Micronutrient formulation greatly improves mood, behavior, and anxiety disorders in 9 children.

Researchers treated nine unselected children with mood and behavioral problems with a micronutrient formulation co-developed by Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy. The children’s psychiatric diagnoses included attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, oppositional defiant disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, Asperger syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome. After a minimum of 8 weeks of micronutrient treatment, the children’s behavior improved significantly in the following areas: anxious and depressed mood, thought problems, interpersonal relationship problems, attention problems, social problems, withdrawn behavior, disruptive behavior, delinquent behavior, aggressive behavior, and self-harm behavior.

Improved mood and behavior during treatment with a mineral-vitamin supplement: an open-label case series of children.
