AIM Composure helps maintain your neuro health, especially in regard to dealing efficiently with stress.
The AIM Composure formula is made up of four herbal extracts and four whole herbs—alfalfa, marshmallow root, oatstraw, Irish moss, passionflower, shavegrass, slippery elm bark, and yucca. Many of these herbs contain flavonoids that are beneficial to overall health. AIM Composure may be taken during the day to help with stressful situations or during the evening to help relax. AIM Composure is 100 percent natural. There are no artificial colours, flavors, or preservatives.
The major cause of nervousness, restlessness, anxiety, and sleeplessness is stress. We need to be aware of how stress impacts our health.
A drop of water falling in the same spot over a period of time will eventually erode it. Stress is cumulative and if left unchecked, can disrupt any or every part of our lives.
Stress is how our bodies react to a shock or perceived threat. Stress can be useful in small doses. However, undue stress is above and beyond that which we were created to endure. It occurs when we work too much, sleep too little, struggle with family, work, financial, and social obligations, deprive our bodies of needed nutrients, or experience injuries.
When we experience stress, the adrenal glands release cortisol, a hormone designed to help our body utilise proteins, carbohydrates and fats to produce the energy to respond to whatever is causing the stress. Normally, cortisol levels are higher in the morning and diminish during the day allowing us to rest in the evening.
However, when stress continues through the day and creates a demand for increased amounts of cortisol, adrenal exhaustion and unnaturally high levels of cortisol can result in sleeplessness, blood sugar irregularities, high blood pressure, fat accumulation, exhaustion and more. The overall result is that stress depresses the immune system and opens the doors to numerous health issues.
AIM Composure is a special blend of the extracts and eight herbs that work together to help you in times of stress. You may find yourself more relaxed, and when combined with a healthy diet, experience a healthy sense of well-being.
The extracts are from the whole herb and spray-dried in a special process that uses water, not harmful substances. Then they are ground. The whole herbs are also ground. AIM Composure is 100 percent natural. There are no artificial colours, flavors, or preservatives, nor are there any added sugars, salts, yeasts, or fillers. And, the capsule is vegetarian. The following are the individual herbs that make up AIM Composure.
Affects: stomach, blood
Alfalfa is a source of chlorophyll, vitamins, including A, D, E, K, and beta carotene, and minerals, including selenium. It is especially rich in minerals, as it pulls up nutrients from root depths as great as 130 feet. It is also an effective overall tonic used for rebuilding the body after serious or prolonged weakness or illness.
Affects: lungs, kidneys, skin
Irish moss contains 15 of the 18 elements that compose the human body. It contains vitamins A, D, E, and K and is also high in iodine and calcium.
Affects: intestines, kidneys, bladder
Marshmallow root derives its botanical name from the Greek word altho, which means “to heal.” Humbart Santillo, in Natural Healing with Herbs, calls marshmallow root a nutritive.
Michael Castleman, in The Healing Herbs, notes that it is a digestive aid. It also has a calming effect on the body.
Affects: nerves, uterus, stomach, lungs
Research has shown that oat bran, and to a lesser extent oatmeal, may help reduce high blood cholesterol. Oats contain flavonoids, a number of minerals, vitamins B1, B2, D, E, and carotene, as well as wheat protein. It is a natural relaxant.
Santillo, in Natural Healing with Herbs, notes that oatstraw is good for the nerves, and Penelope Ody, in The Complete Medicinal Herbal, notes that it may help with depression.
Affects: nerves, circulation
Passionflower was used by Native Americans to soothe the nerves, and it has been used more recently for hyperactivity, insomnia, Parkinson’s disease, and nervous tension. Its constituents maltol, ethyl-maltol, and some flavonoids are potentially sedating, and another constituent, passi-florine, reportedly promotes calmness and ability to sleep. In Europe, passionflower is used in sedative preparations.
Shavegrass (Horsetail grass)
Affects: kidneys, blood, heart, and lungs
Shavegrass is a member of one of the oldest groups of plants on earth. The plant’s success can be attributed to its ability to grow in poor soil with minimum moisture. It has been used both internally and externally since the 16th century, usually as a powder. As an herb, the entire plant is used.
It contains flavonoids and minerals.
Slippery Elm Bark
Affects: whole body
Slippery elm bark was used by Native Americans as a skin ointment. It heals burns, wounds, and poison ivy. It also boosts the adrenal glands and respiratory system, and draws out impurities. Castleman, in The Healing Herbs, and Ody, in The Complete Medicinal Herbal, cite the bark as being good for digestion. It neutralises stomach acids.
The yucca is a cactus-like succulent common to the western United States and most of Mexico. It helps reduce inflammation and pain in joints.
