Lovewell is dedicated to ensuring that our bodies get the highest quality plant based proteins around.
We use protein to build and repair tissue, proving to be a very important building block for strong and glossy hair (yes please!), healthy, glowy skin and strong nails. Protein also helps to create enzymes, hormones and other amazing chemicals within our body, all of which help our bodies run in the way they are supposed to. Lovewell’s Blossom + Grow formulation contains protein from organic hemp as well as organic, sprouted, fermented pea. These unique protein sources are rich in amino acids, fibre and minerals, which help to fuel almost every aspect of our hardworking bodies!
We chose Hemp as one of our fundamental ingredients as it is a remarkable source of healthy fats, with an ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids. Pea protein is leading the way in terms of animal free protein sources for having the highest level of protein of all of the plant based proteins out there! not only this, but it also promotes lean muscle growth, heart health and weight loss!
The combination of theses proteins was the perfect 1-2 combo that we felt met all of our protein needs and would offer us the highest benefits for our bodies.

Everyone knows greens are a must for health so it was a no brainer to include organic super greens in our Lovewell formula! We selected wheatgrass, spirulina and chlorella for our organic supergreens mix as we know that collectively, they contain a broad range of amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, Omega-3s and antioxidants.
The great thing about these superfood greens and the microalgae included, is that they can bump up your nutritional profile, increase energy levels (hallelujah!) alkalise the body and act as potent cleansers. Spirulina has also been shown to assist in the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, therefore improving digestion and the absorption of nutrients.
This blend is perfect for peace of mind; a powerful but palatable mix to ensure that we and our families are getting a daily dose of greens which just so happens to be hidden in an enticing chocolate flavour! Yummm.
AUSTRALIAN MARINE PHYTOPLANKTON- Dunaliella salina
(Blossom + Grow)
Lovewell LOVES algae, it’s such an amazing go-to for a multitude of health benefits plus we sourced ours from our own local Aussie shores!
Australian marine phytoplankton is a single-celled microalgae that lives in coastal waters.
Microalgae are becoming increasingly popular as a healthy food source due to how densely packed algae is with vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, carbohydrates, chlorophyll and antioxidants. It is particularly high in the antioxidants carotenoids, such as beta-carotene, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are important in protecting against free radical damage.

Acerola is a wonderful tropical fruit that has proved to be one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C on Earth! Vitamin C helps to boost our immune system and build up collagen cells, which helps to strengthen and renew our skin cells.

Kelp is a part of the sea vegetable and algae family, which as we know is full to the brim with nutrients. Did you know that Kelp holds the highest levels of natural concentration of calcium available from any foods? 10 times higher than dairy milk!
Kelp is a type of seaweed rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements. It is a wonderful source of iodine, which is essential for optimal thyroid function and metabolism. Kelp is our friend and we are very excited about its inclusion in both our kids and women’s formulations.

We’ve all heard about the importance of probiotics but what about the lesser known, but in the same family, prebiotics?
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres that work to stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut, ensuring that we are of our optimal gut flora health!
Lovewell’s specific formulation contains prebiotics from three magnificent and highly medicinal plants: Inulin from Organic Jerusalem Artichoke, Cocoa flavanols from organic, raw cacao powder and resistant starch from green bananas grown in tropical local gem Northern Queensland, Australia.

We were adamant during product development that we wanted zero sugar in our supplements, but also nothing artificial - no nasties, all natural please! Which, is where Stevia came into play. Our stevia is derived from the organic stevia leaf and contains little to no calories. Stevia is an amazing, natural, alternative to sugar which is 200-300 times sweeter than table sugar which means you don’t need much of it at all to add sweetness, and because it’s a natural, plant based alternative to sugar, it is completely safe for both adults, and children, to consume. There’s no need to add anymore sweeteners, you’re sweet enough already!

