Healthy Aging … for the YOUNG

Most young people rarely spend time thinking about growing old. Or do they? One look in the mirror confirms their youthfulness day after day. But the truth that everyone comes to realize is that the mirror can become less friendly with passing time. Aging is inevitable.

Aging Factors

Genetics play a role, but studies of twins, who begin life with identical genes, reveal that environment and lifestyle changes can have a great effect on how they age. For example, alcohol consumption, medication, smoking and stress were factors in the aging differences between twins. Those who avoided these negatives looked more youthful than their twin siblings. Such results support a healthy aging focus.

Talkin Bout My Generation

Generation after generation eventually must face the aging process. Generational names and timeframes are not an exact science but here’s a guideline: The Silent Generation, born between 1925 and 1945; Baby Boomers, 1946 to 1964; Generation X, 1965 to 1976; Millennials, 1977 to 1995; and the presently overlapping iGen and Alpha generations.

Those in the younger generations who are fascinated with celebrities, their fashion style and use of makeup and cosmetic surgery, are encouraged to cover up or remove any signs of aging. At the same time, many are keen to maintain their physiques and physical health with exer­cise and nutrition. Such a focus re­quires deter­mination, open-mindedness and curiosity.

The trick for AIM dis­tri­bu­tors is to make a con­vinc­ing ar­gument to younger generations that the long-term, healthy aging benefits of AIM nutrition at the cellular level will serve them well for a long lifetime.

Healthy Aging Factors from AIM

Over the years, Members who have personally experienced or witnessed health improvements through the use of AIM products can attest to their long-term benefits. AIM parents have been able to raise healthier children, giving them a consistent concentration of nutrients that arms them with a healthy aging advantage.

The idea is that the younger you start taking products such as the Garden Trio, the earlier you introduce healthy aging factors at the cellular level. And all generations can benefit from healthy aging factors from AIM.

Your Heart Healthy AIM

Life is just a heartbeat away. By giving your heart the right nutrition to remain strong, the beat goes on. AIM’s natural health products can help to deliver supplemental support.

Decades of research into the onset and progression of heart conditions and other diseases has lead to the recognition of chronic inflammation as a common factor.1 Eating healthy foods, such as leafy greens and other vegetables, and taking a variety of AIM supplements that provide the following nutrients and foods may help to reduce inflammation.

Omega- 3 and -6 Essential Fatty Acids

Essential for the structure and function of every cell in your body, omega-3 and -6 are polyunsaturated fats that are vital for balancing inflammation.

Flaxseed oil contains omega-3, an essential fatty acid that decreases inflammation. It’s a healthy fat that you never want to be without because it may help to reduce blood clots as well as to lower triglycerides, the blood fat linked to heart disease.2

Sesame and sunflower seed oils are rich in omega-6, which helps to lower LDL: the bad cholesterol.2 Omega-6 is also involved in the natural inflammatory response to injury in the body. A healthy ratio of omega-6 to -3 keeps inflammation in balance.

Alpine Wild Garlic

Garlic has always been considered a healthy addition to food; however, alpine wild garlic has far more active substances than domesticated varieties.

The leaves of wild alpine garlic exert anti-inflammatory activity3, making it a wise supplemental choice for a healthy heart. Besides, alpine garlic has also been shown to help maintain healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels4: two vital factors for maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system.

Coenzyme Q10

The powerful antioxidant required to generate energy production in the cells is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Your heart needs an enormous amount of energy to maintain a steady, relentless beat, so energy-sparking CoQ10 supports the health and function of this vital organ.

CoQ10 has also been identified as having an anti-inflammatory effect on overactive inflammasomes5, protein complexes that can play a role in the development of cardiovascular diseases.6

Fiber

Increasing your fiber intake may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering LDL cholesterol, blood pressure and, of course, inflammation.7 Research indicates that the levels of inflammatory markers associated with cardiovascular disease are reduced by dietary fiber.8

Fiber also provides the “I’m full” factor for reducing caloric intake to maintain a healthy weight, which is one of the best things you can do physically for your heart and overall health.

Red Beetroot

By knowing the extent to which beets are so good for your health, you understand how making red beetroot a part of your food intake is such a healthy habit.9 The heart-protective, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of red beetroot can make you think its deep red color was made to order for healthy blood flow and pressure.

Your body converts the vegetable nitrate in beets into nitric oxide, which improves circulation and lowers blood pressure by relaxing and widening the arteries.
The betaine in beets is a fine source of choline, which helps to regulate inflammation and maintain normal homocysteine levels. Betaine is also associated with lower levels of inflammatory markers.10

AIMega provides a healthy 2:1 ratio of omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids in a blend of organic flax, sesame and sunflower seed oils. Each capsule delivers supplemental essentials for your heart and overall health on a daily basis.

