About Vital Reds by Gundry MD

In this day and age, you’re probably feeling more and more worn out, as all of life’s demands begin to take their toll. You also don’t have the time to eat as well as you should, so you’re looking for “quick fixes” to provide some support.

To this extent, Vital Reds by Gundry MD promises to deliver a combination of 21 polyphenol-rich superfruits, along with dozens of natural fat burning ingredients, that help boost energy and metabolism, improve digestion, and support healthy cholesterol levels. It even claims to control fat around the belly, thighs, and waist—without any side effects!

All you need to do is mix one scoop of Vital Reds powder into the beverage of your choice, and drink one glass per day on a consistent basis. Gundry MD claims you may experience a “charge of energy” as soon as your first day of use, with “dramatic” results after 2-3 weeks.

Well, if you’re looking for maximum nutrition, Gundry MD certainly makes Vital Reds seem like the way to go. But will it really provide “energy at any age,” or will it leave your expectations flat on their face? Here’s what we learned during our research…

What Is Energy Dysfunction?

On one of Gundry MD’s websites, they mention that Vital Reds was “designed to help reduce the fatigue and energy dysfunction which act as warning signs for much more serious health problems.” Just what is this condition, and is it as serious as Dr. Gundry claims?

Although it’s easy to define each of these words, we didn’t uncover any evidence that “energy dysfunction” is a formal medical diagnosis. In other words, we think this is just an overly fancy term for “low energy.” What can cause this?

Low energy isn’t a diagnosis either, as it’s generally a side effect related to some other medical condition. Like what? Fatigue can be the result of poor lifestyle habits (not eating healthy, getting enough exercise, etc.), insufficient sleep, excess stress, and much more. As such, if you’re regularly tired, be sure to schedule an appointment with your doctor, who can help you narrow down the cause in order to provide some relief.

What Are Polyphenols? How Are They Beneficial?

We won’t get too science-y here, but polyphenols are compounds that contain a large number of key micronutrients and antioxidants, which are thought to help plants avoid damage caused by ultraviolet radiation and pathogens. As a broad group, polyphenols can be broken down into four different categories, based on their molecular structure: flavonoids, stilbenes, lignans, and phenolic acids.

When humans consume polyphenol-rich foods (many of which give foods a distinctive bright color, including red, hence the supplement’s name), these antioxidants are thought to provide a wide range of benefits; everything from fighting heart disease to reducing the risk of stroke.

Now, the problem is that 1) there are thousands of different polyphenols, 2) science doesn’t have a complete understanding of all of these substances, and 3) not all polyphenols are absorbed by the body in the same way. Does this hold true with Vital Reds? Let’s take a look.

What Ingredients Does Vital Reds Contain?

According to the supplement label listed on the Gundry MD website, Vital Reds contains the following:

  • Thiamin 1.5mg
  • Riboflavin 1.7mg
  • Niacin 20mg
  • Vitamin B6 2g
  • Folate 400mcg
  • Vitamin B12 6mcg
  • Biotin 300mcg
  • Pantothenic Acid 10mcg
  • Selenium 70mcg
  • Chromium 200mcg
  • Polyphenol Blend 1,540mg: Organic carrot, organic flax seed, organic apple peel, mulberry, black currant, apple, cranberry, papaya, mango, organic red raspberry, acai, organic strawberry, grape skin, organix beet, aronia berry, blueberry, pomegranate, blackberry, acerola extract, apple pectin, grape seed, pineapple, orange, watermelon, grapefruit, plum, pear, lemon, lime, cherry, peach, berberin HCl
  • Metabolic Boosting Blend 216mg: Cinnamon, ginger root, green tea, white tea, bitter melon, turmeric, black pepper
  • Digestive Support Blend 3 billion CFU: Bacillus coagulans, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium lactis, L. reuteri

While each of these first ingredients plays an important role in optimizing health, unless you’re deficient, there doesn’t seem to be enough clinical evidence that supplementation will provide any benefits. The one exception to this might be selenium, which is listed as possibly effective for improving antioxidant efficacy and reducing abnormal cholesterol levels.

Regarding the polyphenols; as we mentioned in the previous section, there’s a lot we don’t know, but it’s thought that no one polyphenol is better than the next. However, medical professionals recommend eating a wide variety of polyphenol-containing foods to optimize their benefits, which Vital Reds seems to deliver. Just be sure that you’re eating plenty of healthy fats with your polyphenols, as this will help them be more bioavailable.

As far as Vital Reds’ metabolic blend, there doesn’t seem to be enough clinical evidence to state with any certainly that these ingredients will boost your metabolism or help regulate your weight in any meaningful way.

