Anti-Aging AIM Supplements

In the overall anti-aging AIM product lineup, the following four supplements can help turn back the hands of time.

Proancynol 2000

Every time you take a breath, you inhale life-giving oxygen. But breathing also has a death-giving aspect in the form of oxidation. Oxygen loves to steal electrons from stable molecules in your body, turning them into unbalanced free radicals that damage cells, proteins, lipids and DNA. This destruction accumulates and increases over time causing age-related illnesses that include diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer.1 Your main defense against free radical damage is antioxidants.

Proancynol 2000 contains seven antioxidant-providing ingredients: green tea leaf extract, rosemary leaf extract, grape seed extract, N-acetylcysteine, lycopene, alpha-lipoic acid and selenium, delivering an incredible diversity of protective antioxidants. For example, green tea extract is literally loaded with polyphenols2 such as catechins, the benefits of which include preventing cellular damage, protecting neurons and increasing the antioxidant activity of blood. You give your body a wide range of antioxidants from just this single ingredient. So with seven antioxidant-packed ingredients, Proancynol 2000 helps protect you from the damaging and ultimately aging effects of free radicals.

Frame Essentials

Joint pain is an inner sign of aging. Frame Essentials helps to revital­ize aging joints with a combination of interacting ingredients: glucosamine sul­phate, glucosamine hydro­chloride, boswellia extract and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). You can think of them as reparative building material for joints.

The glucosamine sulphate in Frame Essentials may also help prevent one of the most visible effects of the passing of time: skin aging. A 2017 study concluded that “glucosamine sulphate has a positive effect on epidermal and dermal markers associated with age.”3 Support your inner and outer frame against the wear and tear of time with Frame Essentials.

GinkgoSense

As the years go by, time dominated by free radicals can have a damaging effect on sight and thought processes. “Almost every single one of the risk factors we have for macular degeneration can be linked to free radicals,” stated Dr. Lylas Mogk, ophthalmologist and author of Macular Degeneration: The Complete Guide to Saving and Maximizing Your Sight. Age-related memory loss can result from the brain’s susceptibility to free radical damage due to its high rate of oxygen use, high concentration of polyunsaturated fatty acids and relatively low antioxidant capacity.4

GinkgoSense supports eye and brain health with a combination of natural, anti-aging ingredients—ginkgo biloba extract, bilberry fruit, omega-3, lutein and zeaxanthin—that improve blood flow to the brain and eyes and deliver powerful antioxidants that fight free radical damage.

BarleyLife

In 2018, a review article published in the online journal Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity analyzed the nutritional makeup and health benefits of barley grass powder as “the best functional food that provides nutrition and eliminates toxins from cells in human beings.”6

With a natural source of antioxidants, chlorophyll, enzymes, minerals, phytonutrients and vitamins from the juice powder of young barley plants, BarleyLife nourishes the cells with nutrients that repair, build and protect the body. It’s a must for anti-aging nutrition.

There’s even more to explore among AIM’s whole-food concentrates and natural supplements that promote healthy aging. The 2018 AIM Prod­uct Catalog contains them all, and you can find it and more at www.theaimcompanies.com.

Red Rush Powers Sue On!

In April 2018, AIM-Sponsored Athlete Sue Phillips-Leclerc faced another beast . . . the Spartan Beast in New Jersey that is. This means Sue endured over 12 miles and more than 30 obstacles that include climbing ropes and crawling under barbed wire until crossing the finish line.

This is something Sue does for fun: testing her strength, endurance and resolve. In the end, she placed 3rd in her age group in the Spartan Beast. Red Rush is an essential supplement for her intensive training and challenging competitions.

The Beastly Beginning

“I guess I was always big into working out, mostly just going to the gym and lifting weights,” Sue explained. “I was a spin instructor for probably 15 years. And I love the mountains and trail running.”

After Sue entered her first Spartan Beast in Killington, Vermont, she was hooked. Both her husband, John Leclerc, and her daughter, Red Rush Athlete Taylor Witkiewicz, were great motivators because they competed as well.

Mountain Life

Sue and her family live in Plattsburgh, New York, in the Adirondacks, so their virtual backyard contains 46 high-peak mountains. “We spend a lot of time on the trails in the summertime,” Sue said. “Sometimes we’ll go hiking, and I’m religious about taking Red Rush. But occasionally my husband will say, ‘Oh man, I forgot to drink my Red Rush!’ It’s so funny the difference that it makes. It gets the blood flowing and increases stamina.”

Even their 2018 travels took them to high heights and physical challenges: Banff and Jasper in the Canadian Rockies and the 6-Pack of Peaks Challenge™ in Southern California. Red Rush came along for the bumpy ride.

Training Schedule

Sue’s day job as a speech therapist in a public school means that she has an interesting work-week exercise routine. “I get up at 3 a.m. and train for 2 hours, a combination of running and weight training,” Sue stated. Her husband set up a workout room in their garage that she half-jokingly refers to as a torture chamber. “I work out six days a week.”

