The Many Pros of Proancynol 2000

Your body is under continuous attack by unstable molecules known as free radicals. To fully understand their ill nature, think of them as psychopaths whose only interest is to hurt and kill you. Antioxidants calm these psychotic molecules by giving them what they need: a missing electron. Proancynol 2000 supplements your body’s dependence on protective antioxidants.

It’s not only that Proancynol 2000 delivers a vast variety of antioxidants from only seven ingredients, it’s the fact that all of its antioxidant molecules work even better as a team to protect you from free radical damage to your DNA, cells, fats, proteins, tissues and organs.

Some Proancynol 2000 ingredients take an important step further by working synergistically to help increase levels of possibly the most powerful antioxidant in your body: glutathione.

Glutathione Greatness

Pronounced glue-ta-THIGH-own, it is present in everything alive on Earth, for as stated in the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB): “There are virtually no living organisms on this planet—animal or plant—whose cells don’t contain some glutathione.”1
Mainly produced by the liver and occurring in all cell types, glutathione is primarily made up of three amino acids: glutamate, glycine and cysteine.2 Glutathione supplements alone are ineffective in increasing levels because the body breaks down this glutathione into its three amino acids.

Studies have shown that people with high levels of glutathione have longer life spans and a greater sense of well-being than those with low levels. This king of antioxidants is essential for removing toxins from the body, inhibiting oxidation, preventing the onset of disease and promoting youthfulness.

Unfortunately, youthfulness is com­promised during the aging process because the body begins to produce lower amounts of many essential nutrients, especially glutathione. A number of other factors, such as poor nutrition, environmental toxins and stress, can also contribute to glutathione deficiency.

Proancynol 2000 Boosts Glutathione Production

Supplementing with antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 can help to increase the amount of protective glutathione in your body. Three antioxidant ingredients in Proancynol 2000 are particularly beneficial for its production.

  1. Alpha-lipoic acid helps to regenerate glutathione.
  2. N-acetylcysteine increases intracellular glutathione, especially in liver tissue.
  3. Selenium is a vital micronutrient in glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that reduces free radicals and oxidation in the body.

Increasing glutathione levels in your body is just one of the many pros of Proancynol 2000, so it’s always a good time to go pro with Proancynol 2000!

CranVerry+ vs. Candida

Along with friendly and unfriendly bacteria, one of the microorganisms that lives in the body’s microbiome is fungi. One is a species of yeast known as Candida, a pathogenic, parasitic, single-celled fungus. But it’s only as bad as it sounds when there is an overgrowth, just like the bad bacteria that serve a purpose when kept in balance but can make you sick when overpopulated in your body.

Three of the most common causes of Candida overgrowth are:

  1. Over-consuming refined carbohy­drates and sugars—Candida thrives on sugar
  2. Drinking too much alcohol—more sugar
  3. Taking antibiotics—kills the bad and good bacteria that keep Candida levels in balance

An unhealthy excess of Can­dida albicans—the most common species—causes candidiasis, a variety of yeast infections that can affect the mouth, skin, stomach, urinary tract, penis or vagina. Fortunately, AIM has a natural solution that can help alleviate and prevent Candida overgrowth.

Candida-Combating Ingredients in CranVerry+

In addition to proanthocyanidin-rich cranberry extract providing an anti-adhesive effect on urinary bacteria, there are three additional ingredients in CranVerry+ with properties that combat Candida yeast: resveratrol, beta-glucanase and mangosteen.

