Are Low Vitamin D Levels and Depression Related?

January 28, 2015

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.”
