Gundry MD Primal Plants Review

4.52/5 (23 votes)

You know how when everything is flowing smoothly you feel like you can take over the world? And, we’re not just talking about a good hair day or a successful project at work. When your body works in optimal parameters, life just feels good. Smooth digestion and a healthy metabolism play a key role here.

Although most people don’t pay too much attention to it, the digestive system can ensure that your body performs its essential functions that allow you to carry out your day-to-day life. And, your metabolism helps convert nutrients into energy that can be used for cellular processes.

A balanced diet and regular exercising can help maintain a healthy digestive system. But, as we grow old, our bodies need help to preserve its regular processes. With digestive disorders becoming a growing burden for most people, it’s clear that we need a little help to support our bodily functions.

One supplement that promises to enhance your digestion and boost your metabolism is Gundry MD Primal Plants. Does it work? Can this be the solution to your slow metabolism and digestive problems or it’s all just marketing? We’ll help you find the answer to all these questions and more.

About Primal Plants

Primal Plants is an apple flavored dietary supplement created by Gundry MD. It’s presented as an “essential superfood blend” that combines various polyphenol-rich ingredients in a potent formula.

By using only 100% natural ingredients, Gundry MD developed a formula that can help you feel better from the inside out. Primal Plants claims to help your digestive system, boost your energy levels, support your heart’s health, and give you a youthful and radiant skin.

All you have to do is mix one scoop of Primal Plants into water, green tea or a beverage of your choice and drink one glass per day on a regular basis.

The supplement is available in just one flavor: green apple. Unlike many other green products, Primal Plants doesn’t have a “grassy flavor.” Instead, the flavor is fresh and quite delicious and can enhance the taste of your beverage, be it a juice, protein shake or tea.

Another great thing about Primal Plants is that the product doesn’t contain sugar, soy or artificial sweeteners. That way you can ensure that every scoop of Primal Plants does, in fact, contain only 100% natural ingredients.

How Does Primal Plants Work?

Primal Plants combines ingredients like kale, broccoli, cinnamon bark, fennel seeds, green tea leaf extract, and many others into a super-formula. Once these ingredients, which are rich in polyphenols, reach the digestive system and from there enter the bloodstream, they can help detoxify your body and support a healthy metabolism.

In addition to polyphenols, Gundry MD Primal Plants uses five unique formulas that can deliver a variety of benefits to your body:

  • Superfood Greens Blend: Gundry MD blended 11 powerful polyphenols that are believed to boost your energy and make your skin look more youthful and radiant.
  • Heart Health Mix: It contains a tannin-rich blend mixed with polyphenols from the Capros amla fruit, which can promote the health of the cardiovascular system.
  • Metabolic Enhancing Blend: According to Gundry MD, Primal Plants supplements contain a blend of six unique ingredients that can boost your metabolism and energy levels.
  • Digestive Support Mix: This formula contains two potent digestive enzymes that can promote healthy digestion.
  • Probiotic Blend: Since probiotics play such a crucial role in people’s health, Gundry MD included four of the most effective ones into this Primal Plants formula.

Other ingredients contained by Primal Plants include niacin, vitamin B12, biotin, selenium, chromium, thiamin, and vitamin B6.

Are the Ingredients Clinically Proven?

Most of the ingredients have been proven to have a positive effect on people’s health. Studies have shown that thiamin can help correct metabolic disorders while niacin and selenium may play a role in reducing the cholesterol level.

Probiotics have been proven to help reduce bloating and even boost the immune system. Green tea is a bit conflicting. While some studies claim that the antioxidants in green tea can help ward off cancer among other things, one research found that giving antioxidants to people in trial groups showed increased rates of mortality. The trial groups, however, were rather small and the patients were suffering from chronic diseases, so this finding should be taken with a grain of salt.

Are Polyphenols That Good for You?

Polyphenols, a type of antioxidants found in plants, play a major role in maintaining our bodies healthy and at optimal performance. A growing body of evidence talks about the benefits of these micronutrients and the impact they can have on our health. It’s believed that polyphenols can help fight cancer, reduce the buildup of fat in the blood vessels, and reduce inflammation.

A new study found that polyphenols can also break down into molecules that help the microorganisms found in your digestive system. As a result, these compounds can support your gut health and enhance your digestion to keep your body runing smoothly.

“Can’t I just eat fruits and vegetables to get these micronutrients in my body?” you might ask yourself.

