How To Successfully Transition To Daily Essential Nutrients


If you are planning to transition to Daily Essential Nutrients (with or without medications) this short video can help you get started:

"Individuals typically see life-changing results within three to six months, and thousands of people have successfully replaced their psychiatric medications with micronutrients within this time.

 However, noticeable improvement in attention, mood, anxiety, and other neurological symptoms often begins in as few as three to six weeks. Success with Hardy Nutritionals® products is achieved by taking our micronutrients consistently and as recommended. 

We have helped tens of thousands of people achieve a level of mental and physical well-being that they didn't think was possible. Following our guidelines is especially important for individuals taking prescription medications and those with digestive health issues. 

The following recommendations are based on both published research and extensive clinical experience.

We recommend taking Daily Essential Nutrients three times per day with food. Individuals six or older should work up to a total dose of 12 capsules per day, beginning with one capsule per dose, then increasing to two capsules, then three capsules, and finally four capsules, three times per day. The vast majority have no problems starting this way.

Children younger than 6 years of age and sensitive individuals may want to start with just one capsule per day and increase the dosage by one capsule each day up to the recommended dose.

The micronutrient levels found in 12 capsules of Daily Essential Nutrients is the dose that has been shown to produce the most benefit in research studies. While 12 may seem like a lot of pills to take, but those who experienced illness symptoms seem to have very high nutrient needs and they respond best to our recommended doses.

Individuals experiencing severe psychiatric symptoms, extreme stress, physical illness, injury, puberty, or who are pregnant or lactating may benefit from even more than 12 capsules per day.

Remember, 12 capsules are far from a megadose. The primary reason Daily Essential Nutrients is bulkier than other supplements is because it supplies much more nutrition. As a result, it produces outcomes that other supplements simply can't deliver.

Daily Essential Nutrients contains all the essential vitamins and minerals at therapeutic levels.

This approach may be bulky, but it is effective.  Our proprietary NutraTek™ chelation complex adds volume, but by increasing bioavailability, it significantly enhances the effectiveness of the formulation.

Just three chelated macro minerals: calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium comprise the equivalent of 8 out of every 12 capsules and this delivers only slightly more than the minimum needs of an adult for one day.

The volume of the remaining four capsules consists of trace minerals, vitamins, and the proprietary ingredients.

Daily Essential Nutrients is incredibly safe. Toxicity from excess nutrient intake is rare and almost always results from taking poorly formulated supplements or from very high levels of only one or several isolated nutrients. This is why Daily Essential Nutrients delivers all the essential vitamins and minerals in a carefully balanced combination. When it comes to nutrition the discussion of safety must include, not only what intake levels are too high, but also what intake levels are too low because the health problems caused by inadequate nutrient intake are much more common and can be extremely serious.

Most people with illness symptoms and even many apparently healthy people are not getting enough vitamins and minerals and the recommended dose of Daily Essential Nutrients brings them well into the safe intake range.

In actual clinical use, blood tests of hundreds of study participants who used our micronutrients at recommended levels have all been shown to be within normal ranges. Daily Essential Nutrients rarely produces any adverse effects whatsoever. In stark contrast, medications can cause severe adverse side effects at almost any dose.

Daily Essential Nutrients is like food for a starving brain. If you stop feeding it, the brain will begin to show signs of hunger and symptoms will return. In working with thousands of people we've seen that each individual has their own threshold of nutrient needs.

Some people may need slightly more or slightly less than 12 capsules to effectively manage their symptoms, but the majority of people see an optimal response when taking 12 capsules per day. As a general rule, partial doses deliver only partial benefits.

Don't cheat yourself out of an optimal response."
