The older we get, the more our body starts to suffer from the ravages of time. Most of us don’t notice this until we reach about retirement age, but the reality is that this starts much sooner. There is little that can be done about the fact that our blood flow, our heart, our brain, and our skin simply aren’t as efficient as they once were. This is why it is important that you commit to looking after yourself as early as possible, taking nutritional supplements to make sure that your body is properly supported. The problem, however, is that there are thousands of supplements on the market, all claiming to be exactly what you are looking for. With this, making a choice maybe a little overwhelming. A good supplement should contain all the necessary vitamins, natural nitric oxide, and various antioxidants. One example is Vital Reds by Gundry MD. So what are the ins and outs of this particular product?

What Is Vital Reds?

Dr. Steven Gundry MD is a world-famous cardiac surgeon who has also developed Vital Reds. It is marketed as being a fully efficient nutritional supplement, superior to any other on the market today. Gundry MD, the business set up by Dr. Gundry himself, has patented it as being a blend of 100% natural super fruits. It is targeted specifically at people who find their skin doesn’t look healthy, who feel exhausted all the time, and whose energy levels are always low.

They also developed several other health products including PrebioThrive, Lectin Shield, and Total Restore.

Supplement Facts and Ingredients

The Vital Reds website fully lists the different ingredients found in the supplement. It is free of artificial sweeteners, lectin, soy, and sugar. It is a powdered supplement that contains over 50 ingredients in total. The main active ingredient is a blend of polyphenol extracts, while at the same time containing a type of metabolic mixture that includes black pepper fruit, bitter melon fruit extracts, turmeric rhizome extract, white and green tea leaf extracts, ginger root, and cinnamon bark.

Furthermore, Vital Reds contains a digestive support ingredient. This combines L. reuteri, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Bacillus coagulans. Together, these have been demonstrated to provide benefits to the overall digestive system. Additionally, it helps to optimize levels of antioxidants in the body, helping to fight against free radical damage. This also helps the skin to look healthy and glowing.

Who Should Take Vital Reds?

Vital Reds is filled with super fruits, infused with polyphenols, which is a microchemical found in plants. Scientific studies have shown that those who consume high enough quantities of polyphenols have a stronger immune system. They are also more able to halt the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart problems.

Dr. Gundry fully stands behind his product and he has explained that the supplement contains 34 different super fruits rich in polyphenols. According to research, these get to work in lowering platelet aggregation, minimizing the risk of developing cancer, and stabilizing levels of blood glucose. Essentially, they work in synergy with each other to create a cumulative positive effect by increasing blood circulation, which in turn supports the heart and improves metabolism, which then increases the level of energy.

The main ingredients, according to the Gundry MD website, are:

  • 1.5 mg of thiamine

  • 1.7 mg of riboflavin

  • 20 mg of niacin

  • 2 g of vitamin B6

  • 400 mcg of folate

  • 6 mcg of vitamin B12

  • 300 mcg of biotin

  • 10 mcg of pantothenic acid

  • 70 mcg of selenium

  • 200 mcg of chromium

Meanwhile, the 1,540mg polyphenol blend contains:

  • Organic carrot

  • Organic flax seed

  • Organic apple peel

  • Mulberry

  • Blackcurrant

  • Apple

  • Cranberry

  • Papaya

  • Mango

  • Organic red raspberry

  • Acai

  • Organic strawberry

  • Grape skin

  • Organic beet

  • Aronia berry

  • Blueberry

  • Pomegranate

  • Blackberry

  • Acerola extract

  • Apple pectin

  • Grape seed

  • Pineapple

  • Orange

  • Watermelon

  • Grapefruit

  • Plum

  • Pear

  • Lemon

  • Lime

  • Cherry

  • Peach

  • Berberin HCl

The 216 mg metabolic boosting blend contains:

  • Cinnamon

  • Ginger root

  • Green tea

  • White tea

  • Bitter melon

  • Turmeric

  • Black pepper

Finally, the 3 billion CFU digestive support blend contains:

  • Bacillus coagulans

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus

  • Bifidobacterium lactis

  • L. reuteri

Each of these ingredients plays an important role in overall health because they are packed with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Because our food is now so heavily processed and natural produce are contaminated with pesticides, herbicides, and GMO practices, the reality is that it is very difficult to consume all the different vitamins and minerals through diet alone. Furthermore, the supplement contains very strong antioxidants, which have been clinically demonstrated to fight free radical damage. Finally, it is believed that the supplement can help lower levels of bad cholesterol.

