Today we're excited to talk to Dr. Ashley Anderson about the new MetaPWR System. Dr. Anderson, thank you so much for joining us today.

Dr. Anderson: Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to chat with you.

Importance of Metabolic Health

doTERRA: I am excited as well. So, let's dive right in with my question of the MetaPWR System includes, you know, a range of products that are synergistically formulated to supplement our optimal metabolic health. So, what is metabolic health and why does pretty much everyone need to do more to support theirs?

Dr. Anderson: That's a great question. You know, so metabolic health can be an extremely wide topic in conversation. But just to kind of pull it all in, when we talk about metabolic health, what we're talking about is how your body generates and processes energy and basically how it manages glucose, which is our blood sugar, right?

So, the way our body's able to manage that determines so many different things about our bodies, our blood sugar levels, how much weight we carry, our blood lipid levels like cholesterol, and then even our blood pressure.

So, when our metabolic health is not optimal, we see an increase in all of these cardiometabolic problems. So, our culture is really set up to not be well, you know, we live in a super high stress kind of lifestyle. We also are in this microwave culture where most people eat on the go. We're moving fast, not super active, and all of those things negatively impacts our metabolic health. And so, your research is showing that 6.8% of the population has optimal cardiometabolic health, which means mostly all of us are on the struggle of us in this area.

And I definitely will say, especially prior to those first 60 days of MetaPWR, I definitely was not in that 6.8%. I'm not even quite sure that I'm there yet. We've got some work to do still, but I’m at least on the journey. But yeah, this metabolic health piece is huge, and it encompasses so much of our general health and wellbeing that we really, really need to address it.

doTERRA: That is an incredible foundation and like you said, really frames this issue that we have as, kind of the human race, with getting this optimal metabolic health.

Dr. Anderson: Seriously.

The MetaPWR System

doTERRA: And now, these products are brand new so, can you just give us a quick rundown of what the products are that are included in the MetaPWR System?

Dr. Anderson: Sure. So, yeah, there's, there's a ton of products that I promise you, you want them all, okay? The MetaPWR oil, I mean, it also comes in a softgel. I like to use them a little bit separately and we'll talk about my regimen later. But I think it's really based upon the way you prefer to experience it. The softgels are extremely convenient, right? You can throw them in your purse or in your backpack or whatever and take them off for the day. The oil you can put in your water and then we've got MetaPWR Beadlets and Gum, okay?

So, this is your "I have cravings" or "I know I just ate lunch at noon and it's one and I'm hungry." That's your fix for that, okay? I definitely have to say the gum is my favorite. The beadlets are also incredible.

So, when I'm on a ration, like in a trial or you only get 30 days worth of gum, you know, we have to use a lot more. But yeah, those are really amazing options with the MetaPWR Oil blend in it. And so, while we're talking about that, what's even in MetaPWR Blend? I'm so glad you asked.

Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger, and Cinnamon. So, those of us that were Slim & Sassy fans you know, we remember those, that oil blend. So, just tweaked to give us more power so the oil, softgel, beadlets, and gum that is one of the huge pieces that helps with curbing cravings, supporting our metabolic health, and inhibiting fat cell maturation. Which was oh so important to me.

Okay, then the MetaPWR Assist is one of those shockingly sneaky products. You know, it's designed to help us decrease the spikes in our blood sugar after meals. So, you know, you may think, well, I don't have issues managing my blood sugar. For those of us who don't, you have normal, healthy blood sugar. We know that those spikes in our glucose cause aging. We don't want that. I don't want that. But most of us have experienced on the other side of a good meal that crash that happens. You know, you feel amazing at first, like, oh, this this was such a good meal.

And then 30 minutes to an hour later, you just want to put your head down on your desk and take a nap. What I've noticed with the MetaPWR is that those peaks and valleys have been neutralized so I can eat my meal and go on about my day.

I'm not having those crashes, so I know that what that's doing is helping balancing our insulin levels and our blood sugar levels to just keep things even, which is incredible for our metabolic health. So, definitely supporting our blood sugar response stabilizes energy throughout the day, which is what we all need, right?

doTERRA: Absolutely.

Dr. Anderson: And then the MetaPWR Advantage, I saved that for last because it was a product that I wasn't really sure what it was going to do for me. You know, when we think about collagen, most people just think skin, right? I know that I did. I'm like, oh, my skin is going to be amazing.

But what I didn't realize is how much it supports our lean muscle and connective tissue, helps with the elasticity and firmness of our skin, and then even helping with cognitive function. Oh, and there's this whole piece about activating longevity genes. I mean, who does not want that?

So, the MetaPWR Advantage, it's in a, it's a powder format, which we learned is better for us, but it has not one or two collagen peptides like most of the other products in the market, it has nine, which is amazing. And then we also have NMN, which helps our body produce NAD+ which we need for energy.

Like it literally by the time we're 50 that NAD+ levels are about half of what they were when we were 20, which is why as we age and you add, especially if you're a woman add in hormone shifting and we have such issues of managing our weight and managing energy or even having energy to do our normal daily activities.

