Guys and Supplementation

It can be a challenge to convince most guys that supplementing beyond muscle-building protein powder is a good thing. So let’s start there.

If you’re a guy reading this (or if you’re reading this and know a guy), ProPeas is a natural way to supplement protein intake. Building lean muscles, maintaining a healthy weight and boosting a fat-burning metabolism are just a few benefits of pea protein for men of all ages. It’s plant-based, so ProPeas is a healthy alternative to consuming meat.

Beyond supplemental protein, there’s so much more from AIM to support men’s health

Giving Guys a Healthy Helping Hand

Maintaining good health is often something that guys think about after there’s a problem. But proactive men know that eating (and sleeping) well, exercising and supplementing with AIM whole-food concentrates and natural health products contribute to their overall well-being and reduce the risk of many diseases.

AIM for Longevity

After Chairman’s Club Director Keith Thompson began tak­ing AIM products, his sons noticed a big difference in him. By using products such as energy-boosting Peak Endurance, Keith has gone rock climbing with his middle son, impressing people with his ability to make it through the really challenging parts. And he’s gone on 10-mile kayak trips and 22-mile bike rides with his boys. “I couldn’t have done any of this without AIM products,” Keith admitted. “My sons wish that I could have taken them when they were growing up.”

Chairman’s Club Director George McPherson has also been able to maintain an active lifestyle, and younger men and colleagues envy his strength and endurance. “I don’t know where I would be today without the AIM products,” George stated, relating the time many years ago when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Immediate surgery had been recommended. But he decided to opt for naturopathic IV treatments and AIM products, including the Garden Trio and Herbal Fiberblend along with ReAssure SP for prostate health. And to this day, George has never required the surgery.

Almost 30 years ago, Chairman’s Club Director Dr. John Shewfelt began taking BarleyLife, which is his favorite food. John and his wife, Marilyn, along with their kids and grandkids have seen positive health benefits over the years by taking AIM products such as BarleyLife.

For example, at the age of 64, John decided to have a thorough heart examination “to see how the old ticker was doing.” When he went in for the results, the cardiologist told him he had the heart of an ox and that all of his blood vessels were perfectly clear—no plaque buildup. “The cardiologist also said that he knew I used green food nutrition because none of his other patients had such healthy arteries. He had emigrated from Hong Kong, where he used to see healthy arteries all the time because people use green nutrition to stay healthy,” John stated. “When I finally told him about BarleyLife, he said ‘don’t stop using it’ and I never will.”

AIM’s Healthy Nutritional Edge

From a young age, AIM Director Dan Nichols had an unhealthy fear of disease. His father died at the age of 53 from a heart attack and his grandmother had cancer. In 2003, he came across healthy eating and juicing. “I suddenly realized you could fight disease with nutrition,” Dan stated, noting he has also been involved with regular exercise since his teen years.

After meeting AIM Star Sapphire Director Leré Robinson, Dan was introduced to AIM’s juice powders and got to know the heart of AIM. One of his children had allergies that were relieved by taking products recommended by Leré, including Leaf Greens and BarleyLife. For his entire family, BarleyLife would become a daily nutritional supplement. And Dan began a morning routine, taking BarleyLife Xtra, RediBeets and Peak Endurance as well as a daily shake made with ProPeas and fit’ n fiber. With healthy eating and AIM supplements, he and his family continue to “fight disease with nutrition.”

Bruce Crevier, AIM Preferred Member and AIM-sponsored athlete, turned a childhood fascination with basketball spinning into an entertaining show that would eventually take him and his family all across the USA and to over forty countries. Bruce and his wife Diane and their 12 children even performed their “Spin-tacular Basketball Show” on episodes of America’s Got Talent.

For good health, the Creviers had been juicing at home for many years but found it difficult to do when on the road. Finding The AIM Companies™ and whole-food concentrates like the Garden Trio allowed Bruce and his family to continue this healthy routine while traveling. And in 2017, the Creviers became the very first AIM-sponsored group whose demanding performances benefit from Nutrition that Works!

