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

Biotrust-Excellent in a variety of WAYS
I was fortunate enough to stumble upon the Biotrust community and protein back in April and it has ultimately changed my view on how health and fitness should be approached.
Let me first start by stating the health and wellness industry has been part of my lifestyle and career for the last 15 years. I've owned an independent pharmacy that wanted to improve the outcomes of all of our patients and a main component is proper nutrition and supplementation. So I have done extensive research in vitamin manufacturing processes and companies to make sure the efficacy is up to a standard that I thought would provide my customers with REAL results. I understand the protein and sport supplement industry and all companies are not created equal. I have tried, studied, and researched proteins as well. Enough about my past.
So, of course I was interested in the Biotrust Protein. i want THE very best supplements going into my body. I work my butt off in the gym and i want to feed my body with the best, so it can grow and maintain optimum health. This is what drew me to Biotrust's protein. They use absolutely the highest grade proteins without GMO's and the taste is truly off the charts. I make ice cream at night out of it and it's ridiculous. Not only do they use the highest grade, they use the perfect combination of the most scientifically bio- available protein. The cost is more than the standard protein, but that's what happens when you use the best ingredients and don't cut corners.
What sets Biotrust apart is the community forum. There you have access to the absolute best nutrition coaches as well as active, positive members that are striving to be the best they can be. The wealth of information you get from this forum is well worth paying a little extra for the BEST protein available.
I would suggest anybody that is interested from novice to expert take a look at the forum and try the supplements, it will change the way you look at an industry that is dogmatic in it's approaches as they all want to sell you the newest and greatest thing. Biotrust approaches each member as an individual and sets programs and nutritional advice to the person and their goals.
My sister has been doing the One Day Diet and she has lost 30 lbs in 3 months. She is more positive, more productive at work, and happier. She has accomplished it on her own, but the ground work guidance, and support came from BT.
Today is September 1st, 2014. Yesterday I ordered six bottles of one of their products and 1 bottle of one of the others. Why? I guess because I'm dumb and stupid believing all this crap and acting impulsively. I have to confess though that they are really good at making you buy all kinds of stuff you really don't want. Long story short, I called today (a federal holiday,) less than 24 hour after my purchase to cancel the order and was told it had been shipped, but they could not provide a FedEx tracking number. I waited on the phone for 40 minutes while a rep kept going back and forth between a supposed supervisor and myself because she could not explain why they don't have a tracking number for an order they supposedly shipped. It was obviously a lie. They gave an RMA and told me I had to ship it back to them for my refund, at my own expense. After negotiating for another 30 minutes the rep promised to return half of my money today and the rest when they get the package of products that were never shipped back to their warehouse, God only knows when.
I will file a complaint with Visa, my bank, FedEx, the FTC and whoever else is out there to protect the public from abusive business practices such as those exhibited by Biotrust.
Terrible Experience, Horrible Ordering Process
I was interested in learning about BioTrust's fish oil product. I sat through a 30 minute video that tested my patience. I ordered 6 bottles of their fish oil product. Then, I was taken through multiple screens trying to sell me products I didn't want. I placed my order. I get an email receipt showing they were going send me a product I never ordered and no fish oil. I called and cancelled the order. Biotrust, thanks for wasting an hour of my time. I'll never do business with you.
GREAT products! GREAT Customer Service!!
I just happened upon the site doing internet searches and found BioTrust. Awesome products - I love the vanilla protein powder and PurBiotics and Krill.
The customer service is outstanding, I have returned products, no questions asked - they told me to keep the bottle and sent me something else. I will be a forever customer, as long as I can keep affording them - pricing is a bit expensive but the quality is unsurpassed and I totally trust BioTrust.
Once my thyroid issues are handled I am going to do the one day diet plan - my son keeps wanting me to do smoothies with him and work out with him!
Thank you BioTrust for giving me quality products and outstanding customer service when I need it!
As a health professional,Physiotherapist and Pilates Instructor , I am so pleased to highly recommend Bio- Trust as a company.
From my own experience the supplements are of superior quality and value in addition with the expert backing from a highly qualified and knowledgeable Team to assist in every step of the way.
The One Day Diet has been a personal breakthrough in overcoming a longstanding weight loss plateau while still being able to train in a fasted state without losing energy.
The results have been amazing with a goal to return to teaching Pilates after an extended break from work after injury.
For anyone wanting to also turn around a negative into a positive I would say trust Bio-Trust.
A Complete Review of the BioTrust Line
A little bio on me: I'm no stranger to working out. I've was a competitive bodybuilder and powerlifter for well over a decade. And I have run a successful personal training company since 1994. Although I do see the merit in quality supplements, I am more jaded than not with what is out there. Here are my thoughts on BioTrust...
