"I'm sorry, but I have bad news."
He paused, then looked at my father.
"You have cancer."
In high school my dad had been an athlete, an All-American football player.
Now he was sick. Very, very sick.
He had difficulty breathing and was on oxygen. For eight years he needed a machine to help him breathe.
No longer able to work, my father STRUGGLED to do the things you and I take for granted, such as getting out of a chair or going to the bathroom.
What frustrated him the most was not being able to play with his grandchildren.
Eventually, he could not make it up the stairs to his bedroom, so he slept downstairs on the den couch.
Before too long, they replaced the couch with a hospital bed. A Hospice nurse was there now too.
One day Mom was in the kitchen. All of a sudden, she heard Dad GASPING for air.
She ran into the den and saw him STARING at the ceiling. She yelled, "Breathe, Paul! BREATHE!"
The next thing she knew, my dad was gone.
Early that evening, I received a phone call from my mother. "I guess you know why I'm calling."
"Why?" I replied, though I already knew the answer.
"Your father has passed away."
After I saw what happened to my dad, who suffered for eight miserable years, I thought to myself, "I don't want to end up like that."
So I began to read and study about health and nutrition.
I was SHOCKED to discover, according to recent statistics, 7 out of 10 people will die of heart disease, cancer or stroke.
You may be one of them.
Will you beat the odds?
How I Discovered Nutrition Matters
By the time she was seventy-five years old, Mrs. Gravely had several diseases that often go along with advanced years.
In fact, her health was so bad, her family considered getting a full-time nurse.
Then one day a friend educated her about health and nutrition. So Mrs. Gravely changed her diet and added BarleyLife® to her daily routine.
Gradually, she turned her health around - and never did get that nurse.
Today she is ninety-eight years old and still going strong. This is her story.
Janice Gravely is a graduate of UCLA and an international speaker. She is author of the book, "Won't Somebody Help Me!", a biography of how she miraculously crash landed, after her husband died at the controls of their airplane - one she did not know how to fly. Her story was heard on Paul Harvey and published in Reader's Digest, Guideposts, and numerous other publications.

How My Wife Discovered Nutrition Matters
In 1991, through a routine eye exam, my wife discovered she was nearsighted. She had to wear glasses to drive a car, go to a movie or watch a ball game.
A few years later, after we were married, Laura started juicing and taking BarleyLife®.
When she took off her glasses, to her surprise, she could perfectly see.
It’s been twenty years now and she still does not need to wear glasses.
Do You Believe Nutrition Matters?
Do you believe the way you look and feel the last twenty to fifty years of your life, depends on your lifestyle, as well as the nutrition you consume throughout your entire life?
Are you doing everything you can to avoid being sick when you get older?
Mickey Mantle, the Hall of Fame center fielder for the New York Yankees, once said, "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself."
Are you going to survive or thrive in your older years?
Will you be another health statistic?

Q: Will it work for me? I don't know if BarleyLife® Xtra will work for you or not, but what if it does?
What if it works for you the way it has for me and my family?
That's why I say, No Promises, No Problems. Since you're unique, I have no idea how concentrated nutrition will work for you.
The only way to know how anything will work is for you to try it.
Q: My family already takes multivitamins. Why do we need BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra is real food.
On the other hand, most multivitamins are essentially useless and even unhealthy, because they're synthetic (made in a laboratory).
"Your body isn't designed to take synthetic vitamins, regards them as toxins, and attempts to eliminate them as rapidly as possible. They speed up the aging process, rob your body of energy and provide expensive color to your urine."
- Dr. Joel Robbins, M.D.
Why would anyone waste their money on synthetic vitamins, if they knew they could be doing much more harm than good?
Note: If you prefer to buy cheap multivitamins from a big box store or grocery chain, then BarleyLife® Xtra is probably not for you.
Q: How do they make BarleyLife® Xtra? It's made by taking nutrient-rich plants like barley grass, carrots and broccoli and juicing them. It's then made into a powder.
When consumed, the nutrients are absorbed into your body as if you had eaten the fruits and vegetables whole.
Over the years, numerous green drinks have flooded the marketplace, often labeled "green super foods."
They're nothing more than milled grass or finely ground dried grass, which is CHEAP to make, has minimal nutrients, and a high profit margin.
It’s the equivalent to drinking yard grass clippings.
On the other hand, thirty-seven years have been invested into perfecting the process of making BarleyLife® Xtra, including cutting, juicing, spray-drying, and vacuum-sealing the young barley plants, within minutes after they are harvested.
This is what separates BarleyLife® Xtra from the Amazon, eBay and grocery store cheapies.
When giving BarleyLife® Xtra to our young son, we mix it with apple and white grape juice in a blender bottle, along with purified water.
