Glutathione its antioxidant and detoxifying properties. L-Cysteine is rarely found in adequate amounts in the food supply no matter how well or what one eats. This can result in Glutathione deficiency, even if you are healthy. All three of these aminos are present in Priority Male.
The sulfur amino acid L-Cysteine makes up nearly 18% of hair and provides its strength and integral structure. L-Cysteine is a sulfur-derived "beauty mineral" that nourishes the glandular functions of hair. Glossy, shiny hair are also benefits from this sulfur-bound amino acid. Cysteine must be obtained by supplementation and most importantly, in a large enough amount to make a difference to the hair. Priority Male provides an even higher amount of sulfur in the form of MSM. MSM contains sulfur along with sulfur-bound Methionine as OptiZinc. All other necessary nutrients are included to prevent gray hair such as PABA, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Copper, Tyrosine, OptiZinc and Fo-Ti (Ho Shou Wu). High amounts of these synergistic nutrients stimulate the metabolism to extend the anagen or growth phase of hair. Thickness and length are increased naturally since the hair lives longer. When the growth phase is extended, more hair remains on your head longer, with less shedding and thinning of the hair. The galea is a membrane that sits under a man's scalp in that familiar cap-like appearance of male pattern baldness. The galea thickens as DHT and 5-alpha reductase elevate and interferes with the circulation of nutrients to the hair follicle. This thickening is a function of both DHT and aging and can be interrupted with the natural DHT inhibitors Saw Palmetto and Pygeum Africanum.
Priority Male provides the benefits of DHT reduction while supplying hair with all the nutrients it is made of. It rebuilds and supports the needs of every hair type.
Hair Fitness Priority Male will help grow your hair healthier and the Hair Fitness Shampoo and Hair Fitness Conditioner will help keep what you grow! The Hair Fitness Shampoo provides a SULFATE-FREE, TEA, MEA AND DEA-FREE formula that infuses positively charged human hair keratin to reconstruct damaged hair. The Hair Fitness Conditioner shares the same reconstructive nature of the Hair Fitness Shampoo while it silkens and protects the hair. Cuticle repair qualities tighten the hair shaft to reflect a richer color.
Avena Sativa, Horny Goat Weed, Bee Pollen, Muira Puama, and Panax Ginseng are provided to free up all available levels of bound testosterone and to provide high energy, normalize chemical interactions and boost the circulation needed to areas where blood flow is most in demand.
Loss of muscle tone results from DHT elevation combined with less available levels of testosterone and finally, declining levels as men age (sarcopenia). Priority Male unleashes natural bound testosterone levels while at the same time inhibiting the formation of DHT. Sarcopenia is defined as the loss of muscle mass, strength and function as related to age. Sarcopenia results from physical inactivity, motor-unit remodeling, decreased protein synthesis and changed hormonal levels. Muscle mass deteriorates as a result of a decrease in the rate of muscle protein synthesis. Priority Male helps reverse this cascade by increasing protein synthesis. Changes in male hormone levels due to aging may be linked to this process. Between the ages of 20 and 80, men lose about 20-30% of their skeletal mass. This is a consequence of multifactorial processes and can frequently be associated with osteoporosis. Men over the age of 50 actually have a greater risk of developing osteoporosis than they do prostate cancer. Risk factors for osteoporosis in men include: aging, alcoholism, smoking, gastrointestinal disorders, kidneys stones, lack of physical activity, low exposure to sunlight and treatment with glucocorticoids (cortisone or prednisone). Body weight, nutrition and existing diseases also play a role in the risk of fracture in men.
In general bone physiology is similar in males and females. Males have larger bones; however, the trabecular bone density and the compressive stress is the same in males and females, and decreases with age in both. The major difference is in the levels of gonadal hormones. Testosterone is probably anabolic at the bone level. Testosterone also increases muscle mass, which indirectly results in higher bone density. In the peripheral tissue testosterone is converted to estrogen, which prevents excessive bone resorption. Estrogen is necessary to bone in males as well as females, as demonstrated by the rare cases of deficiency of the enzyme that converts testosterone to estrogen. These males have osteoporosis and are excessively tall due to failure to fuse growth plates. In men the serum levels of estradiol are more closely related to the bone density than are the serum levels of testosterone.
The prostatic accumulation of both DHT and estrogen is in part correlated with aging and also with an increase of the estrogen/androgen ratio. Aging also has a significant impact on DHT-removing enzymes. Only resistance training and anaerobic exercise that targets the fast twitch (FT) muscle fibers can reduce the physical component of aging. The ingredients in Priority Male address the hormonal and protein changes as manifested by the declining muscle protein synthesis that occurs with DHT and 5-alpha reductase elevations. While physical exercise can only be undertaken by a man's commitment to his own health, Priority Male supplies the various nutritional factors necessary to achieve a healthy, lean, energetic body and help slow down a male's biological clock.
L-Ornithine and L-Arginine promote natural growth hormone release from the pituitary gland and nourish a healthy, energetic metabolism. Arginine stimulates the pituitary into producing more of one's own natural growth hormone. This ensures speedy wound healing, produces decreases in body fat, resulting in higher total strength and lean body mass and reduced evidence of tissue breakdown. Arginine is natural and effective has none of the harmful side effects of anabolic steroids. L-Carnitine is a di-peptide amino acid formed from the combination of the aminos L-Lysine and L-Methionine. L-Carnitine moves fat into energy producing units within cells, helping your body to convert fat into energy and to maintain a healthy body weight. This allows you to stay active longer, improve endurance and stamina and enhance post-exercise recovery.
L-Alanine stimulates net muscle protein synthesis and provides energy to muscle tissues. It is a nonessential amino acid used by the body to build proteins and maintain normal blood sugar levels. When taken in equal proportion with L-Glycine and L-Glutamic Acid, research published in the Journal of Maine Medical Association indicates between 70% and 92% reduction in various symptoms of Benign Prostate Hyperplasia.
Overall high-level health using the right amino acids, co-factors in the proper amounts and an appropriate resistence-training program is the key to freedom in the battle against hair, hormonal and body tone aging. Priority Male provides a comprehensive menu of male-building nutrients designed to fit the needs of every man from 18-80 who has a desire to feel young and vital!
