Need a new nightcap? Meet Activated Charcoal.

Need a new nightcap? Meet Activated Charcoal.

Do you ever wake up feeling a little hazy after a long night?

Maybe instead of wanting coffee, you're needing it!?

We've all been there.

Instead of that last extra glass of wine...try a glass of Charcoal Lemonade to ensure you're feeling great in the morning.

Here's why.

Alcohol contains toxins. Toxins cause inflammation in the body when absorbed. Inflammation can cause headaches, brain fog and lower energy levels. Charcoal helps to bind to these toxins before they are absorbed and takes them throughout the digestive system. When you absorb less toxins from alcohol, you will feel much better in the morning.

Added bonus: Alcohol is dehydrating in nature. If you've been eating salty food in combination with alcohol you are setting yourself up to feel dehydrated. This increases the negative effects of headaches, brain fog and low energy. By adding a big glass of Charcoal Lemonade to the end of your night you'll be adding some much needed hydration. your body will thank you!

Adding Charcoal Lemonade to your nightly routine is a great idea no matter the occasion, but after a night if "indulging" it can be a life saver. Make sure to swap out your night cap with something that will leave you feeling great in the morning!

Pro tip: Charcoal Lemonade is delicious cold and hot! Make it like classic lemonade for a bright refreshing drink or with hot water for a warming lemon detox tea :)

Cheers to feeling better in the morning.

What are Probiotics: Simplified

Probiotics are everywhere. They’re popping up in everything from instant beverages to coffee to condiments. More than likely, you’ve heard about them, but do you really know what they are? Let’s break it down in simple terms.

Our bodies contain bacteria of all forms. Don’t fret...some bacteria can be good for us! The bacteria in our bodies are generally classified as good bacteria and bad bacteria. When you get an infection, that means there is more bad bacteria in your system. The goal is to promote the growth of good bacteria to destroy the bad bacteria and restore order in the body.

Probiotics are made up of living good bacteria. They help fight off the bad bacteria and keep you healthy. The more balanced your bacteria are the better. The goal of probiotic supplements is to supply the body with the necessary good bacteria to help maintain balance in the gut and avoid infection and illness.

Three Quick Takeaways:

  1. Our body is made up of good and bad bacteria.
  2. Probiotics are living “good” bacteria.
  3. Probiotics may help increase the good bacteria in your body to help fight off infection and illness.

Looking for a simple way to add probiotics to your daily routine? Try Vimco Wellness’s delicious Probiotic Lemonade. One lemonade a day keeps the bad bacteria at bay :)

5 Ways to Crush "Work From Home" Life

Working from home.

Some people are loving it...and some people are going nuts!

Here are 5 ways to make sure you are thriving at home:

1. Play uplifting music in the background

  • This can bring the "coffee shop" vibe straight to your house.
  • Negative energy is easy to come by these days. Getting a song with a positive message stuck in your head will improve your attitude throughout your day.

2. Move your body

  • Have you heard of Peloton? Did you know that they offer more than cycling and treadmill workouts? They are offering a FREE 90 Day Trial of their app right now.
  • We started using the app and love it! It's like having your own personal trainer at your house. Oh, and they have new classes on the daily!
  • Here is the link: https://www.onepeloton.com/digital/checkout/digital-90d

3. Find a new favorite podcast

  • Here is what we are listening to: How I Built This with Guy Raz
  • This podcast not only shows you how some of your favorite businesses were built, but it gives you a behind the scenes look.
  • It is great for this moment in time because you hear amazing stories of adversity and the triumph that follows. If you haven't listened to this, it is a must!
  • Available on the podcast app, Spotify and at this link: https://www.npr.org/podcasts/510313/how-i-built-this

4. Walk outside

  • This is by far easiest way to improve your day.
  • 30 minutes walking outside can improve your mood instantly and also improve your focus when you get back settled into your work.
  • We would suggest to look around, observe your surroundings and use this time to think. Music and phone calls can wait.

5. Dive into a new hobby

  • Free time is running more rampant than ever before. Let's use it!
  • Some our family just planted a salsa garden and they are growing everything you need to make beautiful fresh salsa. Count us in!
  • We just learned a new card game that is bringing out our competitive spirit.
  • A friend we know is making rap beats on their computer.
  • I am sure there is something that you have always been interested in, but haven't had the time. Now is the time :)

 

Cheers,

The Vimco Team
