About Energy Renew by Gundry MD

By HighYa Staff
Published on: Sep 17, 2018

Energy Renew by Gundry MD uses a blend of powerful nutrients the company advertises will increase your cells' natural ability to create their own energy, while also providing protection and helping them burn fat.

Together, the website indicates you could experience “supercharged” all-day energy in your life, along with additional potential benefits like a slimmed figure, better-looking skin, boosted mental energy and focus, and a more youthful-feeling body.

You’ll simply mix one scoop of the passionfruit-flavored powder with 8 fl. oz. of water and enjoy. We’re told it contains only 100% natural and safe ingredients, is tested for quality and purity at an independent, third-party facility, and can be taken by “anyone who wants to feel more energetic in their day-to-day life.”

Based on the specific ingredients in Energy Renew's formulation, can you expect to experience all of the benefits advertised by Gundry MD? Before helping you answer this critical question (and many more), let's quickly cover some basics.

What Causes Decreased Energy (aka Fatigue)?

The definition of fatigue is “extreme tiredness, typically resulting from mental or physical exertion or illness.” In other words, fatigue isn’t a condition itself; it’s a side effect of other conditions.

For example, Healthline tells us that low energy in men can be caused by low testosterone, hypothyroidism (often the result of an autoimmune disease), depression, iron-deficiency anemia, insufficient exercise, a less-than-stellar diet, as well as deeper concerns like cancer or diabetes.

WebMD indicates that many of these same conditions can cause women to experience chronic fatigue, in addition to vitamin D deficiency and sleep apnea.

Considering the potential health concerns associated with chronic fatigue, you should start moving toward a solution by meeting with your doctor.

In the meantime, let’s take an in-depth look at Energy Renew’s ingredients so you can further discuss them during your appointment.

Which Ingredients Does Energy Renew Contain?

According to the supplement facts label listed on the Gundry MD website, Energy Renew contains the following:

  • Vitamin C 5 mg
  • D-Ribose 5,000 mg
  • N-Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg
  • Polyphenol Blend 300 mg – Beet Root Extract, Hibiscus Flower Extract, Betta Berries (Acai, Acerola, Amla, Jabuticaba, Cranberry, Goji, Mangosteen, Maqui Berry, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Schisandra Berry)

Based on what’s cumulatively reported between sites like WebMD, the Natural Medicines Database, and Examine.com, vitamin C might help increase iron absorption, when taken in 200 mg doses per 30 mg of iron.

They report it's also possibly useful for improving physical performance and muscle strength in older people (although not necessarily for older men as part of a strength training program), as well as for improving oxygen intake during exercise in teenage boys. No dosages were listed.

Finally, they indicate vitamin C (again, no concentration listed) could potentially improve the appearance of wrinkled skin when applied topically using cream.

Betta Blend is a trademarked formulation owned by NP Nutra, which contains a total of 11 of the company’s proprietary ingredients. These include AcaiVida (Açai juice powder from the Açai fruit tree), JabuVital (juice powder from the fruit growing on the trunk of the Jabuticaba tree), and XandraPure (a 5:1 extract derived from certified organic Schisandra berries), to name just a few.

WebMD and the Natural Medicines Database report these ingredients are typically high in antioxidants, which are chemicals that can potentially help offset the cellular damage caused by free radicals.

However, they don’t indicate sufficient clinical evidence to support Gundry MD’s energy-boosting (or other) claims for the Energy Renew dietary supplement.

Are There Potential Side Effects Related to Energy Renew’s Ingredients?

Again referencing the cumulative clinical evidence reported by Examine.com, the Natural Medicines Database, and WebMD, we’re told the most common side effects associated with many of Energy Renew’s ingredients (vitamin C, ribose, and l-carnitine) are nausea, upset stomach, and vomiting.

In some instances (no dosages or additional specifics provided), taking vitamin C can also lead to heartburn, stomach cramping, and headache, while ribose might cause diarrhea and low blood sugar. L-carnitine may lead to seizures in some patients (again, no specifics provided) and can “cause the urine, breath, and sweat to have a "fishy" odor.”

