The Metabolic Boosting Blend Behind Gundry Vital Reds
March 22, 2018
Vital Reds — can this supplement really boost your metabolism? After all, in the world of weight-management supplements, it can be hard to determine what works — and what doesn’t.
The first sign of positive evidence seems to lie with Dr. Gundry himself — the creator of Vital Reds. Dr. Gundry was a world-class heart surgeon at Loma Linda University when he came across a patient who was dangerously overweight. The man was considered a “hopeless case” that no amount of medical intervention could help. Surprisingly, this man was able to reverse his “hopeless” condition and lose a significant amount of weight with the help of a combination of natural, dietary nutrients.
This man’s health reversal changed some of Dr. Gundry’s views on the body, and he began to research the power of certain nutrients to improve health. Eventually, Dr. Gundry — who himself was significantly overweight — was able to lose 70 pounds in only a year.
The anecdotal evidence is pretty convincing, and plenty of other people seem to be finding help with Vital Reds, as well.
More impressive? There’s quite a bit of science to back up the metabolic-boosting capabilities of the ingredients in Vital Reds. The metabolic-boosting blend includes: cinnamon bark extract, ginger root, green tea leaf extract, white tea leaf extract, turmeric rhizome extract, bitter melon fruit extract, and black pepper fruit.
Here’s a little more on just what makes each one of these fat-burning, metabolic-boosting ingredients so effective:
Cinnamon bark extract: A 2017 study found that 16 weeks of oral cinnamon supplementation resulted in a smaller waist, lower body mass index (BMI), and improved blood sugar levels.
Ginger root: Ginger root promotes satiety — the feeling that you’ve had enough to eat — so it may be able to help prevent overeating.
Green tea leaf extract: A 2013 study showed that consumption of green tea can decrease weight, reduce waist circumference, lower body mass index, and improve blood pressure levels.
White tea leaf extract: Scientific evidence shows that white tea extract is capable of inhibiting the creation of fat cells.
Turmeric rhizome extract: Inflammation is thought to play a role in weight gain, and studies have shown that turmeric can work to bring down levels of inflammation and encourage weight loss.
Bitter melon fruit extract: This sour fruit has been used for centuries in Eastern medicine, and now Western medicine is catching up. Studies have shown that bitter melon fruit extract can help maintain healthy blood sugars, as well as boost weight loss efforts.
Black pepper fruit: You’re probably familiar with the dried version of black pepper fruit — it’s simply the black pepper you use to season your food! But it’s much more than a seasoning. A 2012 study found that the extracted form of black pepper fruit can obstruct the creation of fat cells.
Theoretically, it may be possible to obtain all these ingredients on your own (although, when was the last time you saw bitter melon fruit in the produce section?). But it’s certainly more cost-effective and convenient to get all their metabolic-boosting benefits in powdered supplement form. Just a scoop of Vital Reds in a glass of water, and — voila!
Other Health-Promoting Properties of Vital Reds
A boost in metabolism isn’t the only benefit Vital Reds promise to deliver. The supplement contains three other “blends”:
Polyphenol Blend: This combination of 34 superfruits is intended to support the health of the heart and help promote energy levels.
Digestive Support Blend: Five strains of probiotics work to streamline the digestive process.
Vitamin and Mineral Blend: Eight different forms of vitamin B — along with minerals — work to support energy levels and boost the health of a variety of your body’s systems.
Plenty of supplements promise to help you lose weight. But determining whether or not these supplements are safe can be a tricky task. Many of these weight loss boosters contain ingredients that present negative side effects. And some of these ingredients are downright detrimental to your health!
The good news is that Vital Reds is 100% natural and derived from an array of polyphenol-packed superfruit ingredients. Because the supplement is derived from food sources, there’s virtually no risk that you’ll experience side effects. It’s also third-party tested to ensure the ingredients are pure. Phew!
And it turns out your money is safeguarded too. Each order of Vital Reds does come with a 90-day money back guarantee. So if you’re not satisfied with the results — Gundry MD will refund your payment.
