Vitamin D and Depression


"A meta-analysis of all studies without flaws demonstrated a statistically significant improvement in depression with Vitamin D supplements."

"Vitamin D supplementation (>800 I.U. daily) was favorable in the management of depression in studies that demonstrate a change in vitamin levels, and the effect size was comparable to that of anti-depressant medication."

What You Need to Know:

"Depression affects 350 million people worldwide, is the leading cause of disability and the fourth-leading cause of the global disease burden [this has WORSENED with pandemic]."

"However, the effectiveness of conventional treatments for depression is questioned: meta-analyses of drug treatments demonstrate minimal difference from placebo [and serious side-effects], comparisons of real and sham electroconvulsive therapy show little difference after a month, and the evidence for the use of specific cognitive interventions is weak."

"Vitamin D modulates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, regulating adrenalin, noradrenaline and dopamine production through VDRs in the adrenal cortex; and protects against the depletion of dopamine and serotonin centrally. Therefore, biological plausibility for the action of Vitamin D in depression has been established."

"Epidemiological evidence shows that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with an 8%-14% increase in depression and a 50% increase in suicide."
