Vitamin D and Omega-3 fatty acids
Dr. Wm. Polsky recently received an email from a Nordic Naturals, Inc representative, which said the following:
1. Serotonin plays a major role in behavior (mood disorders) and brain function2. DHA supports cell “fluidity” which improves serotonin receptor function in the cell membrane3. EPA supports the regulation of serotonin release – by inhibiting the inhibitor of serotonin (PGE2 an Omega-6 derivative)4. Vitamin “D” supports and helps regulates serotonin synthesis by converting tryptophan to TPH2 (inadequate D=inadequate serotonin synthesis= increased risk for mood disorders)
These are some encouraging findings. Information is being accumulated these days that is impossible to ignore; evidence that good nutrition, proper rest and exercise can bring about wonderful results.
Also, fish oils and vitamin D together may help restore proper heart function and improve diabetes.
For instance, shown in another article below research into the “brain fog” of chronic fatigue victims and M.S. show that in the spinal fluid of both types of victims faulty cytokines bathe the spinal cord and brain with gunk that should just not be there. Cytokines*.
Brain Fog is Not Just in your Head
Study reveals evidence that it’s ‘not made up,’ researcher says
*Cytokines are evidence of inflammation, whether it’s in spinal fluid, heart problems, or diabetes. People suffering from all of these conditions have been tested and found to overwhelmingly be difficient in vitamin D. Inflammatory conditions may be able to be reduced by proper intake of Vitamin D and Omega 3.
