Selenium

Selenium

Selenium is an antioxidant mineral. It works together with antioxidant enzymes to fight free radicals.  Selenium activates the antioxidant enzyme glutathione peroxidase, which recycles glutathione.  Selenium improves white blood cell proliferation, and a selenium deficiency will result in a depressed immune system.  Selenium is reported to mimic the blood sugar regulatory functions of insulin in laboratory studies and to play a role in reducing the oxidative stress associated with diabetes.

Selenium may also protect against cancers and cardiovascular disease by increasing HDL cholesterol levels.

My Cholesterol Story

How I lowered my cholesterol

Her high cholesterol was lowered with AIM products

What would you do to lower your cholesterol by 81 points?

All that Tami Cole had to do was add AIM fit ’n fiber® to her routine.

“I have been using fit ’n fiber for about six weeks,” says Tami Cole, an AIM Wholesale Member from Raymond, New Hampshire. “My cholesterol numbers went from 286 to 205, and I have no more sleep apnea or acid reflux! My primary doctor and Ob-gyn were so pleased; they want to know my secrets.” {Research suggests a reduction of 11-17% cholesterol can be achieved with supplementation of 8-12 g of soluble fiber per day for 16 weeks. –Salas-Salvado J, et al. (2008) Br J Nutr 99, 1480-1387.}

Tami’s secret is common knowledge to tens of thousands of AIM Members: combine the AIM products with a healthy lifestyle and the results speak for themselves. Tami is one of a growing number of Members to achieve improved health with AIM’s heart healthy fiber product, fit ’n fiber. Packed with 12 grams of soluble fiber per serving, the fit ’n fiber formula is designed to cut down bad cholesterol, aid in healthy weight loss, and improve cardiovascular health.*

High cholesterol was one of several health issues that Tami was enduring.

“Back in March, I started to really do some research on nutrition and why I wasn’t feeling so good. My cholesterol was high, and I had the beginnings of acid reflux and sleep apnea. I was tired all the time and had trouble with cramping and bloating and difficulty with bowel movements.”

Tami’s search for help took her a lot of different places.

“I changed my eating habits and added more fruits and vegetables as well as cutting out white flour, sugar, and other simple carbohydrates and adding in whole or sprouted grain complex carbs, lean proteins, and beneficial fats. I also added some very good multi-vitamins and antioxidants.

“I must admit, I was feeling much better with just those changes, except I was still having trouble with hard stools and infrequent eliminations, possibly from my increase in protein. I had been using AIM Herbal Fiberblend® twice weekly for about six months, which did help some. I wasn’t real crazy about the taste, but when I tried the fit ’n fiber, I found the taste was great!”

fit ’n fiber and Herbal Fiberblend work great as a team, helping users to easily attain daily fiber recommendations. Herbal Fiberblend’s insoluble fiber works as a colon cleanser, and fit ’n fiber’s soluble fiber helps reduce appetite and lower cholesterol.

And Tami’s right. The fit ’n fiber does taste great thanks to a natural orchard peach flavor. Like other new AIM products – AIM ProPeas™ and AIM CellStar™ – fit ’n fiber is sweetened, in part, with stevia, a plant-based extract.

“I mix one scoop of fit ’n fiber with my AIM BarleyLife® Xtra every day,” Tami says, “and my stomach is not bloated and I don’t strain during my two to three bowel movements per day! It is a big relief to not have to strain to go. No loose stools or diarrhea – just normal elimination.

“I believe the improvements are from my lifestyle change in eating, but also the results of a healthy digestive tract and colon thanks to AIM products. In fact, I liked the products so much, I became an AIM distributor. Thanks for fit ’n fiber. It is such a great product!”
