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 About Ruby Reds

To begin with, Ruby Reds is a dietary supplement consisting of fruit and vegetable blends, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics and enzymes. [1] [2] 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…

Ruby Reds 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.” [3][4]

“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 problem.

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. [5]

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.

Ruby Reds: What You Should Know

Ruby Reds is a dietary supplement claiming to include all the nutritional foods we need to stay at our optimum level of health. Many of these foods we do not usually include in our everyday diet. This is a natural mixture of many fruits, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The official Ruby Reds website makes many claims about the benefits of using this product. These include the claim that it works as an antioxidant, absorbing substances that may otherwise harm the body, similar to Animal Pak and Organo Gold. It is also claimed that it contains bacteria-living organisms that can help digestion. All these factors combined help with general health, anti-aging, digestion and breaking down of food through certain enzymes and pro-biotic blends. Ruby Reds is recommended to be taken as a smoothie, and as such comes with a recipe booklet for many smoothie ideas that each use a small serving of Ruby Reds. This means that the product is not only advertised as a healthy drink, but also a tasty and filling one that can be mixed with a variety of other foods (such as yogurt, milk and juice).

Ruby Reds Ingredients

IMMUNE & ANTI-AGING INGREDIENTS: Acerola, Astaxanthin , Blackberries, Blood Oranges, Blueberries, Cantaloupe, Carrots, Cranberries, Eleuthero Root, Lecithin, Plums, Kiwi, Mangos, Noni, Passion Fruit, Red Currants, Red Grapes, Star Fruit, Strawberries, Tangerine Oranges Tomatoes, Watermelons; DIGESTIVE SUPPORT: Apple Pectin, Apricots, Bilberries, Dietary Fiber, Nectarines, Papayas, Peaches, Pears, Pineapple, Protein, Rice Bran; CARDIOVASCULAR SUPPORT: Pomegranates, Barley, Cherries, Flax Seed, Grape Seed Extract, Guava, Oat Bran, Phytosterols, Prunes, Red Delicious Apples, Red Raspberries, Soy Protein; VITAMINS: Folic Acid, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Riboflavin, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C; MINERALS: Calcium, Copper, Zinc (Oxide), Magnesium, and Phosphorus.

Ruby Reds Product Features

Ruby Reds is claimed to taste like fruit punch and is taken by mixing a serving with water, preferably in a blender. There are 30 servings in one nine ounce container, which costs $31.45 from the official website, or $59.85 for three month's serving. While Ruby Reds makes use of fruit concentrates, there is scientific evidence that certain fruit concentrates can defend the body against disease later in life though this depends on the specific nutritional blend of the product. Other products that claim multiple benefits, like the prostate health and male enhancement heralded by Prosvent and Prolongz, also fall short in this way.

While the list of ingredients is huge, it is important to look at the nutritional information of the product (shown on the official site). This clearly shows that it is a multi-vitamin drink but contains only small amounts of some of its advertised ingredients. This may mean that it is only required for people who have a specific nutritional need. Bear in mind that FDA standards do require certain claims to be backed up with scientific proof, but there have been mixed reviews on this product with many claiming to feel the benefits, and some dismissing many of the claims.

Advantages

  • Ruby Reds contains many vitamins and minerals.
  • This product may improve your overall health.

Disadvantages

  • Ruby Reds does not contain a powerful thermogenic ingredient.
  • The official website doesn't provide any clinical data showing this product will help you lose weight.
  • Ruby Reds seems more like a vitamin supplement than a diet product.

Ruby Reds Conclusion

Doubtless Ruby Reds is a product that will improve the overall health of your body. There is a ton of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that may keep your body running in top shape. The only problem with this product is that it doesn't seem like it would help with weight loss unless you used it with some sort of meal replacement drink or other supplement.

Is there any soy in Ruby Red? I am allergic and can’t have any thing with soy in it.

Hi Phyllis, please refer to our ingredient page to learn more. But yes, Ruby Reds contains soy protein.

Ruby Reds customer service was very perfessional to me.