AIM has been in the business of helping people with high-quality supplements since 1982. Many of those individuals are guys who know that AIM nutrition helps to keep them in good health. But there will always be room for more AIM supplement guys.

Travel Plans? Stay Healthy!

In North America, summer is on the way. It’s a typical time of year to take a vacation. What’s more, leisure time that involves traveling to familiar, new or exotic places is usually something that most people daydream about and look forward to regardless of the season. It’s all about getting away from it all.

Some people set out on vacation with a drugstore supply of medications just in case they get sick along with any medical prescriptions. Others may have to scramble for medicine if the symptoms of common travel ailments stop them in their tracks. And some cast their fate to the wind and just go. AIM people pack prevention in the form of “Nutrition that Works” to protect their health before, during and after their travels.

Packing AIM Prevention

For any journey, getting there and back in good shape is desired by all who travel. But it doesn’t always work out that way right from day one. For example, if you’re taking public transportation, basically you’re encapsulated with strangers inside your choice of vehicle. Traveling by plane raises the risk of illnesses such as colds or the flu possibly by sharing recirculated air or touching in-flight magazines, contaminated trays and armrests, lavatory door handles, etc. And this can get your journey off to a sick start.

You have a choice to help prevent becoming sick by taking antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 or trying to find cold or flu medicine after getting sick. Members know that increasing levels of antioxidants with Proancynol considerably reduces the risk of illnesses, whether on the ground or up in the air somewhere.

Bring along the healthy gut bacteria in FloraFood to prevent ailments such as traveler’s diarrhea or other stomach bugs or you may have to scramble to find medications to counteract the bad bacteria in your gut after ingesting contaminated food or water. Members are aware that maintaining the population of good bacteria in the gut with FloraFood helps to prevent stomach problems especially while traveling.

And you simply can’t go wrong by packing BarleyLife in lightweight Sample Packs to supplement your nutritional intake with the jam-packed nutrients in barley grass.
If travel is in your plans, pack prevention by packing AIM nutrition.

In the summer of 2017, I packed AIM products for my trip to China, where I competed in the roller games for Team Canada. With all of the traveling, stress and different foods, many of the other participants got sick. Taking supplements such as BarleyLife, FloraFood and Proancynol 2000 kept me healthy.

Why BarleyLife Is Unique

Part 1

There are many kinds of barley grass products in the marketplace. None is as good as BarleyLife. It’s a strong statement, and here are some initial reasons that make it a true one.

Barley Whole-Leaf Powder: Bad

Many new Members may not recognize the difference between AIM’s barley leaf juice powder and the whole-leaf powder in other barley grass products.

Under a microscope, whole-leaf powder looks like ground leaves because that is exactly what it is. And when whole leaves of barley grass are dried and ground, you get a mostly indigestible powder with few absorbable nutrients because unlike livestock that grazes on grass, humans cannot digest the cellular walls of grass fiber to release its incredible source of natural nutrients.

AIM has always taken a different approach to accessing the wholesome food available in green barley grass. Obviously, the entire details of the process that AIM has developed over the last three and a half decades cannot be revealed here because our competitors would love to get their hands on this secret information.

Barley Leaf Juice Powder: Good

To begin with, a lot of care and attention goes into making BarleyLife. AIM uses only young barley plants that are short in stature while at the height of their nutrient content. The grass is processed in a way that breaks down the fibrous cellular walls that enclose the nutrients, releasing them so that the juice can be concentrated and dried into an easily digested, bioavailable powder.

This is accomplished by mac­erating the barley leaves into tiny pieces and putting them into a press that draws out all of the juice. The remaining debris, mostly fiber, is taken away and used as cattle feed or a soil additive. This vital detail once again points out that these indigestible components are included in barley whole-leaf powders made by our competitors.

