The Impact of Micronutrients on Mental Health & Chronic Inflammation

We extend our sincere gratitude to Joel at Taproot Therapy Collective for the opportunity to discuss the transformative impact of micronutrients on mental health and chronic inflammation. We are especially thankful for the insightful conversation that allowed us to delve deep into this vital aspect of holistic health.

At Hardy Nutritionals®, founded by David L. Hardy, we are passionate about pioneering advancements in nutritional psychiatry. Our innovative approach has opened new avenues for treating mood, stress, and anxiety-related disorders. Whether you are a healthcare professional, someone grappling with mental health challenges, or simply intrigued by the power of nutrition, this episode promises to illuminate how micronutrients can be a catalyst for positive transformation.

Now, let's explore some noteworthy third-party research studies conducted on Hardy Nutritionals flagship micronutrient formula, Daily Essential Nutrients:

Efficacy and Safety of a Vitamin-Mineral Intervention for Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression in Adults: A Randomised Placebo-Controlled Trial "NoMAD": This study delved into the effects of micronutrients on anxiety and depression symptoms in adults. Significant improvements were observed in the micronutrient group, particularly in younger participants, those from lower socioeconomic groups, and individuals who had previously tried psychiatric medication.

Non-Pharmacological Interventions for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adolescents: This research evaluated the efficacy and safety of non-pharmacological treatments for pediatric ADHD. The conclusion highlighted that multinutrients, mindfulness, and polyunsaturated fatty acids can serve as effective secondary treatments in conjunction with primary treatments or when primary treatments are not suitable.

Micronutrients for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Youth: A Placebo-Controlled Randomized Clinical Trial: Focused on the benefits of micronutrients for ADHD and irritability in children, this trial found that micronutrients were more beneficial than placebo according to clinician ratings. The study underscored the safety and efficacy of micronutrients in treating ADHD in youth.

Do Changes in Blood Nutrient Levels Mediate Treatment Response in Children and Adults With ADHD Consuming a Vitamin-Mineral Supplement? This study aimed to determine whether changes in serum nutrient levels could mediate the clinical response to a micronutrient intervention for ADHD. It identified a weak association between a decrease in ferritin and an increase in copper with a greater likelihood of being identified as an ADHD responder.

Multinutrients for the Treatment of Psychiatric Symptoms in Clinical Samples: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials: Conducting a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of multinutrients for various psychiatric symptoms, this study revealed significant clinical benefits, particularly in ADHD populations. The findings indicated improvements in global functioning and symptom reduction.

We appreciate the opportunity to share these insights, research, and holistic health strategies with the audience. Watch the full version at for an enlightening journey into the world of micronutrients and their profound impact on well-being.
