Nola Excels in Pan Pacific Masters

AIM Member Nola Nolte has a healthy life motto: exercise to enjoy a better quality of life and no matter what your health and fitness goals are, proper nutrition is essential.

Nola, who lives on the mid-north New South Wales coast, competed in the Pan Pacific Masters Games on the Gold Coast last November and came home with three medals. The events she participated in were the beach mile, 5k road race, 4k cross country and 10.1k trail run.

Nola has been a Member since 2017 and firmly believes that the AIM products contributed to her athletic success. In the lead up to the Pan Pacific Games, she took plenty of ProPeas, Red Rush and Peak Endurance, and now enjoys CranVerry+, FloraFood and GinkgoSense as part of her daily maintenance regime.

The growth of both athletic participation and the body of research in sport nutrition and exercise science has increased exponentially in 20 years. This evidence-based collection of data has helped athletes fine-tune the art of sport nutrition with results as proof. One nutritious juice that has been investigated by scientists is derived from beetroot.

Beetroot juice contains an active nutrient called nitrate, which assists in pro­longing time to exhaustion and making exercise less tiring. This is called greater energy efficiency and has been shown to work in studies with athletes including the recreational and non-elite athlete subjects.

Studies with beetroot juice show that subjects who drank this beverage had better performance and heart function while exercising.

Nitrates are converted in the body to various other compounds and part of this process involves bacteria found in the mouth and digestive tract.

So how does beetroot juice work? Basically, it doubles the amount of nitrate in the blood and reduces the rate at which muscles use their source of energy, ATP.

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.

AIM Nutrition Changed My Life

Shared by Tina Wilkerson, AIM Director and Personal Trainer

Back in 2001, after my daughter, Jordan, was born, I felt very poorly. I had a number of health issues: fatigue, headaches, aching joints, and I was overweight. At that point in time, I wasn’t a personal trainer yet, but I began a wellness journey that would change my life for the better and allow me to help others do the same.

The Journey

I managed to go from size 14 to 2, but, honestly, I didn’t do it in a healthy way. I wish I had had the knowledge that I have now so that I wouldn’t have taxed my body as hard as I did. I would have been able to maintain my weight in a healthy way.

During my wellness journey, I got into personal training and opened my own studio. However, the stress of starting a business and raising a daughter caught up with me. I regularly worked 12-hour days, and I was getting sick a lot and taking antibiotics probably four times a year.

Discovering AIM

Six years ago, I met Star Sapphire Director Leré Robinson, who mentored me on the use of AIM products. I started on a committed regimen of the Garden Trio, FloraFood, AIMega, Composure and Renewed Balance body cream. Within three months, I was feeling completely renewed, capable and energetic.

I credit AIM nutrition with these positive changes because I didn’t do anything else that was different. As a personal trainer, I already exercised and ate well, so it was the AIM products that really changed my life.

That’s when I started telling all of my clients about AIM, recommending products not only for losing weight but for improving all kinds of body functions. Those who come to my studio are generally middle-aged woman, many of whom have chronic pain, don’t sleep well, have poor digestive function and hormonal imbalance. Many want to improve their mobility, or what I call the “feel good” factor.

In addition to the exercise component to enhance mobility, I use AIM products to improve their wellness on an intracellular level. Addressing external factors of wellness, such as exercise (mild to moderate), sufficient sleep, sun exposure, etc., and the internal factors of eating well and supplementing with AIM products has helped a lot of my clients to get stellar results. They are able to look better, move better, feel better and be better from the inside out.

AIMing for Weight Loss

Most of my clients have weight loss goals. Last year, I ran a six-week weight-loss challenge. I had them replace their highest calorie meal of the day with a ProPeas shake. The average weight loss was eight pounds.

ProPeas and fit ’n fiber are mostly used for meal re­placements, having developed a couple of recipes that include adding kale or spinach and a teaspoon of healthy oil. Almost all of my clients also use Peak Endurance for supplemental energy.

