Meet Desirée Chance and Antonella Nardi of Yourlixir

Today we’d like to introduce you to Desirée Chance and Antonella Nardi.

Desiree and Antonella, please share your story with us.
We originally started Yourlixir in an effort to solve an issue we had with easily incorporating our health with our on-the-go lifestyles. Between work, travel and having active days running around the city, we found it either difficult or just too expensive to keep on top of the kind of health regimine we’d like to. Enter: Yourlixir.

Growing up, we were always a bit more health conscious than the average person, taking care of our bodies both inside and out with carefully selected nutritional supplements and superfoods, consistent exercise, mindfulness and an all around healthy “diet”. It was important to us to be able to keep to our routines, regardless of where we were and decided there needed to be a simpler approach to taking our superfoods with us, whether it be on a flight, vacation, or just having it handy for post-workouts or even adding a quick boost to our food or drink at lunch.

After spending a month in Bali incubating, visiting the top farms and learning as much as we could about the way the Balinese have so seamlessly integrated all aspects of wellbeing into their culture, we knew we wanted to share that experience with others through Yourlixir. Through a very meticulous process, we curated our first line of supreme quality superfoods that included Japanese Ceremonial Grade Matcha, Peruvian Maca, Spirulina, Indian Turmeric and Activated Charcoal. These 5 superfoods include a wide variety of health benefits ranging from hormonal balance, natural, clean energy to combat adrenal fatigue, brain and immune boosters, essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids, detoxing and so much more. Most are also used in other methods, aside from ingestion, including clarifying face masks and all-natural teeth whitening, making these superfoods truly multi-functional. The best part? With our single-serving sachets, you can literally take these with you, wherever you go! Stick them in your gym bag, wallet, keep a few in your car, or at your desk.

With only a few months into our launch, we’ve been picked up by top health and fitness apps that have been featured in Time Magazine and Tech Crunch, launched on Amazon, been featured in several stories and events across the U.S., and are currently working with some of the most credible brands and influencers in social media throughout the health and wellbeing community — all organically, we might add.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
So far things have been as smooth as they can be for a brand new startup. I’m sure we’ve encountered similar issues to anyone who’s entering an industry that is constantly evolving and there are always hurdles here and there when it comes to all the behind the scenes stuff like packaging and strategies. We tend to embrace the challenges though and lean into the curves as they come, they are often the best ways to learn the in’s and out’s of your company. What’s that saying? “Smooth seas don’t make for skillful sailors.”

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Yourlixir story. Tell us more about the business.
Yourlixir is most notably known for providing 100% natural, high-quality, or as it has also been dubbed, “luxury”, superfoods. It’s more than just a nutraceutical brand, it’s a lifestyle. When your health is a priority, your life becomes more fulfilled in every aspect. Health IS wealth!

Yourlixir has created its own space within the health world by offering something that people in the wellness community are already strong advocates of, but in an accessible way that isn’t being done by other brands that carry similar products. Yourlixir superfoods are not only easier to take but don’t contain any of the fillers, sweeteners, flavorings or unknown additives that are so often found in other superfood powders. In fact, they are also 100% natural, GMO and gluten-free, vegan and paleo friendly — just the pure stuff!

As a health food company, our mission is to spread awareness of not only the powerful benefits of these amazing superfoods but to demonstrate just how easy and enjoyable they are. Health doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless, it can be something exciting to look forward to! We’re proud to have customers of all ages, from all around the world, who see the value in our superfoods. It’s never too early or too late to take control of your health!