Polyphenols are currently a topic of extensive scientific research. A lot still needs to be learned, particularly in terms of whether some polyphenols are better than others. However, it is recommended that people consume foods with a variety of polyphenols so that they can take advantage of all the benefits. Vital Reds provides virtually every type of polyphenol in an easy to consume manner, which is one of the things that people love the most out of it. A recommendation is to consume plenty of healthy fats in your diet, as this ensures polyphenols become more bioavailable.

Some evidence exists to suggest that the ingredients included in the metabolic blend do have a benefit on digestion and metabolism. This means that, so long as people are committed to eating a healthy diet and getting plenty of physical exercise, they should be able to lose weight or to sustain a healthy weight. Unfortunately, taking Vital Reds alone will not magically melt the fat away.

The probiotic blend included in Vital Reds is particularly good. A lot of scientific research exists on the benefits of probiotics. It has been proven to improve the immune response, boost energy, relieve gassiness and bloating, and help to reduce the symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome or IBS.

Prices and What You Get

If you wish to purchase Vital Reds, the best place to do so is through the official Gundry MD website. This also ensures that you have not accidentally purchased a counterfeit product. At the time of this writing, there were three quantities of the product available:

  1. A single jar, which is a 30 day supply, costs $69.95 and comes with free shipping.

  2. Three jars, which is a 90 day supply, costs $199.36 and comes with free shipping. This translates into a saving of $3.50 per unit.

  3. Six jars, which is a 180 day supply, costs $377.73 and comes with free shipping. This translates into a saving of $6.99 per unit.

Gundry MD also offers customers an auto-ship option. This means that you will automatically be billed for and sent a new supply. You can choose to have this done monthly, every three months, or every six months as per your convenience. One complaint that people have had, however, is that they found the request to sign up to the autoship program a little bit pushy, particularly if they only wanted to try the supplement before making up their mind.

Side Effects of Vital Reds

While Vital Reds has received tons of positive reviews from people stating they have experienced fantastic benefits through it, some people have also mentioned side effects. Those most commonly experienced include discomfort, diarrhea, and heart palpitations. However, these side effects have generally been of a temporary nature only.

What I Liked About Vital Reds

  • It comes with a full 90 day money back guarantee, which means you can try it risk free.

  • The product is made by world-renowned Dr. Steve Gundry.

  • The product is 100% natural.

  • The supplement contains lots of healthy ingredients.

  • It has been highly positively reviewed by many people from all over the world.

What I Didn’t Like About Vital Reds

  • Some people have experienced side effects, although they are usually short lived. According to Dr. Gundry himself, this is likely to be because certain bodies react differently to certain products. None of the side effects are dangerous and since a satisfaction guarantee is offered, someone who does not respond well to the supplement can simply return it.

  • It is quite a costly supplement, although you do get a discount for buying in bulk.

  • Gundry MD offers an auto-ship agreement, which may be useful for some but feels a little pushy.

  • The customer service department cannot be reached 24/7.

Where To Buy Vital Reds

It can be purchased from the Gundry MD website.

The Final Verdict

Overall, Vital Reds seems to be a very high quality supplement that works. It is backed by some scientific research and contains nothing but healthy, natural ingredients. Additionally, it is backed by a satisfaction guarantee, which means that you don’t have anything to lose. Naturally, there are pros and cons associated with this product, as there are with everything in the world. Overall, however, the disadvantages associated with Vital Reds seem to be quite minor and the advantages certainly outweigh these. If you are committed to your overall health and understand that it is almost impossible to consume all the necessary vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, polyphenols, and probiotics through diet alone, then Vital Reds may just be the supplement for you.

Please, please, please stop with the constant advertising. It is over the top and others feel the same way. The videos are too long and can’t be fast forwarded. I know the product, am on it, and I read the book , but the push to sell puts the company in the wrong light. Let people order and then trust them to order more if they like it. We don’t need the barage of ads on our computers and smart phones. It makes it look fraudulent and that the company isn’t doing well. It really gets tiresome. Very wearying to see more ads from Gundry and even the way one is roped in to clicking on the headline of the ad is underhanded.

Amen to that. Have the product, bought the book, have told everyone about it, but it does seem like crass commercialism. I do my homework as I am a scientist, so I think the product is sound, but enough with the advertising tsunami.

