This is a simple review. My experience with their product is that it does not deliver what is promised. It is also over priced by about a factor of 4. And the constant upselling and spam emails from them just cluttered up my life.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Company Response from BioTRUST
Jan 18, 2016
I hope this finds you doing well and in the best of health. My name is Tim Skwiat, and I am the Director of Nutrition and Exercise with BioTrust Nutrition.
I keep a close eye on review websites like this in an effort to ensure that our outstanding customers like yourself enjoy a completely positive all-around experience. It’s our goal to provide our customers with world-class customer service, which has earned BioTrust an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
With that being said, I am remiss to hear that your expectations were not met with the BioTrust supplements in which you invested. It's our goal to produce the world's purest, most effective supplements that are bigger, badder, and better than anything else on the market. All of our products are based on the most recent, best available science, and we only use ingredients in the precise amounts that have been demonstrated in research on real humans just like you to be markedly effective and safe.
With that being said, I want to do everything I possibly can to make sure that you're completely taken care of. As a nutrition coach—available directly to help you achieve your health and fitness goals—I would be curious to learn more about your expectations of the products you used and how you measured your progress along the way.
For starters, it may be helpful to know which products you were using to support your health and fitness goals. What did you set out to accomplish using these products? How did you use them? What measurements did you take (e.g., blood chemistry profiles, scale weight, body composition, girth measurements, etc.)?
With regard to the pricing of our products, I’ll be happy to provide you some additional information that can help you and other customers explain why our premium, research-backed supplements are priced the way they are. For starters, there’s a HUGE quality control issue in the dietary supplement industry. The overwhelming majority of companies choose to cut corners in order to increase profit margins.
For instance, most companies don’t choose the best forms of ingredients nor do they provide them in efficacious amounts based on research on real humans like you and I. BioTrust only chooses the best ingredients and provides them in the amounts and forms that science has demonstrated to be effective.
We perform extensive raw ingredient and finished product testing to ensure that the identity, purity, and potency of each ingredient in all of our products. Many companies don’t do this, and as a result, what’s on the label is not truly in the bottle. In addition, we conduct extensive contaminant testing using advanced laboratory techniques to ensure that our products exceed even the most stringent standards for contaminants (e.g., heavy metals, pesticide residue, solvents, bacteria, mold, etc.). Other companies do NOT do this, and subsequently, this raises tremendous concerns about what you’re truly putting into your body.
We only work with the highest-tier manufacturers, which all strictly follow the Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) for dietary supplement and food manufacturing. Using only the best GMP-certified manufacturers ensure that our products are accurately labeled, are free from contaminants (e.g., bacteria, pesticides, glass, etc.), and have been manufactured to ensure identity, purity, strength, and composition. I can’t begin to tell you how many companies use manufacturers that are not GMP compliant or cut corners here in order to save money. In fact, we audit all manufacturers before and during our work with them, and we have had to turn down relationships with many of them due to the fact that they did NOT meet our extensive quality criteria.
Lastly, while the scientific data on each product’s ingredients provides convincing evidence of their effectiveness and thousands of customers can attest to each product’s real-world application, testing the products in a manner like this further demonstrates product safety and efficacy. Although this is very rare in the industry and it is a very expensive, arduous process, we believe that it is a great service to our customers, and this is yet another example of putting the "TRUST" in BioTrust.
With all of that being said, we offer our great customers many opportunities to save money on our products. For instance, we regularly have e-mail and mail promotions whereby customers can save 15 – 20 percent (or more) on their orders. We also offer special discounts on bundles (e.g., 3- and 6-bottle bundles) of products, as well as discounted rates when customers choose our Ship-N-Save option. All of these are efforts to help provide even more value to our customers.
As you can see, we’re very passionate about what we do and helping great folks like yourself, George. That’s why I’m so sorry to hear that your expectations weren’t met and why I’d like to do everything I can to help you. You see, we use these products ourselves, we share them with our family and friends, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to our clients.
With regard to e-mail, we sincerely appreciate your feedback, and I’m sorry to hear that you don’t enjoy receiving health and nutrition tips on a regular basis. The overwhelming majority of our subscribers appreciate the information, but we understand that it’s not for everyone. That’s why you’re more than welcome to unsubscribe or reduce the volume of e-mails (e.g., 2 days per week) at any time. You can do this by visiting the Customer Support page on our website or by using the links at the bottom of any e-mail that we send out.
As far as the recommended upsells, we greatly appreciate your feedback on that as well. Again, most customers greatly appreciate the suggestions, as they may not be familiar with our entire product line. Further, these recommendations are complimentary products that other customers have chosen with similar goals/purchases. You’re never obligated to choose any additional products; however, we feel that it again offers our customers even more value by helping them better understand how synergistic products may further enhance their health and body composition.
That being said, you are completely protected by our one-year money-back guarantee, and our Customer Service team will be happy to assist you with an exchange or return. Based on the information provided (e.g., first name, location), we cannot confirm your account in our system. If you would be so kind as to follow up with me directly and provide a little bit more information (e.g., last name, order number), that would be incredibly helpful in making sure that you’re taken care of. Also, our Customer Service Team can be reached by phone, e-mail, or through our website (BioTrust.com):
I'd also like to make myself personally available to you for additional assistance, and you can contact me directly at tskwiat@BioTrust.com. I'll be happy to assist you with any questions that you have, as well as arrange for a Customer Care Specialist to reach out to you at a time that is convenient for you. Likewise, I will also be glad to help you in any way that I can in achieving your health and fitness goals. After all, our ultimate goal is to help you achieve yours.
With all that said, I look forward to hearing from you soon, George. Please let me know how I may be of further assistance.
