AIM BarleyLife Xtra for great tasting nutrition
Tastes and preferences in food can be a nutritionist’s nightmare, especially given the wide availability of highly refined and processed foods that seem to line grocery store shelves.
We try our best, but if you’ll be honest, how can we compete with cream-filled chocolate cookies and artificial fruit drinks laden with sugar? Well, hold on, because now there is help.
Introducing AIM BarleyLife® Xtra!
Completely new from AIM, this great tasting cherry-apple flavor green juice drink has been designed especially to appeal to the taste buds of young children. It’s ideal for those from 4 to 10 years of age. It tastes so good, whether you are young—or just ‘young at heart’—you may want to give it a try!
AIM BarleyLife® Xtra is a cherry-apple flavored green barley juice drink mix that is naturally sweet—and contains no synthetic sugar, artificial coloring or preservatives. One 6 gram serving delivers the same amount of green barley that adults receive from 5 grams of AIM BarleyLife®. The “Xtra” is that it has natural fruit and vegetable flavorings that will appeal to even your most finicky young eater!
In this brand-new “Xtra” formula, AIM has combined our well-known green barley with the natural powders of apple, cherry, raspberry, cranberry, strawberry, pineapple, lemon, lime, orange, broccoli, tomato, carrot, grape, kale and acerola cherry, to provide the natural flavorings that will appeal to children. In particular, the acerola cherry flavor stands out and gives the sweet taste that kids will really like. The natural sweetening herb, Lo Han, is used to give AIM BarleyLife® Xtra its naturally sweet appeal—without the use of refined sugars or artificial sweeteners.
Makes good nutrition oh, so sweet!
Most nutritionists recommend that for children age 4 to 6, no more than 130 to 230 daily calories come from sugar and that for kids 7 to 10 years of age, no more than 165 to 330 calories per day come from sugar. The traditionally sweet-tasting foods that are offered to children are extremely high in processed (refined) sugars. For example, one cup of artificially flavored fruit-aide beverage may contain as much as 6 teaspoons of refined sugar (384 sugar calories). One chocolate chip cookie can rank at 3 teaspoons of sugar (192 sugar calories).
Adults are not exempt! Have you ever had that craving for something sweet during those mid-afternoon doldrums? One serving of AIM BarleyLife® Xtra offers just ¼ to ½ teaspoon of natural sugar (16 to 32 sugar calories) from real fruits and veggies, (amount varies depending upon age and serving size). AIM BarleyLife® Xtra can help you to keep a careful reign on the daily sugar content of your family’s diet. For a sweet healthy snack reach for AIM BarleyLife® Xtra.
Filled with the nutrients kids really need for healthy growth AIM BarleyLife® Xtra, not only tastes good, but it delivers the vital nutrition your child needs. Children in western society are specifically in need of the following nutrients—all of which can be found in AIM BarleyLife® Xtra:
Vitamin C — for the formation of connective tissue and collagen, which is important for healthy muscle, bones, teeth, tendons, and skin.

Chromium, manganese, and other trace elements — to help with digestion and to complete the mineral content that is deficient in today’s highly
Vitamin K — which can be especially low in infants and is necessary for healthy development.
Trace amounts of iron, zinc, and protein that children need to maintain their high activity levels.
