Co-founded and endorsed by Elle herself, along with her business parters – health and nutritional expert Dr. Simone Laubscher and brand and media mogul Andrea Horwood – {WelleCo’s} on a mission to promote good health and bring our bodies into balance by enhancing alkalinity. We asked Elle to share her secrets, clarify a few things for us and reveal the health and beauty tips she swears by…

 

{Cult Beauty} WelleCo is famed for its first formula – {THE SUPER ELIXIR} – which is described as an ‘Alkalising Protein’. Why is it better for your system to be ‘alkaline’, and which simple steps can we take to keep our bodies in this state?

{Elle Macpherson} I have learned that by reducing acid-forming foods and replacing them with bio-live nutrients and raw fruits and vegetables, the body can thrive in a healthy and balanced state that allows the digestive system and liver to rest and recuperate. Alkalising your body is not about giving up the foods you love or trying to live on nothing. It’s simply about balancing harsher foods with more plants that can help filter out the acids.

{THE SUPER ELIXIR} bio-live greens is formulated with 45 premium wholefood ingredients that are carefully selected to work together to ensure maximum absorption. When you are nourished and maintain a healthy pH balance, there is less acidity in the body that can lead to inflammation, low energy, weight gain and accelerated ageing of the cells. My daily dose has honestly transformed the way I feel, and made me realise what a profound impact good nutrition can have on joie de vivre, and how this is reflected on the outside.

When it comes to alkalising, I have some simple way to help maintain a pH in the alkaline range (above 7)…

– Drink two litres of water per day.

– Take two teaspoons of {THE SUPER ELIXIR} bio-live greens daily to boost overall nutrition and maintain your body’s healthy alkaline range.

– Eat more plants from the colour of the rainbow.

– Reduce dairy (replace cow’s milk with almond or rice milk and if you can’t live without it, opt for goat or sheep milk varieties).

– Reduce coffee to one per day (or none!).

– Choose gluten-free bread and pasta or wholemeal pasta, and grains such as quinoa and brown rice (I don’t eat wheat and prefer quinoa or seeds).

– Reduce sugar and remove artificial sweeteners (dark chocolate is okay though…).

– Include a de-stress activity into your day (like meditation, walking, yoga, or swimming).

– Breathe – practice conscious breathing.

– Slow down every moment, whether it is eating, drinking or texting.

– Practice appreciation and grateful thoughts. I make an appreciation list most evenings. I find it keeps me in a loving state of mind with fewer toxic thoughts.

{CB} You refer to ’11 body systems’ – are you able to talk us through what these are, and the best ways you’ve found to help keep things in sync?

{EM} When Dr. Simone Laubscher PhD was formulating THE SUPER ELIXIR, she looked at the average imbalances of an adult, and thought about what specific ingredients she could include to support and balance all 11 systems. Some of the key ingredients are horsetail and omega 3 for hair, skin and nails, probiotics and prebiotics to support the entire digestive system, and shitake and maitake mushrooms that when combined, are great for enhancing immunity. Her considered approach has made {THE SUPER ELIXIR} bio-live greens the ultimate multivitamin.