When I take BarleyLife® Xtra, I use a spoon and swallow it with water.
You can also mix it in a glass of water or a mixer bottle and drink it as a juice.
Update: Our son, Brady, is twelve years old now and no longer uses juice to take his BarleyLife® Xtra. He now puts the green powder on a spoon, swishes it around in his mouth with water, and swallows it.
Q: Is there any fiber in BarleyLife® Xtra? No. Most supplements contain fiber because it's a cheap filler. You end up getting less of the expensive ingredients (vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, etc.)
On the other hand, because BarleyLife® Xtra does not have fillers, you're getting nothing but concentrated nutrition.
BarleyLife® Xtra also does not contain pesticides, food coloring, processed sugar, synthetic stabilizers, starch, gluten, soy, wheat, corn, binders, or filler. There are no preservatives or other toxic additives.
Q: Why is BarleyLife® Xtra green? It's green because it has a lot of chlorophyll, a super-nutrient that:
- Helps reduce body odor
- Cleanses your blood
- Detoxes your liver
- Cuts excess cholesterol, triglycerides and other blood lipids (fats)
- Has antioxidant (cancer fighters) properties
- Removes toxins from your body
- Helps with digestion
- Has wound-healing properties
- Strengthens your immune system
- Fights disease and more
Increased oxygen is beneficial for healthy red blood cells, breathing conditions, brain fogginess and more.
Q: What age groups can take BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra is good for everyone, from babies to teens to adults. Babies as young as two days old have been started on BarleyLife® Xtra (by dropper or tiny amount dry in their mouth).
We added a small amount to the bottled breast milk of our son, when he was only a few days old.
"These fruits and veggies are found in BarleyLife Xtra!"
Q: Do you have a list of all the ingredients in BarleyLife® Xtra? Juice powder of young barley plants, oligodextrin, apple juice solids, acerola cherry, stevia, fructooligosaccaride (chicory), natural cream flavor, cherry, malic acid, guar gum, natural apple flavor, brown rice, broccoli, carrot, natural cherry flavor, cranberry, grape, lemon, lime, orange, pineapple, raspberry, strawberry, tomato, kale and kelp.
Q: Is there any scientific proof that BarleyLife® Xtra works? Research shows almost every single vitamin and mineral of value to human nutrition is in BarleyLife® Xtra. Following are five quick examples:
- A study at John Hopkins Medical University found beta-carotene (Vitamin A) helps prevent cancer. These researchers say people who often eat green leafy vegetables have a much lower chance of getting cancer. Deep green, leafy vegetables are high in beta-carotene. BarleyLife® Xtra is extremely high in beta-carotene. It has 2½ times the beta carotene found in the same weight of raw carrots and twenty-five times that found in an equivalent weight of raw broccoli.
- Another study found there are over a thousand different live enzymes in BarleyLife® Xtra. One of those enzymes is super oxide dismutase (SOD). The aging process has been directly linked to decreasing amounts of the SOD enzyme in the body. They've also discovered by increasing the amount of SOD in your system, the body repairs itself more quickly, has less inflammation and acts as a preventive of cancer.
- Another enzyme found in BarleyLife® Xtra is P4D1. In laboratory tests, the P4D1 enzyme has been shown to eat the protein sheath off of cancer cells, allowing white blood cells to attack. One factor of whether or not a person develops clinical cancer depends on the ability of their immune system to destroy cancer cells.
- Yet another study by Cambridge researchers showed the likelihood of children developing asthma is significantly reduced by a diet high in antioxidants (cancer fighters). BarleyLife® Xtra is loaded with antioxidants.
- Finally, Indiana University School of Medicine at Ball State University conducted a study using thirty-two students. They wanted to determine whether or not the barley grass plant could strengthen the immune system. After seventy-one days, blood was drawn from each participant. It showed the immune system was statistically strengthened in the students and their immune systems had become stronger than at the beginning of the study.
Q: How long have you been taking BarleyLife® Xtra? I've been using BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra for over twenty years.
It all started when I saw what happened to my friend, Janice Gravely, who turned her health around by changing her diet and using BarleyLife® as well as other AIM supplements.
Then my wife started taking BarleyLife® after we were married. About a year later, she was surprised when she no longer needed to wear glasses.
Laura also took BarleyLife® during her pregnancy with our son, Brady. So he has been taking it since before he was born. It’s been over twelve years now and Brady is one healthy critter!
Q: Who makes BarleyLife® Xtra? BarleyLife® Xtra is made by The AIM Companies™, a thirty-seven year old company in Nampa, Idaho.
