Vitamin D And SAD


Winter is here; and as the days get shorter, our bodies’ natural ability to produce vitamin D decreases. Winter is also the time when seasonal affective disorder (SAD) cases are the greatest.

There is a correlation.

Originally thought to play a role only in the mineralization of bones and teeth, low vitamin D levels cause a host of health problems — from obesity to diabetes to cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, osteoporosis and cancer. But low levels of vitamin D also cause depression, hence the link to SAD.

SAD is a type of depression that occurs at the same time each year. A person experiencing SAD has low energy and is often moody.

There is more than enough evidence to support the need for daily Vitamin D3. Check your levels if you want to, but the bet is that you are low, very low if you haven’t been on daily vitamin D3.

As an added bonus, vitamin D is a better flu fighter than the spurious flu vaccines being hawked by the medical industrial complex.
