Do You Have Diarrhea, Gas and Constipation?

There are more bacteria in your digestive system than there are cells in your body - some 100 trillion. Their total weight is about four pounds - the size of your liver.

Bacteria have both "friendly" and "unfriendly" populations. When unfriendly bacteria dominate, the effects include diarrhea, gas, bloating, intestinal toxicity, constipation and malabsorption of nutrients.

There are also illnesses that results from pathogens like E. Coli and Salmonella.

FloraFood® helps restore the healthy bacteria in the intestinal tract, which is necessary for a healthy body.

Nampa's The AIM Companies Sponsors U.S. Athlete

When the 2014 Olympic Winter Games begin in February, the staff at one Nampa company will be watching extra closely.

J.R. Celski, 23, is the top American short track skater going into the Sochi Olympics after he finished first in the overall standings at the Olympic trials in Salt Lake City earlier this month. Celski already holds two Olympic medals - bronzes in the men’s 5,000-meter relay and the men’s 1,500-meter from the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. He also holds the world record in the 500-meter.

Celski qualified for the 500-meter, 100-meter and 1,500-meter events at the Olympic trials.

But before the medals and records, Celski was a promising young athlete at age 12 in Federal Way, Wash. In 2003, his parents, Bob and Sue Celski, wrote a letter to The AIM Companies, based in Nampa, asking if AIM was interested in sponsoring J.R. They told the company their son took AIM’s Barley Life nutritional supplement every day as part of his nutritional package and felt it m…

How To Naturally Lower Total Cholesterol

If you want to naturally lower total cholesterol, then you need 25-30 grams of fiber a day. Studies indicate that soluble fiber lowers cholesterol and reduces risk of heart disease.

It's also recommended to take a daily omega supplement. For those looking for a vegetarian source that is organic and a balance blend of 3,6, and 9 essential fatty acid, you are covered with AIMega®.

AIMega® and a combination of Herbal Fiberblend® and fit ‘n fiber® can help you lower bad cholesterol and increase your good cholesterol.

Note: Soluble fiber dissolves in water to form a gel-like substance, which then swells and prevents rapid absorption of glucose and cholesterol into the bloodstream.

P.S. Someone recently asked, "Does it interact with Warfarin?"

Answer: Consulting your physician is always a good idea if you have any concerns. It's best to take your warfarin and fiber separately as to not interrupt absorption of the warfarin. If possible, fiber is best taken in the evening…

Do You Need To Detox and Rejuvenate?

Do you need to cleanse?

One of the most effective methods of giving your body a much needed break from its ongoing process of keeping you alive is through the AIM Detox and Rejuvenate Program - a booklet that shows you the way to help your body rest, cleanse and rejuvenate.

The recommended 4-week detoxifying process is a combination of eating fresh, whole food; drinking pure water; and supplementing with a selection of AIM products that cleanse your body and maintain a healthy alkaline body pH.

The Toxic Build-Up

Toxins that impact your health can come from internal sources, including food, water, and stress, as well as external sources, such as body care products and pollution. Your body cleanses itself every day by removing toxins through the skin, lungs, liver, colon, and other major organs. Even though this automatic mechanism never stops, it can become clogged and work less than optimally. Over time the build-up of toxins leads to a weakened immune system - your body's defen…

The Shortcut To Better Health

The Secret Ingredient of a Healthy Diet

The struggle to maintain good internal health is made difficult by the fact that we simply cannot see what is going on inside our bodies. Though we may not be able to see the progress a healthy diet and sound nutrition are making, we can test it.

Body pH test strips measure the alkalinity or acidity of our bodies. Through either a saliva test or a urine test, the test strips are able to gauge how well our internal health is doing and give us an idea of what we have to shoot for.

Body pH is an ideal indicator of overall body health. Since pH affects the way our bodies function on the cellular level, maintaining a healthy pH is essential to warding off disease, protecting the immune and nervous systems, and establishing a clean bill of health.

The Essential Value of a Healthy pH

pH runs on a scale of zero to 14 with seven being pH neutral. Anything under seven is considered acidic and anything over seven is alkaline. In general, a healthy pH level will…

The Minerals in BarleyLife®

What are minerals and why do we need them?

Minerals are inorganic substances meaning that they occur naturally in non-living things such as water, rocks and soil.

Minerals, which are not optional for good health, are needed to help our bodies function properly. Without them, we become tired and overweight.

A perfectly balanced whole-food concentrate, with vitamins, minerals and more is BarleyLife®. You can have a healthier life by starting your day with this nutritious green powder.

P.S. BarleyLife® contains at least sixteen vitamins, eleven major minerals and twelve trace minerals. It has eleven times the calcium in milk, five times the iron in spinach, seven times the vitamin C in oranges and 80 mg of vitamin B12 per hundred grams.

Vitamin K2 For Prostate Health

A study recently published by the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) shows increased intake of vitamin K2 may reduce the risk of prostate cancer by 35 percent.

Dark, leafy greens are also high in this essential, fat-soluble micronutrient. BarleyLife® is naturally rich in vitamin K2.

Are You Getting The Right Nutrition?

"Regardless of the extent or length of time you have had sick cells, they will make a Herculean effort to improve when given the right nutrients." - Dr. Mary Ruth Swope, Ph.D., nutrition educator

Dr. James Carlson Talks About Whole Grains

"To make the suggestion or even the slightest innuendo that whole grains are good for us is just plain wrong. The fact is that the consumption of whole grains, multi grains, seven grains, whole wheat pasta, brown rice, yogurt, oat meal and fruit are the reasons heart disease is the number one killer; why we Americans are getting fatter and fatter and why the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes is skyrocketing." - Dr. James Carlson, M.D. , Board Certified Family Physician

The Advantages of Pea Protein Over Whey Protein

A significant portion of the population is at least mildly allergic to whey protein.

One bodybuilder claimed he became more cut and less "puffy" when he switched from whey to pea protein. He believed it was due to his previous allergenic inflammation response to whey protein.

Whey protein is higher in two specific amino acids, cysteine and methionine. These are the only two amino acids that contain sulfur.

Sulfur has a strong acidifying effect on the body, so whey protein is more likely to make someone acidic than is pea protein.

This blue bar chart emphasizes that pea protein is more slowly digested than whey. For every gram of pea protein consumed, you burn one of the four calories through the digestion process.

On the other hand, whey protein is quickly digested, so this calorie is not lost through digestion. Pea protein is a much better choice for someone that is looking for a weight loss.
