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?

  • 1 Jar: $49.95
  • 3 Jars: $134.85

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.

  • Vita Reds

    • Utah,
    • Dec 2, 2016

    I would wake up so tired I had to talk myself into getting out of bed in the mornings. I would eat whatever just to try and get myself going. I was on the Internet and ran across Vital Reds and watched the video with Dr. Gundry and decided to purchase since there was a money back guarantee. When the product arrived I decided to try it right away. I mixed with water and took my first dose. The taste is good. I went to bed around 9 pm. I woke at 3 am. I thought I have got to go back to sleep. I was completely rested. I have been on the product for 36 days and I feel so good. I have not even used the word "tired" since I started Vital Reds. Every morning I look forward to taking Vital Reds and I feel great. I have recommended the product to family. I believe in it. Thanks, Dr. Gundry.

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

    Love this product.

    • Newark, OH,
    • Dec 1, 2016

    Never miss a dose of this product. I have felt amazing. Energy, stamina, mental focus. I usually take two doses a day. Hope I can continue to afford this type of a dosage. My sweet cravings are basically non existent now. Cannot say enough good things about it.

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

    MY DOCTOR & I ARE ASTONISHED

    About 45 days ago I received blood test results that revealed that my cholesterol was 278. I am a 37-year-old man who has gained a considerable amount of weight in the last three years as a result of taking an antidepressant that is known to cause weight gain. In this time, my level of energy and motivation have severely suffered.

    After reading this blood test result to me, my doctor informed me that I needed to make immediate drastic changes in my lifestyle and diet or I would have to be placed on cholesterol medication for the rest of my life. I began doing research online and found this amazing product. Being a police officer, I am skeptical about nearly everything but based on what I read and the hundreds of positive reviews, I decided to give Vital Reds a try.

    5 days ago the results of a second blood test were read to me and my cholesterol DROPPED 90 POINTS IN 40 DAYS. What everyone needs to know about this dramatic improvement is that I DID NOT EXERCISE ANY MORE THAN I WAS and I made no severe diet changes other than drinking more water and avoiding fried and salty foods. This means that Vital Reds is totally responsible for the fact that I now have a "normal" cholesterol level.

    My doctor literally said, "How the hell did you do that?"

    Needless to say, I explained all I knew about Vital Reds to him and I've been raving about it to everyone I know. This is a breakthrough miracle supplement.

    I also should mentions that overall I feel WAY BETTER. I feel less groggy in the morning, I have a more positive outlook every day and my energy levels are right where they used to be and I couldn't be more pleased and astonished with these results. Oh, and this stuff even tastes great with water or in my vanilla protein shake.

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

    Good product.

    • Spring, TX,
    • Nov 30, 2016

    I'm now on my second canister of Vital Reds and can say that I have noticed that my heart "flutters" have stopped completely. I wasn't sure what to expect from this product but am pleasantly surprised by that. I guess I was hoping for some weight loss and super energy which hasn't happened yet, unfortunately. One small drawback is that it is a little pricey. It is still cheaper than a bunch of hospital bills if it really does what it says. I most likely will be ordering again.

    Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

    Vital Reds has delivered everything I was promised it would. I'm not as tired on a "cellular level" like I used to feel and I'm sleeping much better.

    I don't experience knee and hip joint pain as I once did and my other body functions are more regular and normal.

    Vital Reds is an acquired taste and I like it better every day. I would definitely recommend it and have already.

    So far so good!

    Been taking Vital Reds for over 2 weeks now and I'm noticing everything that you claim they are and do. Feeling more energy, getting better sleep, my regularity has improved drastically and even others are openly saying "you look great!"

    It seems to work pretty good.

    I have found the product to be pretty much what you said it should do for me, in that it has boosted my energy and helped me feel fuller which helped me lose 7 lbs in the first month.

    Working.

    • Monterey, CA,
    • Nov 30, 2016

    I've been taking Vital Reds for a little over a month and it's working. I used to need a nap most days, but now the opposite seems to be true. I've only needed two naps since beginning with the product. So clearly, my energy has increased. Also, it's a smooth energy, unlike caffeine. So far, so good.

    Vital Reds

    • Jurupa Valley, CA,
    • Nov 29, 2016

    While I don't notice instant energy, I do notice that I feel better in the mornings. I find it easier to wake up and get started. The taste is fine so long as I add about 4 ounces of juice with 4 ounces of water. I find that I'm hungry more often, which is not a good thing for me since I work 10hr days and sit most of the day. I can't afford to purchase an additional appetite suppressant making my monthly bill for vitamins and appetite suppressant $75. But otherwise, the product delivers energy.

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