While increasing your consumption of fruits and vegetables can boost your daily intake of polyphenols, Primal Plants can ensure you get the right dosage your body needs. Not to mention that most people have a hectic schedule and often opt for processed, unhealthy foods to alleviate their hunger pangs. A supplement like Primal Plants can help them maintain their body’s processes in a healthy way.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Since Primal Plants is made from 100% natural products, it shouldn’t cause any concerning side effects. Probiotics can temporarily cause bloating and gassiness, but if your use the product on a regular basis, the discomfort should disappear after a few days.

Just to be on the safe side, check the ingredients to make sure you are not allergic to any of them. Or, better yet, consult with your physician before taking Primal Plants.

How Much Does Primal Plants Cost?

One jar of Primal Plants costs $99.99, and it will last you for 30 days.

Final Word

Before developing his line of supplements, Dr. Steven Gundry worked for over three decades as a medical researcher and heart surgeon. He has extensive knowledge in the medical field and has used his experience to create formulas that are scientifically proven to help people improve their lives.

Judging by the number of studies that point out to the effectiveness of polyphenols and the positive feelings consumers have about this product, it seems that Primal Plants delivers on its promises.

Although it’s more expensive than other similar products on the market, the health benefits of the ingredients used are worth the extra bucks.

I just want to say a year ago, Dr wanted to put me on Cholesterol meds, it was getting high, I was tired all the time, no energy, on Blood pressure pills and only about 30 lb overweight. I talked her out of it. 6 mo ago, she said I HAD to go on Cholesterol meds, was calling in the prescription. They forgot, BUT >>> I started Primal Plants 6 mo ago. I just had my physical and my Cholesterol is Normal, i’m backing off the blood pressure pills, I have energy (its hard to even take a nap anymore, i’m not tired) and my weight is slowly falling. I’m down 10 lbs, but my belly is all but gone, hips are smaller, fitting into my size 10 already. This stuff is amazing.

I mix 2 scoops in a 16 oz water bottle/ cold and drink 1/2 every morning. I shake it 20x — no grittiness, tastes just like they said it would, Apple. No aftertaste. LOVE this stuff and hope they never take it off the market. The health benefits are amazing, I’ve always been low on B vitamins. In fact, I was anemic growing up, started giving blood a while ago, and 4 mo back, couldn’t give, but ever since, its not a problem… 🙂 I haven’t changed anything in my lifestyle … it just works !!!

I was able to tell a difference in my energy after the first several days and it is great! Not overly energetic but it gives me the energy I need, and didn’t have before, to do everything I need to do without having to stop to rest. I will drink a glass of this every morning without doubt. Thanks for making this great supplement!

I just bought a 3 month supply of Primal Plants. Before I received my order I was hounded with advertisements for Primal Plants on facebook, and my emails, not to mention EVERYTIME I GET ON THE INTERNET. I will never buy another product from you. My privacy means more to me than your products. Your products either sell themselves or they don’t. I had planned to look at more of your products if Primal Plants worked for me. I’ve been into supplements for 4 years and some work for me and some don’t. In 2004 I fired my Doctor’s for malpractice. I wrote down side effects of my medications told my Doctor I was having them and he wrote me 5 more prescriptions. I have been without a Doctor ever since. I want to be in charge of my own health and not dictated to. So please stop the hassle for I will not look at your products ever again if you don’t.

In the promotion video it says that all of the ingredients are high quality and pure, “rigorous standards” etc. And it says that it does not contain Dairy. But on the label is has a whole list of “other ingredients;” Things that I try to avoid because they are additives that can harm, like “Natural Flavors, citric acid, guar gum” and more… It even says “contains milk.” This seems deceitful. Is there another, cleaner, version of this product that I can take?

Not GMO free? Very sad!

July 1, 2017 12:07 PM

I love the vital reds I can drink daily with just water and it is not bad, and have notably more energy- great product I will not venture from again- This product does not taste like green apple- it is horrible- still trying it with different beverages so far I have wasted way more than digested. I’m sure it will have great benefits if I could choke it down. Any suggestions on mixing?

Hey, Dannah just got mine this morning. Couldn’t wait to try it. Had some fresh orange juice and mixed it with 8oz to a glass. it tasted great.

These are not the same ingredients and have to different purposes for the body. Please go to his website listed below. I use both. I am Bi-Polar, ADHD and on Meds. It does wonders for me. My 15yr old son has really bad Eczema; especially in his scalp, moderate Acne, plus digestive issues. Primal plants, while it has not cured him, definitely has improved his symptoms.

I too had difficulty with the taste in plain water. It helps so much to mix it with juice. I alternate between cranberry cherry and cranberry grape. Delicious. You can also eat applesauce along with it but I found the juices were much better.

Try it in a berry smoothie with half a banana…the banana seems to kill that horrible taste.

