First, I am not a paid reviewer, nor have been asked to submit a positive review. This is an authentic review. I purchased this product last year as a means to supplement my sluggish metabolism. I also struggle with weight issues, and prior to reading The Plant Paradox, I was unsuccessful with dieting. I found this particular product (as well as Gundry's PrebioThrive) did make a noticeable difference in my energy levels and did result in a 30lb weight loss.
What I like most about this is the taste, and the fact that I can mix it in both hot and cold drinks. I mix it with water during the summer, and hot tea when I feel cold. I have also replaced one cup of hot coffee in the am with one hot tea plus Vital Reds. Vital Reds mixes better than nearly all previous supplements I have tried, and that matters to me. It is sold by weight, NOT volume, so it does at first appear that you are only getting 1/2 a jar. I simply order in multiples and pour one into another (this is something I wish all manufacturers would step up to.) The taste is very good, not so sweet, but certainly not chalky. I will continue to use this. I do think they could work on the cost. Similar supplements can be substantially less, but I find this does work better, so I will pay it until a better product comes along.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
