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. BioTrust founders Josh Bezoni and Joel Marion are best-selling authors, whose books and multiple television appearances have helped countless people around the world lose weight and stay healthy.

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 was diagnosed with Leukemia 4 years ago and have had ongoing fatigue and anemia. I have tried eating right and exercising, but it was very difficult. I do not like to put unwanted chemicals in my body. It's bad enough that I have to take chemo everyday so when I came across BioTrust products I had to try. I ordered the Protein Powders and the IC-5 and went on the One Day Diet.
I have since had more energy and stamina than in the last 4 years! I have lost 20 lbs. to boot, which I was not my goal but my husband is happy. He said I am like a new person. I will continue using these products and if you are in the same situation as I am you will not regret it
I highly recommend BioTrust products. Not only are the products top-notch the customer service is fabulous.
I have used almost all of the products but I really, really love the LeptiBurn. I've been using it for months. The first 3 months I used it I lost 30 pounds and never hit a plateau. It has a slight energy boost from the green tea that I really like, not too much though so I'm not jittery.
The Low Carb Protein Powder tastes amazing and it really blends nicely. I typically have it with coconut milk and just use a mason jar to shake it up with, no special shaker required. The chocolate is thick and rich.
ProX10 is another daily for me, love my probiotics. Keeps things in balance and my skin behaves so much better when I'm taking it. Added bonus - no refrigeration required.
Incidentally I was the 1st Runner up in their Transformation Contest and I'm a very real person with very real results. FYI: It takes more than nutritional supplements to get a killer body. Diet and exercise is also key. I used all three to get to where I am now.
Great service and honest about ingredients
I write this review to provide an honest account of my experiences with BioTrust. I have used most all of their products. I have had great success with every one of the products that I've used. I dropped 20 pounds of fat in 12 weeks as a result of using their products. Four months later, it's still off! My favorite is the low carb vanilla protein powder. I enjoy a protein cookie or a protein bar for snacks throughout the day. Their Leptin product really rocked my fat percentage.
I have interacted with their customer service personnel and they make you feel as though you are the CEO of the company they work for. I realize that some of the products are expensive to some people. However, I look at my health as I do my retirement savings. What I do now, will greatly impact how I live when I retire.
If you sacrifice a bit so you can save for a 401K now, you'll benefit financially when you're older. If you pay a little more now for all-natural ingredients that have been tested and verified to contain what they say they do (unlike some other companies) you'll reap the health benefits later in life. Look up how much operations cost for knee replacements, diabetes complications, heart stents, etc. and perhaps you'll see the cost of healthy foods in a different light. If you're looking for a Dairy Queen shake, a Hershey's candy bar or a frosted sugar cookie, this isn't the company for you. Their similar products are quite tasty to me personally but yet they have no sugar like all of the aforementioned products.
I have tried numerous supplement companies and their products. I've chosen to stick with BioTrust due to their research involved, their honesty and the great training advice I've received on their free forum board. I've also received free shipping, just like they advertise. I give this company two thumbs up! If you don't like a product, they have a full year money back guarantee.
I've even read comments from their head nutrition and exercise coach and CEO on this forum offering to rectify any errors. That's impressive!
BioTrust Products DO Work!
I don't know how anyone can say anything negative to say about BioTrust, because I will now share my real experience with them AND their products.
I was looking at all the different digestive enzymes available on the market, because I have candida.
When you have candida you NEED a digestive enzyme and the one from BioTrust, basically has all the stuff in the Absorbmax digestive enzyme, to do just that.
When I first tried it, after a few days I started to get back symptoms of candida along the lines of: white coating on tongue and a bad smelling rash.
At first I thought it was the digestive enzyme, because digestive enzymes are mostly fungus based, but this is NOT a fungus that contributes to, or makes candida worse.
It turned out that it was what I was eating, that was bringing back my symptoms.
I know this to be true, because I tried the enzyme for two weeks, while also NOT eating or drinking things that I was not meant to and I didn't get any candida symptoms.
I had accidentally accused BioTrusts digestive enzyme of making my candida worse and even told them so.
So, they didn't know what to say and said that they were perplexed about my situation and offered me the 100% money back guarantee.
Instead of taking the money, they said that I could take the same number of bottles of the krill oil that they also produce, in exchange for the digestive enzymes that I thought did not work.
It was my bad, but they went on ahead with their money back guarantee and I was sent the krill oil that I had expressed an interest in.
So, I am quite confused as to where these comments of "Biotrust didnt gIVE mE MaH moNEY bAK!!1" are coming from, because they treated me in the best manner possible!
These comments are clearly coming from other supplement companies, who want to destroy BioTrusts reputation.