In 1982, AIM pioneered a way to juice plants such as carrots, beets and barley grass. The juice is then made into an easy to consume powder, delivering concentrated nutrition to your body.
Q: Is The AIM Companies™ a network marketing company? Yes, it's a no-nonsense company that focuses on health and nutrition.
There is the option to do network marketing, if someone wants to do it.
However, I focus on getting customers. I use this website to bring information about BarleyLife® Xtra directly to people who want to learn more about it. The AIM Companies™ compensates me to do that, instead of setting up retail stores.
Anyway, I do not hype or hound anyone, in case you're worried about that. Fewer than one in a hundred people want to do any type of sales, so why annoy them and take a chance on losing a good customer?
I also do not try to convince or persuade anyone to become a customer. I simply find people who believe nutrition matters and makes a difference in their health.
The Bottom Line: If buying nutritional supplements from a network marketing company makes you feel at all uncomfortable, then you should not order BarleyLife® Xtra.
Q: How often do I have to order? You only order what you need. There is no monthly quota or required minimum order. You order what you want, when you want it.
Many folks are understandably skeptical of network marketing companies and concerned they'll have products coming to their house every month - even if they don't want them. An AIM membership is simply a wholesale number, like you get at Sam's Club™, which allows you to order products at the wholesale price and save money.
Q: Does BarleyLife® Xtra come with any type of guarantee? BarleyLife® Xtra comes with an absolute satisfaction, no fine print guarantee. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, simply return the unused portion within thirty days, for a full one hundred percent money-back refund. No hassles and no hard feelings.
Q: How do I order BarleyLife® Xtra? You have the option of going online or calling 1-800-456-2462. It's extremely convenient and your order arrives within five to seven days. When calling to become a Member and order BarleyLife® Xtra, use our referral number 477210.

BarleyLife® Xtra is an excellent way for you to reap the benefits of a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. It only takes a few minutes a day to give your body the nutrition it needs, but the benefits last a lifetime.
You may be thinking, "All of this sounds good. But what are the negatives regarding BarleyLife Xtra?"
The following are the detriments I've come up with concerning this green powder:
- Some people may not like the taste of it. (The original BarleyLife® is available in veggie capsules.)
- BarleyLife® Xtra cannot be purchased at a retail store. If you run out of it and don't have a back-up jar, it takes five to seven days for your new order to arrive at your home. (There is an option available for a monthly auto-ship.)
- The green powder may not look appetizing to some people. You may have trouble getting your child or spouse to even try it. (That's why we put BarleyLife® Xtra in juice for our picky eater son.)
- A small number of people may feel worse after taking BarleyLife® Xtra. This is due to a cleansing process known as detoxification, which is the body getting rid of toxins. A few people might experience tiredness, a rash or a headache. This can last a few days.
- The kelp, vitamin K and a few other vitamins and minerals found in BarleyLife® Xtra can interfere with some medications. As long as your doctor has not forbidden you from eating salads or green vegetables, you can consume BarleyLife® Xtra.
- Some people may feel the cost does not fit their budget. You should not buy BarleyLife® Xtra if you are unable to afford it. (Cheap supplements are not good and good supplements are not cheap. Quality is everything. No matter how little you pay, the most expensive supplement is one that doesn't work.)
- Because it's real food, BarleyLife® Xtra is best absorbed on an empty stomach. It may not always be convenient to wait until you have an empty stomach. (We take it first thing in the morning. Our son drinks his BarleyLife® Xtra in juice throughout the day.)
- Nutritional supplements typically take time to rebuild the body. They're not a quick fix like drugs or surgery, which usually do not rebuild your body. People who are extremely sick need to use BarleyLife® Xtra for at least three months to notice a difference and feel confident they're doing the right thing for themselves and their family.
So those are the negatives I've found regarding BarleyLife® Xtra.
By the way, BarleyLife® Xtra is not marketed as a magic bullet or 'miracle' drug. It is part of an overall healthy lifestyle.
Removing sugar, vegetable/seed oils, and processed carbohydrates from your diet, along with eating well, exercising well, sleeping well, minimizing stress, and getting plenty of sunshine, goes a long way towards putting the odds for good health in your favor.
What People Are Saying
"When we lived in San Antonio, my wife and I drove down to the border town of Larado. This elderly lady was there with her hands and fingers constricted like claws, from arthritis. I was amazed at how bad they were.
I suggested she start taking large amounts of BarleyLife. When I say large amounts, I'm talking about five to seven tablespoons throughout the day.
We went back several months later. She comes up to me with tears of joy running down her face, saying in Spanish, 'Look! Look!' and freely moving her fingers around. 'Look at what this has done for me!' " - Darryl Hicks, Apple Valley, Minnesota
