A Simple Trick To Lowering Blood Pressure

Beet juice these days is getting a lot of attention for good reasons. This performance-enhancing beverage is also heart healthy.

Beet juice is a rich source of plant nitrates. Your body converts nitrates to nitric oxide, which naturally widens blood vessels and increases blood flow to your heart.

Since your heart is the hardest working muscle in your body, improving blood flow with RediBeets® helps to keep your heart beating strong and healthy.

Nitric oxide may help reduce high blood pressure, which can lead to stroke, coronary heart disease and heart failure.

A study published in the American Heart Association journal, Hypertension, indicates nitric oxide helps to lower systolic blood pressure.

Perform at your physical best and keep your heart beating with the help of RediBeets®.

P.S. Studies show that drinking beet juice can lower blood pressure. One such study published in Nutrition Journal found drinking a glass of beet juice can lower systolic blood p…

Can Beets Improve Athletic Performance?

Can beet juice make you a better athlete? Can beets enhance athletic performance? Following are five studies:

Study 1 - A study out of the Netherlands found drinking one dose of beet juice directly before athletic performance did little or nothing to improve athletic abilities. However, their broader research showed cyclists who regularly drank beet juice performed better in time trials.

Study 2 - Another study from the British Journal of Medicine tested female 5k runners who supplemented with beetroot juice. Those who used beet juice showed a 2.4% improvement in their performance.

Study 3 - A Florida State University study concluded beetroot juice enhances performance. A moderate boost from all-natural, non-drug, vegetable sources are a big deal. Beets are not medicine. They are not steroids. They are legal and a child can buy a beet at the store and eat it without consequence or side effect because beets are food.

Study 4 - The University of Sydney tested beetroot juice on rowers and…

Dr. Micheal Eades on Supplementing

"I'm a believer in getting most of what's needed vitamin and mineral-wise from food. And I'm also a believer that I'm an excellent driver. Yet I always purchase car insurance. I see a good multi-vitamin as the same thing - cheap insurance against any kind of deficiency." - Dr. Micheal Eades, M.D.

Are You Getting Enough Sleep?

Surveys suggest 38 percent of people hit the snooze button at least once every morning. This simple action can be enough to put your stress-o-meter through the roof. Why?

Being repeatedly jarred awake is as stressful to the brain as chronic sleep deprivation, since it repeatedly shocks you awake.

Instead of trying to sneak in more poor-quality winks in the morning, head to bed thirty minutes earlier and studies show you'll cut your stress hormone output as much as 37 percent.

Another technique to try is determining your Personal Sleep Quotient. Pick a bedtime when you're likely to quickly fall asleep. Make sure it's at least eight hours before you need to get up. Keep to this bedtime for the next week and note when you wake up each morning.

If you need an alarm to wake up, if it's difficult to get out of bed or if you're tired during the day, eight hours isn't enough sleep for you. Move your bedtime up by fifteen or thirty minutes the next week. Continue doing this…

Who Uses Nutritional Supplements?

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over half of all adult Americans (76 million) uses nutritional supplements.

A study by the National Health and Nutritional Center Surveys finds in the last five years, almost seventy percent of Americans have used dietary supplements.

The study goes on to say people who take nutritional supplements are more likely to practice other healthy habits such as eating nutritious foods, exercising, watching their weight. making sure to get enough sleep at night and regularly going to the doctor.

Do you put the odds for good health in your favor by using nutritional supplements?

P.S. A 2002 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, using thirty-six years of data, concluded that everyone needs to supplement, regardless of age or health.

Their study showed people who did not get enough nutrition were at an increased risk of disease, including heart disease and cancer.

By the way, not all supplements are created equal. …

BarleyLife® Xtra contains eighteen fruits and vegetables and comes in a green powder. Following is a quick rundown of those fruits and vegetables, along with some of their notable qualities.

1) Apple - Apples are a good source of vitamin C. It's one of the major reasons BarleyLife® Xtra has over one-third of your daily requirements of Vitamin C. Apples are also a good source of antioxidants (cancer fighters) and have been linked to lower cholesterol levels.

2) Cherries - Cherries have a high ORAC score. They reduce inflammation and contain lots of vitamin C as well as melatonin, a chemical that helps people sleep better.

