Healthy Heart Story Inspires Seven Year-Old Boy

"My husband and our children mix BarleyLife with water and drink it each morning before we eat breakfast.

Recently, seven year-old Joseph and I were looking at the February issue of Living Well magazine and reading about "heart healthy" Fred and Marlene Hampshire.

I pointed out to Joseph that he drinks BarleyLife, just like Mr. Hampshire. We talked about the importance of having a healthy heart and a healthy body.

Joseph, with a sparkle in his eyes, exclaimed, "Mommy! Can you take a picture of me and tell 'em I drink my Barleylife every day? I might be world famous in the newspapers one day, too - like Mr. Fred Hampshire!"

I was so blessed with Joseph’s enthusiasm and joy. It's encouraging he sees and reads about people who inspire him to make healthy choices.

I am asking God to teach him while he is young and I am praying he and his sisters will make healthy choices and live long, healthy lives. Thanks for all you do to help people live well." -…

"I no longer take anything for arthritis."

"I've been taking BarleyLife, RediBeets, and Just Carrots for about thirteen years. I no longer take anything for arthritis. As long as I take my daily trio, I do great!" - Thelma Hilliard, Cary, North Carolina

P.S. BarleyLife®, Redibeets®, and Just Carrots® are three whole-food supplements known as the Garden Trio®. Many people prefer them, rather than juicing the vegetables themselves.

"I feel better than I've felt in months!"

"I've been taking BarleyLife for the past two weeks. Last week I had lost eight pounds in the first week of adding BarleyLife to my lifestyle change.

Well this week, I lost another four pounds to bring the total weight lost to twelve pounds in only two weeks.

In addition to losing the weight, BarleyLife has given me a spark of energy, better sleep, lower cravings and better concentration. Overall, I feel better than I've felt in months!

My wife started a BarleyLife regimen for three weeks. She can certainly tell that BarleyLife is working. She has lost four pounds, decreased her stress level, lowered her blood pressure, slept better at night and lost the cravings for sweet tea, coffee and cola.

We both have a family history of cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart problems. We are not going there. That’s why we've been so interested in improving our health.

The AIM Companies for us was a missing piece. And when we got it, it just fit perfectly with …

"I didn’t realize they were even helping until a few weeks later, when I realized I had no pain at all!"

"I clean eight homes and offices three days per week. Because of the repetitive motion of movements such as sweeping and mopping, I developed joint pain in both of my wrists, elbows and shoulders.

I also walked three miles per day, two or three days per week, causing bursitis in my hips. I'm fifty-three years-old.

My doctor gave me a prescription for pain relief, but that didn't always work. In the back of my mind I always wondered what it was doing to my liver.

I was introduced to BarleyLife by Charlotte Thompson, through a health talk she gave at a ladies' retreat about three years ago.

I started taking BarleyLife and slowly added several other AIM products, including Frame Essentials, for my joint pain. I stopped taking my prescription medicine and took the Frame Essentials instead.

I took the recommended amount, but still had pain that kept me awake at night.

I finally asked Charlotte just how many Frame Essential capsules I could take and she said, "They wi…

"I lost twenty-five pounds and got a flat stomach too."

"Since starting BarleyLife in October, I lost twenty-five pounds and got a flat stomach too.

All this with no extra exercise and no more cravings for sweets and heavy foods.

Wherever I go, people stop me to ask how I did it so quickly. I went from a size ten to a size six in four months. My seamstress is now on my healthy plan!

The best thing is that I did it primarily for my health. I don't have aches and stiffness and my husband doesn't cough and clear his throat all day.

I now have a whole new perspective of food and the food industry and that helps me avoid bad foods." - Amanda Flint, Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada

Is BarleyLife® Gluten Free?

