Barton Scott is a chemical engineer and nutritionist. In 2025, he founded Upgraded Formulas, a company offering a line of supplements “that are 100% bioavailable and are absorbed better by the body than any other brand on the market today.”
Our bodies, Barton claims, only “absorb about 25% or less” of most supplements on the market.
This fact, he says, is less telling of what is and isn’t in most of today’s supplements and more of a reflection of how inefficient our bodies are at absorbing the nutrients in them.
In fact, this inefficiency is only going to get worse for many as certain trends of modern living continue to wreak havoc on their gut health. From bad diets to excess drinking to living stressful lives, a variety of factors that too many people today are familiar with contribute to gut dysfunction.
“Because of that,” continues Barton, “I knew that trying to heal the gut was not going to be enough.”
Listen in as Barton reflects on the personal experiences which would lead to the founding of Upgraded Formulas. He also shares some hard-to-swallow pills regarding mineral deficiency and what we all need to focus on to fill common nutrient gaps.