The combination of AIM products and functional exercise—movement that helps you age well—is a sustain­able, balanced approach to weight loss and wellness, which I believe is healthiest after experiencing my own health journey and 14 years as a personal trainer.
At the same time, there are definitely unhealthy, unsustainable ways to lose weight. Because of my own history, I don’t encourage extreme exercise, which is not helpful and likely harmful for your body in the long run.

As men and women age, exercise can actually become counter-productive very quickly. Exercise naturally creates inflammation in the body. And if you’re an older person, overweight, have health issues, have been on a lot of meds or you haven’t moved well in a long time, then you’re already walking around with a lot of chronic, low-grade inflammation.

Increasing inflammation with the wrong kind of exercise is only going to make matters worse. And while we’re on the subject, reducing inflammation with AIM whole-food concentrates such as BarleyLife is an ideal approach to wellness. And as for exercise, you just have to move smart.

I don’t even like to use the word exercise; I just think movement. The right kind makes everything better; the wrong kind makes everything worse. Keep moving in the right way that makes you feel better and your life better.

Everything that has transpired in the 10½ years that I’ve owned Elite Personal Training has come out of my own wellness journey, just like my use of the AIM products. I will continue to promote them in my studio because they have changed my life and have been changing the lives of my clients.

Certifications Matter

Members (whole-food concentrates and nutritional supplement distributors for The AIM Companies) worldwide recognize that our products are the finest. However, people outside of the AIM family are faced with many choices, so it isn’t easy for them to make the best selections when it comes to natural health products.

Independent distributors of AIM’s substantial line of high-quality products have several helpful deciding factors at their disposal to encourage people to make the finest choices: product certifications.

Knowing Product Certifications

AIM has five certifications that are featured on product labels and the website and in catalogs, datasheets and other AIM literature: Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, certified Vegan, Kosher and Sport Approved. It is important to be familiar with each certification when speaking to people who may be interested in purchasing AIM products.

As an example, people who are vegetarians or vegans are likely to share this aspect of their lives when talking about health-related issues and would be more inclined to purchase a particular supplement that fits their lifestyle choices.

Awareness of the certifications increases the product knowledge and credibility of AIM independent distributors and prevents unsuitable recommendations.

Non-GMO products do not contain genetically modified ingredients

Every AIM product is certified Non-GMO, so this fact is easy to remember for the entire AIM lineup. None of the ingredients that AIM uses contains genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are bioengineered animals or plants through the use of gene-splicing.

GMOs have created a worldwide concern for people who want only natural sources of nutrition. All AIM products respect that concern. Telling prospective customers that every AIM product is certified Non-GMO is as good an introduction as any.

Gluten-free products contain less than 20 parts per million (PPM) of gluten

The AIM Companies™ has tested for the presence of gluten in all of its products. Most AIM products have tested gluten-free except for BarleyLife capsules, BarleyLife Xtra, Herbal Fiberblend, CoCoa LeafGreens, LeafGreens and Canada Herbal Release. Knowing these six exceptions confirms the vast majority of AIM products are gluten-free.

Being able to identify gluten-free supplements is of utmost importance for the health of people who have gluten-related disorders. For such individuals, consuming gluten—distinctive proteins found in wheat and other grains—can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, including abdominal pain, bloating, poor absorption of food nutrients and diarrhea or constipation. Those with gluten issues can take comfort in knowing that AIM has a substantial lineup of gluten-free products that can help to improve their health.

Certified vegan products contain no animal products or by-products

For anyone following a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, the AIM products that are certified vegan can be easily identified by a logo or vegan indications printed on labels, signifying no presence of animal products or by-products and no testing on animals. This information is essential for vegans and vegetarians to decide which supplements are appropriate for them to take.

Kosher certification indicates the product, process and system comply with the highest kosher standards and regulations

Kosher food laws set a high bar in terms of cleanliness, purity and quality, so people not only of the Jewish faith look for the OK symbol on labels.

The Garden TrioBarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets—as well the BarleyLife powder in the 180-gram canisters and sample packs are certified kosher, and The AIM Companies will continue to expand kosher certifications for those who look for the OK symbol on product labels.

Sport-approved products contain no substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency

The AIM lineup contains three products that are sport approved: Peak Endurance, ProPeas and Red Rush. All three are available individually or as a combination in the Sports Pack. For competitive athletes, enhancing performance with natural products that contain no banned substances is an intelligent choice.

