Hi, welcome to the Anne & Ashley Show. I’m Ashley.

Anne
And I’m Anne.

Ashley
We are here live at Conners Clinic. Make sure you share this video, subscribe, like, and follow our channel. Today we are going to be discussing our “Fab Five” Powdered Supplements. They range from gut health to brain support to detox to overall wellness. Each one of them serves their own purpose, but together they make the Fabulous Five. Anne’s going to talk to us first about the gut health section of this combination.

Anne
Yes. So these three here are more related to gut health. And we talk about gut health a lot here because it is foundational to health overall. If you think about the external world, um, and then your internal bodies. So the gut in the digestive tract is really the barrier that separates the things from outside, from your body and the cell that the cells that line your digestive tract.

Anne
It’s only one cell thick. So it’s a very small membrane or barriers. So we want to make sure that the lining of your gut is very well intact. Um, a lot of people do have a leaky gut, you know, they’re not eating healthy, they’re exposed to different toxins. They might be a, you know, eating foods that they have issues with causing an inflammatory response. All of these things can create leaky gut, um, symptoms of the leaky gut. You know, it could be anything from any type of disease diagnosis. It can be, you know, an autoimmune disease. You can have cognitive issues, you can have, um, I don’t know, memory issues, anxiety and cravings for sugar and carbs. So lot of these things can be traced back to a leaky gut. So these items here really help to, um, improve and maintain the integrity of that gut lining.

Anne
So there’s your oneself thick lining and then you have this mucus layer that houses all of the beneficial bacteria in your gut. You need that healthy mucus layer because we know that all of those healthy gut bugs that we talk about, they perform functions that are necessary for your body to work properly. So the sun spectrum here is a prebiotic fiber and it’s got probiotics and well. So again, helping to maintain the integrity of the cell or of the gut lining. It’s also got curcumin points in it. So to help with an inflammatory response and then it’s got co Q 10 in it, which helps with circulation and heart health. Um, the SBI protect has, um, um, it binds to toxins that are within your gut and it helps your body remove them and eliminate them. So this is more of a gentle, uh, kind of support for the integrity of the gut.

Anne
Neither one of these have a taste, so you really can mix them a smoothie. You can mix them with another product that has a taste. So these are really mild in flavor. Um, and the greens first. So this is a, it’s got, I believe like 49 or 50 different super, super foods in here. So it’s a great way to just pack a huge punch for nutrition, minerals, antioxidants, support. There’s digestive enzymes in here. There are some probiotics in here. So, you know, if you think about today’s world in which we live in and we’re so busy all the time, it’s hard to always eat free fresh fruits and vegetables every day in the quantity that we really need to be eating them in. So this can help, um, help get those nutrients into your body so that your body and cells can work optimally. This one here, this original flavor has a hint of spearmint taste to it.

Anne
So we do have other varieties. There’s a chocolate version or there’s a berry version if spearmint really isn’t your, your jam. Um, so those are kind of my favorite. I try to really, these two, um, I’ll take a scoop of this and maybe a, have the that and mix it in and I tried to sip on it throughout the day. So I’m getting a constant dose throughout the day of all of the, um, nutrients in here. And then obviously they’ve got health support. Um, so those are my favorite. This one, um, this one is a little more gentle. This one. Sometimes people have a little bit of, uh, an issue that the elimination, if they use too much of this. So this is just suggested to just start slowly with this, uh, because of that fiber fiber content. And if you are sensitive, you might have a little bit of an issue with that, but.

Ashley
If it gets super leaky

Anne
yeah, yeah.

Ashley
So then it might be that.

Ashley
Yeah, definitely. Okay. So then we have these two. And so this one, pectasol. C is a modified citrus pectin. So it is known to be a gentle kelater for our bodies. So a kelater is something that’s going to pull what doesn’t belong. So toxins obviously don’t belong in our bodies. We’re exposed to them every day. So what this does is it helps attach to them and bind them and it prevents them from being adhesive to being able to stick on anything else in your body. So it helps eliminate them a lot. Um, more, it’s a gentle kelater. You can get some that are a little harder on your body, so you have more maybe of a detox reaction to them. But to this in combination with SBI, protect would really help someone just bind the toxins and get them out nice and gently and not really experienced too much of a reaction.

