According to psychiatrist at the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Christine Crawford, a vitamin D deficiency can cause depression-like symptoms, including mood changes and chronic fatigue.
The researchers warned of the danger of taking vitamin D without obtaining medical advice, given that the body stores excess vitamin D in the form of fat.
The researchers stressed the need to conduct more research and clinical trials to find out the mechanisms of the effect of vitamin D on mood, symptoms of depression and negative thoughts.