Question: "We have encountered a few people that apparently can’t take BarleyLife, because they are either Celiac or have some issues with gluten, but they have not yet been diagnosed with Celiac disease. One company I know of is making a whole leaf wheat grass product and are claiming it to be gluten-free. Has The AIM Companies considered coming out with a greens product that could be certified as gluten free?"

Answer: There is a common misconception that young barley grass is not gluten-free, but indeed it is free of gluten. The grass is cut at a very tender, young age, which causes it to be gluten-free. However, when grasses are allowed to mature, they become a grain and grains do contain gluten. 

Here is more:

"The grass itself is gluten-free. However we harvest millions of pounds of barley grass every year, thus making it extremely difficult to state that BarleyLife is gluten-free. As the grass grows taller and taller, the grain head slowly follows the stem to the …

Is BarleyLife® Suitable For Gluten Intolerant Individuals?

Question: Is there gluten in Barleylife? Is it suitable for gluten intolerant individuals?

Answer: “Every production of BarleyLife is tested for the presences of gluten and more than 80% are tested gluten free. The remaining 20% can test between 5 ppm and 80 ppm. A product with a gluten free claim can contain up to 20 ppm of gluten.

We do harvest the barley plant prior to the emergence of the grain head. However, depending the on the height of the grain head within the grass, it is possible to harvest some grain head within the grass. We process millions of pounds of grass every year and it is nearly impossible to not harvest that many plants without some gluten.

Many AIM Members with gluten allergies consume BarleyLife with no issues. I suggest if you try BarleyLife, place a small amount of powder on your tongue to determine if it will cause you any issues.” – Phillip Jermann, Biologist at The AIM Companies

A Gluten-Free Diet May Change Your Life

The symptoms of a person with gluten intolerance may sound familiar to many: sluggishness, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, reflux, and the list goes on.

The fact is, gluten intolerance is one of the most underdiagnosed conditions in North America. Most people could benefit from a gluten-free or reduced gluten diet.

For those with gluten intolerance, their bodies cannot digest gluten, a protein that appears in wheat, rye, barley, and other grains. This leads to digestive distress and non-gastrointestinal conditions that can be uncomfortable and painful to endure.

An Idaho woman, Sherry, experienced the harsh side effects of gluten for ten years before discovering the root cause. Her many trips to the doctor over the years had yielded the same answer, “We don’t know what’s wrong with you.”

“I didn’t know what gluten was six months ago,” Sherry said, “but my daughter brought me this book, "The Gluten Connection" by Shari Lieberman, and it just fit all my symptoms like acid ref…

More on BarleyLife® and Gluten Issues

Darla Upton, who is gluten intolerant, experiences no negative side effects from taking BarleyLife®.

“As someone who is gluten intolerant, I can attest to the fact that I can consume BarleyLife - and have for thirty years - and do not suffer any ill effects from it. I take two to three servings of BarleyLife a day with no problems, yet one piece of bread and the ill effects are bad.” - Darla Upton, Emmett, Idaho

Note: BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are made from the grass of the barley plant, not the grain.

Note: AIM Members with celiac, sprue and gluten intolerance have used BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra with no negative effects. However, as a consumer, it is ultimately your decision to use these nutritional products.

BarleyLife® and Gluten Issues

Gluten is a sticky issue these days for many people, especially for those who react poorly to its presence in foods they consume.

From the Latin word meaning glue, gluten is a protein composite found in several grains including wheat, rye, and barley. Because barley plants mature into grain, AIM receives regular queries about gluten and BarleyLife®.

When you think of gluten, you really have to think of those mature grains of barley, not the vegetable-like blades of grass.

The young barley plants that provide BarleyLife® nutrition are harvested before reaching the first joint that begins the long, transitional phase of growth into grain.

However, the embryonic grain in a barley seed can account for a minute amount of gluten in the harvested grass. This is why AIM has been randomly testing BarleyLife® for the presence of gluten since 2002.

