Reds+ Product Breakdown

Last year we released a premium greens superfood powder that contained various nutrient dense green vegetables along with digestive enzymes, probiotics, coconut water, and ashwaghanda.

Greens+ provides you with several benefits beyond what other greens powders on the market have to offer. Greens+ boosts natural energy levels, aids digestion, helps manage stress levels, and provides the body with an abundance of micronutrients and antioxidants.

Since Greens+ was a huge hit for us right off the bat and continues to be one of our most popular products in the health and wellness category, it’s only right that we release it’s counterpart! Reds and greens go together like Hydraulic and Demo Day! They are each great on their own, but so much better when combined.

Introducing Reds+: The Ultimate Reds Superfood Powder

You’re probably wondering… what makes Reds+ different from others on the market?

Well, we are glad you asked!

Reds+ is a superfood powder that was formulated to boost natural energy levels, support digestion, promote immune system function, enhance recovery, and increase performance.

Reds+ is 100% naturally flavored and sweetened, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, vegan-friendly, keto-friendly, low sugar, and only 15 calories per serving.

Reds+ contains total of 14 different fruit/vegetable extracts rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients, and micronutrients, including:

  • Watermelon
  • Cherry
  • Acai
  • Beet Root
  • Pomegranate
  • Cranberry
  • Blueberry
  • Strawberry
  • Grape Seed
  • Raspberry
  • Prune
  • Wild Bilberry
  • Rosa Roxburghii
  • Baobab

But we didn’t stop there! Unlike most reds powders on the market, we added several patented and trademarked ingredients to provide you with even more health benefits!

The five patented ingredients in Reds+ are:

  • Fibriss™ - an organic baobab fruit powder from Compound Solutions
  • VitaCherry Sport™ - a Montmorency tart cherry powder from FutureCeuticals
  • Senactiv®  - a panax notogingseng root and rosa roxburghii fruit extract complex from Nuliv Science
  • DigeSEB Super PB™ - a comprehensive digestive enzyme and probiotic blend from Specialty Enzymes and Probiotics
  • PhytoServ® - a phytonutrient-rich fruit blend from FutureCeuticals

Reds+ comes in two refreshing & fruity flavors – Raspberry Sorbet and Strawberry Acai! You can enjoy Reds+ on their own or combine it with Greens+ to create a nutrient powerhouse.

There are several reds powders on the market, but nothing compares to Reds+!

Reds+ versus Greens+

Recently, it’s become quite popular to release superfood powders that contain both reds and greens. However, more often than not, the reds and/or greens are extremely underdosed in order to keep costs down.

So the consumer thinks they are getting a great deal by having both products in one. But, in reality, they are wasting their money and not getting all of the benefits they anticipated.

Instead of following that industry trend, we decided to create a comprehensive greens powder and reds powder that can be taken on their own or together depending on the consumer’s goals, needs, and budget.

For a quick comparison, Reds+ contains 14 different fruits along with prebiotics, fiber, probiotics, Senactiv®, and digestive enzymes. Greens+ contains 10 different greens along with digestive enzymes, ashwaghanda, probiotics, and coconut water powder. Reds+ provides you with the fruits, whereas Greens+ provides you with the vegetables.

Keep reading to learn more about Reds+, including suggested use, stacking, flavors, and a full ingredient breakdown!

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop (~9 grams) of Reds+ with 8-10 ounces of cold water. For optimal results, consume daily. Since Reds+ contains an array of digestive enzymes, we recommend consuming it 15-20 minutes prior to a meal.

Stacking Options

Reds+ stacks well with the following supplements:

Flavors

Strawberry Acai

Reds+ Strawberry Acai is light, refreshing, and fruity! The combination of strawberries and acai berries complement each other in such a way that will leave you coming back for more.

This flavor has just the right amount of sweetness to balance the tartness of the fruit extracts. If you love acai bowls, then this flavor is a must-try!

Raspberry Sorbet

Raspberry sorbet is a delicious frozen treat that’s often enjoyed on a hot summer day. Reds+ Raspberry Sorbet had just the right amount of sweetness to satisfy your cravings while fueling your body.

You can enjoy this flavor on its own or add some citrus to the mix to create your own nutrient-dense cocktail! Either way, Reds+ Raspberry Sorbet is a phenomenal flavor across the board.

Ingredient Breakdown

Fibriss™

Baobab, commonly known as the “tree of life”, is native to Africa and has been around for over 200 million years. Fibriss™ is an organic, wild-harvested, baobab fiber that contains a unique blend of polyphenols, soluble fiber, and insoluble fiber.[1]

Soluble as prebiotics, which feed good bacteria that reside within the gut. Insoluble fiber promotes regularity and healthy bowel movements. Polyphenols also provide the body with beneficial prebiotics to promote a healthy microbiome. Supplementing with Fibriss™ may support gut health, digestion, and regularity.[1]

Fibriss™ was developed by Compound Solutions.

Senactiv®

Senactiv® is a patented, plant-based sport nutraceutical ingredient that consists of Panax Notoginseng root and Rosa roxburghii fruit extract. In multiple clinical trials, Senactiv® has been shown to promote energy production within muscle cells and increase the removal of old cells.[2]

In other words, Senactiv® may help re-energize and regenerate your muscles. Not only can Senactiv® boost your performance and recovery, but it also has anti-aging properties![2] Senactiv® is GRAS, Kosher certified, HALAL certified, Informed Ingredient certified, vegan-friendly, and gluten-free.[2]

Senactiv® was developed by NuLiv Science.

