Not taking anything without the advice of your doctor is good. Just because something occurs naturally, doesn't mean it combines well in tablet form with other medication.

Many essential nutrients can fix a psychological problem that is in your head?

The key word here is, “essential,” it means something that is vital in order for you to function normally as a human being. For instance, without vitamins B1, B3 and C you will die because they are essential ingredient(s) in order for you to even live. Without B1 you will get the deadly disease Beriberi, without B3 Pellagra and without C of course Scurvy. And these three are doubly essential because your body cannot create them. And enough of each must be brought into your body in the food you eat to live normally and avoid numerous symptoms like Depression, Insomnia or Anxiety and physical problems like Heart Palpitations, Shooting/Burning Pains in the Feet, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis even dry skin and hair.

"Patients are rarely given vitamin supplements. Most physicians are simply unaware of the problem. Subclinical deficiencies of vitamin C and D have each been linked to psychological abnormalities, so we examined that aspect in our clinical trial," added Dr. Hoffer
