Coenzyme Q10, Omega-3 and Omega-6 for Heart Health

With the power of coenzyme Q10, omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, heart health supplements from The AIM Companies™ are on the cutting edge.

These are two of the most effective, all-natural cardiovascular supplements available. For matters of the heart - be it blood pressure, heart disease or other issues - supplements like CellSparc 360® and AIMega® have you covered.

CellSparc 360® combines coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) with tocotrienols and fish oil. The three ingredients work together to improve energy production, lower cholesterol and maintain heart health. Each capsule of CellSparc 360® contains 60 milligrams of CoQ10. This antioxidant helps facilitate molecular breakdowns in the body to produce energy, a function vital to heart health.

The heart muscle uses more energy than any other tissue. Therefore, it requires the highest concentration of CoQ10. As we age, our bodies produce less CoQ10. When the body's supply of CoQ10 is depleted, the heart is one of the first to feel it…

A Question About The New Peak Endurance®

"I have a question on the new Peak Endurance. The first ingredient is maltodextrin. Is this derived from corn? If so, is the corn organic or GMO free? Thanks!" - Nancy from St. Pete, Florida


"Hi Nancy, we use corn maltodextrin in Peak Endurance® as a source of complex carbohydrate and it’s role in the formula is additional fuel for athletic performance. Both Gatorade® and Powerade® used the less desirable high fructose corn syrup as as a carbohydrate source until 2011, but Gatorade® has since switched to a sugar beet sourced sucrose-dextrose blend.

The old and new Peak Endurance® has had fruit and flavor components that are dried on common corn maltodextrin it tests GMO-free with a detection limit of 0.1% Additionally, AIM Quality Assurance is currently in the process of testing and labeling a number of our products as GMO-free and Peak Endurance® is on our list for 2013 completion." - Quality Assurance and Product Development at The AIM Companies™

The Best Thing You Can Do For Good Health?

Supplementing with BarleyLife® may be the best thing that anyone can do to maintain good health.

A 2010 medical study of medicinal plants showed that barley grass powder is therapeutic for diabetics because it can significantly lower fasting blood sugar levels.

In the group studied, those taking the barley grass powder had their cholesterol levels reduced as well. So the risk of coronary heart disease was also lowered.

Is Sitting The Smoking of Our Generation?

"After 1 hour of sitting, the production of enzymes that burn fat declines by as much as 90%. Extended sitting slows the body's metabolism affecting things like (good cholesterol) HDL levels in our bodies. Research shows that this lack of physical activity is directly tied to 6% of the impact for heart diseases, 7% for type 2 diabetes, and 10% for breast cancer, or colon cancer. You might already know that the death rate associated with obesity in the US is now 35 million. But do you know what it is in relationship to Tobacco? Just 3.5 million." - Nilofer Merchant, corporate director at a NASDAQ-traded firm and a lecturer at Stanford

Is Elevated Levels of Insulin The Cause of Disease?

"The hypothesis I currently find most compelling is that chronically elevated levels of insulin - rather than excessive calorie consumption or lack of exercise - is at the heart of the most pervasive chronic diseases afflicting our society: obesity, heart disease, cancer and even Alzheimer’s disease. I believe the key to peak performance and what I call “chronic health” is to reduce the secretion of insulin so you can run your body on your own fat stores." - Dr. Petter Attia, M.D.

No More Sore Throats, Colds or Sinus Infections

"I must shout from the proverbial rooftop. I've been using AIM products now for sixteen months and not had so much as a sore throat. No common cold. No flu. No cough or upper respiratory 'anything.' And, not even one of my usual two to four annual sinus infections.

Also, I've not suffered from hay fever last spring or this fall. This totally blows my mind. I usually end up being on antibiotics several times a year, and this has happened for the past thirty years. In fact, I haven't been on any antibiotics since starting AIM products. The AIM Companies truly does have products that work.

I take Herbal Fiberblend (a must for me to manage my severe irritable bowel syndrome), BarleyLife, LeafGreens (really helps my allergies), Proancynol 2000, and FloraFood - biggies for boosting my immune system. As well, I use GinkgoSense, Renewed Balance and AIMega for its omega-3 and-6 essential fatty acids.