With the explosion of gluten-free foods in the marketplace and the growing gluten awareness of even those without sensitivities, The AIM Compani…

Every Organ in Your Body Needs Magnesium

According to the USDA, fifty-seven percent of Americans do not get enough magnesium.

Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include fatigue, muscle weakness and cramps, as well as more serious problems such as heart failure. A poor diet and alcohol abuse are a major contributor to a deficiency in magnesium.

Several good sources of magnesium include green leafy vegetables and nuts. This mineral can also be absorbed directly through the skin during a bath or by applying Mag-nificence™ lotion.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, magnesium may enhance the effectiveness of conventional treatment for the following conditions:
Asthma Depression Diabetes Fibromyalgia Noise-related hearing loss Cardiovascular Health Migraine High Blood Pressure OsteoporosisPreclampsia and Eclampsia PMS Restless Leg Syndrome For more information about these studies, check out the University of Maryland website.

The Best Green Powder in The Marketplace?

What is the best green drink powder?

Why is the barley grass plant the choice for concentrated nutrition?

And why in the world would you drink juiced grass?

Health is built at the cellular level. One of the most important aspects of a healthy cell is to meet all the nutritional needs of our cells. Let’s look at the naturally occurring nutrition that comes in BarleyLife®.

Quality Control Markers

The key markers used to determine quality in BarleyLife® are chlorophyll, protein, superoxide dismutase (SOD) and peroxidase.

Chlorophyll is a marker of freshness. The amount of chlorophyll in a product indicates how green and healthy the grass was that produced it. The benefits of chlorophyll fall into three main categories:

1. Purifying: Chlorophyll has an antibacterial effect on wounds and an anti-yeast effect in the digestive tract. It appears to counteract many toxins in the body. Chlorophyll arrests growth and development of unfriendly bacteria.

2. Inflammation: Chlorophyll has the effect o…

Study: Sulforaphane May Protect Against Cancers

A head of broccoli may protect the head of you from various cancers, according to a study out of the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences.

Broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables like Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are good sources of a powerful antioxidant known as sulforaphane. This substance is thought to have a bevvy of health benefits for conditions like autism, osteoarthritis as well as protection from carcinogens.

In this most recent study, scientists selected mice that were genetically predisposed to having a greater risk of oral cancer. For several months, sulfurophane was administered to the rodents. This lead to a decrease in tumors among the at-risk mice.

In phase two, researchers gave sulforaphane-rich juices to ten healthy human volunteers. No adverse effects were recorded, but the scientists were able to detect protective changes in the lining of their mouths. In the future, they plan to run a clinical test on broccoli seed powder by giving it to…

Are Nutritional Supplements A Good Idea?

A study by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows the loss of vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables since 1975:
Apples: Vitamin A is down 41% Sweet peppers: Vitamin C is down 31% Watercress: Iron is down 88% Broccoli: Calcium and vitamin A are down 50% Cauliflower: Vitamin C is down 45%; vitamin B1 is down 48%; and vitamin B2 is down 47% Collards greens: Magnesium is down 85% 
When you eat an apple, it has one-fifth of the nutrition of an apple fifty years ago. You need to eat five times the amount of food your grandparents ate to receive the same nutritional value. So an apple a day won’t keep the doctor away.

Do you believe nutritional supplements might be a good idea?

BarleyLife® for a Toxic World

One of the most powerful green foods, if not the most powerful green food, is barley grass juice. It has the highest level of nutrients needed for excellent immune and endocrine (hormonal) function.

Let’s take a look at some of those nutrients:

Barley grass juice contains a protein that has very strong anti-inflammatory qualities. This would explain why countless reports and letters mention the great improvement in arthritis, gout and fibromyalgia.

Inflammation can result from toxic exposure, so this is essential.

Another substance reportedly reduced is hypercholesterolemia or unhealthy cholesterol levels. Research indicated cholesterol would be reduced by up to fifty percent. Cholesterol is a basic building block of hormones and when the hormonal system works optimally, so does the immune system, which is essential to combating toxins.

