AIM Changed My Life

Shared by Sandy Berry, Group Builder in Tarlton, South Africa

In 2017, I listened to an AIM presentation from Royal Emerald Director Madaleine Helm that addressed a number of health issues. My own included osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and anemia along with hot flashes that disappeared only five days after I started taking BarleyLife and using Renewed Balance.

Shortly afterward, I found out that my seven-year-old daughter, Hayley, had
attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Having her tested for food sensitivities revealed she had celiac disease as well. I put her on a variety of AIM products, including BarleyLife Xtra, CoCoa LeafGreens and FloraFood. As for changing her diet, I removed anything that contained gluten. For good measure, we are busy eliminating dairy as well.

Two months later, my twenty-six-year-old daughter, Tarryn, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I gave her BarleyLife, Herbal Fiberblend, Frame Essentials and Peak Endurance as well as Renewed Balance. These products have helped her to
feel better.

As for Hayley, seven months of being on the AIM products has made a huge improvement in her well-being. I can almost say she is a different child. She’s not so aggressive anymore. And she falls asleep within fifteen minutes instead of the three hours it used to take. I really notice that her concentration is much better. Overall, Hayley is just a far more pleasant little girl. Giving her AIM products is of utmost importance to me because I believe she’s getting the best support available.

To share what AIM products mean to me and my family, I decided to study AIM’s online courses to learn more about them and how the company works. You cannot promote AIM products if you have no idea what they can do for you or how the body works. I graduated from the AIM Academy in April, so now I have a better understanding of how the body needs AIM nutrition to function optimally.

I hope that more people will educate themselves and help give other people the best possible health solutions. I will always try to increase my own knowledge so that I can give the best of myself to everyone I meet. If I can help just one person, I’ll feel I have accomplished my goal in life. This is why I now sell AIM products to all who want to better their health.

Thank you to Madaleine Helm and The AIM Companies™ for changing my life. I am truly blessed.

Moving Mountains

Shared by Izelle Pretorius, AIM Member

I was twelve years old in 1990, when my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer. What is cancer I wondered? I was told it is the illness that kills. In 1991, my grandfather passed away. In 1999, my aunt was diagnosed with cancer. Ten years later, she was gone. So cancer is the illness that kills, I thought.

In 2015, I was diagnosed with stage III breast cancer in October: breast cancer awareness month. It seemed like a mountain was in front of me. I was thirty-seven years old and had a wonderful husband, Johan, and two boys, four-year-old Ihvan and seven-month-old Stian. And now I had the illness that kills?

I prayed, “Dear God, help me.” Suddenly I experienced an indescribable peace with the realization that I don’t have cancer because it is going to kill me. It’s because God has a special plan for my life. It is no longer the “Big C” or the “dreaded disease”. It is CANCER. And I am not going to battle it; I am going to BEAT it!

The left mastectomy was scheduled for October 28—my thirty-eighth birthday. The cancer was very aggressive, resulting in very aggressive treatment: ten chemotherapy sessions and twenty-five radiation sessions. Thereafter, the right mastectomy and a hysterectomy followed.

After my second chemo session, I met a lady named Melinda Wessels, a naturopath who changed my world by telling me about the dangers of sugar and gluten. I used to be a sugar addict.

I started getting products from her, beginning with ProPeas, which I’ve been using in my protein shakes since November 2015. Following the completion of chemo and before starting radiation, I began taking CoCoa LeafGreens and BarleyLife Xtra for the effect that greens have on combating cancer.

By November 2016, I was officially in remission. No sign of cancer. I did it. I beat it! I BEAT CANCER!

I officially became an AIM Member in January 2017. And I’ve hosted a number of cancer awareness events, where I told the guests about the AIM products I’ve been using.
Believe it or not, I decided to train for the Ironman 70.3. My biggest motivation is my husband Johan, a professional athlete who has completed several Ironmans. I beat cancer, so why not start big.

Melinda told me about Peak Endurance and Red Rush. Both products helped me prepare for and successfully complete the race, which I finished in a respectable time—
6 hours, 20 minutes. I was hooked! This motivated me to launch my Cancer Can Be Beaten campaign: “Don’t battle it – beat it!” I’m presently training for future events including the 2018 Ironman 70.3 in Dubai.

I’m still using AIM products on a daily basis for nutritional prevention, and I want to be an ambassador for AIM. I believe in the products and would like more people to use them. You never know when life is going to place a mountain in your path. I guess you could say I was assigned the mountain to show others it can be moved.

Supplements … Natural or Synthetic?

When considering supplements-vitamins, minerals, or other nutritive products-one of the first questions you should ask is: Are they synthetic or natural?
Synthetic supplements supply chemically constructed nutrients cooked up in a laboratory that may be of little use to your body and possibly do more harm than good. Some studies of supplement use reveal negative results in test groups taking synthetics:

  • More deaths from lung cancer, stroke, and ischemic heart disease in male smokers using synthetic beta-carotene and vitamin E
  • Birth defects increased by 400 percent in pregnant women taking synthetic
    vitamin A

Your body is natural, so it responds well to natural ingredients. AIM’s high-quality, wholefood concentrates and herbal supplements are made for your body. Nature created their nutrients, which work synergistically to deliver your body’s required nutrition and health benefits.

