The spa’s latest launch is from cult wellness brand, WelleCo. The Nourishing Protein powders and the SUPER ELIXIR™ Alkalising Greens were devised by supermodel Elle Macpherson and her nutritional doctor in response to Elle’s own desire to feel fitter and more energetic.
Already a hit with Bella Spa’s health-conscious clients, the Nourishing Protein and the SUPER ELIXIR™ Alkalising Greens are both great partners for a targeted skin and body care regime, helping you to look and feel good from the inside out.
Here’s why Hayley was so excited to secure the products exclusively for Bella Spa in Guernsey.
Question: Why do you rate the Nourishing Protein and the SUPER ELIXIR™ Alkalising Greens so highly?
Hayley: There are a lot of ‘superfood’ products on the market to choose from, but I was impressed with the SUPER ELIXIR™ Alkalising Greens from day one, because they are a complete formula. Plus I feel strongly that these kinds of products need to be formulated by experts and WelleCo’s co-founder Dr Laubscher is a respected nutritional doctor.
When it comes to protein powders, again there are a lot on the market to choose from. Many, however, are soy-based and there is some controversy around their everyday use, plus many are very bulky. That’s not the case with Nourishing Protein: it’s vegan and really packed with protein.
Question: How do you fit them into your own wellness routine?
Hayley: Firstly, because the Alkalising Greens are a complete formula it means I don’t have to bother with so many different supplements – great for me as I am so busy I often forget to take them. Now I just add a scoop to the bottle, fill it with water and sip it when I’m doing the school run or when I’m at my computer. I’m getting a nutritious boost and staying hydrated – which is so important for your skin as well as your general health.
The Nourishing Protein has become my favourite drink to enjoy after a workout. I mix it up with some almond milk, or if I have more time I will blend it with some fruit and chia seeds to make a thicker smoothie. If I’m super busy and miss breakfast or lunch I can grab one of these to have on the go, so at least I know I’m getting some protein and healthy calories to keep me going.
Question: As a working mum, have you felt the benefits?
Hayley: Yes! Energy-wise I feel I have more to give and using the Nourishing Protein in a smoothie helps me to keep my energy levels balanced, even when I don’t have time to have a proper meal. With my blood sugar more in balance I’m less tempted to resort to unhealthy snacks. I also think my eyes look brighter and clearer.
Question: What do you think makes the SUPER ELIXIR™ Alkalising Greens stand out from other ‘green’ powders on the market?
Hayley: They’re organic for starters, which I think is important for this kind of nutritional supplement. Also, for me personally, I like that they are formulated with antioxidants, enzymes to help with my digestion, vitamins and minerals. The Alkalising Greens support 11 of the body’s systems so I feel they give me a complete boost for my whole wellbeing.
Also they are easy to take and you don’t need much. Just two teaspoons, once a day in water, juice or coconut water. I’ve tried to take a lot of supplements in the past and when they have to be taken at different times I tend to forget. I find taking this in a drink much easier so I’m getting the proper benefits.
Plus for anyone who is worried about their pH levels, the Alkalising Greens are a very easy and foolproof way to help the body change from acidic to alkaline.
Hayley: Children over the age of 15 can use the Alkalising Greens, which for mothers of teenagers could be good news! The Nourishing Protein can be used by anyone. The kids love the Raw Peruvian Cacao chocolate flavour in a smoothie (I tell them it’s a chocolate milkshake!). It keeps you fuller for longer, so you can have it at any time of the day. We all love it!
Question: What beauty benefits have you noticed since starting on the WelleCo routine?
Hayley: A flatter tum! The Nourishing Protein has definitely helped me to cut back on sugary snacks. I strongly believe that beauty comes from within and the Alkalising Greens have bought a sparkle back to my eyes, my skin is clear and I feel I just have more of a glow. For me, anti-ageing has never been about looking 10 years younger, but rather I want to simply look the best I can and the Alkalising Greens definitely help.
Question: What’s your favourite way to use the WelleCo Nourishing Protein?
Hayley: I love to make ‘thickies’ with the vanilla Nourishing Protein. I mix a couple of scoops with almond milk, chia seeds, a frozen banana, some blueberries, organic almond butter and some coconut oil. It’s delicious and really keeps me full for ages.
I also like to mix the chocolate with ice-cold milk and a handful of rolled oats to make a healthy shake. You can make puddings or add protein to breakfast bowls made with oats, chia seeds and nuts.
Question: Can you mix the Alkalising Greens with other ingredients?
Hayley: Absolutely. Like the protein, they’re great added to green smoothies, mixing a few teaspoons with kale, spinach, avocado or other greens. I like to add some fresh mint to my green smoothies for a summery taste. They also work well with fruits for a healthy juice.
