CranVerry erry++ for urinary health and Candida relief AIM

CranVerry+, the new cranberry supplement from The AIM Companies, features the outstanding benefits of allnatural cranberries for urinary tract support and urinary health. Plus, AIM has added a Candida inhibitor in the form of the plant-based compound resveratrol. Two great ingredients make CranVerry+ a unique and unparalleled choice for urinary health and Candida relief.

The many benefits of AIM BarleyLife® John Watson, Preferred Member, Windsor, Ontario My family has been taking AIM’s barley powders for many years. The new and improved AIM BarleyLife® is even better—more energy and a better feeling of well-being. The new canister, when shakJohn en, is great. The next set of blood tests should indicate how well it is working in my system, and the last test indicated all was extremely well. We would not want to be without AIM’s barley product. It is the best way to start off your day.   Dixie Shaw, Royal Emerald Director, Gilmer, Texas AIM BarleyLife® is anti-aging. After taking this amazing green powder for almost eighteen years, you can see the difference. Staying young and healthy is one of my goals, and the AIM products help me achieve this Dixie every day. Thank you, AIM, for products that make a difference in our lives. Miriam McDade, Director, Centereach, New York When I was teaching junior high school students, I would come home in the afternoon, go to the mailbox on my way into the house, and fall asleep for about two hours before I ever got to open the letters. I was sleeping well at night but had no energy by the afternoon. I knew Chairman’s Club Director Dr. Yu Shiaw Chen and heard her speak on AIM BarleyLife®. She gave me a sample and literature, telling me that BarleyLife is food and not a drug. She urged me to try it. After a few weeks of taking it, I began to feel more energetic.

I was even able to stay up to watch Jay Leno on TV. I used to get sore throats and lose my voice several times during the winter. Miriam (The curse of any teacher.) I have not had that problem since I have been taking BarleyLife. My students come to class blowing their nose, coughing and sneezing around me, but I don’t get sick since BarleyLife strengthens my immune system Janet Pauly, Chairman’s Club Director, Keene, Texas I just wanted you to know that my jar of new AIM BarleyLife® arrived this morning. I immediately opened it and mixed two tablespoons in  a glass of V-8 juice. I mixed it with my little AIM hand blender that I’ve Janet used for years, and it mixed up just as easily as my other BarleyLife has ever done. But … it tasted much better than my old BarleyLife. It doesn’t have that bitter taste the other has. This new BarleyLife is a hit with me, and I predict that everyone will like it much better. I LOVE IT!

The AIM Companies’

Year in Review—2011 YEAR IN REVIEW—AIM’s 29th year in business was marked with a breakthrough in barley, a convention announcement that got everyone talking, and the resurrection of a revered product. As AIM looks forward to the next 12 months and the anniversary of 30 years in the Living Well business, we want to take time to remember the year that was and the exciting progress that The AIM Companies™ made. Bigger, better BarleyLife AIM’s flagship product transitioned to a new blend of barley grass this spring, offering more nutrition and more value per serving. The better barley appears in all AIM BarleyLife® powders, including traditional and BarleyLife Xtra, as well as BarleyLife Sample Packs and capsules. Convention in Seattle AIM celebrated 29 years in business with a reunion in Seattle. Over a week of special speakers, events, and activities, Members were able to connect and network and learn more about the AIM business and products. All aboard for a cruise convention At the Seattle convention, AIM announced plans to Sail-a-brate 30 years in business with a seven-day Caribbean cruise in April. Members were invited to register early and take part in a contest to earn a free trip aboard the cruise

liner. Registration remains open through January, and space is limited. New spokeswoman for a new generation Coinciding with the debut of her sitcom Reed Between the Lines on BET, 15-year-old actress Zoë Soul became part of AIM’s network of celebrities, joining the likes of speed skater J.R. Celski and mountain climber Martin Benning. Zoë loves nutrition that works, and the AIM products keep her going with her busy schedule of acting, dancing, modeling, and more. The return of an old favorite AIM’s cranberry supplement returned to the product lineup with a new formula promoting urinary tract health and inhibiting Candida overgrowth. AIM CranVerry® + goes above and beyond the old CranVerry formula and makes AIM’s cranberry product unlike anything else on the market.

