The Red and Green of It All!

Christmas comes but once a year with presents ‘round the tree.

In a symbolically colorful way, it’s always Christmas at AIM. Red and green whole-food nutrition is available year-round: RediBeets and BarleyLife. And when you think about the holiday spirit of gift giving this time of year, it’s a year-round tradition at AIM as well: giving the gift of health.

Some people may think, “Wow! That’s a stretch of the imagination!” But in reality, with a 36-year history of improving people’s lives with high-quality, supplemental nutrition, it’s not just imagination that the AIM family has been sharing the gift of health worldwide. And as another year ends on a Christmassy note, this traditionally joyful time of year can act as a reminder of the gift that keeps on giving: Nutrition that works!

BarleyLife

The AIM Companies™ began improving people’s quality of life back in 1982 with a unique green powder that helped people to transform compromised health into wellness from its concentrated nutrition.

By extracting the incredibly nutritious elements found in inedible blades of barley grass and turning them into an edible juice powder, AIM succeeded in bringing an unparalleled source of greens into the world of network marketing, changing the lives of those who believe in the benefits of drinking a glass of grass.

Since BarleyLife isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, so to speak, AIM also encapsulated the green powder for those who can’t seem to swallow the taste but wish to enjoy its benefits.

Everyone has different tastes, but all can benefit from BarleyLife’s natural nutrients, which can never be duplicated in multi-vitamin and mineral pills. That’s because barley grass is among the most nutritious plants on the planet. So to supplement your plant-based food intake, you will find one of the healthiest sources of green nutrition in BarleyLife.

RediBeets

On its own or as part of the Garden Trio, RediBeets serves up the nutritional richness of red beets in a juice powder, so you get the concentrated nutrients from these taproot vegetables without having the messy task of juicing them yourself. That alone is a gift!
RediBeets powder makes it convenient to increase your intake of beet nutrients, including liver-healthy betaine and vegetable nitrate that converts to nitric oxide. Simply mix it in water to make a tasty red beverage filled with beet nutrition that supports healthy cell, heart and liver function.

AIM’s red and green whole-food supplements are colorful, nutritional ways to support the gift of health in your life and in the lives of others from Christmas present through Christmases yet to come.

Certifications Matter

Members (whole-food concentrates and nutritional supplement distributors for The AIM Companies) worldwide recognize that our products are the finest. However, people outside of the AIM family are faced with many choices, so it isn’t easy for them to make the best selections when it comes to natural health products.

Independent distributors of AIM’s substantial line of high-quality products have several helpful deciding factors at their disposal to encourage people to make the finest choices: product certifications.

Knowing Product Certifications

AIM has five certifications that are featured on product labels and the website and in catalogs, datasheets and other AIM literature: Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, certified Vegan, Kosher and Sport Approved. It is important to be familiar with each certification when speaking to people who may be interested in purchasing AIM products.

As an example, people who are vegetarians or vegans are likely to share this aspect of their lives when talking about health-related issues and would be more inclined to purchase a particular supplement that fits their lifestyle choices.

Awareness of the certifications increases the product knowledge and credibility of AIM independent distributors and prevents unsuitable recommendations.

Non-GMO products do not contain genetically modified ingredients

Every AIM product is certified Non-GMO, so this fact is easy to remember for the entire AIM lineup. None of the ingredients that AIM uses contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are bioengineered animals or plants through the use of gene-splicing.

GMOs have created a worldwide concern for people who want only natural sources of nutrition. All AIM products respect that concern. Telling prospective customers that every AIM product is certified Non-GMO is as good an introduction as any.

Gluten-free products contain less than 20 parts per million (PPM) of gluten

The AIM Companies™ has tested for the presence of gluten in all of its products. Most AIM products have tested gluten-free except for BarleyLife capsules, BarleyLife Xtra, Herbal Fiberblend, CoCoa LeafGreens, LeafGreens and Canada Herbal Release. Knowing these six exceptions confirms the vast majority of AIM products are gluten-free.

Being able to identify gluten-free supplements is of utmost importance for the health of people who have gluten-related disorders. For such individuals, consuming gluten—distinctive proteins found in wheat and other grains—can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, including abdominal pain, bloating, poor absorption of food nutrients and diarrhea or constipation. Those with gluten issues can take comfort in knowing that AIM has a substantial lineup of gluten-free products that can help to improve their health.

