Below we take an in-depth look at BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 to see how it could benefit the consumer, and to see whether or not this product actually works as the manufacturers claim it does.
BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is a probiotic supplement that is designed to enhance bowel regularity and support immune health. The manufacturers also suggest heavily on the sales page that the supplement can aid weight loss; of the numerous different probiotics used in this supplement, only one has been linked with aiding weight loss, in a single preliminary study, and it only appears to aid weight loss in women.
The main reported side effect of BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is increased bowel movements, with some people finding the increase to be quite dramatic. Flatulence and other digestive problems, including diarrhoea are other side effects commonly caused by probiotic supplements such as BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0.
Depending upon how many bottles are being purchased at once, the price of BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 can vary significantly, as discounts are given for bulk purchases. The prices are given per bottle, even when ordering in bulk, and it appears that consumers are not expressly shown the final, total cost of their purchases until much later on in the ordering process.
A single bottle costs $49.00. Three bottles cost a total of $132, but are advertised as ‘costing $44 per bottle’. An order of 6 bottles costs a total of $234, but the deal is advertised as ‘$39 per bottle’.
Even with the bulk discounts, the cost of BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is relatively high.
Overall, we are not impressed by BioTrust or by BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0. Whilst probiotics have some benefits and can contribute to general good health, we believe that BioTrust overstate the benefits of this supplement (and their supplement range in general). Probiotics can be incredibly beneficial for some people, such as anyone who is taking antibiotics, as probiotics can help to replenish ‘good’ bacteria levels, preventing antibiotic-associated diarrhoea (ADD) and IBS. There is not enough evidence to prove that probiotics can improve your immune system; the European Food Safety Authority has even ruled that companies advertising and selling in Europe can no longer claim that probiotic supplements will ‘boost your immune system’, as there is no proof to support this claim.
There are lots of customer complaints and poor reviews on the BBB website about BioTrust. It is clear that their ordering process needs simplifying, as there are lots of customers who have received more bottles than they were aware they had ordered, and they had also been charged a lot more than anticipated; sometimes this difference in billing is as much as several hundred dollars!
One excellent thing about BioTrust Nutrition is that they offer a 1-year money back guarantee. However, as customers need to contact the company to arrange a return before they send the parcel, customers are often talked out of getting their refund. As one former employee stated, the company’s policy is for customer service representatives to always ‘save the sale’ and avoid a refund wherever possible. Anyone who does want a refund from BioTrust Nutrition just has to persevere when on the phone with the company, and remain firm when asking for a refund. Keeping empty bottles is also useful if you feel that you may need to ask for a refund.
Overall, we do not recommend BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 to our readers!

BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is a probiotic supplement that will supposedly improve digestion, help your immune system (by helping to suppress the growth of bad bacteria and pathogens that can cause illness), and promote ‘bowel regularity’. The manufacturers also suggest that the product could help to boost fat loss in the body as well. BioTrust often offer this product as an add-on whilst purchasing other products from their official website, but it is also available to purchase separately.
BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is manufactured by BioTrust Nutrition, who is based in Austin, Texas, in the USA.
BioTrust boast on their official website that they have an A+ rating on the Better Business Bureau website, and that they are a BBB accredited business. However, of the 19 customer reviews that have been left on the BBB website, only two are positive, one is neutral, and the remaining 16 are all negative. The BBB has also received 39 complaints about the company.
Simply take two Pro-X10 capsules daily, one capsule with breakfast and one capsule with dinner. Keep refrigerated after opening to maintain maximum potency.
It appears from the company review section of Indeed.com (where current and former employees can review their experiences) that at least some of the customer service representatives work from home, rather than in an actual call centre. One review from an ex-employee also suggested heavily that customer service representatives are trained and instructed to do anything to ‘save the sale’ and avoid a refund:
Dishonest practices towards customers… Save the sale even when the MANY “glitches” that happened on customer orders were ridiculous amounts of money. It got to point where I stopped offering them and saving sales because it just made me feel dishonest
The manufacturers of BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 claim that the product has the following benefits:
Through patented microencapsulation technology, Pro-X10 delivers up to TEN TIMES more healthy bacteria to your gut compared to traditional probiotic products where the overwhelming majority of the cells are DEAD before ever reaching their final destination
Simply put, dead probiotics don’t and can’t work, and as mentioned earlier, not only are these products a complete waste of your time and hard-earned money, but much more importantly they are robbing you of the critically important health benefits of probiotics, while continuing to leave your body in a sub-optimal state.