Hi Verdeanna. We’re thrilled to hear you had a good experience with Ruby Reds customer service. smile

I just started taking Ruby Red today and I hope it will help me

I’ve been using Ruby Reds for year’s. I was diagnosed with RA in 2008 and a friend who has Lupus told me about it.I mix mine in a 16oz bottle of water. It is alittle gritty and probably would taste better mixed with some type of juice. I stopped for a few years and I feel the difference . I started up again because it did my body good .

This product uses stevie as a sweetener. I hate the taste of stevie. I would suggest you try this sweet error before spending $40 on a trial of Ruby Redstone.

What happens when you call New Vitality to cancel auto-ship?

If it’s a busy day, you get to listen to the most annoying elevator music & constant repetition of info that your call will be answered in order it was made etc.
Then when you finally get to talk to customer service rep & try to cancel auto-ship you are asked why & then rep tries to talk you out of your decision, with claim of just trying to save you money & basically do what’s best for you, and while they’re twisting your arm, you are forced to twist their arm & beg/demand that they just PLEASE cancel your auto-ship & then if you beg enough they’ll finally grant your request, but if you’re too rude as I was last time I tried to cancel, the operator just hangs up on you.

Very annoying.

Thankfully I had my old credit card replaced with the “chip” card after ordering. They were forced to ship free stuff, or cancel. My experience of EVER reaching a person was negative as well

BEWARE! they advertise “no synthetics”. Ascorbic Acid is synthetic Vit. C. Most of their fruit is non organic. When I called them for more info. On Vit. C and where the fruit comes from, I was promised a return call. Still no call 2weeks later.

Can this product be taken if you are on cholesterol medicine

Hey, Fran. You would have to confirm with your doctor that these products would be safe to combine.

Would like to order ruby red but see no order form on this web site

new vitality is the website to order from
I’ve used the product for years, and have felt the difference

I am diabetic. What is the recommended serving amount and how many carbs per serving?

I don’t have any at the moment, but it comes with a scoop which is about a teaspoon size, and you mix it with whatever, I use water. it tastes delicious and I don’t think there is sugar in it.

Is this the product that was advertised on the radio some time back, developed by an Irishman who had a lot of sickness in his family, and devoted his life to developing healthy drinks? What was the Irishman’s name, I seem to have forgotten it. I think he might of had a PhD in nutrition or something.

Hmm you might be a bit turned around… Anyone heard this commercial?

Powder does not completely dissolve. Why is this?

Are you putting the exact recommended dosage of one rounded spoon’s scoop? It may not dissolve if you put too much, Lyn.

I love this product. I mix it with oz of sweetened or unsweetened almond milk. It does better if I blend in blender but I can drink it after putting in shaker. I don’t know why people complain about the taste, I think it tastes good. People have asked me if I am losing weight. I have lost a lot of stomach bloat and don’t need an afternoon nap.Sleeping like a baby. No digestive problems at all and I feel great. I also like IVL’s Product Osteo HA. Has really helped my pain and fibromyalgia.

I like RubyRed…taste is good…easy to use. After taking it for 1 month the dry patches on my elbows disappeared and my hair aND skin looked great. I also experienced better energy and slept through the night!

I have not use mine yet as I need to know if theres any form of grapefruit in it on cholesterol drugs and cannot have grapefruit ,of any kind thanks

Have this product. Love it. It does NOT HAVE GRAPEFRUIT! Most companies know about how many drugs interact

It definitely gives me increased energy, but is it just me, does it give anyone else gas and bloating? No stomach pains just gassy feeling??

just started taking and have major gas issues

I,m 5 year after kidney transplant and my immune system has to be low.Can I use Go Ruby Go?

Hey, Arkady. Take the formula to your doctor; he/she will be able to accurately assess your risks and benefits.

I was wondering if go ruby go effects the affects of any prescription drugs?

Can I drink coffee while taking go ruby go?

Are there any nuts, nut oil or nut derivatives in this product?

why are you asking questions on someone else’s website? go to new vitality.com ask there.

I certainly don’t consider myself a weakling but wow what on earth are you sealing your containers with, for the life of me i cannot take the lid off the ruby reds, i have to get my husband to do it, it has actually given me a sore hand trying to open the container. i am sure i am not the only one to find this.