Helping people to make intelligent choices when it comes to their health and lifestyles is a goal for all AIM independent distributors. Use prod­uct certifications wisely to achieve this aim.

Feed Your Brain

The facts speak for themselves: Alzheimer’s disease is a neuro­de­gen­erative condition that affects well over 6 million individuals in Canada and America. Around 1 in 10 people over the age of 65 have Alzheimer’s.

Modern medicine still has no cure for this deadly condition, only drugs that slightly slow down the destruction of nerve cells in the brain, primarily attributed to the buildup of a plaque-forming protein known as beta-amyloid.

AIM certainly does not profess to have a cure, but research indicates that certain nutrients may be beneficial in preventing some purported factors in Alzheimer’s disease.

The Energy Factor

The failure of cells to produce ade­quate levels of adenosine triphospate (ATP)—the energy-carrying molecule—contributes to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s because the brain is particularly susceptible to energy failure over time.

Peak Endurance helps to increase energy by delivering PEAK ATP®, an oral source of ATP clinically proven to elevate levels in blood, cells, tissue and organs.

CellSparc 360 provides supplemental CoQ10 to help prevent ATP depletion. An August 2018 study revealed a list of 126 genes that control the production of cellular energy stored in ATP molecules and determined “CoQ10 supplementation provides gene-specific protection against ATP depletion.” 1

The Blood-Brain Barrier Factor

The brain is protected on the outside by the skull and on the inside by the blood-brain barrier, which prevents damaging substances in the blood from entering the brain.

The brain uses glucose for fuel, but Alzheimer’s inhibits its uptake. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are an alternative source of energy: ketones that can cross the blood-brain barrier even in people with Alzheimer’s disease. 2

AIMega provides brain-energizing ketones from medium-chain trigly­cerides along with plant-based omega-3 and -6 essential fatty acids that maintain the function of cells and structure of their membranes.

The Vision Factor

A 2018 study revealed “a significant link between three degenerative eye diseases—age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma—and Alzheimer’s disease . . . offer physicians a new way to detect  those at higher risk of this disorder.”  3

GinkgoSense contains lutein and zeaxanthin, along with other eye-healthy ingredients that improve circulation to deliver protective nutrients to the eyes.

AIM Nutrition: No Fillers and Fantastic Benefits

Shared by Heather Flannelly, AIM Director

I have taken a lot of health products that I’ve been disappointed with because they contain a lot of fillers. Then in 2016, AIM Star Sapphire Director Kathy Craig asked if I would like to try some AIM products, seeing that I was feeling a bit under the weather.

I noticed right away that AIM products don’t have fillers, and so I started with the Garden Trio and a bit of Peak Endurance. Over time, things started to slowly improve. It’s now 2018, and I have continued to faithfully take all of the products.

I don’t have restless leg syndrome anymore, which, for 40 years, had interfered with my sleep, having to get up every night and walk around. And I no longer have Raynaud’s disease, which I had for 20 years. This is a big improvement because you can lose the tips of your fingers with Raynaud’s.

I also noticed that I didn’t have floaters anymore. My night vision cleared up when I was driving. I had been bothered with rosacea, and there was a big improvement on that. Seeing my doctor on a regular basis, she was really impressed with what had been happening with me physically.

Heather-F

At first I wanted to take the products just for me, but I’d been listening to many people talking to me about their health problems. So I decided to start giving products away, and I noticed that everyone I gave products to was improving.

So now I want to go even further and start to have part of a business on my own selling AIM products because I know they work and I know they’re good for people. And it just makes me feel good when other people’s health is improving too.

By the way, I really enjoy taking Red Rush; it’s nice and smooth and helps my energy levels. There’s no caffeine in it, so there are no spikes to this energy drink. At first, I was taking a third of a bottle daily for a month and then I increased it to half a bottle. My hair had been really thinning, but I now have new hair growth, which is wonderful because I didn’t expect that to happen at all. So Red Rush is one of my favorite products.

Guys and Supplementation

It can be a challenge to convince most guys that supplementing beyond muscle-building protein powder is a good thing. So let’s start there.

