While many fans know Elle Macpherson for her three consecutive SI Swimsuit Issue covers (in 1986, ’87 and ’88), the model’s storied career also involves several years as a thriving wellness entrepreneur.

As the founder of WelleCo, a plant-based supplement company, Macpherson regularly shares her healthy lifestyle tips with her fans and followers. The 58-year-old model did just that in a recent feature with Get The Gloss, in which she shared her secrets for bolstering her immune system.

Macpherson divulged that it wasn’t until she turned 40 (and gave up smoking and drinking) that she reached her peak health. She also said that becoming a parent—she’s mom to sons Flynn and Cy—changed her outlook on wellness.

While she said she relies on getting enough sleep, juicing and hot and cold therapy for immunity, Macpherson’s ultimate immune supporters are easy enough to pick and choose a few to incorporate into our own lives.

“I’m also a big believer in daily vitamin D from the sun, and of reducing EMF (electromagnetic fields) by lowering screen use and using blue light blocking glasses and red light at night,” she stated. “I believe in [minimizing] stress, which has been proven to weaken the immune system and is the best reason to meditate more. Another thing I like to do for my immune system is to practice Reiki on myself.”

WelleCo was launched in 2014 and the Australian-based brand offers a variety of skincare products and supplements.
