Country Farms Super Reds Review

Country Farms Super Reds is a superfood formula containing a range of ‘red’ fruit, vegetables, and herbal extracts. The formula is USDA-certified organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan, meaning it’s suitable for a wide range of people!

This Super Reds formula is supposed to provide the consumer with powerful polyphenols, antioxidants, and enzymes that will not only help protect the cells from radical damage but provide an array of other health benefits too, such as increased natural energy levels.

Country Farms has been on the supplement scene for over four decades (although Country Farms Super Greens is probably better known) and is still one of the most popular supplement companies in the US today, so clearly, it must be doing something right!

I’m keen to take a closer look at the formula to see if it really does provide the consumer with nutritious antioxidant goodness, or whether it’s simply popular because it’s produced by a well-known, trusted brand.

If you’re also keen to take a closer look a the formula, or you’re thinking of purchasing it, take a look at my full Country Farms Super Reds review below.

Country Farms Super Reds First Impressions

Although Country Farms has been around for over four decades, I’m super impressed by the modern, aesthetically pleasing, informative website that the brand has. As well as the vibrant branding and the informative content, the addition of the health guide calculator and recipe blog is a nice touch.

Looking at the Super Reds formula, I’m still as impressed. The tubs branding is bold, catchy, and attractive – this is definitely something I’d take a look at in-store!

There’s also clear and concise information about the product, which is great to see. The only thing that could possibly benefit this page is a description of the red ingredients within the formula.

Overall, my first impression of Country Farms Super Reds is a positive one, so I’m really excited to take a closer look at the formula!

Background on Country Farms

Founded in 1975, Country Farms is a US-based supplement brand that aims to bring nutritious supplements to those that otherwise don’t have time to really focus on their nutrition.

The brand aims to create the freshest, most potent supplements at the most affordable prices and does so within cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified labs in the USA.

Around for more than 45 years, Country Foods is a popular household name within the US when it comes to supplements, with product ranges being sold in places such as Walmart and CVS Pharmacy.

Country Farms Super Reds Benefits

Country Farms provides information about the Super Reds formula’s benefits, and overall, the formula is supposed to provide the consumer with essential phytonutrients, enzymes, and polyphenols.

The brand goes onto say that the formula, packed with these types of ingredients, will boost energy levels, protect the cells from radical change, reduce signs of aging, support heart health, improve circulatory health, and support the functions of the brain.

Country Farms Super Reds Ingredients

Country Farms Super Reds contains 48 super reds ingredients, as well as a selection of natural flavoring ingredients and sweeteners. Unfortunately, all of the ingredients within this formula exist within a proprietary blend, which means it’s impossible to actually confirm or disapprove of the efficacy of the formula.

Nonetheless, I’ll take a closer look into the formula’s efficacy later in this review. First, let’s take a look at the ingredients label.

Here is the complete list of the Country Farms Super Reds ingredients:
  • Organic Reds Phytonutrient Blend (5.36g) – Tomato, Carrot, Beetroot Fiber, Beet Juice, Grape Skin Extract, Grapeseed Extract, Orange Bioflavonoids, Amla Fruit Extract, Apple Pectin, Citrus Pectin, Grapefruit Pectin, Red Wine Extract, Quercetin Dihydrate, Cranberry Extract, Grapefruit Extract, Organic Fruit Blend (Organic Blueberry, Organic Banana, Organic Raspberry, Organic Bilberry Fruit, Organic Cherry, Organic Goji, Organic Strawberry, Organic Grape, Organic Acai, Organic Maqui, Organic Pomegranate, Organic Pineapple, Organic Apple, Organic Papaya), Acerola Extract, Aronia Extract, Bilberry Extract, Camu Camu Extract, Cocoa Extract, Coffee Berry, Elderberry, Guava Leaf, Mango, Plum, Pomegranate Extract, Radish, Rhubarb, Black Currant Extract, Resveratol, Pterostilbene.
  • Other Ingredients – Maltodextrin, Citric Acid, Guar Gum, Natural Flavors, Silicon Dioxide, And Rebaudioside.

