The Easy Way to Get Your Greens

Lifestyle choices have a significant impact on a the health of a person, especially in regard to nutrition. Going green with AIM nutrition from the inside out makes perfect sense in our modern world. It's the healthiest option that a person can choose.

In the world of plants, the color of life is green. It's a healthy hue due to the chlorophyll that is the lifeblood of our planet's vegetation. This greenery produces the oxygen in the air that we breathe and provides a nutritious food source that can keep us healthy. AIM makes it easy to go internally green with a healthy variety of whole-food concentrates.

BarleyLife (powder and capsules)

When The AIM Companies introduced the juice powder of barley grass to the world in 1982, no one could have predicted the lasting impact of these unparalleled greens on people’s health. Forty years later, BarleyLife continues to provide a balanced source of natural nutrients from one of the most nutritious grasses on the planet. Most importantly, BarleyLife is a juice concentrate (not dried, ground grass) giving you more green nutrition that is fully absorbable and usable by your body.

The alkalizing and anti-inflammatory effects are only two of the many health benefits of going green with BarleyLife. The abundant supply of vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and enzymes in barley grass makes BarleyLife a bountiful food supplement. In fact, the number and types of natural nutrients in young barley plants have yet to be fully counted and identified, but you can count on BarleyLife greens to help maintain good health.

BarleyLife Xtra

Sometimes you want something extra, so one more green option is BarleyLife Xtra. Providing a sweet, fruity taste for children (or adults with a sensitive palate), BarleyLife Xtra packs an additional nutritious punch with the powders of eighteen fruits and vegetables.Each 4.5 grams of powder contains a 4-gram serving of BarleyLife.

Best taken on an empty stomach (thirty minutes before a meal or at least two hours after eating), concentrated BarleyLife and BarleyLife Xtra powders are easily digested by your body and absorbed at the cellular level.

LeafGreens (powder)

In 2008, AIM introduced another unique green product when it combined the juice powder of young barley plants with three other leaf-juice powders - spinach, faba bean, and field pea - to create LeafGreens. Broccoli sprout powder was added to the formulation a few years later. LeafGreens offers an alternate green supplement that provides distinctive phytonutrients, including sulforaphane, kampferol,and quercetin.

To make one pound of LeafGreens, forty-four pounds of leaves are required. This makes such a potent source of greens that only one daily serving is necessary. Like BarleyLife, LeafGreens is best taken on an empty stomach.

CoCoa LeafGreens

Not everyone appreciates the taste of greens, so a healthy taste of chocolate was added to create CoCoa LeafGreens. Along with a delectable flavor, three types of cocoa powders provide a wealth of antioxidants and flavonoids to the already nutrient-dense LeafGreens® mix. Over 700 healthy compounds are found in cocoa, supporting bone, heart, and cognitive health.

Those who simply cannot wrap their minds around the thought of drinking greens will enjoy the taste of CoCoa LeafGreens, especially when added to almond or rice milk.

ProPeas (powder)

You can even green your protein by supplementing with ProPeas, which provides a vegan source from field peas. Protein is an integral macro-nutrient required by all of your cells. This means your body needs large amounts to build and repair tissues and to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals as well as for the building blocks of blood, bones, cartilage, muscles, and skin.

The major source of protein in the North American diet is meat, which has an acidifying effect on your body pH. "An acidic body opens the door to disease" is a message that AIM has repeated over the years and for good reason. AIM greens and pea protein help promote a healthy, alkaline body pH. Add a scoop of ProPeas® to almond or rice milk and you have a tasty smoothie that supplements your body’s protein requirements in a healthy way.

With help from an incredible selection of AIM green food options, make your inner environment green. For the sake of simplicity, add any of your choices to an AIM Blender Bottle filled with your favorite beverage, shake, and drink to your health.
