BioTrust, found online at BioTrust.com, is a new line of health supplements founded by nutritionists Josh Bezoni and Joel Marion that promises to include only top quality, all natural ingredients.
Josh and Joel created BioTrust in 2011 after learning that the health supplement industry in the United States is essentially unregulated. This means that not only do certain supplements not provide the results they promise, but some of them don’t even include the ingredients they promise.
As nutritionists who believe that nutritional supplements play an important role in people’s health, they decided to create a supplement line that not only has top quality, all natural ingredients, but that also is free from hormones, antibiotics, artificial sweeteners, coloring, flavors, and preservatives.
Their supplement line includes IC-5, which is their supplement for Advanced Insulin and Carbohydrate Management. Though many diets emphasize eating protein and reducing carbohydrates, BioTrust says that you should include carbohydrates in your diet, as long as your body is processing them correctly.
Their IC-5 supplement helps your body process carbs correct because it includes five different ingredients which BioTrust says has been proven to help your body maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
They also offer LeptiBurn, an advanced fat burning hormone supplement which increases your leptin levels, which helps your body burn fat. LeptiBurn includes six different ingredients which BioTrust says have all been shown to help your body burn fat.
A one month supply of any of BioTrust’s supplements range between $49.95 and $69.00, depending on what you are ordering. But all of their supplements purchase packages give you the option of purchasing two bottles and receiving a third bottle free, or purchasing four bottles and receiving two bottles for free.
BioTrust also offers a 1 year guarantee. If you return your empty or unused products within one year of the purchase date, you will receive your money back within 3 days.

Bait & Switch
The initial page shows that it only costs around $40.00. But then, they get me with all the other "Diet Suppliments" I have read several reviews. Some are very positive as far as results. Others are very negative about billing, poor customer service, and extra charges for more products in order for this diet to work.
I have not yet begun the diet because
1. Even though at the beginning of this e-catalog, it states easy instructions with no fillers. Almost everything I have read on the first document is "filler". Why not straightforward, to the point easy to follow directions like it claims?
2. The added supplements, chapters and video cost EXTRA. I could go on some other popular glycemic index commercial plan for a lot less. I tried a well know one in the past and it worked for me! I got my money's worth and it was EASY TO FOLLOW without added diet supplements.
On my other well known glycemic index plan, it just gave basic food supplement ideas. No calculations necessary and No added products.
That time I lost nearly 50 lbs. I think I am going to go back to that program again!
Expensive but worth it
Biotrust products are a little on the expensive side. That is why it took me a while to embrace it. You do get what you pay for. And that is quality products along with quality service. They also have very informative coaches that answer any nutritional questions you may have about their products. I personally have tried their protein powders, protein cookies, and protein bars. If you compare their prices with similar products out there, they really aren't that expensive. But you can trust that Biotrust products are top-notch in terms of quality. None of their products have artificial sweeteners and soy.
I don't like how I was misled
I bought what I thought was going to be a downloadable book to lead me through this diet. I paid real money for a CATALOGUE. The downloads contained scant information, and you cannot do this program without the products. I do not want more products. I want a good, sound, scientific program. And if that includes products, then tell me up front. I have lost my investment in the "book." I don't care how great the products are. Do not make me pay for your advertising.
On Being Ripped Off and Customer Service
Hi everyone! I am re-posting my reply to one of the posts, because I have been going through this site for reviews (Im looking for Pro-X10 reviews) and read a lot about the topics mentioned above..
I live in the UAE and had just placed my 2nd order of Biotrust products, and so far I dont see that I have been ripped off.. I mean, customer service is great (please note that they are off on weekends as mentioned on their website):
- I message them on FB (asking about the products, or my shipment, or their ebooks) and I get a reply straight away (all the time!)
- I called their customer service and was able to speak to someone
- I send them an email and I do get a reply from them asap
For me, I had an excellent experience in that area and consider that as good grounds on buying products from them.