If you’re a guy reading this (or if you’re reading this and know a guy), ProPeas is a natural way to supplement protein intake. Building lean muscles, maintaining a healthy weight and boosting a fat-burning metabolism are just a few benefits of pea protein for men of all ages. It’s plant-based, so ProPeas is a healthy alternative to consuming meat.

Beyond supplemental protein, there’s so much more from AIM to support men’s health

Giving Guys a Healthy Helping Hand

Maintaining good health is often something that guys think about after there’s a problem. But proactive men know that eating (and sleeping) well, exercising and supplementing with AIM whole-food concentrates and natural health products contribute to their overall well-being and reduce the risk of many diseases.

AIM for Longevity

After Chairman’s Club Director Keith Thompson began tak­ing AIM products, his sons noticed a big difference in him. By using products such as energy-boosting Peak Endurance, Keith has gone rock climbing with his middle son, impressing people with his ability to make it through the really challenging parts. And he’s gone on 10-mile kayak trips and 22-mile bike rides with his boys. “I couldn’t have done any of this without AIM products,” Keith admitted. “My sons wish that I could have taken them when they were growing up.”

Chairman’s Club Director George McPherson has also been able to maintain an active lifestyle, and younger men and colleagues envy his strength and endurance. “I don’t know where I would be today without the AIM products,” George stated, relating the time many years ago when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Immediate surgery had been recommended. But he decided to opt for naturopathic IV treatments and AIM products, including the Garden Trio and Herbal Fiberblend along with ReAssure SP for prostate health. And to this day, George has never required the surgery.

Almost 30 years ago, Chairman’s Club Director Dr. John Shewfelt began taking BarleyLife, which is his favorite food. John and his wife, Marilyn, along with their kids and grandkids have seen positive health benefits over the years by taking AIM products such as BarleyLife.

For example, at the age of 64, John decided to have a thorough heart examination “to see how the old ticker was doing.” When he went in for the results, the cardiologist told him he had the heart of an ox and that all of his blood vessels were perfectly clear—no plaque buildup. “The cardiologist also said that he knew I used green food nutrition because none of his other patients had such healthy arteries. He had emigrated from Hong Kong, where he used to see healthy arteries all the time because people use green nutrition to stay healthy,” John stated. “When I finally told him about BarleyLife, he said ‘don’t stop using it’ and I never will.”

AIM’s Healthy Nutritional Edge

From a young age, AIM Director Dan Nichols had an unhealthy fear of disease. His father died at the age of 53 from a heart attack and his grandmother had cancer. In 2003, he came across healthy eating and juicing. “I suddenly realized you could fight disease with nutrition,” Dan stated, noting he has also been involved with regular exercise since his teen years.

After meeting AIM Star Sapphire Director Leré Robinson, Dan was introduced to AIM’s juice powders and got to know the heart of AIM. One of his children had allergies that were relieved by taking products recommended by Leré, including Leaf Greens and BarleyLife. For his entire family, BarleyLife would become a daily nutritional supplement. And Dan began a morning routine, taking BarleyLife Xtra, RediBeets and Peak Endurance as well as a daily shake made with ProPeas and fit’ n fiber. With healthy eating and AIM supplements, he and his family continue to “fight disease with nutrition.”

Bruce Crevier, AIM Preferred Member and AIM-sponsored athlete, turned a childhood fascination with basketball spinning into an entertaining show that would eventually take him and his family all across the USA and to over forty countries. Bruce and his wife Diane and their 12 children even performed their “Spin-tacular Basketball Show” on episodes of America’s Got Talent.

For good health, the Creviers had been juicing at home for many years but found it difficult to do when on the road. Finding The AIM Companies™ and whole-food concentrates like the Garden Trio allowed Bruce and his family to continue this healthy routine while traveling. And in 2017, the Creviers became the very first AIM-sponsored group whose demanding performances benefit from Nutrition that Works!

AIM has been in the business of helping people with high-quality supplements since 1982. Many of those individuals are guys who know that AIM nutrition helps to keep them in good health. But there will always be room for more AIM supplement guys.
