We like really good food that's really good for us.
Honest Elixirs began with a passion for delicious food, and the desire for nourishing, healing ingredients.
Hi, I'm Ali! I'm a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and the creator of Honest Elixirs. Born and raised in small-town, British Columbia, Canada, I grew up being taught the importance of good quality, nourishing foods.
I come from the type of family that grows their own organic produce but also doesn't hesitate to stop for soft-serve ice cream when the desire strikes. I therefore know that eating high-quality, nutritious food is important for the way we feel, but that life is also meant to be enjoyed and delicious foods are a really great way to do that.
When I set out to create Honest Elixirs, I knew that this philosophy would be at the heart of it.
That's why each elixir created starts with high-quality ingredients; each one serves a specific purpose for the body, and they are combined in a way that makes your morning, afternoon, or anytime beverage super luxurious, dreamy, creamy, and makes-you-wanna-get-outta-bed-in-the-morning good.
every ingredient serves a purpose.
We don't put things in our drinks without good reason.
Read up on some of our favourite ingredients:
Collagen is the most abundant source of protein in our bodies. It is needed for healthy skin, hair, nails, joints, tendons, ligaments, and the digestive tract.
Our bodies' own natural collagen production begins to decline sometime around our early twenties. Getting collagen through our diet, like in our Superfood Drink Blends, provides our bodies with all the building blocks it needs to boost its own collagen production!
Adding collagen to your daily diet can help increase skin elasticity, strengthen the gut lining, reduce joint pain, and make your hair and nails stronger and healthier. Not only this, but collagen is made up completely of amino acids, or the building blocks of protein, so it's a great and easy way to get an extra source of protein in your day!
Our collagen is sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone and anti-biotic free American cattle.
Coconut butter is the star of the show when it comes to making our Superfood Drink Blends super creamy and delicious. Our coconut butter is made by processing raw coconut until it releases its oils and turns into a smooth and buttery consistency. It adds fibre, flavour, fats, and creaminess to each Superfood Drink Blend we make!
Our MCT oil is derived from organic coconut using organic processes. When MCTs, or medium-chain-triglycerides, are extracted from coconut, the result is an easier to digest oil that can serve as a quick source of energy for the body, without affecting blood sugar levels.
Among its many benefits, MCT oil can help you feel fuller longer, provides fuel for your brain, and is perfect for those on a ketogenic diet.
Turmeric is what gives our Golden Mylk Latte drink blend its beautiful golden hue, along with much of its anti-inflammatory power! This gorgeous spice contains many valuable compounds, but the most studied and well-known of these is curcumin.
Curcumin is strongly anti-inflammatory, meaning it helps to manage chronic inflammation which is extremely common and a driving force behind most chronic diseases, not to mention every day aches and pains, skin troubles, and digestive troubles! Curcumin and many other compounds in turmeric are also powerful antioxidants and therefore can help to slow down oxidative damage in the body.
Our Golden Mylk Latte drink blend contains black pepper and, of course, healthy fats which both increase the absorption of curcumin.
You know they say dark chocolate is good for you, so why not go straight to the source and get those benefits from pure, raw cacao powder?!
Raw cacao is an amazing source of polyphenols, or naturally occurring antioxidants, that can provide numerous health benefits and protection against many chronic diseases.
Raw cacao is also one of the best food sources of magnesium, an important mineral that many people do not get enough of in their every day diets. Magnesium is involved in over 600 reactions in the body - this means that not getting enough of it can affect everything from our sleep, to our muscles (including our hearts!), our bones, our energy, and our moods!
Unlike regular cocoa powder, our organic raw cacao isn't heated, therefore keeping the many important nutrients available to us, and providing a delicious dark chocolate experience!