In addition to that, Pro-X10:
One of the major claims that BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 is that the supplement can boost your immune system, but there is actually a lack of clinical support to prove this. In fact, there is such a consistent lack of evidence that The European Food Safety Authority ruled that adverts for probiotic yoghurts can no longer claim that the products “boost your immune system”.
The NHS also states the following about the supposed benefits of probiotic supplements and products:
There’s a lack of evidence for probiotics benefiting the immune system, and research found that in healthy children, probiotic supplements had no effect on antibody levels, days of fever and number of infections.
There’s no reason why you should need to ‘rebalance’ your gut bacteria if you’re already perfectly healthy, despite the claims in some marketing material.
Probiotics can help to regulate the digestive system, somewhat, especially if the consumer has been taking antibiotics. Probiotics have been found to be useful in helping prevent antibiotics-associated diarrhoea.
So, overall, probiotic supplements such as BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 do have some benefits. However, there is not enough clinical support available to match all of the dramatic claims made by BioTrust Nutrition about the supplement and its benefits!
The ingredients found in BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 are detailed below.
The most common side effects of BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0 appear to be digestive, including flatulence, increased bowel movements and diarrhoea. However, everyone reacts differently to probiotic supplements, and some people experience a reduction in flatulence.
Consult your doctor if you are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, before purchase. Not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for children.
We were able to find numerous reviews about BioTrust Pro-X10 2.0, the majority of which were positive. However, we also located numerous customer reviews and complaints about the company in general, especially about their sales and billing practices.
Ordered 3 bottles of a product with their e-mail advertising, then they said I could get 6 cheaper so I thought I ordered 6 bottles but actually they charged me for nine bottles! not only that I was charged for bottles that they were advertising that I didn’t order! I had to call at 8 a.m. to cancel the order. She said the order was cancelled. However I received the order anyway and charged $525.00 for what they sent! I originally it should have been $175.00! This is a scam or incompetent website programmers!
For me the results were overnight. I took it twice as the label said, and at night I woke up with a terrible pain in my stomach followed by a couple of runs to the bathroom. It works, but the sudden addition of the bacteria to the body can cause painful spasms the first few days. However, for a person like me with severe IBS-C, it works like a charm and very quickly too.
Overpriced IMO. There seems to be other probiotics that have similar claims. Probably won’t buy again because the price is crazy.
I bought these expensive probiotics off of the BioTrust website to protect myself from acquiring a C. Difficile infection, a potential complication after being on clindamycin for a MRSA infection. It seemed like a good preventative move. I took them for 4 months and gave a month’s supply to a friend to try out as well. While on these pills, I gained 25 pounds. I went up from 110 to 135 lbs. My friend, who only took a month supply, gained 20 pounds. When she reported back to me, we realised that our gain in weight was likely due to these probiotics. I have gained 5 lbs and become lactose intolerant from being on long bouts of antibiotics in the past, but when my microbiome would normalise over the following few months, the minor weight gain and lactose intolerance would go away on its own. However, after taking the BioTrust probiotics for 4 months, that 25 pounds of weight gain would not budge for 16 months, no matter how healthy I ate (I was not a super healthy eater beforehand). Basically, the weight did not begin to leave me until I took Augmentin for a sinus infection. The antibiotic cleared out whatever bacteria was in the BioTrust probiotic that caused me to gain weight, and I’ve been gradually returning to my normal weight, with only 8 pounds to go. Be cautious when taking this probiotic and report here if you get weight gain from it so we can know if this is a common problem.
I’ve been using Pro x-10 for over a year after trying much weaker probiotics. This is the best.
I did a lot of research, before buying, trying to find the best probiotic and BioTrust Pro-x10 is the one I concluded to be the best. I’ve been using this probiotic now for quite some time and am very happy with it. This is a reorder and unless someone could convince me of another one being better, this has been and will continue to be my choice.