So, this product really gives us a huge bang for just longevity, lifespan, healthspan. And then that mental clarity piece has been a game changer. So, like I said, it's a lot of products. I know it can be overwhelming, but you absolutely want them all in your life for like ever.

doTERRA: Yes. I mean, those all sound like every single benefit that I want every day.

Dr. Anderson: Seriously.

Dr. Anderson’s MetaPWR Regimen

doTERRA: Now, you mentioned letting us know a little bit about your regimen, and I think that might be one of the biggest questions that people have with this new line is what product to use when. So, what is your routine with all of these products?

Dr. Anderson: Yeah. So, all right, first thing in the morning, when I get up, I take the MetaPWR Advantage with water. I do it in my shaker bottle, which has been recommended to get it to dissolve as good as possible. So, I take that MetaPWR Advantage as soon as I get up in the morning. Normally I work out in the morning, so I try to take that about 30 minutes before my workout and then I'll go to the gym.

I use the MetaPWR Oil in my water. I will probably put three or four drops in my water. I'm drinking that through my exercise, throughout the whole entire day. And what I found is that when I do that, because I wasn't doing it at first, but when I'm doing that, I have way less cravings. Sugar cravings was a big issue for me, and that has been a way that has really helped me control it. And I'm also a snacker and grazer it helps me control that as well. MetaPWR in the water pretty much all day.

I like the softgels with my meals, so I try to do one of them three times a day. And then I also do the MetaPWR Assist with my lunch. My lunch is the biggest meal of the day for me and so I'll take the assist 15 or 30 minutes before I eat lunch.

And then I got lucky because they sent an extra box of MetaPWR to founders. So, I got enough, or I could take two a day. And I heard Emily right say on a video that she takes two a day because she's a super user and her skin looks amazing. So, I was like, I'm going to try that and to that. And it truly has made a significant difference.

So, I do my second MetaPWR in my protein shake midday. So, I have my midday snack like a couple of hours after lunch and then I'll have the second Advantage then. Yeah, it's like a whole day of MetaPWR, but I feel so good. And you know, like you mentioned that these are all of the, the things that you want to experience in your life. And I didn't realize how much I needed them until this trial.

doTERRA: Absolutely. And it's so nice that you have it with you throughout the day as all of these different products because you want that support throughout the day, you don't want it just in the morning or just at night.

Dr. Anderson: Absolutely.

doTERRA: You want your metabolism supported throughout the day so you can keep having all of those amazing benefits.

Dr. Anderson: Mm.

MetaPWR and Lifelong Vitality

doTERRA: Now. How does this MetaPWR System work together with our Lifelong Vitality Products?

Dr. Anderson: Oh, yeah. One of the big things that I want people to realize about that is there is not an either or here. Right. I think they are two separate product lines and do totally, not totally two separate things, but they truly support each other.

So, we need Lifelong Vitality for the nutrients, support, and all of the amazing things that we know Lifelong Vitality does. But really specifically, there are multiple nutrients that we do not get adequate numbers of or amounts of in our diet that are required for optimal glucose regulation.

Okay, so there are things like vitamin D, magnesium, I mean, there's at least 15 different nutrients in Lifelong Vitality that support metabolism and glucose and insulin management.

So, I think MetaPWR by itself is incredible for managing all of the things we just talked about. However, if you do it without Lifelong Vitality, I don't think it has as much of a mighty punch.

I say that Lifelong Vitality is an accelerant for MetaPWR. Like if you've got your nutrition down, that foundation is covered and you're getting all of those nutrients. You're working on detoxification and keeping the toxins out with their antioxidants, MetaPWR can go and do its thing.

So, I definitely recommend them both together. I think you get the maximum benefits from having them both. And we want to have good metabolic health we can't do that without nutrition, with nutrient deficiencies.

doTERRA: I love that. And I love the idea that, you know, Lifelong Vitality, just lifts MetaPWR even higher and lets you experience quicker, better, more amazing benefits.

Dr. Anderson: Yeah.

doTERRA: So, you mentioned a little bit earlier that you had this opportunity to be part of our pilot program with the MetaPWR System. Can you tell us what benefits you saw in your personal wellness and your metabolic health during that time?

Dr. Anderson’s Experience with MetaPWR

Dr. Anderson: Sure. I would say right away, the first thing that I noticed was mental clarity and the ability to focus as a single mom of two toddlers, one of which still likes to wake up and ask me for milk at night. My sleep is broken consistently, and I sometimes can feel like I'm in this fog and I can't put my sentences together right. And trying to go from managing the kids to managing my business and doTERRA and then my medical practice, I just am done, like mentally.

But that was one of the first things that I noticed that my thoughts felt clear. I felt like that cloud had lifted and ultimately it put me in such a better mood because I'm like, I can think I am clear, I am able to feel like I'm making clear decisions. I'm able to actually execute the thoughts and ideas that I have and not crash at the end of the night.

So, that was one of the first things that I noticed over the first well, the first six weeks, I was able to release 15 pounds of extra body weight that had me about in tears, girl.

