Vimco Wellness Success Story

Collagen Coffee Review

I am 24 years old and played competitive soccer my entire life, up and through college. I had my first knee surgery when I was 14, and my second and third when I was 18. All three dealing with reconstructive ACL surgery. These surgeries caused me to have early arthritis and barely able to walk long distances without downing a couple of Advil. 

Before my injuries, I loved to just run miles and miles. I would run 6-7 miles every day after school. After I had my surgeries, I could barely run a mile without icing and taking Advil.

When I was playing college soccer, I took 4 Advil before and after every game just to get through, but I was still miserable.

I graduated college and tried to find everything possible to help heal and alleviate my arthritis, but nothing was working. 

Until I found y’all!

I won your giveaway back in the summer and I was so excited! I heard about the wonders of collagen and how it helped arthritis and joint health. I was a little skeptical but was willing to give it a try!

I’ve been using your products since July and I am back running again multiple miles a day without having to take Advil, icing my knees, and without taking days off!

Yesterday I ran 6 miles in a row! And I had no pain afterwards or today! The first time that happened since before my first knee surgery when I was 14! 

I wanted to thank you! I never thought I would run long distances again. But your coffee has honestly changed my life. Not only does it fuel me to deal my sweet kindergartners all day as a teacher, but it fuels me to live my life again, one I thought I’d never have back after having knee surgeries.

So, thank you for your company, your products, and your mission!

Why you should be consuming activated charcoal before bed

Charcoal Lemonade for detox and better sleep

As activated charcoal makes a name for itself in the health and wellness space, you may be unsure about when and how to incorporate it into your day. I personally do not like taking it in capsule form, primarily because it isn’t absorbed into the body as quickly as I would like and I don't love taking pills.

That is why my wife and I created a better and more delicious alternative. Vimco Wellness Instant Charcoal Lemonade. All the benefits combined into a classic glass of refreshing lemonade!

The main reason I drink my charcoal before bed is because I love a great night of sleep more than most things on this planet! Studies have shown that toxins in the body can cause inflammation in your brain. When there is inflammation in your brain, it then makes it harder for you to fall asleep. This cycle will repeat itself night after night and cause you to have trouble falling asleep and ultimately leave you feeling tired when you wake up. If you have ever felt like you are in a slump or tired all the time, it may be due to an inflammation overload.

One source of these inflammatory toxins is bad gut bacteria. A recent study stated that the Western Diet is the common cause of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. What this means is that the foods we eat are crucial to the amount of inflammation in our body. If you eat the typical American Diet, you are susceptible to poor gut bacteria and inflammation. Activated Charcoal acts as a vacuum in your digestive tract by absorbing these toxins before they can make their way into your body. This in turn protects your brain from potential inflammation. With less inflammation in your brain, the better you will sleep!

This is a sleep hack that we have been loving and we treat our Vimco Wellness Charcoal Lemonade as dessert! Instead of reaching for that second glass of wine, try reaching for crisp and refreshing Charcoal Lemonade. Your body will thank you.

Cheers to delicious lemonade, eliminating toxins and better sleep!