My wife read the ad and wanted to try the Vital Reds. We purchased three bottles for $134.85 because it was a lot cheaper per bottle and we both wanted to try it. After a month or so neither of us noticed any increase in energy, and I started getting severe reflux. So I stopped the Vital Reds and the reflux disappeared.

On the website Gundry claims a complete money back guarantee if we are not completely satisfied. DON’T BELIEVE IT!!! Save your bottles, because when you contact them about getting your money back they tell you to return all the bottles, empty or full. You are also told that if you don’t have all the bottles give an explanation. My wife had thrown out the first empty bottle so I explained that to them. I gave them the order number which clearly shows that we purchased three bottles at $134.85. I sent the two bottles back with the explanation, but my credit card was reimbursed for only the two bottles, not the third. I called Gundry’s company and was told that they only refund for the bottles that are returned. Yet no where does it say that in the money back guarantee. I talked to the lady about it, but she just stuck with “the party line”–even though she had our order right in front of her that told her how many bottles we bought and how much we paid.

It’s one thing for the product not to work as advertised. I wouldn’t even bother writing if that had been the case. It’s another to claim a full money back guarantee and then not come through with it. To me that’s just plain lying. SO BEWARE!!! SAVE ALL YOUR BOTTLES OTHERWISE THE GUARANTEE MEANS NOTHING!!!

hi everyone

after reading everyone’s reviews I am very concerned I have been waiting over a week now for my order I also can not track my order it says that my tracking order number hasn’t been added to the shipment list, I normally order for the U.S and it normally takes three working days. The customer number I tried dose not work and the log on to my account also not working, very very concerned I do not have money to burn for the sake of my health 🙁

I’m reading reviews to help me make a decision whether to order or not, but, I wanted to reply to your comment that Dr. Gundry does say in the video that you must return all the bottles (empty or not) for your money back.

I have been using Vital Reds since April 2017. I had shoulder surgery and was off work long term when I came across the video for the product.

I have been having blood tests routinely for the several years now. Prior to my surgery, my LDL cholesterol and triglycerides were approaching a high level that required some kind of intervention (>4 mmol/L).

Approximately 8 months after my blood test, I had my levels checked again. I was thrilled to find that my levels had gone down significantly (<3.15 mmol/L – 3.4mmol/L and below is considered normal). My blood work was the best in over 6 years and that is without the use of any medications. That alone has made me a believer.

Many complain about taste or grittiness of the product. I have had no issues and quite enjoy the taste in a plain 8 oz. glass of water. In terms of an energy boost, I didn't have issues before, so I found no difference.

Admittedly, some of the stomach/bowel issues that people comment about, I did experience. Nothing too drastic, just some loose stool and bloating. I did not experience these issues beyond two weeks. I chalk it up to the probiotics and my gut adjusting to Vital Reds.

I'm in agreement that the pricing can be better. I joined the VIP plan and was offered more competitive pricing than that advertised.

I find their customer service to be quite good. I had dealt with them several times as Gundry MD had billing issues and were not able to ship to their international . In terms of a blitz in calls/adverts, I was called on a few occasions asking to sign up for their VIP program or offering special promotional rates. After politely advising them that I was already a VIP member and had purchased a year supply, they apologized and wished me well.

To end, I am a firm believer in their product and would recommend Vital Reds to anyone who is considering its use. I also enjoy the emails that I get from Dr. Gundry talking about various issues, recipes, recommendations, etc.

Yeah! I think Pro biotics Somehow interfere with this Product! Don’t know for sure but The first time I started taking vital reds I did get bloating that I didn’t have before taking the Pro Biotics alone//// I stopped the Pro biotics when I started Vital Reds Again…. up again

Regarding the “grittyness” I use a shaker bottle with a wire stirring sphere inside with just 1 cup/8 oz of water, and if I shake it for more than 30 seconds and even let it sit for a few seconds, the grittyness is gone or almost gone. If I’m in a hurry and don’t shake it well then, yes, it is a bit gritty. Either way acceptable to me.

I have searched relentlessly for something to help my 89 year old mother with her horrible skin problems. Honestly I tried everything I could find on the market …….at least I thought I had. A friend recommended Dr. Gundry’s Vital Red product. Although I thought it was expensive I decided to take a chance. In less than 3 weeks my mom’s problems disappeared!!!!!!! Amazing!!!! So I bought another jar and started giving it to my grandson who suffers from psoriasis. My GOD. The Vital Reds cures every single spot on his body. At age 15 he also suffered from some acne. Zap…the ance was gone and beautiful skin appeared. I can’t recommend this product enough. I tell everyone I meet how this has changed the lives of my loved ones. Now the whole family takes it everyday. It truly works. I thought the taste was a title funky at first but now we all like it. I drink it every single morning. Hope this helps.

