Bio X4 is a 4-in-1 weight management probiotic created by Nucific, who have a range of products, that they claim are backed by science to help us operate at our best.
The company says that they stick to four fundamental principles, which are applied to all their products. They claim to only use potent ingredients that are supported by clinical studies, the products are quality tested to ensure potency and purity. They are earth friendly, by using renewable energy and recyclable materials, and lastly all their products are made in California. Can Bio X4 live up to the hype?
After going over all the information we have collected it would seem that Nucific Bio X4 may help some people improve their digestive health but there is NO accepted evidence that it will help with weight loss.
If your digestive system is functioning normally there seems to be no reason to take this supplement.
If you do have digestive problems, you should visit your doctor rather than trust a rather expensive and unproven OTC supplement. Although, the fact that the company is run by trained medical professionals is encouraging, unfortunately there is no sufficient evidence to suggest that this supplement will be safe.
We like green tea extract for weight loss, as it is included in a lot of products nowadays and has been proven to help with weight loss goals.
Nucific seem to be a reputable company and we love that they offer a guarantee on their products, something a lot of other companies could learn from.
While Bio X4 is marketed very slickly, especially with the video marketing featuring Dr Amy Lee, the jury is still out on Probiotics and weight loss. Is it worth taking something that some evidence may cause weight gain? We feel that the best bet, if you want to experiment, is take consume a natural Yoghurt every now and then.
What is Bio X4?
Trying to lose weight can be a tough journey but there are some things than can make it easier, such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Sometimes a dietary supplement can make all the difference in the world and Bio X4 says that it is designed to help:
- Control hunger cravings
- Boost the metabolism and burn fat
- Give you more energy and nutrients from the food you eat
- Make you feel more confident without gas and bloating after eating
Bio X4 contains 4 blended compounds that work together in order to attack weight loss issues. This is perfect for people who would like a supplement that has no lactose, no fillers, uses 100% pure ingredients and vegetarian capsules as well. What’s not to like?
The principle ingredient is the probiotic blend, which is said to contain 4 billion healthy bacteria per capsule, which is a heck of a lot, and is composed of a Lactobacillus blend and a Bifidobacterium blend. Probiotics are important for our health and our bodies could not do without these colonies of the live bacteria and yeasts founds naturally in our bodies. Lactobacillus is a bacteria that is naturally present in the stomach, which produces vitamin K and Lactase (which breaks down Lactose, the sugars in milk products). Bifidobacterium is a type of bacteria present in the colon flora in animals as well as in the gastrointestinal tract in humans.
Since the mid 1990s, probiotics and supplements containing them have been advertised as a way to benefit the digestion system and help with IBS, eczema and oral health. However the probiotic supplements and foods do not have any medical backing behind them, which could be a cause for concern.
As well as a probiotic blend, Bio X4 also contains a digestive enzyme blend. Digestive enzymes are present in the body naturally and break down food molecules so that they can be absorbed by the body and taking a supplement including them is said to improve digestion. Bio X4 also contains green tea extract, which is well known for its beneficial effects upon health and weight loss. There is some evidence that suggests green tea can increase the speed of the metabolism, making you lose weight more effectively.
The final ingredient in Bio X4 is Caralluma Fimbriata, a cactus extract that may help cause feelings of satiety to prevent over eating and food cravings.
Bio X4 Concerns:
- You may not notice any effects from this supplement.
- No independent customer feedback.
- Not safe for everyone. May introduce infection if you have a weakened immune system. Could be dangerous if you don’t realise.
How does it work?
The manufacturers claim that with Bio X4 you can:
Take control of your appetite again, enhance your metabolism & digestion, and feel better than ever.
The way that each ingredient blend works is explained:
- Digestive enzymes that help get you the maximum amount of nutrients out of everything you eat.
- 12 Billion Colony-Forming Units (CFUs) of probiotics to rebalanace your digestive tract with healthy gut bacteria.
- The appetite suppressing power of Caralluma Fimbriata.
- EGCG, sourced from green tea extract, to help support your metabolism.
To utilize Bio X4 to the best of it’s ability you have to take 1 capsule with each meal. When taken 3 times daily, an individual receives 12 billion CFU’s. More may be taken as needed. Supplementing each meal with digestive help that assists in processing your food and extracting the maximum amount of nutrients gives your body the tools it requires to operate at its peak level of performance.
