Why you should be consuming activated charcoal before bed

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!