Certified vegan products contain no animal products or by-products

For anyone following a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, the AIM products that are certified vegan can be easily identified by a logo or vegan indications printed on labels, signifying no presence of animal products or by-products and no testing on animals. This information is essential for vegans and vegetarians to decide which supplements are appropriate for them to take.

Kosher certification indicates the product, process and system comply with the highest kosher standards and regulations

Kosher food laws set a high bar in terms of cleanliness, purity and quality, so people not only of the Jewish faith look for the OK symbol on labels.

The Garden TrioBarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets—as well the BarleyLife powder in the 180-gram canisters and sample packs are certified kosher, and The AIM Companies will continue to expand kosher certifications for those who look for the OK symbol on product labels.

Sport-approved products contain no substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency

The AIM lineup contains three products that are sport approved: Peak Endurance, ProPeas and Red Rush. All three are available individually or as a combination in the Sports Pack. For competitive athletes, enhancing performance with natural products that contain no banned substances is an intelligent choice.

Helping people to make intelligent choices when it comes to their health and lifestyles is a goal for all AIM independent distributors. Use prod­uct certifications wisely to achieve this aim.

Fit is the New Thin: Mélanie’s Story

It is important to note that maintaining an ideal weight for your body composition goes well beyond being skinny or thin. It’s about being fit. It’s the new thin in wellness.

Over the years, many Members (The AIM Companies’ distributors) have managed their weight by using a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife, ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and GlucoChrom. A selection of recent testimonials comprise the “Fit Is the New Thin” series, beginning with a personal success story from Mélanie Villeneuve, an AIM Group Builder who lives in  Quebec with her husband and their two daughters.

Weight Loss Made Easy

As a working mom with two young girls, I need a lot of energy. But I had been experiencing health issues: stomach problems and mostly feeling tired all the time. I had poor nutritional habits and was overweight. I wanted to take charge of my health.

In September 2017, I started using AIM products, learning about their benefits for my family from AIM Director Sylvie Adam. I began by taking BarleyLife Xtra every morning for a month because I wanted to try one product first on myself and see if I felt any different.

After only four days, I noticed an increase in my energy levels, better digestion and reduced bloating. And at the end of that first month, I had lost 8 pounds.
Since then, I’ve been eating healthy, alkaline, raw food along with taking additional AIM products: the Garden Trio, which my girls love, ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and GlucoChrom. When I weighed myself four months into this lifestyle change, I had lost 30 pounds … and I’m keeping it off!

I couldn’t keep this a secret just for myself, so I’m promoting this healthy lifestyle and building an AIM business in the process. I began by telling family and friends about AIM nutrition. Some people didn’t recognize me after my weight loss. I look healthier, happier and fitter.

AIM makes it easy to introduce good nutrition to your routine, and you can start by changing one thing at a time. I know that I am now at my best to take care of my family. I’m full of energy, so I can do whatever I want. And I’m also ready to help people who want better health.

Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.

A Time for BarleyLife

In the world of business, the factors that determine longevity are many: quality products, marketing, people and perhaps a little (or a lot of) luck, especially in the competitive world of health supplements.

When a company grows and endures for decades, it’s worth noting the reasons why. One of those rare companies is AIM, collectively known as The AIM Companiesin a variety of countries around the world: Australia, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States of America, where the story officially began over 36 years ago.

BarleyLife Beginnings

In 1982, of all of the possibilities imaginable, a green powder began changing people’s lives by improving their health. And for those who recognized the opportunity in becoming AIM independent distributors of BarleyLife, their finances improved as well.

At that time, AIM was distributing a unique product: the juice powder of young barley plants . . . and there was nothing else like it. The fact that there are competitors in 2018 shows how fortunate as well as perceptive AIM was to be the first distributor of such a helpful supplement and to remain the largest going on four decades.

No Rest for Success

When distributing a natural health product sourced from a nutritiously perfect grass, it is essential to maintain excellence. With a determination to be the best in the field, AIM has been able to produce BarleyLife at the same high standard of quality ever since the first crops of barley grass were transformed into nutrient-dense juice powder.

At the same time, knowledge and technology have allowed AIM to make significant improvements over the years. Honing methods for growing, harvesting and processing barley grass into an easily assimilated food source has maximized the presence of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals and vitamins along with an extensive list of additional plant nutrients. The result is as-good-as-it-gets-to-date BarleyLife.

