Micronutrient formulation greatly improves bipolar symptoms in 23 adults, adolescents, and children.

After observing a 10-year-old boy's dramatic response to a micronutrient formulation co-developed by Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy, Dr. Charles Popper, a psychiatrist and psycho-pharmacologist at Harvard Medical School, treated 22 additional bipolar disorder-diagnosed patients in his private practice (10 adults, 9 adolescents, and 3 preadolescents) with the micronutrients. Nineteen of the 22 patients (86%) showed a positive response to micronutrient treatment. Of the 15 patients being treated with medications when they began the nutritional supplement, 11 patients remained stable during a follow-up period of 6 to 9 months without psychiatric medications.

Do vitamins or minerals (apart from lithium) have mood-stabilizing effects?
