The surprisingly dramatic role of nutrition in mental health

Here’s a remarkable TEDx talk that’s well worth sharing!
Nutrition researcher Dr. Julia Rucklidge, a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Canterbury, NZ gives compelling evidence for the critical role of nutrition in mental health and explains why this knowledge will revolutionize the way our society treats ‘mental illness’!

For more than a decade, Dr. Rucklidge has played a key role in forefront nutrition-mental health research, including extensive research using products formulated by Hardy Nutritionals® Founder David Hardy. A recent scientific article in BMC Psychiatry noted that there is “more published and ongoing research on [Hardy’s] formula for mental health than on any other complex formula anywhere in the world.”

Dr. Rucklidge recently published a double blind study in the British Journal of Psychiatry which showed that those taking Hardy’s nutrient formula experienced “statistically robust improvements” over those taking placebo. For example, the adult participants taking the nutrients reported more than double the improvement in ADHD symptoms (including attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity), compared with participants taking placebo. Dr. Rucklidge is currently conducting a double-blind study using Hardy’s newest formulation, Daily Essential Nutrients, in children diagnosed with ADHD.
