There is a 3 in 4 Chance You are Not Getting Adequate Calcium

Calcium deficiency is a health concern at all ages.

Did you know the recommended amount is higher from the ages of nine to eighteen, than it is for those over the age of fifty?

Osteoporosis can affect children as young as twelve, which means adequate calcium is important during the early stages of bone formation and growth.

Have you had your calcium today?

Is This Our Number Health Problem?

Digestive problems may be the number one health problem in North America. One way to help maintain digestive health is to take care of our intestinal flora - the trillions of bacteria that make the digestive tract their home.

The Garden Trio® Infographic

In order to match the nutritional power of The Garden Trio®, you would need three servings of green vegetables to equal a single serving of BarleyLife®.

In addition, it takes twenty-five pounds of carrots to equal one pound of Just Carrots® and twenty-five pounds of beets to equal one pound RediBeets®.

How is that for concentrated nutrition?

How to Get the Most Out of BarleyLife® and BarleyLife Xtra®

BarleyLife® and BarleyLife® Xtra are made from young barley grass, which has been found to be one of the most nutritious plants on earth.

However, the best way to get the most out of this nutritious green powder is to make sure you are taking it the right way. The following are ways to help your body absorb it:
Take one rounded teaspoon, two times per day. Many people start with 1/2 teaspoon per day and gradually increase their serving every four to five days. Young children begin with 1/8 teaspoon per day and gradually increase to 1/4 teaspoon. Our six year-old son takes it six to eight times a day, when he drinks his juice. Since mixing BarleyLife activates the nutrients, try to drink it immediately after mixing it in water or your favorite juice. BarleyLife® delivers the greatest benefits when taken on an empty stomach. It's also best absorbed thirty minutes before or two hours after a meal. You may take BarleyLife® with other AIM nutritional supplements. Close tightly after op…

An Increase of Chlorophyll in BarleyLife®

"Over the last ten years, we have made significant strides in the harvest, manufacturing and quality assurance that have translated to a barley grass juice powder that is as close to raw as possible.

Maintaining and improving chlorophyll has been one of our goals in recent years. Composite samples of the 2015 harvest have shown an increase from 19 mg per serving to 224 mg per serving. An increase of any nutrient of nearly 18 percent is huge!

Chlorophyll is sensitive to heat and to maintain this improvement throughout 2015 feels awesome! This translates to a higher quality product that Members can see and feel." - Phillip Jermann, Biologist at The AIM Companies™ and Quality Assurance Manager

Who Needs Nutritional Supplements?

"There are many physicians who tell patients not to take supplements. Ideally, IF you lived on an organic farm, away from the city and other farms with their pollutants, raised all your own food, did not travel, avoided travel and chemical pollutants, had the attitude of a saint (no anger, guilt, depression or anxiety), exercised a minimum of an hour a day and were outside in natural light a minimum of an hour a day, with as much skin exposed as possible, you would need no supplements.

I doubt that 0.1% of people could possibly fit into this category. Commercially available food is highly polluted and of course, about 85% of food sold is even more highly processed, depriving it of many essential nutrients. Soil is also deficient in many essential nutrients. Thus, I think everyone needs some supplements." - Dr. Norman Shealy, MD, Ph.D.

Do you believe nutrition matters? Are you getting enough essential nutrients? Can you eat enough fruits and veggies every day to get what you…

Man No Longer Has Emphysema

"Folks often ask me, "How come you take BarleyLife? You're not sick."

I have to confess, I don't know that I've had a headache in fifty years and I'm eighty-three, so I guess I didn't do too bad.

But I have to share that when we first started with BarleyLife, a man called me and said, "Go see this gentleman, he's got emphysema."

He'd just been down to the doctor and they gave him a bunch of tablets.

I called him and I couldn't understand half of what he said. So I went to his house.

He had a big white towel in front of him - a towel you would dry dishes with - and he was making a loud hacking noise.

I sold him a jar of BarleyLife and within five days he called. "Hey, I'm out of your green barley product," the gentleman said.

I couldn't believe I was talking to the same person, who five days before couldn't get more than two words out of his mouth.

The man took three more jars and at the end of the month he…

Brown Recluse Spider Bite Quickly Heals With No Scarring

"Several years back my husband Wayne was bitten on the finger by a brown recluse spider. It healed up almost instantly after I started giving him BarleyLife and vitamin C every couple of hours.

His finger had turned black, and he had red streaks running up his arm after getting bitten by the spider. He was running a high temperature and the pain in his finger was so great he could hardly stand it.

His doctor told him that he might lose the finger, and at best he would have a deep hole in it.