Reply to  Dannah

Mix the two of them together. You can’t taste the primal flavor. It is like drink a mix berry drink. I use one scoop of each in a glass of water. I normally use a little hot water to dissolve them completely then add ice and water, stir and drink. I too didn’t like them separated but together they actually taste very good. I have been using them since Feb. When I went to get a facial, the lady I see normally, said my facial skin looked amazing and she doesn’t give complements out hardly.

Dannah, I used vital Reds for 2 solid months and noticed improvement. Changed to Fruits and Veggies (Balance of Nature) for the last two months and I have to tell you there is a real difference. As a 68 year old guy, (don’t take this wrong) I found it difficult getting or wanting to have an erection. Hear me out. I noticed the VR’s were allowing me we wake up during the night with an erection several times. I thought, wow, that’s great! Switched to BofN and that nightly wake up is now gone. I went on vacation for 2.5 weeks and forgot to take either supplement. Right into the 3rd week, I got a chest cold (not a bad one), nonetheless, I got sick. Haven’t been sick in 3 years. So, now that I have been on VR’s again for the last 8 days, I can tell I’m getting “the feeling” again. Bottom line. BofN is capsules. You must take 3 of fruits and 3 of veggies. I don’t know about you, but 6 capsules is hard to swallow in the morning. For me, I keep bottles of water in the refrig. I drink a couple oz’s and place a scoop of VR and a scoop of Primal Plants in the bottle and shake it up for 20 30 seconds and place it back in the frig until morning. I still have to take a BP pill so I start to drink it with the pill. I usually drink it with my breakfast and if I forgot, I take it with me in the car as I’m driving to work. Taste is not bad when cold. Try it.

I broke out in a rash on my arms, legs, neck and chest almost immediately after taking my first dose. Has anyone else had this reaction? I plan to try 1/2 scoop tomorrow, and work back up to one scoop.

No didn’t have no reactions yet tasted like fibers not so much like green apple

Reply to  regina

I had that reaction the first time I combined the Vital Reds with the Primal Plants. It comes from getting so much B vitamins all at once and it is totally harmless, just a little uncomfortable. You can also try adding the mix to more water and drinking it slowly. Don’t gulp it down all at once.

Yes I had that reaction too. I called my doctor and learned that it is a “niacin flush” which is a reaction to too much niacin.

August 4, 2017 12:27 PM
Reply to  regina

Yes, I had this reaction as well, but not my husband. So I tried 1/2 scoop & eliminated my extra B-Complex (33 mg B3) until later in the day. I still had 10 mg B3 in my multi for a total of 20 mg B3 at a time & NO flush. A few days later I tried 1 full scoop for a total of 30 mg & got the flush. I will stick with 1/2 scoop for awhile & hope to still get enough benefits.

Hi there Regina, Aria from Gundry MD here. Before starting any new product, we always suggest that you consult your primary physician prior to starting it, just to ensure that you do not experience any interactions. If you are not satisfied with your experience, I would be more than happy to offer you a full refund. You can send me an e-mail directly at [email protected] if you ever have any questions or concerns. Thank you!

Regina, that is exactly what I am afraid of. I recently had an allergic reaction to something. Likely a liquid health product that I ordered, that made my mouth become swollen, and broke me out in hives. I would like to hear from Aria if there is something in this product that would cause a reaction. My order came today, and I took less than half of the powder mixed in a glass of water to start because I was so concerned about the ingredients. Have there been reports that the Primal Plants causes reactions in some people? I very much want the Primal Plants to enhance my health, but I don’t want to risk danger, either. We all want a product that has no risky ingredients, but it is so hard to find something we can trust! I hope this is going to be trustworthy and healthy!

How much sugar per serving is in the Primal Plants supplement?

August 11, 2017 4:31 PM

I have had good results with Vital Reds. My whole life, even though I exercised regularly and often, felt I ate right, and slept well, I was always, always irregular. Vital Reds has provided remarkably good success in providing me with regular, normal bowel movements, every day since I started taking it more than six months ago. I am now a VIP customer and want to incorporate Primal Plants next. It is expensive though, I am hoping for a good deal.

July 20, 2017 11:36 AM

Because, when you read the labels of both the Primal Plants and the Vital Reds, you find almost identical levels of polyphenols, and the other good things, I alternate the Primal Plants and Vital Reds, taking one on one day, and then the other product the next day. I am still getting great antioxident, polyphenol and phytonutrients daily and bringing the investment to a more manageable level. I like the taste of both products, but it took a little while to adjust to the tastes to be able to say that.

I would also like to know the answer to this question. We have to be careful of our greens intake.