It is of utmost importance to note that AIM’s success has depended not only on the quality of its green powder but on the quality of individuals who have shared the benefits of BarleyLife from beginning to present. As the AIM product lineup grew over the years, Members successfully promoted these products as well, increasing the presence of The AIM Companies worldwide.

 

AIM independent distributors are diamonds in the comparative world of jewels in network marketing. And the future will be bright for those who decide to build AIM businesses of their own by sharing BarleyLife and other AIM products with the world around them.

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.

Getting a Nutritional Education

Late August or early September is the time associated with going back to school. Education time. Beyond what is learned from kindergarten through col­lege, parents have the ability to educate their children with an important, long-life lesson: the value of wholesome nutrition. It’s significant because there’s a media marketplace—TV, the internet, smart phones—that sells young people a poor-nutrition road to bad health: fast foods, soft drinks, processed snacks, to name just a few.

Unwholesome Advertising

It’s still an eye-opener to look back at the early days of advertising, when doctors promoted one cigarette brand over another. Have we really come that far since then? Possibly not, when you consider the marketing of so-called food and beverages that study after study show the likelihood for promoting the onset of diseases, such as obesity and diabetes1 as well as cancer2.

Such advertising is still legal and very profitable . . . just not ethical if a company truly cares about the long-term health of consumers and their children. In 2013, Fast Food Facts reported that children and teens remained key audiences by the fast food industry, which spent $4.6 billion to advertise mostly unhealthy products3. Even under all of the marketing pressure, parents can step in and make a difference.

Taste Training

Getting your kids to eat well is a worthwhile task. As a parent, you have the power of providing nutrition, so make choices that create good food habits. For example, introducing a variety of vegetables to young children and “marketing” them in a fun way can shape their taste for healthy foods4.

Introducing AIM nutrition to your children gives them a supplemental advantage for a long, healthy life­time. Kids who crave a glass of BarleyLife or Co­Coa LeafGreens instead of a bag of po­tato chips nurture their physical and mental well-being.

Chairman’s Club Director Sandy Combs has been such an educator since becoming an AIM Member in 1985. Sandy and her husband, Wayne, have six children, 21 grandkids and “a bunch of great-grandkids.” AIM nutrition has been a big part of their lives and the lives touched by Sandy’s help.

“Moms put BarleyLife into baby bottles to help children stay sat­isfied longer,” Sandy explained. “As my grandkids grew, AIM products entered into the school sports scene, fueling winning positions in baseball, softball, football and cheerleading. Championship com­petitions were joined with AIM’s champion products.”

Giving children a nutritional education helps them to graduate with a high degree of good health in life.

Four Cool Growing and Harvesting Facts

“Why BarleyLife is Unique”

#1 Grown Outside

One of the reasons that the barley plants AIM uses are so nutrient-dense is because the grass grows outside in the varying weather conditions found in nature: sun, rain, extreme dryness, moisture, etc., which stimulate the production of protective nutrients. Many barley grass products are made from grass grown indoors in greenhouses. This is a huge nutritional disadvantage because there is no direct exposure to the elements.
In particular, cooler temperatures stimulate the production of antioxidants to defend against this “cool” element that threatens the life of the plants. By growing our barley crops outdoors, we are increasing nutrient levels long before the grass is harvested.

#2 No ‘CIDES’ Are Used

Additionally, our barley grass is grown in nutrient-rich soil without the use of fungicides, herbicides or pesticides. And all plants are planted close together so that there are no other competing plants in the fields of barley. Once the plant has reached the desired height, which is quite short, the harvest begins.

Harvesting takes place in the evening because, once again, temperatures are cooler than during the daytime. In low temperatures, the plants produce what could be referred to as natural antifreeze, pushing sugars and nutrients into the leaves to protect the plant and the cells from freezing.

#3 An Evening Harvest

The coolness of the evening also helps to preserve other nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and live enzymes, until the barley grass is transported to the juicing facility, which fortunately happens to be very close to the crop fields. This means AIM harvests the barley grass at its nutritional peak and delivers it directly to the process that makes it a juice powder jam-packed with nutrients.

#4 Cooler Is Better

It is vital that the cool temperature remains throughout the processing stage because the cold slows the degradation of the grass after it has been cut. This applies especially to the live enzymes that would literally run out of control and spoil the juice powder if we didn’t keep them cool. Colder temperatures allow us to transfer the “fresh grass” taste and nutritional quality of young barley plants into every canister of BarleyLife. And that is a pretty cool accomplishment.