Finally, they HighYa team has written extensively about probiotics over the years, which are clinically proven to treat IBS-related symptoms, bloating, and gassiness; boost energy, and improve immune response.

Are There Any Vital Reds Side Effects?

Although it seems that Vital Reds includes a mishmash of ingredients (at least from a clinical efficacy standpoint), the good news is that they probably won’t cause any harm.

In fact, other than perhaps flushing from the niacin content, you probably won’t experience anything but mild digestive upset from taking Vital Reds, if anything at all.

How Much Does Vital Reds Cost?

Vital Reds by Gundry MD is available in the following quantities:

  • 1 Jar: $49.95
  • 3 Jars: $134.85
  • 6 Jars: $254.70

All Gundry MD orders include free shipping and come with a 90-day money back guarantee, less S&H charges.

In order to request a refund, you’ll need to call Gundry MD’s customer service at (800) 852-0477.

Given it’s relatively reasonable price and claimed benefits, are customers pleased with Gundry MD’s Vital Reds?

What Are Customers Saying About Gundry MD’s Vital Reds Supplement?

We specialize in bringing you reviews as soon as products are released, so there weren’t any online customer reviews for Vital Reds at the time of our research.

The good news is that we’ve received a couple pieces of feedback on Gundry MD’s Correct + Calm Redness Relief Cream, which had a 5-star average rating. Both customers claimed they experienced beneficial results that improved with regular use, although this doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll experience the same with Vital Reds. No reviews were available for Dr. Gundry’s third product, Lectin Shield.

Who’s the man behind Vital Reds? Dr. Steven Gundry, M.D. is a board certified thoracic cardiovascular surgeon who also founded the Center for Restorative Medicine in Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, CA. Not only this, by Dr. Gundry is responsible for inventing several medical technologies, including the Gundry Retrograde Cardioplegia Cannula, the Skoosh Venous Cannula, the Gundry Lateral Tunnel, and the Gundry Ministernomy.

According to the bio on his website, Dr. Gundry believes that “our mind and body are locked into an eons-old computer program that is very fundamental, logical and, ultimately, easy to control.” Thus, the crux of his approach is to use foods and other natural ingredients to control this computer and help patients lose weight, “reverse and or eradicate serious diseases such as high blood pressure and, in some cases, even cancer.”

Should You Make Vital Reds by Gundry MD a Crucial Part of Your Diet?

As more and more of us begin to understand the importance of keeping healthy, hundreds of companies have rushed in with a vast range of products that promise to make the process easier. In fact, even if you’re only looking for antioxidant red and green powders, you have dozens of options, including Aloha Green Juice, Organifi, and many more.

Is there anything that distinguishes Gundry MD’s Vital Reds from these other brands? Although prices are mostly the same, Vital Reds contains a blend of additional ingredients like vitamins and probiotics, which isn’t something you’ll always encounter.

As we outlined in the Ingredients section above though, the clinical evidence indicates you might experience the most noticeable benefits from Vital Reds’ probiotics, more than anything else.

The good news is that, unlike many other supplements companies, Gundry MD doesn’t enroll Vital Reds in any kind of autoship program, so you won’t receive any additional product until you decide to place an order. And if you decide you don’t like it, you can take advantage of their 90-day refund policy—although you’ll lose a few dollars in S&H.

  • Great results!

    Within a month of staying Viral Reds, I noticed a significant boost in my energy. I'm 59 years old and would typically be tired after a workout, and if I had not rested well the night before I would be completely exhausted if I tried to work out, like on the couch the rest of the day exhausted.

    One day, about a month into taking the supplement, I noticed after a workout I felt really good and then it dawned on me I also had not slept well the night before, and I thought to myself, "Oh my gosh, this stuff is really working!" I've been on the supplement for about five months and am still enjoying the benefits. Also, I'm sensitive to any supplement that "boosts" your metabolism because they keep me up at night. Vital Reds has never had this side effect, even if I take it in the evening! I love it!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Charging rhino on the treadmill

    Vital Reds is the real deal for someone who trains as hard as I do at 55 getting ready for the Ironman 2018 in Kona Hawaii. I take two scoops with warm water on an empty stomach 5-6 times a week and charge forward in the gym like a charging rhino and get eyeballs looking at me like "how does he do it?" My day is vibrant all day long. We are all wonderfully made, so please take care of your temple.

    Great product

    I have been taking Vital Reds for three months. I put the product in water, shake and enjoy the great berry flavor.

    The Vital Reds, along with mostly a Paleo diet, have reduced my blood pressure to normal range and my doctor said to discontinue my blood pressure meds.

    I am delighted with the product and my great results and plan to continue its use.

    Thank you Dr. Gundry.

    Loved it at first.

