The Power of Green

"Scientific research has discovered that chlorophyll, the green-colored matter in plants, has almost the exact molecular structure of hemoglobin in human blood. Chlorophyll in the plants we eat helps build healthy blood in humans by supplying the blood with oxygen, nutrients, and phytochemicals, which are compounds in plants that protect our body from illness and disease. Through photosynthesis, plants convert sunshine into chemical energy. Photosynthesis is the process by which plant cells make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll and sunlight.

Many scientists believe that photosynthesis is the most important chemical reaction in nature because man depends upon plants to gather the sunshine energy and make available to use as food. A plant only uses about one-sixth of the sun energy it captures to sustain itself. The remaining five-sixths is stored in chemical bonds, ready for human metabolism to break it down into useful energy. This solar e…

A New Look At Barley Juice

By Jann Abrams, R.N. and Janet Pauly, R.N.

If you're ever on a sinking ship, grab your life jacket first and then your barley juice!

If you are washed up on a deserted island, barley juice is the only food that can supply all your nutritional needs until you are rescued. You may lose a little weight but, for as long as your barley juice lasts, all of your cells will be well-fed and happy.

If you grab your multivitamins instead of your barley juice, you better pray for a quick rescue, because synthetic nutrients can never take the place of a whole food.

"Grasses are a complete life sustaining food. If you had to choose one food for survival, it ought to be grass. After all, grass is the primary food for domestic and wild grazing animals and pretty large ones at that - cows, horses, goats, sheep, buffalo, deer, and giraffes. Guinea pigs, chickens, rats and other laboratory animals were losing weight on our finest vegetables, but quickly reversed their downward trends when switch…

The Story of The AIM Companies™

Friday, July 31, 1981

Nampa, IdahoTwo Nampa Brothers Die in Accident
Two rural Nampa brothers suffocated Thursday evening when they climbed into a truckload of barley and were sucked underneath the grain. Jeff and John Itami, ages eleven and twelve, were the beloved sons of Dennis and Kay Itami, prominent farmers and citizens of Nampa, a close-knit community in southwest Idaho.

Canyon County Chief Coroner Chris Klein said that the accident occurred at approximately 7:00 p.m., while a truckload of barley was being unloaded at the A-Bar-D Cattle Company feedlot south of Nampa. As authorities reconstructed the moments leading up to the tragedy, they determined that the boys probably had climbed onto the truck bed where they were throwing grasshoppers into a trailer load of barley grain and watching the vacuum effect as the rapidly disappearing grain sucked the insects into the chute.

Apparently, one of the boys fell in and the other jumped in to save him. They were both dr…

Yummy Flavored BarleyLife® Xtra

My wife and I have a one year-old baby boy. We love being a mommy and daddy! But our little man is a picky eater. We've tried feeding him a variety of things, but often Brady simply will not eat.

A solution we have found is a whole-food supplement called BarleyLife Xtra. We add a small spoonful of this fruit flavored powder to his water and juice. Now we know our toddler is getting all the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and more his growing body needs.

What The Experts Say

For years the National Institute of Health, the American Cancer Society, the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Pediatrics and other national health associations have emphasized the importance of eating nine to eleven servings of raw fruits and vegetables every day. The health benefits of this include:
Stronger immune systemHigher levels of energyProtection against colds and the fluHelps fight heart disease and cancerAlkalizes the body These benefits are not only due to vitamins and m…

BarleyLife® 101

In 1982, The AIM Companies™ pioneered the use of plants, such as barley, carrots, and beets, to deliver to the body concentrated nutrition.

They developed a way to juice these plants and then air dry them, so that the maximum amounts of nutrients are preserved. It's then made available in the form of veggie capsules or powder that you can mix in juice, for easy consumption.

A good example of concentrated nutrition is BarleyLife®. It takes fifteen pounds of barley grass to make thirteen pounds of juice, which then makes a single pound of powder.

And because it's a food, there are no negative side effects. Your body knows exactly what to do with the nutrients.

BarleyLife® was developed through a process that took place over a period of years.

Dr. Yoshihidi Hagiwara, M.D. was a research pharmacologist. He had developed mercury poisoning, due to experiments in his own pharmaceutical laboratory.

He came to the conclusion many of the synthetic pharmaceuticals he had developed were c…