3) Broccoli - Broccoli contains vitamins A and C and is a good source of calcium. Like cherries, broccoli is known for its anti-inflammatory phytonutrients (plant medicines). It's also a good source of beta carotene, an antioxidant (cancer fighter).

"Whenever I feel like I have eaten too much food, I take two to three Prepzymes and within about thirty minutes I can already feel I'm less bloated and the 'stuffed' feeling has disappeared.

A family friend, Joan, has also had success with Prezymes for a sinus infection. As suggested, she took five capsules three times a day without food in-between meals and within forty-eight hours her sinus infection was gone." - Karina Gerhardt-Strachan, Ashton, Ontario, Canada

Green Barley Grass - The Wonder Food

Barley grass is one of the green grasses - the only vegetation on earth that can supply sole nutritional support from birth to old age.

Agronomists place this ancient cereal grass as being cultivated as early as 7000 B.C., probably in the dry lands of south-western Asia.

In the West, barley grass was first known for the barley grain it produces; there is written mention of the grain as early as 2800 B.C. in Babylon. Barley is also a biblical food, mentioned no fewer than thirty-two times in the Bible.


Barley Grass vs Barley Grain

Green grasses are at their nutritional peak before they enter the reproductive cycle. To create grain, the plant must channel its nutrition up to the seed heads.

When grasses are harvested before they enter the reproductive cycle, they have a different chemical makeup from their adult, largely depleted, counterparts.

Young grasses contain about the same vitamins and minerals as dark green vegetables. When these grasses are juiced and concentrated, as in Barl…

The Truth About Chocolate Milk

A microbiologist who used to work for a major milk manufacturer, revealed each week a fleet of trucks would come to his plant, with the milk for the chocolate milk.

It was out-of-date milk, spoiled and soured, removed from the stores.

The plant would repasteurize the milk and add sugar, high fructose corn syrup and chocolate syrup, in order to hide the sour taste.

Then the repackaged milk is shipped back to the stores as well as the schools, so kids can get milk "that does a body good."

Why give your kids unhealthy, repackaged milk, when you can give them CoCoa LeafGreens™?

P.S. It also has three different types of cocoa, which has more antioxidants (cancer fighters) than blueberries, green tea or red wine.

Mix it with cold almond milk and you have delicious, truly healthy chocolate milk!

The Difference Between BarleyLife® Xtra and Vitamins

It's almost impossible to be healthy without supplementing your diet. Yet, half the U.S. population doesn't supplement. Those who do receive few benefits.

Your body has difficulty using synthetic supplements. They're created in a laboratory and manufactured in a factory. As little as 4 to 10 percent is absorbed by your body. The rest passes through the kidneys, making expensive urine.

What matters is how well your body absorbs the nutrients into the bloodstream. It's not what's in your vitamins - it's what vitamins end up in you. This separates a good supplement from the grocery store cheapies.

That's why it’s important to get your nutrition from food. The vitamins and minerals found in vegetables and fruits are easily assimilated by your body and in the right proportion. Yet, not all foods are created equal.

In this day of processed foods and depleted soils, it’s hard to get the daily nutrition your body needs. Fortunately, there is an answer. BarleyLi…

Why Take BarleyLife® Xtra?

My wife says because it's good for you!

It all starts with the Healthy Cell Concept®.

Health begins, is maintained, and ends at the cellular level. If your cells are sick, then you are sick. And if your cells are well, then you are well.

How do you make sure your cells stay healthy?

One way is to eat five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables every day. But how many people do this?

And even when we do eat the right foods, studies show they no longer have enough nutrition. One reason is because the way food is processed and shipped to stores. Another reason is because of cooking. When you heat food over 120 degrees, it destroys much of the nutrition.

The last reason most fruits and vegetables no longer have enough nutrition is crops are grown in depleted soils. The federal government was warned about this years ago by nutritional experts. Food today lacks most of the vitamins and minerals necessary for good health.

For example, an apple today has one-fifth the nutrition of a…

"I lost twenty-five pounds and found I had more energy."

"I'm seventy-four years old and in better health now than when I was thirty-five.

