BarleyLife® Keeps Getting Better

Changes in the mineral content of BarleyLife® are directly related to changes in the soil chemistry in which it is grown. There were increases and decreases in specific minerals, when barley production from The AIM Companies™ went from the volcanic soils of New Zealand to Canadian river basin soils. After years of soil analysis, we now ensure the most fertile fields to date. This translates to a higher mineral content in BarleyLife®.

Overall, the 4 gram serving of BarleyLife® now contains about 12% more minerals than before, with the improved soil conditions being a major contributor.

Over the years, we have established higher standards for barley. We now have even better soil and a lower temperature process. Quality assurance from The AIM Companies™ ensures all barley grass meets our stringent microbial, nutritional and safety standards. BarleyLife® labels of color and taste will continue to lead the worldwide green powder market.

All BarleyLife® labels now include the following stat…

The Paleo Bread Recipe

I honestly do not miss eating bread, but it's always good to have a back-up plan.

So when I saw this Paleo bread recipe, I thought I would post it here:
16-oz. jar creamy almond butter 6 eggs 2 teaspoons baking powder ½ teaspoon salt ¾ cup warm water Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.Mix the ingredients in a mixing bowl.Pour the batter into a 9 x 5 greased bread pan.Bake until firm. (About one hour)Maybe now I'll go fix myself a BLT.

Free Radicals Are Bad News

Superoxide is a free radical produced by breathing. As it moves through the body, it causes imbalance among cells and can ultimately lead to disease.

To stop this molecule, the body relies on antioxidants (cancer fighters). One of the most powerful antioxidants is superoxide dismutase (SOD). The SOD enzyme in BarleyLife® allows the formerly dangerous free radical superoxide to return to a balanced oxygen molecule.

The reaction of SOD to superoxide is unlimited, so a single SOD enzyme can interact with thousands of different superoxide molecules in its lifetime. SOD is about 3,500 times more efficient at counteracting superoxide than vitamin C.

A test method for SOD called superoxide radical scavenging capacity (SORAC) reports a 972 value per serving of BarleyLife®, which is significantly greater than the SORAC values of of onions, apples and cherries.

What Is Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disorder?

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is the build up of extra fat in the liver that is not caused by alcohol.

One-third of Americans - sixty million people - who have no history of significant alcohol consumption have fatty livers.

Research shows two things in the American diet cause the storage of fat in the liver: fructose (sugar) and omega-6 fats (found in vegetable oils).

Fat in the liver causes fat around your middle. It can also lead to cirrhosis, liver failure or liver cancer. A fatty liver often goes hand in hand with diabetes.

Studies at Duke and Cambridge University found that subjects who went on a low-carbohydrate, high-fat and high-saturated fat diet quickly reduced the amount of fat in their livers.

AIM Quality Testing vs Organic

The AIM Companies™ is always striving for 100% customer satisfaction.

Can Too Much Protein Interfere With Weight Loss?

"I bet you never thought protein could hinder your weight loss – but it can. Why? Here’s the word: Gluconeogenesis. When you consume excess protein, your liver transforms it into glucose (sugar). If you are eating lean meats like chicken breasts, turkey and lower-fat cuts of beef or pork, you might be defeating the purpose of your low carb lifestyle. Try choosing fattier cuts of meat and controlling the absolute amount of protein you are eating to see how that impacts your blood ketone levels." - Jimmy Moore, blogger and author