In just three days of taking AIM's barley powder about every two to three hours, his finger was pain-free with no hole. The color of the finger had turned from black to a light pink.

The doctor could not believe what he saw because he knew that the venom from the spider destroyed the cell walls.

Now, Wayne has a hard time remembering which finger was involved – no scars, no pain, and no loss of movement. The AIM Companies has such great products." - Sandy Combs, DeBary, Florida 


The Differences Between Wheat Grass and Barley Grass

Wheat grass and barley grass have a lot in common. In fact, they are considered sister plants. Both are classified in the grass family, Poaceae.

They have hollow stems, flat leaves and produce multiple seeds from complex flower heads. Both are cereal crops commonly cultivated for their grains, but have also gained popularity as health foods in their young grass forms.

They both provide excellent variety of vitamins and nutrients, reduce inflammation and help to maintain body alkalinity.

Since they appear to be so similar, one must wonder if they can be used interchangeably. The differences are subtle, but they do exist.


The first difference, of course, is the taste. Wheatgrass has a sweet taste, while barley is a bit more bitter. Obviously, this distinction is a matter of, well, taste.

However, if you don't care for wheat grass, barley grass confers similar benefits, while maintaining its own unique flavor.

In either case, you're still drinking grass juice.


The Power of Green

"Scientific research has discovered that chlorophyll, the green-colored matter in plants, has almost the exact molecular structure of hemoglobin in human blood.

Chlorophyll in the plants we eat helps build healthy blood in humans by supplying the blood with oxygen, nutrients, and phytochemicals, which are compounds in plants that protect our body from illness and disease.

Through photosynthesis, plants convert sunshine into chemical energy.

Photosynthesis is the process by which plant cells make carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of chlorophyll and sunlight.

Many scientists believe that photosynthesis is the most important chemical reaction in nature, because man depends upon plants to gather the sunshine energy and make available to use as food.

A plant only uses about one-sixth of the sun energy it captures to sustain itself. The remaining five-sixths is stored in chemical bonds, ready for human metabolism to break it down into useful energy.

If You're a Parent with Small Children...

Four Year-Old Brady Eilers
A study of children below the age of four found fewer than twenty-five percent were eating the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables daily.

This study counted french fries as a vegetable. As a result, most children require dietary supplementation - which is not limited to vitamins and minerals, but also includes phytochemicals and plant medicines.

Do you have children? Is it a challenge to get them to eat their fruits and veggies every day?

Maybe BarlyLife® Xtra is a way to help you solve this challenge.

Vitamin A Can Help You Sleep at Night

Many people are aware that Vitamin A is good for eye and skin health. But did you know this fat soluble vitamin is also good for helping you sleep at night?

Vitamin A plays an essential role in helping us fall asleep on time, get high quality sleep, and sleep throughout the night.

One sign of low levels of Vitamin A is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, even though you control your exposure to blue light.

Another symptom of low Vitamin A levels is night blindness. If you have trouble while driving at night, yet can easily see during the day, you may be deficient of Vitamin A.

One good source of Vitamin A is carrots. A quick and easy way to get your carrots every day is Just Carrots®. To learn more, Click Here.

P.S. Just Carrots® is made from one hundred percent natural carrot juice, minus the fiber.

It takes twenty-five pounds of raw carrots to make one pound of Just Carrots® powder. The powder mixed with water is equivalent to 4.5 oz of freshly squeezed juice.

CellSparc 360® Sparks Your Heart and More

The hardest-working organ in your body is your heart. Coenzyme Q10 helps your heart work optimally. One way to help your heart stay strong and healthy is by taking CellSparc 360®.

Heart Health

The key ingredient in CellSparc 360 is coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) - a vitamin-like nutrient essential for energy production in the cells of your body. Your heart requires more energy than any other organ. CoQ10 improves the flow and transformation of energy in the muscular tissue of your heart.

Most of the research conducted on coenzyme CoQ10 has focused on its benefits for patients with heart disease. Nine placebo-controlled studies confirm both the effectiveness and safety of supplemental CoQ10.

Treated with CoQ10 for high blood pressure, the patients of a 1994 study experienced improvement in their quality of life, further enhanced by a reduction in their need for high blood pressure medication as well as a decreased financial burden associated with the cost of these drugs.

Synergy is a Key to Effective Nutrition

Synergy, not quantity or amounts, is one of the keys to effective nutrition. (Synergy is the interaction among the hundreds of nutrients contained in vitamins and minerals, all working together.)

Functional nutrition research shows extremely small amounts of a wide array of natural nutrients is usually more beneficial, than large amounts of isolated nutrients. The body more easily uses them.