1) The Low Carb Protein may be the best protein powder on the market. The quality is second to none. I was hesitant when it first came out because A) it seemed expensive and b) I was jaded. Once I tried it, I was hooked. After that, I found out there are so many ways to save money that it doesn't seem so expensive anymore. Plus, you get what you pay for! My experience with the Low Carb made me want to try the whole product line. Here is my experience one by one...
2) Leptiburn - Quality product. But not a magic bullet. If you aren't eating right, don't expect to walk away ripped. There are NO magic pills!
3) IC5 - Again, it's ok. I'm not a huge carb ingester, so this product isn't really made for me. Again...no magic pills!
4) ProX10 - EXCELLENT! It's rare I can say I "notice" a probiotic having an effect. This one is different. Highly recommend this product for gut health (which effect EVERYTHING!)
5) Cookies and Bars - High quality. But I like to keep these down to a treat...and at most, one per day. They are loaded with fiber, so it can play havoc on digestion if you aren't careful.
6) Omega Dessert - Love this product. The American Diet is so overloaded with Omega 6's, it's nice to have a high grade Omega 3 product that makes it easy to get in daily.
7) BCAA Matrix - Great branched chain amino product. Recommend it for anyone who is into maximizing lean muscle, or if you are someone who is into intermittent fasting.
8) Absorb Max - I think it's good. Although I didn't feel an "effect" like I did with the probiotic. I do like to take this when I'm eating something higher in dairy or gluten (which is not frequent at all).
9) Omega Krill 5X - A MUST product! Probably thee best fish oil in a capsule product I've ever taken.
That's my full assessment. If there are "musts" on my list, its the Low Carb and Omega Krill. The Probiotic isn't far behind. Biotrust has a CLA product coming out soon that I'm really excited about! I'll put up another review when I get to experience that.
Hope you find this helpful.
Biotrust in the real deal
Love these products, love this company. IT WORKS!!!!! I have lost 19 inches, and over 10 lbs. I didn't need to lose a lot, but am at that age where it is really hard to lose, especially those last 10-15 lbs. My body is totally reshaped and I feel great.
Notice my hair is stronger, and a patch of eczema I had for over a year "suddenly" cleared up. Not sure if those are related, but wouldn't be surprised. I did the 21 day diet, but am making it more of a lifestyle. If you do the program, eat and exercise like they tell you to, you will lose the weight.
I only had to exercise 18 minutes, and saw incredible results the way they taught me to do it. Getting their products, and using their system is the best thing I have ever done for my health.
Not only that, the company is great to deal with- great service, great products (I am very holistic), and they support things like the make-a-wish foundation. In a day where most people are out to make a quick buck, this company really seems to care about people, and help them achieve their best health. I have become a lifelong customer because of the results I have achieved.
Try it- they offer a money back guarantee- but if you do the program, you will definitely succeed!
When I first saw an online link to "the one-day diet", I thought to myself, what the heck is this? So I checked it out and began a whole new journey into a world of weight loss I've never achieved before. Nobody at BioTrust is paying me to say this: this is far and away the greatest thing to happen to me in years! I have failed miserably on multiple diet programs.
Not with BioTrust. Let me explain the 1 day diet premise. Drink fantastic homemade smoothies and enjoy a sensible dinner for 6 days, then on day 7 you have your 1 day to cheat, in fact, you're encouraged to cheat! I've been using BioTrust protein powder in my smoothies for 3 months and have lost 18 lbs! And what's amazing to me is I actually love eating like this. I don't miss the carbs and sugars I thought I couldn't live with out. I don't even want them! The only thing you have to buy from BioTrust is their protein powder.
They have other great products, too, but you're not pressured into buying anything else. Get the protein powder from them, buy your own almond milk, fresh fruits and veggies and you're good to go. Listen to this: I LOVE pumpkin pie. I could eat a whole pie in one sitting! How about a pumpkin pie smoothie that tastes exactly like pumpkin pie? I'm serious. All it takes is unsweetened almond milk, BioTrust vanilla protein powder, canned pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spices and stevia for a little more sweetness (but it isn't even necessary). Fantastic! I create all my smoothies in the Magic Bullet and it's easy as can be. BioTrust has over 60 smoothie recipes to choose from (immediate free download after you buy some protein powder) which are incredible.
Sometimes I don't even want REAL FOOD for dinner, just another smoothie. This program has changed my life. I've had knee replacement surgery and the best pain relief has come from taking off those 18 pounds - less pressure on my knees! I feel great and look better and younger than I have in years. This program works, people, so if you have any doubts, forget about them and give this a try. The only thing you're going to lose is weight. Oh, by the way - I am not an exerciser, in fact I hate exercising. I'm not promoting being a sloth, but if I can lose 18 lbs without exercising, imagine what I can lose if I did! You will not be sorry if you give this a try.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the great people at BioTrust, not only for their fantastic products but also for their daily counseling, tips and recipe ideas. They don't abandon you after your first purchase. They are your life support team. It's the best!
