Whole-Food Powder Nutrition

The AIM Companies‘ Members are in the know when it comes to the differences between AIM products and those that try to compete. Take green powders as an example. All you have to do is look at competing product labels to see a whole lot of ingredients in small amounts only, including not so natural ones. In other words, most are highly processed versions of natural greens with a myriad of ingredients tossed into the mix that do not work well together, such as enzymes and probiotics.

The Fewer the Ingredients the Better

In contrast to a long list of ingredients designed to impress rather than nourish properly, BarleyLife sports a very short ingredient label list: the juice powder of young barley plants, a little bit of kelp and brown rice oligodextrin, which buffers the barley grass enzymes to stabilize them with all of the other nutrient molecules.

There’s a reason why AIM limits the number of ingredients in its whole-food powders. Members don’t need a lengthy list with everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. Green powder such as BarleyLife can stand on its own in delivering superior supplemental nutrition. At the same time, barley grass provides an incomparably long list of nutrients from a single natural source, which is why AIM provides BarleyLife.

With BarleyLife Xtra, you still get the same amount of BarleyLife but with additional fruit and vegetable powders for Xtra sweetness and vitamin C. And when the juice powder of young barley plants is mixed with the superfood leaf powders in LeafGreens and the cocoa powders in CoCoa LeafGreens, you still have a natural source of plant-based nutrition with a short list of natural ingredients that deliver an astonishing abundance of nutriments.

Whole Food Matters

There are some people who think that it’s a good idea to take supplements only to fill their nutritional needs. It’s an experiment that no one need try. At no point in the 36-year history of AIM has the company suggested that Members live on supplements alone and it never will.

As a matter of fact, the very first component of the AIM Healthy Cell Concept™ stresses the importance of eating whole foods and the benefits of proper nutrition. AIM whole-food powders supplement your food intake, adding an additional concentration of nutrients to a diet of wholesome food.

What AIM does encourage is the nourishing of cells with its nutrient-dense, power powders that are easily absorbed by the body, providing a nutritional advantage above and beyond healthy food intake.

Anti-Aging AIM Supplements

In the overall anti-aging AIM product lineup, the following four supplements can help turn back the hands of time.

Proancynol 2000

Every time you take a breath, you inhale life-giving oxygen. But breathing also has a death-giving aspect in the form of oxidation. Oxygen loves to steal electrons from stable molecules in your body, turning them into unbalanced free radicals that damage cells, proteins, lipids and DNA. This destruction accumulates and increases over time causing age-related illnesses that include diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.1 Your main defense against free radical damage is antioxidants.

Proancynol 2000 contains seven antioxidant-providing ingredients: green tea leaf extract, rosemary leaf extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, lycopene, alpha-lipoic acid and selenium, delivering an incredible diversity of protective antioxidants. For example, green tea extract is literally loaded with polyphenols2 such as catechins, the benefits of which include preventing cellular damage, protecting neurons and increasing the antioxidant activity of blood. You give your body a wide range of antioxidants from just this single ingredient. So with seven antioxidant-packed ingredients, Proancynol 2000 helps protect you from the damaging and ultimately aging effects of free radicals.

Frame Essentials

Joint pain is an inner sign of aging. Frame Essentials helps to revital­ize aging joints with a combination of interacting ingredients: glucosamine sul­phate, glucosamine hydro­chloride, boswellia extract and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You can think of them as reparative building material for joints.

The glucosamine sulphate in Frame Essentials may also help prevent one of the most visible effects of the passing of time: skin aging. A 2017 study concluded that “glucosamine sulphate has a positive effect on epidermal and dermal markers associated with age.”3 Support your inner and outer frame against the wear and tear of time with Frame Essentials.

