Upgrade Your Brain Power, Health and Libido with Barton Scott – Episode 399

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

“The world is more and more toxic each month, each year, now since the Industrial Revolution. When you start to look at this from a macro and micro perspective, I see why this is such a problem… All you have to do is deplete one mineral and now your body’s working harder to keep your blood clean and alkalized. It’s a wonder to me that we do as well as we do; based on how much our body has to work to keep us healthy.”

Barton Scott is a chemical engineer, who combined his background with his experience as a nutritionist and researcher, and founded Upgraded Formulas. Barton is passionate about helping people combat the stressors of daily life, the toxicity of the modern world, the utter lack of nutrients, and the mineral absorption issues that we all face, and he has made it his mission to reduce suffering by increasing the public’s understanding of the human body’s interrelationships.