I say that ANYONE who has doubts about BioTrusts products, to just go ahead and try out some of their protein cookies or whatever.
If you are not completely satisfied with the taste, quality, the damn font or something, then just ask for a refund and they will give it to you....
How are you going to lose out, in a service like this?
Am I missing something here?
I totally and truly trust BioTrust and I am a customer for life.
Into 2nd week and doing really good
I am a retired mother of 3, grandmother of 6 and great grandmother of 3 and in my 60's. I have tried countless weight loss products and services only to fail and feel defeated. I am now following the Bio Trust plan. I am using Lepti Burn, IC-5, Omega Krill5X and Low Carb Time-Released Protein Blend. I am into my 2nd week and have lost 4 pounds but what makes me even happier is how my clothes are fitting; I am losing inches as well. I have 2 milkshakes a day and either a good lunch or dinner and I never feel hungry. I know that with this program I will succeed.
I tried this product even after being bored half to death by the overlong advert. It didn't work. I stuck to a lowfat diet, took the pills AND took more exercise but no good.,
What a scam! Not only was it hard to buy the product (as described in other reviews) but the company doesn't care when things go wrong.
Don't fall for this scam!
As you know, I'm on the other end of the world : )) But at the same time have no problems with order, payment or delivery, as this write up.
So listen to the one who used it - I lost 67 pounds. And this is the result of production and support Biotrust. And this would not have happened if I did not feel that they really want to help me. We were united by invisible ties, one purpose - to achieve results. And I got it. You're not just a protein bar (or any other) - you get a community of like- minded, who know how to help you and are willing to do it for you. Biotrust - it is not for those looking for where tastier. Biotrust for those - who wants to change! They give the best. If I can - and so can you. Good luck to you!
Bio Trust is a superior company with research and product descriptions to back their products up. A lot of bad reviews on the site are just based on their poor and ineffective opinions, and not about what the products really offer. I love Bio Trust because not just of the awesome taste, but the ingredients and dosages to give a complete nutritional package. I am currently completing the 12 week body transformation, and with the overall knowledge and products available from Bio Trust, I am seeing miraculous results.
I suffered a massive traumatic brain injury, and using Bio Trust information and products will bring unfathomable outcomes to myself, and to others.
Okay product but not worth the money
As many others have mentioned, there are tons of advertisements and up-sales as you try to check out. I've also been directed to their website from lots of other 'health' websites, which interestingly enough all use the exact same formats of emails, advertisement videos, and advice, and all swear by biotrust. Hmm.... sounds to me like one big giant ploy to get people to buy their product. I went ahead and gave it a try though, because they boast great tasting low carb all natural protein shakes and what not.
As far as taste goes, definitely not the best tasting protein shake by a long shot. Very gritty and has a weird after taste. And at 42 dollars per bottle plus shipping (if you order a min. of 3 bottles), you are much better off spending less than 30 dollars for a bottle twice the size of EAS, which is what I had been using in the past. Looking at the nutrition facts and ingredients, they are almost the same. Plus, EAS tastes way better in my opinion. So, I'd rather save the money in the future (and avoid the annoying ads and emails) and just buy that from the local grocery.
MY HONEST REVIEW OF BIO TRUST PRODUCTS & SUPPORT TEAMS
Thank you for the opportunity of reviewing Bio-Trust Nutrition products and their support teams. I am a retired Banker, aged 70, from the UK. I had 40 years experience in Business & Commerce, writing many reports and reviews on many businesses.
I am overweight, with elevated blood pressure and border-line Diabetes. Through an excellent weight loss Plan for Life, I have lost weight (28 lbs) but more importantly, from that plan learned the importance of controlling your bodies Leptin and Insulin. Leptin is the signal your body sends to your brain, that you are replete and no need to keep eating. Insulin obviously controls your blood sugar levels and the effects of not doing so, are very well known.
Although the diet starts to address that imbalance, the creator of that plan highly recommended using Bio-Trust products – Leptiburn (does what is says on the tin) and IC-5 for reducing Insulin resistance. These have greatly boosted the effects as well as encouraging my body to burn fat not sugar.
I had cause to contact the Bio Trust Customer Service Team to help track my products to the UK. I remembered reading somewhere, that their service reputation was second to none. A label they truly deserve. My interaction with the Bio Trust Forum team was a totally unexpected, but huge bonus, In the past, I have never felt inclined to become a member of a Forum, but count my blessings I joined this one. Not only is it good to interact with fellow dieters and sufferers, but the genuine and heartfelt advice from the Forum Team, is inspirational, informed and they are totally dedicated to helping their members achieving their health goals.
My commitment to my diet plan is for life, as it is to Bio- Trust and the Forum.
