Vitamin D and Mood Health
Researchers from the University of Massachusetts analyzed 3 years of health and diet data from more than 81,000 women, aged 50 to 79. They found that those with a daily vitamin D intake of 800 IU or greater had a 21% lower risk of being depressed than women with a daily intake of less than 100 IU. (Sunshine triggers the body’s production of vitamin D, perhaps another reason why it feels so good to be outside.)
