If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I’m all about that balanced pH. I’ve been advocating for gentle skincare, namely cleansers, ever since I read this post by a fellow blogger Kerry of Skin & Tonics. She talks about the damage that can be done to your skin’s protective acid mantle if you use the wrong skincare, and even a single exposure to a product too acidic or too alkaline can set back your beauty goals for weeks and even months, depending on how much damage was done.
However, did you know that your entire body can benefit from improving its pH balance? I didn’t until I read about WelleCo The Super Elixir [$135 for 10.6 oz, available here], a premium beauty supplement that was created to promote healthy body acidity levels. The company even carries special body pH testing strips in their online store so you could keep track of the acidity changes while taking The Super Elixir supplement.
WHAT IS THE SUPER ELIXIR?
The WelleCo story began when supermodel Elle Macpherson learned about body acidity and alkalinity from her nutritionist. Despite her healthy lifestyle, Elle was not feeling her best, but she said balancing her body pH changed her outlook on life and beauty supplements. Elle channeled her vision into creating WelleCo’s flagship product The Super Elixir, a high potency Alkalising Greens supplement that was formulated in collaboration with Dr Laubscher, PHD Nutritonal Doctor.
“Each ingredient has been added in calculated ratios to work in perfect balance with one another to help bring the body back into an alkaline state and support all 11 systems.”
Hand-made in Australia, The Super Elixir is filled with carefully sourced premium ingredients of natural and organic origin. Here are some of the key features:
- Helps the body maintain good nutrition and pH balance, optimizing the function of all 11 of your body’s systems.
- Comprised of 45 natural ingredients in scientifically calculated ratios, including super greens, Chinese herbs, digestive enzymes and members of the maitake mushroom family.
- To ensure the efficacy of the nutrients, The Super Elixir comes in a protective ceramic vessel.
- Vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, preservative-free.
I’ve been taking The Super Elixir for about two weeks now, and even though I didn’t think there was anything wrong with my body’s internal acidity, the pH strips proved otherwise. After two weeks, my number has changed by half a point, which is a considerable improvement. You can read more on how to test your body’s internal acidity here.
The powder looks like matcha, but the flavor reminds me of vintage fruity bubble gum. I found the taste to be surprisingly pleasant, because I honestly expected it to taste like kale or spinach – it’s green after all! The Super Elixir fit right in with my morning smoothies, for a day or two I even took it plain mixed with ice cold water. You need a shaker to properly mix the powder with your liquids, because it has a tendency to clump, but it’s nothing more than what you would have to do with protein powders.
So far I am enjoying the experience. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to physically track the results with pH testing strips. The Super Elixir does exactly what it promised to deliver, which is to balance the body’s pH levels. I also experienced higher energy levels and overall mood improvement.
