VITAMIN D MAY REDUCE DEPRESSION FOR WOMEN

Increased intakes of vitamin D from foods but not supplements are associated with reduced prevalence of depression for postmenopausal women, says a new study.

The prevalence of depressive symptoms was 21% lower for women with daily vitamin D intakes exceeding 800 International Units (IU) per day, compared with intakes of less than 100 IU per day, according to findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The researchers add that the apparent benefits of vitamin D were primarily associated with dietary intakes of the sunshine vitamin, with supplemental vitamin D intakes producing “less consistent” results.

The researchers called for future studies to establish if boosting vitamin levels could prevent or treat depression, or both.