GinkgoSense

As the years go by, time dominated by free radicals can have a damaging effect on sight and thought processes. “Almost every single one of the risk factors we have for macular degeneration can be linked to free radicals,” stated Dr. Lylas Mogk, ophthalmologist and author of Macular Degeneration: The Complete Guide to Saving and Maximizing Your Sight. Age-related memory loss can result from the brain’s susceptibility to free radical damage due to its high rate of oxygen use, high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids and relatively low antioxidant capacity.4

GinkgoSense supports eye and brain health with a combination of natural, anti-aging ingredients—ginkgo biloba extract, bilberry fruit, omega-3, lutein and zeaxanthin—that improve blood flow to the brain and eyes and deliver powerful antioxidants that fight free radical damage.

BarleyLife

In 2018, a review article published in the online journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity analyzed the nutritional makeup and health benefits of barley grass powder as “the best functional food that provides nutrition and eliminates toxins from cells in human beings.”6

With a natural source of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins from the juice powder of young barley plants, BarleyLife nourishes the cells with nutrients that repair, build and protect the body. It’s a must for anti-aging nutrition.

There’s even more to explore among AIM’s whole-food concentrates and natural supplements that promote healthy aging. The 2018 AIM Prod­uct Catalog contains them all, and you can find it and more at www.theaimcompanies.com.

Natural Nutrition from AIM

Shared by Rebecca Liu, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

Since joining The AIM Companies (AIM) in 1988, we have benefited a lot! Not only financially, but more importantly, we have learned so many concepts about maintaining good health through the use of natural nutrition from AIM. And I have a number of experiences that I would like to share.

In April 2017, I broke out in hives, so on some parts of my body, large areas of rashes and bumps appeared on my skin. Some looked like big mosquito bites that were red, itchy and swollen; the worst were near my waist. These eruptions popped up usually in the middle of every night. It was really annoying!

I went to a pharmacy to ask what I should do, and the pharmacist gave me an antihistamine, which is a drug used to treat allergic reactions. I only tried it once and didn’t want to use it anymore because I didn’t believe allopathic medicine would cure this skin problem.

Later, it occurred to me that I could apply Mag-nificence lotion to the affected area. After about 10 minutes, the redness, burning and swelling disappeared and the itching stopped. I continued using AIM’s topical magnesium for a few months and got rid of this skin problem. No more suffering during the night. Another great benefit is that magnesium helps you sleep, so I get a good night’s sleep. It’s so great . . . killing two birds with one stone.

For many years, I had a poorly functioning digestive system. Although many others suffer from constipation, my problem was loose, watery bowel movements. I had to go to the bathroom five or six times a day, even once or twice during the middle of the night. Again, it was very annoying. Not long ago, I started taking FloraFood on a regular basis. Wow! A few days later I was having regular bowel movements once or twice a day.

I also treasure Composure. I take two capsules before bedtime. It helps improve the quality of my sleep. I feel much better, more refreshed and full of energy the morning after having a deep sleep throughout the night.

From all of these experiences I’ve learned “The body is the best doctor, and food is the best medicine.” Hurray! Long Live AIM!

Red Rush for the Long Run or Walk

How important is blood flow to our health? Why do we need to know about its importance or even how circulation works?

Do We Need a Circulation Education?

The word “circulation” is often brought up when there’s a health issue. Poor circulation leads to sensations of tingling, numbness, pain or muscle cramps often in the extremities: arms and hands, legs and feet. But poor circulation isn’t a condition. It’s often an indicator of an underlying health issue, possibly diabetes, heart problems or obesity. It may also relate to the physical state of the arteries that blood flows through.

Whatever the underlying cause, it is vital that this red rush continues to flow. It’s essential for maintaining good health. The circulatory system is like an internal river of life with a multitude of tributaries that allow nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood to reach the cells of the body. Interestingly enough, Red Rush beet juice concentrate can help to maintain this red rush coursing through the arteries.

The Arterial Connection

Of all of the possible underlying causes of poor circulation, starting with the “internal river and its tributaries” is a good place to begin because the arteries encompass the flow of blood.

If your arteries narrow, the pressure from blood flow increases, just as water in a wide, rushing river would increase in force where it narrows or is obstructed by boulders or a dam. Pressure builds at these points.

