This is my BioTrust Low Carb protein review: Click Here for the BioTrust Low Carb official website
BioTrust is a new supplement company entering the online marketplace, and I was excited to review their new protein powder mostly because it was all natural and very low in carbohydrates. The company BioTrust has been receiving a ton of hype recently with their launch and I want to make sure that their protein powder was good enough to meet my approval. So as BioTrust opened for business I immediately placed an order for their Low Carb protein powder.
I’ve honestly tried around 100 different kinds of protein powders in my day with the vast majority of them either tasting like garbage, containing horrible ingredients and/or are way overpriced. I usually still get a few different kinds of protein powders per month in the mail from companies wanting me to try out their product. I’m usually always disappointed, and I would never recommend those horrible and underperforming protein powders to anybody that I know.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the package for my BioTrust Low Carb protein powder was that the container was pretty small. I’m a pretty big guy at 6’3” and over 200 pounds so I usually consume a lot of the stuff over the course of a month. Since I would require more servings than the average person I went ahead and ordered two containers so that they would last me the entire month. Although, I would think for most people they wouldn’t need quite this much in the same time frame.
After mixing my first serving of the Low Carb protein I found that it mixed pretty well in my shaker cup and that there wasn’t any weird residue left behind. This may sound strange, but I have seen quite a few protein powders on the market that are so packed with artificial ingredients that they leave a strange residue behind them. One of the reasons BioTrust Low Carb won me over is because they have no artificial ingredients, and instead use stevia to naturally sweeten their products. At first I was also concerned that this wouldn’t taste very good because some all-natural supplements have it rough getting the taste down because they can’t load it with sugar. I was happy to find that the protein tasted really well mixed with good old-fashioned water, and I didn’t need to put anything extra and like fruit to make it taste better.
The taste of any protein powder is very critical because if it tastes like dirt then you’re not going to want to use it, and if you don’t want to use it then you just wasted a lot of your money. So even though BioTrust’s Low Carb protein powder doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners or sugars they still manage to make a great tasting product that I found myself craving for throughout the day. Just to let you know that the protein also tastes very good when combined with other supplements such as Athletic Greens and fruit. I also sometimes like to toss in 3/4 cup of wild organic blueberries to add in some antioxidants and flavor to any protein that I have.
Another gripe that I had with BioTrust is the protein powder is only available online so you can’t just walk down to your local nutrition shop and pick up a tub of it. Sometimes I’m so busy that it’s hard for me to plan ahead so placing an order online well before I finish the protein powder doesn’t happen too often. I also never like paying for shipping and handling so this also held me back from ordering more BioTrust Low Carb. With these small gripes aside I found that it’s really a good idea to go ahead and set myself reminders to order it every month because I really enjoy the taste and it has the lowest amount of carbohydrates compared to any other protein powder on the market that’s all-natural.
So why is it so important that you consume a low carbohydrate protein powder? If you’re trying to lose fat then controlling your carb intake is going to be very very important because too many carbs essentially equals more fat gain. Also the BioTrust Low Carb protein powder has only 1g sugar which somehow found its way in there along with the 24g of protein per serving. Also keep in mind that their protein contains 4g of high quality fiber, which will also help to enhance your fat burning metabolism.
Another benefit I found using BioTrust Low Carb was the digestive enzyme blend they’ve included called ProHydrolase, which will enhance your body’s ability to breakdown the protein so it can more easily get absorbed and sent into the muscle. I’ve never seen another protein powder that also contained an enzyme blend to enhance that the digestive process. So if you have an underperforming digestive tract then I’d definitely give BioTrust Low Carb a try, and even if you don’t then you’ll reap the benefits of having these included in your protein powder.
One thing I tell my clients all the time it is that you pay for what you get. If you want a hire a dirt cheap trainer you can expect dirt cheap results as well. There is a reason that the best people in the world charge a lot for what they do and this protein powder is no different. Yes it’s all more expensive than most protein powders on the market. But it’s also loaded with all natural ingredients and it’s processed the best way possible. If you go to Target or Walmart looking for protein powder you’ll find most of those cheap proteins have been denatured from high heat processing. This essentially means that the protein your consuming has severely dropped in quality since it was heated so high.
Overall I found that I really like BioTrust is low-carb protein powder and there’s not a shadow of doubt in my mind that I would recommend it to all of my clients. It’s really a great protein powder and it’s worth the extra trouble to order it online. It tastes great, is all natural, low in carbohydrates and as an added bonus it comes in a cool blue container. Out of all the protein powders are tried over the past decade or so I found this one by BioTrust to be the best overall, and I’m confident this is the one I would be using for years to come.
