The popularity of vitamins, minerals, herbs, extracts and other supplements is something that changes over the time, depending on the latest research and trends. The following are some of the most popular ingredients that can be found in the AIM product lineup.
1. ) Multivitamins
Supplements that are multivitamins are synthesized in laboratories because you would have to eat a variety of food sources to get them all. Whole-food powders such as BarleyLife contains a variety of vitamins, including A, B2, B6, B9, C and K, all of which are produced naturally in Mother Nature’s laboratory: the Earth.
2. ) Calcium
Bones need this mineral for proper growth, structure and function, but calcium deficiency is all too common. Choosing a dietary supplement that is most effectively absorbed and utilized has led many people to CalciAIM, which provides a powder form of ionic calcium that is easier for the body to assimilate when compared to tablets or capsules.
3. ) Vitamin D
Known as the “sunshine” vitamin, D is a fat-soluble nutrient that the body needs for growing and maintaining bones, controlling infections and reducing inflammation, just to name a few health benefits. Vitamin D is also an ingredient in CalciAIM because its presence is required for the proper absorption and regulation of calcium.
4. ) Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The two fatty acids considered to be essential are omega-3 and -6, which cannot be produced by the body, so they must be a part of dietary intake. AIMega delivers both from organic seed oils. The omega-3 in AIMega comes from flax seeds, one of the richest sources of plant-based omega-3.
5. ) Folate
The natural form of vitamin B9 is folate. The synthetic supplement is folic acid, which is also used to fortify foods. Folate plays a major role in the formation of red blood cells and the growth and function of healthy cells. One serving of BarleyLife delivers 12 percent of the recommended daily amount of folate from a plant source: barley leaves.
6. ) Probiotics
The increasing popularity of probiotics is the result of continuing research on the microbiome and the important role that good bacteria have in supporting good health. FloraFood helps to maintain the diversity and population of these beneficial organisms with three strains of good bacteria and three billion live cells per capsule.
7. ) Curcumin
As one of the most colorful and flavorful spices, turmeric is the source of a beneficial phytonutrient called curcumin, which provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin extract is one of the ingredients that makes GinkgoSense an effective dietary supplement for memory and vision health.
8. ) Coenzyme Q10
Like many beneficial compounds that the body is able to make, coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) production gradually lessens during the aging process, which means a reduction in cellular energy. CellSparc 360 increases the intake of this cell-sparking antioxidant in ubiquinone form to increase energy production and support cardiovascular health.
9. ) Green Tea
For centuries, green tea has been enjoyed as a healthy beverage. The green tea extract in Proancynol 2000 is decaffeinated using a water-filtering process, retaining the plant’s high levels of polyphenols that contribute to the effectiveness of this dietary antioxidant supplement.
10. ) Magnesium
Widespread deficiencies of this essential mineral have led to the popularity of magnesium supplements. AIM’s approach to supplemental magnesium has been to provide a topical application through Mag-nificence CWR magnesium bath additive. Absorption through the skin is one of the most effective ways to increase levels of this mineral. One ounce of Mag-nificence CWR contains 2,400 mg of elemental magnesium.
