How We Maintain the Natural Bounty of Enzymes


Enzymes are often an overlooked element of daily nutrition. This might stem from the fact that there are over 50,000 enzymes, and we’ve only discovered around six percent. And although we don’t know everything about them, what we do know is that they are essential for driving vital biological processes like detoxification and the transportation of nutrients. Enzymes are the reason that most cutting-edge nutritionists recommend adding more raw food to a diet.

Enzymes are made of amino acids, catalysts for numerous biological reactions, and they are very, very fragile. They can’t survive heat. Although they aren’t alive and, therefore, can’t actually die, they can become inactive or denatured. In this modern age of microwaves and toaster ovens, we tend to cook the majority of our meals, obliterating this unique element of our diets.

The AIM Companies wants to protect the rich bounty of natural enzymes in its BarleyLife and we do it through proprietary process that reduces oxidation, heat and other threats to these valuable enzymes. AIM CEO and co-owner Dennis Itami developed the innovative technology for plant juice in New Zealand.

To further ensure the survival of our enzymatic pals, we’ve also add brown rice oligodexterin to BarleyLife. This ingredient acts a protective buffer which keeps the enzymes stable and safe, extending the shelf life and preserving our high standard of quality.

Other green juice products may tout “pure juice,” and yes, their juices might contain high levels of enzymes, but without a dextrin base to preserve them, the enzymes quickly denature and by the time the product travels from manufacturer, to warehouse, to sales floor, to your dinner table, there’s a very distinct chance that the “pure juice” isn’t going to contain that same high level of active enzymes. According to research done in the early 80’s, without a dextrin base, enzymatic activity plummets sharply.

BarleyLife is a top-quality product made with optimum nutrition in mind. No expense has been spared, no detail has been overlooked in our continuing efforts to deliver the highest-quality, most nutritious green juice product on the market.