Composure kept away my tension headache without feeling groggy Shared by AIM Director Tami Cole, Raymond, New Hampshire I have suffered from tension-related migraine headaches for many years. When I am stressed, the muscles in the back of my neck tense up, and I get a headache. Sometimes it is so bad I need to take medication and go to bed. My doctor prescribed the drugs Flexeril and Hydrocodone-APAP for me. I don’t like to take any medication, so I have only taken these when absolutely necessary. In fact, over the past two years I have eliminated most of my prescription medications and have made many lifestyle changes. One very positive change is using AIM’s amazing products. As many can probably relate, stress still creeps in and sometimes takes over. Recently, I had to do a presentation on AIM Herbal Fiberblend® about an hour from my home. I was nervous and a bit stressed, and I had the beginnings of a tension headache. I took a couple of AIM Composure® capsules, prayed, and headed out the door. By the time I got to my destination, I had no headache. I wasn’t tense, and most of all, I wasn’t groggy or spaced out. Sometimes the medication would make me so sleepy or unfocused that I couldn’t drive or function normally. Composure is not like

of proanthocyanidins. Anthocyanins are the water soluble portion of the plant cell that transmits pigments that appear red, purple, or blue. A recent study has shown that the amount of cranberry extract in one capsule of CranVerry+ has the equivalent anthocyanin content of seven eightounce glasses of cranberry juice. CranVerry+ contains 500 mg of CranMax® cranberry extract per capsule. The extract is derived from the whole berry, including solids, seeds, skins, and concentrated juices. Through clinical studies, CranMax has been shown to be absorbed in the lower intestines where anthocyanins are released and absorbed by the body over a twelve to sixteen hour time period. It takes thirty-four pounds of raw cranberry material to produce a single pound of CranMax natural cranberry. Candidiasis (yeast infections) Candidiasis is an infection caused by Candida albincans, a yeast or fungus that can infect the mouth, vagina, skin, stomach, or urinary tract. Oral infections are more commonly known as “thrush” and typically found in the elderly and those with weakened immune systems. Nearly 3 in 4 women will get a yeast infection during their lifetime. The ingredients in CranVerry+ have the ability to combat Candida yeast infections. While Candida on its own is usually not harmful to the body, an overabundance can cause a myriad of health concerns, including fatigue, weight gain, and toxification. We are at increased risk for Candida overgrowth due to the prevalence of processed foods in modern diets, the increased use of antibiotics, and

the rise in obesity and diabetes. Resveratrol is a naturally-occurring phytonutrient that occurs in several plants. Research completed in 2007 noted that the fungicidal effects of resveratrol demonstrated its potential to minimize candida infections. CranVerry+ contains 50 mg of resveratrol extract standardized to 50 percent trans-resveratrol. The resveratrol is extracted from the root of Japanense Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum). Studies have suggested the bioavailablitity of resveratrol from grapes is less than that of trans-resveratrol found in CranVerry+. Mangosteen The pericarp or rind of the mangosteen fruit has been shown to contain active components that belong to a group of xanthones (plant phenols) that have been found in studies to have a wide scope of antibacterial activity and kill Candida within twenty minutes of exposure. CranVerry+ contains 100 mg of mangosteen fruit concentrate in a 20:1 concentration per capsule. This means that it takes twen-

ty pounds of mangosteens to make one pound of mangosteen fruit concentrate Beta-glucanase Beta-glucanase is a carbohydrate enzyme that breaks the bonds within betaglucan, the main structural component of biofilm. Biofilm is a slimy protective shield that surrounds communities of bacteria, yeast, and fungi. Up to 60 percent of human infections are attributed to biofilm, which enhances the survival and reproduction of Candida. Biofilm is believed to contribute to Candida’s resistance to drug therapy. Beta-glucanase’s breakdown of beta-glucan reduces the viability of the biofilm, thus weakening C. albicans’ resistance to drug therapy. This can lessen the symptoms related to a Candida infection. CranVerry+ contains 100 BGU of beta-glucanase per capsule. CranVerry+ (5768E) comes in a bottle of 30 vegetarian capsules and sells for $19.00 US/16 BVP. A six-pack of CranVerry+ (5770E) sells for $108.00 US/96 BVP. Order yours today at 1-800-4562462 or www.theaimcompanies.com.

Bonus testimony from the Coles: I just had to send you this picture of my Labrador retriever, Bandit. As you can see, he really loves AIM Bar® leyLife . He is feeling so much better. He has non-cancerous growths on his chest, and when they get too big, he has a hard time breathing and he pants a lot. Since I have had him on BarleyLife, the growths have shrunk and he is more comfortable. He also has Lyme disease and is sometimes very lame, plus he is getting up in years, but he is walking around fine now even in the cold New England winter temperatures—sometimes running around in the snow like a puppy!

