Exciting News on the Synergy of Omega-3 & Vitamin D
Omega-3s, specifically EPA and DHA, are becoming more and more recognizable as an essential preventative health factor.

Vitamin D is also sharing some of this newly realized importance. 

And, new studies are actually showing a very vital link between the two.

New research coming out of Children's Hospital Oakland has studied the synergy of Omega-3 and vitamin D on serotonin and its impact on autism, behavior issues, depression, schizophrenia and violence in our culture.

Jolie Root, Senior Nutritionist and Educator at Carlson Labs, joins host Lisa Davis to share more about this emerging research, as well as the specific amounts of DHA, EPA and vitamin D that both children and adults need on a daily basis.