    I have been taking Vital Reds for five months. At first, it worked great. I felt more energetic and my digestive system was working much better and I was more regular.

    My concern for the last couple weeks though is I have felt light-headed, foggy, and dizzy when I'm at work. I move around a lot because I am a server. I also have been getting headaches. I am wondering if it is this vitamin supplements. I stopped taking it for a couple of days and was feeling better, but then took some this morning and the light-headedness came back. I thought I would sit and look for some reviews on other side effects. I see that there are some other people that have had the same issue.

    I'm not sure if I should continue taking it. Maybe I am not taking it right, or it is shooting my sugar up? I tried to eat with it before I take it. I mix it up with half juice and half water, and I drink it all at once.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Doesn't work

    I thought I was saving money by purchasing several bottles. I felt that it would work because of Dr. Stephen Gundry selling it.

    I was wrong. It does not work. Customer service told me to give it more time and to take it more than once a day. I gave that a try, but it did not work.

    It is too late to return; waste of money.

    Not seeing any improvements

    Well, I've gone through my first bottle of six, and I see no difference. I'm 73 and have put on 5 lbs. I thought I would have at least lost 5 lbs. I've always been in excellent shape, go to the gym for two hours every other day, workout on machines and free weights. Don't have any more or less energy. Any suggestions?

    I'm willing to give it one more bottle, and if no results, I am returning the product.

    Within 30 days I noticed an end of the chronic constipation and gas that had been with me for a year

    I am a recovering cancer patient who had 1) chronic constipation, 2) chronic gas-belching and 3) low energy for more than a whole year. In the morning when I would wake up, my whole body was aching before I even got out of bed. Some of the medications I have to take as cancer treatment cause constipation and probably the gas also. I was taking stool softeners, laxative, and Metamucil (all three) every single day. I have to take one of the cancer medications for the next five years and wasn’t looking forward to it, when in January and February I felt as though I was on a rollercoaster ride: a couple of days or week with weak, aching legs, low energy, followed by days when I felt strong and energized. On the days of weakness, I couldn’t even walk for ten minutes, nevermind the “required” thirty minutes a day.

    I started taking Vital Reds in March, and within 30 days I noticed an end of the chronic constipation and gas that had been with me for a year. Whoah, this stuff really works. By April I was able to walk two miles. I no longer have weakness and aching legs. I feel that Vital Reds has given me my functioning life back.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    About four months, not what I was hoping for

    • Hudson Valley, NY,
    • May 4, 2017

    I have used Vital Reds for about four months religiously, once a day, and the flavor is not bad. I actually enjoy the berry-like flavor.

    I was just trying to lose some weight, but with watching my calories, it has not worked. I figured I would give it another week, and another week, and another week. It has not met the expectations that I had with the information given to me.

    I am trying to get a refund for my three jars since I am almost out at this time. I can't say that I did not try, but it just does not work for me. The 100% guarantee is hard to find since there is no way to speak to someone, other than posting a review.

    Amazing Product

    I have only been using this product for one month but I love it. It tastes like raspberry Kool-Aid. I bought it for my health and can not wait to do blood tests again. Even though it is not a weight loss product it curbs my appetite and I have lost 12 pounds this month. I have no desire to snack and I am hoping to loose the other 15 pounds I want to loose.

    I hope others try it.

    Bull!

    I've been taking Vital Reds religiously for four months and felt no difference whatsoever. I must conclude, therefore, that this a complete and total BS. Do not be fooled. This man is making a fortune in selling something that does not work. I would like a refund, but that's not possible.

    Fainted after taking Vital Reds and eating a bar of dark chocolate

    • United Kingdom,
    • May 2, 2017

    I was impressed with Dr. Gundry's videos and bought one tube of Vital Reds. I have REACTIVE Hypoglycemia and have been keeping a food diary for the last eleven weeks. I wanted to believe Vital Reds would improve my energy levels. In fact, I think it does, but for me, there were side effects.

    For example, at the weekend I was busy in the garden and ate a bar of dark chocolate with 70% plus cocoa, after while taking a shower I felt light headed and tried to lie down, but fainted on the way to the bedroom. Coincidentally, I had already ordered a further three tubs of Vital Reds. Because I am in the UK, I have now paid a further £41 ($52.99) in import duty.

    I apologize, but I do not think Vital Reds agrees with me, and I think it makes my blood sugar rise too quickly and then crashes. Please, may I have a refund for four tubs of Vital Reds? What is their return address for a refund? Thank you.

    P.S. I have stated facts in this review, and I would suggest any person wishing to buy Vital Reds needs to look at their reasons.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I'm sorry you had that experience. I have reactive hypoglycemia too but haven't had an issue. To the contrary, it has curbed my appetite and cravings without feeling blood sugar issues.
