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

Protect Your Macula from Degeneration

Twenty-five percent of people over the age of 50 will start to lose their eyesight from various causes but the majority will lose it from a condition called Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD).  The medical system has now renamed it to simply Macular Degeneration because it is now being found in younger people.  The fact is it was never an old age disease however poor or ‘fake’ nutrition is a major contributor.  Some sufferers are as young as the age of 20.  The future for the majority of today’s young people is failing eyesight from following a poor diet.  A nutrient-deficient diet comprising of too much processed foods which are sorely lacking in antioxidants and the specific carotenoids needed to protect our eyes.

Powerful antioxidants called carotenoids in ample amounts can protect your eyes from degeneration.  As free radicals attack your healthy eyes, the macula becomes damaged.  The macula is a small part of the eye that controls central vision and provides you with the ability to see crisp detail and vivid colours.  It depends upon healthy nutrition and blood supply.  A deteriorated macula usually starts in one eye and soon affects the other.

Two specific nutrients are responsible for protecting the macula from degeneration – lutein and zeaxanthin, which are key ingredients in AIM’s GinkgoSense. Eye health was recently covered in the ABC’s summer series of Dr. Michael Mosley’s Trust Me I’m A Doctor, screened in January, he found that lutein and zeaxanthin had a protective effect on the macula.

Lutein is not made by your body.  This powerful carotenoid must be gained from food and nutritional supplements to prevent permanent vision loss.  An anti-inflammatory diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables provides a foundation for healthy vision at any age.  Many health experts are now recommending to eat up to two pieces of fruit and eight vegetables daily. Along with that, a daily lutein supplement can support eye, brain and full-body health.

Zeaxanthin is also an antioxidant found in fruits and vegetables.  It works alongside lutein to maintain the structural integrity of blood vessels that supply the macula to protect against photo-oxidation.

We need to empower ourselves by using our knowledge and taking action.  Ensure you and your loved ones are eating sufficient amounts of fruit and vegetables.  Take AIM BarleyLife on a daily basis to support your health.  Simply mix in AIM Just Carrots (containing carotenoids) and RediBeets for an added boost.  Then supplement with AIM GinkgoSense which contains the very important lutein and zeaxanthin for ongoing eye health.

Can You Help Protect Your Unborn Baby from Alzheimer’s Disease?

Baby-Alzheimer

During pregnancy, mothers often fret over the health of their unborn children. They make sure to eat right and exercise, ensuring baby emerges optimally healthy. Some benefits of mom’s hard work are readily apparent: healthy skin, active eyes, a good skeleton, etc. However, there is evidence that mom’s diet may have far-reaching, long-lasting effects on baby’s health.

According to a Canadian study published in Acta Neuropathologicain utero vitamin A may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease later on, way later on.  The scientists looked at genetically modified mice. Some of the mice were deprived of vitamin A when they were in the womb, others were deprived shortly after they were born, another group was given supplements and a final group just ate a normal, boring mouse diet.

The mice that were deprived of vitamin A performed worse on memory and learning tests when they were full-grown. Additionally, there was evidence that in utero vitamin-A deprivation  had long-term effects even if they were given vitamin A supplements after being born. The good news is that some of the negative effects were reversible when vitamin A was introduced into their diets later.

Additionally, vitamin A deficiency was linked to an increase in a protein (amyloid beta) associated with Alzheimer’s disease.

The researchers also looked at 330 elderly Chinese subjects and found that three quarters of those subjects who were vitamin A deficient were also afflicted with cognitive impairment. Less than half of those with adequate vitamin A levels suffered from similar impairment. Vitamin A deficiency is rare in the west, and it it always best to get vitamin A from dietary sources, like carrots or carrot juice or barley grass juice.

AIM’s Just Carrots provides 420% of your daily vitamin A (from beta-carotene) in every serving and unlike vitamin A supplements, beta-carotene is nontoxic. It might strengthen your immune system, however.

Alex Frisk in the Net!

frisk

AIM nutrition powered AIM-sponsored Athlete Alex Frisk through academic and athletic demands at Red Deer College during the fall of 2016.

“The term was awesome! I found it easier to be awake all day in terms of energy,” Alex stated. “Even staying after class to study in the library after getting through a day of studying. Not taking naps at all. And the best grades I’ve gotten yet.”

Alex’s knee injury that she received while playing on a men’s roller hockey team in July 2016 hasn’t held her back on the ice. As one of three goalies on the Red Deer College Queens, Alex helped her team to reach first place in the league. Highlights of the fall include being in net for the first annual Pink in the Rink fundraiser in support of women’s cancer. “My parents were there to watch me play,” Alex said. And in the game that put her team in first place, Alex had a shutout, blocking twenty-three shots on net.

In April, Alex will participate in the trials for a spot on Team Canada’s roller hockey team. And in May, she is getting married, so 2017 is shaping up to be an incredible year for this talented young woman.

5 Nutritional Strategies for Dry Skin

winter_time_concealed_carry.jpg

Not only is the wintertime cold, but it is also dry. This is because cold air holds less water, making it drier. A parched, arctic environment can wreak havoc on the skin, causing an array of discomforts: itching, pain, outbreaks of eczema and psoriasis and, of course, the dreaded dry eyes.  Faithful applications of lotion and moisturizer and fewer showers may help, and there are some dietary approaches as well.

1.Make Sure You’re Not Vitamin Deficient

True vitamin deficiencies are rare in the developed world as we are more likely to be simply insufficient. However, it would be wise to make sure you’re getting adequate amounts of vitamin A, iodine and riboflavin (B2). Deficiencies in these vitamins can cause dry skin as well as other, greater problems.

2.Omega-3 Fatty Acids

There is no better nutrition for your skin than omega fatty acids. It’s possible that they can be useful for almost any skin problem, including wrinkles.  They play a key role in the upkeep of the cell membrane which lets the good stuff into the cell and throws the bad stuff out. A well functioning cell membrane also helps to prevent cellular dehydration.

3.Vitamin C 

You may be taking vitamin C to prevent colds during the winter, but mighty vitamin C might help with dry skin, too. Vitamin C is a boon for the skin overall, and a study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found evidence that vitamin C may relieve skin dryness.

4. Zinc 

One of the symptoms of zinc deficiency is rough, dry skin, but zinc plays such a large role in skincare that it deserves its own bullet point. Many use zinc for acne, eczema and to ward off wrinkles. It provides general antioxidant protection for your skin and plays a big part in the stabilization of the cell membrane, an important component of cell hydration.

5. Probiotics 

Believe it or not, the bacteria in your gut can affect the quality of your skin. A belly full of healthy bacteria reduces inflammation. There is good evidence that unchecked inflammation empowers skin problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis. Probiotics assist the skin’s barrier function and helps your skin hold onto more moisture.
