I really don't know how better to explain it. In terms of the gut - 80% of the entire body's serotonin is in the gut... naturally as the way we are made. As a neurotrans it aids and is greatly responsible for alot of body processes and functions not just for mood.
In terms of bone stuff, serotonin, or rather the messing w/ the concentration of serotonin at the synaptic level, has become a big bad scary thing BUT I'm of the opinion we don't have enough solid info to come to any conclusions on that. I feel it needs more research and it might be currently overplayed. Anyway, bottom line is we can't function w/out it. It's pretty essential.
