Q&A: AIM Members Commonly Ask These Questions

qa

I have read that cruciferous vegetables can negatively affect those with hypothyroidism or those prone to hypothyroidism. Am I at risk when taking LeafGreens?

There has only been one case that links cruciferous vegetables to hypothyroidism in humans — an 88-year-old woman who ate 1-1.5 kilograms (2-3 pounds or 1,000- 1,500 grams) of bok choy daily. A human study found that 150 grams of cooked Brussels sprouts for four weeks had no negative effects on thyroid function. To put this all in perspective, a single serving of LeafGreens is 3.5 grams.

I heard that former smokers should not take beta-carotene supplements? Should I be worried about the beta-carotene in Just Carrots?

The beta-carotene found in Just Carrots is produced naturally from the carrots. The beta-carotene found in foods poses no cancer risk. Synthetic vitamins that contain beta carotene have been found in four large studies in the 1990s to increase the risk of lung cancer in smokers.

What is the difference between BarleyLife and other off-the-shelf barley grass powders?

BarleyLife is a juice powder concentrate.

I was told years ago by an upline that we should not take any other products with Herbal Fiberblend as it moves through your system quickly instead of being absorbed. Has that changed?

Psyllium may reduce nutrient absorption, and we’ve recommended taking watersoluble supplements separately as a precaution so that Members receive the greatest value from their products. However, if the only way you can take your Herbal Fiberblend is by mixing it with CalciAIM, Peak Endurance or another AIM product then we encourage you to do so. Although a small percentage may not be absorbed consuming the products should be your primary goal.

If you have a question about nutrition or any of our products, please feel free to send it to