Supplements are Necessary

Before the age of convenience foods, nutrition came from whole foods that provided natural proportions of necessary vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, phytonutrients, etc. In today’s world, farmland is not as nutrient-rich as it was over a half century ago, so modern crops provide fewer of the required nutrients. Even eating healthily does not guarantee that you are giving your body all that it needs.

Supplementation is necessary for maintaining a strong, healthy body and slowing down the aging process.

AIM Offers the Best

Over thirty-five years ago, The AIM Companies(tm) recognized the nutritional value of whole foods when it first introduced concentrated powders. Today, AIM’s natural garden of nutrition includes a harvest of concentrated whole-food powders and natural health products.

Concentrated Whole-Food Nutrition

Your body easily absorbs the natural nutrients in AIM whole-food powders. Concentrated greens like AIM BarleyLife, AIM BarleyLife Xtra,  AIM LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens nourish your cells with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients packaged and delivered by nature. The many health benefits of juiced carrots and beets are a sip away with AIM Just Carrots and AIM RediBeets. Derived from non-GMO peas, AIM ProPeas delivers healthy vegetable protein for building, maintaining, and replacing tissues in muscles, organs, and body systems. You can’t beat powders for delivering nutrients in balanced-by nature proportions.

Natural Health Products

Choosing synthetic drugs to deal with health issues is a growing dependency all around the world. AIM offers natural choices for prevention, improvement, and maintenance with high quality, natural health products, AIM Bear Paw Garlic for heart health, and seed oils in AIMega providing omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids for the structure, function, and maintenance of every cell in your body.

Necessary for good health and ideal body weight, fiber helps to keep your digestive system working optimally. AIM Herbal Fiberblend contains natural sources of fiber and herbs for cleansing, detoxifying, and maintaining your digestive tract. AIM fit ‘n fiber offers an additional source of fiber that is complementary to Herbal Fiberblend, a healthy product to help you lose weight. Big-box stores and drugstore chains sell cheap, synthetic vitamins and supplements with few or poor health benefits. But remember, nature produced your body. You should not fuel it with anything processed, packaged, or synthesized in a laboratory. Natural or synthetic? It’s your choice. Make AIM yours.

Education with a Nutritional Advantage

Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.Healthy lunches, snack foods and beverages can make a difference in the physical and mental performance of students. That’s why many schools are making changes as to what is available in school cafeterias and vending machines.

A 2017 paper entitled “School Lunch Quality and Academic Performance” shows schools that contract with vendors providing healthy school lunches have a student population that scores higher on achievement tests. Such results support the long-argued medical and nutrition literature that a healthy diet can improve cognitive function.

Student services at the University of British Columbia easily lay out the physical and mental benefits of eating well:

  • More energy
  • Consistent energy levels throughout the day
  • Feel full longer
  • Healthy weight management
  • Stronger bones and muscles
  • Improved immune system
  • Improved ability to focus on tasks like studying and writing

But let’s face it, no matter what their age, most students will not eat well consistently. That is where moms and dads can step in and give their children of all ages an education with the nutritional advantage of AIM supplements.

Introducing AIM products into the lives of children can make a huge difference in their physical health and academic performance throughout their schooling. The following are just a few of many healthy choices in the AIM lineup.

Essential Fatty Acids

Omega-3 is one of two essential fatty acids (EFAs) that must come from dietary intake because the human body cannot produce them. The second is omega-6, which often comes from unhealthy food sources, such as fast foods and processed snacks, cookies and crackers made with refined vegetable oils, so most people get more omega-6 than omega-3. AIMega delivers a balanced 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 from an organic seed-oil source. Every cell in you and your child’s body requires a healthy balance of these EFAs to function optimally.

Greens

Students of all ages may not eat (or refuse to eat) enough vegetables. BarleyLife Xtra, a naturally sweet choice of greens, and CoCoa LeafGreens, chocolaty greens, can provide this missing link to good health.  These concentrated powders offer an unsurpassed source of plant-based nutrition to supplement the all-too-frequent poor diets of students.

Send your children back to school with an AIM advantage.

The Heavy Weight on Children

The World Health Organi­zation states childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the twenty-first century with 2015 statistics showing that the global number of overweight children under five years of age is over forty-two million.

Since the 1970s, the percentage of obese children in the USA has more than tripled. Today, statistics indicate that one in three children in North America is overweight or obese. And the likelihood is that half all these children will be obese adults.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines obesity as having excess body fat and overweight as having excess body weight for a particular height from fat, muscle, bone, water or a combination of these factors. However you define the two terms, it puts children at risk for health problems that used to be seen only in adults, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure.

