Studies have examined the relationship of vitamin D and mood. Vitamin D deficiency was associated with the presence of an active mood disorder as assessed by the depressive symptoms.
Vitamin D supplementation may decrease bone turnover and increase bone mineral density. According to several randomized placebo-controlled trials, vitamin D and calcium revealed a significant decrease in fractures.
Several studies found an inverse relationship between vitamin D and markers of inflammation. Vitamin D3 supplementation in 6 out of 7 randomized control trials with patients who had highly inflammatory conditions including congestive heart failure, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, and heart attack was associated with significant reductions of inflammatory markers.
Vitamin D, sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be produced when the skin is exposed to the sun''s ultraviolet rays. Geographical location, use of sunscreen, and lack of outdoor activities impact vitamin D status in the body and may lead to a deficiency. Research shows it helps the body maintain a healthy inflammatory response and improve overall mood and bone health.
