The Supermodel Green Elixir You Need To Be Drinking

SHOCKING, BUT YOU KNOWWWWW I LOVE MY MORNING ROUTINE.

Well, not shocking because a morning routine sets the tone of the whole day.

Trust me when I say this, I’ve experienced a couple of shit mornings & I’m telling you a casual, calm morning makes all the difference.

( This morning was a tad hectic, eating slightly stale steel cut oats & scrambled eggs in the car with two different socks on, holding a conference call in traffic……..but we made it work ).

Anyway. Tomorrow will be golden because for the last couple months I’ve been drinking this green elixir powder. I discovered it through Elle Macpherson’s Instagram. You know, the supermodel mogul. She developed this product over the years with a doctor.

Hold up though. I want to note I AM A BIG BEVERAGE DRINKER. LIKE 2303958 BEVVIES AT ONCE. A lot going on with the liquids. A little TSC Pink Detox Drink, a spot of peppermint tea, a little cold brew, AND some type of green concoction. Hydration is the first priority of my day, every day. In fact, if I’m not keeping my hydration in line the SECOND I wake up, I’m grumpy & rude.

The other day at a blogger conference a friend told me that a very qualified sleep specialist said the first thing you should do when you wake up is drink water.

Couldn’t agree more.

In my case, it’s water immediately and then some, but you get the gist.

I highly recommend waking up & immediately first thing drinking a HUGE cup of water. Here’s why: “one of the best things you can do after you wake up: drink at least 16oz ( 500mL ) of water. Water fires up your metabolism, hydrates you, helps your body flush out toxins, gives your brain fuel, & may even make you eat less.” ( AND READ THIS ).

We kind of got off topic, let’s get back to the green elixir.

Ideally, I would love a hefty, fresh green drink with a dinner of fresh wild salmon & leafy kale but we can’t always get what we want. With travel, podcasting in LA, & an office to run, shit gets crazy. So sometimes I need to find an effective way to get some greens in.

Enter: The Super Elixir.

First off, this isn’t sponsored. I really, really love these greens & wouldn’t recommend them if I didn’t because it’s something to ingest daily. This is what’s worked for me.

If you follow TSC on Snapchat & Instagram you know I did an IV vitamin cocktail today ( SO MUCH TO SHARE ON THIS TOPIC THAT I’M BURSTING WITH EXCITEMENT ), so I definitely believe there’s many different, pecuilar ways to get vitamins. HOWEVER, if you’re a busy bee, try these greens for a quick fix.

Some info on the brand: “THE SUPER ELIXIR Alkalizing Greens is the vision of Elle Macpherson ( supermodel !! ) & Dr. Laubscher. It contains vitamins, minerals, & trace elements to assist wellness and vitality. There’s nothing like it on the market today. That’s made it a worldwide cult bestseller. Designed to help your body maintain good nutrition and maintain its pH balance.”

ALSO YOU SHOULD know the powder has tons of super greens, Chinese herbs, digestive enzymes, & members of the maitake mushroom family. ANDDDD it’s formulated to be absorbed by your body at a cellular level, optimising the function of all 11 of your body’s systems: the digestive, endocrine ( hormonal ), integumentary ( hair, skin, & nails ), circulatory, & nervous systems, to name a few.

Oh ya, it’s vegan & dairy/gluten/preservative FREE.

Let’s also just note that the black caddy is chic on my kitchen counter & you just buy refills so you don’t have to keep buying the container. During the holidays they had it in white too, which was festive. Loving the black though because it’s sturdy & almost like a glass-ish Tupperware container.

You’re going to tell me it’s pricey…….& yes, agreed. HOWEVER I’ve tried A LOT of green powders & this is the one I like. This is the one MY body responds to. This is the one that tastes right. This is the one with my favorite ingredients. So it’s worth it to me.

If you’re looking for something less expensive, I encourage you to do your own research. Especially if you want a quick-ass way to get some green nutrients in your daily routine.

ALSO, there’s always the option to check out the refill packet to see if you like it.

Tomorrow on Snapchat, I’ll show you guys exactly how I prepare this but honestly it’s so simple: put a bunch of ice into a cup ( don’t heat it, cold is best ), add the greens, pour water on top, & stir with a straw ( silicone, of course ). I gulp it down in like four gulps & get on with my day.

