Vitamin D powerhouse in AIM’s Veggie D

An exciting new ingredient and an exciting new taste have come together to form the new Veggie D™ from The AIM Companies! A vitamin D powerhouse, Veggie D derives its D from an all-natural source never before found in a beverage: shiitake and button mushrooms. Combined with a blend of twelve vegetables and lycopene-rich tomatoes, […]

Oxygen levels and pH

Oxygen levels in the body are directly related to pH.  Increasing pH from 4.0 pH to 5.0 pH increases oxygen to the cells by ten fold. Each whole number increase by tenfold again, so 4.0 pH to a 6.0 pH increases oxygen by 100 times and raising pH from 4.0  pH to 7.0 pH increases […]

Soda and an acidic pH

In order for our body to work at it’s best, we must maintain body fluids in the slightly alkline range, 7.1 to 7.5 pH. The pH scale goes from 0 (totally acid) to 7 (neutral) to 14 (totally alkaline). Most degenerative diseases are linked to acidity, including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, gall and kidney […]

pH and AIM BarleyLife

Our cells cannot function efficiently if the pH (which measures acidity and alkalinity) is not in a narrow range. Many foods are acidifying, and when we consume too many of them, the acid-alkaline balance is upset. Green barley grass contains the alkalizing minerals potassium, calcium, and magnesium. These minerals neutralize acidic materials and can help maintain a healthy acid-alkaline balance. In […]

Folic Acid

Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that occurs naturally in food. Folic acid is a form of folate that is found in some foods and also in supplements. Folic acid helps produce and maintain new cells—it is needed to make DNA and RNA, the building blocks of cells. This is especially important during periods of rapid cell division and growth […]

Beta-carotene

Vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin, plays an important role in vision, growth and development, immune functions, red blood cell production, reproduction, and the development and maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and mucous membranes. Vitamin A can be found in two main forms in foods: • Retinol from animal and synthetic sources• Carotenes that are synthesized by plantsThe vitamin A […]

Alkalinity (pH)

Green barley grass has a strong alkalizing effect, which helps keep the ratio between acidity and alkalinity in our body fluids balanced. Our cells cannot function efficiently if the pH (which measures acidity and alkalinity) is not in a narrow range. Most processed foods are acidifying, and when we consume too many of them, the acid-alkaline balance is upset. Green […]

Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)

AIM BarleyLife: Green barley leaves contain a multitude of enzymes. Enzymes are essential for the thousands of chemical reactions that occur throughout the body, including the absorption of digested nutrients. The enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) is a powerful antioxidant thought to slow the rate of cell destruction by providing a defense against free radicals, especially the most prolific […]

Lutonarin and Saponarin

Lutonarin (7-O-GIO) and saponarin (7-O-GIV) serve as very powerful antioxidants. Lutonarin is the superior antioxidant of the two and is found in high concentrations in AIM BarleyLife. Research in New Zealand has observed that lutonarin and saponarin content in barley leaves increases with UV exposure. This indicates they may provide antioxidant protection against environmental stresses.
