Daily Essentials Plus One— Frame Essentials®
Inflammation is at the core of pain and can happen anywhere in the body. Aches and pains are often accepted as a natural part of aging. This is especially true when it comes to a condition like arthritis, the diagnosis of which includes a wide spectrum of more than one hundred disorders. According to a prediction by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), by the year 2020 about sixty million Americans will be affected by arthritis. Arthritis fuels the sales of pain relievers, even though using such drugs—whether over-thecounter or prescription—can produce numerous side effects. Is there a natural way to prevent or combat arthritis? AIM’s answer is a resounding YES! Start with the Daily Essentials—greens, essential fatty acids, and fiber—all of which combat inflammation. And then add AIM Frame Essentials ® as your Plus One for good measure.
Greens—A Daily Essential
A daily intake of AIM BarleyLife® or AIM LeafGreens™ provides an unparalleled, natural source of easily absorbed vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, phytonutrients, chlorophyll, and enzymes that feed and protect your cells. Greens are an essential part of your diet because they supply the nutrients required to balance your body pH, combat inflammation, and maintain good health.
Essential Fatty Acids—A Daily Essential
AIMega® is an organic seed-oil blend of essential fatty acids (EFAs) in capsule form for a convenient daily supply of omega-3 and -6. Essential components for the structure, maintenance, and function of your cells, EFAs must come from nutritional sources because your body cannot synthesize them. Along with a multitude of health benefits, EFAs are an integral part of the inflammatory response. Omega-3 decreases inflammation. Omega-6 increases inflammation, and as the modern diet is high in omega-6, most of us tend to be deficient in omega-3. AIMega provides a 2:1 ratio of these EFAs that helps to correct this imbalance and help fight inflammation.
Fiber—A Daily Essential
Fiber is an essential part of your diet, and AIM Herbal Fiberblend ®, AIM FibreBalance® (CAN), or AIM fit ’n fiber® (US) supplement your fiber intake and help to reduce inflammation. Not getting enough dietary fiber may increase levels of blood sugar, cholesterol, or triglycerides, which can result in inflammatory health issues such as heart disease or diabetes. A cardiologist at the Mid America Heart Institute, Dr. James O’Keefe stated, “Inflammation is the common denominator in nearly all of the diseases we deal with … Heart disease, diabetes, dementia—they’re all tied to inappropriate, low-grade, chronic inflammation.” In such diseases, high levels of C-reactive protein (CRP)—an indicator of inflammation—are present in the blood. A highfiber intake may lower levels of CRP, so supplementing your diet with AIM fiber products can help to reduce inflammation. “Soluble fiber changes the personality of immune cells—they go from being pro-inflammatory, angry cells to anti-inflammatory, healing cells that help us recover faster from infection,” revealed Dr. Gregory Freund, a professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
Plus One Frame Essentials
Along with the benefits of the Daily Essentials, Frame Essentials can be the Plus One needed to get you that much closer to helping prevent, combat, or ease the symptoms of many forms of arthritis, including osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis. Frame Essentials contains a combination of two types of glucosamine—sulfate and hydrochloride— plus methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and boswellia resin, providing a natural health product that supports healthy joints, where the pain of arthritis originates. Glucosamine is an essential element in the formation and repair of cartilage and other body tissues. As you age, your body produces less glucosamine, so supplementing with Frame Essentials can help to correct a deficiency. Naturally found in foods such as meat, seafood, fruits, and vegetables in trace amounts, MSM is a beneficial sulfur compound especially for reducing inflammation and repairing joints and tissue. By improving blood circulation, MSM may also help glucosamine molecules reach damaged cartilage. Frame Essentials’ third ingredient comes from the resin of the boswellia serrata tree. Commonly known as frankincense, boswellia resin has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries to maintain healthy joints due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, and analgesic properties. Research has shown that the benefits from boswellia result when, as in the Frame Essentials’ formula, the resin is standardized to 65% boswellic acid, which may support blood circulation, maintain mobility, and reduce joint swelling and pain. If you are living with arthritis or inflammatory conditions that create aches and pains, the Daily Essentials Plus One—Frame Essentials—can help at the cellular level. You are made up of trillions of cells, and healthy cells are essential to your wellbeing. Nourish them and feel the difference.
