I don’t like endorsing products and this is not an endorsement, but it is the story of a woman whose experience I believe. And it is in fact a “bipolar” recovery story. A case of someone lacking necessary nutrients.
Products like EmpowerPlus are what I call “shot-gun” approaches. They may work very well for some and indeed this woman is not the first I’ve heard do very well on EmpowerPlus. The thing is not all so-called “bipolar” disorder can simply be fixed by one very specific concoction of vitaimins and minerals.
There are often profound psycho/spiritual issues that must be addressed as well. Trauma in childhood is rampant in people diagnosed with mental distress of any kind. In my opinion, most often several fronts of healing need to be explored, including nutrition, but equally important the psycho/spiritual and sometimes other physical problems that are simply not addressed with this supplement. Things like food allergies for example, though it could be many other things as well.
Also I’ve looked closely at the ingredients and it’s pretty easy to create a better individual formula that can also be quite a bit cheaper if you’re going to respond to this particular protocol.
I personally would not take this particular concoction because it has L-Phenylalanine in it, which I know makes me agitated. It can be very helpful for some people’s depression though.
In any case, it’s strong evidence that nutrition and diet can be and often is a major part of what needs to be addressed in all sorts of mental distress.
It will be interesting to see the results of the clinical trials at University of Calvary.
