Elle Macpherson’s little handbag helper? Her own pH test kit!

At a beautiful 50, Aussie supermodel Elle Macpherson is seriously into health.

We’ve watched with interest over the last year as Elle Macpherson launched into her Alkaline Lifestyle. First the Super Greens, and now she’s revealed that she loves pH testing.

We’ve reviewed Elle’s alkaline green powder supplement earlier. It’s good, but perhaps not so good that it is any way better than many other products, including OURS.

In a recent interview, Elle ‘The Body’ Macpherson has disclosed that she carries a pH kit with her wherever she goes, slipping surreptitiously away between shoots to have a quick twinkle and test.

We’ve been supplying pH Test kits to clients for years, and wondered at the sudden increase in sales in the last week. So we did a little research and came up with Elle’s preference for an alkaline diet.

“For Macpherson, the diet means having one espresso instead of three, eating only one animal protein meal (typically fish or chicken) a day, increasing her vegetable intake and still enjoying dark chocolate, coffee, goat’s cheese and Haloumi and every day two teaspoons of THE SUPER ELIXIR™ alkalising greens (Dr Simone’s special blend of balanced nutrients). ‘Nothing too extreme – it’s all about balance,’ she says.”

Testing your pH levels is really simple and it can give a lot of information about the state of your health. It will tell you how acidic or alkaline your tissues and fluids are – and that affects all aspects of your well-being.

How? In all kinds of ways.

The effects of an overly acidic diet and system

If you’re overly acidic, you may feel a lack of energy, find it difficult to lose weight, experience poor digestion, suffer from aches and pains or even fall victim to more serious disorders. In fact, since acid is naturally corrosive and inflammatory, it irritates the organs it comes in contact with.

How do I know if I’m acidic?

First of all you can look at your diet. If it’s filled with processed foods (anything in a foil packet!), carbohydrates, sugars, caffeine or alcohol, chances are you have higher acidic levels than you should. This can be causing some of the health issues above. By testing your urine with your own pH test kit, you can determine this yourself.

I know my diet is too acidic, what can I do?

If your diet is overly acidic or you’ve tested yourself using a pH test and have results which confirm this, the best thing you can do is introduce more alkaline foods and supplements into your diet. We’ve created a free New Alkaline Diet 7 Day Menu Plan and Recipes for people who want to experience the benefits of an alkaline diet. Adding a supplement such as the AlkaBooster, our formulation of a balanced mix of the four pillars of alkaline health, calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium, will also assist in alkalising the body.

If I want to look like Elle Macpherson, will the New Alkaline Diet help me?

Elle looks amazing for her age; you wouldn’t even know she’s 51. Switching to a more alkaline diet and increasing your water intake of hydrogen rich water, does have the added benefit of slowing or even reversing the ageing process. I know this because I’m 68 but feel as though I’m in my 50s!
