Barton Scott | How to replenish electrolytes and minerals on the keto diet KKP: 226
Play • 1 hr 4 min

Today, I am blessed to have here with me, Founder of Upgraded Formulas and a Chemical Engineer, Barton Scott.

Barton always had sharp cognitive function, but he 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 could 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 maximum bioavailability and measurable absorption to ensure you are getting results.

In this episode, Barton Scott opens the show explaining the inspiration behind his company, Upgraded Formulas. Unfortunately, typical supplements and our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals. Barton came up with a better way: highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products. Plus, Barton created a hair test that is ideal for determining your heavy metal toxicity and mineral deficiencies. Tune in as we talk about the importance of testing, which minerals will be helpful with keto, and Barton speaks about his 11-day water fast.

[00:25] About Barton Scott

  • Faced with severe health issues, Barton realized that he needed to develop a solution that makes minerals absorb into the body.
  • Minerals and heavy metals are a critical thing to focus on to optimize health.
  • Every day, Barton would take 600 mg of magnesium every day – unfortunately, he just wasn’t absorbing the minerals.
  • Barton created a new category of supplementation called Nano Minerals to increase healthspan, focus, sleep quality and slow down accelerated aging.
  • His mission is to support you by creating, highly-effective dietary supplements that are absorbed better by the body than any other products.

[10:20] Getting All Of Our Minerals From Food

  • Unfortunately, our food isn’t enough to get all of our minerals.
  • We all have some level of gut disfunction. So, we shouldn’t be surprised that our guts are not efficient systems.
  • The environment is not perfect either in terms of efficiency.
  • As life goes on, we have less and less nutrition in our food. Topsoil is depleted; therefore, there are fewer nutrients in our foods.

[13:10] About Barton’s Hair Testing Kit

  • Say goodbye to blood draws and urine tests. You don’t need to go to the doctor anymore to take care of your body properly.
  • They test for key minerals, heavy metals, and understanding your metabolism.
  • The kit is super easy to use; you collect the hair sample, send it in, then you receive fast test results!

[20:30] Keto, Fasting, And Your Mineral Levels

  • When people are fasting poorly, their mineral levels are going to be low.
  • People are trying so hard to be healthy, but they just aren’t seeing results.
  • The perfect diet and fasting will not get you well; instead, it’s just part of the equation.
  • When you are eating a high-carb diet, you retain a lot of water weight. On keto, you will release a lot of excess water weight.
  • If you don’t have a plan in place, you might get brain fog, short-term memory loss, and other issues.

[23:30] Test, Don’t Guess   

  • When starting keto, Barton says you should test instead of guessing what you need to do.
  • People will take one test, then make some changes and not understand why it’s not working.
  • That’s why it’s essential to have a consultation with an expert.
  • Another mistake people make is not taking another test after making changes.
  • You have to know what’s happening in the body before you make effective changes.

[28:45] Upgraded Formulas That Will Help On Your Keto Journey

[36:15] About Barton’s 11-Day Water Fast  

  • Barton took his Upgraded Magnesium and Upgraded Potassium during the fast.
  • He felt amazing and got loads of work done during the fast.
  • If you do a 7-day fast once a year, it will cut your risk of cancer by ninety-five percent.
  • During the fast, Barton would sip black coffee as needed but tried not to drink too much.
  • Anytime we are stressed, we burn through minerals faster; so too much coffee may do harm.
  • Barton salts water daily for his fast too.

Ep. 61- Surprise fasting perks and modern-day survival | Regaining control during the chaos | Uncommon benefits of fasting | Free One Meal a Day (OMAD) Intermittent Fasting Plan
In this episode, Dr. Scott and Tommy discuss some of the uncommonly recognized benefits of adopting a fasting lifestyle. Modern living provides many benefits and luxuries in many parts of the world, but outside factors can sometimes turn our day-to-day life upside down. Even short-term changes can leave us feeling out of control, but we find that fasting teaches us ways to roll with these punches and keep a level head that can be very valuable during unpredictable times. Recent research also points to many other benefits of intermittent fasting that are discussed. Welton S, Minty R, O'Driscoll T, et al. Intermittent fasting and weight loss: Systematic review.
