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.

Awesome and Amazing Company and Product
I am 59 and have been a habitual dieter most of my life. With the addition of Celiac Disease, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome my weight got completely out of control. No matter how healthy I ate, how much I restricted calories, exercised (when possible) and tried so many plans and products I was really ready to give up as I could not lose weight at all and worst of all hurt and felt horrible all the time. I knew my metabolism was shot but didnt seem to be able to find a way to get it started again no matter what I tried.
When I saw the Pro-X 10 video I wanted to start this product for my health which is the most important--losing weight is a wonderful side benefit. I started with the Pro-X 10 and the Leptiburn and started getting results quickly. I then added the IC-5, AbsorbMax, shakes and cookies and today I am not only down 35 pounds but I cant even remember the last time I felt this good!! Being pain free also gave me the ability to exercise again which is wonderful.
Seeing is believing and I am a walking talking testimony to how great these products are!! I have a great way to talk about it as when I see friends the first thing they ask is--what are you doing!!!!!
Their customer service is wonderful and the forum is a fantastic way to get your questions answered--quickly I might add. For all those out there who are tired of being sick and tired I cannot recommend this company and product highly enough.
Only rating the buying process so far
I received an email with the very convincing but long commercial. Long history of diabetes in my family and I have worked hard not to follow suit. It would take to long to go into my 60 year history, but this product seemed perfect for me. Does sound too good to be true, yet I decided to try. That's on me.
The reason I am writing this is that AFTER I had given my credit card information, I was informed that I needed another very expensive product for better results. OK, I am somewhat desperate so I decided to give that a try. Then I am told that I need yet ANOTHER expensive product in order to achieve the results I wanted. These types of sales techniques make me uneasy, so I tried to cancel the whole thing. No way. I immediately got an email that my order was received and that I had ordered all three products, including the one that definitely did not order. This amounted to over $600.
Like I said, I am desperate so I have decided to give it a try. If it works, I have no problem paying $600. or more. I am tired to dealing with blood sugar issues.
In my opinion, one should be VERY careful ordering from these folks. I am very uneasy and don't feel the TRUST. I will let you know how it works. I also am glad that I used my American Express card as from what I have heard they have a very good record for settling disputes.
You could do this, or save money and have better results.
The five ingredients in IC-5 can be bought separately for significantly less, as one bottle tends to have up to 100 capsules in it instead of only a 30-day supply. I researched all five ingredients and added up the price of buying them separate and reached a grand total of $58. While its more convenient to only have to take one pill instead of five, you would get better results buying it separate. They're using the grand method of selling you less for more, IC-5 by Biotrust contains less mg's of each of these ingredients than what you're recommended to take daily. Buying it separately, one capsule contains much more than all but one of the ingredients in the IC-5 pill. The Vitamin Shoppe sells them all, but I'm sure a good health store in a nearby location to most people would also have these
Don't waste your money
I used this product faithfully for 3 months, exercise every day for at least an hour and ate as they directed. Not only did I not lose weight...I gained a few pounds!! I feel completely scammed by these bozos. Don't waste your time (they make you watch timely videos) or money on this expensive product that doesn't work...lose weight the old fashioned way...move more and eat less.
Truly an eye opening experience
It has been a good half of year since using the Biotrust products, and this company is legit as it gets. It is NOT A SCAM!!! I repeat, it is NOT A SCAM!!!Those reviews really get under my skin because it absolutely worked for me, and I know it will work for you as well. I don't want to go into detail with what happened to me thus far in my life, but I suffered a massive heat stroke, and had a traumatic brain injury, and my weight and health went downhill. After taking initiative and learning about the science about the Biotrust products, I put them to use, and it has changed my life. I don't take my health and nutrition for granted, and the Biotrust company is a ray of HOPE
I had to give this a rating to leave a comment . i have not bought it yet because it sounds like all the other stuff but mostly because they did not have paypal on their site. if they had that i would try it. who does not have paypal and why? strange. i am sure it will work for some and not for others
did'nt work for me
tried one month and said maybe to future shipments. Did not work for me so I was just going to forgo the 34.50 for the 1st bottle but now they have charged me 59.00 for another bottle (that I have not even received yet)... so I am seeking a full refund of 93.50 and have sent that request to their website. I will let you know what happens and how long it takes to get back in my bank account,
50% off Black Friday Sale.IC 5.
When I click on the link, no such offer exists.What is going on here???
Super Products, Super Customer Support, Super Service!!!!!
I can't say enough good things about BioTrust & all of it's team members! I have NEVER experienced the level of customer support, downright caring, product that really works & free advice thru the forum, that I have been fortunate enough to receive from BioTrust (& I'm 65 years old)!!!!!
