Nola Excels in Pan Pacific Masters

AIM Member Nola Nolte has a healthy life motto: exercise to enjoy a better quality of life and no matter what your health and fitness goals are, proper nutrition is essential.

Nola, who lives on the mid-north New South Wales coast, competed in the Pan Pacific Masters Games on the Gold Coast last November and came home with three medals. The events she participated in were the beach mile, 5k road race, 4k cross country and 10.1k trail run.

Nola has been a Member since 2017 and firmly believes that the AIM products contributed to her athletic success. In the lead up to the Pan Pacific Games, she took plenty of ProPeas, Red Rush and Peak Endurance, and now enjoys CranVerry+, FloraFood and GinkgoSense as part of her daily maintenance regime.

The growth of both athletic participation and the body of research in sport nutrition and exercise science has increased exponentially in 20 years. This evidence-based collection of data has helped athletes fine-tune the art of sport nutrition with results as proof. One nutritious juice that has been investigated by scientists is derived from beetroot.

Beetroot juice contains an active nutrient called nitrate, which assists in pro­longing time to exhaustion and making exercise less tiring. This is called greater energy efficiency and has been shown to work in studies with athletes including the recreational and non-elite athlete subjects.

Studies with beetroot juice show that subjects who drank this beverage had better performance and heart function while exercising.

Nitrates are converted in the body to various other compounds and part of this process involves bacteria found in the mouth and digestive tract.

So how does beetroot juice work? Basically, it doubles the amount of nitrate in the blood and reduces the rate at which muscles use their source of energy, ATP.

Generations of Nutrition

Shared by AIM Directors Heidi and Mike Toft

How many of your family members are AIM nutritional product users? In my family, I love the fact that we have four generations enjoying the AIM products.

My parents intro­duced us to The AIM Companies™ in 1998, when my father was diagnosed with lymphoma. They still promote their favorite products, loving it when people find renewed energy, lowered blood pres­sure and reduced pain.

My 96-year-old grand­mother faithfully takes BarleyLife capsules and ProPeas. When our children reached six months old, they loved having BarleyLife on a spoon with some juice to wash it down. Our son now has his AIM stash at college.

My niece, a senior in a college nursing program, sends me selfies of her espresso and CoCoa Leaf­Greens concoctions. My brother and sister also have their favorites and often share AIM with their friends and coworkers. We are truly an AIM Family!

In addition to the AIM products tasting good and creating positive changes in our health, I believe there are more good reasons why it’s possible for people from 96 all the way down to 6 months to benefit from them.

The purity of the AIM ingredients means a wide range of people can trust what they consume. AIM whole-food powders are safe for the very young. I feel good about products that don’t contain harmful pesticides and herbicides. The gluten-free products mean many of us can enjoy the nutrition we need without uncomfortable side effects.

Another reason AIM supports families is the wealth of available information. When we have ques­tions, we can call our friendly, knowledgeable company reps at any time to get personalized answers. Product datasheets, podcasts, email up­dates, YouTube videos, Chrysalis Networx and the Living Well magazine ensure all Members of the AIM Family have access to product knowledge.

Lastly, I’d like to thank the leadership of AIM for being wise and judicious in their company practices and policies. The average network marketing company survives for only a few years. AIM, how­ever, has been enriching lives since 1982.

The legacy created in our extensive AIM family is not only something to be proud of but also something to pass on to as many people as we can. AIM is a solid, safe, family-friendly company that we can rely on to be there for future generations.

It’s a Stressful World

April 7 of each year marks the celebration of World Health Day. From its inception at the First Health Assembly in 1948 and since taking effect in 1950, the celebration has aimed to create awareness of a specific health theme to highlight an area of concern for the World Health Organization (WHO).

Each year, the theme for World Health Day relates to a current health issue affecting the globe. There seems to be a never-ending supply of health concerns that affect people’s well-being. Whatever the WHO theme, being concerned about maintaining good health is timely any day of the year, anywhere in the world. And one theme that is worth consideration is the rise of stress.

