BarleyLife® For Serious Health Issues

"I'm passionate about sharing the benefits of AIM BarleyLife."

Facing serious family health issues, Randy and Pat Ward of Udall, Kansas began a one-and-a-half-year search of alternative health products. They were drawn to the quality supplements and philosophy of The AIM Companies™.

"I heard about the benefits of barley grass," Randy said. "After looking at many of the barley products out there, we decided to
 follow the original company, since AIM set it up from the start."

Randy, who is sixty-one years old, takes BarleyLife® to avoid the poor
 physical health examples so common among people in his age bracket. First and 
foremost, Randy maintains a healthy weight and diet.

"I want to be a good example," he says.

Other members of his extended family also began taking BarleyLife® and word of its
 health benefits got around.

"I talk to a lot of different people and share information about the necessary changes for a healthier lifestyle,…

Red Rush™ Powers 84 Year Old Iron Man Lew Hollander

AIM Living Well Magazine, August 2014
Lew Hollander once said in an interview with Bleacher Report that "a lot of my contemporaries, a lot of people my age, are either barely getting around or dead."

But Lew doesn't have any trouble getting around and he certainly is not dead.

In fact, at the age of eighty-four, Lew Hollander completed the Ironman 70.3 Boise on June 7, 2014, a half-Ironman competition held every year in Boise, Idaho. This half-Ironman triathlon is composed of a 1.2-mile swim, a fifty-six mile bike race and a 13.1-mile run. Those numbers are doubled for regular Ironman triathlons, which Lew has been competing in since the tender young age of fifty-five.

Lew is the oldest athlete ever to finish the Hawaii Ironman or any other full-length triathlon and is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records. This year he is again entered in the Hawaii Ironman.

People ask Lew if there's a pill or a drug that extends his life and allows him to finish grueling tri…

BarleyLife® For Staph Infection

"In 1989, Frank started work in the lift industry. He went through as a Trades Assistant and was put in charge of maintaining escalators. All types of junk end up in the shaft of an escalator.

One Sunday, he cut a small piece out of his thumb while doing maintenance on an escalator. A large, red lump appeared, which looked like a boil about to rupture. On medical advice, he was told it was golden staph. Months of anti-biotics followed.

If he cut or scratched himself, he would get breakouts on any part of his body.

In 2001, we called our plumber for repairs. He asked Frank why he had his neck in plaster. After being told Frank had golden staph, the plumber showed his leg, which was severely scarred. He said he had been told he would have to have his leg removed eight years before.

He gave us the phone number for AIM in Melbourne. He told us a Chinese herbalist had recommended he try BarleyLife before going for surgery.

I joined AIM that day and received our parcel a few days l…

Lifestyle Changes and AIM For Healthy Weight Loss

"I've been overweight all of my life, attending my first Weight Watchers meeting at the age of nine. By 2002, I had reached my all-time heaviest weight of 293 pounds. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I began a journey to find my way to good health.

Using a variety of different diets and methods, I have managed to lose over one hundred pounds, but I was still not eating very healthy and felt tired all the time. My blood sugar continued to be unstable.

This changed when I found The AIM Companies and My Busy Healthy Life with Celeste Davis. After doing a twenty-one day cleanse, I felt great and my blood sugar stabilized. I am now learning how to maintain these improvements. AIM products are awesome and my body loves them.

Lifestyle changes along the way have been essential to keeping the weight off. I am not eating fast food for nearly every meal any more. Even though it took several years to end an addiction to drinking soda pop, I gave it up. [Editor's note: U.…

Garden Trio® Improves Poor Liver Color

"We volunteer at the Redwood Gospel Mission, a drug and alcohol rehab center that also feeds the homeless. One of the men we met there told us the doctor said his liver was gray and he might need a transplant.

We gave him a mixture of the Garden Trio - BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets. He took it daily for two months. When he went in for a sonogram, the doctor was amazed there were areas of his liver that were the color of a healthy liver.

Since we've been taking the Garden Trio, we rarely even catch a cold." - Tim and Karen Hudson, Rohnert Park, California

To learn more about the Garden Trio®, Click Here.

P.S. To match the nutritional power of the Garden Trio®, you would need three servings of green vegetables to equal a single serving of BarleyLife®.

Also, it takes twenty-five pounds of carrots to equal one pound of Just Carrots®. And you would need twenty-five pounds of beets to equal one pound RediBeets®.

