    Vitamin D and folic acid deficiencies could contribute to depression (2011/12/23)

    While depression may appear increasingly common, similar symptoms can be caused by nutritional deficiencies. Doctors advise that folic acid and vitamin D are both key to emotional balance. And, sufficient exposure to the sun is also another mood-booster.

    Frustration and mild depression are common features in daily life. While contributing factors include illness and genetics, the lack of critical nutrients may also be a cause for feeling blue.

    I’ve seen six to eight patients recently who lack vitamin D and folic acid. This affects the cerebral regions, and also the conduction of nerve signals.

    Doctors recommend a balanced diet of fish, liver, dairy products and protein, which prevent osteoporosis, heart disease and cancer. Meanwhile, broccoli, spinach, citrus and tomatoes all contain abundant folic acid, which prevents anemia, neural defects, and assists brain function.

    If there is sufficient exposure to the sun for around five to ten minutes a day, and a balanced intake of vegetables and citrus, the condition will improve.

    Doctors added that in addition to balanced nutrition, exercise and getting enough sleep also contribute to emotional health.
