We answer your most frequently asked questions.
CAN I TAKE WELLECO ELIXIRS WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
When it comes to pregnancy and breastfeeding, we always advise to check with your doctor first. Our formulator Dr Simone Laubscher PhD., advises if you're used to taking the SUPER ELIXIR consistently it is fine to continue taking whilst pregnant or breastfeeding. If not check with your doctor has it may create a detox reaction.
CAN WELLECO PRODUCTS INTERFERE WITH MY PHARMECUETICAL MEDICATIONS?
The SUPER ELIXIR is made from whole foods so it should not affect your medication, however to be cautious we recommend consulting your health care professional first.
WHY ARE THERE SWEETNERS IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
With most ingredients, there are good or nasty versions depending on the source. The sweeteners in our products are all derived from natural, plant-based sources.
XYLITOL - Our Xylitol is derived from birch, rather than GMO corn. This provides a subtle sweetness without spiking blood sugar.
MALTODEXTRIN - Maltodextrin is a ploysaccride produced by most plants. Instead of using wheat, corn and potato versions we use a natural one derived from rice.
FRUCTOOLIGOSACCHARIDE – FOS is included due to its prebiotic properties which helps keep the probiotics alive in the gut for longer.
CAN I GIVE WELLECO PRODUCTS TO MY CHILDREN?
Our Super Kids NOURISHING PROTEIN is suitable for children aged 8-15 and has been formulated with their nutritional needs in mind. If you feel our product may be suitable for your child under this age, we recommend consulting your child’s health care professional first.
HOW AND WHY DO I TAKE PROTEIN?
We recommend taking NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN when required as a light but filling snack, breakfast or lunch, or post-workout to aid muscle recovery. Protein is an essential building block for creating new cells and repairing old ones. Because our bodies cannot store the amino acids contained in protein, we need to consume it on a daily basis.
