Travel Plans? Stay Healthy!

In North America, summer is on the way. It’s a typical time of year to take a vacation. What’s more, leisure time that involves traveling to familiar, new or exotic places is usually something that most people daydream about and look forward to regardless of the season. It’s all about getting away from it all.

Some people set out on vacation with a drugstore supply of medications just in case they get sick along with any medical prescriptions. Others may have to scramble for medicine if the symptoms of common travel ailments stop them in their tracks. And some cast their fate to the wind and just go. AIM people pack prevention in the form of “Nutrition that Works” to protect their health before, during and after their travels.

Packing AIM Prevention

For any journey, getting there and back in good shape is desired by all who travel. But it doesn’t always work out that way right from day one. For example, if you’re taking public transportation, basically you’re encapsulated with strangers inside your choice of vehicle. Traveling by plane raises the risk of illnesses such as colds or the flu possibly by sharing recirculated air or touching in-flight magazines, contaminated trays and armrests, lavatory door handles, etc. And this can get your journey off to a sick start.

You have a choice to help prevent becoming sick by taking antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 or trying to find cold or flu medicine after getting sick. Members know that increasing levels of antioxidants with Proancynol considerably reduces the risk of illnesses, whether on the ground or up in the air somewhere.

Bring along the healthy gut bacteria in FloraFood to prevent ailments such as traveler’s diarrhea or other stomach bugs or you may have to scramble to find medications to counteract the bad bacteria in your gut after ingesting contaminated food or water. Members are aware that maintaining the population of good bacteria in the gut with FloraFood helps to prevent stomach problems especially while traveling.

And you simply can’t go wrong by packing BarleyLife in lightweight Sample Packs to supplement your nutritional intake with the jam-packed nutrients in barley grass.
If travel is in your plans, pack prevention by packing AIM nutrition.

In the summer of 2017, I packed AIM products for my trip to China, where I competed in the roller games for Team Canada. With all of the traveling, stress and different foods, many of the other participants got sick. Taking supplements such as BarleyLife, FloraFood and Proancynol 2000 kept me healthy.

Happy about AIM BarleyLife

In 2018, Clyde Walters will be ninety years old, and he has a lot to say to others so that they reach their tenth decade and beyond in good health. And it’s primarily about BarleyLife.

“I’m happy about BarleyLife. I can talk about it, and I can argue about it and never lose an argument,” Clyde said matter-of-factly. “I’m a classic example of what it can do for your health if you stick with it. I know people in their fifties who argue that I’d probably have the same good health if I hadn’t taken BarleyLife all these years. I say, ‘You’re not even sixty and you already have one foot in the grave.’ They don’t argue anymore.”

Clyde came across AIM’s juice powder of young barley plants in the early 1980s. “I’ve always had a lot of interest in vitamins and minerals,” Clyde stated, “so I did my studies on barley plants. I kind of analyzed everything AIM had and tried everything. It made sense to me.”

Being a successful car salesman, Clyde also looked at the AIM business angle. “I was fascinated with network marketing,” he explained. “I started selling jars of AIM’s barley grass juice powder and soon had a downline going that turned into a successful business.”

Clyde held seminars in many different cities, including Nashville, Tampa and Orlando, promoting to Star Sapphire Director in 2000. In St. Petersburg, his hometown, he would speak about AIM nutrition in front of crowds of 300–400 people in a church. People know him as the owner of a used car lot: Ace Motors and Garage. Clyde has a solid reputation for being a salesman that you can totally trust. He is not interested in taking advantage of people; he wants to help them.

While in college, Clyde took a good course on mental health that gave him valuable insights on how to accurately read people. After serving four years in the U.S. Navy, he worked for twenty years as a police officer with the St. Petersburg Police Department in the motorcycle division.

As his career in law enforcement drew to a close, Clyde started selling motorcycles in his present-day location. After retiring in 1972, he began selling cars at Ace Motors, a business that has lasted for forty-five years. With about a year left on his dealer’s license, Clyde is considering a second retirement, closing the shop and selling the property. If he does, it will be really difficult for people in the area to find another
Clyde Walters.

When asked about the AIM products that he takes, Clyde said, “I settled down on Proancynol 2000 (two capsules daily for additional antioxidants) and BarleyLife capsules. I take five in the morning and then some more in the afternoon. BarleyLife gives me more energy than any other product I’ve taken ever did.” And you can’t argue about that with him either.

Healthy Aging: What a Concept!

It’s a fact of life that everyone gets older day by day. As the years go by, factors like genetics, lifestyle and nutrition can speed up or slow down the aging process. So what is the definition of healthy aging?

According to a 2006 report by the Swedish National Institute of Public Health, healthy aging is “the process of optimizing opportunities for physical, social and mental health to enable older people to take an active part in society without discrimination and to enjoy an independent and good quality of life.” It’s a good definition, especially the part about “optimizing opportunities.” AIM definitely offers that.

