Established in 2012, BioTrust is a nutritional supplements provider based in Aurora, Colorado that specializes in natural, high-quality ingredients that supply just the right dose.

The company’s mission is to help empower men and women through proper nutrition and decreased body fat, which will ultimately transform their health. BioTrust also helps contribute nutritious food, clean water, and proper medical services to families in need through their charitable mission, which donates a portion of every dollar received to these causes.
Co-founders Josh Bezoni and Joel Marion, who are avid users of nutritional supplements, discovered that many natural products in the marketplace do not contain nearly as much of an active ingredient as advertised on the label. Many consumers likely assume that all nutritional products are closely regulated and approved by the FDA, but which is not always the case. The BioTrust website uses the following as an example: “A product may claim 100 mg of an exotic fat-burning ingredient while containing only 20 mg, or in many cases, none at all.” The company believes that most other nutritional supplement companies operate under shady business practices, and are only out to make a quick buck by scamming unsuspecting customers.
In response to this, BioTrust was created to provide the highest quality, most genuine nutritional supplements available on the market. BioTrust claims all of their products are completely free of hormones, antibiotics, and other artificial ingredients, and work by providing just the right “scientific dose” for each essential ingredient. The company guarantees that all products contain the exact dose as listed on the packaging, and their “7-Stage Research and Testing Protocol” ensures this through:
- World class formulators
- Using only the scientific dose
- All-natural raw ingredients
- Raw ingredient testing
- FDA-registered manufacturing
- Third-party quality assurance testing
- Scientific Advisory Board review

I have been using BioTrust Low Carb for few months now and I love it. I LOVE THE TASTE - Chocolate is the best tasting shake out there, hands down! I believe BioTrust low carb contributed greatly to my successful weight loss - I have dropped 17 pounds in 3 months and gained muscle and strength. If you are looking for a protein shake that taste awesome and doesn't make you bloated like most protein shakes do, you should try it. You will love the taste and you will love the results.
Biotrust-website is NOT user friendly
Can't say I would or would not recommend this product because I got so disgusted with what happened at checkout that I cancelled my order. I agree with other reviewers that products showed up in my cart without even realizing until I saw double the charge that I expected with a "thank you". I called to cancel and again I agree with other reviewers that there are pushy sales people on the other end and so I reorder but this time after I gave my credit card my total was close to the online scam with half the amount of bottles! The sales person made a fast sale and then I questioned why it was so expensive because I saw better deals online. His response was the more you order the price goes down. So I accepted that answer and got off the phone feeling embarrassed to question any further and figured I will give the products a try UNTIL I started reading other reviews and realized I shouldn't feel embarrassed but rather stupid for falling for this scam! I called customer service and cancelled all orders because I just don't trust this company. I gave my advice that their checkout process is not user friendly and I do plenty of online shopping and NEVER had this happen! It would be like ordering a pair of pants and the shop just adding a top and accessories because they think it will work together! Absolutely ridiculous. If they are a reputable they will "clean up" their checkout process and make is user friendly. BE CAUTIOUS.
Simply try it, they will help you! It works in different ways according to individual body chemistry. Some products will take longer to give great results like myself; slow and steady improvement with Colitis.
Research and ask questions. Become an educated buyer.
I am halfway into my 3rd bottle of IC-5. Last time I posted I had just about finished my second bottle and had dropped from 187.5 to 176. I have gone down to 173 for a few days and thought I had peaked my weight loss. Today I'm at. 173.5. for the last week. I haven' t changed my eating routine or exercise. It may be that magic pill I hoped for. Will post again in a week.
I ordered my first BioTrust products in June/14. Like so many others, I was seeking help to lose weight... again. The same 25 pounds that I had lost and regained a few times over.
I received an email regarding informative articles and information on the BioTrust products and as a professional dieter over the years, I was interested. I needed to know more and happily went online and researched threads before I officially joined the forum. I was excited reading the positive feedback from the forum members, on their collective successes! I placed an order... yipppeeee
If you are thinking magic bullet, there is none. We know that...right!! BioTrust products are pricey compared to some others but you get what you pay for and yes, the idea is to sell product.
