Life Elevated Through Daily Essential Nutrients


         David Hardy's micronutrient formulation Daily Essential Nutrients are safe and effective as natural alternatives to psychiatric medications, especially when taken at the full recommended therapeutic dose. 


Scientists from New York University and the University of Calgary analyzed data from 358 adults who took formulations co-developed+ by Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy for 6 months or more and who regularly reported their symptoms.

Overall, 82% of adults experienced a measureable improvement in symptoms! Researchers reported that the individuals whose mental health improved the most in the study sample:

  • Took the full recommended dose of the micronutrients.

  • And gradually eliminated their psychiatric medications.

Feasibility of a nutritional supplement as treatment for pediatric bipolar spectrum disorders.

Researchers investigated the therapeutic effects of a micronutrient formulation co-developed† by Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy in 7 children with bipolar disorder.
The children’s additional psychiatric diagnoses included attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, conduct disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. The children experienced a 37% decrease in depression scores and a 45% decrease in mania scores over 8 weeks. Side effects were minor and transient—mostly temporary gastric discomfort.


Database analysis: Micronutrient formulation greatly improves bipolar symptoms in 358 adults.

Scientists analyzed data from 358 adults with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder who took a micronutrient formulation co-developed† by Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy for 6 months or more.

The adults’ overall symptom severity was 41% lower than baseline after 3 months, and 45% lower after 6 months. In addition, at 6 months, 53% of adults experienced greater than 50% improvement in symptoms, with 32% of adults experiencing greater than 75% improvement in symptoms.

Symptom improvements at 6 months suggested that benefits of micronutrient treatment were not attributable to placebo or expectancy effects. Of those taking psychiatric medications, nearly half were able to discontinue them over a 6-month period. The remainder reduced their medication usage by 54% during the same time period.


Adults who gradually eliminated their medications and took full recommended levels of the vitamin-mineral formulation experienced the greatest improvements in symptoms.
