Our Story

Message from The Founder, Barton Scott:

Our story begins with our Founder, a Chemical Engineer who always had sharp cognitive function, began to suffer memory loss and mental fatigue. How could this be, at such an early age? To make matters worse, tragedy struck at the same time, when he unfortunately lost his Mother.

After taking many supplements during this time frame, nothing was working. Faced with adversity and looming health issues, this is when he decided that he must pursue solutions. 

He grew frustrated with how mineral supplements lacked effectiveness and absorption into the body rendering most products in the market useless. He set out to fix the problem, using his background in Chemical Engineering and experience as a nutritionist, he was able to identify the issues with the current offerings and applied a solution based on sound science.

Through research, and many trials and errors, he realized if you can get mineral particles small enough to absorb into our cells, that was going to be the winning formula for effectiveness. That's where he applied nanotechnology to minerals, and developed a solution that makes the minerals we sell today completely bioavailable - the impact of which we can see during our testing protocols.

It was then that he set out to create what today is Upgraded Formulas, founded with with maximum bioavailability and measurable absorption to ensure you are getting results.*

In addition, he created a groundbreaking hair testing kit that identifies mineral deficiencies and verifies the products work. The products and testing have become an effective love letter to anyone who is struggling with their health, or simply want to take their performance to a new level.

Upgraded is focused on identifying and optimizing mineral deficiencies with a new category of supplementation called Nano Minerals along with hair testing to increase health span, focus, sleep quality, and slow down accelerated aging. 

Our mission is to support you and your family by creating, highly effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products on the market today.

We use “The best that science has to offer" to create supplements that actually do what they say to help you “Live Optimally.” It's the guide-star for what we do from a product basis.

Our hair test kit is a game-changer. It's ideal for determining your heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies – together this bundle of testing and targeted supplementation in a form that actually gets absorbed provides support for you to live a healthier, happier, more productive life.

These supplements are directly absorbed into the body’s cells immediately because they bypass digestion completely for a massive improvement in absorption over regular liquids, pills and powders. 

This is a new approach. This is NEW mineral nanoparticle technology. We are in the business of creating mineral products that optimize and maximize the power of the human body and mind when given a form that the body can understand.

We have accomplished this while keeping our products free of all the flavors and fillers, the artificial colors and stabilizers common in others brands’ products that can act to clog up your system and make you feel tired or sluggish, instead of happy, clear-headed and energized.

Upgraded Formulas gives back because we believe in impact, in making positive change. 

We believe in helping powerful missions which is why we donate an ever-increasing percentage of our profits to Charity:Water which provides sustainably clean and accessible water to millions. 

Every company should stand for something. At Upgraded Formulas, we believe in doing our part and in making great products and individualized testing for you and those you care about.