What’s more, our juicing process is conducted at a low temperature to preserve the nutritional content of the barley leaves. When it reaches the spray drying stage, a low temperature is also used for the same reason. AIM gets the most nutrition out of every single leaf so that Members get the highest quality BarleyLife possible.

Four Brain Health Habits

Around the world, approximately 50 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In the USA, over 5 million people have age-related dementias. The figure in Canada is well over half a million.

Alzheimer’s is a disease that attacks the brain, affecting memory, thinking, behavior and personality, and ultimately causing death. Dementia is a general term referring to a severe decline in mental ability that gets in the way of daily life. A number of diseases can cause dementia, including Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and vascular issues. However, Alzheimer’s may account for 60 – 80 percent of dementia cases.

The month of June brings awareness to Alzheimer’s disease and its effect on the brain, slowly diminishing people’s cognitive abilities and quality of life over time. As the leading voluntary health organization in care, support and research, the Alzheimer’s Association promotes four categories of lifestyle habits that people can put into practice as they age:

1.  Diet and nutrition

2.  Cognitive activity

3.  Social engagement

4.  Physical health and exercise

These lifestyle habits have been determined to be effective for aging well because research indicates that the combination of good nutrition and mental, social and physical activities may have a greater benefit in maintaining or improving brain health than any single activity. 1

AIM Brain Nutrition

AIM nutrition gives your cells a supplemental concentration of nutrients to help improve and maintain the overall health of your body and brain. For example, the natural profusion of nutrients from plant-based food in the Garden Trio offers incredibly good nutrition that can be taken daily as a lifestyle habit. Giving your body such nutritional wealth can also have a very positive effect on your mood and mental sharpness.

To target brain health, GinkgoSense delivers Ginkgo biloba extract, which contains compounds that support brain cells by increasing energy production. The resulting increased blood flow also helps deliver these compounds and other brain-healthy nutrients. 2 At the same time, ginkgo’s antioxidant properties help protect brain cells from free radical damage, which may play a role in the onset and development of Alzheimer’s disease. 3

Lifestyle habits that support brain health are worth full-time awareness and discipline to help lead you into golden years of well-being. Make one of those habits AIM nutrition.

The Probiotic and Prebiotic Connection

Over the years, The AIM Companies has stressed the importance of good gut bacteria known as probiotics. The latest research is now confirming the significance of prebiotics—types of fiber that good bacteria eat—establishing that these two go hand in hand to improve and maintain good health. AIM offers healthy sources of both: FloraFood probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics.

You and Your Gut Microbiome

All of the microorganisms that make up your gut microbiome (or microbiota) can be thought of as a nurturing and protective army. Your microbiome helps to keep you alive by performing many important duties, such as digesting food, absorbing nutrients, forming short-chain fatty acids (primary nutrient of cells lining the colon), producing vitamins and defending you from disease-causing pathogens.

Many of the pathogens your gut battles against are types of bad bacteria. These bad guys are believed to be factors in the onset of inflammation, obesity and a variety of chronic diseases by overpopulating your microbiome until they are out of balance with your good bacteria.

Consuming probiotics in FloraFood help to keep your gut in a balanced state. And with the latest research showing that probiotics thrive by eating prebiotic fiber that you cannot digest, AIM has a duo of products that supports a balanced microbiome.

FloraFood Probiotics and fit’ n fiber prebiotics

As a source of probiotics, FloraFood contains three types of good bacteria: Lactobacillus gasseri, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium longum. Each capsule delivers 3 billion good bacteria that back up your nurturing and protective army.

To help feed this army, the fit ’n fiber formula includes three types of prebiotic fiber: acacia, konjac (glucomannan) and guar gum. Each serving delivers a significant amount of food for probiotics: 8 grams of prebiotics to feed FloraFood’s 3 billion good bacteria, helping them to grow and reproduce exponentially to ensure a balanced microbiome.
