The Centers for Disease Control recently published this study in October 2014 of 615 young adults between 17 to 25 years of age. The vitamin D levels were measured and questionnaires were completed.  Low serum Vitamin D levels correlated with increased symptoms of depression.  The investigators concluded, “Although our findings suggest that vitamin D is a predictor of depression symptomatology, even when controlling for time spent outdoors, a randomized controlled trial in this young adult target group is needed to confirm the association.”
