There is no greater gift than the gift of life. It's why we wear helmets when cycling and seat belts during car trips and coats in the winter.
Yet, we tend to overlook the impact on our lives of bad nutritional habits.
A poor diet, high blood pressure, high body-mass index, high cholesterol and low physical activity comprise fifty percent of the leading causes of death in the United States. These are deaths that potentially could have been avoided, especially if given the gift of good nutrition.
On the other hand, a 2014 study found people who ate seven or more servings of fruits and veggies daily reduced their risk of death by 42 percent.
In a separate study (published in Clinical Nutrition), people who ate more than five servings of fruits and vegetables tended to live at least two years longer than those who did not. Nutrition is the gift that extends and improves the greatest gift we have - life.
This holiday season, you can give the gift of good health and proper nutrition through BarleyLife, which provides the vegetable nutrition of a whole-food source in a convenient, affordable way. It also helps control inflammation, which has been linked to many illnesses and chronic diseases.
As for Herbal Fiberblend, it not only provides the health benefits of fiber - regularity, bowel health, cholesterol and blood and weight management - it also provides the added benefits of cleansing herbs that work synergistically to maintain and promote bowel and overall health.
That's simply the beginning of the many whole-food nutritional supplements from The AIM Companies.
So make sure to give your loved ones this gift of health this holiday season. They'll never stop thanking you.