Yes, skin health improvment has been noticeable since starting VItal Reds three months ago, especially in my face, glowing a bit more at my age. At a graduation party recently with my four years younger sister, me 70. When introduced to my nephew’s new girl friend she asked which one of us was older [oops!], and when I told her, she said she had thought the reverse. I played it off of course, but folks are noticing my appearance a bit.

Sending positive vibes:::
I’ve been taking vital reds, pre bio thrive, and primal plants for 10 months now. I decided to leave a comment because a lot of the comments I have read – have noted different effects. I did not have any health issues, just lacking energy. I started with vital reds every morning, then added the pre-bio thrive. I did notice a difference with the vitals, then it took my stomach about a month to adjust to the pre-bio ( I knew that it was doing good things so I just kept taking it until my body felt on track. ) It felt like it was “cleaning out the garbage”. I then started on the primal plants. I take the primal plants for the nutrition value.

I take one scoop of each in a 6oz glass of coconut water blended with a lot ice- it tastes great and I never miss it- first thing in the am. I did watch all the videos, read Gundry’s books and watched him on TV as well. I love my products and I purchase them all in 6 month supplies for the best discount and I haven’t had an issue with customer service. I have sustained energy all day, clear thoughts and focus; although other people may have had bad or no effects, keep in mind everyone’s bodies are different – that does not mean that a product is a rip off or doesn’t work, it means – it just does not work for “you”. On another note, you may have had one bad experience with customer service, not everyone is on their A game everyday. 8 times out of 10 I get the wrong info from AT&T, but it’s not bad customer service on the companies part- just that individual .

Kerri – I sat through the lengthy Vital Reds Video and came directly here for reviews.

I can’t help noticing you watched all the videos, read all the books and even purchased products that weren’t immediately promoted. You then quoted verbatim the promotional spiel from the company… Very Naughty!

I have been using this product for 8 months along with the preothrive and the diet on Dr.Gundry book diet evolution and I have lost 44 lbs. I exercise once a week about 40 min. I highly recommend Dr. Gundry’s products. I feel great and have lots of energy.

I was skeptical — I wanted healthier probiotic and energy boosterfor my body–and to help to increase my immune system after cancer treatments. I did get both Vital Reds and The Prebiothrive. I started Vital Reds first mix with coconut water and frozen berries. Waaaay too sweet! I was nausea. I cut out the frozen berries and did next day with coconut water again and added spinach and 1/2 apple with ice–oh and ground cinnamon sticks. Much better. Not as sweet. My body felt sick first 3 days but I think more from depleted and malnourished cells than Vital Reds. 4TH DAY. I did Vital Reds and added PrebioThrive in morning–plus decided to add Vital Reds again in evening for next 5 days. So come, 9th day. WOW! My Body was re-energized and feeling so much better when I woke up. I lost 4lbs which I was not really trying to diet. I had ice cream several days.

By 3rd week– I could not believe my transition of energy and no hunger pangs to munch all day. My skin feels soft and I could feel a difference in my body n energy. My husband has noticed it as well. He does not like berries so will not drink it.
I lost 8lbs total–I was not trying. Most Important for me>>I have energy to walk my dogs a couple blocks every morning and afternoon. Cancer treatments can really damage your body cells. I could not eat, I could not walk most days pass the front door. I was drained and slept most days not feeling any better.

Now Vital Reds is really helping– I truly believe–to repair those damaged cells done by radiation and chemo. I know it will take more time to heal–and Vital Reds might be a bit expensive to some. I am Very thankful.

If you are already healthy, energetic, and watch your diet. You may not feel any difference in body except softer skin and healthier hair. But if been through a devastating illness– this will greatly help get on your feet again. I am on 6weeks now. I cant go without it. I will skip breakfast sometimes– but always take my health drink with me. So worth it!

Got my Vital Reds and took my first dose. I was very suspicious. I am an author and had to do a 40 min. rehearsal for a presentation at 1:30 in the afternoon. I blew thru the rehearsal without and error of any kind. Not my usual performance I have ADHD and Dyslexia. I quite frankly was amazed. My usual sort of a buzz was gone and I was unusually sharp. A completely true story. May not work tomorrow but I am most impressed with how well it worked today.