Here is the supplement facts label:

How does Country Farms Super Reds Taste?

The Super Reds formula is ‘Mixed Berry’ flavored, and sweetened with maltodextrin, citric acid, and stevia extract.

The formula’s taste has mixed reviews, with some saying that they love it and its sweetness, but others claiming that it’s overly sweet, super greens tasting, and gritty.

Side Effects

Country Farms doesn’t warn of any potential side effects that are associated with the Super Reds formula. Unfortunately, the brand also doesn’t say who should or shouldn’t consume the formula.

I would always recommend those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, under 18, dealing with a medication condition, or taking medication, to consult a doctor before consuming any new supplement.

Does Country Farms Super Reds Work?

Unfortunately, as mentioned above, the Country Farms Super Reds formula is made up of one huge proprietary blend that totals 5.36g.

The problem with proprietary blends, especially ones containing such a large number of ingredients, is that it’s impossible to know how much of each ingredient sits within the blend, and therefore it’s extremely difficult to work out the efficacy of the formula.

However, we can take a look at recommended doses of some of the ingredients within the formula, and compare these amounts to the total proprietary blend amount, to see if the ingredients are sufficiently dosed or not.

Although there aren’t many standard recommended doses when it comes to super red ingredients, beetroot, acerola, and grape seed extract are some red ingredients within this formula that do have standard recommended doses!

It’s highly unlikely, if not impossible, that the ingredients within this formula will be sufficiently dosed.

The recommended amount of beetroot powder is 3.5 – 7g, the recommended amount of acerola cherry is 3 – 3.6g, and the recommended amount of grape seed extract is 100mg – 800mg.

Therefore, it’s highly unlikely, if not impossible, that the ingredients within this formula will be sufficiently dosed, especially seeing as these are just three of the ingredients within the blend!

Therefore, it’s unknown whether the formula will actually provide the health benefits that the brand claims it will.

Country Farms Super Reds Reviews

Country Farms Super Reds is most popularly sold online on Amazon, so there’s a wide range of customer reviews on there – over 2,200 in fact! Overall, the formula scores 4.4 stars out of 5 stars.

Let’s take a look at a selection of these customer reviews!

I love the taste!!!!!! Great results, feeling great! Must try!!!!! I will be purchasing again! My morning energy drink! No after taste!!! 5-star reviewer

Tastes awful. Thick and foamy. Definitely need to mix with a smoothie. 3-star reviewer

This has very little nutrition and has a fake sugar aftertaste. This was a complete fail and totally not worth the money. 1-star reviewer

Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

As the Country Farms Super Reds formula is sold primarily on Amazon, the return and refund policy on Amazon exists. The brand doesn’t appear to have a money-back guarantee.

Where to buy Country Farms Super Reds?

You can buy Country Farms Super Reds on Amazon, iHerb, and Walmart, as well as in stores such as Walmart, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS pharmacy.

There’s a list of the stores that Country Farm’s formulas are sold on the Country Farms website.

Is It Worth The Price?

Country Farms Super Reds is sold in tubs that contain 20 servings of formula.

One tub of Country Farm Super Reds costs $14.97 on Amazon, meaning the cost per serving of the formula works out at $0.75.

Although the formula is basically one huge proprietary blend, this formula is incredibly cheap, so it might be attractive to those that are looking for a reds formula on a low-budget.

The Bottom Line

From the get-go, I had really high hopes for this brand, simply because it’s a well-known, trusted supplement brand in the US and has been in business for over forty years.

However, I have to say that unfortunately, I wouldn’t purchase this formula. The fact that the formula doesn’t have a fully disclosed ingredients label and is just one big proprietary blend completely ruins the product for me.

However, at such a low cost, I do see why low-budget shoppers might find this formula useful and attractive.

If you’re just looking for a potential boost of super reds daily, it might be a good product to have in the house, since it’s sold at such a low cost.