I've been diabetic for 10 years. I was put on oral meds to begin with, but the meds made me gain weight. This caused my blood sugar levels to go even higher so the amt. of meds prescribed for me just got higher & higher. Almost 6 years ago insulin shots were added to the mix with the same results. I started out taking 1 shot of insulin daily, it was increased to twice a day. That's 2 shots in the stomach daily folks~~~for YEARS! Not to mention checking your blood sugar levels multiple times daily. Yep~~~more needles!
I was foruntate enough to run across an advertisement for IC-5 from BioTrust. After taking it for LESS THAN A WEEK my blood sugar levels were NORMAL!! IC-5 has done for me what Dr's and prescription medicine (no telling how many $$$$) weren't able to come close to doing in 10 years!
So far IC-5 is the only product that I've used~~~but I've ordered several more & can't wait to get them. I'm not in the least bit worried about any of them not working & if they for some reason didn't work for me I KNOW they would all be cheerfully be refunded. And most likely refunded with an apology!! I'm telling you this company & their entire team really ROCK!!!
Just so you know~~~this is the FIRST time I have ever written a review for anything. Reading the negative reviews just make me want to cry~~~because I honestly believe their was definite misunderstanding on all of them!
Not feeling the TRUST
I just purchased and received an "upsell" VIP offer which indicated that I could get a special price on a new product not yet available on the website and for a reduced rate. I clicked the link which brought me to the page for pro-x10, which was what I already purchased. It's obviously already available on the website and not at any VIP rate. With the name of your company having the word TRUST in it, you're not, so far, encouraging any trust from me. I sure hope my order is delivered, charged and works as expected.
Good product..but Way overpriced..make your own.
Took me a while but have found all these ingredients myself..Check out Puritans pride and others..make your own. There product is decent but WAY overpriced for the average person. Knew that was coming watching their long drawn out video before their expected money request.
My daughter and I have Celiac, so sometimes it's hard to go to the bathroom, or just the opposite. :( The Pro-X10 has helped regulate her stools, mine are the same so far...The price is high though, even with monthly delivery.
Leptiburn Helped Me Lose Weight Indirectly
I started my weight loss program on May 5, 2013 and have till date lost 8 kilos. My waist size has gone from 38 to less than 34. I have been on leptiburn for over 4 months now. The following are my observations.
I have made major changes to my lifestyle, including weekly fasts lasting for 1 day, cutting down heavily on junk foods, including ayurvedic supplements/drugs (like triphala) and yoga 3 - 4 times a week. I also have a morning drink with garlic, ginger, honey, lemon and turmeric. I have not gone to the gym during this time or done any rigorous physical exercises.
Most weight loss, has occurred during my weekly fast (obviously). When done properly, including drinking a lot of water, consuming triphala, and avoiding all solid food altogether, I have lost nearly a kilo (2 pounds) in a day. And when I stick to my diet, that change stays.
My observation is that Leptiburn, by itself, has not caused me to lose weight. Every time I deviate from my diet for even a couple of days, I put on weight. But there are 2 important ways in which leptiburn has contributed to weight loss.
First, it helps avoid the hunger that causes food craving and results in overeating, especially during the evenings. Second, it provides high energy that helps me avoid lethargy and afternoon fatigue.
My only concern about Leptiburn is that I have not found any lasting improvement. I would expect that over a period of time, it helps in healing the body by helping it secrete more leptin. But that does not seem to be the case. So I am very concerned about becoming dependent on this drug for life. I don't see that as being a good thing in the long term.
Although I live in India, I have never faced any of the issues regarding payment or shipping from this company. They stand by their offers, and they ship well. When I wanted to cancel a product subscription, they were prompt in doing so. Their customer service is above average.
Hope my review helps you in your life-improvement journeys.
They have been true to their Word so far :)
I have bought Leptiburn for weight loss and then I found my heart couldn't handle the added caffeine from 2 of the ingredients, so I had to stop taking it, and I called and got an return authorization, and sent it back and within a week's time I got a full refund on my purchase. So, they are definitely true to their word.
I just ordered their IC5 product, and my primary reason is not for weight loss but to get my blood sugar/insulin resistance under control. If I wind up losing weight in the process, then I'll be stoked about that.
But so far, I have no complaints....I would have started taking the IC5 Today, but FedEx didn't leave the box on the front porch of my dad's place where I had it sent...now I have to wait til after the Labor Day holiday, and I'll go pick up on Tues or Wednesday the latest from an alternate Fed Ex location.
I'll submit another review once I've been on the IC5 for a few month and I go get another A1C test done. I'm still waiting for the results of my latest one, but the last one indicated that I'm on the Borderline for having Type 2 Diabetes...I'm so hoping the IC5 will help me with this and help me have a lower result with my next text!!
