Generations of Nutrition

Shared by AIM Directors Heidi and Mike Toft

How many of your family members are AIM nutritional product users? In my family, I love the fact that we have four generations enjoying the AIM products.

My parents intro­duced us to The AIM Companies™ in 1998, when my father was diagnosed with lymphoma. They still promote their favorite products, loving it when people find renewed energy, lowered blood pres­sure and reduced pain.

My 96-year-old grand­mother faithfully takes BarleyLife capsules and ProPeas. When our children reached six months old, they loved having BarleyLife on a spoon with some juice to wash it down. Our son now has his AIM stash at college.

My niece, a senior in a college nursing program, sends me selfies of her espresso and CoCoa Leaf­Greens concoctions. My brother and sister also have their favorites and often share AIM with their friends and coworkers. We are truly an AIM Family!

In addition to the AIM products tasting good and creating positive changes in our health, I believe there are more good reasons why it’s possible for people from 96 all the way down to 6 months to benefit from them.

The purity of the AIM ingredients means a wide range of people can trust what they consume. AIM whole-food powders are safe for the very young. I feel good about products that don’t contain harmful pesticides and herbicides. The gluten-free products mean many of us can enjoy the nutrition we need without uncomfortable side effects.

Another reason AIM supports families is the wealth of available information. When we have ques­tions, we can call our friendly, knowledgeable company reps at any time to get personalized answers. Product datasheets, podcasts, email up­dates, YouTube videos, Chrysalis Networx and the Living Well magazine ensure all Members of the AIM Family have access to product knowledge.

Lastly, I’d like to thank the leadership of AIM for being wise and judicious in their company practices and policies. The average network marketing company survives for only a few years. AIM, how­ever, has been enriching lives since 1982.

The legacy created in our extensive AIM family is not only something to be proud of but also something to pass on to as many people as we can. AIM is a solid, safe, family-friendly company that we can rely on to be there for future generations.

AIM for Your Own Business

CarolynThere is an amazing income level that is possible with AIM because when you are excited about what the products can do for your health, you can’t help but share it. I’ve done this with countless people all around the world. Not only has it put a marvelous income in my life above and beyond anything that I could ever have dreamed about, there are many millionaires among the people in my downline. I don’t really like talking about the financial side because it is really about health, and if you have your health, nothing else matters. But there is an amazing amount of money that comes to you as a result of sharing good health with other people. I’m in the Eight Million Dollar Club, which has totally blown me away.
Carolyn Kling, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

DebraWhen I first started taking AIM products, someone asked me if I wanted to do a business. I said no because I was the manager of a small health club at the time. I didn’t want anything else on my plate. The next thing you know, I’m mixing my BarleyLife up at work, drinking it three times a day, and everybody wanted to know what I was taking. All of a sudden, I’m selling the products. AIM sent me a check one month, so I called them up and told them they made a mistake. That’s when they explained how the marketing (income) plan works. We had been praying for a way for me to stay home with the kids and not have to put them in daycare. Because of my AIM income, I was able to quit my job. Within the first year, I became a Director. It’s been a wonderful way to earn an income and help people to become healthy.
Debra Pugh, AIM Director

PetraAIM has been a great opportunity to have a side business on our farm. We sell AIM products in our store because they tie in with our organic beliefs. I can approach our customers when they come in looking for better food, introducing them to supplemental AIM nutrition. Over the next few years I plan to grow my AIM business even more because there will come a time when farm work will be too hard for my husband and me. My goal is to just do AIM and help people to live healthier lives.

March On with BarleyLife

March 20 is a turning point. In the Northern Hemi­sphere, the date officially marks winter turning into spring. The return of green marks the former winter landscape with new leafy growth and the promise of fresh greens from gardens and farms.

Three days before the first day of spring is green-themed St. Patrick’s Day. March 17 celebrates the culture of Ireland through parades, music, dancing, drinking, etc., and of course, wearing green, which can pretty much be a fashion choice any day of the year.

Wearing green on the inside through AIM nutrition ought to be a healthy choice that happens every day of the year. And spring and St. Patrick’s Day can serve as symbolic reminders to “March” on with lifestyle choices that include BarleyLife.

Going Inner Green

Members have been wearing green from the inside out ever since they began taking AIM products such as BarleyLife. Put some on your tongue and green is seen. It’s primarily chlorophyll that gives barley grass and all other plants their green pigment. The beauty of the chlorophyll in BarleyLife is that the 22.4 grams per serving is in balance with the multitude of natural nutrients that spring to green life as barley grass grows.

AIM harvests young barley plants long before the grass grows to golden grain. These fresh young greens are quickly turned into an easily assimilated juice powder with pretty much all of the fiber removed. That’s because people lack the enzymes required to break down grass fiber. AIM makes the incredible balance of natural nutrients in barley grass available for human consumption.

Consuming the concentrated green nutrition in BarleyLife:

  • Elevates plant-based nutrient intake
  • Cleanses and detoxifies
  • Boosts energy levels
  • Delivers antioxidant protection
  • Helps to reduces inflammation
  • Supports the the body’s acid-alkaline balance

By the way, you don’t need a seasonal change or “The Luck the of Irish” to enjoy the benefits of BarleyLife. You just need AIM.

“If you are ever on a sinking ship, grab your BarleyLife. It will sustain you for some time before you are rescued. It is a whole food and essential for health. You can live on BarleyLife for a while, so be sure and grab it … right after your life jacket.”
Michelle Long, Chairman’s Club Director

It’s All About Nutrition

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

BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets comprise a nourishing trio of whole-food concentrates that provide an unparalleled combination of plant-based nutrients.

