Want to look like Elle Macpherson when you turn 50? Who doesn’t! Aussie supermodel and lingerie designer known simply as “The Body” in some circles, looks 35 but just recently turned the big 5-0. Along with her big birthday, came a big reveal that she is a long term devotee of THE SUPER ELIXIRTM, touted as the next generation in alkalizing food supplements.
Simone Laubscher, PhD, from Sydney, who served as Joint Head of Medical Services and Head Nutritionist at The Third Space Medicine in London, UK, has been formulating THE SUPER ELIXIR for Elle for 15 years. Called a super green supplement, the powder comes in a luxurious shiny jet black ceramic jar housed in an elegant black box, not the usual look for a nutritional supplement. It is meant to be consumed in the AM because it gives an energy boost, added to smoothies, coconut water, almond milk, juice, or sprinkled into yogurt or on top of salads. The 300g caddy is $135 and 300g refill pouches are $80
Elle’s SUPER ELIXIR is among the new generation of functional foods that is taking the market by storm. According to Packaged Facts, “The US nutritional supplements market is going to maintain its average growth rate of just over 6% per year through 2018, hitting sales of $16.4 billion….Sales of nutritional supplements will experience an increased growth rate between 2014 and 2018, with sales expanding due to an aging population, rising consumerÂ involvement inÂ personal health, and a growing expectation of personalization for virtually all services and products.”
