Sunlight and fish oil help cure psychiatric disorders, study suggests

The neurotransmitter serotonin may be one of the main mechanisms by which vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids help improve mental health, according to a paper authored by researchers from Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute and published in FASEB Journal.

"In this paper we explain how serotonin is a critical modulator of executive function, impulse control, sensory gating, and pro-social behavior," researcher Rhonda Patrick said. "We link serotonin production and function to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting one way these important micronutrients help the brain function and affect the way we behave."

From depression to schizophrenia

Researchers continue to uncover the myriad ways that vitamin D and omega-3s benefit cognitive and emotional health. Both of these essential nutrients have been linked not only to preventing psychiatric disorders, but also to improving psychiatric symptoms, as well as behavior and cognitive function in patients with certain brain disorders.

For example, a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in September 2014 found that vitamin D may help with the recycling of neurotransmitters a brain region responsible for memory and learning, thus helping stave off cognitive decline. Another 2014 study, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, found that vitamin D deficiency could double the risk of schizophrenia.

Various studies have also linked higher omega-3 http://www.dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=34507 levels with improved mood and lower rates of psychological disorders. A comprehensive research review published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry in 2010 found that omega-3 supplements significantly improved depression symptoms in patients who also suffered from anxiety and had not responded to antidepressants.

The body naturally produces vitamin D upon exposure to sunlight, whereas omega-3s are found in a variety of foods, most notably fish oil.

The serotonin connection

Although evidence of the brain benefits of vitamin D and omega-3s continues to mount, the mechanism for these benefits have remained elusive. In a prior study, the Oakland researchers discovered that vitamin D helps regulate the synthesis of serotonin from the amino acid tryptophan. In another paper, they noted that this may suggest a connection between poor vitamin D status in children and the development of autism.

In the most recent paper, the authors discuss how serotonin has been shown to play a key role in a wide variety of cognitive processes including decision making, social behavior, impulses and mood. Low serotonin may play a role in brain-related conditions as diverse as mood disorders http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=33297 (depression and bipolar disorder), schizophrenia, autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

The authors note that the omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) has been shown to reduce the activity in the brain of inflammatory signaling molecules known as E2 series prostaglandins, which inhibit serotonin release. Therefore, EPA both reduces brain inflammation (linked to various brain diseases) and increases serotonin levels. Another omega-3, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), has been shown to increase the fluidity of cell membranes near the synapses of neurons, thereby increasing their efficiency at using serotonin.

Vitamin D http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=33865, in addition to its role in serotonin production, also helps regulate the expression of approximately 1,000 separate genes in the body.

The findings suggest that increasing levels of vitamin D (such as through increased sunlight exposure http://dreddyclinic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=34805) and omega-3s could have a major role in reducing the prevalence and severity of various brain-related disorders.

"Vitamin D, which is converted to a steroid hormone that controls about 1,000 genes, many in the brain, is a major deficiency in the US and omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies are very common," researcher Bruce Ames said.

A major benefit of this approach, the researchers note, is that these nutrients are largely free of side effects.
