With such a wide variety of AIM Nutrition available to Members, sometimes a little direction is needed, especially for those new to AIM. To keep it simple, let’s look at nutrition that is considered to be essential on a daily basis: greens, fiber and essential fatty acids (EFAs). AIM has supplemental options to increase the intake of all three.
Even though the body benefits from the wealth of nutrients in dark, leafy greens, many people don’t like them or simply don’t eat enough. AIM provides four different concentrated greens to choose from, providing an abundance of nutrients in easily absorbed powders.
BarleyLife is a barley grass juice powder concentrate that nurtures whole-body health with a rich source of essentials, such as antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins. Each nutrient is made in balance by nature.
BarleyLife Xtra delivers all of the above along with the powders of eighteen fruit and vegetables that offer additional vitamin C and a sweet taste.
LeafGreens combines the juice powder of barley grass and the powders of five green superfoods, arugula, broccoli sprouts, kale, spinach and Swiss chard, delivering exceptional plant nutrients such as quercetin, kaempferol and sulforaphane.
CoCoa LeafGreens includes the antioxidant and flavonoid benefits of three kinds of cocoas, adding a chocolaty taste to LeafGreens.
Having a well-functioning digestive system is essential for good health. Maintaining a high-fiber intake is vital, but statistics show most people get far less than they need. AIM offers two fiber supplements.
Herbal Fiberblend combines psyllium for soluble and insoluble fiber and a variety of cleansing herbs that detoxify and provide gentle relief of constipation.
fit ’n fiber peach contains six sources of fiber and five botanicals in a daily supplement that increases fiber intake, promotes regularity, aids in satiety and assists with weight management.
Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)
Good health depends on the dietary intake of omega-3 and -6 EFAs, the good fats that the body cannot produce. Most people do not get sufficient amounts.
AIMega delivers encapsulated organic seed oils for a plant source of EFAs, which every cell in the body requires to grow and function optimally.
Greens, fiber and EFAs are essential on a daily basis. Make sure you get yours!

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.
Over the centuries, there has been much debate over the value of dietary fiber. In fact, before the 1970s, it was called crude fiber because it was thought to be unimportant for good health. Since then, fiber has been proven to be an essential part of a healthy diet, but most people don’t get enough.
Not getting enough fiber means you are not cleaning your insides. Without it, waste becomes impacted along the intestinal walls, which can result in any number of health issues.
Along with cleansing and helping to keep your hunger and blood sugar under control, fiber also helps to regulate how your body uses sugar.
As an everyday fiber supplement, fit ’n fiber makes it easy to top up on this essential carbohydrate that your body won’t gain calories from and doesn’t digest. So stay unclogged, sugar-balanced and satiated with help from fit ’n fiber.

Many claim to operate on their gut instinct, meaning they rely less on facts and standard procedure and more on certain mysterious feelings that emanate from the midsection, twinges of instinct or suspicion for example. Although gut-trusting results may vary from gut-owner to gut-owner, there does seem to be a definite connection between the brain and the gut. And several recent studies have illuminated this connection.
A Healthy Gut May Reduce Depression
You’ve probably heard that depression may be caused in part by and/or worsened by inflammation. New evidence published in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics found a link between inflammation that’s related to an unhealthy gut flora and depression.
In other, bigger words: From the Press Release
Persistent low-grade immune-inflammatory processes, oxidative and nitrosative stress, and hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis activation are integral to the pathophysiology of major depressive disorder.
Researchers believe that if the inflammation damage were mitigated then it might reduce depression. It should be noted that inflammation, in general, is also bad.
A Healthy Gut May Stave Off Alzheimer’s Disease
A study out of Sweden found that an unhealthy gut may hasten the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers injected gut bacteria from mice with Alzheimer’s into bacteria-free mice, and those mice developed a significant number of beta-amyloid plaques, a marker of the disease. When the bacteria-free mice where injected with bacteria from Alzheimer’s-free mice, fewer markers appeared, leading researchers to believe that a healthy gut might reduce the appearance of those plaques. The study was published in Nature.
A Healthy Gut May Improve Your Memory and Lessen Anxiety
Researchers in Ireland ran tests on mice to see if probiotics had any effect on memory and anxiety. They saw positive results in the probiotics-fed mice and decided to test on humans. The test subjects (who weren’t in the placebo group) reported a drop in their daily stress and had measurably lower levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) in their bodies. Additionally, volunteers scored higher on memory tests when compared to the placebo group.

According to a study published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, folks with higher levels of of EPA and DHA omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) in their blood tended to have a greater rate of survival when compared to those with the lowest levels.
The study analyzed 6,500 post-menopausal women ( ages 65-80). They had their polyunsaturated fat levels tested in 1996 and their health outcomes were tracked until 2014. Other factors were also measured: smoking and drinking habits, exercise levels, genetic history, etc. By the end of the study, nearly one-third of the women had passed. Scientists put all the information together and were able to say that their “findings support the view that higher EPA and DHA omega-3 levels are associated with better overall health.”
Researchers estimate that it takes only one gram of EPA or DHA to increase PUFA levels from the lowest to the highest. Polyunsaturated fatty acids can be acquired from fish or from seeds that come from plants like flax or sunflower. Making sure that there is an adequate amount in your diet might extend your life, all it takes is a few simple dietary changes and/or regular supplement usage.

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.
