Four things you should understand about antioxidants

To understand the value of antioxidants found in many AIM products, it is vital to grasp that they protect you from the negative effects of oxygen. Breathing sustains life but also produces free radicals that attack stable molecules in your body. This can create a chain of imbalance and the spread of cellular damage from oxidative stress, a major factor in health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing the harmful effects of oxidative stress.

Your body produces antioxidants but not enough of these inner—endogenous—antioxidants to offset all the free radicals created from normal metabolic function. An external source—exogenous anti­oxidants—is necessary to prevent cellular damage from oxidative stress. Both internal and external antioxidants are invaluable as “free-radical scavengers” that hunt and tame the bad guys.

Kept in balance, free radicals serve a purpose. For example, your body’s immune cells use free radicals to kill infection-causing bacteria. The key is to have enough antioxidants to help keep free radicals in check. It’s not easy because free radicals are also produced by external factors, including UV rays, pollution, smoking and unhealthy foods. Supplementing wisely with AIM products helps maintain an antioxidant edge, especially as you age.

As the benefits of antioxidants became well-known, some studies concluded that the naturally occurring antioxidants in fruits and vegetables should be the primary source. However, wholesome food can be further supported by taking AIM nutrition that includes whole-food concentrates and Proancynol 2000. Supplementation provides an even wider assortment of antioxidants to help fight destructive free radicals and prevent the ravages of oxidative stress. Your cells are engaged in a daily war; AIM nutrition is a valuable ally in winning that conflict.

4 Things You Should Know About Bilberries

1. Among the many kinds of berries, bilberries have one of the highest concentrations of anthocyanins. Each capsule of AIM GinkgoSense contains 40 mg of bilberry extract standardized to 25 percent antho­cyan­osides, which are super anti­oxidants that help to protect the body by fighting off viruses, infections and in­flam­mation. They have also been found to assist in lowering the risks of some degenerative conditions. A diet rich in anthocyanosides from berries such as bilberries is a great immune-system booster. One of the major benefits of antioxidants is that they neutralize free radicals, helping to prevent or reverse cell damage.

2. Bilberries have great health benefits due to the compounds found inside them, including anthocyanins, resveratrol, vitamin C, vitamin E and ellagic acid. Nutrient-rich bilberry is beneficial for maintaining skin health, cardiovascular fitness, cognitive strength, healthy vision, unobstructed blood flow and improved functioning of the immune system. Research has shown that supplements with 25 percent anthocyanins produce the best health results; AIM GingkoSense meets that standard.

3. Bilberries are in the same family as cranberries, blueberries, huckleberries and lingonberries. Almost black with a hint of blue, bilberries are softer, smaller and darker than blueberries and huckleberries. Of those, only blueberries are classed as a large, commercially cultivated crop. Bil­berries are too soft and juicy to be a highly successful cul­tivated crop even though in their raw form they are considered to be more flavorful than blueberries.

4. The bilberry is a spreading, low-growing, deciduous shrub with slender branches having tiny pinkish blossoms and bright green, oval and pointed leaves. It is found mostly in northern Asia, Europe and in North America because it grows best in moderate temperatures at higher elevations. It first gained popularity in 16th century Europe when herbalists began using it for a variety of ailments. Nonetheless, it was somewhat un­known until World War II, when American and British pilots consuming bilberry jam felt it improved their night vision.

The Many Pros of Proancynol 2000

Your body is under continuous attack by unstable molecules known as free radicals. To fully understand their ill nature, think of them as psychopaths whose only interest is to hurt and kill you. Antioxidants calm these psychotic molecules by giving them what they need: a missing electron. Proancynol 2000 supplements your body’s dependence on protective antioxidants.

It’s not only that Proancynol 2000 delivers a vast variety of antioxidants from only seven ingredients, it’s the fact that all of its antioxidant molecules work even better as a team to protect you from free radical damage to your DNA, cells, fats, proteins, tissues and organs.

Some Proancynol 2000 ingredients take an important step further by working synergistically to help increase levels of possibly the most powerful antioxidant in your body: glutathione.

Glutathione Greatness

Pronounced glue-ta-THIGH-own, it is present in everything alive on Earth, for as stated in the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB): “There are virtually no living organisms on this planet—animal or plant—whose cells don’t contain some glutathione.”1
Mainly produced by the liver and occurring in all cell types, glutathione is primarily made up of three amino acids: glutamate, glycine and cysteine.2 Glutathione supplements alone are ineffective in increasing levels because the body breaks down this glutathione into its three amino acids.

Studies have shown that people with high levels of glutathione have longer life spans and a greater sense of well-being than those with low levels. This king of antioxidants is essential for removing toxins from the body, inhibiting oxidation, preventing the onset of disease and promoting youthfulness.

Unfortunately, youthfulness is com­promised during the aging process because the body begins to produce lower amounts of many essential nutrients, especially glutathione. A number of other factors, such as poor nutrition, environmental toxins and stress, can also contribute to glutathione deficiency.

Proancynol 2000 Boosts Glutathione Production

Supplementing with antioxidant-rich Proancynol 2000 can help to increase the amount of protective glutathione in your body. Three antioxidant ingredients in Proancynol 2000 are particularly beneficial for its production.

  1. Alpha-lipoic acid helps to regenerate glutathione.
  2. N-acetylcysteine increases intracellular glutathione, especially in liver tissue.
  3. Selenium is a vital micronutrient in glutathione peroxidase, an enzyme that reduces free radicals and oxidation in the body.

Increasing glutathione levels in your body is just one of the many pros of Proancynol 2000, so it’s always a good time to go pro with Proancynol 2000!

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.”