The Garden Trio® makes juicing simple - without the me…

LeBron James Low Carb Weight Loss Plan

LeBron James has been getting a lot of attention lately on social media as well as the sports networks for his recent weight loss.

The weight loss occurred over the past two summer months and he used a low carbohydrate plan to do it.
"The basic, scientific concept behind James’ weight loss and low-carb diet is simple: train the body to rely on fat for fuel. The goal of restricting your daily intake of carbohydrates is to create a metabolic state called ketosis, where the body uses fat as a source of energy instead of glucose (aka carbs) in the blood and liver. When carbs are restricted low enough, the body will produce ketones, which can be used as energy - something that Dr. Jeff Volek says is inherently in our genetic code.  "There is a growing number of athletes who have been told that they need carbs and now you see them questioning that conventional wisdom,” says Volek, co-author of two books including, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance. “It does take…

The First and Largest Distributor of Green Barley Grass

It all started thirty-three years ago, with the idea to sell and distribute green barley grass.

What's amazing is how unique that idea was back then.

The idea existed in a world where there wasn't a national chain of health food stores. The idea existed in a world where people played with lawn darts and smoked cigarettes in restaurants.

The idea existed in a world where absolutely nobody sold or distributed whole-food juice concentrates made from living green barley grass.

And it was this singular, unlikely and bold idea that The AIM Companies™ was founded on, making us the first and largest distributor of green barley grass in the world.

In its thirty-three years, BarleyLife® has remained pretty much the same.

Sure, the packaging changed over the years. Some of you may recall the glass jars with the red lids or the different labels we've used, but these were all small, aesthetic changes. The only real difference has been the increase in the nutritional density of BarleyL…

The Good Kind of Fat

Is A High-Fat Diet Good For Diabetics?

A Swedish study showing a low-carbohydrate diet provides moderate benefits for diabetics has been looked at again.

It now finds reduced inflammation in diabetics, who were given advice on a high-fat diet with fewer carbohydrates.

The study from the Annals of Medicine:
Advice to follow a low-carbohydrate diet has a favourable impact on low-grade inflammation in type 2 diabetes compared with advice to follow a low-fat diet. To read the study, Click Here.

Exercise For Weight Loss?

The National Weight Control Registry did a large survey of its members. The survey found that ninety percent of those who had lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off for 5.5 years, exercise at least one hour per day.

So if you are not exercising on a regular basis, the chances of you losing weight and keeping it off dramatically go down.

To check out the research findings, Click Here.

P.S. A University of Alabama study found that people who lifted weights lost more belly fat than those who only did cardio.

The Many Health Benefits of ProPeas®

A vegetable protein powder made from field peas is ProPeas®. It is allergen-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, low in cabohydrates and low in sugar.

Pea protein also boosts energy, increases metabolism and helps manage weight.

Click Here to find out more about ProPeas®.

P.S. A large portion of the population is at least mildly allergic 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. An acidic body pH is toxic to your health. It can cause allergies, obesity, weak bones and more.

On the other hand, ProPeas® contains 12 grams of alkalizing vegetable protein per serving. An alkaline body is a healthy body.

So don’t waste your time and money on whey and soy protein powders. Feed your body ProPeas®. It is the best vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, pea protein on the market.

Why Your Ice Cream Sandwiches Don't Melt Anymore

A Cincinnati mother was surprise when her son left an ice cream sandwich outside on a patio table – and it didn’t melt. A TV channel did their own tests and confirmed it.

Yet the manufacturer of the non-melting ice cream claims it is “healthy” and meets all requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

More on Gluten and BarleyLife®

"The gluten is in the barley grain and not the grass. However, the grain begins its development at ground level and migrates to the top of the barley stem as the grass ages. Although we harvest our grass at a young age, we cannot ensure we've excluded the embryonic plant grain.

We now test all BarleyLife for gluten and about 80% of it is gluten-free and 20% of our contains 20 - 80 PPM of hordein gluten. This equates to 80 to 320 mcg of gluten per 4 gram serving of the 20% of BarleyLife that tests gluten positive. A few isolated studies have concluded that levels of 10,000 mcg of gliadin (wheat gluten) per day will be tolerated by most patients with celiac disease.

To put this quantity into perspective, a slice of wheat bread contains 4,800,000 mcg of gluten. In other words, it is likely the gluten in BarleyLife is below the reaction threshold for most celiacs, whereas a slice of wheat bread is far above it." - AIM Quality Assurance
