Vitamin D and Depression

According to a national report published last week by the Scientific Advisory Body on Nutrition, a great many of us have worryingly low levels of Vitamin D. This is a problem for one in five adults and one in six children. Vitamin D has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Low levels are associated with a number of physical conditions, including cardio-vascular problems, obesity, cancer and osteoporosis. It is also starting to become linked with depression, although at the moment we aren't sure if low levels of Vitamin D are a cause or an effect of being depressed.
