It’s All about Quality

The evidence is out there: the more plant-based food a person eats, the lower the risk of developing a variety of chronic diseases, which, in turn, leads to a longer life.

But let’s be clear about one thing. Quality counts, so if your diet includes French fries and potato chips, both of which are plant-based, these so-called foods are not going to count as quality choices that reduce your risk of diseases. Refined grains that are usually found in crackers, cookies and cakes are also unhealthy plant-based food.

It’s really not confusing as to what constitutes quality plant-based food. Choose plant foods that haven’t been messed with, altered or packaged. Instead of processed apple slices sealed in plastic with a pretty label decorated with apple illustrations, eat a whole apple. Eat fresh kale, not processed kale chips in a plastic bag with an attractive green, leafy motif. Consuming plant-based food packaged by nature provides quality.

And you don’t necessarily have to eat vegetarian only. From the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Dr. Ambika Satija stated, “For heart health protection, your diet needs to focus on the quality of plant foods, and it’s possible to benefit by reducing your consumption of animal foods without completely eliminating them from your diet.” Even the medical profession is getting and giving a much-needed education.

 The Difference Quality Makes

Study after study shows that consuming more high-quality plant-based food and less meat results in better health.

Mortality (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1999-2010)

Those with a high-quality plant-based diet were 27 percent less likely to die of any cause and 37 percent less likely to die of cancer.

 Coronary Heart Disease (Rotterdam Study):

Eating more plant protein and less animal-derived protein lowers the risk for coronary heart disease.

Consuming more animal protein and less plant protein increases the risk of heart disease.

Arterial Plaque (ELSA- Brazil Cohort Study)

Participants who regularly ate more plant-based protein were nearly 60 percent less likely to develop plaque in their arteries than those who ate more animal-based protein.

Type 2 Diabetes (The Singapore Chinese Health Study)

High intakes of red meat and poultry were associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes.

 AIM Quality

Supplementing high-quality plant-based food with high-quality AIM products providing concentrated plant nutrients packaged by nature can help to increase health benefits.

BarleyLife’s green nutrition from the juice powder of young barley plants delivers vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, chlorophyll and a virtual wealth of plant nutrients.

ProPeas offers an alternative to meat so that you have a healthy choice of protein from peas.

AIMega provides every cell in your body with omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids from organic seed oils.

Just Carrots, RediBeets, LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens provide more quality choices of supplementation. And Red Rush contains 500 mg of vegetable nitrate per bottle of beet juice. All deliver high-quality plant-based nutrients from whole foods. Quality counts.

Home Meeting Success

A proven way for your business to grow is to share what you know about the AIM products and business opportunity with others. By demonstrating your enthusiasm, people you meet will begin to share your excitement about starting their own business.

Meetings are one method many successful AIM Member Distributors have used to help build their network. Yet many people are hesitant to organize a meeting of their own. Shyness and a fear of addressing a group of people are just a couple of the reasons some Members put off hosting home meetings of their own.

Really, it’s easy. Here’s how:

Preparation

  1. Make a list of friends within driving distance of your home. Especially when you are holding your first couple of meetings, inviting people you are already acquainted with will help you relax and feel at ease with your guests. As you build on your successes, you’ll start to experience one of the greatest pleasures of being an AIM Member business builder: meeting and making new friends.
  2. Send invitations 7 to 10 days before the meeting. Whether your invitation is sent by email, text, by mail or using an online event tool such as Evite, it’s important to give your guests plenty of notice so they can plan their own schedules and make time to attend.
  3. Call everyone a day or two before the meeting and offer them transportation. This serves two purposes: it reminds everyone you’ve invited that the meeting is coming up, and it gives you a chance to help someone who may have run into difficulties making it to your house.
  4. Plan your meeting in advance by designing an agenda.

