Sometimes you stumble across a product that really makes a difference to your well-being, energy and immunity. Since discovering the WelleCo Super Elixir Alkalising Formula in February of this year, I have added it to my daily routine and it has improved my energy levels, boosted my immunity (no sick days all year), and increased my overall health and well-being. It has also improved my skin and the quality of my sleep. I wouldn’t be without it, and everyone I have introduced it to feels the same. So what is WelleCo and why are their products so wonderful?
Based in Australia, WelleCo was founded by supermodel Elle Macpherson, media maven Andrea Horwood and Dr Simone Laubscher, a nutrition specialist. The idea was formed as Macpherson wanted to share what she had learnt from Dr Laubscher, who had found that many health problems stem from a foundation of acidity in the body. Dr Laubscher developed the Alkalising Formula to combat levels of acidity brought about by stress, poor diet and inflammation. She discovered that the body isn’t able to digest chemicals, but absorbs nutrition via natural wholefoods. The Alkalising Formula is the ultimate multi-vitamin powder, packed with 45 bio-live nutrients designed to work together for easy absorption and optimum results. Pretty much everything green, from kale to kiwifruit, is in the formula, which tastes great and is easy to incorporate in a smoothie or just mixed with water or almond milk.
From an interview featured on the WelleCo Journal, Macpherson talks about how a few years ago, she felt tired and lethargic, despite living a healthy lifestyle and taking a number of synthetic supplements. However, she found that by avoiding acid-inducing foods such as dairy, sugar and alcohol, and increasing the amount of plants in her diet, along with taking the Alkalising Formula daily, her energy levels increased, her skin improved and her overall wellbeing returned.
“For the body to work optimally, the pH of blood sits in a narrow range of between 7.35 and 7.45, which is slightly alkaline, and the body does everything it can to maintain this value. So it’s quite simple: eat more plants, less animal foods and to help along the way, take an absorbable bio-live alkalising greens blend such as The Super Elixir.” Macpherson says that the Alkalising Formula is the only supplement she now takes.
In addition to the Alkalising Formula, WelleCo also produces a Nourishing Protein powder, made from organic pea protein. The combination of organic pea and rice protein provides all 9 essential amino acids in a plant-based vegan protein. For optimum gut health, the Nourishing Protein contains a mix of prebiotics and probiotics, and digestive enzymes. The protein keeps you full for longer, and also tastes great in smoothies, bliss balls, smoothie bowls and just mixed with nut milk. It can also be used as meal replacement, or snack, and is really delicious.
And while it may not be possible to look exactly like Elle, or live the jet-set life of a supermodel/businesswoman, it is possible to have what she’s having, in terms of nutritional support. And like Macpherson, I think many of us do struggle with finding the right balance of a good diet, managing stress, and avoiding illness. “Modern life, processed food and everyday incidental toxic overload meant I needed to boost my natural diet and I think a lot of people feel the same way. The most important thing to me is how I feel and I’ve found if my body is getting the nutrients it needs, it shows on the outside,” says Macpherson. If you are struggling with low energy, getting sick all the time and dealing with stress, I highly recommend you try the Super Elixir Alkalising Formula. If you are wanting to achieve some weight loss, try the Nourishing Protein. You can find out more information about these products on the WelleCo website.