So yes, that’s my green powder experience. What’s yours? Anything fun? I love learning about other people’s wellness experiences SO keep them coming.

Off to watch Vice Principles & eat some cinnamon apple popcorn.

Exhausted. Goodnight xx lauryn

    My ideal morning involves coffee w collagen and a banana, followed by Crossfit and then protein pancakes followed by some morning meditation, visualization and reading (holla to My Morning Miracle book!). Lastly prenatal vitamins (no not prego), fish oil, and probiotic! Totally sounds lame when I type it all out but these are my favorite ways to start the day!!! Might have to implement your green drink!

    I have been so intrigued by this line for so long so I am so glad you made a post on it. I love that it focuses on alkalizing. Also love that they have a travel kit which is VERY affordable so you can always have it on the go (I’m that girl who brings mini jars of coconut oil & collagen to throw in my coffee on vacay lol…) Have you tried the nourishing protein one, as well? PS – SAMES on the 2309842038742089 drinks at all time. Erik reaaalllly loves doing coffee runs in the morning aka 1 coffee for him & 3248239847 for me. (currently have 5 on my desk right now LOL) xx Shannon

      The travel kit is SUCH a great idea. I’m the same way. I got my coconut oil taken recently while traveling LOL. You can never be too hydrated right? xx

    I totally agree on the morning routine. It’s so key to wake up intentionally, slowly and ease into the day! I have some greens just before I workout and it makes all the difference in my energy. It allows me to not have coffee which I LOVE.

    Thanks so much for sharing this! I can’t wait to try!

      Have you read Miracle Morning Krista? It talks all about how to create the ideal morning routine. Absolutely loved it. http://bit.ly/2bEooGK. Greens before a workout is so great. Thanks for sharing <3 xx

    The ingredients in here are virtually identical to Amazing Grass greens powder – except that Amazing Grass doesn’t contain super shady “natural flavors.” Also, 30 servings of Amazing Grass is about $30 vs $130. I’m curious – what specifically about this supermodel elixir do you think makes it better than any other greens powder and justifies the cost? I know you said your body “loves it,” but are there any concrete facts you can provide for your support?

    I’ve tried two different green drinks for morning/night – “Amazing Grass” and “Green Phactor”. Both have amazing benefits, I just haven’t really loved the taste of either, so I think I’ll try this one next! Xx

      I will have to look into those. I suggest mixing it into a smoothie to mask the task Erin! xx

    GREEN DRINKS= YES! Cannot wait to try this bad boy! 🙂 THE ABSOLUTE FIRST thing I do in the am is drink tons of water. My body actually craves it at this point. Then I eat my healthy breakfast & take protandim!!!
    I’ve been wondering if you heard about it too….As a woman as concerned about aging, cellular health, and avoiding stress as you are I really wanna share my fave ever product with you! Protandim reduces your Oxidative stress by 40% in 30 days (yes nearly HALF of awful oxidative stress GONE IN 1 MONTH) and as you take it more & more it gets less & less like 100% GONE. Oxidative stress in our cells & causes aging, sickness, muscle soreness, etc… I didnt even mention the most miraculous part… its all natural. just 5 ingredients: Green Tea, Turmeric, Bacopa, Milk Thistle & Ashwagandha. If you want your cells to be as happy as can be and add on some extra years to your life check it out girly. xoxo

    I am OBSESSED with this powder! I add it to my green smoothie everyday (with spinach, banana & almond milk) and it tastes sooo good. I also use the nourishing chocolate protein. They are very pricey BUT they’re by far the best powders I’ve ever tried (for taste & results). xx

    I got the super elixir after I saw it on fashionlush and did some research. It makes me feel good and all but I hate the taste. I don’t know what about it but I really need to force myself to drink it. do you have any tips?

    I love everything I’ve tried from Welleco. The chocolate protein powder is also fabulous for a quick morning breakfast on the go. I’m with you…I literally leave the house every morning with 3-4 different drinks in hand….1 always The Super Elixir!

    This is why you’re my favorite blogger – we are always on the same page!! I found this recently too (wrote about it here: http://laircake.com/the-super-elixir/) and love it!!! I’ve slacked on using it the last month or so, but your post reminded me to fit it in! I’ve been trying to drink water in the morning, so I think I am going to start adding this to it and gulp it down – just like you suggested. You always have advice and secrets that are right up my alley. Keep doing what you do!