As for the over-billing, I was concerned about this too, because their products are not exactly cheap so I carefully read everything before finalizing my order, and so far everything is in order. And I think you can order through the phone and give them you cc details verbally, avoiding any paper trail (at least)
As for their products, I dont think I will be trying any other product similar to Leptiburn, IC5 and Low Carb anytime soon (or at all!). All these really helped me with my weight loss. Really. I am not a strict healthy eater and my portions are ok (i like to enjoy my food intake :D), within the 400-500 calorie range per meal.. and I workout regularly (at least 1hr 4x a wk). So all those combined with the biotrust products.. Super!
I lost 20lbs...
I lost 20lbs (with "zero" special exercise) in 2 months and I feel fabulous thanks to LeptiBurn. I combined the One Day Diet recommendation of "intermittent fasting", i.e. not eating before 12noon and not after 7pm and I watched the weight come off every day. I like to weigh myself since my greatest motivation is watching my weight go down. I have also learned what foods cause weight gain and what foods allow weight loss by monitoring what I eat. I try to stick with one ingredient foods (mainly meats and vegetables). There was a time when I would drain myself exercising. I did absolutely NO special exercising this time. Rather I chose to "sleep off" or drink a beverage whenever I felt a little hungry. I also drink sparkling water with a touch of lime througout the day. Finally, I continue to enjoy a glass of wine evenings, especially after 7pm when I stay off of the solid foods.
I've tried quite literally 4 dozen plus protein powders each with varying degrees of texture(used to work for supplement company). Some too sweet some not sweet enough,others pumped full of chemicals others have too many artificial flavors and even a few that used juiced up cow milk(scary) but i just tried my first shaker bottle of biotrust low carb protein and let me tell you the taste,texture,mixability was smooth,flawless and crisp. Never have i had a more cleaner protein(and i thought hydrowhey was the best) i could actually taste the vanilla without being overpowered by aspartane or maltrodextrin or "other natural flavors" the sweetner was stevia which is all natural. I will admit its not great or awesome but it gets the job done in filling your protein recquirement and two scoops fill you up(it did for me and i had a meal b4 i tried it) if you guys are on the fence about this product due to the price or bad reviews then listen to me(pretty please with cherry on top) and buy this protein its 100% legit.
Who Does Enjoy Being Ripped Off??
Initially I decided to buy a "trial" offer of Pro-X10 for $24.97. I was billed
on April 26th, and received my package about a week later. I have not opened the bottle yet, because I was still using up another brand's probiotic. On May 28, 32 days after my purchase, my checking account
was debited for additional unauthorized $24.98. Today is June 27th, I just got my statement and found out what your company did. I now must call my bank in the morning to see if you did the same thing again. Stop
debiting my account ASAP. BioTrust should not be trusted! Your business practices are dishonest. I would never recommend that anyone do business with you. Beware!
I am a registered nurse and a certified nutritional counselor. I work out everyday, have a green drink, eat organic foods, and take good care of myself. Unfortunately, I still suffer from hypothyroidism. I have to say that I have used many brands of supplements over the years and none compare to BioTrust.
I have lost weight using their products while eating sensibly. I cannot believe that these guys exist, but I am very thankful, from the bottom of my heart, that they do. I literally use EVERY one of the products, and I feel obligated to share them with my family and tell my friends.
I have my 78 year old mother who uses BioTrust Low Carb everyday. My best friend, who has recently suffered some significant health issues, takes BCAA Matrix and Pro-X10, and she is actually keeping the muscle on, which she was not able to do with other brands of BCAA. I love the products so much and am so pleased to know that there are people with integrity out there. Thank you, BioTrust!
Bought a product from biotrust and everything was going fine but then I got billed $62 out of nowhere for something that I didn't purchase. I had no subscriptions and don't know what is going on. Everytime I ring the support number it says it is disconnected. I really want this sorted out because I hate having my hard earned money going to nowhere. I am finding it really hard to contact biotrust to sort out this problem.
Good, I enjoyed all of the reviews, good and bad.