AIM GlucoChrom® chromium source changing by year-end The current chromium source in AIM GlucoChrom™ is no longer available, and AIM has decided to move forward with an exciting new chromium. GlucoChrom in its current formula will be available through the end of December. The new formula will provide the same benefits, and will go on sale when the current stock runs out. The new chromium source in Gluco­ Chrom is Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast. Unlike most chromium supplements, which contain synthetic forms, GlucoChrom offers a truly natural, bioavailable, and easily absorbable form of this trace element that the body recognizes as food. GlucoChrom (2767E) sells for $16.00 with 15 BVP.

Rescued cats thrive with AIM BarleyLife® Shared by AIM Directors Linda and Wesley Sanderson, Lumberton, North Carolina Our six rescued cats get a little AIM BarleyLife® in their breakfast and dinner daily. Their coats are beautiful, their teeth are white and clean, their breath is refreshing, and they are so healthy. All our indoor and outdoor plants stay so green and healthy. Can you guess why? They get a little BarleyLife once a week, and they look so good that people think they are artificial. Our entire household of living things depends on AIM to keep us lively, strong, and able to do all that the good Lord put us here to do. Wesley and I would not even want to try to survive this environment without our AIM products. We know too much to stop these miracles.

AIM Business-Building Tip:

Keep It Simple with AIM BarleyLife

®

nniversa hA ry 0t

Shared by Wayne & Joanne Jackson, AIM Star Sapphire Directors from Hillsburgh, ON, Canada If you are interested in promoting your AIM business but find it a little overwhelming or intimidating with all the products AIM has to offer, then this article is for you. Rather than talk about the benefits of AIM BarleyLife®, we wanted to share with you how to effectively promote only one product in your AIM business—BarleyLife. On April 30, 2011, we showcased BarleyLife in our exhibitor booth at the Erin Home & Lifestyle Show; our intention was to “get back to the basics.” When we first joined AIM in 1987, we had much success with one green barley product, so we thought if it worked before, it will work again. And it sure does because the show was a huge success for us. Here are a few tips: 1) Start by advertising to let people know you will be at your chosen venue. We had a small ad in the section of the newspaper that was promoting the show. It didn’t cost a lot of money, and newspapers are always looking for content. Contact your local paper to see if they

would like to do an article about your BarleyLife business. The woman who interviewed us about our Handyman Services in February for our local newspaper came back for another interview about our BarleyLife business after she started buying BarleyLife. It was great advertising for us. 2) Keep your exhibitor display simple. With the new BarleyLife poster displayed behind us, our table featured a couple of jars of BarleyLife—for people to see the product and read the label— and BarleyLife datasheets and sample packs, which we handed out with our Follow The Green business cards. We also had some “Nutrition That Works” insulated grocery bags, Healthy Cell Concept DVDs, and hand blenders on the table for sale. We played an AIM DVD on our laptop at the show, but you

to be bugged about things, so after our follow-up call we have left them alone. Most of them have already re-ordered. 5) Explain about alkalinity and how important it is for good health as most people are unaware of this. We kept hitting on the point that disease will thrive in an acidic environment but will not survive in an alkaline one. This really helps to get the point across as to why BarleyLife is important for optimal health—most of this information is on the datasheet. We had a lot of fun that day and much success. People were looking for us because of the newspaper article and our ad. It didn’t cost us much money to do the show, and it was well worth the effort. There are so many people out there who need our help and the help of the AIM products. BarleyLife and the AIM products shouldn’t be a secret.

The Jewish settlers became highly successful in the trade and shipping industry and influenced Curacao’s politics and culture. African Heritage The heart of Curacao’s heritage beats with the rhythm of African culture, and the majority of the island’s population consists of people of African descent. As well as speaking fluent Dutch, most of the islanders speak a 300-yearold dialect called Papiamentu, a Creole language that originates from a mixture of Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, and several African languages. One of the most enduring manifestations of African culture in Curacao is music. Tambu, an ancient form of music and dance, can be attributed to the island’s African heritage. From Europe to Africa, the diverse heritage of Curacao has blended to create a beautiful tropical culture. Shopping on Curacao Products available in Curacao make up an international buffet. Dutch Delft blue china, French perfumes, Italian silk, and Japanese cameras are all available, as are a mixture of items coming from any of these countries and others around the world. Visitors will find clothing, jewelry, leather goods, linens, liquor, and watches at island shops. The main shopping area in the city of Willemstad is mainly concentrated in the pedestrian-only streets of the Punda shopping district, along Heerenstraat and Breedestraat. You will find a little bit of everything in the shops of Punda and in the open-air markets where locals sell their wares. Check out Floating Market, 3

