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!

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.

Prepare or Repair!

A comment from AIM-sponsored athlete and oldest competing IronMan Lew Hollander:

A few thoughts on The AIM Companies’ products. I really love all of them. They are well thought out, and well presented.

For health and long life my motto is: PREPARE or REPAIR. Now that sounds simple enough, but most people do not prepare for old age. What does the health world tell you? To diet and exercise. For one’s diet it is fruits, nuts and vegetables. Now AIM has it all in an excellent grouping of products: BarleyLife, CoCoa LeafGreens and ProPeas.

CalciAIM is well designed, especially for athletes. You want 3 to 1 calcium to magnesium (386 to 104) so you are about right. NOW where you really have something is Red Rush nitric oxide boost. It is my favorite AIM product because it has beet nitrate that the body converts to NO (nitric oxide), one of the most important molecules in the functioning human body. It was molecule of the year. It assists in the Krebs cycle, which is a series of chemical reactions used by all aerobic organisms to release stored energy. This will improve brain function, sex life, improve longevity and energy levels.

My personal routine is to mix all the above every morning with orange juice and pomegranate, ½ and ½ in a big glass. Now I am pretty well covered for the day, so I can eat whatever I want and not worry about getting my veggies.

What you do between ages 30-40, will determine what you will be able to do at 80-90 and beyond, I hope. Prepare or repair.

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.

Kids Love the Chocolaty Taste — And So Does the Kid in You!

Who would have imagined adding cocoa to greens would taste so good?  We’re pretty sure it was an adult, but the reality is that kids clamor for it too.  Of course the reason is the chocolaty taste, which does a fabulous job of masking “the greens.”  And what exceptional greens they are. We take the leaf powders of three of today’s most popular vegetables in the produce section of your grocery store: arugula, kale and Swiss chard. On top of these super veggies we add spinach leaf and broccoli sprout powders and the juice powder of barley grass.

But as its name suggests, CoCoa LeafGreens isn’t just about delivering the greens. There is in fact a three-part mixture of cocoa powders—organic cacao powder, organic cocoa powder, and alkalized Dutch cocoa.  What you may not know is, these cocoa powders actually contain a storehouse of antioxidants and flavonoids.

When the nutritional benefits of cocoa are added to the mix, you get something truly remarkable–a super-nutritious greens beverage with a delicious chocolaty taste.  There’s something really satisfying about having your greens and thoroughly enjoying it at the same time. So go on . . share CoCoa LeafGreens with the kids, but don’t forget to mix yourself a glass.  It’s especially delicious blended in a smoothie and in all kinds of milk—my favorite is almond milk.

P.S.: Do you have a CoCoa LeafGreens recipe or story?  Drop an email to The AIM Companies at partners@aimintl.com and we might publish it!
