Peak Endurance Shared with Team Cow

Shared by Cara Knipp, AIM Group Builder

Established in August 1973 by The Des Moines Register, RAGBRAI has since become the longest, largest and oldest recreational bicycle touring event in the world. It’s like “Woodstock” for cyclists, with over 18,000 riders registered to participate throughout the week of riding and events for RAGBRAI 2017.

The week prior to the festivities, I was fortunate to meet Scott Schoppert from Renner, South Dakota, one of the athletes who was participating in his fifth RAGBRAI. We shared a mutual interest: great health through all-natural, whole food. We have since then discovered we share another mutual interest—The AIM Companies™! Scott plans to become an AIM Wholesale Member as a result of our RAGBRAI experience, purchasing a Starter Pack and some Peak Endurance in his first order.

But wait . . . let’s back up the bike!

The week after I met Scott, I was able to join his Team Cow for three days of RAGBRAI. I pitched a tent with the team and got to share with them about The AIM Companies. I provided Peak Endurance to enhance their RAGBRAI riding experience. They loved it! I provided a pre-exercise concentration in the mornings (even filled some of their “water bottles” before they set out for their daily ride of 45–100 miles) and met them in the next town with a post-workout concentration to help them replenish and re-hydrate. While I waited for their arrival, I set up a display table on neighborhood street corners and offered free samples to hundreds of riders as they passed by. They were grateful . . . and energized. And my puppy Jazz got to tag along as well. We had a fantastic time and made many new friends. We’ll never forget our first RAGBRAI experience and the hospitality shown by Scott and his team. Hopefully they will never forget us and the energizing power of Peak Endurance. Go Team Cow!

The AIM Companies is a network marketing company that has been in business since 1982. They offer whole-food powder concentrates and nutritional supplements including Peak Endurance with Peak ATP®.

Peak ATP® and Why It’s So Great!

The key ingredient in AIM Peak Endurance is PEAK ATP®: a patented form of oral Adenosine TriPhosphate, the energy currency found in every cell. The human body contains roughly 250 grams of ATP. However, as a person ages, less is produced. And for those who actively exercise, ATP is depleted.The key ingredient in AIM Peak Endurance is PEAK ATP®: a patented form of oral Adenosine TriPhosphate, the energy currency found in every cell. The human body contains roughly 250 grams of ATP. However, as a person ages, less is produced. And for those who actively exercise, ATP is depleted.

Since ATP is required for so many activities in the body, including those of the brain, heart, bones, skin and sensory organs and pain pathways, Peak Endurance delivers an additional source of this vital energy currency that benefits people of all ages.

Research has shown that 400 mg of ATP is the ideal amount to take during increased energy demands. The benefits include:

  • Improved blood flow, muscular excitability and performance
  • Reduced muscular fatigue and pain
  • Increased muscle mass, power and recovery

Muscle

A 2013 study showed that working out and taking ATP builds twice as much muscle than exercising without it. For those who experience muscle loss as they age, supplementing with ATP may help to increase muscle mass.

Power

A 2017 study showed that supplementing with 400 mg of ATP significantly increased peak power output during later repeated bouts of exercise. Translation: usually the more bouts of exercise you do the less power you have because you get tired. But ATP actually increased power even with repeated exercise.

Recovery

Increased recovery from muscle soreness from physical activity is a great ben­efit of ATP. But there’s more. A 2014 study showed that ATP also increases recovery after knee surgery, significantly decreasing pain, the need for pain medi­cation and the length of hospital stay. Since ATP improves blood flow, which aids nutrient and oxygen delivery, pain is reduced.

Along with energy-rich ATP, the “power powder” of Peak Endurance provides six B vitamins, six electrolytes and vitamin C. Reach your peak endurance with this tasty, blueberry-açai flavored energy drink.

Peak Endurance is absolutely the best. I drink it for energy but also for elec­trolyte balance, min­­­erals and B vitamins. It gives energy with­out highs and lows and calms the nervous system. It does not ‘excite’ the adrenal glands.”

