4 Things Robbing You Of Vitamin D

Vitamin D isn’t your regular vitamin that you get from GNC (well, you can, but that’s not the point here). It’s actually a steroid hormone that you primarily obtain through sunlight. Just because you drink milk and consume dairy products doesn’t mean you’re not vitamin D deficient.

Growing research is showing a direct correlation between vitamin D deficiency and depression. Serotonin is the hormone in our brain responsible for our happiness. When we go outside, the serotonin in our body kicks up and sends our joy levels through the roof. If you notice, the more you stay inside the more you’re prone to get ‘in your feelings.’ According to research, you’re 11 times more likely to experience depression if your vitamin D levels are low.
