Nucific Utilizes Stock Images

Nucific.com utilizes stock images, instead of unique images. For example, the “Is Air Frying Healthy? Here’s What You Need To Know” image is a Shutterstock image. The “Sweet Potato Vs Regular Potato: Are Sweet Potatoes Healthier Than Regular Potatoes? Image is copyrighted from the official Llywodraeth Cymru Welsh Government (businesswales.gov) website.

BBB-Accredited Nucific

Nucific is accredited by BBB, with an “A+” rating. The customer reviews provide consumers with enough information to determine if they should do business with Nucific. It is important to note, the 1- and 2-star reviews are overshadowed by a boatload of 5-star reviews. It is difficult to validate the legitimacy of customer reviews. However, we recommend reading a mixture of reviews, instead of basing your decision on the 5-star reviews.

It is worth noting, some of the 5-star reviews contain symbols, which makes one question if they are truly legitimate. It is obvious some of the reviews are fake because they are duplicated. There are multiple customer reviews posted on the same date, which is highly unlikely.

One particular review, posted on December 14, 2021, claims Nucific charged her for two additional bottles without her authorization.

Nucific BBB Complaints

A BBB complaint filed on November 23, 2020, claimed to have received additional bottles of BioX4 without her authorization. Nucific did not question the customer complaint, just authorized a refund.

Nucific has a history of 111 customer complaints handled by BBB. All the complaints are very similar – refund issues, unauthorized credit card charges, upselling, and aggressive business practices.

Trustpilot Reviews

Like BBB, Trustpilot has hundreds of 4- and 5-star reviews that overshadow the 1- and 2-star reviews.

Afterword – Biox4 Scam

Is Biox4 a scam? There is no evidence to legally describe Nucific Bio-X4 as a scam. However, numerous BBB and Trustpilot reviews are enough to say the vendor has a history of upselling its customers.

There is no evidence the 5-star customer reviews posted on Trustpilot and BBB are legit. A red flag worth noting some of the reviews contained unique symbols and duplications. The explanation may be that Nucific purchased the reviews, or the customers unknowingly posted their reviews several times.

Nucific has a large volume of customer reviews, many of which were posted on the same day in the past month. There are nearly 600 BBB reviews and almost 900 Trustpilot reviews for Nucific. It is a fact most customers do not write reviews unless they have a poor experience.

A business search via the California Secretary of State website did not find a Nucific business filing. The physical address listed in the BBB filing is not connected to Nucific via Google Maps. The building belongs to Keller Williams, which does not have Nucific listed on its website.
