Biotrim, now known as Biophysique, has generated a lot of interest as a patch that can be applied quickly and easily to help dieters lose weight. Because of the simplicity of this product, we decided to do an in-depth review of the ingredients, side effects, clinical research, and actual results of dieters using this product. We also read hundreds of online reviews and comments; then we summarized what we found to provide you with the info you need.
What You Need to Know
Biotrim is a translucent patch that is applied to the skin to help suppress appetite and increase energy. Each patch contains all natural ingredients, including cayenne, eyebright, hawthorn, juniper, kelp, lavender, and more. These ingredients serve multiple purposes, including antioxidants, laxatives, tissue repair, skin hydration, simulants, and more. One benefit of these patches is that you can take them with you anywhere and apply as needed.
Biotrim has been around for about 5 years, so it is still a fairly new product. The company has changed the name of the product a few times, but as far as we can tell, the formula has remained the same. It is available through their official website and on some third-party sites. We like that the product is easy to find and is convenient for any lifestyle, but read on…
Price–“Overcharged and Auto-Renewed”
Biotrim has gained a negative reputation on multiple consumer-reporting websites for auto renewals and overcharging customers. “The initial cost of Biotrim isn’t excessive, but most reviews online complained that the company overcharged and auto-renewed their purchases,” said our research editor. “This has led to a higher than normal cost and a distrust of the company behind Biotrim.”
“The price online was $18.99, but I was charged $94.00 and it continued billing me every month and I don’t know how to cancel it,” said one user.
“Biotrim may help me lose weight, but the company seems sketchy with all these overcharging and auto-renewal complaints,” said another.

Harmful Side Effects–Another Concern
For those that did try Biotrim, there were some negative side effects stemming from the ingredients. Because the FDA has not approved these patches, the ingredients are not regulated and some have unintended consequences. The stimulants can cause jitters and palpitations while the laxatives can cause stomach issues and nausea. Some users reported an allergic reaction to the patch. “I don’t know if Biotrim helps people lose weight, but it did give me jitters and insomnia,” said one user.
“I had constant stomach pain,” said another. Many online reviews had similar complaints, with several people experiencing mild to severe side effects from Biotrim. “I had an allergic reaction to the patch and had to stop use immediately. The company wouldn’t refund my money either,” said one customer.
Our research shows that whenever a diet or exercise program has an especially troublesome aspect (painful routine, harmful side effects, bad taste, high cost, etc.), the likelihood of losing weight and keeping it off is slim. If Biotrim really does have some significant negative side effects, it could make it difficult to achieve permanent weight loss goals.
Biotrim claims to be supported by science, and the all-natural ingredients are encouraging at first glance, but there are no scientific studies or published research available proving that their claims are true. In fact, we couldn’t find any information supporting Biotrim’s claims, and there is no evidence supporting Biotrim as an effective weight loss supplement. We value unbiased research and published studies, so without that we’re skeptical of any product.
The Bottom Line
We like that Biotrim is easy to find, convenient to use, and all-natural, but we can’t recommend it as a weight loss product for our readers without some scientific evidence supporting its claims. We’re also concerned about the high cost from the auto-renewal and overcharging that many customers have experienced, not to mention the harmful side effects and the lack of FDA approval.
If you’d like a safe and effective way to lose weight, we suggest you go with a weight loss product that delivers affordable results with ingredients supported by unbiased clinical studies and published scientific research.
One of the best products we’ve reviewed so far in 2015 is a product called Leptigen
. Leptigen’s proprietary blend of four ingredients has been reviewed and studied in clinical studies with published scientific research, and it is proven to be more effective than a placebo in boosting metabolism and improving fat burning. Users seem to agree that Leptigen helps them meet their weight loss goals, and we can’t find any mention of harmful side effects associated with taking this product.
The makers of Leptigen are even offering a special trial offer, which shows how confident they are that you’ll love their product and see the weight come off with Leptigen.