Ashley
You might still have a detox reaction with this. I know for me, I get just really warm. I don’t know. That’s my detox reaction. Um, or sweating. Like if I took a full scoop I will like get really hot. Um, but otherwise, again, with this you’d want to start small and see how your detox reaction is. Um, but I love it. I think it’s wonderful because they’re exposed to everything every day. Also, people who have detox pathway issues in your genes, this would be a really great product for you. Uh, we have cosmetic toxins, household toxins. Um, some of us get vaccinated. We also have some people who take medications. So those all still serve a purpose. But then it’s when your detox pathways are blocked where it’s no longer serving a purpose cause you should be able to utilize it and then get rid of it.

Ashley
Um, it should have kind of an expiration in your body with defects. You aren’t able to get rid of it on your own or as well. So adding something to assist and bind to those toxins and help your body flush them out a lot quicker, it’s going to prevent damage longterm to yourself as far as disease and illness goes. So this anybody can take, kids can take dogs and cats can take. So I thought that was pretty cool. They get vaccinated too. And so yeah, adding that into their regimen. Don’t think I’m a hippie or weird about that, but I think alternative for your dog care. Why not?

Anne
For sure. Yeah. You think about so many, people get their yards sprayed and then we have these animals then, I mean, my dog is only this tall and she’s around, you know…

Ashley
And covered in it by the time she runs through the grass.

Anne
Right, so.

Ashley
Yes. and bring it into your home.

Anne
Number one, don’t spray and number two then you just have to be mindful and really, yeah. These can help support those detox pathways.

Ashley
Yeah. So this is great. No taste really. I mean, it comes from like the pith of the citrus fruits of lemons and oranges. Um, but regardless, theres no really a taste to it, so you can totally mix it with something else. The optimag neuro is the actually called clear Mag Neurol Um, the Dr Connors brand here. So this is going to be full of magnesium, which we need magnesium for so many reasons, but this one in particular has magnesium L-threonate which is research, behind it to cross our blood brain barrier. That’s great for people with sleep issues, anxiety, people who want to perform better with memory and learning. And it’s also had research with Alzheimer’s behind it and helping them with their memory even. And then students, college students going to school for these big exams. This is something that they’ve used and been tested really well for and their cognitive excellence. So.

Anne
Everyone can use that, literally.

Ashley
For sure. Um, nothing’s wrong with sleeping better. So as far as sleep goes, I can take this during the day and I can be just fine and I’ll sleep like a rock at the end of the day she’ll take it at work and the uhh…

Anne
Wonder why I can’t function because I’m so tired. So.

Ashley
Yeah. So we keep this away from Anne at work.

Anne
Drinks that at night when I go home.

Ashley
So this one is lemon lime and then we also have a mixed Berry, which both are very good.

Anne
Yeah. It tastes so good. Which is why I was trying to increase my liquid intake so I was drinking it at work.

Ashley
Yeah. with flavor.

Anne
Plain water.

Ashley
It’s like a supplement kool-aid.

Anne
It is. It tastes really good.

Ashley
Yeah, it is very refreshing.

Anne
I probably was having too much. Um, and then yeah, the magnesium. Yeah, definitely crossed my blood brain barrier and was shutting things down.

Ashley
It was making her sleepy at work. I picked up the Slack. Don’t worry guys.

Anne
Thank you. I owe you.

Ashley
So these two mixed together I really like because then you get your keylater, your brain health. But the power five we can call it now is all five of these together. So, the gut health the multivitamin, the detoxing and the brain support. What’s cool too is you can give all these to your kids.

Ashley
So if you’re worried about if they’re junk food eaters and you just get good nutrition in them, this is great. This is great for their gut, their leaky gut, um, preventative, even for them and then helping them. If they did have a lot of toxic exposures, this is going to be great. And then brain health for a student, why not sunspectrum of course antiinflammatory properties, especially in the gut I love that piece. You don’t think about the foods you’re eating. Like Cyrex labs show you what you’re sensitive to for foods and why, you might have those inflammation responses.