BarleyLife

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!

Brain Food

Dementia is major concern for an aging population. There are steps people can take to keep their minds sharp throughout their lifetimes, and, not surprisingly, proper nutrition should be at the top of the list.

In January 2018, a study was published in Neurology that revealed eating leafy greens has a positive impact on cognitive ability. For nearly five years, 960 participants from the age of 58 to 99 years old had their food intake monitored as part of the Memory and Aging Project. None of the people who took part had dementia.

At the end of the study, those who consumed even one daily serving of leafy greens showed a slower decline in cognitive ability than the participants who didn’t. It was determined that particular plant nutrients, such as vitamin K1, folate, lutein, kaempferol and nitrate, found in greens and other foods contributed to this desirable state of mind.

AIM for the Brain and Beyond                                            

The AIM Companies has been promoting the nutritional benefits of greens ever since 1982 with the introduction of BarleyLife, the juice powder of young barley plants. AIM’s founders had immense belief in it’s potential to benefit people’s health and instinctively knew that they were on to something big. The fact that AIM has enthusiastically promoted this green powder for 37 years is the result of having “Nutrition that works.”

Over those years, AIM introduced additional whole-food concentrates, including RediBeets and CoCoa LeafGreens. Along with BarleyLife, these powders are rich in the brain-boosting plant nutrients identified by this recent study.

Having a concentration of plant nutrients in easily assimilated powders is an ideal way to supplement and boost wholesome food intake, not only for brain health but for overall well-being.

In addition to brain-healthy powders, AIM’s targeted nutrition includes GinkgoSense, a natural health product that helps improve memory in an aging population.

“Nutrition that works” for the brain and beyond is something to think about and, most importantly, act upon.

Kosher Certifications

Any time is a perfect time to remind others of the top three reasons why we (The AIM Companies) procure an OK Kosher Certification each year.

  1. The OK kosher mark is an especially valuable selling point when potential new Members first learn about AIM products. BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets all have the OK symbol that lets people know these whole-food concentrates are certified kosher.KOSHERCERTPROD
  2. Kosher foods conform to Jewish dietary regulations. As stated by the world’s leading orthodox kosher certification agency, the OK symbol is “one of the world’s best-known trademarks; it immediately and universally increases company marketability, accountability, and kosher acceptability.” In other words, it indicates the highest standard of kosher.
  3. Even those who are not of the Jewish faith look for the OK, choosing kosher food because of its association with healthfulness and cleanliness. And it’s not just about the purity of these AIM products; it’s about the purity of the place and process for producing them, which is indicative of all AIM products.

So let your present and future customers know the incredible value and quality of AIM whole-food concentrates that are certified kosher.

Athletes and Plant-Based Diets

Research indicates that athletes who overtrain and push their endurance to extremes have a higher risk for heart problems, notably plaque buildup in the arteries and cell death in the heart. In other words, overdoing it athletically can increase heart attacks.

This may tie in to the damage caused by oxidative stress, which occurs simply through the breathing process. Endurance athletes really push their use of oxygen, so oxidative stress may have a greater negative effect on their bodies.

Pushing It with Poor Nutrition

Back in 1977, The Complete Book of Running was published, influencing the widespread popularity of running as a healthy exercise. The book’s author, James Fixx, promoted the idea of pushing yourself through pain to reach the eventual high of running.

Seven years after the publication of his book, James Fixx died of a heart attack while running. An autopsy showed that he had atherosclerosis—arterial plaque buildup. The truth is that Fixx had a genetic predisposition for cardiovascular issues. His father died from a heart attack at the age of 43. But James believed that by pushing himself physically, he could avoid the same fate.

Moderation and Wholesome Food

By comparison, Jack LaLane was a fitness guru who penned a number of books and had his own TV show for over 20 years. LaLane’s father died of a heart attack at the age of 50, so he had the same health threat as Fixx. But LaLane lived to the ripe old age of 96.

The key differences between these two advocates of fitness were the intensity of their exercise routines and nutrition. Fixx believed in overdoing exercise and had a poor diet. LaLane promoted exercise in moderation, ate lots of fruits and vegetables, took supplements and promoted juicing big time. Exercise and good nutrition turn out to be a winning combination.

Scientific Support

A review published in the online journal Nutrients (January 2019), shows the correlation between endurance athletes and their dietary intake. It is known that consuming plant-based food is important not only for heart health but for the overall well-being of the human body. But for athletes that push their physical limitations, a plant-based diet is critical for their cardiovascular health.

Studies show that the nutrients from plants can have a positive effect on blood pressure levels, blood sugar levels and blood-fat concentrations as well as contribute to reversing plaque buildup in the arteries. Plant-based diets also promote a healthy body weight, improved tissue oxygenation and reduced inflammation and, especially for athletes, reduced oxidative stress.

The wealth of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties are major factors in the nutritional value of a plant-based diet for protecting the heart and the body from cellular damage.

AIM Nutrition

Supporting a plant-based diet, The AIM Companies provides an incredible selection of concentrated plant nutrition in whole-food concentrates, such as the Garden Trio: BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets.

AIM nutrition has been supporting the endeavors of athletes for years, including Lew Hollander, who in 2014 became the oldest athlete to compete in an Ironman triathlon. In his late eighties, Lew continues to push the boundaries of physical limitations with AIM nutrition on his side. As Lew says, “I love the AIM products. They have contributed to my ability to live a very active life in old age.”

Whether you are an athlete or not, AIM nutrition can help to make a healthy difference in how you feel and move through your lifetime.