First, as an independent distributor of AIM products, you have the option of earning an income that grows in relation to the amount of time and effort you put into growing your business. These factors allow you to optimize the opportunity presented by the AIM Income Plan.

Second, the products you help to distribute optimize the opportunity to improve people’s health so that they can “enjoy an independent and good quality of life.”

Nutrient-Rich BarleyLife

If anyone wants to age healthily, taking BarleyLife daily can help. It’s a nutritional supplement that can be taken from childhood through senior adulthood. BarleyLife helps maintain well-being because barley grass provides a naturally rich source of nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that every cell in the body can use to help promote optimal health.

Anti-Aging Proancynol 2000

To protect the body from damage caused by unstable molecules called free radicals, Proancynol 2000 delivers an additional wealth of antioxidants in an unparalleled formulation. Dr. Richard Cutler, the former director of the National Institute of Aging, stated that the amount of antioxidants in your body is directly proportional to how long you will live. Top up your antioxidant intake with Proancynol 2000.

Joint-Nourishing Frame Essentials

One of the most common pains of aging is felt in the joints. That’s where Frame Essentials can help make a difference. For relief of joint pain, Frame Essentials offers the anti-inflammatory effects of glucosamine, boswellia and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You don’t have to have creaky, painful joints as you age. Give your frame the essentials for healthy joints: Frame Essentials.

There are many more products in the AIM lineup that promote healthy aging. Check out the product catalog for the entire list.

The Secret Power of LeafGreens and Proancynol 2000

Oxidative stress is associated with disease, weight gain and the aging process. One of the ways that the body fights oxidative stress is with antioxidant enzymes released by the NRF2 pathway. NRF2 is a protein that lies dormant in each cell. Once that protein is activated, it slips into the cell’s nucleus and triggers the defense systems there, releasing very powerful antioxidant enzymes like superoxide dismutase, glutathione and catalase. These enzymes are very effective at destroying the free radicals that cause oxidative stress. If the NRF2 pathway is triggered regularly, it may significantly reduce overall oxidative stress.

High-quality antioxidants do battle with oxidative stress firsthand.

Although there are multiple ways to trigger this pathway, the simplest and most effective is through the foods that we eat. The dietary pathway trigger alpha
lipoic acid is found in spinach, broccoli and tomatoes. Another one, sulforaphane (Biology Redux, 2013) is found in broccoli, cauliflower and kale, and
resveratrol resides in grapes and cranberries. Drinking green tea, intermittent fasting and exercising seem to work, too.

The AIM Companies™ offers three powerful products that activate the NRF2 pathway. Proancynol 2000 contains both alpha lipoic acid and green tea. It also has a selection of other high-quality antioxidants, all of which do battle with oxidative stress firsthand.

Food sources of sulforaphane are extremely potent pathway triggers.

LeafGreens and CoCoa LeafGreens are good food sources of sulforaphane, an extremely potent pathway trigger. These products also contain the antioxidant enzyme glutathione, which is also released by the NRF2 pathway. Although it is hard to absorb dietary glutathione, food sources of glutathione are extremely important to overall glutathione bioavailability. A 2016 study in Biology Redux linked glutathione to a significant reduction in age-related decline.

If you’re looking to lose weight, put the brakes on age-related decline, or just stay as healthy as possible, look no further than the AIM product line. We hold our products to the highest standards of quality and nutrition!

NOTE: Since 1982, The AIM Companies™ (AIM) has been promoting health and providing economic opportunity with an unparalleled product line and a rewarding compensation plan. As a leader in the health and nutrition industry, AIM has pioneered green juice drinks and an assortment of whole-food concentrates while maintaining a consistent income source for its Member distributors.

 

How to Stay Healthy through Life’s Adversities

Bird

Shared by Barbara Bird AIM Director in Brights Grove, Ontario

Here is a little of what I have learned over the years, right up to how AIM helped me stay healthy through 2015: one of the most difficult years of my life.

In June 2006, Rita Vandertil (AIM Star Sapphire Director) convinced me to become an AIM Member even though I had no real health issues. I ordered three each of Herbal Fiberblend and BarleyLife. To be perfectly honest, I did not like them. It took a year to finish the canisters. That is when Rita called me and asked if I wanted more.

Later in 2007, my naturopath told me my digestive system was not working very well. After doing some reading, I learned again that my digestion was not good and then discovered something that would help: barley grass powder. So the stuff I actually disliked turned out to be what I really needed. This is where my journey with AIM truly began.

I took BarleyLife faithfully and began to see amazing changes within weeks. I had more energy, so the need to sleep in the afternoon went away. My sinus problems cleared up, and my constant hunger ended. There were changes in my food choices; I enjoyed vegetables a lot more.

