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.

    Not gluten free

    Shame on me for purchasing this product when it did not say it was gluten free.

    I was excited to try something that made so many marvelous claims. I did not take it every day for the first three months. In fact, by the time I got my second shipment, I still had two jars unopened. When I got my second shipment, though, I committed to taking it every day. As soon as I had taken it for four days, I was having digestive problems and a persistent rash on my face and lip.

    I called to make sure it was gluten free and was told it was not. I was told that someone would call me the next day to begin processing my refund. I did receive an email canceling my reoccurring order, but I did not receive a call. I sent two emails asking how to return the five unopened containers and still received no return message.

    At this point, I tell myself (buyer beware) I should have known better. If it is too good to be believed, don't believe it!

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

    No identifiable benefit

    I used Dr. Grundy's Vital Reds powdered drink for 30 days and found no benefit at all. The powder added to water seems no more than a fruit drink that is very expensive ($49.95 per jar). I returned the unused jars and the empty used jar and was refunded. The refund took about six weeks, but I was refunded without any hassle.

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

    Don't skip a day

    I took the Vital Reds for three days and while I thought I felt more energy, I blew off taking it for two days. And wow, what a difference in mood, energy and appetite level (carb craving). I have not missed a day since. It is wonderful for energy, and we will see what other effects may surface.

    I also noted that my gums do not appear as inflamed, but I will see what the dentist and periodontist have to contribute. Thanks so much.

    Amazing; I am paying for something and saying thanks.

    Ketones and fat burning

    • New York,
    • Feb 16, 2017

    I have been taking Vital Reds for two weeks now and am very pleased with this product. When testing my Ketone level with Ketone strips after taking Vital Reds, I noticed that it puts me into fat burning mode.

    I just started up my training regiment and have dropped a little bit over 11 pounds in two weeks and Vital Reds has been a great supplement to add to my daily routine.

    Learning something new makes me smile

    At the age of 63, I never stop learning about new and wonderful things.

    Most people who know me would say I am a health nut, and they are right, but as I got older I felt pain in my joints, and it was hard for me to walk without feeling pain in every step. So when I found the Gundry MD video, I watch as he explained on the foods we eat, or rather the foods we don't eat. I learned the difference between grain-fed beef and grass-fed beef, something I never knew about, and omega 6 and 3.

    So I took a look at what he offered with Vital Reds and what it could do, and I ordered my first three. They had fast service, for I received it on Saturday, and that night I tried it, and on Sunday morning I got up and had very little pain in my joints. On Monday morning I have no pain in moving around.

    I believe that what we put in is what we get out, and I'm very glad to know that someone out there is taking the time in helping people live better by making available something as good as Vital Reds, and that makes me smile.

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

    I received none of the claimed benefits

    I purchased six jars of Vital Reds and took it daily as instructed for two months. None of the benefits claimed in the advertising were experienced.

    I will say that Vital Reds is delicious! Beyond being tasty, the claims of energy, vitality, and alertness are grossly misrepresented, in my experience with Vital Reds.

    After 60 days, I returned the two empty jars and the remaining four unopened jars. My money, less shipping and handling, was promptly returned.

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

    Brand new client

    • Ann Arbor, MI,
    • Feb 15, 2017

    I want to know if Vital Red's contain GMO's? I cannot find anything on the package (maybe I missed it), so that leads me to believe this is a GMO product, which would cause me to not purchase it again. Can anyone answer this for me?

    I am very pleased with the delivery. I ordered on the 9th, and they arrived on the 11th. I was concerned after reading a bad review about this, but my experience with delivery was great!

    Be aware that these come in very small containers, which was a big surprise to me. Each container is 3" by 3". The serving size is very small also, so it should all work out. After watching the video, I expected a much larger container.

    Today is day one. I will let you know how it goes.

    Awesome

    • Sandwich, IL,
    • Feb 14, 2017

    After being on Vital Reds, my husband took his blood tests and got amazing results. His LDL was always high and came back as perfect. His energy is higher, and he works 12-hour days.

    I am also experiencing at least an 80% change in pain from fibromyalgia. I am always in pain, so that in itself is amazing. My next blood test will tell how much it has changed. I love the taste too. I was also experiencing bad bowel issues, and now I go normally.

    I would recommend this product to everyone. We are going on month two. The price is reasonable to me for these very reasons.

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

    Vital Reds

    • Scottsdale, AZ,
    • Feb 13, 2017

    I drink Vital Reds daily, and I love the taste when I make it as a hot drink. I have plenty of energy now, and friends have told me that I look better. I have been working on weight loss and am not seeing a quick response; however, I am more interested in cholesterol and Lp(a) reduction. I will have tests for this in about three weeks, so we shall see.

    I did have a repeat on glucose tests the other day as they have been elevated, and I was surprised to see that they had gone down.

    I have a high calcium cardiac risk score. I won't know if this and my medications have helped on that for at least a year. The plaque build up is something Dr. Guidry claims to help with this product. We shall see. It doesn't hurt. A lot of products make my heart race; this does nothing but make me feel better, so that is good.

    So far, so good.

    Buy it!

    • Missouri,
    • Feb 13, 2017

    It tastes very good. It's something you can drink daily with no hesitation.

    It gives you about a 7-hour energy gain. What I like most is that if I feel like I'm getting sick (flu-ish), or just feel like I'm getting "sick" in general, I take it, and I feel better two hours later. I think it's the probiotics that really helps in that area.

    It is good quality and fresh, and I've been on it for three months.

    I've been taking Vital Reds for only one month now, and my main observation is that my joints aren't stiff and sore anymore. It is not something I was expecting. I also feel more energetic and am sleeping better.
