Sunshine Can Help Depression! Understanding Vitamin D!

Sunshine vitamin

Vitamin D is sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight.

It’s a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D-1, D-2, and D-3. 

Your body produces vitamin D naturally when it’s directly exposed to sunlight. You can also get it through some foods and supplements to ensure adequate levels of the vitamin in your blood.

Vitamin D has offers important functions. The most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorus, and facilitating normal immune system function. 

Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.

 If your body doesn’t get enough vitamin D, you’re at risk of developing bone abnormalities such as soft bones (osteomalacia) or fragile bones (osteoporosis).

Vitamin D can help fight disease and  depression as well!

Research has demonstrated that vitamin D may play a significant role in regulating moods and warding off depression. In one study, scientists found that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed an improvement in their symptoms.

Get outside for your mental and physical health!
