This review is what happened after I obsessed for weeks over Josh Bezoni. We checked out his credentials, supplement line, clinical research and customer service. We also dug through hundreds of comments to see what people thought of the products. Then, we condensed it all and gave you the bottom line.

Who is Josh Bezoni?

First off, Josh Bezoni is the creator of the Biotrust supplement line. The nutritionist and self-proclaimed supplement expert started the company in 2012 with Joel Marion. You can find formulas for weight-loss, heart health, meal replacement and more.

In addition to Biotrust Nutrition, Josh Bezoni runs personal and fitness websites. Of course, there are direct links to the supplement line throughout both. We like the large number of products to choose from and he is a nutritionist, but read on…

Unhappy Customers – “Did Josh Miss the Mark?”

The first issue we noticed with Josh Bezoni was that Biotrust Nutrition products didn’t always make customers happy. “No matter your qualifications, if you offer a subpar supplement, the buyer will know,” says our Research Editor.

“Probably won’t buy again because the price is crazy,” one user complained.

A buyer also claimed, “Way too sweet, too much stevia in this brand of protein drinks. Without so much sweetness, it would be a good product.”

For every negative comment, we found a positive one, which makes it difficult to take a side.

“I love Biotrust products and use them all,” shared one customer.

Another fan said, “The company is extremely helpful and has a great guarantee.”

Side Effects – “Does He Know They Are a Problem?”

You always run the risk of side effects when you offer supplements to the consumer. This is true of Josh Bezoni’s Biotrust Nutrition, as well.

One complaint said, “I can’t tell if this helps. But this thing gives me a headache.”

Another review shared, “Did not work at all for me. Seemed to cause gastric upset as well. Cannot recommend.”

As we find in many cases, there are those who experience side effects and those who don’t.

A happy customer said, “It’s great stuff. I feel so much better after taking it for a few months.”

“I think It is doing the job but is gradual so not so noticable,” was another experience.

Over the past years, we’ve found that research links small things, like reports of side effects, to a lesser chance of supplement line success. If Josh Bezoni runs Biotrust Nutrition and there are issues with reactions, that could cut into sales and customer trust.

The Science – “Does Research Support Claims?”

We know there is a quality assurance department and you can return or exchange products for up to one year, but we found nothing about clinical testing. Though we like to see a company produce results that deal directly with a specific supplement, Josh Bezoni could have at least offered general science to back ingredients.

The Bottom Line – Does Josh Bezoni’s Line Work?

Should you trust Josh Bezoni and Biotrust Nutrition? Well, there are some good products in the line, like a low-carb protein and omega fatty acid support, but you can find these from hundreds of companies. We are concerned about the unhappy customers and the lack of clinical testing. It’s also a problem that side effects are an issue for some.

If you’ve reached the point where weight-loss is the only option, we suggest you go with a product line that offers up science to support all claims. It’s also helpful if customers are happy with the company.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. It’s made with four ingredients and all have been clinically tested with results showing they help boost metabolism and fat loss. The company behind the formula offers research to support all claims and reports of side effects are minimal.

Plus, you get a Special Trial Offer because the company is so confident in Leptigen’s formula.

What You Should Know

Slim Body Matrix Shakes, developed by nutritionist Josh Bezoni, are designed to be used as part of a diet that includes 5 mini-meals eaten 3 hours apart rather than three full meals and snacks. Containing proteins, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibers, Slim Body Matrix Shakes are said to be the perfect solution for getting in five mini-meals per day without the cost and trouble of preparing actual food. The shakes contain Nutrim, a slow-release oat flour blend that works to provide a sense of fullness that takes effect almost immediately and is said to last for several hours. Whey protein isolate is added to fight fat by boosting metabolism. Slim Body Matrix Shakes come in four flavors: Milk Chocolate Cream, Chocolate Caramel Swirl, Strawberry Banana Split and Vanilla Cake Batter. Each serving contains 140 calories, 2 grams of sugar and 3 grams of healthy fats, in addition to 26 essential vitamins and minerals and a specially formulated enzyme blend to ease digestion.


Whey protein isolate, Whey protein concentrate, Calcium caseinate, Nutrim (hydrolyzed oat flour), Cocoa powder, High oleic sunflower and/or safflower oil, Fructooligosaccharides, Natural and artificial flavors, Cellulose Gum, Cellulose gel, Vitamins and minerals (Dipotassium phosphate, magnesium oxide, ascorbic acid, vitamin E acetate, niacinamide, ferric orthophosphate, zinc oxide, D-calcium pantothenate, copper gluconate, manganese sulfate, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin, vitamin A palmitate, thiamin mononitrate, folic acid, biotin, potassium iodide, chromium polynicotinate, phytonadione, sodium molybdate, sodium selenate, cholecalciferol, cyanocobalmin), L-Glutamine, Sodium caseinate, Sucralose, Xanthan gum, Carrageenan, Flaxseed oil.

