The Best Day of My Life

The Best Day of My Life

By Lorraine Grove, AIM Group Builder from Camrose, Alberta

My name is Lorraine S. Grove, and I have Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.). I was lying in bed fairly regular; the fatigue was really bad, no energy. My husband was doing all the cleaning, cooking, and laundry, and driving me wherever I wanted to go. I was too tired to do anything.

At this point I wasn’t sure what I was good for anymore. Depression was always around the corner. I could not take the M.S. medication; my body was not accepting it at all. I was on depression medication for many years prior to finding out about having M.S.

Then in January I met a very special lady named Melanie. She was a Member of The AIM Companies™. We got to talking about the health and wellness products, and it sounded very interesting, but I had tried so many different types of health and good-for-you stuff, so I wasn’t too interested at this time. But we did have an enjoyable time visiting.

Don, another person I knew, came by my home three days later with products in hand. “Would I please try these products?” he asked. The sincerity and kindness I saw in his eyes prompted me to say that yes, I would try them one last time. I signed up under Don that day to receive the products wholesale.

I can honestly say that day became the best day of my life. Within two days, I began getting results and feeling stronger. I no longer spend my days in bed watching TV.
First to leave was the heaviness, the fatigue. The walker nwas put back in the basement with the wheelchair. Neither is needed anymore.

Other things started changing as well, too many to put down on paper. A person doesn’t realize how out of whack you are or how truly ill you were until you put good nutrition back into your body. How many people are out there who think their bodies are okay the way they are when all it takes is a little time and effort to make your life even better?

I’m back in the kitchen cooking again. I’m driving my car again and doing my own laundry. My husband is still helping with the heavier stuff in the home, bless his heart. I still tire, but it’s a good tired.

I was only going to buy products for myself. I could not see me doing a business, but things just grow when you share a good thing. I now work two farmers markets, and I help at a third market once in awhile.

I have been taking these products for seven months now and have 19 people under me. When the word just gets around that the products are truly amazing, only great things can happen. The products I started on that changed my life: AIM BarleyLife®, AIM Just Carrots®, AIM RediBeets® (AIM Garden Trio®) AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, AIM Herbal Release®, and AIMega®.

5 Nutritional Strategies for Knee Pain

5NutrStrat

The greatest danger to your knees is simply using your knees–as one does–for years and years and years.  According to WebMD, there’s a 33% chance that if you’re at the doctor, you’re there because your knee hurts. The majority of knee problems are caused by osteoarthritis, a condition brought about by wear and tear.  Athletes, the overweight, women, rheumatoid arthritis sufferers and the elderly are those people at the greatest risk of suffering this kind of knee pain.

One of the simplest ways of reducing knee pain is by losing weight.  A study in Arthritis and Rheumatism found that for every pound lost, it reduced four pounds of stress on the knees.  In other good news, exercise that helps strengthen muscles around the knees can also reduce pain. Additionally, there are several nutritional strategies that can help alleviate knee pain.  Here are some.

  1. Glucosamine and MSM

Several studies have shown that glucosamine and MSM fight osteoarthritis pain by reducing inflammation.  A study published in Clinical Drug Investigations concluded that:

From the abstract:

Glu, MSM and their combination produced an analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect in osteoarthritis. Combination therapy showed better efficacy in reducing pain and swelling and in improving the functional ability of joints than the individual agents. All the treatments were well tolerated. The onset of analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity was found to be more rapid with the combination than with Glu. It can be concluded that the combination of MSM with Glu provides better and more rapid improvement in patients with osteoarthritis.

      2. Vitamin K

In 2009 study from the Journal of Orthopaedic Science, researchers found a link between low levels of vitamin K and the development of knee osteoarthritis.

3. Choose Anti-Inflammatory Foods

Increased inflammation can lead to increased pain. So you’ll want to stay away from inflammatory foods: trans fats, sugar, red meat, refined carbohydrates and the like.  Instead, choose anti-inflammatory foods like leafy green vegetables, fruits, nuts and fish.

    4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids 

Not only have Omega-3 fatty acids been shown to reduce inflammation, but low levels of omega-3’s have been linked to the development of osteoarthritis in animal studies.

  5. Vitamin D

A study on 400 people with osteoarthritis found that subjects who had low levels of vitamin D had more than a 50% chance of their condition worsening when compared to those who had healthy vitamin-D levels.

Red Rush for the Ages

1468816_1444113745836200_2239456597275713696_n

By now, every AIM Member is aware of the athletic benefits of beet juice. We all know that Red Rush provides a boost of much needed stamina to competitive athletes and helps them recover quickly from their grueling workouts. However, the athletic benefits are just the beginning. Did you know that there have been over sixteen studies that have shown that beet juice can lower blood pressure? The most recent one found that the blood pressure benefits of daily beet juice consumption lasted for two weeks after the subjects stopped drinking the juice.

Our veins can become damaged by a sedentary lifestyle, the aging process and by poor dietary choices. This damage disrupts the body’s ability to create nitric oxide. In fact, the inability to produce sufficient amounts of nitric oxide is the main feature of endothelial dysfunction. Red Rush provides the body with 500 mg of dietary nitrate, the building blocks of nitric oxide. To put that amount in perspective, the average American gets 60- 120 mg of dietary nitrate a day. Someone on the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension Diet consumes 500-660 mg. One tiny shot of Red Rush provides you with your daily dose of therapeutic dietary nitrate. Red Rush may also provide these other benefits:

Lowers Blood Pressure
In a recent study, participants who drank beet juice saw an 8/4 mmHg reduction in blood pressure, a 20 percent improvement in blood vessel dilation and a 10 percent reduction in arterial stiffness.