BioTrust's Products Are Top-Notch
I own 6 or 7 of their products and they seriously rock! They might be a bit more pricey compared to the average but I feel better than ever and seeing great results from my workout sessions. They are highly recommended.
One thing to keep in mind - these supplements are great for enjoying a higher life quality but they are NOT magic pills (such a thing doesn't exist anyway). If you are not determined to follow up on a well-planned diet and exercise routine then your results will be compromised.
Nevertheless, the Biotrust forum is a great place to find more information on health & fitness, and the coaches there are doing a fantastic job of providing value. Even if you are not a customer, do yourself a favour and check their forum out!
Best (supplement) company
I' m a huge fan of biotrust products. I'm using IC-5, protein powder, protein bars and BCAA's and I'm more than happy with my results (have used them for both fat loss and muscle building phases). Something I also look for when it comes to supplementation: What do industry leaders say about them? Tons of really good and awesome coaches use and recommend Biotrust products.
Besides having awesome products they also have THE BEST customer service I have ever experienced in my life. Be it advice on training, be it taken care of when you have questions on a shipment, etc.
I'll retell two stories about customer support: They sent me the wrong product (3 bottles of IC-5 instead of Leptiburn)... so what did they do? They told me to keep the 3 wrong bottles and they sent me the 3 right ones free of charge.
Oh and this btw was the only time I ever had a problem with any order. Yes they simply rock.
Second story: I'm emailing back and forth with their lead coach for a few months now and about 90% of the time it's not about biotrust products and if it is about biotrust products it's because I bring it up. He advises me on all sorts of workout stuff, etc.
They are awesome and have made my life better. What more is there to ask for?
I ran across this site while looking for nutrients to help regulate blood sugar. Marketing and advertizing were sketchy even from the beginning. I had to put my email address in to get the info I wanted and then started receiving multiple advertising emails. I decided to give them a try and order IC-5. After you place the initial order there are 4-5 pages of up-sells trying to get you to buy more products and offering you discounts if you buy more volume. The high pressure advertizing and shady marketing were very annoying and made me lose any confidence in their products.
An Honest Review from My Heart
As an extremely satisfied customer of BioTrust, I would like to touch on a few points. First of all, BioTrust's Customer Service is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure to do business with. I have ordered product both online and through their 1-800 support number, and have gotten exactly what I have wanted without any issues. I happen to enjoy speaking with the Customer Service representatives, as they are all very knowledgeable about the products and are consistently helpful when I speak with them directly.
Secondly, BioTrust's products are without a doubt, very helpful to me during my quest to lose 138 pounds. I have lost a total of 71 pounds in 7 months' time with the help of LeptiBurn, IC-5, AbsorbMax, Pro-X10, and BioTrust Low Carb protein powder. I have recently added BioTrust's OmegaDessert Fish Oil supplement and look forward to continued weight loss success. I believe wholeheartedly in the all natural, healthy BioTrust supplements, and highly encourage my friends and family to use them also. I have used two of BioTrust's approved weight loss plans, the 3 Week Diet and the One Day Diet, in helping me to achieve my substantial weight loss. While using the online forums, I have learned from two highly qualified nutrition and exercise specialists, how to select wholesome foods for my nutrition, and how to exercise the proper way in order to maximize my fat loss results. I always recommend BioTrust Nutrition supplements to people I meet who are sincere in their efforts to lose weight or add muscle. I have not as of yet used the BCAA Matrix, but will be supplementing with it soon.
Lastly, I enjoy the chocolate and vanilla cream Low Carb protein powders in my daily shakes, the Chocolate Chip and Frosted Oatmeal Raisin protein cookies for dessert, and the Organic Protein Bars as an occasional meal supplement. I sincerely hope that others will be as successful as I have been in losing weight while using the wonderful BioTrust Nutrition supplements.
Superior Service and Product
Several months ago, I stumbled upon BioTrust while looking for a great tasting protein powder that was also high quality, and I found it! The Low-carb Time-Released Protein Blend is awesome! I have tried both the vanilla and chocolate, and they are far better tasting than any other product I have tried. Not only that, I look forward to having a smoothie (that is how good they taste)! They even sent me a book with 53 recipes for smoothies, so you don't have to just have a plain vanilla or plain chocolate smoothie. I am not sure how long they will be giving that away for free, so get on it people!
I also recently had a question/request from the company and called the customer service. I know what you're thinking.. "uh oh.." NOPE! They were AWESOME! Not only was he friendly, but the customer service representative worked so hard and so quickly to help me out. I was expecting someone to just read from some script saying they couldn't help me, but that was not the case. In my opinion, BioTrust has incredible products with fantastic service. I would highly recommend them.
