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

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.

    Dr. Gundry gets paid to promote this company. He is not an owner!

    • Jupiter, FL,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I really wanted to love this product. I started taking it and noticed an increase in energy, until I didn't several days later. I actually started to get strange symptoms and realized I was having an allergic reaction to the additives, mainly the citric acid that is grown in black mold and the MSG that is hidden under the name "Natural Flavors."

    I called the company and at first, the guy who answered played dumb to my questioning why they would use such a frightening food additives, and then he explained to me Dr. Gundry is not involved in the company. He gets paid to use his name and spread the word on the product. He did not make the product and has no say in what is put in it. Game over when asked if the Natural Flavors are really being MSG. Customer Service said they couldn't deny that it isn't used. Bingo!

    I stopped the product and five days later felt like myself again.

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

  • Vital Reds is a great product but annoying marketing

    • Roswell, GA,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I love the Vital Reds product and use it daily. When it is discounted properly to right around $35-$40, I consider it a good value. I just don't resonate with the sales techniques of constantly dangling the price around and find it very annoying. I will continue using it and replenish my inventory when I can buy at the lower price. Thank you for having such a high-quality product.

  • Don't buy unless you want to be harassed with endless sales calls forever!

    • Miami, FL,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    The product is ok. I didn't really notice all of the benefits they claim, but my biggest grip is that they harass you with endless sales calls every week. They are so annoying and I have told them to stop, but the phone calls continue. They are very sneaky too in that they use a phone number in your area, so the area code on the caller ID is a local number. They do this so that there is a higher probability that you will pick up the phone. So the bottom line is that I wish I had never been suckered into buying this lifetime of solicitation!

  • No positive effect from using it for three months

    • Taranaki, New Zealand,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    My wife and I have been trialing it for three months with no positive effects. My wife's cholesterol has even gone up during that period (been stable for a long time previously).

    I would not recommend this to a friend or anyone. I do see it as a scam, and find that the refund rules are set in order to avoid having to pay the refund.

  • Good stuff, just expensive

    I've been taking Vital Reds for about two months now. Lots more energy, but I didn't know how much until I didn't take it yesterday. By early afternoon I was dragging anchor. Won't make that mistake again.

    I enjoy the taste; it's not too strong. I ordered a six-jar supply to get the best value and have given a couple of jars to friends to try out. I enjoy the boost this product gives me in the morning.

  • Vital Reds has done wonders regulating my digestive tract.

    • Olympia, WA,
    • Aug 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I started using Vital Reds in hopes of a miracle. I had my thyroid removed over a year ago and have struggled ever since. I knew thyroid replacement would be a hit and miss. I have been cold, tired and sometimes just plain foggy. I had no grand expectations because my thyroid is a pill. I do think it has helped. I've been less tired and thus more active. I have been warmer, but it is summer. But this is why I love Vital Reds.

    I had my gall bladder removed in 1988 and have had diarrhea ever since. I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find something to help. It was really kind of funny; I wasn't expecting it to help. On day five it just suddenly hit me that the diarrhea had stopped. I was thrilled. Another week went by and still no diarrhea. I decided to stop the Vital Reds and see what happened. I take the Vital Reds first thing in the morning, and by that afternoon the diarrhea was back. I started taking the Vital Reds again. As long as I take Vital Reds in the morning, I have no diarrhea. I have since missed a couple of doses and the diarrhea returns. So my plan is to not stop.

    It makes me feel wonderful. Thank you so much for Vital Reds!

  • Great product

    Great product. I have bee taking it for one and a half months now, and all my joint pain is gone, I have energy, I exercise more, and I feel very vibrant in general. Before, I could hardly get up in the morning due to the fact that I felt like I did not get enough sleep, and now I sleep and wake feeling very refreshed. I can't believe that this product exists and that it is not addictive, it is, however, a good habit to form since the product is actually helpful.

  • Great product

    • New Jersey,
    • Aug 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Great product and very easy to take every morning; just add water and its grape and cherry flavor is better than that glass of orange juice I was taking every morning.

    I feel a whole lot better with more energy. I also lost about seven pounds since I started taking Vital Reds, probably because the Vital Reds have me feeling better with more energy and also because I'm feeling better I'm exercising a couple of days a week.

    I am going to continue to use Vital Reds in the future because I believe it is a great product that has me feeling great.

    Regards.

  • Anticipation for good results

    • San Francisco, CA,
    • Aug 15, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I've been following the instructions for "one a day" glass of Vital Reds for over two months now, thinking that it must be helpful to be adding all those healthy ingredients to my aging body (over 85)! So it tastes just fine but hard to tell (yet) how much it's added to regular daily activities. I'm feeling pretty good so maybe partly due to this regimen? I'm still hopeful, so will finish the last jar but the cost is more than I can feel comfortable with, especially not knowing for sure that it's contributing a lot! I might check out another alternative similar supplement for lower costs. Not sure yet. Thank you.

    Good results.

    My experience has been great. Although I'm allergic to berries and other fussy fruits, I decided to take a chance. I take it with my allergy pill, which helps 90% to subside the side effect.

    I'm a person that for the past nine years been having problems falling asleep and not sleeping more than four hours straight. Since I started to take Vital Reds, I have been able to sleep much better from six to eight hours.

    Also, my niece was having problems with her digestive system, and the medication was not giving her any relief. I gave her a jar of Vital Reds, and after two weeks of taking it, she started to feel better.

    I just placed another order and hope to get the same result. Thanks for believing in your product and for helping people like my niece and I.
