My dear friend (who knows her wellness stuff) taught me about alkalinity a long time ago. Each time I visit her home and drink her filtered water, I feel great. So when I got the chance to try Elle Macpherson’s Super Elixir based on the same premise, I jumped.
Elle was feeling rundown when she visited her nutritional doctor who suggested a pH balancing. And it brought a dramatic sense of wellness to her body and she wanted to share that. The expanded line offers supplements, veggie wash and a plant protein (which I can’t wait to try) but for now I am focusing on the supplement.
This all-in-one powder is organic and simple. The formula contains premium ingredients and is hand-made in Australia (which helps explain away a little of the sticker shock).
Directions advise 2 teaspoons of powder in filtered water, coconut water, and almond milk or mix it into your favourite smoothie. I like it best in coconut milk – the taste in water was a little strong. I did try sprinkling on food which did not go too well. The full two teaspoons was too much for my yogurt and berries. I like mine ice-cold first thing in the morning.
I’ve made a lot of healthy changes lately, but I can really tell the Super Elixir helps start my day with energy – there is a definite difference on days where I skip it. The price point is a little daunting, but for those who want to invest in feeling a little more perky in the AM and overall balancing the pH of their bodies, Super Elixir is a wonderful wellness staple.