VitaCherry Sport™

VitaCherry Sport™ is a high potency Montmorency tart cherry powder that delivers a full spectrum of phytonutrients. Phytonutrients have been shown to support a healthy inflammatory response and boost the body’s antioxidant system.[3]

VitaCherry Sport™ is five times more concentrated in anthocyanins and nine times more concentrated in total anthos compared to other tart cherry powders.[3] Supplementing with VitaCherry Sport™ may speed up the recovery process by reducing post-exercise soreness and strength loss.[3]

VitaCherry Sport™ was developed by FutureCeuticals.

PhytoServ®

PhytoServ® is a proprietary line of powdered plant-based extracts that make it possible to deliver serving claims from the beneficial phytonutrients present in fruits and vegetables. PhytoServ® phytonutrients provide the body with a powerful source of naturally occurring antioxidants.[4]

Adequate levels of antioxidants are required to support our immune system and protect against the potentially harmful effects of oxidative stress.[4]

Reds+ utilizes the PhytoServ® Fruit Blend which contains grape seed, wild blueberry, raspberry, cranberry, prune, tart cherry, bilberry, and strawberry extract. Each serving of Reds+ contains 150 milligrams of PhytoServ® Fruit Blend, which equates to over 2 servings of fruit.[4]

Watermelon Juice Powder

Watermelon juice powder, also known as Citrullus Ianatus, is packed with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, such as vitamin A, vitamin C, and lycopene. It’s also a natural source of citrulline which is an amino acid that promotes blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen delivery by increasing nitric oxide levels.[6]

Watermelon juice powder offers numerous health and performance benefits. Supplementing with watermelon juice powder may support metabolism, a healthy inflammatory response, normal blood pressure levels, and digestive health.[6]

Acai Extract

Acai palm trees, also known as Euterpe olearcea, are primarily found in rain forests located in South America. They produce grape-like fruits known as acai berries that are often touted as a superfood. Acai berries are rich in several micronutrients and antioxidants, most notably anthocyanins.[7]

Some evidence suggests that the consumption of large amounts of anthocyanins supports heart health, cognitive function, and exercise performance. Acai berries may help lower inflammation, activate detoxifying enzymes, and promote immune function.[7]

Beet Root Powder

Beet root is a root vegetable that boasts an impressive nutritional profile. Beet root powder is a concentrated form that’s rich in antioxidants, nitrates, vitamins and minerals.[8] The nitrates found naturally in beet root get converted into nitric oxide within the body.[8]

Nitric oxide causes vasodilation (expansion) of the blood vessels, which allows for more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to be transported throughout the body. Therefore, beet root powder may boost recovery, pumps, and exercise performance.[8]

Furthermore, beets contain a pigment called betalains which possess several anti-inflammatory properties.[8] Supplementing with beet root powder may support gut health, brain health, immune system function, and heart health.[8]

Pomegranate Extract

Pomegranates are round red fruits that contain an abundance of edible seeds known as arils. In general, pomegranates are low in calories, high in fiber, and rich in vitamins and minerals.[9]

What’s more, pomegranates are rich in antioxidants and polyphenolic compounds, such as anthocyanins, punicalagin, and tannins.[9] Consuming an adequate amount of antioxidants is very beneficial for general overall health.[9]

Some studies suggest that supplementing with pomegranate extract may increase exercise endurance by increasing time to exhaustion and improving recovery.[9,10] In terms of health, pomegranate extract may support brain, heart, digestive, and urinary function.[9]

Cranberry Extract

Cranberries contain a high amount of vitamin C, flavonoids, anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, catechins, and triterpenoids.[11] Cranberry extract is commonly used to promote urinary health, but it offers a lot more benefits than just that.[11]

Cranberry extract may support healthy blood sugar levels, immune system function, heart health, and more![11] Cranberries are high in antioxidants which help combat oxidative stress and manage inflammation.[11]

Blueberry Extract

Blueberry extract is a concentrated powder derived from blueberry juice. It’s high in several nutrients, antioxidants, and beneficial plant compounds, such as quercetin and anthocyanins.[12]

In fact, some refer to blueberries as the “king of antioxidants” because they seem to have the highest amount of antioxidants compared to other fruits and vegetables.[12]

Blueberry extract is most notably used to support cognitive function, mood, blood sugar levels, and the cardiovascular system.[12] Furthermore, some evidence suggested that blueberry extract may aid recovery after an intense exercise bout.[12] Overall, blueberries are a nutrient powerhouse chock full of benefits!

Other Ingredients

Reds+ contains the following ingredients to create the flavors and improve mixability:

  • Natural flavors - flavoring
  • Citric acid - flavoring
  • Stevia leaf extract - natural sweetener
  • Silicon dioxide - flow agent

Final Thoughts

The health and wellness category within the dietary supplement industry has taken off in the past 2-3 years. Now more than ever, consumers are looking for premium health/wellness supplements that use fully disclosed labels, minimal ingredients, and natural sweeteners, colors, and flavors.

Before releasing Reds+ and Greens+ we saw a huge gap in the market. Not only where most products under-dosed, the majority of them still used proprietary blends, artificial flavors, colors, and/or sweeteners, and tasted terrible.

We made the decision to raise the bar when it came to superfood powders by using multiple patented/trademarked ingredients, all-natural flavoring systems, and transparent labels. Everything that we put into the Reds+ and Greens+ is right the on the label so you never have to worry about not knowing what is going into your body.
