AIM BarleyLife ® nutrition for a balanced diet.

Barleylife for a balanced dietEating a balanced diet remains a challenge for both adults and children. Experts estimate that only one in five youths consume the minimum five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, and 16 percent of youth do not meet any of the recommendations outlined in the standard food guide pyramid. Consumers of all ages are being urged to increase their intake of leafy green vegetables.1

AIM BarleyLife ® is a convenient way to make sure that you receive the necessary vitamins and minerals that experts recommend. The leaves of the green barley plant are literally bursting with important vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants that are naturally occurring and balanced by nature. Nearly everyone, adults and children, can benefit from AIM BarleyLife®.

Barleylife rich in vitaminsRich in vitamins A and B

Beta-carotene is a precursor for vitamin A, and the beta-carotene content found in AIM BarleyLife ® is substantial. Just one serving of AIM BarleyLife ® provides nearly two times the amount of beta-carotene found in raw carrots, and eight times that found in raw broccoli. Vitamin A is essential for good eye health, as well as cardiovascular and immuno health. Vitamin A in its natural form as beta-carotene is especially desirable for its antioxidant properties since it helps to prevent harmful free radical damage in the body.

AIM BarleyLife ® also contains the following B-complex vitamins:

Increasing importance of vitamin K

Barleylife Vitamin KOften overlooked in the vitamin or supplement aisle, is vitamin K (also known by the scientific name, phylloquinone). Increasing evidence now shows that diets containing ample amounts of vitamin K may help to ensure adequate bone density and protect against osteoporosis and hip fracture in postmenopausal women. Vitamin K also plays a key role in fetal development and is needed to maintain proper blood clotting.

In 2003, a Tufts University researcher published a detailed profile of vitamin K by asking some critical questions about the association between dietary vitamin K intake and bone mineral density. The results showed that the vitamin K concentration in most foods is very low,2 and that many adults aged 18 to 44 may be getting far less vitamin K than they need3 to protect against osteoporosis and hip fracture.

A typical serving of AIM BarleyLife ® offers an abundant source of vitamin K, containing 100% of the recommended daily amount. However, those who take blood-thinning medications such as Coumadin ® should exercise caution since vitamin K supplementation can impact the effectiveness of such medications. As with any dietary supplement, it is best to consult with your health care practitioner when adding something new to your daily regimen.

Minerals essential to good health
