NEW! Nutrition Facts Label Rules

Members will most likely have noticed that AIM has been making revisions to food product labels. Such changes are for important, time-sensitive reasons.

Back in May 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made an announcement that the rules regarding Nutrition Facts on food products would have to change to reflect the latest scientific information.

The most notable new info is the link between diet and chronic diseases that The AIM Companies has recognized since 1982, when the incomparably nutritious juice powder of barley grass was first introduced.

One of the FDA’s main reasons for this “refreshed design” in labeling is to make it easier for consumers to make informed decisions about their food choices, particularly in regard to servings, calories and sugar.

NutritionFactsFDAArticle

Bigger and Bolder Changes

Figuring out what the information on a label means hasn’t always been easy. With the new format, important details are much easier to read:

  1. Right at the top under Nutrition Facts, the servings per container and the number of serving sizes are bigger and bolder.
  1. The biggest and boldest detail of them all is calories per serving, one of the most important bits of information when it comes to weight management.
  1. The addition of added sugars shows the huge difference between what is naturally sweet and unnaturally sweetened.

And based on new scientific evidence, updated daily values for nutrients have been added as well. Speaking of % Daily Values, there is now a clearer definition of what it actually means: how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet.

The Deadline for Change

The original due date for completing the design of these new labels was July 28, 2018.  After the rules were finalized, industry and consumer groups provided feedback regarding the need for more time to make the label changes. In October 2017, the FDA published a proposal to extend the compliance date by approximately one and a half years.

AIM is already ahead of the game, having implemented changes to some of our product labels. More labels will be revised to reflect the new rules. At the same time, the additional costs involved with such a monumental change will be minimized. For example, labels with the former Nutrition Facts can now be used past the old deadline of July 2018, complying with the FDA’s acknowledgment that consumers will see both old and the new versions of labels during the transition period.

So keep your eye on labels!

AIM BarleyLife Is Now Gluten-Free

It’s official! AIM is excited to announce that all BarleyLife 360 gram (Family size) and BarleyLife 180 gram (Convenience size) canisters are AIM certified Gluten-Free!
How is a gluten-free BarleyLife achieved? As you might guess, it starts in the field. BarleyLife growing conditions and harvesting methods were carefully analyzed and refined to minimize the possibility of gluten in the finished powder. Then over the past year, AIM began rigorously testing all BarleyLife produced for gluten content. The test results were conclusive—BarleyLife consistently achieved the gluten-free standard of less than 20 ppm. And from now on we will test every batch of BarleyLife to confirm it meets the Gluten-Free standard. And don’t forget, AIM BarleyLife is also certified kosher, vegan and non-GMO!
A Gluten-Free symbol will soon be added to all 360-gram and 180-gram canisters and eventually to labels in the months to come. But you can tell your customers, downline, and prospects the great news today!

The Inflammatory Core of Arthritis

People suffering with arthritis have a great need to cool the inflammation associated with pain and stiffness. Arthritis is just one of many diseases with the suffix -itis, which indicates an inflammatory condition.

Osteoarthritis—the degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone—is the most common type. Although this chronic disease has been classified as non-inflammatory by the medical community, research published in 2013 shows inflammation plays a role in this debilitating disease that, in effect, can turn an affected joint into a chronic wound1. One of the article’s headings says it all:

Chronic, low-grade inflammation sets the stage for chronic disease

The AIM solution is ‘Nutrition that works’ at the source of joint pain, providing support that can reduce inflammation and help the body to repair cells.

Joint Relief with Frame Essentials

The synergistic effects of glucosamine, boswellia and MSM in Frame Essentials work wonders in relieving joint pain and providing nutrients to help soothe inflammation, relieve osteoarthritic pain and support joint health.

Inflammation Reduction with BarleyLife

By alkalinizing an acidic system, AIM BarleyLife® keeps disease-inducing inflammation at bay. The best action for preventing inflammation throughout the body is to take these nutrient-rich greens daily.

Cellular Overhaul with AIMega

The omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) in AIMega® provide the good fats required to build and maintain healthy cells on a daily basis. Two of the numerous benefits of omega-3 are reducing inflammation and helping to lower the risk of chronic diseases, such as arthritis, cancer and heart disease.

To get results, the body needs support on a daily basis. The positive impact of all three nutritional supplements working together can have a healing effect on a body ravaged by arthritis.

According to Dr. Michael Greger (NutritionFacts.org), “The best kept secret in medicine is that, given the right conditions, the body heals itself … the power of nutrition as medicine may be the best investment we can make.”

AIM has never kept any of this a secret.

Nutritional Supplements Are Cost Effective, Research Finds

11149562_10153183683504909_4994868866564417512_n

If you’ve been a long-standing BarleyLife drinker, it might be a good time to pat yourself on the back.  Sure, drinking BarrleyLife has improved your nutrition, and that in turn, has likely enhanced your overall health, but it looks like all those green smoothies may have saved you some money as well. A study published in Clinical Nutrition took a look at the cost-effectiveness of nutritional supplements used in care facilities and nursing homes, and what they discovered was that taking non-disease specific nutritional supplements may save money by offsetting healthcare costs.

The researchers sifted through a huge body of evidence that spanned nineteen publications and dozens of articles on the cost and cost-effectiveness of supplement usage in care facilities.  When nutritional supplements were used for a period of  less than three months, there was a 5% reduction in healthcare costs. When supplements were used for longer than three months, the savings rose to 9.2%. The research also showed that supplements improved quality of life, lowered the rates of infections, falls, functional limitations and minor post-operative complications.

From the study:

Overall, the reviewed studies, mostly based on retrospective cost analyses, indicate that ONS (oral nutritional supplements) use in the community produce an overall cost advantage or near neutral balance, often in association with clinically relevant outcomes, suggesting cost effectiveness. There is a need for prospective studies designed to examine primary economic outcomes.

So invest in your health with AIM’s excellent line of nutritional supplements! You’ll be glad that you did.
