Proven to Improve Inattention, Impulsivity & Hyperactivity
Hardy Nutritionals® clinical strength micronutrient formulation, Daily Essential Nutrients, is the product of decades of independent university research on micronutrient therapy. Specifically formulated for adults and children, this powerful supplement contains every single vitamin and mineral scientists have found to be essential for human health in a highly bioavailable format.
Daily Essential Nutrients is backed by independent university research for focus, inattention, and hyperactivity. The studies also showed improvement in mood and overall functioning in those with ADHD.
This balanced blend of micro-ground absorbable vitamins, chelated minerals, potent antioxidants, and carefully chosen botanicals work together to deliver the key ingredients the body and brain need to function optimally. Daily Essential Nutrients targets the underlying causes of inattention, hyperactivity, and mood swings by crossing the blood-brain barrier to alleviate symptoms at the source.*
Those who have tried Daily Essential Nutrients often report significantly improved focus, attention, and calm energy when taken at a dose of 4 capsules three times per day. Taking a lower dose may result in less improvement.
Why take so much? The 30+ independent university studies found that in order to have a therapeutic effect, the micronutrients need to be administered at specific levels and ratios. All of the research conducted on Daily Essential Nutrients was third-party funded, carried out by independent researchers at universities, and peer-reviewed.

Why Daily Essential Nutrients?

Our Story
Hardy Nutritionals® founder David Hardy is the world’s recognized pioneer in micronutrient supplementation. His formulations have been the subject of multiple independent university studies including double-blind studies for a wide range of brain health issues including impulsivity, hyperactivity, focus, mood, and stress. Hardy Nutritionals® micronutrient formulations are 100% drug-free, and are powered by our proprietary NutraTek™ mineral delivery technology, which combines each mineral with specialized organic molecules to optimize absorption and distribution to body cells.*
Our Products
Hardy Nutritionals® provides two levels of micronutrient supplementation. Our general health formulation, Optimal Balance® provides powerful nutrition for healthy children and adults and those suffering from light to moderate stress or insomnia. Our clinical strength formulation, Daily Essential Nutrients is designed for children and adults with more severe symptoms who need a more concentrated formula. Hardy Nutritionals® products provide ongoing relief to many thousands of people each month, and works with hundreds of doctors worldwide.

Why it Works


The powerful balance of ingredients in Daily Essential Nutrients work together to address nutrient deficiencies which affect multiple pathways within the body that are associated with focus, mood and hyperactivity.*

Unlike average multivitamins, the nutrients in Daily Essential Nutrients have been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier so they can be put to use by the body’s cells, allowing the body to make and regulate its own cofactors such as melatonin & 5HTP rather than synthetically receiving them.

What are the most important things I need to know to have success with taking Daily Essential Nutrients?

Understanding these important factors will make all the difference in your success using Hardy micronutrients: The brain and body need optimal nutrition to function correctly. Consistent and regular intake of Daily Essential Nutrients ensures that your nutritional foundation is solid.   Gut health is critically important. Without adequate gut health, you won’t properly absorb the nutrients you need. Take our Gut Health quiz to learn more.

If you are currently taking psychiatric medication, it is important that you talk to your doctor before transitioning to micronutrients. You may be able to take micronutrients and medications together, depending on your situation. Be sure to watch this video before you get started.

You can also text or call our Product Specialists for help when starting micronutrients. We are standing by Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm MT, via phone or text at 855-955-1114.

How soon should I expect to see results?

Many individuals begin to report dramatic results within a few days; however, Daily Essential Nutrients typically produces results gradually over a period of several weeks or months (and sometimes longer for certain conditions). Medical journal publications have reported impressive results in people who took our products at recommended levels for at least 8 weeks. But it’s safe to say that no one will see the full benefits of Daily Essential Nutrients in just 8 weeks— many people continue to report subtle improvements for years after.

How much do I need to take?

For adults and children age 6 and over, the recommended dose of Daily Essential Nutrients—4 capsules, 3 times per day, with meals—is based on extensive clinical experience addressing various symptoms in thousands of people, including adults, adolescents, and children. Independent university research has shown that people respond best, particularly in the first few months, by consistently taking the recommended dose. If using our powder form, the therapeutic dosage is 3 scoops per day.

How much do children need to take?

In general, we recommend the following initial dosages of Daily Essential Nutrients for children diagnosed with psychiatric conditions, based on published research and clinical experience:

  • 2-3 years: Work up to 4 capsules/day (with food).
  • 4-5 years: Work up to 8 capsules/day (with food).
  • 6 years or older: Work up to 12 capsules/day (with food).

For those using the powder form, 1 scoop of powder is equivalent to 4 capsules.

Is this a vegan friendly product?

Yes. Daily Essential Nutrients is completely vegan and contains no animal by-products.

Is Daily Essential Nutrients top 8 allergen free?

Yes. Daily Essential Nutrients is wheat, peanut, egg, dairy, fish, nut, soy, and shellfish-free.

Is Daily Essential Nutrients non-GMO?

Yes. Daily Essential Nutrients is free from GMOs.

How do I get started?

The simplest way is to take one capsule 3 times per day the first day, two capsules 3 times per day the second day, three capsules 3 times per day the third day, and by the fourth day, you’ll be taking the full recommended dose of 4 capsules 3 times per day. Most people have no problem tolerating Daily Essential Nutrients when they gradually introduce it in this way. Those who may be sensitive can choose to increase the dose more gradually.

Can I stop taking Daily Essential Nutrients once I’ve seen a positive response?

Supplying your body with nutrients on a regular daily basis will ensure your body gets the critical and essential ingredients it needs for maximum wellness and optimal results. Consistently eating nutrient-rich food is also very important, but even if you’re carefully choosing your diet, it’s still very difficult to get all the nutrition you need from food alone. This is especially true for anyone with mood or mental health issues, because according to research, these people often have higher-than-average nutrient needs.

Over the years, researchers have documented many cases where people with mood, anxiety, or behavioral issues responded favorably to our nutrient therapies and then stopped taking it, thinking they didn’t need it anymore. The unfavorable symptoms returned. Restoring the nutrients improved their symptoms dramatically again. Most people who experience this contrast decide that it’s worth taking Daily Essential Nutrients regularly to enjoy the stability it provides.

Does Daily Essential Nutrients have any side effects at our recommended levels?

Occasionally, when people begin taking Daily Essential Nutrients, they may have looser stools than usual for a few days, but as the body adjusts to the additional nutrients, this typically normalizes, as it does when you introduce a new food to your diet. It is also normal for a person’s urine to be brighter yellow in color while they are taking micronutrients. This is a harmless side effect of taking vitamin B2 (also called riboflavin). It’s very rare for people to have any other side effects.

Do I need to add extra vitamins or minerals to Daily Essential Nutrients?

It’s rare that people need to take additional vitamins or minerals because Daily Essential Nutrients is designed to meet nearly everyone’s daily needs at the suggested serving. This all-in-one approach gives you clear advantages in terms of convenience and cost-savings.