Bear Paw Garlic contains the leaves of alpine wild garlic. The active substances and resulting benefits of this unique source of garlic are available in every capsule.
Note: Bear Paw Garlic is not available in Canada.

CellSparc 360 offers encapsulated, plant-derived CoQ10 that supplements the presence of and protection from this powerful antioxidant for heart and body wellness.

fit ’n fiber increases your fiber intake with a two-tablespoon daily serving, helping to reduce hunger pangs and provide anti-inflammatory benefits.

RediBeets, as the name suggests, is a source of red beetroot in a juice powder, delivering vegetable nutrients that help increase nitric oxide and decrease inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is at the core of health issues like cardiovascular disease. AIM nutrition gets to the heart of the matter by helping to decrease inflammation with heart-healthy nutrients.

Are You Pro . . . Peas?

Protein is found pretty much everywhere in the body—hair, bone, skin, muscles, etc. The enzymes that create the vital biochemical reactions in your body and the oxygen-carrying hemoglobin that makes your blood red are proteins as well.

What’s more, you are made up of around 10,000 proteins, but your body cannot produce all the amino acids that are the building blocks of this macronutrient. That’s why a daily protein supply that includes essential amino acids is so important.

For every 20 pounds of weight, you need a dietary intake of around 7 grams of protein daily. As an example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should be consuming about 53 grams every day. The daily maximum amount of protein in your dietary intake is 35 percent.

There is ample evidence that the source of protein you choose can affect your health negatively or positively. This is one of the reasons AIM provides ProPeas—a healthy, vegetable protein made from field peas.

Inside Protein

A variety of animal-based foods provide protein: meat, fish, eggs, to name a few. Plant-based sources include legumes, nuts and fruits.

A concern among vegetarians is not being able to get a complete protein source that provides the twenty-plus amino acids. However, eating a variety of protein-providing plants can give them everything they need.

With plant protein, you don’t get the saturated fat from red meat, which can negatively affect your health, contributing to acidity and creating a welcoming environment for disease.

ProPeas’ Alkalizing, Non-Allergenic, Vegan Protein

Supplementing your protein intake with vegan-certified ProPeas helps to avoid the acidifying effects of animal-based protein.

Like most vegetables, peas have an alkalizing effect on the body, and your body is naturally in an alkaline state. So ProPeas is a healthy way to reduce your meat intake and a healthier choice than whey or soy protein supplements.

Soy and whey (a by-product of cheese made with cow’s milk) are among the list of common 8 foods that cause allergic reactions. Peas are not a major food allergen.

Non-GMO, Gluten-Free ProPeas

Unlike peas, soy comes from crops that are mostly genetically modified organisms (GMO). ProPeas is certified Non-GMO as well as being certified gluten-free. More healthy reasons to choose ProPeas over other sources of supplemental protein.

The Full Picture

One of the fine side effects of consuming protein is that it is the nutrient that fills you up for the longest period of time, much more so that carbohydrates or fat. If you are trying to lose weight, being regularly satisfied with your food intake for lengthy periods is one of the best ways to cut down on calories and slowly but surely shed unwanted poundage.

One 16-gram serving of ProPeas adds only 60 calories, but it takes over 4 hours to digest. During that time, your body has 12 grams of healthy protein to work with, boosting your fat-burning metabolism as it is digested.

And when it comes to building lean muscle, pea protein is a perfect choice for everyone, from active bodybuilders to couch potatoes. Whether you are trying to bulk up or just trying to maintain a healthy musculature, ProPeas is up for the task. Seniors who tend to lose muscle mass as they age as a result of reduced appetites will benefit greatly from drinking smoothies made with ProPeas.

The many benefits of pea protein provide the same number of pros for supplementing with ProPeas.

The Sports Pack

Sometimes a word says it all. That’s primarily the case with the AIM Sports Pack combination of supplemental AIM nutrition.

As per one of the entries in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, sport is defined as “of, relating to, or suitable for sports.” Suitable for sports suitably sums up Peak Endurance, ProPeas and RediBeets. But honestly, anyone who wishes to feel more energetic and leaner would do well by themselves by taking this combo on a regular basis.

Let’s Get Physical

Whatever your speed, the Sports Pack can help you change gears upward and onward. That’s because supplemental ATP—energy-carrier molecules—green protein and beet nutrients are a combination that helps you to move forward at a greater pace in finer, physical form.

ATP from Peak Endurance

What goes on regarding energy production inside each one of the over thirty trillion cells in the average human body is simply mind-boggling. The cells’ mitochondria produce molecules—adenosine 5-triphosphate disodium (ATP)—that give your body the energy to move and function. This energy production is happening all the time at different levels depending on physical activity.

