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.

    I now have more energy!

    I just finished my first jar of Vital Reds, and I'm very pleased!

    I have beta thalassemia, a blood condition that causes me to be tired, especially around 4:00 pm. I also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, which wears me down too. To my surprise, I truly have more energy after 4:00 pm and into the evening! I now feel better and have the energy to exercise after work. I'm equally surprised on how well the probiotics have worked for me as I have digestive issues as well.

    For these two aspects alone I'll continue to use Vital Reds indefinitely! Thank you Dr. Gundry for changing my life.

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

  • So far, so good!

    I am nearing the end of my first container of Vital Reds, and I have to say it has been a positive experience so far!

    I feel great knowing that I am doing something positive for my circulation on a daily basis, and wish I had started sooner. I have already ordered my second three container shipment because I know that I am in this for the long term. Everything about Gundry MD is proving to be a positive as well, with the product itself, to the fast shipping, to the great informative emails.

    I look forward to improving my overall health and a long relationship with Gundry MD and Vital Reds!

  • Awesome!

    I have been on medication for my stomach for five years. Once I started drinking Vital Reds, my stomach problems have resolved, and I no longer take medication. My bloating is gone, and my digestive system has changed 100% from what it was.

    I was skeptical at first, but am so glad I ordered this. What a difference this has made in my life. Thank you so much Dr. Gundry.

  • Great flavor

    I enjoy the flavor and nutritional aspect of this drink. I get my morning vitamin and energy shot quickly when I am rushed in the morning. I know I will even have more energy once I follow the doctor's nutritional protocol. Thank you for keeping this affordable.

    More energy, reduced appetite!

    • California,
    • Jan 22, 2017

    My husband and I have been using Vital Reds for about a month now. My husband says that he has noticed a decided increase in his energy levels, and he rarely takes a nap since using Vital Reds (naps were a daily occurrence previously).

    As a life-long dieter, I have noticed that I have less appetite, and it is easier to stop eating since using Vital Reds. This is VERY unusual for me.

    We are in our mid-60s and intend to use Vital Reds for life! Thank you.

    Age buster

    I started taking this product 2 and a half weeks ago. I live in a large senior complex (269 Apts) here in Tacoma. The rent is great, and I have a million dollar view of downtown, Port of Tacoma, Commencement Bay, and best of all Mt. Rainier.

    I'm 73 years-old and when I moved in with my service dog, Dude, I was depressed and I took 11 different prescriptions and shuffled around. When I walked my dog, I had a difficult time cleaning up after him. It was hard to walk much more than a block without my body hurting really bad. I had to take pain meds before going out.

    Now, I feel so much better, it's like being re-born. My body still hurts as it got used really hard while serving my country, but my movement is so much better. This is the first product I've taken which really works. Believe me, have tried so many supposed "cures" which came with a lot of hype but didn't work. I recently have become acquainted with a younger woman and have ED, which my doctors tell me is both because of my age and the meds I'm taking. We're going to Ireland in mid-May, and the last thing I want is to disappoint her. This is a great fear of mine, and it would basically kill me to disappoint her.

    I recently received pills which are supposed to cure my ED. I will know in a month if my plumbing will still work. If not, I hope Dr. Gundy has something for me or if taking Vital Reds and Prebiothrive will help with this condition. Both my body and mind feel so much better. People keep telling me I look to be in my 50's. I can't imagine how I'll look after three months.

    As a professional salesman most of my adult life, these are products I would love to market here for them. I plan on moving to San Jose late this summer, and if all goes well with my lady (who is less than 40 years old) on our trip to Ireland. While I'm still here, it might be a great testing and practice area. Where do I sign up?

    Four weeks usage and continuing

    I have now been taking the Vital Reds for four weeks, and the following is the best summary I can think of to express my satisfaction.

    I am an 80-year-old male in relatively good health, if you don't count high blood pressure, overweight, aorta valve replaced ten years ago (along with one by-pass), migraine headaches, tinnitus, moderate rheumatoid arthritis, on medication for seizures and poor eyesight.

    I play golf three to four times per week and hold a 13 handicap, and I have found out that if I drink the Vital Reds with about 12 ounces of water, I have remarkable stamina throughout the 18 hold round. A have gained a high respect for the supplement (Vital Reds) and plan to continue the process. Thanks Dr. Gundry.

    I would certainly order more.

    • Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada,
    • Jan 22, 2017

    It's easy to mix, pleasing to taste and a great way to get all the necessary fruits. Another bonus, it also contains probiotics.

    I would certainly order more of this product.

    Feeling better and with energy

    I'm a breast cancer survivor and also have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Needless to say, I have much muscular pain. I have been taking the Vital Reds for over a month now, and I can say that my pain is very minimal now. I was telling my husband that it's strange to wake up or go about the day without feeling sorry for myself because of the pain that I suffer.

    I believe the Vital Reds are helping and will stay with them as long as I can afford them. I also have my husband taking them now.

    Thank you for your research and love for the human race. God blessed you with the desire to help your fellow men and gave you the knowledge and talents to research and find a good source in nature to create this product. I know God has given us all that we need to cure our bodies without chemicals, but there are some things that need the expertise and knowledge of those as yourself, to find them and put them together. Please continue with your research to find products made with natural, God-given resources for the betterment of the human race.

    Thank you.
