Fiber

Your digestive health is very important and fiber plays a big role in keeping your digestive health at its best. Fiber is important for your body in several ways. (1) Fiber helps to prevent disease, (2) Fiber helps to relieve constipation and hemorrhoids, and (3) Fiber helps to control weight. Your digestive health is important if you are to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Fiber helps to relieve and avoid constipation, which can be major upset in your digestive health. Fiber has the ability to absorb huge amounts of water from the bowels, which in turn makes stools softer and much easier to pass. You may want to increase the amount of fiber in your diet if you are trying to improve your digestive health. When you first increase the amount of fiber in your diet you will notice that there is a difference in your stool, however after a few days of increasing the fiber in your diet you will notice no difference. Increasing the fiber in your diet will improve your digestive health by relieving constipation as well as make it easier to pass your stools, putting you at less a risk for hemorrhoids.

Fiber is a term for all parts of plant foods the body cannot digest. Found in all fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains and legumes, fiber travels through the body without breaking down. It passes through the body and makes a quick exit. Though fiber has no calories and is not absorbed by the body, it has a variety of health benefits, such as assisting in weight loss and constipation and helping regulate various gastrointestinal disorders.

There are two types of fiber, soluble and insoluble.

Soluble Fiber–Soluble fiber forms a gel in the digestive tract, which slows digestion and prevents the body from absorbing too much starch and sugar.  Soluble fiber is the type commonly found in over-the-counter laxatives. Dried beans, peas, oats, apples, citrus fruits, carrots and barley are good sources of natural soluble fiber.

Insoluble fiber–absorbs water, creating bulkier stool. It also helps the bowels move quickly through the digestive tract, which is helpful to people who suffer from constipation or irregular bowel movements. Insoluble fiber is found in whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts, various vegetables and peels of fruit, such as apples, blueberries and grapes.

AIM Fit n Fiber and AIM’s Herbal FiberBlend are 2 great choices.  Herbal FiberBlend helps to clean ALL FECAL MATTER FROM THE COLON WALLS AND KILLS PARASITES, WHICH ARE 2 MORE CAUSES OF INTESTINAL ISSUES. I have a hand out for more information.

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!”

{This testimonial cannot be construed as representing results everybody can achieve. Tami received product for her endorsement.}