When you give your body supplemental ATP from Peak Endurance to draw on, it’s sort of like having a reserve tank of gas so that you’ll always be able to fuel your vehicle: your body. It’s an energy drink that also fuels you with six electrolytes, six B vitamins and a side of vitamin C to boot! And the blueberry-açai flavored powder mixes into tasty, liquid body fuel that peaks your endurance.

Protein from ProPeas

Your body also needs large molecules made up of amino acids: protein. It originates from the Greek word, proteios, which translates as “of primary importance.” Protein is needed daily for body structure and function, but not all protein sources are good for your body long-term.

The pea protein in ProPeas is a great, long-term supplement because it is a vegetable source, field peas to be exact. And this is a great alternative to meat protein, which can come with a side of fat, sodium and acidity. Alkalizing green protein contributes to lean muscle mass without added inflammation.

ProPeas is a most suitable protein for weight loss as well. Slow to digest, it fills you up for lengthy periods of time, which means you add fewer calories. And that is one of the key keys to losing pounds and keeping them lost.

Vegetable Nitrate from RediBeets

If there is one molecule you should KNOW more about it’s NO: nitric oxide. It plays a vital role in your arteries, making them relaxed and widened so that blood flows more freely and blood pressure is at the healthy levels it should be.

Beets contain an exceptional source of vegetable nitrate. And nitrate gets converted to nitric oxide once it is assimilated by the body. RediBeets supports that conversion because it’s a concentrated red beet juice powder packed with vegetable nitrate.

The nitrate conversion to NO is an incredibly beneficial molecular transition for all physical activity. Boosted circulation and lowered blood pressure are boons to body movement and the stamina needed to keep moving. RediBeets supplements your body in this transition from nitrate to NO.

Put Peak Endurance, ProPeas and RediBeets together and you have a Sports Pack that packs a potent power booster for physical activity of any intensity. And those are words that say it all.

The Weight of It All

It’s the New Year and already the weight of any resolutions you made can feel like someone nagging you to do something about it. If you have resolutely made up your mind to lower the number that appears when you step on a scale, then at least you can be comforted in knowing that you are not alone. An online survey that asked “What are your New Year’s resolutions?” revealed that 45 percent of the people who responded wanted to lose weight or get in shape. Many fail.

Looking back at all of the weight-loss fads that have been foisted on the public over the years, it would seem that all of the diet plans that have come and gone were most successful in gaining fees and royalties for the people who happened to come up with the latest craze. It’s still happening. What is rarely happening is healthy weight loss that stays off.

 Burn More Than You Consume

Sometimes the most practical way to do something successfully seems . . .  well, too sensible, as though it has to be a case of no pain, no gain. But what if being practical actually works best for losing weight?

Every body is different, but every body burns calories daily. This works for maintaining an ideal body weight. If inactive, your body burns anywhere from 1,800 – 2,400 calories daily in the normal metabolic process. So if your daily caloric intake outweighs what your body burns, you become overweight. It’s pretty much that simple. To reverse this, burn more than you consume to lose weight.

Hunger Pangs

The primary feeling that works against the balance of calories in and calories burned is hunger. We all get hungry. How we react to hunger is what separates the “lightweight” from the overweight.

Do you know that you can eat a big bowl of raw vegetables that gives you healthy plant nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber but with minimal calories? The most difficult part is washing and chopping a daily supply and storing it in the fridge. For some, the most difficult part will be training their minds and bodies that vegetables are a better choice than a big bowl of potato chips. It’s called being in charge of your health.

Suppose you make this vegetable feast one of your three meals of the day. The pounds will slowly waste away from your waist. Slow but sure is a healthy approach to weight loss.

AIM for Satiety

AIM provides another way to have a replacement meal without a lot of calories: the Weight Loss Pack. And a fine mix it is—vegetable protein from ProPeas, a variety of filling fiber from fit ’n fiber and fat- and carbohydrate-metabolizing nutrients from GlucoChrom. Drinking daily smoothies made with ProPeas and fit ’n fiber are an effective way to feel satiated for hours. AIM for weight loss through healthy nutrition.

Helping Your Body’s Metabolism

This is the point where the E-word appears: exercise. Some people cringe at the thought, even though they know it’s good for them. Others don’t feel balanced unless they get some exercise.

These days, there are a lot of extreme forms of physical activity. Do not even go there if you’re someone who tends back away from the idea of physical activity. There are simple ways to get some beneficial exercise without having to go to extremes or a fitness center for that matter.

Take a Walk

Walking is natural for human beings and really easy. Cars and public transportation are great inventions, but they have eliminated the need to walk from point A to B. This vehicular convenience is the usual go-to choice even for short distances, so a simple way to get some daily exercise is missed by walking to a vehicle only.