Agenda

  1. Welcome your guests and have everybody introduce themselves. You can make this as formal or informal as you want, but it is important to future members of your network to know who their fellow “AIM Family” partners will be.
  2. Show a video. AIM hosts several videos and playlists on our YouTube channel, aimusers. Consider showing the “Proven Products!” playlist, which makes explaining the features and benefits of the products easy for you.
  3. Tell your guests why you enjoy the products. It isn’t necessary to make a long, formal presentation, but offering some examples of how the AIM products have changed your life makes the information more immediate, and personal, for your guests.
  4. Hand out AIM literature. Depending on the focus of your meeting, the Living Well catalog, product datasheets, Member Income Plan guide or other literature are great handouts to share with your guests. This is also information they can take with them to read later.
  5. Invite your guests to share their experiences using the products. This is another way for you to help your guests learn more about the AIM products and business opportunity, and it also helps your guests interact and get to know each other better.
  6. Sample the AIM products. Your guests will want to try the products. With a blender and a few of your favorite smoothie recipes, you’re on your way. Mixing up a smoothie with AIM powders is a tasty way to introduce them to AIM’s nutrition that works!
  7. Offer additional information on the products or the business. As with any opportunity, some people are going to be more interested than others. For those who are interested, spend more time with them individually, explaining more about what you’ve learned about the products or the AIM business opportunity.
  8. Start and end your meeting on time. There are few things worse than being trapped by a salesperson who wants to tell you about something you aren’t interested in. To keep up the level of interest, your home meeting shouldn’t be any more than an hour and a half long. If some of your guests are really excited to get started, you can talk with them some more after you officially end the meeting, but let the other attendees go so they can think about it on their own.

Follow-up

  1. Stay in contact with your customers. As your new friends try the AIM products, they are bound to have questions. Don’t make them call you. Go that extra step and call them to answer any questions they might have.
  2. Ask your friends for referrals. As your new Members or customers become excited about the AIM products or opportunity, they are bound to have friends of their own they want to share the products with. Offer to help by hosting a home meeting for them. Working together, you can double your efforts toward success.
  3. Show satisfied users how to get the products wholesale. Many of your guests are going to be as impressed with the AIM products as you are. Teach them how they can order the products wholesale for themselves, and explain how they can further improve the quality of their lives through the AIM business opportunity.
  4. Schedule another meeting within 30 days. Now isn’t the time to slow down in your efforts. Since you’ve discovered that holding your own meetings can be rewarding and fun, make a new list of friends to invite over. Many AIM Members have proven that if you do you’ll be able to reach the level of success you are striving for.

The AIM Companies has been dedicated to improving the quality of people’s lives with life-changing products like BarleyLife and Mag-nificence CWR and by rewarding passionate Members with a free-enterprise compensation plan.

A Time for BarleyLife

In the world of business, the factors that determine longevity are many: quality products, marketing, people and perhaps a little (or a lot of) luck, especially in the competitive world of health supplements.

When a company grows and endures for decades, it’s worth noting the reasons why. One of those rare companies is AIM, collectively known as The AIM Companiesin a variety of countries around the world: Australia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States of America, where the story officially began over 36 years ago.

BarleyLife Beginnings

In 1982, of all of the possibilities imaginable, a green powder began changing people’s lives by improving their health. And for those who recognized the opportunity in becoming AIM independent distributors of BarleyLife, their finances improved as well.

At that time, AIM was distributing a unique product: the juice powder of young barley plants . . . and there was nothing else like it. The fact that there are competitors in 2018 shows how fortunate as well as perceptive AIM was to be the first distributor of such a helpful supplement and to remain the largest going on four decades.

No Rest for Success

When distributing a natural health product sourced from a nutritiously perfect grass, it is essential to maintain excellence. With a determination to be the best in the field, AIM has been able to produce BarleyLife at the same high standard of quality ever since the first crops of barley grass were transformed into nutrient-dense juice powder.

At the same time, knowledge and technology have allowed AIM to make significant improvements over the years. Honing methods for growing, harvesting and processing barley grass into an easily assimilated food source has maximized the presence of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals and vitamins along with an extensive list of additional plant nutrients. The result is as-good-as-it-gets-to-date BarleyLife.

It is of utmost importance to note that AIM’s success has depended not only on the quality of its green powder but on the quality of individuals who have shared the benefits of BarleyLife from beginning to present. As the AIM product lineup grew over the years, Members successfully promoted these products as well, increasing the presence of The AIM Companies worldwide.

