Go ’n Grow Contest runs from September 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013 or Savannah, Georgia e u l a V Prize 0 0 5 , $2 $ The newly formulated AIM fit ‘n fiber™ apple-cinnamon has just been added to AIM Canada’s line of natural health products. Some Canadian Members are already familiar with the old fit ’n fiber, but this is a brand new product with a more effective blend of ingredients. Each level-tablespoon serving (9 grams) contains 7 grams of soluble and insoluble fibre primarily from psyllium (5.5 grams) and oat (2.7 grams), along with organic apple, organic aloe, gentian, alder buckthorn, beetroot, and cinnamon. This new formula provides even more benefits: fit ’n fiber “available soon” • Promotes healthy digestion • Relieves irregularity • Provides everyday fiber for maintenance • Supports weight management • Maintains a well-functioning colon • Cleanses and detoxifies • Aids in satiety • Helps to lower LDL cholesterol levels Let’s face it; most of us do not get enough fibre in our diets. Yet this low-calorie carbohydrate is vital for maintaining good health. By taking fit ‘n fiber, you have a healthy supplemental fibre intake to ensure you get enough in your diet. You need at least 26 – 35 grams daily. Most Canadians get fro from om 4.5 – 11 grams. Don’t be one of the ones missing out on this daily essential fo for good health. At the same time, fit ‘n fiber is the perfect choice for those who do not need the daily herbal effects of AIM Herbal Fiberblend, since the herbs, such as aloe and alder buckthorn, in fit ‘n fiber contain little to no stimulant laxative properties. This is one of the reasons for adding fit ‘n fiber to the AIM Canada list of natural health products, as it replaces FibreBalance as the alternate choice for a daily fibre supplement that cleanses the intestinal tract as it promotes regular bowel movements. Like FibreBalance, fit ‘n fiber is an ideal supplement for any weight management program. Call for availability! Canadian Members who attended the AIM simply the best 2013 convention in Boise, Idaho, were treated to four jampacked days of fun events, including a rodeo, a barbecue, and a tour of the AIM headquarters, as well as informative sessions on 2013 AIM Convention Webinar Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. MT a Sign up for webinars by e-mailing AIMWebinar@aimintl.com When you receive an e-mail response, follow directions to register for individual webinars.

Twenty out of a hundred women experience a UTI at some point during their lives, commonly followed by recurrences. Why? Most are treated with antibiotics that become bacteria-resistant over time. Ever since this treatment was first introduced, antibiotics have been killing a multitude of bad bacteria and all the while, strengthening them at the same time. Anyone who uses antibiotics also has their good bacteria—healthy intestinal flora—destroyed for the sake of the bad. You have a choice between this type of treatment and a natural health product that can prevent or effectively treat infections by giving bacteria the slip. AIM CranVerry+ does exactly that without any side effects and plenty of added benefits. Its trio of ingredients make things too slippery for bacteria to infect your body, so they are flushed out, as they should be, through urination. No urinary tract infections. The same goes for Candida yeast infections.

Cranberry fruit contains unique proanthocyanidin compounds that prevent infection-causing bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract, so bacteria can be eliminated without doing any harm to the body. 2. Juniper fruit acts as an antiseptic that helps relieve urinary tract infections and increase urine flow to flush out bacteria. 3. Mangosteen fruit contain xanthones that provide a wide scope of anti-bacterial activity. A 2013 study published in The Journal of Antibiotics shows that xanthone derivatives have high potential to be developed as future antibiotics. When it comes to protection from infection, CranVerry+ is the enemy of bacteria.

Oct. 22 Building relationships the easy way – Part 2 (634.101) Yoli Huron, AIM Star Sapphire Director ATP from Peak Endurance Energy courses through the body during a lifetime. The mystery of energy has been narrowed down to a currency found in an energy-carrying molecule—adenosine triphosphate (ATP). AIM Peak Endurance™ allows you to put more ATP in your energy bank. In a similar way of measuring how much money you have in the bank, your energy currency can be measured by how much ATP you have in your body. And just as your bank account tells you how much or how little you can afford, the balance in your “energy” account determines how much or how little you can exert yourself. ATP levels are the thing to keep in mind when thinking about how rich or poor you are in energy. AIM Peak Endurance™ is a solution for those who want to increase their energy levels by delivering PEAK ATP®, the only oral source clinically proven to elevate ATP levels within the body. Your body peaks in ATP production by the time you are twenty. By age seventy, only half of that peak amount is produced. The reduced production of ATP in skeletal muscle during your lifetime accelerates the aging process. Peak Endurance provides the ATP you need to improve your skeletal muscle strength and maintain lean muscle. Supplemental ATP helps to maintain the body’s ability to absorb nutrients, regenerate cells and tissues, and circulate blood to its periphery, all of which can be negatively affected as you age. Additionally, Peak Endurance can help you to maintain a good memory and efficient organ function, which relies on optimal energy levels. This blueberry-acai flavoured powder drink mix also provides six major electrolytes, six B vitamins, vitamin C, and only 1 gram of sugar from all-natural stevia and fruit extracts. Although great for athletic individuals, Peak Endurance is ideal for increasing energy levels no matter your age or fitness level. Even if you are not very physically active, Peak Endurance is good for maintaining your health. Everyone can benefit from the supplemental ATP found in Peak Endurance.

Register online at theaimcompanies.com today. See you online October 19! CoCoa LeafGreens ... not just for kids One of AIM’s new products has become a favourite among children of all ages. But what the kids don’t know is that CoCoa LeafGreens is also a beverage for adults who want the incredible health benefits of LeafGreens with the chocolaty taste of cocoa. Yes, you now have the choice of LeafGreens alone or with cocoa. You may or may not know that this natural y source of chocolate is actually healthy for you. You recognize that cocoa can make your feel good, yet you are also aware that uncontrolled eating of chocolate is not the road to good health. CoCoa LeafGreens puts the chocolate control in your hand with healthy cocoa that goes hand in hand with nutrient-rich LeafGreens— the leaf-juice powders of spinach, faba bean, field pea, and barley leaf juice powder plus broccoli sprout powder. So how is it that AIM decided to merge cocoa into a potent source of greens? The truth is that cocoa is a deceptively rich source of antioxidants. Antioxidants are your body’s defenders against free radicals— the main cause of damage to DNA, cells, bo body tissue, and organs—that le lead to rapid aging and the ad advancement of disease. AIM c chose three types of cocoa for e even more antioxidants and lu luscious, chocolate-flavoured gr greens. It’s time for adults to en enjoy the guilty pleasure of a chocolate drink that tastes gr great and promotes good he health at the same time.
