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.  

Cost/Price Plans

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.  

Refund Policy

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.   

If you have any experience with this company or their products, please leave your Dr. Steven Gundry reviews below.

We love this product

We are enjoying this product. My mother is 97 years young and she says that she gains energy from Vital Reds to do her gardening shores. I also noticed that it gives me added energy.

Customer Service Needs some Training on People Skills.

September7, 2016

There customer service is difficult. I paid for the extra fee for express shipping (2 day)....My 3 jars, show up on Day 7. When I called and complained they told me they would refund the Shipping Charges. Additionally I was told, they could not do the 2 day shipping. When the shipping charges were drafted from my account on the day I ordered there was no problem taking the funds THAT day. Regarding refunding the Shipping Fee, they claim it will take 3 to 5 business days for this to be ACCEPTED into their system. This information took 2 phone calls for me to find out. I have to monitor my bank account/credit card to see if they do what they said. There website stated 2 day delivery, FALSE.
I have called Customer Service 2 times over the last week, and I am extremely frustrated with this company.
Who Knows if the product works or not. Who knows if I will order again, if the product is the best thing since Slice Bread, with all the frustration with the phone customer support.

I ordered one jar and got a charge and invoice for four. 5 minutes after the order was placed I email asking that the order be corrected or canceled.... and they said it already shipped... RIGHT !! They are scammer. I now see many other reviews where the same thing was done to them. BEWARE... don't give them your credit card or paypal details... they'll over charge you !!

Hi Patrick,

My name is Aria with Gundry MD. I am so sorry to hear about the confusion during your ordering process.

After looking into your order, I see that one of our customer service representatives responded to your email the next day. We usually ship our products out next day so that our customers can enjoy their product as soon as possible.

I am happy that customer service was able to give you detailed instructions about how to return the product for a full refund. If you have any additional questions or concerns about this, please do not hesitate to reach out to me personally at [email protected]

Thank you for the opportunity to make this right.

Recent purchase and check out experience

September3, 2016

I went ahead and chose the 6 bottle option, but upon checkout it kept bringing up last chance deals, one was to add a 12 bottle order for additional savings. I clicked on it thinking that was my new order total only to find that they added 12 additional bottles to the original 6 bottle order for a total of 18 bottles instead of 12.

This set off warning signals of a shady company, also there was about 10 more offers I had to bypass just to check out.

Once I got my confirmation email and saw the 2 separate charges, I called customer service asked to cancel the 2nd order of 12 bottles. She wasn't the friendliest sounding but did say that after the orders were completed I would receive a refund after 7 to 9 business days even though I just placed the order 5 minutes ago. I was tempted to cancel the whole order but I still wanted to try the product. Hopefully they will issue the refund promptly as I've had issues w/other companies in issuing refunds timely. When I actually try the product I'll give my rating, for my initial check out experience I didn't like it so I give it a 2.

Aria Goodman you sound so condescending to these people's responses. You alone make me not want to order any of these products, nor let my friends or family do so. I work in health care and I can say that a little pill doesn't fix everything, and neither does your condescending tone.

Grundry's Vital Reds

July17, 2016

I purchased the 3 bottle package and on my first bottle. After two weeks "NOTHING" different experienced. No extra energy, no additional pick up, nothing different! I thought this would be the case but was hoping the web site was accurate. Also the very small amount taken in each scoop is so small, I don't see how it could make a difference in a human body. The amount per product in that scoop appears to be meaningless. I have even tried the Vital Red's twice a day to see if if did anything for me....NOTHING!!!
I am a very active 68 year old and work on my ranch daily. I am in good health and just thought if this product gave me an extra boost, hey why not try it. I think it is a waste of money and doubt I will get an money back as they have mixed refund policy from the bottle, web site to customer service. I am not worried about the money but in my opinion, this is pure "BUNK".
By the way it does not mix up well, leaves a very chalky taste in your mouth, but is very doable if it worked.

Hello, My name is Aria and I am the Customer Relations Manager here at Gundry MD. I am so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with your purchase of Vital Reds. It usually takes between 1-2 months to experience the benefits that Vital Reds has to offer, but this changes, depending on the person. I advice you to keep trying Vital Reds a little longer, but if you are still unsatisfied with your purchase, I will gladly offer you a full refund. Please email me at [email protected], at your earliest convenience. Thank you!

I just finished my first bottle of Vital Reds and the only thing that I have noticed is a change in my stool. This tells me something is happening, but it is still too early to know if it is good or bad. I have called the customer care number twice and have gotten good friendly service both times. The first time was when part of my order never arrived. THEY RESHIPPED IT FOR FREE and it arrived. So I give them 5 stars for good service on that. Their web site could provide more product info on how to best use their products. My complaint is that when I wrote support I got this as an auto response ... Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

[email protected]

So I wrote to Aria above and did not get the failed response. As this appears to be a fairly new company I will assume that this is a glitch that they will soon correct.