Finally, they report hibiscus is ‘possibly safe’ when taken by mouth as a supplement, although the possible side effects are unknown.

The Gundry MD website emphasizes consulting with your own healthcare provider before you start taking any new dietary supplement, which is something we can certainly get behind. Not only could this help you avoid side effects based on your diagnosis, but it could also help ensure you're getting the most value for the money.

How Much Does Energy Renew Cost?

If purchased from EnergyOver40.com, Energy Renew is available in the following quantities:

  • 1 Jar: $49.95
  • 3 Jars: $134.85 ($44.95 per jar)
  • 6 Jars: $254.70 ($42.45 per jar)

The single-jar option comes with an additional $4.95 S&H fee, while the three and six-jar options include free shipping.

Regardless of quantity, all Energy Renew orders come from Gundry MD with a 90-day money back guarantee, less S&H, which you can request by calling (800) 852-0477.

Are There Other Powdered Antioxidant Supplements Like Energy Renew?

There are hundreds of different powdered antioxidant supplements competing directly with Energy Renew, most of which share more in common than they do differences. These include extensive fruit and vegetable blends (often referred to as ‘superfoods’), along with essential vitamins and minerals that promise to promote improved energy and boosted overall health.

Here were some of the top results on sites like Google Shopping and Amazon.com at the time of our research, several of which the HighYa team has written about in the past:

Dietary Supplement Price / Net Weight Formulation
Energy Renew $42.45+ / 7.36 oz. Vitamin C 5 mg, D-Ribose 5,000 mg, N-Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg, Polyphenol Blend 300 mg – Beet Root Extract, Hibiscus Flower Extract, Betta Berries (Acai, Acerola, Amla, Jabuticaba, Cranberry, Goji, Mangosteen, Maqui Berry, Pomegranate, Strawberry, Schisandra Berry)
Vital Reds $70 / 4 oz. 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, flax seed, apple peel, mulberry, black currant, apple, cranberry …, 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
Aloha Green Juice $35 / 9.5 oz. Sodium 50mg, Potassium 200mg, Spirulina 550mg, Spinach 800mg, Moringa 600mg, Green Pea 1,400mg, Wheatgrass Juice 900mg, Wild Blueberries 550mg, Raspberries 300mg, Coconut Water 2,465mg, King Trumpet Mushrooms 400mg, Enoki Mushrooms 300mg, Oyster Mushrooms 475mg, Yellow Hawaiian Ginger 20mg, Hawaiian Red Alaea Salt 60mg
Athletic Greens $77+ / 12.69 oz. 75 total ingredients, including probiotics (Bifidobacterium bifidum, Lactobacillus acidophilus), fatty acids (alpha lipoic acid), vitamins and minerals, adaptogens (Rhodiola Rosea, Withania somnifera, etc.)
Feel Great 365 Superfood Vital Reds w/Greens $40+ / 10.58 oz. Vitamin C 122 g, Calcium 19 mg, Iron 0,5 mg, Super A Antioxidant Blend – Carrot root, beetroot, plum fruit, papaya fruit …, Mighty B Antioxidant Blend – Radish root, green tea leaf extract, quercetin …, Detox w/Plant Enzymes – Whole Oat Bran, Apple Pectin, Aloe Vera Leaf Powder, …, Red & Green Antioxidant Blend – Green tea leaf, blueberry fruit, collards powder …, Berry Antioxidant Blend – Cranberry, strawberry, raspberry, …

How to decide which of these is best for you? As we frequently discuss when it comes to dietary supplements, the best choice will often depend on which factors you emphasize most.

For example, from a cost perspective, among these popular competitors, Aloha Green Juice comes in lowest, with a price of about $1.16 per serving, which also includes 2,500 mg of coconut water for potentially boosted hydration. At the other end of the spectrum, Athletic Greens will cost customers about $2.56 per serving, or more than double the cost.

However, Athletic Greens also contains probiotics, which might help improve digestion and boost immune function and provide more bang-for-your-buck, if this is one of your primary goals after discussing with a healthcare professional. It also contains adaptogens, which are plant-based substances the manufacturer claims can ‘adapt’ to your mood and changing bodily conditions.

