The winter season can be a magical time of year for many people. With Christmas and the potential for cooler temperatures and maybe the occasional snow, this may be the favorite part of the year for some. However, for others, it is also the time of year where seasonal affective disorder otherwise known as the winter blues can disrupt daily routines and leave them searching for a fix. One of the most popular methods for treating winter blues is vitamin D, which most people naturally get from a combination of diet and sunlight. However, with colder temperatures, many do not get enough sunlight and vitamin D, which can lead to a lack of motivation, a disturbance in sleep patterns, increased irritability, and sadness. If you are looking to improve your mental or physical health this winter season and stave off the winter blues, learn more about the importance of vitamin D and how Regen IV Wellness can help.
Vitamin D and Your Immune System
There have been numerous medical studies that show vitamin D to be a huge boon for your immune system and fighting serious ailments like MS, heart disease, and even the flu. Many individuals find that they are sick more often during the winter and attribute it mainly due to the cold weather; however, the main causes of sickness usually take root because people are confined in close quarters and may not be getting enough vitamin D. Supplementing your vitamin D consumption can help improve your overall health and keep you in peak condition.
Vitamin D and your Mental Health
Seasonal depression or the Winter Blues can be a major concern for many people, but scientists have found that vitamin D might play an important role in regulating mood and warding off depression. Specifically, a study has shown that people with depression who received vitamin D supplements noticed an improvement in their symptoms. A later study also found that vitamin D deficiency was more common in those experiencing anxiety and depression.
