Episode Summary

Barton Scott and I met at a wachuma experience some time ago, and the more I learned about his company, the more I realized that I needed to have him on the Wealthy Wellthy podcast to share his knowledge with my listeners. Coming from a chemical engineering background, Barton knew that something strange was going on when, as a college athlete, his body was being depleted of nutrients even though he was taking plenty of supplements every day. His suspicions were confirmed when tests came back revealing that he was deficient in a lot of the same minerals he was taking every day, meaning that there was an issue with absorption. He soon realized that this was not an isolated situation but that many people who take supplements of certain minerals never actually receive the intended benefits.

Barton started Upgraded Formulas as a solution to this widespread problem, focusing first on doing hair analysis rather than blood to assess clients’ health trends over the past 6 weeks, and then using a technology Barton created to make the minerals able to be absorbed without digestion. On this episode, Barton gives me a consultation based on the results of my hair analysis, and the findings were very intriguing to say the least. He gave me several recommendations of supplements to take or stop taking to get my minerals and heavy metals into the optimal ranges. I really appreciated Barton joining me on the show and I hope that you found his insights helpful for your own wellbeing!
