Took BarleyLife … Haven’t Had Arthritis Since

Shared by Dorothy Kutt, AIM Member

Many years ago, my ankle started giving me trouble. My doctor had it X-rayed and determined it was arthritis. I was in my fifties at the time. The ankle was swollen, and there was an awful lot of pain that was so bad I could barely walk. Clients had to be brought to me at the credit union where I worked. Before the arthritis, I would always go out to greet them. Just couldn’t do it anymore. Of course, I could have taken pills that my doctor said would make me sick, so I didn’t.

Now I used to get my nails done by a woman whose mother-in-law had cancer. When she noticed my difficulty with walking, she asked me what was wrong. I told her it was arthritis. She gave me a massage, which helped, but it wasn’t the answer. At one point, I told her I don’t have much of an appetite in the morning. That’s when she handed me a canister of the BarleyLife she stocked in her shop and said, “You might want to try this. It’s better than nothing for breakfast.”

I started taking the powder and then switched to capsules. Halfway through the second bottle, the pain and swelling was gone. If I ever ran out and had to stop for a while, I’d get a tiny ache, warning me to get back on BarleyLife. So I stayed on it. Never had arthritis since.”

Even though I’m eighty-four, I don’t feel like it. I’m the oldest one in my family, and I feel great! I’m into organic food, and I walk six kilometers daily. All in all, I love my BarleyLife and take seven capsules every morning. I let other people know about it too, and it’s helped them as well. I would not do without BarleyLife. I’d starve first.

AIM CellSparc 360 Sparks Your Heart … and More

Take a moment to consider the hardest-working organ in the body. And after reading what coenzyme Q10 can do to help you and your heart keep working optimally, you are likely to say I’m going to help my heart stay strong and healthy by taking AIM CellSparc 360 daily.

Heart Health

The key ingredient in CellSparc 360 is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)—a vitamin-like nutrient that is absolutely essential for sparking the production of energy in the cells of your body. Your heart requires more energy than any other organ, and CoQ10 helps to improve the flow and transformation of energy in the muscular tissue of your heart.

Most of the research conducted on coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) has focused on its benefits for patients with heart disease. Nine placebo-controlled studies confirm both the effectiveness and safety of supplemental CoQ10.

Treated with CoQ10 for high blood pressure, the patients of a 1994 study experienced a gratifying improvement in their quality of life, which was further enhanced by a marked reduction in their need for high blood pressure medication and a decreased financial burden associated with the cost of these drugs.

“It is unthinkable for me to practice good cardiology without the help of Coenzyme Q10,” wrote the cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra in his book The Coenzyme Q10 Phenomenon. “Research has shown that CoQ10 is an undisputable heart remedy.”

CellSparc 360 contributes even more to heart health with the addition of fish oil and tocotrienols (vitamin E), both of which help to naturally reduce high cholesterol.

Anti-Aging

Even though most of the research on CoQ10 is heart-related, this antioxidant helps to maintain good health in many other ways as a scavenger of free radicals. Since CoQ10 is essential for all of your cells, a deficiency negatively affects your body, which begins a gradual decline in the production of CoQ10 after the age of twenty.

In his Introduction to Coenzyme Q10, Dr. Peter H. Langsjoen wrote that “it is not surprising to find a seemingly diverse number of disease states which respond favorably to CoQ10 supplementation … In keeping with the free radical theory of aging, these antioxidant properties of CoQ10 have clear implications in the slowing of aging and age related degenerative diseases.”

Supplementing with CellSparc 360 can help contribute to a long, healthy lifetime.

Since 1982, The AIM Companies has been promoting health and providing a business opportunity with whole-food powder concentrates and nutritional supplements like CellSparc 360.

Can’t Be Beet

Eating beets has always been considered a healthy dietary factor. These days, it seems that there’s a lot of information floating around out there in regard to the health benefits of beet juice. Here are some the things that have been written about this juice:

  • Beet juice provides incredible cardiovascular benefits that improve active function
  • Benefits of beet juice exceed expectations
  • Daily intake of beet juice promotes brain health in older adults
  • Beet juice lowers blood pressure
  • Beet juice boosts athletic performance by up to 16 percent

In 2014, AIM introduced Red Rush, a beet juice concentrate that delivers a nitric oxide boost, and twenty years ago AIM introduced the beet juice powder of RediBeets, so in a way, AIM has been ahead of its time and deserves its place on top of the nutritional ladder.

The concentrated nutrition from beet juice powder has numerous health benefits. Beet nutrients, such as betaine, help to cleanse your liver, the hard-working organ that filters and neutralizes any toxins that enter your body.

For your cardiovascular health, researchers have determined that along with improving circulation and lowering blood pressure, beet juice helps you do physical activities with less effort by allowing your muscles to function with smaller amounts of oxygen. No matter what your age, you won’t be as breathless when physically active if you drink beet juice.

The word is out. Beets are in. For your overall health, make RediBeets a part of your nutritional intake. And boost your nitric oxide levels even more with Red Rush. Whatever you can do to ensure your body gets an optimal amount of necessary nutrients on a daily basis will help to maintain good health and prevent ailments.

Since 1982, The AIM Companies has been promoting health and providing a business opportunity with whole-food powder concentrates and nutritional supplements.

RediBeets Being Tested in Clinical Trials

Clare Zamzow, PhD candidate at Boise State University in Boise, Idaho, is using AIM’s RediBeets in an upcoming clinical trial at the college’s Human Performance Lab. The trial will test the effects of dietary nitrate on trained athletes during wingate trials.

A wingate trial, for those unfamiliar, is similar to riding a stationary bicycle. The experience, however, is much, much different. Prior to the test, the wingate is adjusted to a rider’s body weight. The participant hops on the apparatus and pedals, warming up for thirty seconds. At that point, the test subject is asked to pedal as hard and as fast as he or she can, but then the resistance—which is based on body weight—kicks in. It suddenly feels like you’re running through thick mud, each revolution of the pedal becoming slower and more cumbersome. A thirty-second trial becomes an eternity, a sixty-second trial, a nightmare.

Although the test is unpleasant for the participants, it’s a great way to measure maximum endurance and power output in a short amount of time. Each participant in the study is asked to participate twice in this study, once after drinking RediBeets and once after using a placebo drink. Then at the end of the study, Zamzow will compare the two time trials and look for significant statistical patterns in the data. Participants are also asked to test their dietary nitrate levels with Berkeley Test® Strips.

The AIM Companies™ has provided the RediBeets to the clinical trial. We are excited by the prospect of having our product used in advancement of science. The majority of studies on beet juice have shown positive results, i.e., beet juice improves athletic performance.

One other item of note: Red Rush was disallowed due to the concern that Red Rush’s great-tasting cherries and lemons could somehow interfere with the data collection. However, the results will still be applicable to Red Rush.

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.

Note: The AIM Companies is a wholefood juice concentrate and nutritional supplement network marketing company that has been in business since 1982.

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!
