Happiness starts by getting some sun. Vitamin D is produced in the skin from sunlight, and available as a supplement. Upwards of 5,000 IU of vitamin D3 vlog daily is optimal for bone and muscle strength, cancer prevention, cardiovascular function, autoimmune disease prevention, and infection resistance. It also enhances a sense of well-being, improves sleep, reduces inflammation, and relieves depression, which contribute to happiness.
Equally important for happiness are omega-3 fatty acids, which support heart, brain, mood, joint, skin, immune, allergic, digestive, metabolic and vision health. Our eyes and brains contain high levels of DHA – the mature form of omega-3 – which improves nerve-cell growth and communication. Omega-3s reduce inflammation, a process that fuels depression, anxiety, cognitive dysfunction, heart disease and cancer.
Fish oil makes for happy mothers and babies. Omega-3 deficiency is a risk factor in major psychiatric and personality disorders, despair, homicide and suicide. Arthritis relief is also worth a few smiles.
Animal sources include fatty fish, grass-fed meat an dairy, and fish and krill oil supplements. Vegetarian sources include algae, flaxmeal, walnuts, hemp and chia seeds. Other healthy fats found in olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, and leafy green vegetables also decrease depression risk.
Many fats are prone to oxidative damage (rancidity), which contributes to aging and chronic diseases. Omega-3s are protected by several antioxidants, including carotenoids, vitamin E, curcumin, CoQ10, olive oil and extracts, fruits, vegetables and green tea. Yellow carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin) protect omega-3s in the brain and eye to prevent dementia and blindness, which can lead to dependency, depression and unhappiness. Neural tissue is difficult to regenerate, and needs antioxidant protection.
Adults with higher antioxidant levels are more optimistic. Carotenoids from fruits, vegetables, or supplements are especially effective. High carotenoid intake is linked to numerous health benefits and longevity.

Raising serotonin improves mood. Serotonin is made from tryptophan. 5HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) has been shown to raise serotonin levels. Vitamins B6 and B12 help maintain serotonin levels, and help reduce irritability, weakness, insomnia and calm nerves. Vitamin B6 increases omega-3s in cell membranes. SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine) also promotes mood-elevating neurotransmitters.