We’ll be cruising the tunity Sea oBahamas, f Oparpdowritand A, B, C islands—Aruba, h AIM! Get on Bo Curacao—and if you haven’t already researched each of the ports, here’s a brief look at the island of Curacao. Curacao is located about 35 miles off the northern coast of Venezuela and is considered to be both a part of South America and the Leeward Antilles. The island has a total area of 171.4 square miles, with Mt. Christoffel providing the tallest peak at 1,230 feet above sea level. The island’s topography consists of hilly countryside to the west and flat lands to the east. There are no freshwater lakes or rivers, but the island is surrounded by lagoons and bays. Curacao is a country diverse in heritage and ethnicity. In fact, forty-two different ethnic groups and various cultural heritages call this Dutch Antilles island home. European Influences The influence of Dutch culture on Curacao is evident throughout the island, from the centuries-old colonial buildings to the remnants of plantation life seen in the landhuizen houses. As the official language of Curacao, Dutch is taught in schools and spoken in business and government. Jewish Culture The first Jewish immigrants came to Curacao around 1659 from places such as Amsterdam, Europe, and South America, trying to escape the remnants of the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions. The Dutch Protestant environment on Curacao did not limit their freedom,

could also just make up a slide show with BarleyLife pictures, barley grass pictures, etc. for people to watch. 3) Advertise a “special price” only for the show and make up BarleyLife gift bags. Go to any dollar store and buy some two-for-a-dollar, green gift bags and some green tissue paper. We included a jar of BarleyLife, a datasheet, an acid/alkaline handout from AIM, and a measuring spoon in each bag with our Follow The Green business card stapled to the outside. When people purchased a gift bag, we threw in a hand blender and DVD. We consider doing all of this our “loss leader.” It was successful marketing, and all the people we sold to continue to take BarleyLife. 4) Ask if it would be all right to contact customers in a week or two for follow-up. We have found that it is detrimental to our AIM business to just call people out of the blue. By asking them ahead of time, they expect and appreciate your call. Keep your follow-up short and sweet. Ask how they are making out with their BarleyLife, how much are they taking, any questions they may have, how they can re-order, and that sort of thing. Most people do not like

New Market, and Old Market. Otrobanda, on the other side of St. Anna Bay from Punda, offers more shopping opportunities. Renaissance Mall and Rif Fort also located in Otrobanda offers over fifty stores and fifteen bars and restaurants, and is known for its nightlife. Saliña is the largest shopping area in Curacao after Punda. If you are on the hunt for souvenirs in Saliña, Saliña Gal-

leries is where the European boutiques are located. The official currency in Curacao is the Netherlands Antilles guilder (also called the florin), though U.S. dollars (USD) are usually accepted. Payment can also be made by credit card. Shopping in Curacao is not duty free. If you plan to spend a chunk of your Caribbean vacation shopping, pick Curacao to do it.

Peak Endurance benefits athletes Shared by Preferred Member Christine Miller, South Carolina I am very excited about AIM Peak Endurance®, especially after reading the datasheet and the comparison of Peak Endurance to Gatorade and PowerAde. Wow!

J.R. Celski sweeps American Cup 1 J.R. picked right up where he left off after the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, where he won two bronze medals. As the top skater for the U.S. team, J.R. dominated the races at the American Cup meet, winning at distances of 500 meters, 1,000 meters, and 1,500 meters. The competition was his first since the February 2010 Olympics. “It feels great to be back in the sport after taking a year off,” J.R. said. “It was a little intimidating at first, but I got out there and did my thing and I’m pretty pleased with my performance.” The World Cup schedule began October 21-23 with a meet in Salt Lake City, Utah, and continues through February.

AIM-sponsored short-track speed skater J.R. Celski swept the competition at American Cup 1, the first step on the road to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. J.R. finished atop the American Cup Overall Classification with 4,000 points. The second-place finisher, Kyle Carr, finished with 2,190 points. By virtue of his finish at the American Cup meet, J.R. was named to the roster for this fall’s World Cup races where he will represent the United States against the best speed skating competition in the world. “It felt great to be back in competition this weekend,” J.R. said in an interview posted on the US speed skating website. “I’m excited to be skating with the team again, and I look forward to making progress this season with them and hopefully we can win a lot of races.”

I drink Peak Endurance often because I have nausea many days due to hiatal hernia syndrome (HHS) and am often unable to eat. Also, my son who is an athlete and outdoorsman drinks it as well. I will never again buy Gatorade or PowerAde! Testimonials should not be construed as representing results everybody can achieve.