The most effective nutrients that help detoxify the body from environmental toxins we are exposed to are the following:
2’-0-Glycosylisovitexin, are f…

Cocoa For Brain-Boosting Power

In a joint study at Harvard and Brigham Young University, researchers found cocoa may aid in the production of nitric oxide, which can increase mental capabilities.

"In patients with coronary artery disease, eating food rich in flavanols, particularly short- and long-term consumption of black tea and red wine, mostly improves endothelial function. In healthy smokers, green tea exerts similar effects. In line with these findings, cocoa induces NO-dependent vasodilation in the rat aorta41 and in the finger or forearm circulation of healthy humans or patients with cardiovascular risk factors, including diabetes. The underlying mechanisms are still elusive." - Circulation

The elderly in the Harvard study, who previously had impaired blood flow, who then consumed cocoa twice daily, had a thirty-percent increase in thinking and memory, as well as an 8.3 percent increase in blood flow.

CoCoa LeafGreen™ contains three different types of cocoa. It is fuel for the mind and tastes like…

BarleyLife® For Red Blood Cell Production

Each four gram serving of BarleyLife® and BarleyLifeBarleyLife® Xtra contains nineteen milligrams of chlorophyll. This green nutrient has a chemical profile that is similar to blood.

While the central atom in human blood is iron, the central atom in chlorophyll is magnesium.

This may be why one of the many benefits of chlorophyll is its potential to stimulate red blood cell production.

Vitamin B-12 and Academic Performance

A Deficiency of Vitamin B-12 Linked to Poor Academic Performance
In general, B vitamins play a significant role in cognitive functioning as well as metabolism.

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found a lack of vitamin B-12 is linked to poor academic performance.

Students who were deficient in this vitamin nearly tripled their chances of repeating a grade and were almost twice as likely to miss school.

The study also found fifteen percent were borderline B-12 deficient, while another two percent were deficient.

The study also looked at other micronutrient deficiencies, but vitamin B-12 was the only one connected to being held back a year.

"Vitamin B12 is necessary for adequate brain development,” said Dr. Eduardo Villamor, associate professor of epidemiology. “Deficiency very early in life or in old age has been linked to cognitive and behavioral problems, but it was not known whether it could be related to academic difficulties during school age. Grade repetition and s…

What’s Wrong With "Natural" Supplements?

Natural is not the same as whole-food based.

There is no FDA definition of “natural”. So all kinds of products can be labeled “natural” and still be useless or even harmful for consumers.

What’s worse, the FDA will leave it undefined for the time being. This is a problem for everyone using the term to label their products:

"A lack of a uniform approach to the [natural] term has resulted in inconsistent product claims, consumer confusion, and even lawsuits against food companies accused of misleading consumers." – Lorraine Heller, FoodNavigator-USA.com

The trouble with “natural” is a company can start with a natural source, like a plant, then heat it so much the enzymes die.

Or a manufacturer can add chemicals or other artificial ingredients and still call it “natural”.

That’s why the word essentially has no meaning.

Supplements only have to be 10% natural in order to legally make this claim. That’s why more than 95% of all vitamins sold today are synthetic.

This is what s…

"My blood work is always great."

“I have been taking BarleyLife for many years now. At the age of seventy-two, I’m still very active with playing tennis, biking and loving all the good stuff!

As a result, I could afford to lose some pounds, and BarleyLife is helping me with weight management. I take the capsules daily, and they have positively affected my health for some time now.

Every time I get my blood work done, it’s always great. My doctor takes a hair follicle sample from me at the same time to analyze and determine if there are any deficiencies. The results always show that I don’t need anything - vitamins, minerals etc. - because I’m getting everything I need from BarleyLife.” - Bill Sonne, Katy, Texas

Carotenoids Linked to Lower Breast Cancer Risk

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found high concentrations of carotenoids in the blood, specifically beta and alpha carotene and lycopene, were linked to an 18% to 28% reduction in breast cancer risk.

