Looking at Health Awareness Calendars for 2019, it’s interesting to note that March stands out as Nutrition Month in the United States and Canada. It’s especially interesting for The AIM Companies™, given that this Member-driven organization is in the business of sharing “Nutrition that works!” It’s a simple yet significant catch-phrase that reflects the importance of the right kind of nutrition.
Nutritious, whole food works to maintain good health, and AIM’s high-quality, whole-food concentrates and supplements can help to take natural nutrient intake to optimal levels.
The Rise of Digestive Diseases Worldwide
On the poor nutritional side, a North American diet that includes too many processed and fast foods has undoubtably been a major factor that contributes to a variety of health problems.
A 2008 National Institutes of Health report on the burden of digestive diseases provides some convincing evidence as to what can happen when you regularly put the wrong kind of foods into your mouth: gastroesophageal reflux disease, inflammatory bowel disease, digestive cancers, etc. 1 To further illustrate the power of poor nutrition, you only have to look to changes in the Far East.
Several Asian countries whose populations had seemed to be immune are
now experiencing the onset and rise of many of these North American diseases, primarily due to the adoption of poor nutrition over the past 40 years or so. Before the transition toward industrialized societies, most people’s eating habits were healthier until modernization introduced the convenience of processed and fast foods.
A Medical Perspective
A steady diet of poor nutrition shows that a lifestyle move away from wholesome food results in poor health. Of course, there are other factors that can trigger digestive and other diseases, but, over time, dietary factors top the list.
Numerous enlightened minds in the medical profession, including Dr. Dean Ornish, founder and president the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, and Dr. Alona Pulde, co-author of The Whole Foods Diet, emphasize that lifestyle changes, with good nutrition leading the way, can make an incredibly positive difference in your well-being.
The AIM Perspective
The AIM Healthy Cell Concept™ focuses on five factors that promote healthy body cells, a key element in your overall state of health. Nutrition is the first factor, and the AIM intention of providing natural sources of supplemental nutrition is not only to get people’s health back on track but to keep it there.
Nurturing cells with easily absorbed, natural nutrients from AIM supplements can help to optimize healthy food intake, making a huge nutritional difference at the cellular level and supporting body health from the inside out.
Along with nutrition awareness, March is also the month that contains the first day of North American spring, when gardens begin to reappear after a long, cold winter. So let’s take a look at the Garden Trio: three examples of AIM “Nutrition that works!” to make cells healthy.
The Garden Trio
Barley grass grows with a fibrous root system that acts like a nutritional sponge, absorbing nutrients from the soil and sending them up into sprouting green shoots. Young barley grass is believed to be the most nutritious plant on the planet, but because of its high concentration of fiber, the human digestive system is not “grass-enabled.”
AIM delivers barley’s potent greens as an edible leaf juice powder to give people easy access to its abundance of natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll and unique plant nutrients. Nutritious, cleansing, detoxifying, alkalizing and inflammation-reducing … that’s BarleyLife.
Just Carrots and RediBeets
Carrots and beets are taproot vegetables that you can think of as units of underground food storage. Their fleshy roots absorb nutrients from the earth and keep them in what are literally protective, fibrous containers.
Like barley grass, AIM taps into the treasure of nutrients in carrots and red beets to create easily assimilated juice powders with minimal fiber.
Carrots are a very good source of beta- carotene, potassium, vitamins B6 and B7 and a variety of antioxidants and plant nutrients that support whole-body health, particularly in regard to the eyes and skin. Just Carrots delivers all the benefits of this orange taproot filled with nutrition.
Red beets store a rich source of polyphenols, betalains, enzymes, vitamins, minerals and vegetable nitrates, providing antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, circulatory and detoxification support that promotes good health and improved liver function. Each canister of RediBeets stores these nutrients and benefits, so tap into them to improve and maintain well-being.
The concentration of nutrients in the Garden Trio will provide a daily awareness of nutrition . . . and that works!
