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.

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.

Red Rush for a Positive NO!

Out of breath?

Out of shape?

You need a nitric oxide boost in a bottle.

Red Rush is available in a 12-pack—that’s a dozen single shots of potent pick-me-up performance. The juice of five—count ’em—beets in each 74 ml shot of Red Rush provides 500 mg of vegetable nitrate.

Your body changes nitrate into nitric oxide or NO for short. But that’s a positive NO. Look at what happens to your body when you say YES to NO:

NO  Elevates your physical performance

NO  Boosts your circulation

NO  Maximizes your oxygen utilization

NO  Relaxes your smooth muscle

NO  Enhances your muscle performance

Feel the Red Rush difference in your own physical endurance.

You’ll be energetically pleased!

Red Rush Athlete: Sam Durrant, A Double, Triple-Threat

double-triple

Hailing from Tauranga, New Zealand, Samb Durrant is a double, triple-threat. He’s a triathlete (running, cycling and swimming) and a multi-sporter—a rugged sport similar to triathlon, a combination of running, cycling and kayaking. In high school, Sam was a lifeguard and strong swimmer and biked a lot with his dad, so he decided to give triathlon a try. It was difficult, but he kept at it and is still at it.

His training involves lots of mountain bike sessions at Woodland Mountain Biking Park. He also prepares for runs by simulating the type of race—trail, road, etc.—he’s competing in.

Last year, Sam won the 2016 ITU Cross Triathlon World Championships. The event
was a combination of a 1.5k swim, a 30k mountain bike race and a 10k offroad run. Strong in all three events but an especially adept swimmer, Sam found
himself trailing a single German competitor by the time he hopped onto his bike. About a third of the way through the cycling course, Sam pushed into first place and held that lead all the way until the end. He won by 25 seconds.

“My strategy was simple,” Sam said. “Use my swim strength to my advantage and get as close to the front as I could before going into the mountain bike. The course was technical, so it was hard for people to pass each other. I just tried to stay on my bike and make it through in one piece then hold on for the run! It all went to plan and paid off!” “I used Red Rush for the race and training. It really helped my recovery from hard sessions and allowed me to get the most out of my practice.”

Sam will train and improve and expects to race at the pro level in the next couple of seasons and will defend his world title this year in Canada.

Arterial Stiffness: Your Greatest Indicator of Cognitive Decline

Beet Juice.png
Blood pressure, blood pressure, blood pressure. Commercials, those doctor TV shows, those TV doctor shows, friends, family, real-life doctors, labels on health foods, they are all obsessed with blood pressure. That’s not to say that blood pressure isn’t important (it very much is), but our constant singular focus on blood pressure might cause us to overlook an equally important underlying factor: arterial stiffness.

Arterial stiffness is caused by the aging process and arteriosclerosis. It is dangerous because it forces your heart to beat harder in order to pass blood through stiff, unresponsive veins. As arteries become more rigid, demands on the heart increase, eventually damaging it.

That’s not the only bad that can come from inflexible arteries. A study published in Hypertension found that arterial stiffness was a better indicator of future cognitive decline in healthy people than high blood pressure was. Hypertension has been previously linked to mild cognitive decline and dementia, but by assessing the veins of nearly 600 healthy adults, the researchers were better able to predict which ones were at the greatest risk of developing cognitive decline. Unsurprisingly, those who suffered from both arterial stiffness and high blood pressure were at the greatest risk but that the danger might be more from their adamant arteries.

From the Press Release

“Our study suggests that cognition in hypertensive individuals is more likely related to the underlying functional changes in the arterial structure, rather than simply to the blood pressure level”, adds Hajjar.
What Can Be Done About Arterial Stiffness?

It can be summed up in the two words that nobody likes to hear: Diet and exercise.

Add Red Rush Beet Juice To A Healthy Diet

The cool thing about beet juice is that it slides right into a DASH (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension). Additionally, a study published in Clinical Nutrition Research found that high doses of dietary nitrate (the active ingredient in Red Rush) reduced post-meal arterial stiffness by almost 7 percent and systolic blood pressure by 5.9 mmHg. It improved the baseline indexes of both as well.

And Red Rush Can Help You Exercise!

Exercise has been shown in several studies to improve the health of your veins. There is even evidence that exercise can restore proper vein functioning in formerly sedentary people and/or older adults. Dietary nitrate makes exercise about 10% easier. (Wider, flexible veins boost performance by almost all accounts). This means that Red Rush will not only assist you diet-wise, it can also be employed to give you a kick-start in the exercise department as well.

Improved Blood Flow May Aid Weight Loss

A 2015 study published in Diabetes has shown that dietary nitrate might contribute to weight loss by helping turn sluggish, old white fat into frenetic, energy-burning beige fat. For those of you unfamiliar with the science behind this rainbow-like spectrum of possible fats, most of the current research indicates that weight loss can be stimulated by changing white fat into beige fat. Basically the theory is (explained super non-scientifically) that brown fat which generates heat is easier to burn off when compared to white fat. So when you burn off that brown fat, your body moves white fat to take its place and, therefore, weight loss.

OK. So now you’re in the know. That means it is time to bring up the newest study that I know of published in the Journal of Applied Physiology. Researchers tested to see if improving blood flow to brown fat would increase its activity, so they injected mice with a drug. The drug did not activate the beige fat, but researchers saw an uptick in glucose and calorie consumption by the brown fat and attributed it to the increased blood flow. Researchers plan to look at whether or not providing more blood flow to brown fat can help people with obesity.

Red Rush beet juice contains 500 mg of dietary nitrate in every shot, and dietary nitrate improves blood flow. Improved blood flow makes it easier to exercise. Exercising regularly is one of the key factors of weight loss. So drink Red Rush, improve your blood flow, exercise, lose weight and be happy.

Singing the Praises of Red Rush

We recently received a letter from Preferred Member Ginny Dietrich.  She wanted to share her Red Rush testimony in the form of a song! Enjoy:

“The Red Rush Rap”

by Ginny Dietrich

  • Red Rush! Red Rush!
  • Say, what’s all the fuss?
  • I noticed the commotion
  • But never had a notion
  • Of trying this new drink
  • Didn’t think it was for me
  • Because I am not athlete
  • (Though often on my feet)
  • Because of all my walking
  • My calves would end up tight
  • They’d hinder me from sleeping
  • With their tightness in the night
  • I’m not from Lake Placid
  • But I’ve got that lactic acid
  • A buildup in my calves
  • And believe me, I don’t laugh
  • They ache by end of day
  • When I lay me down to sleep
  • Who would have thought the answer
  • Lies in the humble beet
  • So finally I conceded
  • That what I really needed
  • Was some dietary nitrate
  • ‘Cuz often I am up late!
  • A shot of Red Rush does the job
  • And soon the tightness leaves
  • I fall asleep easily
  • And fall into sweet dreams
  • Oh, Red Rush, Red Rush!
  • Now it is a must!
  • I’ll never be without you,
  • ‘Cuz nothing beets Red Rush!