Her job gives her the summers off to focus on training for upcoming events, such as the August 10 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships and the September 15 Killington “ULTRA”, which is at least 30 miles and double the obstacles of the Beast.

To power Sue on, Red Rush will be her supplement of choice because “Red Rush makes a world of difference for training and competitions.”

Saying Yes! to Opportunity

Sometimes an opportunity comes along in life that “AIMs” you in a healthy direction. Chairman’s Club Directors Hilton and Edna Smith’s initial introduction to such a prospect was a near miss.

The Smiths were first introduced to AIM’s green juice powder by Dr. John Shewfelt, Chairman’s Club Director and chiropractor. They responded with a polite “No, thank you. We have all our vitamins!”

At that point in time, Hilton and Edna were part of a large, family-owned beef feedlot operation. Testing soil and animal feed showed the need for supplementation to provide a balanced ratio of nutrients, so it made sense to supplement their diets too.

“I was a stay-at-home mom with two sons and helped with the farm bookkeep­ing,” Edna recount­ed. “We were always very dependent on weather and market prices. In fact, our future looked very bleak because each year our agricultural business went further into debt.”

The idea of a home-based business really appealed to her, so they enrolled with a network marketing company to use their vitamins and share them with others to make a little cash. “We achieved some measure of success, similar to AIM Director,” Edna explained “but found it very stressful to maintain the high monthly qualifications to keep our status. We saw too many distributors losing their status to ever dream of being successful with that company.”

AIM came back into the picture after Edna witnessed the positive results from her sister’s use of AIM’s barley juice powder while going through radiation treatments. This got Edna’s attention, and she determined to find out more about this powerful green drink and The AIM Companies™ that marketed it. After reading the AIM Member Income Plan, Edna recognized its exciting potential.

“Chairman’s Club and beyond was possible because titles are permanent as long as the membership is kept current,” Edna admitted, “I started to dream about what we could do with the extra income.” She was now sold on AIM but still had to convince Hilton. That happened when her AIM income started to exceed his.

Three years after joining AIM, Hilton resigned from the farming business, which went into receivership a year and a half later. Their AIM income allows them to still reside on their 100-acre farm.

“We shudder every time we think about almost missing the opportunity to make beautiful new friendships, share better health and wealth and experience a financial freedom we never dreamed possible,” Edna stated. “We are so thankful that we had a second chance to say ‘Yes!’ to AIM.”

Meghan Is Victorious!

Shared by Jane Bosman, AIM Director

Our daughter, Lisa, was 20 weeks pregnant when we found out that her baby had a brain cyst. When Meghan was born, she seemed perfectly healthy, and we were all thrilled. But at six months old, Meghan’s right eye continued to cross. In December 2017, an appointment with an optometrist sent our family on a terrifying and prayer-filled journey.

It was deter­mined that Meghan had a detached retina in her right eye and lesions behind both eyes. And the cyst caused a lack of development in the corpus callosum, affecting communication between the left and right side of her brain. Then the infantile spasms began. Thankfully, Meghan re­sponded well to seizure medication.

The eye issues, cyst and spasms were three pieces of a puzzle that confirmed Meghan has an extremely rare genetic disorder: Aicardi syndrome.

In January 2018, Meghan began having aspiration and reflux issues. After being fed, she would arch her back and have screaming fits. She began losing weight. Meghan had bowel movements maybe once a week. We thought a change from liquid to some solid food might help, but it made her choke and turn blue, so Meghan had to be hospitalized for three days.

Two new medications for aspira­tion and reflux were prescribed for Meghan along with instructions to feed her half mixtures of formula and PediaSure®, which has a lot of sugar. I will never forget the day Lisa added AIM nutrition to the mix after I suggested giving Meghan the Garden Trio. She began to thrive.

Meghan seemed to respond well to the BarleyLife after only a few hours, and she began having regular bowel movements. Within a week, the PediaSure® was removed. Then we added ProPeas so that the formula could also be removed because Lisa continued to breastfeed her. In 10 days, Meghan gained almost 2 pounds.

The doctors and thera­pists are thrilled with how Meghan’s little body is thriving. She is now able to “army crawl” anywhere she wants to and able to sit up on her own. Her development is symmetrical even though doctors thought she would not have much use of her left side. She is a MIRACLE and such a JOY.

We have trusted God and continue to trust Him with the future of our little Meghan. And we are so thankful for the answers to prayer that we have received and some of those answers have been in the form of the AIM products.

Meghan’s middle name is Victoria, so we have claimed her to be Victorious Meghan. Psalm 32:7 hangs over her head on her crib: For you are my hiding place; you protect me from trouble. You surround me with songs of VICTORY!

Getting a Nutritional Education

Late August or early September is the time associated with going back to school. Education time. Beyond what is learned from kindergarten through col­lege, parents have the ability to educate their children with an important, long-life lesson: the value of wholesome nutrition. It’s significant because there’s a media marketplace—TV, the internet, smart phones—that sells young people a poor-nutrition road to bad health: fast foods, soft drinks, processed snacks, to name just a few.

