AIM Nutrition: Essential for Good Health

With such a wide variety of AIM Nutrition available to Members, sometimes a little direction is needed, especially for those new to AIM. To keep it simple, let’s look at nutrition that is considered to be essential on a daily basis: greens, fiber and essential fatty acids (EFAs). AIM has supplemental options to increase the intake of all three.

Greens

Even though the body benefits from the wealth of nutrients in dark, leafy greens, many people don’t like them or simply don’t eat enough. AIM provides four different concentrated greens to choose from, providing an abundance of nutrients in easily absorbed powders.

BarleyLife is a barley grass juice powder concentrate that nurtures whole-body health with a rich source of essentials, such as antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins. Each nutrient is made in balance by nature.

BarleyLife Xtra delivers all of the above along with the powders of eighteen fruit and vegetables that offer additional vitamin C and a sweet taste.

LeafGreens combines the juice powder of barley grass and the powders of five green superfoods, arugula, broccoli sprouts, kale, spinach and Swiss chard, delivering exceptional plant nutrients such as quercetin, kaempferol and sulforaphane.

CoCoa LeafGreens includes the antioxidant and flavonoid benefits of three kinds of cocoas, adding a chocolaty taste to LeafGreens.

Fiber

Having a well-functioning digestive system is essential for good health. Maintaining a high-fiber intake is vital, but statistics show most people get far less than they need. AIM offers two fiber supplements.

Herbal Fiberblend combines psyllium for soluble and insoluble fiber and a variety of cleansing herbs that detoxify and provide gentle relief of constipation.

fit ’n fiber peach contains six sources of fiber and five botanicals in a daily supplement that increases fiber intake, promotes regularity, aids in satiety and assists with weight management.

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)

Good health depends on the dietary intake of omega-3 and -6 EFAs, the good fats that the body cannot produce. Most people do not get sufficient amounts.

AIMega delivers encapsulated organic seed oils for a plant source of EFAs, which every cell in the body requires to grow and function optimally.

Greens, fiber and EFAs are essential on a daily basis. Make sure you get yours!

Combat Seasonal Allergies with Nutrition

The rate of seasonal allergies is on the rise. Luckily, there are several dietary strategies that can alleviate or ameliorate symptoms.

Omega-3s with AIMega

Inflammation occurs when the immune system reacts to injury, illness or irritant. An allergy is often nothing more than an inflammatory overreaction to a perceived threat: a particle of dust, pollen. Omega-3 fatty acids have been found to help soothe inflammation in people with either allergies or asthma.

Probiotics with FloraFood

Preliminary research sug­gests that probiotics might aid seasonal allergy suffers. Beneficial gut bacteria help to regulate the immune system’s response to allergens, re­lieving symptoms.

Green Tea Extract with Proancynol 2000

Your aunt may have been right when she told you to drink green tea for hay fever. Researchers in Japan found that green tea contains a compound (EGCG) that blocks certain allergic responses. Plus, green tea brims with antioxidants.

Quercetin with LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens

Quercetin is a pow­er­ful plant flavonoid. In test tube studies, quercetin stopped im­mune cells from releasing allergy-causing histamines. It also has antioxidant proper­ties that can reduce inflammation.

Vitamin C in BarleyLife Xtra and Peak Endurance

Most often used to prevent the common cold, Vitamin C also has antihistamine properties. Several studies have shown that vitamin C might reduce allergy symptoms as well.

The Inflammatory Core of Arthritis

People suffering with arthritis have a great need to cool the inflammation associated with pain and stiffness. Arthritis is just one of many diseases with the suffix -itis, which indicates an inflammatory condition.

Osteoarthritis—the degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone—is the most common type. Although this chronic disease has been classified as non-inflammatory by the medical community, research published in 2013 shows inflammation plays a role in this debilitating disease that, in effect, can turn an affected joint into a chronic wound1. One of the article’s headings says it all:

Chronic, low-grade inflammation sets the stage for chronic disease

The AIM solution is ‘Nutrition that works’ at the source of joint pain, providing support that can reduce inflammation and help the body to repair cells.

Joint Relief with Frame Essentials

The synergistic effects of glucosamine, boswellia and MSM in Frame Essentials work wonders in relieving joint pain and providing nutrients to help soothe inflammation, relieve osteoarthritic pain and support joint health.

Inflammation Reduction with BarleyLife

By alkalinizing an acidic system, AIM BarleyLife® keeps disease-inducing inflammation at bay. The best action for preventing inflammation throughout the body is to take these nutrient-rich greens daily.

Cellular Overhaul with AIMega

The omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in AIMega® provide the good fats required to build and maintain healthy cells on a daily basis. Two of the numerous benefits of omega-3 are reducing inflammation and helping to lower the risk of chronic diseases, such as arthritis, cancer and heart disease.

To get results, the body needs support on a daily basis. The positive impact of all three nutritional supplements working together can have a healing effect on a body ravaged by arthritis.

According to Dr. Michael Greger (NutritionFacts.org), “The best kept secret in medicine is that, given the right conditions, the body heals itself … the power of nutrition as medicine may be the best investment we can make.”

AIM has never kept any of this a secret.

Nutritional Strategies for Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a common tick-borne illness that affects around 300,000 individuals every year. It causes severe pain, swelling in the joints, arthritis, rashes and worse. If detected early, Lyme disease can be treated and abolished, but many will suffer for months on end with some developing post-treatment Lyme disease syndrome (also known as chronic Lyme disease or PTLDS).

