Fit is the New Thin: Caitlin Lawrence

Shared by Caitlin Lawrence, AIM Preferred Member

I was born at a normal weight but with a big appetite. I remember dieting from an early age without much success. Although my mom was always into health foods and we were notoriously known as “the healthiest family in the neighborhood,” my weight tended to make people to think otherwise.

My mom was introduced to AIM products when I was about 14. She began forcing the whole family take greens and fiber. As a result of the healthy diet and AIM products, my brother and I rarely got sick. When we did have an illness or surgery, our recovery time was much shorter than average, like the time I had to have my stone-filled gallbladder removed.

When I entered university, I lived in residence for two years and my food choices became increasingly worse. I gained weight, became extremely depressed and anxious and did poorly in school. I suffered terribly from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), to the point where I’d have to eat two hours before going out because of the attacks that followed meals.

I finally decided to move back home and attend community college. My first year went well, but my food intake was still unhealthy. My weight ballooned to 230 pounds, and I was extremely unhappy and self-conscious about my body.

I made up my mind that 2013 was the year for me to make a change, so planning for my weight loss and health gain journey began. On April 28, I started Weight Watchers and began exercising five times a week while working full-time at a fast food restaurant. By December, I dropped to 165 pounds but reached a plateau that I struggled to break through.

I decided to try an elimination cleanse that worked dramatically for my mom, who had strug­gled to lose weight her entire life. The main com­ponent was filling your body with beneficial and nutri­tious food. It was at this point in my life that AIM products became vital to my journey.

My weight has fluctuated over the last three years, but three things have remained consistent: my exercise routine, my healthier food choices and the inclusion of the AIM products in my life.

Since I am lactose intolerant, have IBS and don’t have a gallbladder, I am unable to consume milk products and find it difficult to digest fats, particularly those found in deep-fried foods and meat products. I rely on the ProPeas for protein boosters because I do not eat much meat.

I love to start my day with a smoothie that contains ProPeas, fit ’n fiber and CoCoa LeafGreens. I have taken BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend capsules in the evening for the past eight years, but since attending the AIM Celebration in Toronto, I am now taking the Garden Trio in the morning and for lunch instead. I’m looking forward to reaping the benefits of this inclusion.

Other products I rely on include FloraFood and PrepZymes to help absorb and digest fats, AIMega to provide good fats for brain and skin health and Composure to relieve anxiety and depression.

I’m happy to say that I’m maintaining a weight of 140 pounds and haven’t felt better. My IBS and anxiety still like to rear their heads from time to time, but I am able to control them for the most part through a controlled diet that includes AIM products. While losing weight and gaining health are largely based on determination and drive, I can say with certainty that I would not be where I am today without AIM.

My Cells Were Being Well-Fed

Shared by Valerie Pope, AIM Wholesale Member

About 20 years ago, I began taking BarleyLife. I did that for awhile, feeling so much better and having much more energy. I would awake in the morning feeling refreshed. But then I let it go. I did not continue taking it.

As a result of taking massive doses of prednisone over 30 years ago during a pregnancy, which was on top of a blood disease, I was told that at some point I might get diabetes, and it did show up over three years ago.

I started taking BarleyLife again in 2016. I have noticed some incredible changes because my cells were being well fed, trusting God along the way.

God has put another person in my life, an incredible individual who has blessed me with the ability to try some more of the products. One of them is GlucoChrom, which is helping to stabilize my A1C and blood glucose levels.

I have seen remarkable improvements by being better cared for, so much so that I decided to try life without insulin injections around May of 2018. At my last doctor’s appointment, my A1C was the lowest it has been in three years. I’m really happy about this because I do not want to take medication to manage any system in my body. My desire is to use what God created.

I also had a catastrophic event with my left eye almost three years ago. It was called a type of glaucoma attack, wherein I lost most of the vision in that eye. However, at a checkup with my eye specialist around the beginning of the year, I was told that for whatever reason, things are looking better.

It’s amazing how God puts people on your path and in your life over the years. I thank Him and the people who have helped me along the way … that I will continue to see improvements in my health.

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.

The Power of AIM Nutrition

Sometimes life throws a curveball that ends up changing everything. In Alex Garb’s case, life shot a curve-puck at her.

Alex was poised to become the lead goalie on Team Canada’s roller hockey team, a position that she had trained hard for over the years and proved herself worthy of attaining. Three days before the official tryouts at the end of April 2018, Alex was on new roller skates and in the net playing goalie on a men’s team. She’s that good.

While attempting to stop a puck racing toward her, Alex turned her knee in a defensive move but her foot stayed firmly planted. Maybe it was the new skates. The twist movement made her knee pop, injuring her medial collateral ligament (MCL), the band of tissue along the knee’s inner edge that connects the thigh and shin bones.

Unfortunately, Alex couldn’t perform at her usual 100 percent at the tryouts, and she wasn’t chosen to play goalie. Although Alex was offered a player position, she decided to decline the offer to play on Team Canada, which would compete in Italy in July and, for the very first time, not win a medal. Alex knew that she wouldn’t be able to play her best because she needed time to heal.

At the same time, her job as a server made it difficult to fully heal, always being on her feet. “To help get my knee strength back, two weeks after my injury, I started going to physiotherapy—twice a week for a month,” Alex said. After three weeks of combining AIM nutrition and physio, Alex started skating again but not playing goalie. “I thought it would be too dangerous to injure my knee again.”

Upping her in­take of BarleyLife and Frame Essentials helped reduce the pain and increasing her use of the three Mag-nificence products also helped with the healing process. After feeling the positive effects the Mag-nificence topical magnesium in the lotion and spray and CWR in her baths, Alex stated, “I had no idea of the power of this mineral.”

Soon, Alex was back playing as defenseman with a local all-female inline team that she created back in January to grow the sport of roller hockey. In June, the team traveled to California to compete in the North American Roller Hockey Championships (NARCh), where Alex scored a goal and the team took home silver.

The future looks bright for Alex as she continues to get stronger with AIM at her side.

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.

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!