Great company, great products, phenomenal support
I was turned onto BioTrust by a cousin of mine who is a sports science/fitness/sports trainer for Rollins College here in Florida. He told me about a few of their products which he really liked...BCAA Matrix and the Low Carb Protein Powder. I went ahead and tried both, LOVE them. Whats best is that you can be confident that the ingredients in these products are the best...PERIOD! For those of you who buy your protein, BCAA's, fish oils, etc from the large chain shops (like I used to do) be sure you know what you are getting, I bet you'll be surprised if you really look into it. With BioTrust, you dont need to worry about that.
I am such a huge fan of BioTrusts products, but one of the main reasons I am such a loyal customer is b/c of the online support/forums. THESE GUYS KNOW THEIR STUFF. They will answer every question you have about the products, your personal nutrition, workout regiments, and just general fitness questions/concerns you may have (and attach articles and the science behind it to back it up).
Im not sure where the people in some of the negative reviews are coming from, or what their agenda is...but these guys have NEVER steered me wrong. The only time I ever had to 'return' something was b/c it didn't agree with my stomach...NOT b/c the product didn't work. I made one call to customer service and switched it out for a bottle of BCAA Matrix. No upcharge or anything...and they actually let me keep the bottle of the other product to give to someone else to try. The gentleman who mentioned that the protein bars "were the worst he's ever had"...thats probably b/c he usually buys the bars that are loaded with sugar and other 'crap' to make them taste like a candy bar. Its a protein bar, not a candy bar, and honestly, they are pretty damn good!!! The emails they send out are very informative and will actually educate you on a lot of different topics. Do they try and sell their products, of course, they are a business...but 1) they do not spam you, only a few emails here and there and i learn something new from every single email, and 2) I guarantee once you try a few of the products and take advantage of the knowledge on the online forums, you'll understand why this company and the products sell themselves. A+ company!!!
I played baseball for the University of Florida and was around some very knowledgeable fitness and nutrition staff while I was there...these BioTrust guys have given me so much more accurate information than I have ever rec'd in my life...has truly changed the way I go about my nutrition and fitness needs. Just try it!
Side note: The oatmeal raisin protein cookies are amazing!
Biotrust is an exptionally honest, knowledgable and caring/devoted team, with excellent products. They have guided me through thick and thin, with great coaching, and a lot of comforting moral support.
I spent most of my Life (59yrs) battling obesity, and since beginning my journey with BioTrust, success is finally mine. I give them partial credit too.
One year ago I began using one of their diets, combined with 5 of their products
Low Carb, IC-5, BCAA Matrix, LeptiBurn and ProX10. I've lost over 160lbs total - 75 since meeting one of their terrific coaches (Tim). He taught me how to get my metabolism back by eatting more/exercising even more. Although I am just maintaining my weight loss, BioTrust is still there for me - always ready, willing and able to help me.
Thanks to all of this, I no longer have Type-II diabetes or sleep apnea. I am able to walk without a cane and take frequent 5 mile walks...
I consulted my primary care physician prior to doing this - beginning the diet change and diet supplements and received his goahead. Today he is so enthusiastic re. this, that he shares the information with other patients who have similar problems (with my consent).
Although the prices on BioTrust are rather high, to me, they are worth every penny!! (My budget is fairly tight.) Customer service has also always been there for me, to place orders, make changes in existing orders, tracking and reshipping of an order that did not reach me...
My only negative remark is that I personally dislike the taste of the chocolate Low Carb, but never tried to return it. It's not that bad. I'm just picky.
This is an indirect thank you to BioTrust for everything! I plan to remain one of your many very satisfied customers, who uses your products indefinately.
I ordered what I thought were a selection of books on nutrition and was charged, then offered another item and then another until I ended up paying for four different items and have received absolutely nothing except a bombarding of e-mails with ridiculous content and sales pitches.
I feel an utter fool to have been taken in by this hard sell harrassment.
Don't order anything online as they don't cancel when you request. The bars are the worst tasting things I have ever tried - I threw one box away. When I tried to cancel, I got a quick response about my options for return but the order wasn't canceled. So, I now have another box I have to pay shipping for to return. I would never do business with this company again.
Be very careful placing an online order
I read about IC-5 in an email. I am a diabetic so I thought this would help sort my fluctuating blood sugar levels. I filled out the internet purchase order for 6 bottles totaling $294. When I clicked the page it came up with an offer to double my order. I then changed my mind and decided I did not want to order so I switched off. I thought I had not confirmed my order so I was OK. Later that night as I was going through my mail, I found a Biotrust receipt to say they had taken $294 from my credit card. I was furious as I had not said I confirm my order. They had my money and refused to return it. They would not cancel my order which was not even dispatched. I now have to wait till my order arrives in UK and then return the goods to USA. I will see if they refund my money in full or not.