 

AIM independent distributors are diamonds in the comparative world of jewels in network marketing. And the future will be bright for those who decide to build AIM businesses of their own by sharing BarleyLife and other AIM products with the world around them.

Red Rush: Not Just for Athletes

Sure. There are AIM-sponsored athletes who drink Red Rush to go the extra distance, complete those final reps or laps. But even the non-athletes who make up the majority of people in the world can benefit from increasing nitric oxide levels in their bodies.

The Positive

One of the most important molecules involved in pretty much all of the body’s organ systems is nitric oxide (NO), a colorless and odorless gas. NO relaxes the walls of blood vessels, making them larger and increasing blood flow throughout the body without causing additional pumping effort by the heart. It also may inhibit plaque growth and blood clotting in the arteries.

Even though so much has been reported about the benefits of beet juice nitrate for athletes, a study in the scientific journal Current Opinion in Clinical Nutrition and Metabolic Care (2017) found that, “Dietary nitrate may be most relevant to those with vascular/metabolic impairments, those engaging in short-term, intense exercise, deconditioned individuals, and those with a low dietary nitrate intake.” This means people who are not very fit or have health issues, such as breathing problems, low muscle mass or high blood pressure, may benefit the most by increasing their dietary nitrate intake and raising nitric oxide levels.

Where It All Begins

These days, the hot topic in health is the importance of the microbiome: the microorganisms in the body, especially in regard to good bacteria. The bacterial microbiome living in mouth saliva is responsible for converting dietary nitrate, primarily from vegetables, into nitrite. When it reaches stomach acid, nitrite is converted into nitric oxide. Nitrite conversion to NO can also take place in blood vessels or tissues. But it all starts with saliva.

The moral of this digestive trail is that nitrate from vegetables is incredibly good for your health along with all of the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients such plant-based food contains. And don’t spit, because you need it to convert nitrate into nitrite to become nitric oxide. Whew!

The Red Rush of Beet Nitrate

Beets happen to be a nitrate-packed vegetable, and one bottle of Red Rush contains the juice of five beets, providing 500 mg of vegetable nitrate. To increase your levels of nitric oxide, you can’t go wrong in knocking back a daily bottle of Red Rush. See how far it takes you.

AIM at Alpenblick Farm

Shared by Petra Stevenson, AIM Director

My husband, Robert, grew up on his family’s mountainside, organic farm in Switzerland, and he and I have operated a Swiss-themed farm in Canada since 1968. Alpenblick Farm is our organic livestock haven, where animals roam freely on nearly 200 acres of land.

I’ve been an AIM Member since 2005, and I avidly use a variety of products, including Mag-nificence CWR, lotion and spray. Over the years, AIM products have become a significant factor for all creatures at Alpenblick farm. For instance, we had to deal with a severe problem with a calf we named Elkie. He was raised mostly inside the barn after his mother passed away. One day, we felt it was time to let him enjoy the outdoors with the other cattle. When Elkie returned to the barn in the evening, he seemed weak and had to lie down immediately.

The following morning, Elkie still could not get up by himself. I gave him vitamins and minerals and lots of water and hay. Two days later, his condition had not changed, so we built a winch to lift him up and check his legs. Elkie’s hind legs were not so bad, just weak, but his front legs were buckled with swollen knee and ankle joints and would not straighten out.

I started massaging his legs and applied Mag-nificence spray, mainly to the joints. I also made a foot soak with the CWR. Then he needed to lie down again. Later that day, we lifted Elkie again, and his front legs looked a bit better, but he still could not put any weight on them. I applied lots of Mag-nificence spray again on all the joints of his front legs and massaged it in, and then bandaged the ankle joints.

The following morning, the swelling in his knees was almost totally gone. He could straighten them out but not his ankles, so I kept applying the spray twice daily. On the third day, Elkie could support his body weight but still needed help getting up and down. By the fourth day, he managed to get up and down by himself.

Thanks to Mag-nificence CWR and spray, Elkie can move again. Without these products, we would have lost him.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.