My list of products also includes GlucoChrom, PrepZymes (when I do e…

Stay Healthy During The Winter Months

Greens burst with nutrients for good health. But in the dead of winter, it can be a challenge to find a fresh daily supply. This is especially rue for those living in northern climates.

No wonder this is the time of year for colds and the flu. Supplemental winter greens are easily at hand with BarleyLife® - full of natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, phytonutrients (plant medicines) and antioxidants (cancer fighters) to keep you healthy throughout all four seasons.

Offering a source of unmatched green nutrition for over thirty years, BarleyLife® brims with the nutritional density available from young barley plants - harvested before the fields of barley turn to grain. The juice of the grass is gently dried into a powder, allowing the nutrients to be easily absorbed into your body either dry or mixed in a cool, non-acidic beverage.

For newcomers to The AIM Companies™, the idea of getting nutrition from a green powder might seem unusual. However, there is no easier way to…

Natural Detoxification with Herbal Fiberblend®

Every day, your body is subjected to toxins in the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat. Polluted air, water, or foods (from chemicals and preservatives) are sources of toxins that you may have little or no control over, depending on where you live or work and your nutritional choices.

The symptoms of having too many toxins in your body can include constipation, a lack of energy, digestive problems, aches and pains, inflammation, and difficulties in trying to lose weight. The longer that toxins stay in your body, the worse your health can get. Detoxification is a necessary step to help reverse the situation.

A simple and effective way to detoxify is to get more dietary fiber. Along with eating fiber-rich foods, Herbal Fiberblend® can supplement your intake with psyllium fiber in combination with herbs to help cleanse your digestive tract, promote regular bowel movements and remove harmful toxins.

Herbal Fiberblend® provides both soluble and insoluble fiber. Inso…

Peak Performance with ATP, Vitamin C and More

The results you have come to appreciate from Peak Endurance® are now delivered in a bold, new flavor with additional vitamin C and natural electrolytes.

Peak Endurance® electrolyte energy mix now comes in blueberry acai, replacing the former grape flavor. Each 300 gram canister of Peak Endurance® makes up to five-and-a-half gallons of blueberry-acai-flavored energy drinks.

In addition to the flavor change, the formulation of Peak Endurance® has undergone some improvements. Notably, the vitamin C content, which previously accounted for 50 percent of a person's Recommended Daily Intake (RDI), now accounts for 72 percent of the RDI (USA) for vitamin C per serving.

Sodium chloride has been replaced with natural sea salt providing 94 mg per serving.

A new ingredient in Peak Endurance® is coconut water. It is considered nature's best electrolyte and contributes to the product's proper balance of all six major electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and…

Why Are Some Kids Overweight?

Why are some kids overweight? It's not because of a lack of physical activity.

More than likely, it's due to consuming processed, high-carb junk food.

We don't allow our kids to smoke. We don't let them drink alcohol.

So why are we letting our kids eat things that will cause them to get fat?

How Do You Get Kids To Eat More Vegetables?

"My 17 months-old daughter loves veggies like broccoli and carrots. She can’t get enough of them. Why? Her veggies are fried in butter. A healthy choice: Butter is better." - Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, M.D.

A Natural Sleep Aid and Stress Reliever

Some sleep aids will impair your ability to perform certain activities the next day, especially your ability to drive. So why not choose Composure® as another option?

The herbal formula of Composure® provides a natural answer for relieving stress and putting your mind at ease for a good night’s sleep.

"Some people do experience sleepyness when taking Composure, while others state it helps them to relax and helps them sleep. I think most people that have trouble sleeping also have issues with stress and Composure can assist those dealing with stress." - Phillip Jermann, Biologist, The AIM Companies

Are You Fighting Pain, Fatigue or Arthritis?

After researchers studied twenty-two clinical studies involving patients with chronic pain, fatigue and arthritis, they discovered a commonality: low vitamin D levels.

It was discovered that in almost all cases, when given sufficient vitamin D, the aches and pains of the test subjects dramatically improved or entirely went away.

Consider CalciAIM™, an all-natural source of vitamin D.

