One of my favorite Gundry MD products is Vital Reds. I love it because when I include it every day in my routine, my skin glows from the inside out.

This revolutionary formula combines the superpowers of 34 polyphenol-rich superfruits with natural fat-burning ingredients and probiotics. Vital Reds helps your body maintain higher energy levels, better digestion, and healthier-looking skin. Here are just some of the benefits I get from this delicious daily drink:

+ More Energy

+ Better Digestions

+ Lectin Defense

+ Glowing Skin


The powder dissolves quickly in cold water and the natural berry flavor tastes really good. What's more the sweet drink is free of sugar, artificial sweeteners, and it's a natural lectin blocker.


Polyphenols attach to proteins. And as we all know by now, lectins are a protein - one that clings to sugar and renders itself indigestible. When polyphenols attach to a lectin, it becomes digestible. That's it in a nutshell.

Kristine glows from drinking her Vital Reds!

As a side-effect of drinking polyphenols every day, my skin is so clear and smooth. I'm 52 in this picture. I am also sharing this photo because it shows the improvement in my nails. This selfie was snapped after a year on the Plant Paradox plan. Those are my natural nails with Deborah Lippmann "SHE WOLF" nail polish. My nails are so much stronger now, and the skin around my nails isn't red or inflamed or peely anymore.


I have a condition called nail psoriasis. It's an autoimmune disease that I was probably predisposed to genetically. And lectins in my diet caused leaky gut. So toxins in my digestive tracked leaked out causing inflammation and disease in my nails. I'm hoping the cuticle cells are not dead. As I've read about lectins and cell death. My hope is to grow the cuticles back on the eight affected nails. Wish me luck!