Health-Hazardous Stress

The world is a stressful place to live in these days. Perhaps the increase of psychological tension is a by-product of so-called modern life. With the technological advances in instant com­munication via devices, people are inundated with worldwide, bad news events minute-by-minute during any given day, adding to stress levels.

WebMD.com provides an interesting definition of this health hazard: “stress is the body’s reaction to harmful situations—whether they’re real or perceived.” That last bit is of vital importance because many people experience stress from situations that are taking place only in their minds. Justifiable or not, worrying about what might happen can lead to needlessly disappointing experiences, sleepless nights and ill health.

There’s no way to measure the accumulation of mental and physical damage from stress on human health. But endless causes for concern—remote or personal—that fil­ter through the modern human mind can add up. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Stress that’s left uncheck­ed can con­tribute to many health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes.”

Everyone experiences stress. Some of it can actually be helpful for getting things done or preventing you from getting hurt. But this only works in small doses. Otherwise, you have to find a way to manage stress. Composure is the key.

AIM Composure

Keeping calm and in control under stressful situations means you are able to maintain your composure. But it isn’t always possible when you are feeling overwhelmed. A natural way to get back on track is to take the calming herbs in AIM Composure to help you regain your own.

Planting Seeds of Hope

Shared by Cindy Ponchot-Watson, Star Sapphire Director in Anderson, Indiana

On a cold morning in January, I sat looking at two seed catalogs that were sent to me the very first week after Christmas. “That’s too early for gardening,” some of you may think. However, true gardeners start to dream and plan their gardens while winter snow and ice form on the barren ground. Some even buy their seed at that time.

It was 1996 when someone handed me a book about barley juice and carrot powder. That book, or “seed” as I now call it, saved my life. After reading that book, I vowed that if I ever got cancer, I would refuse traditional treatment.

Twelve years after being given that book, I was diagnosed with incurable cancer. Earlier that spring, AIM Directors Eli and Barbara Hershberger shared a testimony of hope with me. Eli had used the AIM products to improve his health after a perforated bowel. Now the “soil” of my heart was fertile, and I was ready to hear and utilize the information I had received.

It was the AIM products that helped me detox, nourish and rebuild my immune system so that my body could heal itself.

“It’s been 10 years since my doctors said I was cancer free!” Since that time, I’ve planted hundreds of seeds in other’s lives, hoping that when they encounter their own health challenges, they will remember the seeds of HOPE that I planted in them.

I did not intend to build an AIM business as I already owned two businesses when I was told about The AIM Companies™. It was the furthest thing from my mind. But after the products helped improve my health, I had to share what had happened in my life. That’s the best part about AIM, planting seeds of HOPE with others, and waiting to see the harvest.

Don’t be afraid to plant seeds, even when you can’t see if the “soil’s” ready. A harvest will come! I’m living proof of it!

AIM for Your Own Business

CarolynThere is an amazing income level that is possible with AIM because when you are excited about what the products can do for your health, you can’t help but share it. I’ve done this with countless people all around the world. Not only has it put a marvelous income in my life above and beyond anything that I could ever have dreamed about, there are many millionaires among the people in my downline. I don’t really like talking about the financial side because it is really about health, and if you have your health, nothing else matters. But there is an amazing amount of money that comes to you as a result of sharing good health with other people. I’m in the Eight Million Dollar Club, which has totally blown me away.
Carolyn Kling, AIM Chairman’s Club Director

DebraWhen I first started taking AIM products, someone asked me if I wanted to do a business. I said no because I was the manager of a small health club at the time. I didn’t want anything else on my plate. The next thing you know, I’m mixing my BarleyLife up at work, drinking it three times a day, and everybody wanted to know what I was taking. All of a sudden, I’m selling the products. AIM sent me a check one month, so I called them up and told them they made a mistake. That’s when they explained how the marketing (income) plan works. We had been praying for a way for me to stay home with the kids and not have to put them in daycare. Because of my AIM income, I was able to quit my job. Within the first year, I became a Director. It’s been a wonderful way to earn an income and help people to become healthy.
Debra Pugh, AIM Director