It was in 1975 that I was diagnosed with acute ulcerative colitis and hospitalized in Toronto for six weeks. They put me on prednisone and other corticosteroids and told me there was no cure. I didn't believe them.

Three years later, I ended up having a 5-week stay in a Nipigon hospital. Since then, I haven't taken any more corticosteroids.

In 1992, Leith Hill, who was my cousin by marriage, sent me some AIM products - for free! I thank God for Leith. Herbal Fiberblend was an answer to a prayer. I'm a Christian and I said to God, "I'm sick of being sick and tired."

I started taking Herbal Fiberblend regularly. The results were dramatic. I lost twenty-five pounds and found I had more energy. I kept on taking it, and I've been taking it ever since.

Not only has it helped me, I introduced it to my seven children as well as my twelve grandchildren. It seems that my fam…

Do Fruits and Veggies Make You Happy?

In the United Kingdom, researchers have found a correlation between a high sense of mental well-being and consumption of fruits and vegetables.

Thirty-six percent of the people who ate five or more vegetables a day had a high sense of well-being. Only twenty-eight percent of the people who consumed one or two portions reported similar upbeat feelings.

The researchers believe because vegetables are so nutritious, they play a large role in overall health, both mental and physical.

"Our findings add to the mounting evidence that fruit and vegetable intake could be one such factor and mean that people are likely to enhance their mental well-being at the same time as preventing heart disease and cancer." - Sarah Brown, co-author of the report 

How many fruits and vegetables have you eaten today?

P.S. In addition to keeping you happy, studies show fruits and vegetables also help reduce the risk of obesity, sickness and more. Yet most folks still don't consume enough of them o…

Your Immune System and BarleyLife®

A study out of the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, England found green vegetables, like green barley leaves, are the chemical source of signals your body needs to communicate, in order to destroy foreign and infectious materials.

The chemicals are called intra-epithelial lymphocytes.

When the researchers deprived mice of green vegetables, the mice had seventy to eighty percent fewer intra-epithelial lymphocytes, than the mice that were given green vegetable matter.

Vitamin A and iron play significant roles in promoting a healthy immune system. An iron deficiency can hamper immune-system response.

Vitamin A embeds itself in the mucous membranes and the respiratory tract is on the front line of the immune system. Both are needed for proper health.

You will find these nutrients in BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra.

"It's the best calcium supplement for him."

Fifteen-year-old Dante Pei of Lakewood, Colorado had always been a short and frail boy, who was frequently ill with headaches, stomach aches and fevers.

"We often took him to doctors for thorough physical examinations, even undergoing blood and skin tests for allergies," said his mother, Josephine. "All of the doctors said he was very healthy, just allergic to cats, pollen, and dust."

Josephine Pei felt this did not fully explain Dante's chronic problems, believing there must be other causes.

"A friend introduced us to a good doctor, who examined Dante and asked me a lot of questions about his diet, thinking he might be allergic to dairy products," Josephine said. "During a month without milk or other dairy, Dante had no uncomfortable reactions."

Of course, milk is often touted as an ideal source of calcium for growing boys and girls. Even though he stopped drinking it, Dante had been taking calcium tablets since childhood. However, Josephi…

20 Ways Barley Grass Meets Any Health Challenge

All life depends on chlorophyll to exist. It is super healthy and found in all green plants. Without chlorophyll, there is no life.

For humanity, the question is which form is best for human nutrition.

Two primary sources list barley grass as the best source of nutrition. The Bible as well as modern science both say the barley plant (not the grain) is the best source of chlorophyll.

A medical doctor and researcher offers the following summary of the benefits of an alkaline body system:

"An alkaline diet is vital to the stimulation of immune function and overall health. When our tissues become acidic, it can result in impaired function of major body systems, including skin integrity, organs, digestion and overall bone health.

Our enzymatic, immunologic and repair systems all function at their best when in an alkaline environment. The best treatment for a naturally healthy body is to adopt a nutrient-rich alkaline diet that will help our systems to function at optimal levels and st…

“My health has been radically changed by using AIM products.”

"The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, sang a hit song, 'Get Up Offa That Thing,' and that is what I would encourage you to do as well. What I mean is exercise made a positive difference in my health, and AIM products provide the supplemental nutrition to keep me healthy and energized for physical activity.

