A Time for BarleyLife

In the world of business, companies come and go. Success rates rise and fall as the years go by. The percentage of failures in the long run is high. 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 relatively small companies grow and endure for decades, it’s worth noting. One of those 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 our 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 important 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. As additional supplements have become part of the AIM product lineup, Members have successfully promoted them 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.

The CellSparc 360 Boost

Your body produces many important nutrients that keep you in good health. However, the levels decline over the years as you age.

One of these vital components is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), found in all cells and membranes. That’s because CoQ10 is essential for the production of cellular energy. So it is no surprise that a telltale sign of aging is the decline of energy metabolism in a variety of body tissues, including skeletal muscle, the liver and the heart, as a result of lower CoQ10 levels.1 Supplementing with the CoQ10 in CellSparc 360 can help you maintain healthy concentrations of this essential nutrient.

Along with sparking energy production, CoQ10 is an antioxidant that protects cell membranes and lipoproteins from oxidation, a major cause of inflammation and the onset of age-related illnesses, including the No. 1 killer: heart disease. Again, supplementing with CellSparc 360 can ensure that you have a sufficient amount of this potent antioxidant.

The Latest Research

In February 2018, research published online in Frontiers in Physiology that examined “Coenzyme Q10

Supplementation in Aging”2 came to some interesting observations about CoQ10 deficiency:

  • Associated with a number of diseases and age-related chronic conditions
  • Negatively affects energy production in the cells
  • Significantly increases the level of oxidative damage

The research concluded that supplementation with CoQ10 improves cellular energy production and provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties for organs and tissues, protecting the body from the aging process and disease.

The CoQ10 Boost with CellSparc 360

To increase your CoQ10 levels, take CellSparc 360. One daily capsule provides 60 mg of plant-derived coenzyme Q10 along with heart-healthy tocotrienols and omega-3 essential fatty acids that assist with its absorption and utilization.
As time goes by, you will eventually need to boost the presence of CoQ10 in your cells. It’s a part of the body’s aging process. You can be proactive by making CellSparc 360 a supplemental must.

Whole-Food Powder Nutrition

The AIM Companies‘ Members are in the know when it comes to the differences between AIM products and those that try to compete. Take green powders as an example. All you have to do is look at competing product labels to see a whole lot of ingredients in small amounts only, including not so natural ones. In other words, most are highly processed versions of natural greens with a myriad of ingredients tossed into the mix that do not work well together, such as enzymes and probiotics.

The Fewer the Ingredients the Better

In contrast to a long list of ingredients designed to impress rather than nourish properly, BarleyLife sports a very short ingredient label list: the juice powder of young barley plants, a little bit of kelp and brown rice oligodextrin, which buffers the barley grass enzymes to stabilize them with all of the other nutrient molecules.

There’s a reason why AIM limits the number of ingredients in its whole-food powders. Members don’t need a lengthy list with everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. Green powder such as BarleyLife can stand on its own in delivering superior supplemental nutrition. At the same time, barley grass provides an incomparably long list of nutrients from a single natural source, which is why AIM provides BarleyLife.

With BarleyLife Xtra, you still get the same amount of BarleyLife but with additional fruit and vegetable powders for Xtra sweetness and vitamin C. And when the juice powder of young barley plants is mixed with the superfood leaf powders in LeafGreens and the cocoa powders in CoCoa LeafGreens, you still have a natural source of plant-based nutrition with a short list of natural ingredients that deliver an astonishing abundance of nutriments.

Whole Food Matters

There are some people who think that it’s a good idea to take supplements only to fill their nutritional needs. It’s an experiment that no one need try. At no point in the 36-year history of AIM has the company suggested that Members live on supplements alone and it never will.

As a matter of fact, the very first component of the AIM Healthy Cell Concept™ stresses the importance of eating whole foods and the benefits of proper nutrition. AIM whole-food powders supplement your food intake, adding an additional concentration of nutrients to a diet of wholesome food.

What AIM does encourage is the nourishing of cells with its nutrient-dense, power powders that are easily absorbed by the body, providing a nutritional advantage above and beyond healthy food intake.

Anti-Aging AIM Supplements

In the overall anti-aging AIM product lineup, the following four supplements can help turn back the hands of time.

Proancynol 2000

Every time you take a breath, you inhale life-giving oxygen. But breathing also has a death-giving aspect in the form of oxidation. Oxygen loves to steal electrons from stable molecules in your body, turning them into unbalanced free radicals that damage cells, proteins, lipids and DNA. This destruction accumulates and increases over time causing age-related illnesses that include diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.1 Your main defense against free radical damage is antioxidants.

Proancynol 2000 contains seven antioxidant-providing ingredients: green tea leaf extract, rosemary leaf extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, lycopene, alpha-lipoic acid and selenium, delivering an incredible diversity of protective antioxidants. For example, green tea extract is literally loaded with polyphenols2 such as catechins, the benefits of which include preventing cellular damage, protecting neurons and increasing the antioxidant activity of blood. You give your body a wide range of antioxidants from just this single ingredient. So with seven antioxidant-packed ingredients, Proancynol 2000 helps protect you from the damaging and ultimately aging effects of free radicals.

Frame Essentials

Joint pain is an inner sign of aging. Frame Essentials helps to revital­ize aging joints with a combination of interacting ingredients: glucosamine sul­phate, glucosamine hydro­chloride, boswellia extract and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You can think of them as reparative building material for joints.

The glucosamine sulphate in Frame Essentials may also help prevent one of the most visible effects of the passing of time: skin aging. A 2017 study concluded that “glucosamine sulphate has a positive effect on epidermal and dermal markers associated with age.”3 Support your inner and outer frame against the wear and tear of time with Frame Essentials.

GinkgoSense

As the years go by, time dominated by free radicals can have a damaging effect on sight and thought processes. “Almost every single one of the risk factors we have for macular degeneration can be linked to free radicals,” stated Dr. Lylas Mogk, ophthalmologist and author of Macular Degeneration: The Complete Guide to Saving and Maximizing Your Sight. Age-related memory loss can result from the brain’s susceptibility to free radical damage due to its high rate of oxygen use, high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids and relatively low antioxidant capacity.4

GinkgoSense supports eye and brain health with a combination of natural, anti-aging ingredients—ginkgo biloba extract, bilberry fruit, omega-3, lutein and zeaxanthin—that improve blood flow to the brain and eyes and deliver powerful antioxidants that fight free radical damage.

BarleyLife

In 2018, a review article published in the online journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity analyzed the nutritional makeup and health benefits of barley grass powder as “the best functional food that provides nutrition and eliminates toxins from cells in human beings.”6

With a natural source of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins from the juice powder of young barley plants, BarleyLife nourishes the cells with nutrients that repair, build and protect the body. It’s a must for anti-aging nutrition.

There’s even more to explore among AIM’s whole-food concentrates and natural supplements that promote healthy aging. The 2018 AIM Prod­uct Catalog contains them all, and you can find it and more at www.theaimcompanies.com.