Like, you know, I for the longest time, I guess you could say, for the last five years or so since I was pregnant with my first son, I just struggled with my weight. And I, you know, I was a high level athlete. I competed in pageants and fitness competitions and all of that. So, I've seen my body at optimal weight, right? And I've seen my body with optimal like muscle mass. I knew what to do and I felt like I was doing those things and it wasn't working.

And I could not get past 200 pounds on the scale. I just couldn't do it. So, I was, really before I got that email about participating in the trial, I was about at that point where I was like, "All right, girl, well, this is the new mom body." You better get used to it like this is what it's going to be.

And you know, that definitely has effects on your confidence and just the way that you show up every day in the world. And so that was a huge deal for me when I got on the scale that first time and saw 198, I literally like got off, turned it off, turned it back on.

I guess that's right. And because it seemed to happen so quickly. But I think that's what is so beautiful about MetaPWR is it gives your body what it needs, when it needs it. That whole personal wellness realized is incredibly, I mean, it's so important because our bodies all need the same thing. But that was one thing that my body really, really needed. So, six weeks, 15 pounds and I think the other piece of that, besides the actual number on the scale, was the lean muscle mass that I was able to see was marked.

Like I literally was like, is that an ab muscle because I can't believe that. It's been so long since I saw you. Hey, friend. But that that was huge for me. And then the crashing after meals, like I mentioned earlier, when we're talking about the Assist product, I always, especially lunch time, I had shifted where I had my bigger meals at lunch anyway because I didn't want to go to bed, I know that's not great for your metabolic health anyway to go to bed with a full stomach.

So, I try to have my big meals at lunch. But what that caused for me was I needed to put my head down at like 2:00 in the afternoon when I close the door in my office, and I just can't afford to do it right? So, I noticed that and very quickly as well as I'm not crashing after those meals and my energy is very, very sustained throughout the day.

Speaking of energy, like I mentioned earlier, my sleep patterns have not changed because my kids have not changed. But I do, I have so much more energy. And, you know, I feel like I can finish work, do the things I need to do, and then go play with my kids and not feel like I just want to lay on the couch and watch them play on their tablets or something.

We go to the park, and I can run around and have that stamina with them, which is amazing. And then the one thing that I was not expecting was the skin changes. And I say that just because I've probably spent the last 15 years working really hard on my skin, and so I felt like it probably looked about as good as it was going to. And I thought even like with the skin in my abdomen from carrying two very large children, that that was just kind of going to be a thing.

And my mother, at my youngest son's birthday party, in August, she was like, "What are you doing differently with your skin regiment? Your skin looks amazing." I was like, nothing. I thought about it and like, oh, I'm taking MetaPWR.

And so, I had noticed that I have been less inclined to put on makeup every day. You know, in that first 30 days, I literally think I put on makeup like three or four times, and it was for specific events. And it's just because then I look in the mirror, I'm like, Man, your skin is glowing and looks great. I don't even touch it. We're just going to leave that alone. And that was huge. But I noticed over time as well, the skin on my abdomen was more firm and it is more firm and it's just a lot more smooth than it was.

So, yeah, I, I'm, I'm sold. I'm 100%. I told Emily on our Zoom, like, I don't ever want to live without this. It's literally changed my whole entire life. And in a way that makes me have hope that I can be healthy, I can manage my weight, it can be integrated into my crazy busy lifestyle, and we can still find success. So, that's been really important to me, and I don't want to go back this the new normal it's got to be forever.

doTERRA: Yes, that is incredible. And what's amazing is I feel like everyone that I have talked to that had the opportunity to be part of this pilot program, has a similar powerful story where they have just seen very quickly what these products have been able to do for them in their lives.

Dr. Anderson: Yeah.

doTERRA: Ashley, before we end, like you said, you're hooked for life, you're going to keep doing this, so can you tell us what you're hoping to achieve in the coming months by integrating this MetaPWR System into your daily routine?

Dr. Anderson: Sure. You know, I am thrilled with the success so far. You know, from the mental clarity, the skin, I'd love to see how much tighter our skin can be with this MetaPWR. So, I'm looking forward to that. I definitely love to just sustain the energy, the mental clarity, the ability to focus. As far as weight, I mean, my goal is to get back to my college playing weight. So, I'm probably about, I'd say about 15 more pounds from that.

So yeah, I'd like to get there and then use the products to maintain it that that's the goal because you know, we talk about weight in America and a lot of times in a very unhealthy way. And I think why I love this product line so much is that it allows you to do it in a way that is sustainable and healthy. Like we're not putting the strain on your heart and with the yo-yo-ing, like the up and down, up and down. This gives you something that you can do every day to create these lifestyle habits with healthy eating and exercise that can be carried on forever.

It's not something that you have to stop in six weeks, like, this is a lifestyle and I'm really, really looking forward to that.

doTERRA: Absolutely. Ashley has been incredible to talk to you today to learn more about the MetaPWR System and our metabolic health and also to hear your amazing experience with these products.

Dr. Anderson: Thank you for having me. This has been awesome.
