In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with a returning guest, Barton Scott, owner of Upgraded Formulas. We dive deep into the idea that mineral deficiencies are at the root of many chronic health conditions. Our fascinating discussion centers around iron metabolism, a topic that has always intrigued me. Join our discussion to find out how minerals impact hormones, energy levels, and sleep quality, while also learning how a hair analysis can reveal your mineral levels.

Key Notes From This Episode:

  • Iron can be stored up to ten times higher in tissues than in blood, often leading to misdiagnoses of iron anemia.
  • The body recycles 96% of the iron we take in.
  • Iron excess in tissues forces the body to use more magnesium to maintain ideal blood pH.
  • High iron levels can cause premature graying as iron plus oxygen equals oxidation (rusting).
  • Hair mineral testing provides a better picture of mineral status than blood tests.
  • There’s a fascinating connection between nutrition and personality traits, which can affect relationships.
  • Magnesium and copper deficiencies are almost always present in cases of chronic fatigue.
  • Success in health comes down to “bio harmony” – matching supplements to how food is naturally broken down in the body.
  • And so much more!
