Vitamin D Supplementation May Benefit Mental Health

People with elevated with blood sugar can be 2 to 3 times more likely to struggle with mood, stress and eating disorders. According to a new review of studies involving diabetics, supplementation with vitamin D may have a beneficial effect on mood and other measures of mental health.

Researchers from the Institute of Human Nutrition Sciences evaluated 6 clinical studies that looked at the effect of vitamin D supplementation on mental health. Supplementation lasted for at least 12 weeks and up to 6 months. The mental health outcomes analyzed included depression, anxiety, health-related quality of life, and stress.

The researchers found that vitamin D supplementation was associated with beneficial effects on depression and anxiety in diabetics. They also found that vitamin D supplementation combined with mindfulness training had a beneficial effect on health-related quality of life.

The study was published online ahead of print on October 20, 2021, in the journal Nutrients.
