You have probably heard it time and again; you have to eat more greens! Well, truth is; you do! In my opinion, you can never, ever over-do it on the greens-side.
I’m a huge fan of supplements, tonics, vitamins, herbs, spices.. You name it, I love it! And have probably also tried it. I wish Australia was a bit more fast-forward with those things however, which is perhaps why I can literally spend HOURS in Erewhon Markets in LA reading ingredients lists on every single jar they have in the store.. Yep, you know where to find me in LA.
So, you could potentially imagine my excitement when Welleco asked if I wanted to do a 2-week trial of The Super Elixir Alkalising Greens supplement.
I received a beautiful, large Super Elixir black jar which is perfect for refills (because it will be refilled, I’ll tell you that already!), and looks super cute, chic and luxurious on the kitchen counter. Who doesn’t like a bit of oomph in the kitchen, right?
I was excited to get started on using The Super Elixir and right away whipped up a new smoothie-bowl recipe including The Super Elixir of course.
The Super Elixir Smoothie Bowl by Caroline Groth
- 1 banana
- 1/2 avocado
- 2 tbsp natural or greek yoghurt
- 1 handful of fresh spinach
- 1 handful of fresh rocket
- 1 handful of fresh blueberries
- 4 fresh dates
- 6-8 almonds
- 2 tsp pepitas
- 2 tsp The Super Elixir Alkalising Greens
- 1 cup coconut water
Blend all ingredients and top with your favourite fruits, seeds and a sprinkle of The Super Elixir
It’s absolutely delicious, and what I absolutely love about these Alkalising Greens supplement is that they taste great! I’ve tried a lot of green supplements and some tend to have a very bitter flavour, however, not this one.
The best description would be that it tastes somewhat like a mix of sweet leafy greens with a bit of lemon.
If I don’t have it on/in my breakfast, I add it into my water. Just 2 tsp’s in a bottle – shake it well – and then sip on it throughout the day.
Because I have started my mornings with The Super Elixir in water or food, I have really noticed a difference in my energy levels. It’s been great starting the morning with the alkalising greens in water as it’s woken me up before I’ve had my coffee. I’ve also felt a shift in my tummy. I have an uber-sensitive tummy, and the smallest shifts and food will see it bloat like there’s no tomorrow!
The Super Elixir has definitely helped keeping the bloat at bay, and even some days have kept it away completely – these are the days where I tend to have The Super Elixir mixed in my water all throughout the day – a little bit goes a long away, so I’ve found.
It has also helped clear my skin tremendously by helping my stress-levels come down and balancing my hormone’s. When I started on the trial I had so many breakouts, because I was running around like a headless chicken, and my skin was the give-away! Even after a few simple days, I noticed a clearer and more radiant glow to my skin, helping my scars and zits heal quicker than before.
An unbalanced acidic body is a by-product of today’s increasingly acidic diet and stressful lifestyle. Refined sugar, too much alcohol, processed convenience foods that are nutritionally ‘dead’, an imbalance of animal versus clean plant products, teamed with pollution and stress can all be contributing factors.
Your pH balance is linked to many health problems large and small, including inflammation, low energy, digestion, endocrine function and accelerated ageing of the cells.
The best way to give your body the nutrients it craves is through natural, whole foods.
As you possibly know, the co-founder of The Super Elixir is none else than super-babe and wellness-aficionado, Elle Macpherson and at the age of 53, I think, she’s also a perfect example of how nurturing your insides, make you glow on the outside for life.