In the following weeks, I found myself asking God what He wanted me to do with my life. A teacher by profession but unable to get on the teacher list, I was not content with being an educational assistant. So I prayed, and that was when Rita called to ask me if I wanted to become an AIM Preferred Member. I sensed the Holy Spirit prompting me to do so and to tell others about BarleyLife.

In 2008, I went to the convention in Norfolk, Virginia, and I learned from AIM Chairman’s Club Director Mary Ann Shearer that cravings for sweet things meant I was not eating enough fruit while cravings for salty, fatty things meant I was not getting enough essential fatty acids.

By now, my husband Richard was regularly taking the Garden Trio. Like me, he noticed that he had more energy. Previously, we both would get sick and have to take time off work. That trend stopped, especially for Richard.

As AIM introduced new products over the years, we began taking more ‘Nutrition that Works!’ such as LeafGreens, which reduced my knee pain and Richard’s allergies. Proancynol 2000 and Red Rush helped us to overcome jet lag on our frequent visits to see family in South Africa.

In December 2013, I watched the AIM webinar by AIM Director Celeste Davis on cleansing in the new year. The key was to create a new default: new habits that you do when stress levels rise. This provided me with healthy habits that I applied throughout 2014.

This lifestyle came in handy as both of our children decided to get married in May 2015: two weddings in the same month! During the months leading up to the weddings, Richard and I never got sick. But what we did not know at the time was that we were at the beginning of an unimaginable journey.

Richard had his regular medical checkup in early April. A lump in his neck required tests, x-rays and scans. In late May, he was diagnosed with melanoma. Richard went through an operation, radiation and chemotherapy, but the cancer had metastasized to his brain. Throughout this ordeal and until the day God took him from this earth to be with Him, Richard looked well and enjoyed quality of life. I, too, maintained my health and continued to take my Garden Trio, Red Rush, PrepZymes, FloraFood and AIMega.

After the trauma and stress of Richard’s illness and death, my body tried very hard to get sick. My throat was sore and I was really tired, but it never went past that. I believe that I had created a new default, a different system to live my life by, and I was giving my body what it needed to stay healthy.

Proancynol 2000: When the Show Must Go On

Proancynol 2000

When you are a professional singer, your livelihood depends on the show going on no matter how you feel. That is a major part of being a performer in the music industry. Georgiann Gibson knows this all too well as a soprano who sings classical music. Even so, there are times when her vocal health is challenged.

One of the health threats to singers like Georgiann is the common cold with its detrimental effects on the voice. However, she has the protection of AIM Proancynol® 2000 to combat vocal enemies.

For Georgiann, Proancynol 2000 delivers a wealth of antioxidants from its seven ingredients, boosting her immune system that protects against invaders, such as free radicals, toxins and viruses.

One of the ingredients is N-acetyl cysteine, a powerful antioxidant that also acts as a mucolytic, having a thinning effect on mucus secretions. “I’ve been using Proancynol 2000 for over nine years now,” Georgiann explained. “I take it to reduce phlegm and eliminate the start of a cold, sore throat, congestion and mucus.”

For prevention, Georgiann takes 2 capsules daily. But when she feels something coming on, she will take up to 9 capsules a day for an entire week. “It literally knocks it right out so that I can go on singing,” she stated. “It’s a miracle!”

In fact, one week before a heavily advertised show, Georgiann got so sick with a bad cold that her voice teacher told her the only way she could perform would be to take steroids. Instead, she upped her intake of Proancynol 2000 and was able to deliver a stellar performance.

When you are a singer with a product as good as Proancynol on your side, you want people to know about it. Georgiann often tells other singers about how well it works for her. “If they are sick, I tell them to step up the amount they take for at least a week,” she said. “For me, it clears out the phlegm, so I can hit the high notes, which come out clearly without any problem. Proancynol 2000 has saved many performances.”

Lycopene May Preserve Post-Menopausal Bone Density

IMG_8865

 

On several dozen occasions, lycopene, our tomato-based friend, has been linked to prostate health and prostate protection in men. And that’s great. Men are grateful to grapefruit, glad for guavas and thankful to tomatoes because of all that beneficial prostate-protecting nutrition they provide.

But just because lycopene is closely associated with men’s health doesn’t mean women can’t benefit from the antioxidant properties of the wonderful carotenoid.

In a recent rat study published in Bone, researchers looked at two groups of female rats without ovaries. One group was given a lycopene supplement while the other rats were not. Those rats that received lycopene had greater bone density than the control group. The lycopene-fed rats also had more estrogen and sex hormones. Researchers believe that these benefits may be due to lycopene’s antioxidant benefits. A 2014 study out of Japan found similar results in regards to bone density.

Lycopene hasn’t been tested on human bone density yet, but you can still enjoy its antioxidant properties. You’ll find lycopene in AIM’s ReAssure SP and Proancynol 2000.
