Mood disorders like depression effect every aspect of a person’s life.  The causes are complex and the options to address the issue can be overwhelming.

A new study looked at the relationship vitamin D may have to depression.  Nearly 2,000 people with depression and 500 controls were recruited and had their vitamin D levels measured.

They found that lower vitamin D levels were found in those who were depressed, especially those with the most severe symptoms.
