To Blog or Not to Blog

In the movie, Contagion, Elliot Gould’s character provides a dismissive view of blogs when he says, “Blogging is not writing. It’s graffiti with punctuation.”

Here at the BarleyLife Blog, it is hoped that the words that have appeared here over the years have moved beyond this negative perspective of unasked for spray-painted designs and have been punctuated by some wishfully interesting articles and useful information. This has always been the goal.

The thing about blogs is that they have a short shelf life. Blogs are custom built in the internet age of instant information and on to the next thing. Unlike graffiti, not a lot of blogs stick to anybody’s wall. It’s a case of read and move on.

That’s why this blog is going to be a little different. It’s going to be a trip down the memory lane of BarleyLife blogs, which could be seen as AIM blowing its own blog horn or simply as an easy way to refocus on some of the good stuff that may have gotten away.

The BarleyLife Blog Past

 Personal Successes and Healthy Cells

Right off the bat, the best way to go on about the benefits of BarleyLife is to hear from some of the many people who have been helped. Here are some personal “Reflections on BarleyLife.”

The Healthy Cell Concept has always been front and center in the AIM belief system because healthy cells are the goal of a healthy lifestyle that includes AIM Nutrition that works! The blog “Healthy Cells” revisits this concept

Behind the Curtain and Improvements

It’s always interesting to have an idea of what goes into making high-quality supplements, so have a look “Behind the Scenes at AIM.”

Through the years of AIM’s existence, improvements are always aimed for however naturally possible. Here’s a blog example in “BarleyLife Now with More Chlorophyll.”

Drinks Are on Us

Going back to December 2014 adds a little fizz for a blog from the past. With the “5 Reasons to Quit Drinking Soda” there’s lots of evidence to avoid drinking these intentionally pleasant, fizzy, sugar-filled beverages that just aren’t good for you.

Sport drinks continue to be marketed, but none match AIM Peak Endurance. And “5 Reasons Why Peak Endurance Is Better Than Regular Sports Drinks” from February 2015 explains it all. (By the way, an improvement to Peak Endurance provides 200 mg of ATP per serving.)

Some Essentials

What are the essential fats that every body needs daily? The answer lies in “Who Needs Fatty Acids?

The essentials of understanding and combating joint issues are addressed in “The Essentials of Frame Essentials.” Each ingredient is examined for its beneficial properties that promote healthy joints.

Questions?

People have a lot of questions about natural health products, and AIM Members are no exception as seen in this Q & A blog.

One question that keeps being asked is an organic one, so a blog was written to answer “The Organic Question.”

Let’s Make It Personal

Along with questions, people have many stories about how they became AIM Members. Here’s one of those tales that became a blog.

As previously mentioned, a blog of words only goes so far, and it continues to be true that “Actions Speak Louder than Words” even though it’s in a blog.

Looking at and into Supplements

The supplemental choices available also require a question as to how natural they actually are, and AIM gets to the heart of the matter in “Supplements . . . Natural or Synthetic?

Not everyone agrees that supplements are beneficial. Opinions on both sides of the argument have been going on for years. AIM decided that it was a good time for a blog about making a case for supplements.

Doctor’s Orders

The medical community is slowly but surely wrapping its mind around the vital importance of nutrition, especially regarding a diet that reduces meat intake. Some of the doctors at the forefront of this movement in the right direction are revealed in the “Going Plant-Based” blog.

Here’s a suggestion from Dr. Michael Greger that we recommend you try only at home, “Testing Your pH with Purple Cabbage” or you can use the less colorful but effective AIM pH test strips (blog coming soon , , , or not).

Healthy or Not?

The subject of wheat grew exponentially when a heart doctor associated its intake with growing bellies. Borrowing from Shakespeare once again, “To Wheat or Not to Wheat” that is the question.

 Some people consider sleep to be a waste of time, trying to snooze as little as possible to get the most out of their daily hours. Hmm . . . probably of case of “You Snooze You Lose” syndrome . . . .worth blogging about no less.

___________________________________________________

Of course, there’s more graffiti to choose from but the final link in this blog is to the most recent one with the archive to the side. Thanks for reading up to this point. Now move on.

The Beet Transition

Life includes any number of transitions over the course of time. The same can be said for AIM when you take a look at its 36-year history. One of the transitional changes common to any successful company is the introduction of new products. But the truth is that Members determine both the longevity of a product’s availability and what AIM continues to sell in the long run.

Red Rush Transition to RediBeets

Red Rush beet juice concentrate was added to the AIM product lineup four years ago, and it has been an amazing ride introducing AIM products to a new demographic of AIM Members. However, Red Rush will no longer be available around mid-2019 or earlier depending on current inventory. RediBeets can provide the same benefits with a larger serving size and lower shipping costs for Members. RediBeets was introduced over 25 years ago, and even after the introduction of Red Rush, RediBeets sales soared.

The Weight of Comparison

Just like Red Rush, AIM’s RediBeets provides an in­cre­dible source of veg­e­table nitrate. The body con­verts this nitrate into nitric oxide, a molecule that relaxes arteries for better circulation, lowers blood pressure and de­creases fatigue, just to name a few of its unique benefits. We have created a new RediBeets serving suggestion. For athletes, mix 4 teaspoons (16 grams) with 6 to 10 ounces of water. Take once daily, one to two hours prior to an activity.

When it comes to com­paring shipping and serving costs of RediBeets and Red Rush, you get a clearer un­­der­standing of why AIM RediBeets sales continue to climb.

RB-RR-chart-compare.jpg

In the end, Members purchase products that suit them best in terms of benefits and costs involved in receiving those benefits. For those of you who have built a downline with Red Rush, we want to help you transition them to RediBeets. Over the next several months, we will supply additional information and advice that will help. If you love Red Rush, we encourage you to try RediBeets at the new athlete serving size of 4 teaspoons and tell us what you think.

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.