Those carotenoids are commonly found in vegetables like carrots, tomatoes and kale.

This study started back in 1989. Researchers looked at the blood samples of over 30,000 women. They were also asked to fill out questionnaires about their lifestyles to assess their baseline risks for breast cancer. In the year 2000, 18,000+ of those women returned to donate blood a second time.

By 2010, 2,188 of the volunteers had developed breast cancer. The researchers compared the blood samples of women who had similar cancer-risk baselines and found those participants who had the highest amounts of carotenoids in their blood had a 18% to 28% lower risk of breast cancer, when compared to the low-carotenoid group.

Additionally, the study suggested high levels of in-blood…

Do Pharmaceutical Drugs Cause Nutrient Deficiencies?

Have you ever wondered why we must replace various vitamins and minerals on a regular basis? Are there factors working against our health – some of which we are doing to ourselves?

The answer is, “Yes.”

The attached chart shows the various pharmaceutical drugs (Rx) or common over-the-counter aids used on a daily basis. Often these substances are used without regard to the possible dangers to our health.

Take a few minutes to review the chart and see if any of those listed on the left are part of your regimen. If so, check on the right side to see what is being deleted from your body.

The result may be a contributing factor to your lack of good health.

As an AIM Member, you can offset much of the potential damage by including various AIM nutritional supplements.

A good homework assignment would be to have the attached chart in one hand and the AIM Product List in the other hand.

"Her pain virtually decreased day by day."

by Dr. Bing-Shuo Chen, anesthesiologist and pain physician in Tainan, Taiwan:

As a pain physician in Taiwan, I have seen lots of patients who have suffered from wide varieties of acute and chronic pain. After years of visiting many specialists and trying all kinds of painkillers or other methods, some patients are still deeply devastated by their discomfort, and ultimately become seriously depressed because their pain has affected their physical strength, movement, mood, sleep and even their social life.

But the painkillers they are given do not ease their pain to any satisfactory level, and what’s worse, many pain medications, including a few major brand-name prescription drugs, have serious side effects, some of which may even be life threatening.

I was lucky enough to attend a speech on “Nutritional Healing and Health” by Dr. Yu-Shiaw Chen in Tainan, Taiwan in early 2015. When I asked her opinions about the treatment of pain, she introduced the Mag-nificence lotion to me. I knew al…

Making the Most of Menopause

Back in the 1960s, menopause was defined as a deficiency disease by gynecologists. Hormone therapy was deemed the cure.

Often referred to as the "change," "one of nature's mistakes," or "a sign of aging," negative attitudes about that phase of female life blossomed.

Such determinations have no reasonable place in the world we live today and should be forever discarded like bell bottom pants.

In reality, this natural transition in a woman's life is an individual experience. Some women undergo numerous symptoms either physical, psychological or both.

However, others experience few or none of the stereotypical menopause symptoms.

Whatever the circumstances, it can and should be embraced as a new beginning in a lifetime of experience.

At the same time, if there are some bumps in the road in the form of hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, there is natural help for both the possible symptoms of menopause and fear of the aging process.

The Health Benefits of Chlorophyll in BarleyLife®

Green barley juice is a rich source of chlorophyll. Life as we know it could not exist without chlorophyll.

The chemical structure of chlorophyll closely matches the hemoglobin in human blood. This means that by taking BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra, your blood will carry much more oxygen. Increased oxygen is beneficial for anemic conditions, respiratory conditions, mental clarity, and much more. This oxygen increase also has advantages for athletes.

Chlorophyll “increases the functions of the heart, affects the vascular system, the intestines, the uterus and the lungs. It raises the basic nitrogen exchange and is therefore a tonic which, considering its stimulating properties, cannot be compared with any other.” – Food Science for All, New Sunlight theory for Nutrition, E.
