The magic green powder that will turn you into Elle Macpherson

Welcome to Newness Alert, our semi-regular post detailing the best new (and wackiest) beauty, health and skincare products to hit the shelves.

The Super Elixir

Price: from $49 for 150g to $145 for 300g.

On shelf: now. Available from www.welleco.com

We’ve envied her body for decades, and now we can be one step closer actually being Elle Macpherson.

The 50-year-old has released a magic green powder supplement (with WelleCo) called Super Elixir. It contains 45 ingredients including alkalising super greens, Chinese herbs, digestive enzymes and maitake mushrooms, so it must be good.

The goal of the powder – wait, it isn’t to look like Elle?- is to “assist [in] wellness and vitality”. Incidentally, it also doesn’t make your wee fluorescent. Elle and Dr Simone Laubscher, who developed the powder, made a fascinating video about that exact topic.  Take a look.

Also, don’t judge us but we totally want to try that powder.