Scientists believe that PTLDS may be caused by residual tissue damage and chronic inflammation. Dietary factors can ease or increase inflammation. Sugars, gluten and dairy will fan the fires of inflammation, but there are several dietary approaches that will diminish it.

Good fats, the kind found in fish, flaxseed and olive oil are well-known and stalwart inflammation fighters. Look for those fats in AIMega and CellSparc 360.

Fruits and vege­­tables pro­vide in­flam­­mation-fighting antioxidants, and there might be no better source of plant-based an­ti­oxidants than those found in BarleyLife or BarleyLife Xtra.

CoCoa LeafGreens and Leaf­Greens con­tain quercetin, a substance that may assist with Lyme-related bladder issues, allergic reac­tions and pain.
Finally, probiotics such as FloraFood have been recommended for leaky gut issues associated with PTLDS.

I was having pain in my hips, knees, shoulders, jaw as well as severe headaches. At times the headaches were unbearable. Within a year, it became more difficult to do household tasks. I was praying every day that God would help me.

A family friend heard of my condition and brought me BarleyLife. After three days of taking it, I was up cleaning the house. When my husband came home from work, I was doing dishes. He was surprised that I was up and feeling so much better. He said, ‘That stuff works, keep taking it.’ So I did.

Later, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and was put on a 90-day plan. I kept up with the AIM products and my health and energy began improving every day. I was no longer experiencing those horrible headaches and the pain in my joints was reduced.

Increase Your Risk of Life! With Fats!

Risk-of-Life

Being alive is pretty exciting. As a living, breathing human, you have a lot of great options available. You can read a book, hug your children, whistle in the shadow of a statue or admire a nearby toucan. It is literally up to you. And now, there may be a simple way to extend the miracle of life!

According to a study published in the  Journal of Clinical Lipidologyfolks with higher levels of of EPA and DHA omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in their blood tended to have a greater rate of survival when compared to those with the lowest levels.

The study analyzed 6,500 post-menopausal women ( ages 65-80). They had their polyunsaturated fat levels tested in 1996 and their health outcomes were tracked until 2014. Other factors were also measured: smoking and drinking habits, exercise levels, genetic history, etc. By the end of the study, nearly one-third of the women had passed. Scientists put all the information together and were able to say that their “findings support the view that higher EPA and DHA omega-3 levels are associated with better overall health.”

Researchers estimate that it takes only one gram of EPA or DHA to increase PUFA levels from the lowest to the highest. Polyunsaturated fatty acids can be acquired from fish or from seeds that come from plants like flax or sunflower. Making sure that there is an adequate amount in your diet might extend your life, all it takes is a few simple dietary changes and/or regular supplement usage.

Alex Frisk in the Net!

frisk

AIM nutrition powered AIM-sponsored Athlete Alex Frisk through academic and athletic demands at Red Deer College during the fall of 2016.

“The term was awesome! I found it easier to be awake all day in terms of energy,” Alex stated. “Even staying after class to study in the library after getting through a day of studying. Not taking naps at all. And the best grades I’ve gotten yet.”

Alex’s knee injury that she received while playing on a men’s roller hockey team in July 2016 hasn’t held her back on the ice. As one of three goalies on the Red Deer College Queens, Alex helped her team to reach first place in the league. Highlights of the fall include being in net for the first annual Pink in the Rink fundraiser in support of women’s cancer. “My parents were there to watch me play,” Alex said. And in the game that put her team in first place, Alex had a shutout, blocking twenty-three shots on net.

In April, Alex will participate in the trials for a spot on Team Canada’s roller hockey team. And in May, she is getting married, so 2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year for this talented young woman.

Heart Help

AIMega.png

As the hardest working organ in the body, the heart deserves all the help it can get. Yet so many people go through life doing things that give their hearts a hard time: poor diet, lack of exercise, stressful thoughts, just to name a few of the hard-hearted things they may do.

On top of bad habits, the aging process brings about a reduction in the body’s production of adequate levels of nutrients, so supplementation becomes a vital part of a healthy lifestyle especially when it comes to helping the heart beat.

CellSparc 360
Let’s face it; hearts require an awful lot of energy to do their lifelong job of keeping people alive. One vital, heart-boosting nutrient is the antioxidant and energy sparker, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). To keep beating, the heart depends on sufficient amounts of CoQ10, sparking energy production at the cellular level. A reduction in CoQ10 production is bound to negatively affect heart function in the long run.

Supplementing daily with CellSparc 360 lends a vital helping hand to the heart, providing CoQ10 along with DHA and EPA and vitamin E.

AIMega
Omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the body, so eating omega-rich foods and boosting intake with a supplement are essential. In fact, as components of every cell in the body, good health depends on a daily supply of these good fats.

Helping both the heart and blood vessels, omega-3 essential fatty acids reduce arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), lower blood pressure levels, decrease triglyceride levels, slow the buildup of plaque in the arteries and reduce blood vessel inflammation.

AIMega delivers the omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids that the body requires daily.

Bear Paw Garlic
In countries where garlic is consumed in large amounts, there are fewer incidences of cardiovascular disease. Over the years, research has indicated garlic provides a variety of benefits that include helping to maintain cardiovascular health and healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Providing these heart helping benefits, Bear Paw Garlic offers a unique form of garlic: the leaves of wild garlic that grows on the forested mountains of central Europe.
