In 2015, Barton found IF in his quest for mental clarity. After being tested for nutrient deficiencies, he could not find supplements on the market that he liked. This led Barton to create his own line of supplements, Upgraded Formulas, in 2016.

Barton feels more grounded, peaceful and aligned living the IF lifestyle.

Barton’s advice: “With IF, your minerals are even more important. They are the building blocks to your hormones. Minerals aid in sustained energy, and help you sleep better. Get some testing done to feel your best.”
