Before starting the program, I was in a post-holiday rut with fatigue and winter skin issues. My initial thoughts on the green powder was that it had a fruity, herbal taste with a familiar texture reminiscent of matcha. This all made the first sip less intimidating, and I loved knowing that it was packed with vitamins and minerals. For the first few days, I tried SUPER ELIXIR in the recommended method of mixing two teaspoons into one cup of filtered water. I later experimented with almond milk and blended the formula into banana smoothies. While SUPER ELIXIR is absorbed easily into any beverage of choice, it needed to be consumed quickly before the fibrous ingredients could separate.
Hi Quinta! We hear you're really busy these days. What have you been up to?
For optimum results, WelleCo recommends consuming the greens an hour on either side of caffeine to fully experience an energy boost from its active ingredients. Elle says that it takes the body 30 days to form a habit, which is why they challenge wellness enthusiasts to try their products for a month consecutively.
What’s your Facebook show about?
For myself, I noticed a stronger outcome when drinking SUPER ELIXIR in the morning rather than evenings. Before the challenge, I’d crave a 3 p.m. sugar fix, but that soon subsided as I experienced consistent energy levels throughout the day.
So many of your videos have gone viral.
Do you think you’ve discovered a secret sauce?
I actually think it boils down to a principle I learned in college in an advertising class. Basically, to make a successful commercial, there are these different emotional strings you can pull—empathy, shock, vulnerability, etc. The same is true for a viral video. You need to make people feel something. What's the human connection? What will it evoke?
The full WelleCo suite includes the SUPER ELIXIR Greens, NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN, and SLEEP WELLE Calming Tea, all of which provide great nutritional and health benefits from kickstarting the body’s metabolism to calming levels of stress.
“Mixing things up everyday is key for me. When it comes to diet and exercise, I try and listen to what my body needs.
I used to follow a strict routine of high intensity training, but now I mix it up outdoors. Come mid-morning, my body either asks for protein or greens too so mixing it up applies to my diet as well.”
Overall, after the SUPER ELIXIR 30-day challenge I felt more energized, less bloated, and saw my complexion clear up within the first two weeks. With supermodel Elle Macpherson as inspiration, I hope to stick to this routine.
I may even get creative and incorporate some chocolate via WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN—an added, delicious bonus.”