Will this product work?
When we look back over the facts we don’t see how or why Bio X4 could help you lose weight, as there is no evidence for probiotics and digestive enzyme supplements aiding weight loss. While the Green Tea and Caralluma Fimbriata look promising, the ingredient amounts seem inadequate.
Probiotics for weight loss remain largely untrialled and untested. This form of medical science is in the early stages and nobody knows for sure if probiotics are generally good to take in supplement form. In addition, they are not suitable for everyone as they come with the risk of introducing bacteria into your system.
Not only are the weight loss claims unproven, but also the claims about digestive enzymes are also unproven. We cannot see Nucific Bio X4 doing much for your health or your weight loss.
What are the ingredients and are they safe?
Nucific Bio X4 is a probiotic supplement that looks to address digestive issues as well as help you lose weight. Serving size is equal to one capsule.
Probiotic blend (4 billion):
- Lactobacillus acidophilus blend (L. acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. planterum): Lactobacillus acidophilus is present in different parts of the body including intestines, mouth and vagina where it helps protect against harmful bacteria and infection. It may help to protect against coronary heart disease. It may help improve lipid metabolism. However, it does require further evidence to prove these claims.
- Bifidobacterium blend (B. lactis, B. animalis): This probiotic bacterium is found in some dairy products (including breast milk) and may help digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome.
Digestive enzyme blend (88mg):
- Amylase: This enzyme is present in our saliva and helps us digest carbs such as rice and potatoes. Some ingredients – such as Kelp and Garcinia Cambogia prevent this digestive process and some people believe that doing this stops carbs from being absorbed by the body and turning to fat. Other people believe that digestive enzyme supplements help the body’s digestion and helps weight loss.
- Bromelain: This natural enzyme is found in pineapple. According to clinical research, it may be effective at helping to reduce pain and inflammation.
- Lipase: This is a digestive enzyme, which is made in the pancreas and is lacking in some people who suffer from medical conditions such as celiac or crohns disease. Lipase breaks down, transports fats, and is essential to the digestive process. It may help with digestive issues such as indigestion and gas.
Weight Management blend:
- Green Tea (100mg): Clinical research has found that green tea has proven health benefits and the antioxidants (EGCG and polyphenols) found to have anti obesity and fat burning properties because of the effects upon the metabolism. Contains caffeine.
Craving control blend (166mg):
- Caralluma Fimbriata: Promising although unproven ingredient for weight loss that may reduce appetite.
We covered this native Indian succulent plant in a previous investigation and were impressed. However, it requires further evidence because testing has been very limited.

How about Bio X4 testimonials?
As far as user reviews go we have been unable to locate any reviews on the official site, but we did locate some on Amazon and the findings were interesting. Here are a few of them:
I tried one whole bottle and saw no results at all. No weight loss, no change in digestion, no change in appetite. Only benefit was it encouraged me to drink more water! I purchased directly through Bio-X4 which cost much less than on Amazon. Scam! Wish I could show no stars.
I bought the Bio-x4 from the company’s website – Nucific. I took it diligently for about 3 weeks. I did not experience any positive effects, e.g., of probiotics. However, my sleep became more restless, and I started experiencing some water retention. I’m returning the product back to the company and hope to receive my money back. Don’t waste your time and money on this product!
This company seems strange and perhaps shady. I bought Bio X4 because it sounded all natural; I thought even if I didn’t lose the weight I wanted to lose, the probiotics and green tea extract would still give me benefits. I bought several bottles because every time I went to check out a new, “better” deal would pop up. That should have been a red flag. As someone else already noted, the Google reviews also seem stacked in Nucific’s favor. All of the results are favorable to Nucific, but all are on web pages completely unfamiliar to me. When I ordered the product I thought it was because the product was so new, but months later, the Google results are still like that. I ended up with heartburn that I believe is related to probiotics (I admittedly could be wrong about this but have heard some people get heartburn from certain types of probiotics), so I tried to return the bottles I had not opened. Unfortunately the 90-day grace period was over, so I have lost significant money on my Nucific purchase with nothing noticeably gained on my end. The e-mails from the company are also strange, as are the recipes. Hard to explain but something seems fake or “off” about this company. I would not buy their products again.
Going by these reviews it seems like Bio X4 does not help with weight loss and it is making people doubt the company.