The Great Wheelbarrow Race

Shared by Nikola Wilkie, AIM Star Sapphire Director

From Chillagoe to Mareeba it’s 139 km and in those parts of Queensland, Australia, it doesn’t rain too often but it did the day before The Great Wheelbarrow Race, an annual fundraiser. Leading out from Chillagoe a long stretch of the road is not sealed and 42 teams of runners negotiated the mud with wheelbarrow in hand for almost a full day.  There’s nothing actually in the wheelbarrow but it’s being pushed for a good cause.  There usually is a good cause behind an insane act like this pushing an empty wheelbarrow for three days.

Over 400 participants pushed to raise money for their chosen charity.  At the end of a hard run of at least a 35 km most went to sleep in their swag on the ground, thankfully there was a clear sky.

I’m not that crazy as to run behind a barrow but I was there to support my team of ten by working on their bodies to keep them able for the next day’s run.  A Recovery Team of six worked on bodies for 6-8 hours using Australian muscle-releasing techniques Bowen and Emmett.  Putting tired feet in a bath of AIM CWR was the first relief, and rubbing AIM Mag-nificence magnesium lotion into legs was very welcome.

Our team were well backed with AIM products.  On board the bus the runners were primed with Red Rush nitric oxide boost at the beginning of the day and kept going with Peak Endurance.  Taylor, my son, was the source of encouragement.  Through his training he knows how valuable the products are for everyone wanting stamina.

The task is to run just 10-15 seconds pushing the wheelbarrow, the driver of the bus toots the horn at the command of the timer, the next runner jumps out of the moving vehicle and takes over pushing.  Of course it is in the teams best interest to keep that barrow moving but taking control of a moving barrow is no easy feat. The first runner then jumps back on board the still moving vehicle and finds a seat whilst the next runner lines up to jump out.

Thanks to AIM Australia’s contribution to us we were able to raise over $2,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Amazing BarleyLife

Shared by Wellington Cheng, AIM Preferred Member

Before retiring at age seventy-four, I worked as a journalist and editor for a Chinese newspaper in the Bay Area for twenty years. I first started taking AIM’s barley product now known as BarleyLife over twenty years ago.

Today, I’m nearly eighty-nine and feel very good.

My very good friend, David, introduced me to BarleyLife. He said to mix it well with juice or water and take it two times a day to maintain good health. I knew he meant well, so I promised him I would try it. Besides barley is a plant, so I thought it would be beneficial for the body.

At that time, I was working long graveyard shifts, going home in the early morning after the newspaper was printed. By taking BarleyLife twice a day, I did not feel tired or exhausted, even though I was already over the age of seventy. Besides drinking barley grass juice twice daily, I ate light, did not smoke or drink and never took any tonics. My health was good.

When I retired in 2002, there were a lot of life changes. I adopted a normal routine without night shifts and had more free time to do whatever I wanted to do, including travel. I could walk just fine and did not feel old at all. To simplify my life, I stopped taking BarleyLife. Within six months, my black hair started turning white, which I thought was age-related.

Now I seldom saw David as he had moved. Then one day, he and his wife came for a visit, and we had lunch together. I told him that I had stopped drinking BarleyLife after retirement and shortly afterward my hair turned white. I wondered if it had something to do with not taking BarleyLife. David said, “If that’s so, you had better drink it again.”

I started drinking BarleyLife again mixed with juice every morning and night. Thirteen years have now passed, and I still have a lot of hair with no increase in white hair but lots of new black hair. Close-up, it looks like salt and pepper hair, only with more pepper than salt!

When my hair turned white, it was a visible sign of the aging process and a very good indication of other damage that may be hidden from view inside of my body that occurred when I stopped taking BarleyLife. I will take BarleyLife for the rest of my life—it has an amazing effect.

The ORGANIC Question

AIM offices around the world frequently receive the question as to whether or not AIM products are organic. The answer is interesting.

AIM products are grown under organic standards. For example, crops of barley grass are cultivated without the use of pes­ticides, herbicides or fungicides and involve other organic practices like crop rotation. As well, some of our ingredients are certified organic such as the seed oils in AIMega.

At the same time, AIM has not pursued organic certifications because it would greatly increase product prices. Besides, there is much more behind the scenes of organic certification.

According to agricultural scientist, Steve Savage, “… surveys of organic conducted by the USDA and by Canadian Food Inspection Agency found un-approved residues in at least 40 percent of samples 1.” In other words, organic certification does not require further testing for chemical residues of pesticides or herbicides.