Your blood pressure increases if plaque from cholesterol or fatty deposits builds up on the arterial walls, making them narrower or harder. Lined with a layer of cells called the endothelium, arteries are normally smooth and elastic, which allows for normal circulation.

The “Red Rush” Rush

So what happens to arterial walls when you drink Red Rush? They relax. Why?

Beet nitrate—500 mg per shot of Red Rush—is converted into nitrite by the bacteria in your saliva. The nitrite is further converted into nitric oxide when it reaches your stomach.

Nitric oxide is an amazing molecule that has an equally amazing effect on arteries. It relaxes them so that they widen, allowing improved blood flow and lower blood pressure. This means that oxygen-rich blood has enhanced circulation throughout the body, allowing you to maximize your oxygen uptake. And when you use oxygen to the max during physical activity, it improves your stamina.

Suppose you normally go for a walk or a run and at a certain point, you find yourself becoming out of breath. By drinking Red Rush two hours before your walk or run (to allow time for conversion from nitrate to nitric oxide), when you reach that normally out-of-breath point, you’ll find that you can keep going because you’re getting a nitric oxide boost of stamina.

And if you’re a runner but not exactly the fittest on the block, beet juice helps to reduce your oxygen consumption.

Whether you’re a fit-as-a-fiddle athlete or a former couch potato on the move, Red Rush beet juice concentrate offers a natural way to boost nitric oxide levels that improve your physical endurance.

Oh My … Candida!

Back in the early 1970s, when Lisa was told she had Candida, she asked her doctor, “What does Tony Orlando have to do with my privates?”

“I don’t understand,” the doctor replied.

Lisa rolled her eyes and sang the chorus of the hit song: “Oh my Candida . . .  we could make it together.”

With a quizzical look indicating he was not aware of Tony Orlando or Dawn, her physician answered “Is this some kind of a joke?”

Lisa gave him a puzzled look of her own and shook her head in disbelief as he handed her a prescription.

Back then, drugs were frequently prescribed (and still are) to treat the symptoms of candidiasis: itching, swelling and irritation caused by an overgrowth of Candida albicans, one of the most common fungal pathogens of humans. Even after taking antifungal medicine, women like Lisa continue to have recurring infections.

In all seriousness, Candida yeast infections are no joke to people who are affected by them . . . or named after them. In fact, the popularity of the song “Candida” actually caused a spike in baby name usage after it was released. Like many tunes of the time, the song eventually faded away as did the popularity of the baby name.

Unfortunately, Candida infections live on in unpopularity to this day and will very likely continue to do so in the future. Fortunately, a natural health product called CranVerry+ can help put an end to Candida.

The Growth of Candida

In the human microbiome comprised of bacteria, fungi, such as Candida yeast, and other microorganisms, there needs to be balance to prevent harmful overgrowth of the potentially harmful kind. Candida cells multiply when there are fewer good bacteria to keep them under control. And this out-of-control yeast needs to be killed off. CranVerry+ contains three ingredients that are very effective in Candida destruction.

Candida-Killing CranVerry+

The key ingredient in CranVerry+ is cranberry extract, which is natural remedy for urinary tract infections caused by bad bacteria. The proanthocyanidins in cranberries help to stop bacteria from adhering to the lining of the urinary tract, so the bacteria end up slip slidin’ away and out of the body.

And the plus in CranVerry+ is three additional ingredients that have unique Candida-killing properties:

  1. Resveratrol

This natural antioxidant from Japanese knotweed is an apoptosis inducer: brings about the death of Candida cells.

  1. Mangosteen

The presence of natural antioxidants called xanthone gives this tropical fruit the ability to kill Candida within twenty minutes of exposure.

  1. Beta-glucanase

This enzyme breaks down beta-glucan, helping to destroy the biofilm that protects Candida cells and allows them to multiply.

With a plus 3 on your side in the form of CranVerry+, saying you have Candida doesn’t stand much chance of becoming a broken record.

Red Rush Powers Sue On!

In April 2018, AIM-Sponsored Athlete Sue Phillips-Leclerc faced another beast . . . the Spartan Beast in New Jersey that is. This means Sue endured over 12 miles and more than 30 obstacles that include climbing ropes and crawling under barbed wire until crossing the finish line.