Improves Cognitive Functioning
Improved cranial blood flow has been linked to enhanced cognitive functioning and quicker reaction times. Drinking beet juice to improve blood flow to the brain is also being researched as a way to mitigate the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s

Assists with Basic Mobility
One study found that beet juice consumption made walking twelve percent easier, and recently, scientists at Kansas State University have been giving beet juice to heart failure patients in order to help get them mobile again, a critical factor of their recoveries.

Sleep
Nitric oxide facilitates sleep, and due to improved blood flow, it may assist the brain in achieving essential rapid eye movement (REM) sleep.

Warmer, Healthier Skin
Healthy circulation improves skin quality and keeps the extremities nice and warm.

Nutrient Delivery
When the circulatory system is working well, the body can repair itself faster by moving white blood cells, nutrients, medicine and platelets to the affected areas.

Sexual Health
Nearly 90 percent of erectile dysfunction can be linked to poor circulation, and there is some evidence that a percentage of female sexual dysfunction is related to improper blood flow.

Jet Lag
When the cabin pressure lowers, so does the oxygen in your blood. Beet juice has been shown to improve oxygen utilization, allowing people to get more use out of less oxygen.

Weight Loss
Nitric oxide may help improve metabolic rates, and a surprising study found that dietary nitrate could help change white fat into the
easier-to-burn brown fat.

Energy
Having sufficient amounts of nitric oxide can really energize the body. Additionally, one of the biggest symptoms of poor circulation is fatigue. Red Rush can provide natural energy.

GinkgoSense Is a Smart Move

Ginkgosense

Women, you know that keeping your senses about you in a chaotic world is a challenge. It would be great to have supplemental brain power at your fingertips. From the time you’re young enough to collect thoughts right on through the more mature stages of life, you are bombarded with too much information. Time can take a toll on a jam-packed memory. Taking AIM GinkgoSense can help a lady to stay smart and sharp in spite of it all.

GingkoSense is about improving circulation through- out the body, and optimal blood flow is vital for the brain. Your brain is at the center of all body activities, whether thoughtless—balancing, breathing, digesting, etc.—or thoughtful, such as trying to remember the name of that movie actress starring in that film you enjoyed but can’t remember the title of either.

Your brain is hard at work all the time, even while you sleep so it requires an awful lot of cellular energy, which, of course, comes from your nutritional intake. And it gets to the brain via blood circulation which GinkgoSense enhances with its blend of ginkgo biloba, bilberry, marigold extracts and DHA. It is very important to carefully think about the kind of nutrition you circulate to your brain. Is yours a French-fried, cake-headed, soda-drenched burger brain or a whole-food nourished mind? It makes a huge nutritional difference to your control center, let alone the rest of your body.

The main ingredient of the GinkgoSense formula comes from the leaves of the ginkgo biloba tree, the standardized extract of which contributes a circulatory boost that can improve brain function, memory, concentration, and overall mental clarity. Just what a woman needs in a demanding world.

P.S. You can tell the guys it will work for them just as well.

BarleyLife Keeps You Strong and Healthy

BarleyLife Pics

Ever since The AIM Companies™ introduced the juice powder of barley grass back in 1982, the world as we know it was given the gift of health. Those who have made AIM BarleyLife® a daily part of their nutritional intake know it keeps them strong and healthy. For everyone else, it’s time to get on board the BarleyLife health insurance plan.

The key to BarleyLife’s effectiveness is that it is first and foremost organic in nature, just like people. We are not synthesized in laboratories like so many synthetic supplements, including vitamins, minerals, etc. People are natural and respond exceedingly well to the rich, natural source of nutrients in BarleyLife: vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, antioxidants, phytonutrients and enzymes.

It’s a fact: cattle that graze on grass grow strong and healthy. But people can’t chew on blades of grass and expect the same results. That’s why AIM extracts all of the nutritional wealth from barley grass to make it bioavailable for people in a juice powder. These incredible greens are easily absorbed, providing an unparalleled concentration of natural nutrients for the body to build healthy cells—the foundation of strength and health.

For those who still cannot wrap their minds around drinking grass in a glass, BarleyLife comes in capsules as well. That means there is no excuse for not taking BarleyLife to keep you strong and healthy.

Almost Ninety Percent of Americans Aren’t Eating Their Veggies

Lere 17

According to the Centers for Disease Control and NBC News, eighty-seven percent of Americans don’t get their recommended daily allowance of vegetables, and seventy-five percent don’t get enough fruit.  It is recommended that adults eat two or three servings of vegetables per day and one to two cups of fruit; however, many Americans consume less than a cup of fruit and less than two cups of vegetables each day.

The health benefits of vegetables are well documented.  People who eat the recommended five servings of fruits and veggies lower their risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes as well as many other illnesses according to numerous studies. A 2014 paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that people who ate seven or more servings of vegetables were 42% less likely to die from any cause than those who ate only one serving.  So why aren’t people eating their vegetables regularly?

From NBC:

“People perceive vegetables as being difficult to manage,” she said. “Start with expensive. There’s a lot of waste. They have to be peeled. They have to be washed. They have to be cut. They aren’t as filling as junkier foods. The barriers are real.” –Marion Nestle, Nutrition Professor NYU

The AIM Companies offers wholefood nutrition in the form of vegetable juice concentrates like BarleyLife, RediBeets and Just Carrots to name a few. These concentrates contain almost all the benefits of raw vegetables without the waste, the cleaning, the cutting, the peeling or the hassle. They also have a longer shelf life. The per-serving cost of AIM products makes them more affordable than regular vegetables, and by combining any of our vegetables juices with ProPeas pea protein (another vegetable product), they’re just as filling if not more so than those junkier foods.  AIM products also contain very few calories, and can help improve your daily nutrient portfolio without having to significantly increase your calorie load.

Vegetables don’t have to be difficult to manage. The AIM Companies makes it easy!