Unwholesome Advertising

It’s still an eye-opener to look back at the early days of advertising, when doctors promoted one cigarette brand over another. Have we really come that far since then? Possibly not, when you consider the marketing of so-called food and beverages that study after study show the likelihood for promoting the onset of diseases, such as obesity and diabetes1 as well as cancer2.

Such advertising is still legal and very profitable . . . just not ethical if a company truly cares about the long-term health of consumers and their children. In 2013, Fast Food Facts reported that children and teens remained key audiences by the fast food industry, which spent $4.6 billion to advertise mostly unhealthy products3. Even under all of the marketing pressure, parents can step in and make a difference.

Taste Training

Getting your kids to eat well is a worthwhile task. As a parent, you have the power of providing nutrition, so make choices that create good food habits. For example, introducing a variety of vegetables to young children and “marketing” them in a fun way can shape their taste for healthy foods4.

Introducing AIM nutrition to your children gives them a supplemental advantage for a long, healthy life­time. Kids who crave a glass of BarleyLife or Co­Coa LeafGreens instead of a bag of po­tato chips nurture their physical and mental well-being.

Chairman’s Club Director Sandy Combs has been such an educator since becoming an AIM Member in 1985. Sandy and her husband, Wayne, have six children, 21 grandkids and “a bunch of great-grandkids.” AIM nutrition has been a big part of their lives and the lives touched by Sandy’s help.

“Moms put BarleyLife into baby bottles to help children stay sat­isfied longer,” Sandy explained. “As my grandkids grew, AIM products entered into the school sports scene, fueling winning positions in baseball, softball, football and cheerleading. Championship com­petitions were joined with AIM’s champion products.”

Giving children a nutritional education helps them to graduate with a high degree of good health in life.

A Product by Any Other Name

Member Income Plan Our Most Overlooked

There’s an incredible product that The AIM Companies™ makes available to all Members, but you won’t find it in the product section on the order form. And it’s not something that everyone is going to be interested in, as incredible as it is.

At the same time, it isn’t a product you take or apply to your skin. But when applied to life, it has beneficially changed the lives of many AIM Members and can change the life of anyone who chooses to take advantage of its benefits.

The Member Income Plan

Selling the Member Income Plan is the backbone of AIM network marketing because AIM products are sold by independent distributors, not by retailers. And unlike retail businesses that expand by opening more and more branches, network marketing expands by having more and more independent distributors: AIM Members who believe in and use the AIM products and enjoy the benefits of the Member Income Plan by sharing their knowledge.

At the same time, when Members are selling this income-earning product, it is something they talk about on a need-to-know basis. In other words, AIM independent distributors develop a sense for knowing when it’s the right time to introduce the Member Income Plan.

Some new Members express an interest in an AIM home-based business right from the start while others may take their time to latch on to this opportunity. And then there are those who want to use AIM nutrition only without a side of business. That’s okay. Not everyone is interested, but for those who are, the Member Income Plan is a gift that keeps on giving.

Since 1982, active AIM inde­pendent distributors have earned and been paid regular commissions on an on-time basis. That is just one of the many benefits of being a Member who has shown an interest in the Member Income Plan and followed through by building an AIM business. And The AIM Companies™ will always support each and every Member who shines bright like a diamond.

Race Walking with Red Rush

By Anel Oosthuizen, AIM-Sponsored Athlete in George, WC, South Africa

Life is not measured by the amounts of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away. This has been my motto since I was a little girl in an oversized red T-shirt.

I was born and raised in a small town called George, located in the Western Cape of South Africa. When I began primary school, I used to compete in everything athletic just because I loved sports so much. I even tried shot put, but let’s just say that it just wasn’t meant to be.

My journey as an athlete really began when I was only seven years old, doing short distances. When I was nine, I started doing the middle distances, up to 1200m. I have always enjoyed doing the endurance events more than any other discipline.
I started race walking when I was 10 years old. So much has happened ever since, winning five gold medals at the National School Championships, attaining six South African Senior titles and breaking seven SA records. I’ve been able to travel to 14 countries and compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

Throughout my ed­u­cation and sporting career, I have had an amazing support system. My parents have stood by my side, motivating and supporting me ever since I can remember. I realize every day how privileged I am to have been able to receive this kind of support my entire life. I am now a full-time teacher and athlete, enjoying every bit of juggling this thing called life.

In February 2018, I began using Red Rush beet juice concentrate. As an
endurance athlete, I have to always be ready for competitions. After a month of using Red Rush, I felt more energized and noticed that my recovery time really improved after long, hard training sessions.

The fact that Red Rush is a natural product is a huge bonus. I can truly recommend it to any athlete. Besides, Red Rush is so concentrated, it conveniently fits into small bottles that don’t take up much space in a gym bag.

I give huge thanks to AIM and Red Rush for making my life easier with fast recovery and great nutrition.