You heard it here first.. chocolate is good for you! Well, when it’s in its pure state as Cacao it sure is! Aside from being delicious and giving our Lovewell powders the creamiest, chocolatey flavour that contributes to their moreish nature, Cacao is a nutrient powerhouse. Whilst it’s synonymous for its role in the production of chocolate, Cacao alone has a number of health benefits; it’s a great source of zinc and iron, it has high levels of antioxidants (we need these to fight free radicals in the body!), it is rich in polyphenols which are responsible for reducing inflammation, and it’s super high in magnesium which is something that all women need, due to its amazing benefits for bone, muscle and heart health, PMS and mood / anxiety - it is a natural way of calming your body. Plus, it’s high in flavonoids - the healthy nutrients made by plants that are basically top range natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, to put it simply; the more flavonoids you can incorporate into your diet, the better. And not to get super technical but it is high in the amino acid, tryptophan which is a precursor to serotonin - the neurotransmitter of happiness! All of these benefits and your Blossom or Grow smoothie is going to have that delicious chocolatey taste. It’s a win, win! So, there you have it… we give you permission to have dessert for breakfast when it’s in the form of our Blossom shake ;)

Fibre is essential in our overall wellbeing, from a young age it has such an important part to play in our health, particularly digestion and ridding the body of anything unwanted, we have incorporated different levels of fibre in both powders to ensure both mama, and child, are getting their hit of fibre.
As adults, we all know how important it is to be ‘regular’ and it’s fibre that helps us with this, but did you know that fibre is also essential in heart health and can help lower cholesterol? So, all signs point to incorporating fibre into your daily diet, and with BLOSSOM, you’ll be getting a daily dose of fibre via green barley grass, sweet potato and goji berries. Yes, please!!

