Getting an Upgrade with Barton Scott

If you're curious about supplements, this is the episode for you.  Barton Scott, a chemical engineer, is the founder of Upgraded Formulas. After watching loved ones suffer and die from illness, and struggling with his own health issues, he knew something had to be done.  Thus, Upgraded Formulas was born.  I love their products, and it was a pleasure to pick Barton's brain. I know you'll take something from this episode.
