Recently, our scientists conducted a careful audit of Daily Essential Nutrients with the goal of reducing the number of capsules you need to take while keeping all essential nutrient guarantees the same.
They found a way to reduce our daily recommended dose by 3 capsules without compromising its effectiveness—simply by using more concentrated ingredients.
- Higher nutrient levels – You’ll get 25% more of each essential nutrient in every capsule.
- The recommended serving size is 4 capsules instead of 5 (3 times a day).
- The bottle is smaller and contains 360 capsules instead of 450.
What’s the same?
- Same essential nutrient content in 4 capsules as previously in 5.
- Same essential nutrient guarantees in each bottle.
- Same capsule size.
- Same price per bottle.
Here’s a quick comparison of the essential nutrient label guarantees (per-serving) on the ‘Supplement Facts’ of the old 450 capsule bottle compared with the new 360 capsule bottle:
Additional natural form of vitamin B12
As we’ve shown you, the essential nutrient guarantees are identical. To further optimize our formula, our scientists have added a new form of vitamin B12—adenosylcobalamin—to act in concert with the methylcobalamin that is already in the formulation. Both of these vitamin B12 forms are naturally occurring in food and are the essential ‘active’ forms used in the body.
We do not use the much cheaper, non-natural form of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) that is used in most supplements because it’s poorly retained in the body and must be converted to these two ‘active’ forms to be useful.
What about the ‘Proprietary Blend’ levels?
You’ll notice that the ‘Proprietary Blend’ amount on the new label is now lower—596 mg instead of 791 mg.
So what’s changed?
Very little! In fact, in our new Daily Essential Nutrients, you’ll be getting the same levels of every active ingredient listed in the ‘Proprietary Blend’ of our old bottle, with one small exception.
You may notice that germanium sesquioxide doesn’t appear on the new label. In our scientists’ analysis of the formulation, they opted to remove germanium as a single trace ingredient because it is actually already contained in “mineral wax”. Mineral wax is a rich, natural complex of 85+ minerals—including organic germanium and numerous other trace minerals.
More concentrated form of choline:
The form of choline bitartrate that we used in the ‘Proprietary Blend’ of our old 450 capsule bottle was nearly 200 mg bulkier (per serving) than our new form, but the active ingredient level is identical! In other words, with our new, concentrated product, you’ll still get exactly the same benefit from choline bitartrate, it’s just delivered in a form that doesn’t take up nearly as much space in each capsule!
In summary, all active ingredients that were in the ‘Proprietary Blend’ of the 450 capsule product are included in our new, concentrated 360 capsule product.
How did we do it?
We recently moved our production of Daily Essential Nutrients to a new contract manufacturing facility. We have been very impressed by their state-of-the-art equipment and production capacity—it is unmatched in the industry.
David Hardy, our Founder, recently stated, “Our new contract manufacturer is a specialist in the area of mineral chelation. Their facilities are advanced and they have a significant capacity to grow with us.”
He adds, “To accompany the impressive facilities, we’ve been blessed to work with very talented people with the technical know-how to help us pass on to our customers some exciting innovations. We couldn’t be more pleased that we have been able to effectively reduce the bulk of the formula without reducing the nutrient guarantees.”
Some background on past product innovations
Our newest Hardy Nutritionals® Daily Essential Nutrients formulation is the culmination of nearly 20 years of research and product development. Since the inception of David Hardy’s idea to use a specialized complex of essential vitamins and minerals to treat serious mood disorders, many formulation changes have been made based on valuable feedback from health professionals and customers.
As scientific research using Hardy’s formulas† has been published, we’ve incorporated this new knowledge into making a more effective product. This research has resulted in over 20 publications in medical journals†. A recent article in BMC Psychiatry noted that there is “more published and ongoing research on this formula† for mental health than on any other complex formula anywhere in the world.”
We’ve come a long way over the years…
- The first all-in-one product† that David Hardy formulated many years ago was taken at 32 capsules per day!
- A few years later, with technological advances and capsule space efficiency improvements, the daily dose was reduced to 18 capsules per day†.
- After this, our scientists were able to deliver an even more effective product, with a daily dose of 15 capsules per day†.
- When Daily Essential Nutrients was formulated in 2012 with boosted levels of vitamins and other key ingredients, we were able to fit all the enhancements into 15 capsules.
- Now, with a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and a team of scientists that is more focused on product development than ever before, we’ve been able to fit all the ingredients that were previously in 15 capsules into 12.
David Hardy summarizes, “We’re very pleased with the results we’ve seen over the years that have greatly improved the effectiveness and tolerability of our formulation; however, as new research comes out, we will continue to focus on improving our formulation in any way that we can. Our scientists are excited to keep Hardy Nutritionals® at the forefront of nutritional health research and product development.”