Be careful of the ingrediants
They say IC-5 has Cinnamomum cassia, and talk about how it is prescription only in Germany. That is because of the coumarin content. While the level of naturally occurring coumarins in Ceylon cinnamon appears to be very small and lower than the amount that could cause health risks, the level of naturally occurring coumarins in the cassia cinnamons appears to be higher and may pose a risk to some individuals if consumed in substantial amounts on a regular basis. For this reason, organizations like the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment in Berlin, Germany have recommended that large amounts of the cassia cinnamons be avoided.
Poor customer service/poor products
I recently ordered the IC-5 and the Pro-X 10. I used them for 3 months and I saw no change what so ever. Align, which is far cheaper, is a much better product than Pro-X10. Don't waste your money and time with these products.
Also, they say have a 1 year money back guarantee. When I went to send them back, I only received credit for the bottle I sent back in. I had recycled the other 2 because I didn't think I had to save them. Clearly my account shows I paid for them. I understand you need to return a product if it doesn't work, but it states you should try the products out for at least 6 weeks before returning and that's what I did. No where was it stated you must save all bottles for a COMPLETE refund. I find this very deceitful and am extremely sorry I spent my hard earned money on such a bad company. Don't buy anything from there. It is a complete and utter ripoff.
All Products and Service
We have been using the BioTrust products since March 2013. We started with the Protein Powder, Lepti-Burn and IC-5. Our goal was weight loss. We eventually added all of their other products, including Absorbmax, ProX10, BCAA, the cookies and protein bars. The results have been great. My wife and I have each lost over 35 pounds and our college age athletes love the protein powder, bars and cookies.
Service has been fantastic. They have gone over and above what most companies will do for their customers. They have answered every question we had in a timely manner, they promptly credited my card when I realized we screwed up an order, they have extended us one of their "discounted" specials after the special ended because I had missed the emails that went out because of a computer issue I had. Truly, their service is above expectations.
We have not had a single issue with any product. All four of us, ages 54, 51, 20, 19 have used each of the products, as instructed, and have had great results.
I see negative comments here, however, we have not experienced any of the issues I have seen stated. Actually, just the opposite. While we have not had to return any product, at this point, I am fully confident that they would honor their money-back guarantee, based on our current experience.
I hope this answers some questions people may have regarding the products and service.
The Spike I needed
I am not so keen on using products to support my weight loss program and transformation program but after coming in contact with Biotrust
IC-5 the spike I needed to burn carbs was just there.
However,based on my location it is hard to get this product directly and am really interested in investing in such idea for me and so many more Nigerians willing to have opportunities like this.Information is key

This is no Scam a bottle was all i needed.
One Day Diet Success!
After my first 30 days on the "One Day Diet," I got awesome results...
I was nearly perfect in following the program. I only got off track 2 of the 30 days. Here are some of my results:
Went from 202.4 to 187.8 - Loss of 14.6 lbs
Body Fat % went from 28.4% to 24.6% - Loss of 3.8%
I lost a total of 14.25 inches from the girth measurements that were suggested to track: chest, waist, hips, arm, thigh, and calf.
I am extremely happy with what I achieved during these 30 days. The plan was simple and easy to follow. I didn't have to plan a bunch of meals or recipes, and I didn't have to go to the grocery store every day or watch the clock for my next meal.
BioTrust Low Carb is so good it feels like you're doing something bad. Having two delicious smoothies seems like a reward, whereas most diets feel like punishment. I even bought several bottles to share with my friends and family.
I also used LeptiBurn and Pro-X10 during this time. My energy levels were great, and my appetite was not a problem at all. I love the Pro-X10. I normally get some allergies this time of year, and they were non-existent!
Thanks BioTrust and thank you for the "One Day Diet"!!!!
Pros and Cons
The best thing they have going is their refund policy.
I have tried a number of their products. AbsorbMax seems like a good product so far. Their protein shake formula also seems like a good choice.
However, there are two glaring problems I see:
1) Reviews for their products are controlled. The company understands SEC and internet marketing well. Run a search for reviews on their products, and the vast majority of your results will be cloaked advertisements. The only way you can get real reviews is by digging around for comment columns like this and seeing what people posted on the bottom.
2) While I have liked some of their products, after using Leptiburn for months, I developed a SERIOUS REFLUX PROBLEM. I mean SERIOUS, like wake up in the middle of the night and can't breathe serious. I had not had this problem before, and it took my doctor and I a while to figure it out. Now that I have been off of Leptiburn for only a couple of weeks, my reflux issue has subsided, and I no longer wake up unable to breathe. This is a SERIOUS matter that makes me say absolutely NO to this product. Many other users have reported nausea, heartburn, and dizziness.
