Could Micronutrients Help Veterans? -

Recent study indicates micronutrients may help reduce intrusive thoughts after trauma

There has been an increasing amount of attention being paid to the role micronutrients play in mental health, and recent research suggests this may extend to those suffering  following traumatic incidents.

A recent study** conducted in New Zealand after the 6.3 earthquake in 2011 suggests that micronutrients could hold a key to reducing the intensity of emotions and stress reactions after experiencing trauma. Individuals given a micronutrient protocol after the devastating earthquake reported reduced intrusive thoughts and stress, with improved mood and energy.

The research suggests that a micronutrient protocol may complement therapeutic approaches, such as yoga and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), to support peace of mind for our veterans.

  • Micronutrients support the bodies’ essential functions that tend to become sluggish during times of suffering*

  • Micronutrients act as the ‘spark plugs’ for important chemical reactions in the body that support balanced moods, mental clarity and overall calm*

  • Micronutrients help support gut balance, which is often compromised during stress due to diminished good bacteria among other things*

The MicroNourish Core micronutrient formula was designed with mental health and gut absorption in mind*. With trace minerals, vitamins, amino acids and plant nutrients, the powerhouse formula is a great place to start rebuilding a lost nutritional foundation. The digestive supplements, Superfood Prebiotics & Probiotics and Digestive Plant Enzymes further support balance, by helping support the gut and maximize nutrient absorption.*