Even with all of the scary numbers and likely negative results, the fact is that obesity can be prevented or reversed. Parents are encouraged to help their children make a couple of healthy lifestyle changes and enact them together as a family.

Reduce Screen Time

We live in a world where the majority of children spend more time looking at TVs, video games, computers, tablets and smartphones than gazing up at the sky and being physically active beneath it. Limit their screen time and increase physical activity time outdoors.

If all family members regularly disconnect from their gadgets, it opens the door to connecting with each other. And that’s the most important connection of all.

Increase Healthy Nutrition

Eating the right food is one of the simplest ways to stay healthy and maintain an ideal weight. Fruit and vegetables should make up 50 percent of the meal on every plate. Getting creative in the kitchen so that children ask for healthy food is a step worth taking.

AIM can provide supplemental help. Whole-food powders such as CoCoa LeafGreens and ProPeas create a healthy chocolate drink that delivers stomach-filling pea protein and nutrient-packed greens. Getting your kids to ask for BarleyLife or naturally sweet BarleyLife Xtra may be one of the healthiest lifestyle changes you can do for them.

AIM for Pure Nutrition

In the beginning, nature produced all the nutrition and medicine human beings needed to live healthy lives. All around the world, the knowledgeable use of medicinal plants grew over the ages.

From the Amazon jungles to the Middle Kingdom of China, from the continent of Africa to the plains and forests of North America, the healing ways of nature were discovered and used to treat people for their health problems.

Today, much of this natural knowledge has been artificialized by the multi-billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry. A blade of barley grass or a cranberry cannot be patented, so synthetic drugs became the answer to treating health problems, not the individual patient.

Even though the connection between nutrition and good health was noted by the father of medicine, Hippocrates, somehow the truth of “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” got lost in modern medicine. Fortunately for people who choose alternative medicine, there are ways to harvest the earth’s bounty to provide natural products that help to maintain good health and prevent illness.

With this goal in mind, The AIM Companies™ introduced the juice powder of green barley grass back in 1982. AIM BarleyLife® continues to offer antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, along with an uncountable number of plant nutrients—all created by nature, providing pure nutrition in the right amount that is easily assimilated by your body.

BarleyLife helps to reduce inflammation, which is believed to be at the source of disease. Its nutritious greens also help balance your body chemistry to maintain an alkaline body environment that inhibits the onset of disease.

BarleyLife powder is also as part of the Garden Trio® with carrot and beet juice powders. AIM Just Carrots® and AIM RediBeets® are convenient ways of enjoying the many benefits of these healthy vegetables without having to juice them yourself.

And there’s so much more that AIM offers nutritionally, including AIM CoCoa LeafGreens™, nutrient-dense greens with the added antioxidant boost and delicious taste of cocoa, and AIM ProPeas™, a natural, vegan source of protein from peas.

These supplemental sources of whole foods support good health on many levels. For a healthy future, practice prevention today with pure nutrition from AIM.

Since 1982, The AIM Companies has been promoting health and providing a business opportunity with whole-food powder concentrates, like AIM’s BarleyLife , Just Carrots and RediBeets, as well as nutritional supplements

 

The Secret Power of LeafGreens and Proancynol 2000

Oxidative stress is associated with disease, weight gain and the aging process. One of the ways that the body fights oxidative stress is with antioxidant enzymes released by the NRF2 pathway. NRF2 is a protein that lies dormant in each cell. Once that protein is activated, it slips into the cell’s nucleus and triggers the defense systems there, releasing very powerful antioxidant enzymes like superoxide dismutase, glutathione and catalase. These enzymes are very effective at destroying the free radicals that cause oxidative stress. If the NRF2 pathway is triggered regularly, it may significantly reduce overall oxidative stress.

High-quality antioxidants do battle with oxidative stress firsthand.

Although there are multiple ways to trigger this pathway, the simplest and most effective is through the foods that we eat. The dietary pathway trigger alpha
lipoic acid is found in spinach, broccoli and tomatoes. Another one, sulforaphane (Biology Redux, 2013) is found in broccoli, cauliflower and kale, and
resveratrol resides in grapes and cranberries. Drinking green tea, intermittent fasting and exercising seem to work, too.

The AIM Companies™ offers three powerful products that activate the NRF2 pathway. Proancynol 2000 contains both alpha lipoic acid and green tea. It also has a selection of other high-quality antioxidants, all of which do battle with oxidative stress firsthand.

Food sources of sulforaphane are extremely potent pathway triggers.

LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens are good food sources of sulforaphane, an extremely potent pathway trigger. These products also contain the antioxidant enzyme glutathione, which is also released by the NRF2 pathway. Although it is hard to absorb dietary glutathione, food sources of glutathione are extremely important to overall glutathione bioavailability. A 2016 study in Biology Redux linked glutathione to a significant reduction in age-related decline.

If you’re looking to lose weight, put the brakes on age-related decline, or just stay as healthy as possible, look no further than the AIM product line. We hold our products to the highest standards of quality and nutrition!