I've been a happy AIM member since March 2009. My health has been radically changed by using AIM products. Many people say on a continual basis my wife, Debbie, and I look so healthy, and they are surprised to find out our ages. I'm sixty and Deb is fifty-seven.

You may recognize me from the article, "Slow Down the Hands of Time," published in a 2010 issue of Living Well magazine. I related my journey to good health through the use of AIM products after having my first heart attack at the age of fifty.

I had a second, less severe heart attack in 2012.

However, I am excited to say that my cardiologist, Dr. Bonet, informed me on August 15, 2014 that the …

BarleyLife® Questions and Answers

What is BarleyLife®?

BarleyLife® is a fine green powder made from young barley grass.

The grass is harvested when it is about 10 to 12 inches high before the plant produces the stalk and grain. This is the time when the grass contains the richest and broadest spectrum of nutrients.

The grass is juiced and then spray dried at low temperatures to preserve the heat sensitive vitamins and enzymes.


Why is BarleyLife® good for you?

More and more scientists are finding inadequate nutrition is linked to health problems.

Every cell, every tissue and every organ in your body is dependent on the nutrients you get in your food. BarleyLife® is a whole-food concentrate. All whole-foods contain vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes and often chlorophyll.

People find it difficult to get the recommended nine daily fruits and vegetables. (How many fresh, uncooked fruits and veggies have you eaten today?)

BarleyLife® offers a quick and easy way to get important nutrients in your diet. One teaspoon ser…

A Question About Babies and BarleyLife®

Question: Paul, can BarleyLife be given to babies at 8 months old? I have a client whose baby has the sickle cell genes (SS) and so far he is fine but they are concerned about keeping him healthy. Would appreciate your very informative input, as usual.

Answer: I believe it is okay to give BarleyLife and BarleyLife Xtra to babies who are eight months old. We used to put BarleyLife Xtra in our son's breast milk. A small amount, but nevertheless, we did it. He was such a picky eater, even at that age!

BarleyLife is made from real food, so it is recognized and absorbed by the body. Some people, including babies, may initially have a detox reaction to concentrated nutrition, so keep that in mind.

Do You Know Anyone Who Gets Migraines?

If you are a woman, a migraine can be related to hormones. Renewed Balance® has helped several people get migraine relief.

I would also try magnesium Mag-nificence™ lotion or spray, on your temples and back of the neck.

Also, several people have testimonies of migraines going away after a twenty minute soak in Cell Wellness Restorer™, which contains magnesium.

P.S. I’ve also read that CoQ10, which can be found in Cellsparc 360®, increases blood flow to the brain and improves circulation, which might help with headaches.

The ginkgo biloba in GinkgoSense™ enhances cerebral circulation, which can only help with migraines.

I saw another testimony of a young woman who improved tremendously with LeafGreens™, CalciAIM™, Cellsparc 360® and GinkgoSense™.

Natural Relief For Stress

Stress can be useful in small doses. However, undue stress can be harmful long-term.

When we experience stress, the adrenal glands release cortisol, a hormone. It is designed to help your body utilize proteins, carbohydrates and fats to produce the energy to respond to whatever is causing the stress.

Supplements that can help you with stress include Composure® as well as Mag-nificence™.

These are helpful tools when combating stressful triggers.

When Should You Take Red Rush™?

Question: "I exercise early in the morning. When should I take Red Rush, since it takes two to three hours for it to kick in? Also, what if you tend to have low blood pressure, does it normalize it?"

Answer: Take it as soon as you get up. Two to three hours is optimal initially, but over time your body will store excess nitrate and nitrite, to be converted to nitric oxide later as needed.

With AIM staff, one shot of Red Rush™ has been observed to dropping systolic blood pressure by about ten points in three hours. Interestingly, we observed higher systolic numbers dropping more (156 to 123 or 33 points) and lower systolic numbers dropping less (103 to 96 or 7 points). The individual with the lowest systolic just dropped to the low end of normal and did not drop below 90, which is hypotensive.

Note: Everyone should monitor their blood pressure at least a few days a week, with an inexpensive at-home meter.
