The above video gives some testimonials from people who have been using the broad spectrum vitamin-mineral formulation supplement Daily Essential Nutrients, or Optimal Balance, to maintain their health.
There is a great deal of emphasis in the current crisis on Vitamin C supplementation, and there are plenty of recommendations for high doses to combat ‘The Virus’.
So lets look at the reasons. According to a recent note sent out by the John Hopkins University, the Coronavirus has no live components, being a protein molecule (RNA) covered by a protective layer of fat, which when absorbed by mucosa cells mutates them into aggressor cells. Therefore it is the strength of the immunity of cells which might come under attack which prevents the disease taking hold ie our immune system.
The approach taken for doing this by Hardy Nutritionals, is broad spectrum supplementation ie taking a balanced combination of all the essential vitamins and nutrients together, along with support for the gut with good probiotics

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) is a chronic neuro-developmental disorder affecting millions of adults and children worldwide. The American Psychiatric Association estimated that this condition affects 5% of all children (2013). ADHD impacts mood, behaviour and social skills.*
Pharmaceutical treatments are typically stimulant or amphetamine-based medications, which can be effective in reducing symptoms for many children with ADHD in the short term. However, long-term studies of ADHD medications have shown to be unsatisfactory due to side effects, failure to prevent or alter long-term prognosis and discontinuance due to patient and family preferences**
The new study follows up an earlier Randomised Control double-blind study of children with ADHD who were taking Hardy Nutritionals Daily Essential Nutrients. Here is one family who took part:

Last weekend, we launched our new NaturalMentalHealth.co.uk website at the Get Well Health Expo at Olympia. We were delighted to receive scores of enquiries about our Hardy Nutritionals natural supplements for mental health.
Big thanks are owed to our practitioner customer Tamille Phillips who was kind enough to come and help on the stand (see previous blog). We have taken up her recommendation that we make a special offer that we believe will help parents with ADHD children so that they can help their own stress whilst ameliorating life for their child.
there is now a
special offer of 50% off any Optimal Balance bottle when buying a bottle of
Daily Essentials Nutrients! Just put a bottle of each in the shopping cart and the offer will be applied.
See more including a video on how a child development specialist has helped families including her own by using Daily Essential Nutrients.

There has been a lot of publicity about the link between the gut and the brain, and the importance to our health of the ‘microbiome’, sometimes called 'the second brain'. The microbiome equates to the population of bacteria which are responsible for many systems of the body. At its simplest, the ‘good bacteria’ need to be able to get on top of and outnumber the ‘bad bacteria’. As our world has grown ever more polluted and there is over-use of antibiotics, which kill all the bacteria indiscriminately, the amount of good bacteria available to our systems can get depleted. This leaves us vulnerable to the spread of bad bacteria as they enter our bodies in various ways, weakening our immune systems.
The good bacteria are also responsible for the enzymatic breakdown of all our food so that it is absorbable and useable by all the systems which depend on the right nutrients. In fact many vital compounds are actually created by the good bacteria in our gut. And there is evidence that some ‘bad bacteria’ and some antibiotics’ side effects can themselves create mental imbalance - from delusions to paranoia and insomnia (See the following article *for the research)
So the importance of our gut microflora cannot be underestimated! As a company committed to providing more nutrients to the brain in order for it to find balance and optimal operation, we are aware that it is vital to be able to absorb your food and any supplements needed. It is possible to identify imbalances in the gut by being aware of symptoms. You can use the Microflora Imbalance questionnaire ** created by Hardy Nutritionals for this. You can also email us for information about nutritional needs based on a symptoms’ analysis. Email firstname.lastname@example.org

‘You are what you eat. Where does that come from? Actually it’s a translation of the French phrase "Dis-moi ce que tu manges, je te dirai ce que tu es." [Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are], written by French doctor Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, in his book Physiologie du Gout, ou Meditations de Gastronomie Transcendante - 1826