Candida Death by Resveratrol and Mangosteen

Sourced from giant knotweed root for the CranVerry+ formula, resveratrol is a phytonutrient that occurs naturally in plants and acts like an antioxidant, protecting the body from damage. In the March 2015 issue of Current Microbiology, research shows that resveratrol’s anti­fungal activity brings about the death of Candida albicans.1

One of many unique tropical fruits, mangosteen has a thick, deep purple peel that protects its delectable white sections of fruit. CranVerry+ contains a concentration of mangosteen fruit and its protective rind that provides a wide variety of natural antioxidants called xanthones. A 2009 study published in the Journal of Oral Science reveals that a mangosteen xanthone called alpha-mangostin kills Candida albicans within 20 minutes of exposure.2

Biofilm Destruction by Beta-Glucanase

The slimy shield that encloses and protects Candida albicans is called biofilm, which allows this yeast to multiply and cause infections. Research published in the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules 2018 issue shows that an enzyme called beta-glucanase eats away at beta-glucan, the main structural component of biofilm.3 Weakening this shielding slime with the beta-glucanase in CranVerry+ can make it even easier for antifungal resveratrol and mangosteen to go for the Candida kill.

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.

No Longer Suffers with Hay Fever

Shared by Angela Lu, AIM Director

Initially, when I came to America, I suffered from serious hay fever every spring. My friend who lived far away in Texas would send me canisters of BarleyLife powder, instructing me to take it on an empty stomach every morning to improve my health so that I would be no longer troubled by this allergy. I tried it for several months and it worked.

Little by little, I also noticed that my skin and hair quality improved. Even when I had knife cuts or oil burns from working at my restaurant, BarleyLife helped me to heal quickly, and I never needed to worry that these injuries might get infected.

For almost 30 years, BarleyLife has been my only supplement. One of its main benefits is to strengthen our body cells, and it makes me strong to be able to do the physically demanding work required at the restaurant. My health is even better than when I was young.

LeafGreens and RediBeets for Liver Health

As part of your body’s digestive system, the liver is a triangle-shaped organ weighing around three pounds but plays a weighty role in the health of your body. Your liver is involved in over 500 functions, including bile production for digestion, detoxification and carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.

One of the liver’s primary functions is acting as a filter. All of the blood that passes through your digestive tract goes through the liver, which metabolizes your dietary nutrients into useful substances, storing essentials such as glycogen (sugar), vitamins and minerals and delivering them to cells when required.

The liver also filters toxins in the blood, so it plays a vital role in eliminating the compounds that can harm you along with giving your body the nutrient it needs. Every body needs such an effective filter.

Liver Support from AIM

All of the AIM whole-food powders can be beneficial for your liver by providing useful nutrients that are easily absorbed, circulated through your liver and directed to your cells when and where needed.

Examining LeafGreens and RediBeets for some of their unique nutrients and benefits, including detoxifying properties, gives you an idea of how AIM nutrition can support liver health.

LeafGreens

Along with the juice powder of young barley plants, LeafGreens con­tains the powders of spinach and four cruciferous vege­tables: arugula, broccoli sprout, kale and Swiss chard. A 2015 review article that examined plant consumption determined that “Green leaves are the best for liver health.”1

The leafy greens in LeafGreens are detoxifying and extraordinarily rich in plant compounds that your liver will recognize as useful substances. For example, sulforaphane in broccoli sprouts “is likely to be highly effective in improving liver function through reduction of oxidative stress.”2 Lutein in spinach may help to decrease inflammation and oxidative stress in the eyes and the liver.3

RediBeets

One of the unique nutrients in RediBeets is betaine, a key liver nu­trient found in vegetables like spinach and beets. The American Jour­nal of Clinical Nutrition pub­lished a 2004 article on betaine that reported the following:

• Studies show that be­taine improves liver function

• Betaine prevents or reduces accumulation of fat in the liver.

• This important human nutrient is absorbed rapidly and helps to maintain liver health.”4

Furthermore, a 2016 study showed that “betaine can halt and even reverse progression of the disruption of liver function.”5

LeafGreens and RediBeets are two great choices among AIM whole-food powders that support liver health with Nutrition that works!

Picture Perfect and Happily Healthy with Help from AIM Nutrition

Shared by George McPherson, Chairman’s Club Director

Over the years, I have dealt with a number of health problems, some far more serious than others. To this day, the AIM products have played a major role in keeping me healthy.

When Herbal Fiberblend first became available in 1988, I was dealing with painfully aggravating hemorrhoids, to the point where I had to have one of them removed. Thanks to Herbal Fiberblend, those uncomfortable issues are history.

