According to a 2015 review published by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology, vitamin D, EPA, and DHA all help regulate the production, release, and function of serotonin. Social isolation affects the activation of our serotonergic pathways—but omega-3 fatty acids (specifically EPA and DHA) and vitamin D both have an important role in the actions of these pathways and are thus, critical nutrients for everyone but especially people who are dealing with loneliness. To ensure optimal production and use of serotonin, maintaining healthy levels of both vitamin D and marine omega-3s is vital.
