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

With the world in a global pandemic, scientists are quickly trying to learn more about the spreading of viruses. We know this disease can spread easily from infected people when they cough, or sneeze. But we don’t have much data about who the virus affects, or why there is a difference in the severity of cases. Most importantly, researchers are still searching for a cure. As people flock to buy masks, gloves and other personal protective equipment, enlightened scientists have posed the question, what about vitamin D?

For some this can be a fleeting issue. Yet for others, insomnia interferes with daily life and can cause serious short and long term health problems and can severely impact quality of life.
Chronic insomnia can have an enormous impact mental and physical health, increasing the risk of chronic disease, mental health, heart disease, high blood pressure and worse, premature death

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:

World Mental Health Day 2020 comes at a time when our mental health has never been
under such threat. Suicides are up
(someone commits suicide approximately every 40 seconds) and anxiety,
isolation, panic attacks and depression are soaring. The CDC in America
reported more suicides than Covid deaths in July, with a particular cost in
high schools. The World Mental Health
Foundation are calling for a massive increase in investment in services.
We at Natural Mental Health add our voices to this call – but our emphasis is that such services should provide, as a first port of call, the micronutrients which our brains need to stay in balance. Our brains are the biggest consumers of vitamins in the body, and they need a wide range of trace minerals to keep functioning. Building a foundation of mental wellbeing and physical wellbeing can go hand in hand, and this solution is cheap and effective. SEE SPECIAL OFFER - NOW ON TILL END OF OCTOBER

We know from enquiries that there are people who would like to try the clinical strength Daily Essential Nutrients (DENs), our flagship micronutrient product for natural mental health, but find the price of the 360 capsule regular bottle a bit of a leap of faith. So we are therefore delighted to announce that we can now offer the capsules in a new, smaller, more affordable size. Daily Essential Nutrients, is now available in a bottle containing 120 capsules, This is sufficient for a 10-14 day supply depending on whether you start at the therapeutic recommended dosage of 12 capsules per day or build up more slowly. With a price tag of only £43.00 this represents great value.
The 360 capsule size bottle of Daily Essential Nutrients contains a month’s supply at the full clinical dose. For those who want to do a short trial of clinical strength micronutrients, the 120 count DEN may be a good option to start with.
“I use Daily Essential Nutrients because I know that they’re very high grade. And I only can say that because I noticed on day three when I started taking them a year and a half ago, my depression started to just dwindle away. My manic episodes just started to dissipate- literally.”
How could micronutrients help you?
Take it from Orthomolecular Specialist Mel Litman, M.D.,who offers Hardy’s Daily Essential Nutrients to patients of all backgrounds.
“Daily Essential Nutrients were developed for psychiatry, for brain issues. But I used them much broader than that. Because the nutrients are so good for all the tissues in the body, I regularly use them for my cancer patients, for my patients with autoimmune diseases. I found it very useful for women with osteoporosis because it has such good levels of the minerals in there. So I’ve been using it for a wide range of physical issues, aside from the psychiatric ones,” Dr. Litman shares.
Erica, a PTSD survivor who has trouble sleeping, discovered these essential micronutrients did more for her at night than standard medications, without the side-effects.
“What I found taking Daily Essential Nutrients is that my
sleep has improved so much so that my other symptoms are alleviated throughout
the day. In fact, I’ve tried lots of other options, in terms of assisting with
sleep, including pharmaceutical interventions or alternative interventions, and
Daily Essential Nutrients has been the most profound effect that I’ve seen on
my sleep. For me, that’s the reason why I go to it every single day.”

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