We have been taking Vital reds every day since the beginning of 2017. Neither my wife or I noticed any real difference but we were willing to press on with the product. But the marketing, sales and distribution system of this company is woeful! Nothing but upselling, excuses, and grief from them! Bought twice this year…each time was a test. My last order a couple weeks ago somehow “disappeared” from their system and they just can’t seem to get the issue squared away. We think it’s because they no longer wish to meet the (good) price we got for our second order. At his rate we’ve lost all confidence in the company and their products (not even sure anymore that Vital Reds is anything more than a typical supplement marketing con}. Buyer beware!!

Chronic Constipation for 2 years from taking opiate meds.. I tried every natural and pharma out there. Pharma made me bleed. Natural worked for a week or two.. Coconut oil, Olive Oil, prunes, etc. THANK YOU DR GUNDRY for VITAL REDS.. I am a regular human being again for over 3 months now.. Increased energy and libido. I took a few days for my body to adjust to all the goodies but since then, daily with a glass of cool water in the morning and I NEVER fear of constipation.. I am losing weight too.. I sound like a paid advertisement don’t I? Nope.. was very skeptical, I never believe the hype of these type of things. However,, every ingredient he uses in it is natural. No drugs. And no one has proved it isn’t the real deal.. The proof is in the trying it.. I am on it and do not see any time stopping it.. for a $1.50 a day NON-PHARMA to cure my constipation alone is worth the price and then some.. Give it a week or so.. Let your body adjust to operating under good conditions before you decide it made you sick.. I mean unless you are convulsing of course.. common sense is your friend.. Thank you Dr. Gundry.. GREAT STUFF. I wish I could afford to take all of your supplements.. to my dismay…

I started using Vital Reds about four months ago. I am 57 years old and suffer from gout. I had changed my diet and was taking MEDS and still having episodes that would last for days. Since I’ve been using Vital Reds and no MEDS I have seen great improvement and episodes have not reoccurred.

I drink one blueberry smoothie with Purified water every day. This Allows me to deviate from my diet and be able to eat chicken or meat one day a week without a episode witch is fantastic. Instead of waking up in the morning and not being able to walk, was very frustrating and painful for me. For those of you that have gout you understand. I have helped several other people with gout by telling them about my use of Vital Reds and blueberry smoothie with Purified water a change of diet is a must. I would like to thank you for this product it has been a game changer for me, now enjoying life again and finally having control.

While dubious about the weight loss benefits, I do believe after using Vital Reds for over four months, that the overall benefits are excellent.

I’ve read many reviews on other websites mentioning problems with taste or ability to dissolve and am perplexed by those comments. The taste is excellent in my opinion, and it dissolves 99% instantly with a 8 to 10oz glass of water and stirring with a spoon. Sometimes there will be a very small amount of powder lumps floating at top edges of the water after stirring, which is easily resolved by pressing them up against the glass with the back of the spoon and then stirring a bit more.

I’ve had good results with Vital Reds, but the huge benefits have been ones realized by our 20 year old daughter who has suffered from auto immune issues with the most debilitating one being chronic fatigue. So far, after about 6 weeks of her using Vital Reds along with an additional probiotic and a women’s multi vitamin, she has experienced dramatic increase in energy and improved sleep. We are keeping an eye out for longer term improvements and will be very curious to see what happens when fall allergy season kicks in when she seems to have her most acute issues with health.

Greetings, I too have struggled with auto-immune and severe sensitivities with environmental allergies. Your daughter needs to go on the Plant Paradox diet in Gundry’s latest book and fully detox her body, eliminating all chemical exposure that has been altering her hormones and microbiology. It is nothing short of miraculous how the body begins to heal itself when you eliminate all these things that were essentially poisoning the body. I am no longer in chronic pain, no longer fatigued and no longer over sensitive to seasonal changes. I do take a tincture shot of Golden Seal and Echinacea with local raw honey when there are big pollen blooms and Monk fruit is a natural anti-histamine too.

Hi Christine — make sure that your daughter is careful when it comes to the “cruciferous vegetables” that Gundy mentions in his pyramid. If she has Hashimoto’s, which is a thyroid auto-immune disease, broccoli and cauliflower do more harm than good. For that matter, oftentimes the patient is their own best doctor, i.e., some trial and error, and biofeedback, is needed to find just the right diet for the individual.

LiveLong and Prosper- I have Hashimoto’s and have not heard that broccoli and Cauliflower do harm. What type of negative
reaction ?