Iron is an important component of red blood cells that transports oxygen around our bodies, we need to ensure we have enough iron to continue making healthy red blood cells and to keep our immune system performing at its optimal level. Lovewell’s Blossom contains some key ingredients that are naturally high in iron. Chlorella is a great source of both iron and vitamin c, which is an essential combination when talking about iron absorption in the body as it helps the body break it down into a form that is easily absorbed. Spirulina hosts a multitude of benefits, one of which is the fact that it’s considered one of the best vegetarian / vegan sources of iron available, it is highly absorbable and really gentle on the digestive system. And finally, hemp protein, together with Chlorella and Spirulina, offer another nutrient dense source of iron. So there’s no need to go full Popeye and eat bowls full of Spinach, we have got you covered!
ACTIVE B VITAMIN COMPLEX
Lovewell’s Blossom contains a complete complex of the 8 major B vitamins, produced from quinoa sprouts! These natural B vitamins contain coenzymes which are biologically active and therefore superior to synthetic vitamins. The vitamins fat soluble, due to the presence of the coenzymes and therefore stay in the body longer. B vitamins are important for normal mental and physical energy and healthy blood formation. They can also help to reduce fatigue and tiredness which we ALL need in this fast paced world!
MATCHA GREEN TEA
We ummed and ahhed about the inclusion of caffeine in our Lovewell Blossom supplement but as busy (and perpetually!) tired mamas we knew we wanted something in our supplement to boost our energy levels and help get the kick we all so desperately desire! So, we decided on a healthy alternative to the caffeine that most of us ingest in our daily coffees, a cleaner caffeine.
After collaborating with both doctors and nutritionists, we decided on including Matcha Green Tea. The buzz you get from this kind of pure caffeine is much more energising and longer-lasting. It's all thanks to the amino acid L-Theanine, which slows the release of caffeine and has a soothing, relaxing effect, making it a much more sustainable energy booster, offering plant based vigour and vitality! It contributes to a healthy metabolism, boosts clarity and works as a natural detoxifier. Yes thank you!
Lovewell’s Blossom contains the powerful nootropic herb, Gingko Biloba. This herb is highly medicinal and is often referred to as a living fossil, being the only survivor of an ancient order of plants! Pretty impressive stuff.
This beautiful, nurturing herb is commonly referred to as “brain food”, a circulatory stimulant that has been shown to greatly improve cognitive function such as short- term memory recall, whilst providing neuro-protection to allow for optimal brain function.
Ah the magic power of mushrooms!! This miraculous mushroom blend provides numerous health benefits but is particularly powerful in both harmonising and boosting the immune system, which will help to protect you against the myriad of bacteria and viruses that you’re exposed to in everyday life.
Our immune system works relentlessly to fight off invading organisms that can threaten our inner equilibrium, so keeping it in tip-top shape is crucial to maintaining optimal health. Additionally, mushrooms have potent antioxidant capability, ensuring cell protection, which is particularly beneficial in maintaining healthy skin and slowing down the ageing process. Thats right! Slow. It. Down.
Lovewell’s Blossom is jam-packed with antioxidants from super greens, cacao, beetroot, marine phytoplankton, gingko and carrot - just to name a few! Our formula provides a broad spectrum of phytonutrients, providing us necessary protection against oxidative damage. Experts believe that having a diet high in phytonutrient- rich foods promotes healthy ageing. Look good, feel good!
When formulating our mushroom blend to include in our adults powder, we knew we wanted to ensure certain types of mushrooms were included for the benefits specific to them; mushrooms are powerhouses in general, but each variation of the mushroom family boasts its own benefits. Where do we even begin with Lions Mane; there was a reason why this was top of our list as an inclusion, because it’s an amazing all-rounder and has so (so!) many health benefits. Lions Mane is incredibly potent in its efficacy for organ function and nerve health, as well as aiding in digestion (both digestive tract and stomach lining), symptoms of anxiety, heart health, immune support, cognitive function and memory. We weren’t lying when we said it’s one of the MVP’s of the mushroom world!
Apart from being the prettiest mushroom you ever did see, Tremella, also known as snow mushroom, is amazing when it comes to beauty benefits. Want supple, hydrated, glowing skin? Tremella is your secret weapon, it’s been known in China for centuries as a beauty secret and for good reason; it can hold almost 500x its weight in water. So when it comes to hydration, Tremella mushroom is a powerhouse in terms of helping your body naturally produce collagen and naturally mimic Hyaluronic Acid... and these two combined are powerful when it comes to skin health and overall wellness. Beauty really does start from nourishing within, you can thank us later ;)
Rounding out our powerhouse mushroom blend is Reishi, and similarly to Lions Mane, it packs a punch in both nutrients and health benefits. Its greatest benefit? Immunity! For centuries it has been used in herbal medicine to boost the immune system, ward off infections and fight bacteria and its benefits are widely documented. Who doesn’t want a strong immune system? As parents we always need to be ‘on’ and never seem to have time to rest, so even when the flu is going around or our littlies come home from school with the latest bug that’s circling, we want our immune systems to be strong, armoured up and in full defence mode. And Reishi has us sorted with that!
Hormones are often fobbed off, but truly play such a vital role in our bodies; and not just in a sexual capacity but also when it comes to growth, sleep, mood, stress and even metabolism. In fact, it’s those helpful little hormones that carry messages from our cells to our brain and organs. Maca is the fairy godmother of hormone health. When formulating Blossom, we had all the mamas in mind, and particularly all the hormone changes our bodies go through pre, during and post pregnancy. We wanted to include a powerhouse to support hormone health overall, and in particular help in balancing hormones, encourage fertility hormones, suppress cortisol (the ‘stress’ hormone), boost energy, offer relief from PMS symptoms and support adrenals. Enter: Maca. This superstar powder does all of the above and so much more, you simply cannot look past it when it comes to hormone health and we’ve incorporated a strong dose into our formula. Maca is an amazing superfood which also supports endurance, oxygen in the blood, physical strength, neurotransmitter production, and helps you enjoy a healthy libido!! Plus, it’s not just for the mamas, it is an amazing support for mens hormones too.
FRUIT AND VEGETABLE BLEND
Fruits and vegetables, as we all well know, are full to the brim with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to supports children’s healthy growth and development! Lovewell’s blend includes Organic Apples, blueberries, banana, sweet potato plus Organic Goji berries and more! All amazing ingredients that help strengthen the immune system and fight off those pesky coughs and colds.
Such a great way to get all the goodness of fruit and veg hidden in a shake that taste like dessert! Win, win.
We have included Sunflower Lecithin in our kids formulation because we know that Lecithin is a fat essential in the cells of our bodies. It is particularly beneficial for improving immune function and supporting healthy digestion. It contains phosphatidylcholine, which helps with healthy brain development in our kiddos and may help to improve memory, making life a lot easier for us parents!
Marine Calcium is a very potent and easy way for our kids to get their calcium intake up. Marine Calcium is a plant derived calcium and magnesium complex from Lithothamnion algae. We know the importance of nurturing great bone health in our children, ensuring that their bones grow strong and maintain mass, allowing them to continue adventuring on their journeys!