For joint discomfort, combine CalciAIM™ with AIMega® and Frame Essentials®.

Do You Crave Sugar?

Did you know it's in our DNA to crave sugar?

The average consumer eats three pounds per week. Back in the 19th century, the average person would only consume five pounds of sugar a year. We've gotten a little out of control.

There are two types of sugar: added and natural. Our body can't tell the difference between the two of them. Our body simply knows it wants sweets.

If you'll get your sweets from natural sources, then you will also get the fiber and other vitamins that come with it, without the empty calories.

GlucoChrom™ can be extremely helpful to stabilize blood glucose levels and curb the cravings.

Another benefit of GlucoChrom™ is that it helps metabolize fats and facilitates lean muscle and weight loss.

Seven Bone-Building Nutrients

1. Calcium - one of the most important nutrients when it comes to bone health; Try to get 1,000mg to 1,300mg a day.

2. Vitamin D - a catalyst; calcium relies on vitamin D to help it travel to the parts of the body that need it

3. Magnesium - neutralizes metabolic acids, absorbs calcium, and maintains strong bone structure

4. Protein - high-protein foods make great bone builders

5. Potassium - slows the decline in bone mineral density that occurs with aging

6. Vitamin K - helps slow bone loss and reduces your risk of breaking a bone later in life

7. Vitamin C - enables your body to produce collagen, a protein that contributes to bone strength and integrity

The AIM Companies™ offers all of these essential nutrients to its Members. Protect yourself with these bone-building products: CalciAIM™, ProPeas®, BarleyLife® and LeafGreens™.

Forget About 'Fat Burning Foods'

"Forget about "fat burning foods". It's not like you eat a cup of broccoli and your fat cells burst into an inferno. Yes, everything we eat has a corresponding physiological response. But "burning" fat due to the ingestion of a particular food is a misnomer for the most part. Eat real food in appropriate quantity. Move your body in a manner that you find challenging. Allow for adequate rest and recovery. Smile. The end." - Vic Magary, Fitness Trainer and Weight Loss Expert

Let's Talk About The New Peak Endurance®

To get through your daily routine, you're going to need energy. Where do you get it?

Each one of your cells is a tiny factory that manufactures adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This high-energy molecule is produced by your body from the breakdown of food.

Yet studies show ATP levels decline with age. From age twenty to age seventy, ATP levels are reduced by fifty percent. If you’re operating with fifty percent less ATP, you're struggling to produce energy to fire up your cells.

Peak Endurance® is clinically proven to elevate ATP levels. Think of ATP as the battery that powers your body. You can keep fully charged throughout the day with Peak Endurance®.

What People Are Saying

"I love Peak Endurance and have been taking it ever since it was introduced. I have fibromyalgia and many of the symptoms were reduced by taking BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend. But I feel even better after adding Peak Endurance. After taking Peak Endurance twice daily, I noticed that I was more alert. …

One Way To Improve Your Bad (LDL) Cholesterol

You can improve your Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), also known as bad cholesterol, by the foods you eat.

Phytosterols have been found to help lower cholesterol. They are in many nutritious foods such as fruits, vegetables and nuts. The key is to consume more than two grams a day.

Research suggests it is possible to lower your LDL by ten percent. This can be difficult with diet alone.

And that’s where AIMega® and the Garden Trio® would be helpful. To learn more, Click Here.

Every Man Over 40 Needs This

When you reach middle age, negative physical changes may start to occur. Around the age of forty, a man might be told by his doctor his prostate is getting larger. This can interfere with the normal functions in this area of his body. The AIM Companies™ has something natural for the gents to help with this issue.

ReAssure® SP

An enlarged prostate can lead to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The effects include frequent urination in the middle of the night, changes in urinary flow and bladder infections. Men can also experience painful urination, blood in the urine and a loss of urinary control. Although its exact cause is unknown, studies show BPH may result from the hormonal changes a man goes through as he ages.

ReAssure® SP is a combination of saw palmetto berry oil extract, pumpkin seed oil, zinc citrate and lycopene. These four ingredients are effective in relieving the symptoms associated with BPH and maintaining a healthy prostate.

Men should make sure they’re getting the nut…