News flash people... it is a business but one that I believe in 100%. A business with a heart and soul too and that became apparent as I spent more time on the BioTrust forum.

I selected the BioTrust "One Day Diet", which implements the use of intermittent fasting while using two low carb protein shakes and a healthy meal each day. The shake recipes are awesome, all 53 fat burning smoothie recipes. If you want choice, we got choice lol. The low carb protein powder tastes awesome and keeps you full for hours. Read the science behind the product, top quality as is the complete product line. I had great success with the ODD and went on to another BioTrust diet plan after a few weeks, which I loved also. A plan for every lifestyle, made simple and easy to follow and to stay with the program. I do not weigh myself any more but I know by my clothes and so many years of dieting, how much weight I have lost and it's about 26 pounds or so since July. How awesome is that! I am doing my happy dance lol.
The great thing about our BioTrust community, is the support from coaches and fellow members. So many of us that decide to make healthier lifestyle choices, don't have support. Staying true, keeping the motivation going...that "stick to it ness" lol. At BioTrust you have a cheering section that will keep you accountable to yourself and others. When you slip up...We have your back! so you can get on track quickly. All this for FREE! Our coaches ask the hard questions, got to love them! We all do love them Coach Tim, Head Nutrition & Exercise Specialist. Coach Brian, Stefanie, Cristina. Our coaches know their stuff. They care and it shows! They ask the hard questions to get us thinking, but my head hurts when I do that coach lol. Seriously, so many of us need to really examine our relationships with food and why we do what we do. It's a good thing! I know that I am not going to gain that 25 pounds again. Since joining BioTrust, I have so many more tools in my arsenal.
Ohhhhh I forgot the bars and cookies....I have those in my tool box also...healthful, awesome cookies, when I need a treat or on the go. The meal replacement protein bars are so ridiculously good lol.
You can't fail with all this power behind you. As you go along on your transformation journey, there is often this light bulb moment of discovery. It's when the whole process makes sense and you just relax and go with the flow. You know in your heart, you are going to get there but you can relax and smell the flowers along the way. You don't need to obsess over food and when your next meal is coming. Choose healthfully, to feed your body and mind.
Enjoy how your body feels and responds to the nutrient dense foods and supplements. You will find that you learn so much about yourself and your relationship with food.
Be mindful....enjoy your transformation journey... I am amazed every day I log on to BioTrust!
Yes, I do love BioTrust and I hope you try the products and check out our forum you will be amazed!!
Too much up-selling and total crap! I'm stuck with $200 of crap!
I just ordered 3 bottles of Leptiburn form Biotrust and they tagged on another 3 bottles worth $100 without my knowledge. Now I can't stop the order and can't get in contact with customer service. So far not impressed.
Trust in BioTrust for your Health
Sept 2013 is when I discovered how well BioTrust products work.
My Dr's weren't helping me except to cover up my symptoms with more toxic prescriptions that weren't working. I then had to listen to my body, and to those who have been where I've been: FAT and Unhappy. I came across BioTrust with all the research I was doing, and more natural products that could get rid of a lot of my problems.
Inflammation, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Obesity, and a lot of pain mentally & physically. I started my health regime with Low Carb, then went onto Lepti-burn, Pro X10, Protein Bars, Cookies, Omega Dessert, Omega Krill 5X, BCAA Matrix Belly Trim XP, IC5, & AbsorbMax.
I found I couldn't take Leptiburn because of my high BP, and inflammation, so BioTrust swapped it for the BellyTrim XP which I still take today. I live by BioTrust products, Today I use EVERYDAY... Bellytrim XP, Omega Krill 5X, BCAA Matrix, - every month. I get Pro X10, Protein Bars, & Cookies every so often. Pro X10 keeps my digestive tract healthy, and like to do a cleanse every couple of months with it.
