Mineral Magic – Correcting Mineral Deficiency for Disease Prevention and Optimal Health | Barton Scott

The Science of Self-Healing Hosted by Dr. Sharon Stills With Barton Scott

About Barton Scott

Barton Scott is a chemical engineer, nutritionist, and the founder of Upgraded Formulas, a wellness nanotech company for performance and longevity with a focus on correcting mineral deficiencies. Barton pioneered a new category of supplementation to increase healthspan, focus, blood sugar management, reduce the impact of chronic health issues, and improve sleep quality.


Through research, and many trials and errors, Barton realized if you can get mineral particles small enough to absorb into your cells, that was going to be the winning formula for effectiveness. That's where he applied nano minerals to his formulations and developed a solution that supposedly makes the minerals up to 99.9% bioavailable for measurable absorption. It was then that he set out to create what today is Upgraded Formulas, founded to ensure maximum bioavailability and measurable absorption for proven results.

In addition, Barton created a hair testing kit that identifies mineral deficiencies and verifies that his products work. His test also identifies heavy metal toxicity.

Episode Highlights with Barton Scott

  • Through his own personal journey, Barton Scott was led to start investigating the role of mineral deficiency in disease and health.

  • Magnesium is important to over 800 functions in the body.  It plays a role in all mitochondrial function, and a host of others.  Being able to absorb magnesium is vitally important to optimal health and reversing many diseases.

  • Minerals which are most important when dealing with brain fog:

  • Boron

  • Maganese

  • Phosphorus

  • Selenium

  • Iodine

  • Baseline trace minerals

  • It is not possible to get all minerals needed from food alone, sadly, due to the depletion of our soil.  Therefore, supplementation is necessary.

  • For optimal health, it is important to: supplement, and test using hair mineral analysis.

  • Many people do not know how to accurately interpret a hair mineral analysis.  Barton Scott offers a practitioner training course in proper interpretation.

  • Magnesium that is tested via a hair test is magnesium that has been absorbed into the tissue, and has been built into organs throughout the body. 

  • A hair analysis will give an accurate picture of the relationships and ratios of minerals, which gives a much more comprehensive assessment of any conditions present.

  • The zinc to copper ratio can determine whether a person is clinically cold, or emotionally closed off, and can also play a large factor in hormonal and gender-role expression. 

  • Estrogen is governed by copper, while testosterone and progesterone are governed by zinc, which activates 30 enzymatic pathways that we know of.

  • Barton Scott recommends to get a hair mineral analysis done quarterly for optimal health!

  • Without the minerals that activate your enzyme pathways in the body, vitamins are almost useless… it’s just the way the body works.

  • Testing for heavy metal toxicity is even more accurate when done with a hair analysis. One of the best ways to eliminate heavy metals from the body is by using proper mineral balances to prevent metals from accumulating within the body in the first place.
