At Hardy Nutritionals, we are deeply committed to improving mental health through nutritional science. Our Daily Essential Nutrients (DEN) formulation is a testament to this commitment, offering a scientifically-backed, holistic approach to managing conditions such as ADHD. 

DEN, our flagship supplement has been highlighted on several times and is currently highlighted in an article published in their digital magazine. The article delves into various natural remedies for ADHD, including nutrition, exercise, and supplements, emphasizing the crucial role of these interventions in supporting mental health alongside traditional medication treatments. It specifically discusses multiple holistic approaches to treating ADHD naturally, including supplementing with DEN.


Omega-3 fatty acids, zinc, vitamin D, iron, and magnesium are among the supplements discussed for their benefits in managing ADHD symptoms. However, it's Daily Essential Nutrients that stands out for its comprehensive approach. Developed by Hardy Nutritionals, DEN has been rigorously tested in three double-blind randomized placebo-controlled trials, showcasing its efficacy in reducing impairment and improving attention, emotional and mood regulation, aggression, and overall functioning in children with ADHD and emotional dysregulation.

What sets DEN apart is not just its effectiveness but the depth of research backing its formulation. Unlike single nutrient supplements, DEN provides a broad spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals in precise ratios designed to support optimal brain function. This approach is based on the understanding that mental health is influenced by a complex interplay of nutritional factors, and addressing these through a comprehensive supplement can lead to significant improvements.

While the research summarized in the ADDitude article points out that DEN did not show improvements in hyperactive/impulsive symptoms in one study, the benefits in other areas of ADHD and emotional dysregulation are profound. DEN improved the study participants' focus, attention, and overall global functioning. The challenge of ensuring adequate daily intake, given the recommendation of 12 pills a day, is met with the option of a flavored powder form, making it more accessible for children who have difficulty with pills.

At Hardy Nutritionals, we recognize the concerns parents have about starting their children on medication for ADHD. The potential side effects and the variability in medication effectiveness drive the search for natural remedies. Our dedication to research and development in nutritional psychiatry has led to the creation of Daily Essential Nutrients as a viable, research-backed option for those seeking alternative treatments.

DEN represents our commitment to providing safe, effective, and research-backed nutritional solutions for mental health challenges. By focusing on the foundational role of nutrition in brain health, Hardy Nutritionals aims to offer hope and practical support to individuals and families navigating the complexities of ADHD and other mental health conditions.