In 2002, I was diagnosed with a deadly disease: prostate cancer. An appointment was scheduled for me to have surgery at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. At that time, the immediate medical response was to remove the prostate if the PSA appeared to be elevating.

We decided to monitor and wait, and, in the meantime, we got connected to a naturopathic doctor who felt we were on the right track to try alternatives. I started on a series of chelation therapy and homeopathic medicines along with large amounts of the AIM products … and no surgery!

Nine years later, however, I had a blockage in my bowel and had immediate surgery to remove a tumor. The surgeon sent samples of this growth to test for cancer.

A few days later, the surgeon told us that the tumor was cancerous and recommended chemotherapy. He referred me to an oncologist, who said his reports showed I was nearing stage-4 prostate cancer and suggested I be a candidate for a new trial of experimental chemo.

That’s when my wife, Muriel, stepped in and stalled for time from any further “medical” moves. Again, my naturopathic doctor treated me naturally and complimented us for taking the AIM products.

I passed the 80-year mark in March of 2018 and still enjoy good health. I continue to take the Garden Trio, AIMega, Frame Essentials, PrepZymes, fit ’n fiber mixed with Herbal Fiberblend, which tastes good, along with a few others.

Now the route that we took to deal with prostate cancer the past 16 years may not be the answer for everybody, but it sure has worked for me.

4 Beet Things Worth Knowing  

1 Beets are a variety of Amaranthaceae, which is the same plant family as Swiss chard. Like chard, beetroot greens can be eaten for an incredibly rich source of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin. The roots are naturally sweet so some people may wonder whether or not it’s a fruit. But both the greens and root are edible vegetables. It’s the sweetness that may be confusing, especially since beetroot contains more natural sugar than any other vegetable. There are around 9 grams of sugar in one cup of cooked beets. One serving of AIM RediBeets contains only 3 grams of natural sugar from this super nutritious root vegetable.

2 Some people do not appreciate the somewhat earthy taste of beetroot. The source of that particular flavor is an organic compound that occurs naturally in beets:  geosmin. Beets that taste the best have a balance between geosmin and sugar. Interestingly enough, there’s a connection to the smell produced by rainfall on soil because of the presence of geosmin. Human beings have an incredible ability to detect the odor of geosmin in the air when rain falls on earth and disturbs this compound.  In fact, the estimation is that people can detect geosmin in as low a concentration as 5 parts per trillion. By comparison, that would be around one teaspoon of geosmin in 200 Olympic swimming pools. Consider this olfactory sensitivity the next time you get a whiff of rain . . . or a taste of beets.

3 The three main varieties of beets are red, golden and Chioggia.  An Italian heirloom variety, Chioggia beets are named after a town near Venice. This especially sweet beet is aptly nick-named both candy cane and candy stripe beet for its appealing red and white rings when the root is sliced. Golden beets are named for their interior orangey-yellow color. They tend to have an earthier taste and less sweetness than red beets due to the likely dominance of geosmin over sugar. Crimson red to the core, red beets are the most common type to appear on dinner tables, especially as a cooked vegetable or in delectable bowls of borscht soup. Red beets are the variety used to make the juice powder in RediBeets.

 4 Your best bet for understanding the nature of beets is 3 words than begin with bet: betalains, betacyanins and betaine. Betalains are water-soluble plant pigments. One classification is betacyanins, the pigment in red beets. Beetroot extracts containing betalains are used as food coloring in edibles that include soups, sauces, jams, fruit yogurt and ice cream. This distinctive pigment also finds its way into cosmetics and drugs. But beyond the outer use of coloring, betalains provide inner benefits for people from various health properties: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cancer-inhibiting and chemo-preventative. The betaine in beets is an amino acid compound that can help break down fatty acids in the liver and help people to recover from liver damage. Betaine may also help the liver to process harmful chemicals, such as carbon tetrachloride and ethanol, and eliminate them from the body.

The more you learn about beets, the more you realize that eating these vegetables and supplementing with RediBeets can support better health.
