Save Money On Supplements
Our hair test results will show you the vitamins and nutrients you have in deficiency or excess. We've had many customers purchasing hundreds of dollars of vitamins only to discover that they weren't treating the root cause of their health issues. You'll know exactly what you need to do to put your health back on track.
How else will you know if you actually need to be taking any of the supplements you're paying for? In some cases, hair test results reveal they can actually be harming your health because you were already overloaded. Calcium is a common mineral that you may be overconsuming.
In that case, you would be paying for a supplement that is costing you your vitality, energy, and good mood. So what do we recommend?
Well, it's true that getting a hair mineral analysis test is one of the best things you can do for your health. In fact, these hair tests are more accurate than blood or urine tests for your mineral deficiency, heavy metal toxicity, and metabolism.
Your hair sample can reveal a lot about your health. Hair test results include your levels of nutritional elements such as Calcium, Zinc, and Magnesium. They’ll show your levels of heavy metals, and any extra elements inside your hair that reflect your body’s current state.

Hi Barton, I know you guys recently asked if anyone could share their journey to health using your products, so I figured I’d send you guys a note about my journey.
It may sound extreme, but your products and services have changed my life in way that's tough to describe, but I’ll do my best. I’ll spare you the details, but for as long as I can remember I’ve struggled with my weight and confidence. I’ve tried every diet, exercise program and supplement there is out there, and no matter what I did to lose the weight I’d always regain it. I had this fatigue and sugar cravings that left me feeling like a zombie rummaging through the cupboards at 11PM most nights and always sabotaged my weight loss. I was always embarrassed to ever mention I was on a new diet to anyone because I knew what they were thinking without them saying a thing. So when I started looking into the ketogenic diet, I didn’t mention it to a soul.
I first found Upgraded Formulas through your “How to defeat the sugar boogeyman” blog and kept poking around your website. Since my cravings and weight loss were front of mind, and I liked what I read I decided to get a Hair Mineral Analysis Test to see if there was something I was deficient in. When I first got my test results it felt like I was trying to understand Japanese, so I decided to get a consultation to help me understand things better. I can’t explain how helpful it was to get the consultation because Kelsey helped me clearly understand what I was deficient in and helped me build a plan. She even gave me a few things to look out for on my keto diet as well which really helped.
Armed with the right minerals and feeling solid with my Keto diet things started to click about three weeks into my new plan. My fatigue started to disintegrate, and I had more energy than I can even remember, and the cravings that were always lurking around the corner were nowhere to be found. I finally had the energy to start walking each day and started with 15 minutes. Then I worked my way up to 30-45 minutes per day.
Because I actually enjoy eating keto, and my cravings were gone it felt simple and easy to stick with a diet for the first time ever. When I did follow up hair tests and consultations to stay on top of my deficiencies Kelsey regularly would tell me I no longer needed to supplement certain minerals anymore. With a combination of your testing, guidance and minerals I’ve dropped 32lbs and have been able to keep it off for over 13 months, which has never happened for me. As the weight came off my confidence went up and I’ve never felt better head to toe!
I’ll be forever grateful to the crew at Upgraded Formulas because you helped me so much and gave me guidance in a time when I was feeling stuck and needed it the most!
I have suffered from insomnia and low thyroid for a year. It was so amazing to finally find out why I have had these issues. I loved my consultation, and doing the hair test only took about 15 minutes. I have had a great experience thus far and highly recommend this test for addressing your health issues--hair results are a much better outcome to look at than blood sometimes.