Climb Stairs

Stairs are a great way to get a cardiovascular workout, but elevators are the vehicle of choice for the ups and downs of daily life. Taking the stairs instead of entering an elevator and pushing a button gives you a lot more exercise. And if you need to go up several flights, start by climbing stairs for a floor or two to build your stamina. You may eventually be able to climb to the top all on your own steam.

In the end, losing pounds that you don’t want to carry around can make living in your body feel so much better. It’s a worthwhile New Year’s resolution that’s doable. Just do it sensibly and get some help from AIM.

The Beet Transition

Life includes any number of transitions over the course of time. The same can be said for AIM when you take a look at its 36-year history. One of the transitional changes common to any successful company is the introduction of new products. But the truth is that Members determine both the longevity of a product’s availability and what AIM continues to sell in the long run.

Red Rush Transition to RediBeets

Red Rush beet juice concentrate was added to the AIM product lineup four years ago, and it has been an amazing ride introducing AIM products to a new demographic of AIM Members. However, Red Rush will no longer be available around mid-2019 or earlier depending on current inventory. RediBeets can provide the same benefits with a larger serving size and lower shipping costs for Members. RediBeets was introduced over 25 years ago, and even after the introduction of Red Rush, RediBeets sales soared.

The Weight of Comparison

Just like Red Rush, AIM’s RediBeets provides an in­cre­dible source of veg­e­table nitrate. The body con­verts this nitrate into nitric oxide, a molecule that relaxes arteries for better circulation, lowers blood pressure and de­creases fatigue, just to name a few of its unique benefits. We have created a new RediBeets serving suggestion. For athletes, mix 4 teaspoons (16 grams) with 6 to 10 ounces of water. Take once daily, one to two hours prior to an activity.

When it comes to com­paring shipping and serving costs of RediBeets and Red Rush, you get a clearer un­­der­standing of why AIM RediBeets sales continue to climb.

RB-RR-chart-compare.jpg

In the end, Members purchase products that suit them best in terms of benefits and costs involved in receiving those benefits. For those of you who have built a downline with Red Rush, we want to help you transition them to RediBeets. Over the next several months, we will supply additional information and advice that will help. If you love Red Rush, we encourage you to try RediBeets at the new athlete serving size of 4 teaspoons and tell us what you think.

Fit is the New Thin: Caitlin Lawrence

Shared by Caitlin Lawrence, AIM Preferred Member

I was born at a normal weight but with a big appetite. I remember dieting from an early age without much success. Although my mom was always into health foods and we were notoriously known as “the healthiest family in the neighborhood,” my weight tended to make people to think otherwise.

My mom was introduced to AIM products when I was about 14. She began forcing the whole family take greens and fiber. As a result of the healthy diet and AIM products, my brother and I rarely got sick. When we did have an illness or surgery, our recovery time was much shorter than average, like the time I had to have my stone-filled gallbladder removed.

When I entered university, I lived in residence for two years and my food choices became increasingly worse. I gained weight, became extremely depressed and anxious and did poorly in school. I suffered terribly from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), to the point where I’d have to eat two hours before going out because of the attacks that followed meals.

I finally decided to move back home and attend community college. My first year went well, but my food intake was still unhealthy. My weight ballooned to 230 pounds, and I was extremely unhappy and self-conscious about my body.

I made up my mind that 2013 was the year for me to make a change, so planning for my weight loss and health gain journey began. On April 28, I started Weight Watchers and began exercising five times a week while working full-time at a fast food restaurant. By December, I dropped to 165 pounds but reached a plateau that I struggled to break through.

I decided to try an elimination cleanse that worked dramatically for my mom, who had strug­gled to lose weight her entire life. The main com­ponent was filling your body with beneficial and nutri­tious food. It was at this point in my life that AIM products became vital to my journey.

My weight has fluctuated over the last three years, but three things have remained consistent: my exercise routine, my healthier food choices and the inclusion of the AIM products in my life.

Since I am lactose intolerant, have IBS and don’t have a gallbladder, I am unable to consume milk products and find it difficult to digest fats, particularly those found in deep-fried foods and meat products. I rely on the ProPeas for protein boosters because I do not eat much meat.

I love to start my day with a smoothie that contains ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and CoCoa LeafGreens. I have taken BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend capsules in the evening for the past eight years, but since attending the AIM Celebration in Toronto, I am now taking the Garden Trio in the morning and for lunch instead. I’m looking forward to reaping the benefits of this inclusion.

Other products I rely on include FloraFood and PrepZymes to help absorb and digest fats, AIMega to provide good fats for brain and skin health and Composure to relieve anxiety and depression.

I’m happy to say that I’m maintaining a weight of 140 pounds and haven’t felt better. My IBS and anxiety still like to rear their heads from time to time, but I am able to control them for the most part through a controlled diet that includes AIM products. While losing weight and gaining health are largely based on determination and drive, I can say with certainty that I would not be where I am today without AIM.

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