Vitamin D May Help Teens' Depression

In this new study, vitamin D supplementation was found to improve symptoms of depression in adolescents with vitamin D deficiency. The individuals included in this study were depressed adolescents and vitamin D deficient. Well-being and symptoms related to depression and vitamin D status were evaluated with WHO-5 well-being scale, The Mood and Feelings Questionnaire (MFQ-S), and a vitamin D deficiency scale.

Results of vitamin D supplementation included increased well-being, improvements in depressed feelings, irritability, tiredness, mood swings, sleep difficulties, weakness, concentration and pain.

Findings suggest supplementation of vitamin D may be useful in ameliorating of symptoms of depression in adolescents.
