About Dr. Steven Gundry
Dr. Steven Gundry, creator of the website GundryMD.com, is “one of the world's most celebrated pediatric heart surgeons” who has created a new view of health and wellness that he promises can help everyone live their best life.
How Does It Work?
As a heart surgeon, Dr. Steven Gundry regularly witnessed the difficulties people have when their bodies become further and further entrenched into issues of bad health, and how many people believe that these problems can only be fixed with prescription drugs or even major surgeries.
Dr. Gundry, on the other hand, began to realize that there was a much simpler and easier way to bring your body back from the brink of serious medical concerns and back to a state of great health and wellness, which he calls “Holobiotics.”
To understand Holobiotics, first people must know that their entire body is dominated by different kinds of microbes. Some of these microbes are good while others are bad, and unfortunately most people choose a diet and lifestyle that kills off their good microbes and increases the growth and multiplication of bad microbes. This loss of microbe balance eventually throws off the wellness balance of your whole body.
Holobiotics is the phrase Dr. Gundry created for the diet and lifestyle choices people must make in order to bring this microbe ratio back into balance in order to lose weight and improve their health. All products sold on Gundry MD have this goal in mind, as does his “Dr. Gundry’s Diet Evolution” book.
Ingredients and Side Effects
Currently Gundry MD is only selling three individual products, including two health supplements and a skincare product called Correct + Calm Redness Relief Cream. Each individual product page will provide customers with a full description of how to use the product, the benefits they can expect from regular use, and a full list of ingredients that are included in each product so customers can tell in advance if they have any sensitivities or known side effects.
All the information available on this website is completely free of charge, so customers can get a better and more well-rounded understanding of the Holobiotics theory of health. At this time, Dr. Gundry’s diet book is not for sale on his own website, but rather through other online retailers like Amazon.com.
For the products which are currently for sale on this website, prices will vary depending on what you are ordering, but are generally priced between $30.00 and $40.00. These products include free shipping and will be discounted if you choose to purchase them in larger volumes.
There is actually a serious discrepancy in the information this website provides on their Refund Policy. The website sales page claims that they offer a 90 Day Refund Policy, where customers can expect a refund of the purchase price in the first 90 days with "no questions, no hassle.”
However, the website’s Terms & Conditions don’t explain the Refund Policy in this same way. Instead, they say the Refund Policy is limited to just 30 days with a valid proof of purchase. Any returns made after 30 days will only be accepted for an exchange, and any products returned after 45 days will not be given a refund or exchange.
Obviously this is a fairly significant discrepancy in these two policies, so concerned customers should contact the Customer Service team for a clarification before they finalize their purchase.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 800-852-0477, by email at [email protected], or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact link.
Unfortunately there are very few reviews available for this website and their products at this time, and those that are available are somewhat mixed in tone, though it would be fair to say that they seem generally positive for the most part.
That being said, customers should be uncomfortable with the clear issues of the Gundry MD Refund Policy, and customers really shouldn’t make any purchases from this website until they speak to someone from Customer Service who can provide full details regarding their returns process, including whether or not products can be open and used and how long customers have to return them.
Competitors and Alternatives?
Certainly there are many different health and wellness books on the market, diet plans on the market, nutritional supplements on the market, and skincare products on the market, so customers looking for alternatives will really need to consider what it is they are specifically looking for before finding an appropriate alternative to Gundry MD.

Great results, I take it first thing when I get up - it is my coffee substitute. I have lots of energy for a 71 year old guy. My wife has mold toxicity and since she has been taking Vita Red, her energy level has increased and the symptoms of mold toxicity have abated somewhat. I mix my Vita Red with pomegranate juice which is a great antioxidant in itself.
I like the flavor of Vital Reds. I am in my first month of use, so I haven't noticed any effect on myself. I hope to be able to notice any that may occur. Otherwise it may be difficult to justify continuing beyond the 3 months supply that I have.
This product offers so many nutrients that I am able to skip several that I had been taking already, such as antioxidants, probiotics, etc. The taste is quite good (this is a first for me and nutrient powders)
and my only complaints are that it needs to be stirred up continually if you don't drink it all at once. I like to sip. Also, when mixing, add liquid to the powder slowly to keep it from clumping. Now if I can just remember to mix it up and drink it!!
Vital Reds-loving it!
After decades of digestive woes I'm finally experiencing definite, palpable improvements. More complete digestion, less diarrhea, and greater energy throughout the day are being felt. I'm sold!
Love the Vital Reds
Both my husband and I have been taking it daily about 3 weeks. We definitely feel the difference. My husband in particular was dealing with “brain fog”. He is 16 year post triple bypass pt. The last year especially has been bad. He was having trouble with remembering some days simple tasks. Since starting taking the vital reds; he doesn’t have the brain fog and has much more energy. For myself. I generally feel better and have more energy.
Love Vital Reds
I really enjoy the taste of Vital Reds, it's given me energy throughout the day. I use to go home a sleep as soon as I got home for many years. I haven't done this since I've been drinking Vital Reds. My cravings are gone, and my appetite for healthy food has improved greatly. I was a snacker (all day snacker) and that is gone now. My acid reflex has not bothered my which I'm very happy about. Weight loss I haven't seen to much of but the swelling in my hands don't happen any more. My rings are lose on my fingers which they were always tight by the end of the day. I truly believe I'm heading in the right direction and I already plan on continue drinking Vital Reds for 3 months to see the full outcome.
My review has to do with the Vital Reds and Primal Plants products. After receiving the products, I noticed "Other Ingredients" of "natural flavors" which I did not notice on the website. Since I read Dr. Gundry's "The Plant Paradox" and he talks about the evils of gluten, I asked the question because the products are not labeled gluten free. I understand that products can be gluten friendly, that is they do not contain ingredients with gluten, but are not manufactured in a gluten-free facility. These are good for anyone who does not have celiac disease. The answer I got was a convoluted response that basically said "consult with your doctor". Huh? It's a simple question. This raises a red flag with me; why would someone talk about the evils of gluten and then not sell gluten-free products?
Vital Reds need more time but seems good
I've only been taking Vital Reds for a couple of weeks, so it's still early days since it can take 30 days to feel full effects. However I do seem to have a little more energy and clearer mind, so cant wait to see effects after a couple more weeks.
My wife and I take 1 spoon each with water in the morning, light breakfast a little later. Normal day meal for lunch and dinner. This week we feel we have lost about 1 kg.
Very good product!
I love this product, but the only reason I would not give it an 'excellent' rating, is because it is too sweet for my liking. I, unlike most of the population, do not like things sweet, with the exception of desserts. But that's just me. I would still buy the product.
