52-year-old Supermodel Elle Macpherson has generously shared her secret to maintaining her ageless face and famous figure.
Speaking to The New Potato, Elle said that in addition to her incredibly healthy diet (including having three liters of water every day) she credits maintaining an alkaline body being the key to her success.
In fact, it is her own WelleCo health product, Super Elixir Alkalizing Greens that keeps her pH levels in check.
An ideal food day for Elle looks something a little like this:
Breakfast: Fruit, chia seed pudding, oatmeal or an egg on spelt toast followed by espresso and almond cookies.
Lunch: Fish and vegetables and for a snack, a protein shake or lemonade with cayenne pepper, fruit and almonds.
Dinner: A plant-based protein salad with goats cheese or fish followed by a bit of dark chocolate for dessert.
Throughout the day this will also include Elixir Alkalizing Greens.
Her alkaline inspired lifestyle started when she started “feeling run-down”.
“I tried an array of supplements, but nothing seemed to do the trick. No matter what I did, I just couldn’t shake the feeling that something was off. That’s when I met Simone Laubscher, Ph.D, who specialises in the science of nutrition. She explained that there was one factor in my life that wasn’t balanced: my body’s alkalinity” she said.
“Ultimately, I’ve learned that an alkaline body and pH-neutral body is a healthier body. Many people believe that it combats disease, encourages cellular renewal and therefore is anti-aging”.
“I feel that my body thrives now that I am taking the Super Elixir every day; my workouts are strong, I’ve lost weight around my waist and my moods are balanced, I don’t have sugar cravings and I just feel on top of my game. In fact, now if I leave home without my green drink in the morning, I turn and go back – my body actually craves it”.
The mix of super greens, Chinese herbs, digestive enzymes and mushrooms is meant to help the digestive system, the endocrine (hormonal) system and the circulatory and nervous systems”.
