Because most nutrients are best absorbed in plant-based form, SUPER ELIXIR Greens is formulated using 45 premium plant-based ingredients the body can easily recognise. Here are three unique plants we include that you may not recognise but your body loves.
“You’re not what you eat, but what you digest, absorb and assimilate,” says WelleCo formulator Dr Simone Laubscher PhD. “The body doesn’t always recognise and absorb synthetic vitamins. This is why I created the SUPER ELIXIR from 45 unique natural wholefoods, plants and herbs for easy uptake at a cellular level.”
Here are just 3 you may not know but your body adores.
The ancient grain Barley Grass is the leaf of the barley plant, as opposed to the grain (which is why it’s gluten free). When harvested within the early growth stages as the plant is preparing to enter the reproductive phase, all of the nutrients which have accumulated in preparation for the production of seeds can be extracted from where they are stored within the young barley grass shoots. Renowned for its alkalising and antioxidant properties, Barley grass is also a rich source of vitamins, mineral, amino acids as well as chlorophyll which is often described as the ‘green blood of plants’.
Pine Bark Extract helps strengthen blood vessels and increase blood flow from tiny vessels to tissues, improves cardiovascular health and increases circulation.

St Mary’s Thistle or Milk Thistle is beloved by herbalists for its role in healing the liver. Studies show it can protect hepatocytes (liver cells) from long-term damage caused by chemotherapy drugs, alcohol and paracetamol. Hepatitis and other conditions that damage the liver cause a hardening or fibrosis, which negatively impacts liver function. St Mary’s thistle has also been found to reduce this fibrosis. It works to increase the condition of the kidneys, spleen, gall bladder as well as the endocrine and gastrointestinal systems.
