AIM Peak Endurance®, which has been very popular since the 14-ounce canisters were officially introduced in January, is now available in single servings in a 30-count package. The single servings contain the exact same ingredients as the canister with the added convenience of portability. The recommended serving size is two of the packets per day so put a couple in your pocket or in a purse in the morning and you are ready for the day ahead.
Mountain climber Martin Benning, an AIM-sponsored athlete, will not hit the mountain without his AIM products – AIM BarleyLife®, AIM Herbal Fiberblend®, AIM CellSparc 360®, AIM GinkgoSense™, AIMega®, and now – AIM Peak Endurance®. “Whether I am climbing at high altitudes or training at sea level, AIM Peak Endurance® is a key element in my success at 14,411 feet. Roughly one-half the elevation of Mt. Everest, Mt. Rainier (in Washington state) is the fifth highest peak in the continental United States. On two separate training climbs – one with AIM products and one without – I was able to see measurable differences in both my SpO2 saturation, which is the amount of oxygen absorbed in the blood, and in overall performance. Using a combination of AIM products including AIM Peak Endurance®, I was able to measure a 3 percent increase in the blood oxygen saturation at the summit, a more efficient heart rate, and an overall increase in energy,” says Benning.
“AIM Peak Endurance® elevates the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels in the blood, cells, and tissue. ATP is at the core of human energy and is critical for every function in our cells. AIM Peak Endurance® also enhances the delivery of glucose, nutrients, electrolytes, B vitamins, and oxygen, which I need to perform. Typical energy drinks are loaded with sugar and unnecessary calories. AIM Peak Endurance® provides the ATP, complex carbohydrates, potassium, magnesium, and B vitamins with almost none of the sugar,” concludes Benning.
Benning obviously is a fan of AIM Peak Endurance® because of the boost it gives him as an athlete. The key ingredient in the product is ATP, the energizer for the cells. Think of AIM BarleyLife® as the wood in a fire and AIM Peak Endurance® as the igniter. ATP begins diminishing at age 30 and by the time a person reaches age 70, the body is producing one-half of what it did at the younger age. AIM Peak Endurance® replaces the ATP lost through age, stress, daily life, and exercise.
While ATP is the major component of the product, AIM Peak Endurance® is a unique combination that does a body a whole lot of good – Peak ATP®, B vitamins, electrolytes, vitamin C, and phosphorus. All of them contribute mightily to the health and wellness as measured by the percentage of Daily Value (DV) in a 2,000-calorie diet.
ATP: It is the primary source of energy for every function that occurs within each cell of the body. When ATP is depleted, cells cease to function properly. Without ATP, says researcher Dr. Eliezer Rapaport, there is no life. ATP increases energy levels without boosting the heart rate, contrary to what occurs with caffeine, ginseng, or ephedra.
B vitamins: These vitamins are necessary for deriving energy from carbohydrates and for building muscle. Each of the vitamins – B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12 – in the two recommended daily servings of AIM Peak Endurance® supplies 100 percent of the DV.
Electrolytes: The AIM product contains five electrolytes. Most sports drinks, by comparison, contain only three and are loaded with sugar, normally 10-35 grams. AIM Peak Endurance® has only a single gram of sugar. Electrolytes conduct electrical currents, or nerve impulses, in our body. They are reduced through exercise and sweat. The electrolytes and their DV per two servings: Calcium, 20 percent; sodium 18 percent; magnesium, 12 percent; chloride, 12 percent; and potassium, 6 percent.
Vitamin C: Two servings of AIM Peak Endurance® supplies 100 percent of the DV. Vitamin C, the sunshine vitamin, helps maintain connective tissue, collagen, and bone health. It aids in healing wounds, supports the immune system, counters free radicals, recycles the body’s vitamin E, and can reduce allergy symptoms.
Phosphorus: The DV is 40 percent with two servings. Often referred to as the forgotten but necessary nutrient, it is essential for growth, maintenance, and repair of body tissue. It also plays a role in the proper growth of bones. The body uses phosphorus in protein synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism, enzyme activation, and as a component of nucleotides and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA).
AIM Peak Endurance® is one great product, whatever your need. As an athlete or someone who enjoys being physically active, it functions as an immediate and effective energy booster during exercise (rapid absorption or isotonic) or as a replenisher (re-hydration or hypotonic) after exercise. For AIM Members 30 years and older, the product’s ATP content serves as a replacement for the ATP lost as a normal outcome of aging. What your body loses daily, AIM Peak Endurance® replaces with the ease of two servings per day.
A common question with all the variety and applications of the AIM products is if AIM Peak Endurance® can be taken with other AIM products. The short answer is yes. Because of the product’s ability to enhance blood flow, it is logical to conclude that it will help distribute other AIM products throughout the body. However, in the case of AIM BarleyLife® products, combining the two products could result in the loss of some of the enzymatic benefits of the barley powder. It is recommended that AIM Peak Endurance® and AIM BarleyLife® servings be taken one hour apart.
How a product or the ingredients in a product impact a person varies. Judy Taylor is the wife of Dave Taylor, AIM’s vice president of finance and international operations. Judy was involved in an auto accident several years ago resulting in her having to leave her job due to the pain. She tried everything, but nothing worked as promised or hoped. Then along came AIM Peak Endurance®. She is now back at work, and her quality of life has been restored.
Says Judy: “Ten years ago I developed fibromyalgia as a result of a severe whiplash injury. Being both a type A personality and a registered nurse, I had every confidence that I could quickly overcome this challenge. My arrogance quickly evaporated in the face of chronic pain and fatigue, when limited to no treatment options. Despite my strong will, and a fabulous team of my medical doctor, my chiropractor, my acupuncturist, my Chinese herbalist, my massage therapist, and my loving family, I never got significantly better.
“This background explains why I view AIM Peak Endurance® as my own personal miracle! Within days of taking the product twice a day, I had a vast decrease in the amount of my daily pain. I still have challenges related to my fibromyalgia, as it is a multi-faceted disease, but with my pain under control, everything else seems easy. In my case, the cost of the product is more than paid for in real dollars by the decrease in visits to both my chiropractor and massage therapist. In ‘soft’ dollars, the increase in my quality of life is beyond value. Thank you AIM for your investment in bringing this product to market.”