I've been using the 1-Day Diet plan for 4 weeks and have lost 14 lbs and feel great. Not hungry, no shakes and no headaches. Love it and I have more to lose and this is the first product that has shown results, so I should reach my goal.
You can Trust.........BioTrust!
I actually came across your site last year...purely by accident!
I received an email by Joel and Josh. Then I saw their power point ....fun to watch and very creative!
They had me glued the whole time! I learned quite a bit about what we need to help us function. When they were speaking about all these ingredients that help you...I was trying to keep up by writing down all the things to take...but...at the end...they finally said all the ingredients were combined in these 2 products! So..after having writers cramp...I thought......damn! I put down the pen and said ...I don't need to write anything or buy these things individually...but just purchase your products! Duh!!!
Well there ya go!
I ordered the LeptiBurn and IC-5. Due to a very sensitive digestive system...I did not do the renewal order without trying anything. But...I had NO issues with these 2 products. So..I have reordered them. Love these products and get great results!!!!
I have tried the Omegas (lemon) and loved it! I have used other similar liquid omegas..but really enjoy yours..yummy!
I have had some liquid omegas that were rancid and it was creepy!
Someone pointed out to me that if liquid products are shipped during the summer..then there could be an issue with good refrigeration while being shipped. That makes a lot of sense.
Most of the time I purchase omegas in the winter. But I trust your products.
I previously ordered some AbsorbMax ..but this bothered my stomach. I'm not sure which ingredient (or ingredients) exactly bothered me....but I could not use this product. I knew it was me and not the product. So...when I called your company to see how to return the product...I was blown away when I was told keep the bottle or just give it to someone and y'all said you'd give me something I could use in exchange for that product. Whoa..very cool! So..got another IC-5. I gave that AbsorbMax to friend and she had good results and loved the product.
That just leads into how I feel about your customer service! The Best!! Have to say..this is one of the best service groups I've come across! Your folks are a great group!
Very professional...friendly and really go out of their way to help you..and that is from the minute they answer the phone until the last thing they say! Just a joy when calling!
Your 1 year return policy also sold me on the validity of your company!
Very smart on your part as well! Makes your company very rare...but so solid!
I eat very clean...and been into fitness for years (and at 63 feel the best ever!)....but still love the results of these products! I take 2 of each product early am and then 2 more mid day. Never any over stimulated feeling...but know they are working like they are suppose to be working!
Well ok (confession time).....every once in awhile I do eat a bit more carbs at nite (still healthy ones...for the most part! :o))
So I do take 2 more IC-5 before I eat those extra carbs!
But even without this extra dosage...they still work great from what I took earlier in the day!
Just retired after 27 years as a Probation Officer in Dallas/Ft Worth (but been in this business since 1979..can't make this stuff up!) :o)
So with retirement...I'm able to go to the gym early in the am (no more peak times..yea!)..and/or jog/jump on these boots (called Kangoo Jumps) for about 3 hours...outside in good weather..(NOT the Texas triple digits!) :o)
Thus.. these product have helped with my fitness level as well!
Ya know...I recently received the email with "SORRY30". That was very cool how sorry Joel felt that we may have missed ordering products..and offered that great 30% discount. I don't want to see him sad!!!! :o(
So...I took advantage of this great offer and bought more LeptiBurn and IC-5 (bundle pack). When I ordered it over the phone...I told the rep that any time that Joel feels really..really sorry for us or even devastated........he can do a SORRY40 or SORRY50..etc!!! :o)
I also love the continuous emails with great fitness information! You can learn something new all the time and I appreciate that so much!
Again...I cannot say enough about this company!
Thank you for really taking to heart what it means to share your knowledge with others! Has made a difference for me!
I eat twice a day and healthy. I limit carbs to begin with. I also exercise 4 to 5 times a week doing cardio and light lifting to stay toned. Occasionally I eat carbs like a pizza or spaghetti a few times a month. I take the IC-5 when I do.
Can't tell you about weight loss since I don't weigh. What for? My test is how my cloths fit and how I look when looking at myself in the mirror.
After taking the product for about a month, my cloths fit a little looser and my waist line on my pants is hanging down a little more on my hips. I like what I see in the mirror.
But then I have started drinking lime martini's around the same time before going out dancing. I do Latin, swing and ballroom. Don't know if its the limes or IC-5, but something is working for me. I am going to order one of their other products now and try that out.
Finally, there is no magic bullet. It's a combination of exercise, diet and nutrition. Combine the 3 and you should see results. Can't just sit there and stuff your face with burgers, fries and washing them down with coke and eating ice cream watching TV all night after work. Its input/output. It all helps.
