Looking at some diet products can be painful, especially if there’s no scientific backing for the formula. Let’s find out if Ruby Reds is in this group. We dug deep into the ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer service. Additionally, we studied hundreds of consumer comments and reviews. We then shortened and summarized to give you the info you need.
What You Need to Know
To begin with, Ruby Reds is a dietary supplement consisting of fruit and vegetable blends, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics and enzymes. The recommended serving is one rounded scoop a minimum of once per day; supposedly promoting weight-loss. One of the benefits is it’s easy to mix.
There is no information as to when the supplement was introduced, but the parent company of Ruby Reds is New Vitality. We noticed that the formula doesn’t appear to include artificial sweeteners, a good start. You can buy the product on the website and through other retailers. We like that we were able to find some supportive comments and the money-back guarantee is nice, but read on…
Taste – “Too Sweet?”
The first negative aspect we found is Ruby Reds taste. “When you purchase supplements containing fruit blends, there is a chance it’ll be sweet,” said our Research Editor. “What customers don’t expect is to feel overpowered. If a product is not flavorful, dieters will simply go with a different solution.”
“The taste and texture of this is simply terrible. My expectations weren’t that high regarding taste, either!,” reported a user.
“Mixed with water I found this totally unpalatable. The first time I used it I mixed it with a smoothie and I thought it left a slight nasty aftertaste but hadn’t tried it again until today just mixed with water and just couldn’t stand the taste,” said a customer.
Poor Customer Service – “Not Helpful?”
According to multiple customer reviews in forums, the service department is not helpful. “The company is a nightmare to deal with. Have been trying for 4 months to cancel auto-delivery but they keep shipping it. Beware of doing business with this company,” commented a dieter.
“I was promised a return call. Still no call 2 weeks later,” said a customer.
“Why is the company not answering questions from concerned customers?,” offers a consumer.
Our research shows that if a customer service department is unhelpful, this could become problematic and diminish long-term success. If a company can’t help dieters resolve concerns, there’s an issue.
The Science – “Valid?”
The official website offers a wealth of information about the benefits of the product, but we can’t find any studies linking Ruby Reds ingredients to weight-loss. At DietSpotlight, locating supporting research is critical. If a company can’t offer science to back claims, we have a.
The Bottom Line – Do Ruby Reds Work?
Hmm, we’ve got this one in the bag, so let’s go. There are some positives, like the money-back guarantee and that there are a few favorable customer comments, but have doubts about recommending it because the weight-loss claims aren’t supported by science. Plus, we’re also concerned with acai being included in the formula, which is often added to “fad” supplements with no real clinical backing.
If you’d like to move that scale down, we recommend going with a product providing both a cost savings and ingredients backed by published clinical studies.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. The formula contains a four-ingredient proprietary blend, which has been shown in published scientific studies to help increase fat loss and ignite metabolism. We can’t find any chatter about negative side effects and reviews around the web highlight excellent results.
Also, the company behind Leptigen is so confident in the supplement, they’re providing a Special Trial Offer, a good decision.
