Here I give my thoughts on the Hardy multivitamin & mineral formula with a once-over from the Brain of Rachel.
First, let’s look at some key mood nutrients that are in the Hardy formula.
- lithium orotate in trace amount
- acetyl L-carnitine
I cannot address these in this post. Refer to my list of Mood Repair Books.
Main takeaway. Yes, you might need these key mood nutrients. But, you might also need different ones, or some other ones that are not included in the Hardy formula. Tailoring this to yourself would be important over the long run. One strategy would be to try one bottle of the Hardy formula and see if it makes any difference. If it does, and you want to improve or save money, read on… This post is about combining products.
My caveat: I haven’t done a price comparison yet. I suspect my plan shaves off some dollars. It’s not easier, but it’s likely cheaper. The Hardy formula could get super expensive for an adult. And, my point in this post is that the Hardy is not as complete. The money that I would “save” on my basic multivitamin (which is pretty much what the Hardy formula is), goes toward purchasing the additional bonus supplements that I take.
- calcium (or high quality dairy and spinach)
- copper – some mood disorders need more, some need less.