This is something Sue does for fun: testing her strength, endurance and resolve. In the end, she placed 3rd in her age group in the Spartan Beast. Red Rush is an essential supplement for her intensive training and challenging competitions.

The Beastly Beginning

“I guess I was always big into working out, mostly just going to the gym and lifting weights,” Sue explained. “I was a spin instructor for probably 15 years. And I love the mountains and trail running.”

After Sue entered her first Spartan Beast in Killington, Vermont, she was hooked. Both her husband, John Leclerc, and her daughter, Red Rush Athlete Taylor Witkiewicz, were great motivators because they competed as well.

Mountain Life

Sue and her family live in Plattsburgh, New York, in the Adirondacks, so their virtual backyard contains 46 high-peak mountains. “We spend a lot of time on the trails in the summertime,” Sue said. “Sometimes we’ll go hiking, and I’m religious about taking Red Rush. But occasionally my husband will say, ‘Oh man, I forgot to drink my Red Rush!’ It’s so funny the difference that it makes. It gets the blood flowing and increases stamina.”

Even their 2018 travels took them to high heights and physical challenges: Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies and the 6-Pack of Peaks Challenge™ in Southern California. Red Rush came along for the bumpy ride.

Training Schedule

Sue’s day job as a speech therapist in a public school means that she has an interesting work-week exercise routine. “I get up at 3 a.m. and train for 2 hours, a combination of running and weight training,” Sue stated. Her husband set up a workout room in their garage that she half-jokingly refers to as a torture chamber. “I work out six days a week.”

Her job gives her the summers off to focus on training for upcoming events, such as the August 10 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships and the September 15 Killington “ULTRA”, which is at least 30 miles and double the obstacles of the Beast.

To power Sue on, Red Rush will be her supplement of choice because “Red Rush makes a world of difference for training and competitions.”

Saying Yes! to Opportunity

Sometimes an opportunity comes along in life that “AIMs” you in a healthy direction. Chairman’s Club Directors Hilton and Edna Smith’s initial introduction to such a prospect was a near miss.

The Smiths were first introduced to AIM’s green juice powder by Dr. John Shewfelt, Chairman’s Club Director and chiropractor. They responded with a polite “No, thank you. We have all our vitamins!”

At that point in time, Hilton and Edna were part of a large, family-owned beef feedlot operation. Testing soil and animal feed showed the need for supplementation to provide a balanced ratio of nutrients, so it made sense to supplement their diets too.

“I was a stay-at-home mom with two sons and helped with the farm bookkeep­ing,” Edna recount­ed. “We were always very dependent on weather and market prices. In fact, our future looked very bleak because each year our agricultural business went further into debt.”

The idea of a home-based business really appealed to her, so they enrolled with a network marketing company to use their vitamins and share them with others to make a little cash. “We achieved some measure of success, similar to AIM Director,” Edna explained “but found it very stressful to maintain the high monthly qualifications to keep our status. We saw too many distributors losing their status to ever dream of being successful with that company.”

AIM came back into the picture after Edna witnessed the positive results from her sister’s use of AIM’s barley juice powder while going through radiation treatments. This got Edna’s attention, and she determined to find out more about this powerful green drink and The AIM Companies™ that marketed it. After reading the AIM Member Income Plan, Edna recognized its exciting potential.

“Chairman’s Club and beyond was possible because titles are permanent as long as the membership is kept current,” Edna admitted, “I started to dream about what we could do with the extra income.” She was now sold on AIM but still had to convince Hilton. That happened when her AIM income started to exceed his.

Three years after joining AIM, Hilton resigned from the farming business, which went into receivership a year and a half later. Their AIM income allows them to still reside on their 100-acre farm.

“We shudder every time we think about almost missing the opportunity to make beautiful new friendships, share better health and wealth and experience a financial freedom we never dreamed possible,” Edna stated. “We are so thankful that we had a second chance to say ‘Yes!’ to AIM.”