I have had a weight problem many years. I lost 75 pounds on the WW program of the 70's. I know how imporant self discipline is. Sad to say, I have not maintained that discipline and gained about 30 lbs back. I want to try your product. I am a little concerned about all the other products you are selling for the stomach as I do have GRED and take prescription for this. I do look forward to trying the BioTrust products
Biotrust Low Carb Protein Powder
I wanted to leave a review on this product that I bought on Biotrust's website that was recommended by Isabel De Los Rios. It tastes very good. As of late I've been on the hunt for a good tasting protein powder packed with vitamins and minerals but doesn't include any Aspartame (triggers my migraines). I also pay attention to the ingredients in protein powders as whey protein isolate doesn't give me gas like some of the others. This powder doesn't have any weird after taste like the Monster Milk that I've currently bought. Also with 4 net grams of carbs it's essential to my low-carb diet routine. It mixes smoothly with any ingredient and helps keep you satiated/full as a meal supplement. I also got the shake recipes provided on the website, I want to drink a shake all day, haha. It does help you to loose weight, but with ALL diets you have to exercise and eat right. To see any weight loss results I had to do a low-carb diet. I feel great without them, but I love carbs especially bread. I have reached that weight loss plateau and may consider the Leptiburn. However, compared to some of the protein powders that have whey protein isolate, an expensive ingredient, the cost is too much. I've also seen other products with custom protein blends that release slowly and/or rapidly. With other protein powders you get at least 2 lbs of powder for $30 to $40. Biotrust's only has 1.2 lbs and 14 servings per container for $50, meaning you need 4 containers to last 1 month; I drink 2 shakes a day as a meal supplement. Based on the math, you aren't getting the most bang for your buck. I just can't seem to justify spending $120 per month on a protein powder that only lasts for 21 days (bought buy 2 get 1). I really love this product, but unless Biotrust decides to bring down their cost per serving or add more servings per container, I will have to resort to a different protein powder that taste pretty good in comparison like EAS vanilla.
So I give Biotrust Low-Carb Vanilla Creme & Chocolate:
(I like the Vanilla one more)
5 Stars for Taste
5 Stars for Quality

No Money Back Guarantee as promised
I have attempted over 9 times to request a refund as the information provided was not as I expected. The site states full money back guarantee, but they will just bounce your request around without results.
Shipped fast and 2 weeks later I feel the products work and I love the taste of the shakes and cookies. I've already lost 10lbs with 60 to go.
Excellent so far with no complaints
Been on Biotrust products for about a month and I love love love them. I've lost 18 pounds, several inches and I feel incredible. The shakes are delicious, the cookies and bars satisfy greatly in between meals. Customer service is real good. I was very skeptical at first but now I'm a believer! Keep up the great products, they work real well.
Great experience so far
My order arrived quickly and was nicely packaged. I have eaten several oatmeal and chocolate chip cookies and will say they are pretty delicious for being good for you, only draw back is they can become a little addictive so i limit eating only 2 per day.:)... In any case, I started using the Leptiburn, Low Carb, IC-5 and AbsorbMax 3 days ago and haven't noticed much difference yet other than I'm less hungry and have a little more energy, but I know it will take some time using them. I can't expect miracles. i'll try to report back with how things are going in about a month or so. Other than that, I'm really happy with the taste of everything, and so far nothing is disagreeing with me except that I do have more gas and slight cramping in the abdomen sometimes. I have changed my eating habits to more healthy greens and fibrous foods and from what I've read this can be normal.
I had purchased a product which I never received and a month later my account got charged double the amount plus the original payment. My account did not even have my money in it for that. When I called, customer service is only open normal business hours and its a Saturday morning. I would have loved to try the product but never was able too and they broke my bank!
Very happy with product taste and results! I'm on my second month and I've lost over 20 lbs and 6 inches of belly fat and I feel great. Cookies and bars taste better than any other products I've tried, but the cookies are my favorite. I've been using Leptiburn and Low Carb. I called several times, the people are pleasant and helpful before and after ordering. Great experience with customer service, very pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend
Query on Absorbmax
i have lost weight, however each time i take the Absorbmax, i get a good deal of uncomfortable abdominal cramps i don't know why.
Could the BioTrust team let me know why. thank you.
Shipped Order without accepting and processing
I was pulled in and started to fill out the order form, but did not go through the process to submit or accept their product and they shipped it to me anyway. Be carefull and if I get billed or sent more I wont be paying for any of it!
Do not trust them
This is a marketing company not a supplement company. They will try to deceive you in every way possible wether its autoship/autocharge or advertising a certain price and then charging you double.
This should tell you something about their product...
I am hoping to get my refund but not holding my breath...