PetraAIM has been a great opportunity to have a side business on our farm. We sell AIM products in our store because they tie in with our organic beliefs. I can approach our customers when they come in looking for better food, introducing them to supplemental AIM nutrition. Over the next few years I plan to grow my AIM business even more because there will come a time when farm work will be too hard for my husband and me. My goal is to just do AIM and help people to live healthier lives.

Four things you should understand about antioxidants

To understand the value of antioxidants found in many AIM products, it is vital to grasp that they protect you from the negative effects of oxygen. Breathing sustains life but also produces free radicals that attack stable molecules in your body. This can create a chain of imbalance and the spread of cellular damage from oxidative stress, a major factor in health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, preventing the harmful effects of oxidative stress.

Your body produces antioxidants but not enough of these inner—endogenous—antioxidants to offset all the free radicals created from normal metabolic function. An external source—exogenous anti­oxidants—is necessary to prevent cellular damage from oxidative stress. Both internal and external antioxidants are invaluable as “free-radical scavengers” that hunt and tame the bad guys.

Kept in balance, free radicals serve a purpose. For example, your body’s immune cells use free radicals to kill infection-causing bacteria. The key is to have enough antioxidants to help keep free radicals in check. It’s not easy because free radicals are also produced by external factors, including UV rays, pollution, smoking and unhealthy foods. Supplementing wisely with AIM products helps maintain an antioxidant edge, especially as you age.

As the benefits of antioxidants became well-known, some studies concluded that the naturally occurring antioxidants in fruits and vegetables should be the primary source. However, wholesome food can be further supported by taking AIM nutrition that includes whole-food concentrates and Proancynol 2000. Supplementation provides an even wider assortment of antioxidants to help fight destructive free radicals and prevent the ravages of oxidative stress. Your cells are engaged in a daily war; AIM nutrition is a valuable ally in winning that conflict.

Sleep for Your Microbiome

It is entirely possible that stress gets between your sleep patterns and the health of your microbiome. If the bacterial balance in your gut is off, your response to stress can be off as well, keeping you tossing and turning during the night. And lack of sleep can alter the diversity of bacteria and negatively impact the state of your microbiome. It’s a two-way street that may cause a disease-developing situation.

Dysbiosis

Chronic sleep loss can create an abnormal relationship with your microbiome. This disturbance can lead to dysbiosis, a disruption of balance that studies have shown can cause the onset of a variety of health problems, including gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome and colon cancer.

Your microbiome is made up of all the microorganisms that inhabit your body from the inside out. A good majority of them are the good bacteria that live in your colon, where the largest percentage of your immune system is located. And because these healthy microorganisms are key players in the body system that protects you from infection and disease, it makes sense that your health can be compromised when there is an imbalance between the good and the bad bacteria.

Repopulating the good guys by taking probiotics—supplemental friendly bacteria—and nurturing them with prebiotics, the types of fiber that bacteria feed and thrive on, can restore a healthy balance. And a healthy microbiome helps you to handle stress and sleep much better.

AIM for Your Microbiome

You can help maintain the health of the good guys by taking AIM nutrition that targets the well-being of your microbiome: supplemental friendly bacteria, the food that keeps them healthy and calming herbs that find the off-switch of a stressed-out mind.

Each FloraFood capsule of probiotics contains three billion live cells to repopulate your intestinal tract with the good bacteria that maintain a balanced microbiome … and your health.

Each serving of fit ’n fiber provides 8 grams of prebiotics that feed the good bacteria and further increase their numbers.

Each capsule of Composure provides a variety of natural herbs that can help to combat the stress that may be keeping you awake at night and messing with the relationship you have with your microbiome.