Product Features

Slim Body Matrix Shakes come with a "One-Gulp GuaranteeTM" which allows for a full refund of purchase price if unused portion is returned within 30 days. The site states that the refund will be issued within 48 hours of receipt of returned product. Free shipping is offered for orders over $50, which means any purchase of the shakes will include free shipping. Slim Body Matrix Shakes, when used as directed, are not accessible to anyone on a limited budget. It would take 2 bottles of shake mix for 30 days of use, totaling $120. They do offer a bulk discount if you purchase 4 or more bottles, dropping the price down to $47.96 per bottle.


  • Slim Body Matrix Shakes contain many vitamins and minerals.
  • 6-week trial offer is available on the official website.


  • These shakes are a complete meal replacement program which may leave you feeling hungry.
  • There isn't an appetite suppressant listed in the ingredients.
  • There are tons of similar shakes available.


Meal replacement shakes really took off in the 1980s when Slim Fast first showed up. Since then, many others have tried to replicate that success. The Slim Body Matrix Shakes from Josh Bezoni don't have a lot that makes them stand out. We like how they encourage 5 mini-meals per day and offer a 6-week trial program though. If you have had success with similar products, you might want to give these a shot but we recommend adding a thermogenic based weight loss supplement as well for maximum results.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

Somebody necessarily assist to make significantly posts I’d state. That is the first time I frequented your website page and up to now? I amazed with the research you made to make this particular put up incredible. Excellent job!

Your review is really great. Your comparison is really great. I am taking Nuvoryn to lose weight and it help me a lot to loose my weight. Thank You.

I am tired of programs like yours that promise great results at the expense of all the additonal stuff you want to sell me.

I have no doubt that if I followed you program, it would probably work, but it was sold on the idea of “buy my book” and you will have all the information you will need. All I wanted was the book and you want to sell me all this other stuff. There can not be much of value in the book if I have to purchase all the other info and sixty some dollars for a book is a bit much.

I have been trying to get a refund for close to a month. They were quick to get back to me on how to get a refund but since then I have emailed them 3 times and have not heard a thing.

Josh, where do I order the vanilla cake mix smoothie? Is this the same as the cake mix batter Slim Body shake? And where do I order the cake mix batter Slim Body shake? I can’t find these listed on your products site. Thank you. Sincerely, Letitia.

I suffer with colitis and cannot do any shakes. Are there any meal replacement bars that I can use instead?

I odered your book but used the wrong zip code the correct zip code 97541. I also tried to track it with U.P.S. they said no trace.

Where can I buy the Slim Body Matrix Shakes??? CaloriePerHour doesn’t have a buy option and neither do you! What gives???

truth in infomercials

don’t need to order to know that if josh, who was fined by the State of Colorado, is involved, watch your credit card. Today he is a nutritionist, yesterday a scientific researcher, tomorrow, who knows. One thing that won’t change, he is an infomercial leach who will suck your pockets dry if you don’t watch out. (in my humble opinion)

I would like to recieve the products I ordered the Hard copies of book, DVD”s and special report

I have been unable to get a response to my questions about: mini meals, protein portion, vegetable portion, fruit portion and scheduling or spacing of meals.

I had RNY Gastric Bypass Surgery in 2006. I have lost my weight but I have ALOT of BELLY fat left. I am guessing about 10 lbs. Would you recommend the BFF for me. The only other alternative for me would be plastic surgery.

I’m dissapointed with Josh Bezoni’s lack of customer support. After purchasing the expensive BFF program and accelerator kit on 5 April, I emailed an enquiry for which i didn’t receive any reply and I then resent the enquiry which of course wasn’t replied to until now. There hasn’t been a single email from him either. How am I expected to get a refund when there is no way to communicate with him???? Where can I report such cases?

If you go onto facebook you can friend him, he answers questions thru there. Good Luck

I ordered the vanilla and they shipped chocolate. I complained and they sent me a free replacement Vanilla. While I waited, I tried the chocolate and couldn’t drink it. The vanilla came and I tried it and didn’t like it. It was just too thick & sweet. I didn’t say anything, my son came home and made a shake and said he didn’t like it either. We didn’t say anything, my husband came home & we made him one and he said he didn’t like it that it had a bitter aftertaste. So, now I have TWO 2lb containers that no one will drink! I sure wish you could taste test!

I have ordered and read the book, but where do you go to order the matrix shakes and belly thin xp?

I purchased the product for 39.95 but the download did NOT work…..how can I get it in hard copy?????

I have ordered the 7 day belly blast program on 9/29,how many weeks does it take to come in? thanks Lisa

Josh, if I order the book, will I actually receive a book or do I have to download it? That’s such a hassle for me

I called the company to reorder the shakes at 1-800-380-9840, I’ve been drinking the shakes for a few months now and so far I’m pleased with the results.

how do I re order matrix shakes