Even Gundry MD’s other plant-based antioxidant supplement Vital Reds costs meaningfully more than Energy Renew, but it also contains a much more extensive ingredients list—including many more antioxidant sources.

Like Athletic Greens, Vital Reds also includes potentially beneficial probiotic bacteria for digestion issues, as well as vitamins and minerals like B6, B12, niacin, selenium, and chromium.

Along these same lines, Feel Great 365 contains meaningfully more vitamin C than Energy Renew, and also comes in at a lower price point.

With these details in mind, how can you decide which of these areas you should focus on? Let’s carry this question over to the final section as we wrap things up.

Do You Need to Take a Dietary Supplement Like Energy Renew by Gundry MD?

As a company, Gundry MD has only been in business since 2014, although they’ve released many popular supplements in that time, including Primal Plants, Prebiothrive, and Total Restore. Here on HighYa and elsewhere online, these products came with almost wholly positive customer reputations, and the company held an A+ Better Business Bureau rating, as of 9/4/18.

They also stand behind their products with a 90-day satisfaction guarantee, with no restocking fees or other penalty charges, if they don’t live up to your expectations.

Just make sure that you maintain realistic expectations, though, as we learned from sites like Examine.com and WebMD earlier that outside of vitamin C, there’s little clinical evidence supporting the manufacturer’s advertising claims.

As emphasized on the Gundry MD website, you’ll definitely want to have an in-depth conversation with your doctor prior to placing your order, which can help minimize potential side effects, while also maximizing the health benefits you might experience.

    Energy Renew

    I am on my 4th week of Energy Renew. It has given me some energy but I still get that mid-afternoon slump. Sometimes after I drink it, I feel a bit nauseous for a few seconds.

    Not sure I would recommend yet.

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

    I was feeling kinda of sluggish and low on energy. A friend recommended that I try Vital Reds, so I looked it up, liked what was in it and ordered. Then I saw Energy Renew, so I ordered that as well. I combined the two in the mornings. I feel better throughout the day and don't seem to get that 2:00 pm low. I also read your book Plant Paradox and have incorporated some of the do's and don't into my daily vegetarian diet.

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

    My wife and I took our first delivery of Energy Renew and we both found our energy levels definitely increased and really noticeably on hikes in the local hills. We then had trouble trying to order more as it wasn’t available and only in the last six weeks we were able to get some more and have now been taking it again. I take it with a glass of water mixed with Vital Reds and Primal Plants every morning. I find now that I have more energy and stamina than I’ve had for years and in the process dropped 7 kilos.

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

  • Great drink

    • Madison, WI,

    I was skeptical if it would actually provide more energy and I believe it does. I drink it in the morning before my coffee. Yes, one morning I didn't drink my coffee until 11! The fact that the powder dissolves easily and taste great with no aftertaste is a bonus. I am very sensitive to after tastes of even natural sweeteners. This has none!

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

    My opinion

    • Auckland, New Zealand,
    • Mar 1, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I am a very active 71-year-old, who still works building Hot Rods for clients six days a week. I have been a Noni juice taker for over 20 years, and generally, have a ton of energy. However since Christmas, I felt a reduction in my energy level, so after some research decided to try the Energy Renew from Gundry MD.

    The results have been slow coming, as with most natural products, but recently I feel I am back to my normal energy levels. I will do continue for the next two months and then re-evaluate. I am expecting a good outcome.

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

    I know I'm supposed to tell you how great I feel after drinking it...but the truth is, the benefits start way before that. It smells so good just opening the jar! It makes me feel like I'm at the fair and when I sip it, it tastes just like cotton candy. I definitely have more energy, but honestly, I'd love it for the taste alone!

    Lowers my cholesterol

    • Perth, Western Australia,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been using Energy Renew along with other life-enhancing products for several months. It is easy to take in my smoothie. My doctor was very pleased with the results of a recent blood test, so I must be doing something right! At almost 82, I can still enjoy an active lifestyle of folk-dancing, Zumba, and water aerobics, despite osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and a recent hip replacement. I have more energy than many people in my age group, and I think that this supplement helps to enhance it.
