More about MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist from dōTERRA®
The second step to the MetaPWR™ Metabolic System is MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist. MetaPWR™ Assist is all about balancing your blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels are among the most significant health markers. It’s normal that these levels naturally fluctuate during the day, depending on eating and activity patterns. But, excessively high peaks and low valleys are hallmarks of metabolic problems.
MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist may reduce the absorption of simple carbohydrates and sugars.* Clinical researchers at dōTERRA® developed this blend, which uses a superior process to maximize the active component in mulberry leaf extract: 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ). More research is needed to confirm the initial findings, but pre-clinical studies suggest DNJ may help to regulate and stabilize post-prandial (post meal) blood glucose levels, reduce the absorption of carbohydrates and sugar and contribute to healthy fat metabolism.*
The importance of managing blood sugar levels
Roller-coasters can be an enjoyable form of recreation. The anticipation of the climb and exhilaration of the drop often lead to long lines and excited enthusiasts. While a roller-coaster ride once or twice a year shouldn’t cause long-term issues, if you ride a roller-coaster multiple times a day, week after week, you might develop real issues. Blood sugar levels are like that; over time, the sustained elevation of blood sugar levels can have some serious negative consequences for the body. And blood sugar spikes create inflammation in your vascular system, potentially leading to serious problems.
A whole-food diet and regular exercise are the best ways to promote healthy blood sugar regulation; but, considering that under 7% of the US adult population has optimal cardio-metabolic health, most of us could use a little extra support. You can get that support, very effectively, from dōTERRA’s MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist. It truly is an amazing way to get that help.

What is MetaPWR ™ Assist?
MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist is part of the MetaPWR™ Metabolic System, from dōTERRA®, which is made up of products that support metabolic health.* It builds upon the MetaPWR™ Metabolic Blend and features additional herbs and phytonutrients.
In a recent pre-clinical, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial that monitored glucose levels in 15 patients, results confirmed MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist, when taken before meals, decreased the glycemic impact of carbohydrate-heavy meals and lowered blood sugar spikes.* However, more clinical research is needed to confirm these findings.
How Does MetaPWR Assist Work?
MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist contains multiple natural compounds that have been found, in clinical studies, to promote healthy metabolism.* Chief among them is mulberry leaf extract, which slows the absorption of all types of carbohydrates and promotes healthy regulation of normal-range blood sugar levels.* The iminosugars of the mulberry interact with the digestive enzymes that metabolize carbohydrates, slowing their digestion, so the glucose doesn’t hit your blood stream as quickly.*
When you take MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist with a meal, the mulberry extract helps your body slow the digestion of the carbohydrates you just ate.* Of course, MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist is supposed to be paired with a healthy, balanced diet. You need to eat nutrient-rich, fiber-filled complex carbohydrates for good health. From there, MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist can help keep your blood glucose levels steady.*

Grapefruit Essential Oil
Referred to as a “forbidden fruit” and one of the “Seven Wonders of Barbados,” grapefruit was first documented in 1750 by Welshman Rev. Griffith Hughes. The name “grapefruit” is attributed to the fruits growing in clusters which resemble those of grapes. dōTERRA® grapefruit essential oil can create an uplifting, stimulating environment — ideal when motivating yourself throughout the day. The main chemical constituent of grapefruit essential oil is limonene, which may support metabolism, when taken internally.*
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit. Lemon oil has a clean, fresh citrus scent that provides an uplifting, positive boost throughout the day. It also adds a refreshing twist when added to water. dōTERRA’s lemon oil is sourced in Italy and Brazil, which offer ideal growing conditions for producing this bright, tangy essential oil.
Peppermint Essential Oil
The peppermint plant is a hybrid of water mint and spearmint, and was first described by Carl Linnaeus in 1753. A high menthol content — like that found in the dōTERRA® Peppermint essential oil — distinguishes the best quality peppermint oil from other products. The sharp, sweet scent of peppermint essential oil can create an exhilarating, stimulating environment during physical activity.
Ginger Essential Oil
dōTERRA® Ginger essential oil is derived from the fresh rhizome of the ginger plant — the subterranean stalk of a plant that shoots out the root system. An excellent digestive tonic, ginger essential oil has great internal benefits for the body.* It’s known for its ability to soothe the stomach when ingested.*
Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
Cinnamon bark essential oil is derived from a tropical, evergreen tree that grows up to 45 feet high and has highly fragrant bark, leaves and flowers. The sweet, spicy aroma of cinnamon is loved around the world. Cinnamon oil is frequently used in mouth rinses and chewing gum – not to mention flavored toothpicks – for its iconic flavor.* Experimental research has shown cinnamaldehyde, a key chemical constituent of cinnamon bark essential oil, also supports healthy metabolic function, when taken internally.*
Mulberry Leaf Extract
MetaPWR™ Metabolic Assist contains multiple natural compounds that have been clinically demonstrated to promote healthy metabolism.* Chief among them is mulberry leaf extract, which slows the absorption of carbohydrates and promotes healthy regulation of normal-range blood sugar levels.*