There is also a cooperation between certain vitamins and minerals, promoting absorption. Correcting a deficiency in one vitamin or mineral requires the addition of others, not simply replacement of the deficient one.

This is why the eighteen fruits and vegetables in BarleyLife® Xtra were chosen, because they work even better together.

Synergy, not necessarily quantity, is one of the keys to effective nutrition.

Woman with Multiple Sclerosis Feels Stronger in 2 Days

"My name is Lorraine S. Grove and I have multiple sclerosis. I was lying in bed fairly regular; the fatigue was really bad, no energy. My husband was doing all the cleaning, cooking and laundry. He was driving me wherever I wanted to go. I was too tired to do anything.

At this point I wasn't sure what I was good for anymore. Depression was always around the corner. I could not take the Multiple Sclerosis medication. My body was not accepting it at all. I was on depression medication for many years prior to finding out about having Multiple Sclerosis.

Then in January, I met a very special lady named Melanie. She was a Member of The AIM Companies. We got to talking about the health and wellness products, and it sounded very interesting, but I had tried so many different types of health and good-for-you stuff, so I wasn’t too interested at this time. But we did have an enjoyable time visiting.

Don, another person I knew, came by my home three days later with products in hand.

Little Baby Girl Loves BarleyLife® Xtra

"I've been faithfully taking AIM's barley grass product since I was seven years old. I'm now twenty-nine years of age and have a beautiful little girl of my own, Ana Leigh.

Ana loves BarleyLife Xtra!

I want to share her story because I find it particularly unusual. Ana loves BarleyLife Xtra, but hates bananas, peaches, plums, yummy yogurt and pretty much anything else I offer her.

I have to fight her to get her to take just a couple of bites of 'normal food', but when she sees the spoon of BarleyLife Xtra, she opens up wide and makes funny 'mm hmm' noises like it's the best taste in the world.

I usually give it to her in a paste of about half a teaspoon, with just enough water to make it moist. I have been giving it to her since she was four months old.

I have to add that she has been very healthy. Before I had Ana, on many occasions I offered some of my "mom" friends BarleyLife Xtra as an easy way to get their children to eat some veg…

"Within eight to fifteen days, it cleaned me out in a very, very good way. I lost eight and a half pounds of you-know-what."

"I suffered with horrible, horrible gastrointestinal issues my entire life. I found no help through conventional medicine.

I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome. I can remember being in the fetal position, in so much pain all the time. I was bloated, I was constipated, but I had no idea how constipated that I really was.

About eight years ago, I was driving and got rear-ended by a fire truck. It sounds worse than it is, but the paramedics rushed out, put me in a neck brace, put me in the car, and rushed me to the hospital. I’m in this neck brace and the doctor did all these x-rays on me.

He came back and said, "Well Christine, I have some good news and I have some bad news. The good news is: you're not paralyzed."

Then he showed me this x-ray and said, "Do you see all that cloudy area going on in there? You have over three-and-a-half feet of backed up stool in you."

And it was clear to me now why I had been in so much pain.

My grandmother-in-law h…

Inflammation, Sleep Problems and BarleyLife® Xtra

A meta-analysis, published in Biological Psychiatry, reported the findings of 72 journal articles, which recorded the sleep habits and inflammation markers of over 50,000 sleepers.

Those with sleep problems, such as people who don't get enough sleep, as well as those people who get too much sleep, had elevated levels of inflammatory markers [C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6)].

Inflammation is an immune system response that helps your body fight off infection and other illnesses. However, if the inflammation doesn't go away once it has done its important job, then it becomes detrimental to your health.

For example, chronic inflammation has been linked to heart disease, gut health, joint pain, and more.

If you are someone with sleep issues, there is a good possibility you may be suffering from chronic inflammation. This means poor quality of sleep may also be causing other health problems.

There is also evidence inflammation may be the root of some sleep problem…

Made from the raw, leaves of the young barley plant, BarleyLife® has helped countless people take control of their health through nutrition.

This green superfood is packed with nutritional gems such as beta-carotene, folate, superoxide dismutase, vitamin K, lutonarin and saponarin. But one of the most notable and popular aspects of BarleyLife® is its chlorophyll, straight from the leaves of pristine barley grass.

Chlorophyll is a powerful antioxidant that helps put the kibosh on unhealthy chronic inflammation. It has also been shown to aid in detox, recovery and odor control. Every serving of BarleyLife® currently contains 19 mg of chlorophyll.

However, third-party laboratory testing has confirmed that BarleyLife® now yields 22.4 mg of chlorophyll per 4-gram serving.

This is due, in part, to advances in technology, as well as continued efforts by The AIM Companies™ to improve on …
