University of Calgary’s Dr. Bonnie Kaplan examines 2600 years of folklore and modern science (from population health to supplementation) and develops a sound academic case for the use of micronutrients in treating mental health-related symptoms.
Dr. Kaplan first examines what humanity knew about nutrition from 2600 years ago to about 1950. Next, she discusses the relevant developments in neuroscience after 1950 and explains why there is an increasing interest in nutrition now.
Dr. Kaplan has extensively studied micronutrient formulations developed or co-developed by Hardy Nutritionals® founder, David Hardy. For summaries of the research backing Hardy Nutritionals® clinical-strength formulation Daily Essential Nutrients visit our research page.