The difference between an organic product and an AIM product is that once a field has been organically certified, prod­­ucts pro­duced from it are not tested to the standard that we test our products here at AIM. We take quality assurance to a new level, testing for the absence of more than 300 pesticides, herbicides and other chemical residues.

The testing does not end there. We also check for microbiological (bacteria) safety, heavy metals and several other nutritional markers. We also ensure the absence of residual cleaning solvents in over twenty-five different classes. These practices ensure only the highest quality of products for our Members.

Never, Ever Go Off the AIM Products

Shared by Cindy Ponchot, AIM Star Sapphire Director

After being diagnosed with primary peritoneal cancer, I chose a mind-body-spirit approach to healing instead of traditional cancer treatments. After all, I was given only six months to live! Why would I want to be on treatments that induce sickness?

This approach included the AIM products. To my oncologist’s amaze­ment, within three months, I was declared cancer-free—not “in remission” but cancer-free. For over seven years now, I have helped others overcome their health challenges.

Recently, a dear, lifelong friend found that after taking the AIM products for just three weeks, the cancerous tumor in her breast had shrunk significantly. She stated, “I think it was the products.” “Of course, it was!” I answered emphatically.

Shortly after my own healing, one of my oncologists called me and asked if I would help a man who had stomach cancer. He was given four months to live and did not have much of a stomach left. After accepting my help, this gentleman lived another three years cancer-free. But the call did come from his wife, who said, “My husband is dying. He went off the products a while back.”

“His beautiful family credits the AIM products for an extra three years of life with their father.”

I immediately went to see him in his hospital room. We chatted a little, and then he sat up in bed. Looking me in the eye he said, “Cindy, please tell anyone you are helping to never, ever go off the AIM products. I should have never gone off the BarleyLife.” His beautiful family credits the AIM products for an extra three years of life with their father.

Little did I know that after being declared cancer-free, I would be helping other’s find
their way back to better health. The ap­proach I took amazed my doctor so much that he researched and studied complementary treatments to cancer. He really believes in offering others a lifestyle choice that treats and prevents cancer.

Special thanks go to Eli and Barbara Hershberger (AIM Directors) and Charlotte and Keith Thompson (AIM Chairman’s Club Directors) for caring enough to share. They are the reason I am alive today!

FloraFood Saves the Day

Shared by Brenda Ratich, AIM Preferred Member

My son, Tyrel, began having severe abdominal cramps when he was around fourteen years old. I talked to a few parents who said it could be Crohn’s disease, but Tyrel’s medical checkup showed that it wasn’t. Still the problem persisted.

Being a young athlete who played basketball in high school, Tyrel sometimes had to spend an hour or more in the bathroom because of the terrible cramps. To avoid spending so much time in the students’ toilets, he would often sneak into the teachers’ private washroom.

Occasionally, he got caught on the way out by a teacher who would say “You know that’s for teachers only, right?” Tyrel would answer, “I know.” But because of his good rapport with the teachers, they all knew that he must have had a good reason for not following the rule.

Fortunately, Flora­Food was recom­mended to me by Alison Douglas (AIM Director), who even­tually became my sponsor. Within a week or so of taking this probiotic from AIM, Tyrel finally found relief from the painful cramps. It made such a positive difference in my son’s life.

Tyrel’s twenty-two now, so he’s been using FloraFood for around eight years. He is studying at Simon Fraser University, where he recently became an alumnus of the SFU football team.

During his football years as a defensive lineman, Tyrel would have no abdominal cramping as long as he consistently took FloraFood. But every once in a while, he couldn’t be bothered and stopped taking it. His symptoms returned after a week, and then he would start complaining about the cramps.

“Within a week or so of taking this probiotic from AIM, Tyrel finally found relief from the painful cramps. It made such a positive difference in my son’s life.”

I would have to ask him, “Are you taking your FloraFood?” He wasn’t of course. And he couldn’t afford an attack before a football game because he wouldn’t be able to play. As soon as he went back on FloraFood, Tyrel was back in the game!

These days, Tyrel is taking a variety of AIM supplements, including AIMega, Just Carrots and BarleyLife Xtra (because he likes the sweet taste) to boost his nutritional intake. And he won’t be without his FloraFood!