BioTrust is ALWAYS there for you. If you ever have a question I depend on my personal coach to help me, or even anyone whose in this with me at the Forum. I'm not someone who has 15 lbs to lose. I'm one who has a significant amount of weight to lose, and the experts from BioTrust have helped me get healthy enough to workout Mon-Fri and on the road to success some day. I have a long way to go, but between my Trust in BioTrust & the results I've seen in the last year & from my health screening ** Perfect Cholesterol ** weight is down from last years screening 40 lbs to date, and still working on the inflammation & BP, but with Omega Krill 5X the inflammation is a lot better than it ever was. BellyTrim XP has worked on my belly fat & my weight along with the continued help & advise from my health coach my goal for next year will be a reality I know it can be yours too when you Trust in BioTrust Millions of us can't be wrong.
I've read through many of these reviews and notice that a recurring theme is dissatisfaction over the upselling, the lengthy videos, and the volume of emails you get. --I'm not going to lie, I don't like to sit through the videos, and sometimes it can be annoying to receive so many emails. I am usually not susceptible to upselling, and it's fairly easy to simply click the "no thanks" link.
The important questions are: Does BioTrust provide a quality product? Do their products work as intended? When an issue arises, does the BioTrust team respond timely and do their best to correct any perceived wrongdoings?
Based on my personal experience, the answers to all of the above are YES. I researched the company for a long time before I ordered anything because I am super paranoid about being scammed; and yeah, I did find that they had a few BBB complaints and I was able to find a few negative reviews. But when I actually read the complaints, they were about things like shipping or trying to return their product and somehow thinking they were told they couldn't. The complaints had nothing to do with the products themselves or their safety or effectiveness.
In every single complaint I found on the BBB, and in most of the negative reviews I have been able to find, BioTrust has gone out of their way to honor their promises, try to make customers happy, answer questions, respond to concerns, and correct any misinformation. It isn't BioTrust's fault if some people simply can't be pleased - goodness knows they are doing everything they possibly can.
Specific to the product I have tried - LeptiBurn - I really like it a lot. It doesn't make me feel jittery or tweaked- out, in fact it doesn't really make me "feel" anything. What it DOES do is help signal to me when I have eaten enough - that feeling of satiety that is supposed to keep us from stuffing our faces until we can't move. Without good nutrition and regular physical activity, you probably aren't going to lose any weight. But if you are restricting calories and don't want your body going into "starvation mode," where it hoards calories and causes your weight loss to plateau, this is an excellent supplement in my opinion. My portion sizes are much smaller now - not because I am restricting myself, but because I am simply more aware that I'm not hungry anymore.
Not only that, but anytime I've had a question (of which I have had many!), I get an answer usually the same day from someone who is friendly and seems to care that I am giving them my business.
I really like this company a lot - thank goodness and I also really like their products!
I got some Pro 10X from a friend. It seemed to work, probably due to the placebo effect. My big mistake was ordering some.
I began receiving voluminous emails including multiple last-chance emails. Ok stupid, you might think, just hit the unsubscribe button. Well as it turns out I'm not stupid. I have unsubscribed three times following the link in Bioterror excuse me Biotrust emails and waited the requisite amount of time. The emails keep flooding in.
Any marginal benefit from PRO 10X has been undone by the stress of dealing with "Joel and Josh'" violation of anti- spamming policies
I find the entire opus operands of the company insulting to the public intelligence. I'm sure there are many desperate & unhappy souls out thee so needy they will try anything. However, when one subscribes to this, you will receive a constant barrage of several sales pitches daily from different " experts " all purporting that THEIR supplement fix is the only answer and that all others are useless and don't work at all. The irony is that the pitch "Today" refutes and contradicts the one from their own Company "experts" you received the day before. Each Expensive product is trumpeted as the only one you'll ever need. If you purchased all of the pills pitched at you, the final total cost would be enormous.
To insist that "they" are not interested in sales and profits and only in your personal health & welfare is insulting to the intelligence. After spending extra money for a couple of their initial "only thing ever needed" products, I wrote BioTRUST to complain & to ask where were the physical exercise routines they had "hinted" at were to be sent, as this was my initial reason for joining. They apologized at what they felt was MY misconception of what they were all about & said they were only Nutrition based.
My follow up letters were ignored (after redirecting me to a different Email "support group") and I get "undeliverable" notices instead. I feel that I was misled