The Fountain of Youth Is Filled with CoCoa

IMG_9105

The anti-aging industry rakes in over 260 billion dollars a year worldwide. Annually, Americans shell out nearly 11 billion on cosmetic surgery. Seems like everybody is willing to pay a pretty penny to have some control over the aging process. Ironically, one of the best tried-and-true methods for that is absolutely free. It’s called exercise.  It’s been shown to keep your veins younger and your skin younger, and it’ll help you stave off age-related diseases. It also keeps you fit and trim.

Exercise’s best friend is diet. A balanced diet may actually be more important than exercise in terms of overall health and body composition. However, unlike exercise which you can just go outside and do at any time, food costs a bit of money. Since you have to buy (or possibly hunt, catch, grow or farm) the stuff anyway, you should choose foods that may have natural anti-aging properties, like CoCoa LeafGreens for example.

A recent study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that women who consumed 320 milligrams of cocoa flavanols daily saw decreases in skin roughness and improvements in skin elasticity and facial wrinkles. The researchers believe that the antioxidants found in cocoa were responsible for these benefits.

The study concludes: (Journal of Nutrition)

 

In moderately photo-aged women, regular cocoa flavanol consumption had positive effects on facial wrinkles and elasticity. Cocoa flavanol supplementation may contribute to the prevention of the progression of photo-aging.

The AIM Companies offers CoCoa LeafGreens as part of a healthy diet. Not only does our product contain three types of cocoa, but it also provides the nutritional power of five vegetables: spinach, field pea, faba bean, barley leaf and broccoli sprouts. It’s a potent and tasty way to get your daily antioxidants.

Staying Healthy on Vacation

On Vacation

Traveling has always been one of Donna Eilertsen’s priorities in life. “Basically, I worked hard all my life so that I could afford to travel,” she admitted. “Otherwise, I would have earned just enough to live simply and stay home.”

Home is Vancouver, British Columbia, where Donna has lived for over fifty-three years. During those years, she journeyed to her desired destinations all over the world including Europe, South America, and Asia. When she retired in 2008, Donna had all the time in the world to focus on where to go next. She had dreamed of going to Africa as a little girl and made that dream come true in January 2013.

“I started planning over a year before the plane took off, so I got a great deal on the flight, hotels, and safaris,” Donna explained. Going to Africa also requires a fair amount of vaccinations that must be done well in advance. “I wanted to stay healthy throughout the trip and was concerned about the day-long flight.”

Having struggled with jet lag and colds from flying, Donna read with great interest a testimonial about AIM Proancynol® 2000 in Living Well magazine. Chairman’s Club Director Janet Pauly had taken this natural health product to avoid jet lag and received an unexpected result: She got rid of a persistent cough. Donna decided to buy Proancynol 2000—six months before her trip.

This world traveler became a Preferred Member a month after joining AIM in May 2010. She regularly takes four heart health products— AIM CellSparc 360®, AIMega®,and AIM BarleyLife® capsules. “I brought all of my supplements in capsules along with me on the trip,” Donna stated, having decided to take two Proancynol 2000 every two hours during the twenty-four-hour flight.

Her advance plans for staying healthy throughout her dream-of-a-lifetime trip worked. Traveling and camping out on chilly nights under African skies can negatively affect health. But unlike most of the people she met on safari in Kenya and Tanzania, Donna never got sick. Some of her traveling companions were surprised that she managed to stay healthy, especially since Donna was the retired elder of the group.

Keeping in touch with her new worldwide friends after she returned to Canada in good health, Donna was surprised to find out through e-mails and phone calls that none of them had taken their supplements while on vacation. Back home, each had a terrible cold, so they asked Donna where they could buy the products that had kept her well. “I told them about AIM,” Donna said, “especially Proancynol 2000 for flying.”

Showing no signs of slowing down or fading interest in new adventures, Donna turned seventy in April. In the same month, she confirmed a flight to Bali for January 2014. Her traveling companion to Indonesia asked her to buy extra Proancynol 2000 for the trip. Donna tells everyone about Proancynol 2000 because it works.

The AIM Direction

The day I walked into my doctor’s office after a routine mammogram sixteen years ago, I never thought I would hear her say, “You have breast cancer,” but she did. What a shock as I had been relatively healthy all of my life. That was the start of my journey to regain my health. The doctor sent me to a surgeon, who did a biopsy that confirmed the findings on the mammogram.

The surgeon said I should have surgery to remove the cancer or that he could remove my entire breast. He also advised radiation treatments after the surgery. I didn’t like the sound of any of this, so my husband took me to Princess Margaret Hospital for a second opinion. They said the same thing. I went back to the surgeon again, but God gave me no peace about having surgery and radiation treatments. I felt there had to be something natural I could do, so I prayed.

I am so thankful that God directed me to Edna Smith (AIM Chairman’s Club Director), who prayed with me and told me not to fear but to have faith. She explained that disease thrives in an acidic environment and AIM BarleyLife® is one of the most alkaline foods that you can put into your body.

I started to eat more fruit and vegetables and less meat as well as taking eight tablespoons of BarleyLife a day, two tablespoons at a time. I knew I was getting natural help by taking lots of this green nutrition and drinking fresh carrot juice as well. I also took four AIM Proancynol® 2000 capsules per day as it contains powerful antioxidants that fight disease-causing free radicals. To help clean out my colon, I added AIM Herbal Fiberblend® to my diet. It was good to know that I was cleaning out toxins and old garbage by taking Herbal Fiberblend and building my cells back to health with dietary changes, barley grass juice powder and carrot juice. My energy increased and I started to feel better after a couple of months.

When I went back for another mammogram two years later, there was no sign of cancer. I told my doctor what I had done nutritionally, but she wasn’t interested. I continue to have a yearly mammogram, and they are always clear. I thank God for the direction He gave me.

I am convinced that AIM nutrition is the best on the market, and I am living proof that it works.