Anne
And you might not realize…

Anne
So a lot of times, you know, there’s some clinical inflammation, but the constant assault overall can have lasting effects, long term effects and can lead into other things. And so,

Ashley
And those tight junctions can come apart.

Anne
And then you know, if you’ve done your genetics with us, you know, we do talk about the FUT two gene. So if you have defects in the FUT two gene, which is very common.

Ashley
Yeah.

Anne
Then these are great to support that. The FUT two genes, what helps build that healthy mucus layer again for the digestive tract and then microbiome.

Ashley
The MTHFR is such a big deal. You can just start with something so simple, like so simple.

Anne
So good for your MTHFR defects.

Ashley
Yes. So fully. Yeah. So that in kids and you and anybody you know really could benefit from all of these. Yeah. That’s why it’s our favorite, cause we can just pick one and know that it’s doing something good. So we’re gonna actually, we haven’t made our drinks yet today.

Anne
No.

Ashley
We’re going to make ours right now. So I use a full scoop of that Clearmag Neuro So lemon lime.

Anne
And I use the full scoop, of the SBI protect.

Ashley
I’ll try it. Yeah. Oh wait, wait. Were going to keep this one away from Anne.

Anne
Yeah im not going to use that one.

Ashley
It’s only like three nice long a few more hours to work with her here. So I do a full scoop of the SBI protect too,

Anne
And I will do maybe a half scoop of greens. This is a smaller mug. So a lot of half a scoop of greens.

Ashley
I going to do a full scoop because I haven’t had my greens today.

Anne
Yeah did I?

Ashley
I don’t know if you did, I just didn’t.

Anne
I had a big salad last night.

Ashley
I did not. I’ve been fasting.

Anne
I have not been fasting.

Ashley
And the Pectasol C,

Anne
I’ve been feasting.

Ashley
Fasting, feasting , same thing.

Anne
Yeah. I’m going to alternate. Next week, is going to be my fast, this week is my feasting.

Ashley
So I’m only gonna do about a fourth a scoop of the Pectasol C because.

Anne
She doesn’t want to get all sweaty.

Ashley
I don’t. Yeah, thats it.

Anne
At least not in the next couple hours.

Ashley
Yeah. Yeah. This one.

Anne
I haven’t had this one yet

Ashley
You should do the scope.

Anne
Let’s see what happens to me.

Ashley
And then sun spectrum. I’m going to do a fourth a scoop because I don’t take this regularly. I take the SBI protect a little bit more regularly than the sun spectrum. This also has a fiber component too, which is if you’re looking for antiinflammatory fiber. This is perfect for you.

Anne
Oh it looks good.

Ashley
Yours Yeah, sure. Mine’s just a tower of powders. But, I like that you can add this in with a smoothie,

Anne
Right.

Ashley
So you’ll just mix it until it dissolves. Or nut milk.

Anne
Yeah.

Ashley
If you are a juicer,

Anne
Could totally drop it in a juice. You can even use this to make different things. Um, yeah. You know, I have put, well really the Berry kind I put in with plain yogurt just to give plain yogurt a flavor that doesn’t have all of the, you know, chemicals, sugars in it. Um, I haven’t tried this one in plain yogurt, but I didn’t make a mint, um, a chocolate mint cup type thing.

Ashley
Oh yeah. Like a peanut butter cup.

Anne
Yeah. Like a peanut butter cup only. I use this and it was mint so chocolate mint.

Ashley
That’s awesome.

Anne
That was really good. Like a couple drops of peppermint oil, essential oil as well to just kind of pump up the peppermint flavor.

Ashley
We also.

Anne
That was really good.

Ashley
When we did the LaCroix.

Anne
And we yup.

Ashley
We put carbonated water that was really good, we could put all of this in a carbonated drink and make it kind of bubbly and fun.

Anne
Yeah just be creative.

Ashley
Yeah just make your supplements fun.

Anne
Yeah, this is enjoyable.

Ashley
