There are other ways you can increase vitamin D in your body.
One of the most popular methods is to take supplements to maintain levels of vitamin D in your blood. You can take a vitamin D supplement or combination supplements that contain vitamin D, like multivitamins or other various combinations of vitamin D and other nutrients.
As you take vitamin D, it builds up in your body over time. Although it is rare, taking too much vitamin D (usually by overusing supplements) can be toxic.
Vitamine D and other supplements for depression are not a substitute for psychiatric diagnosis and treatment. Although supplements may not require a prescription, certain supplements are more safely used under the guidance of a physician.
Supplements are not regulated by the FDA like medications, so you should only purchase supplements from brands that have been evaluated for quality. Supplements are not FDA-approved to treat depression.
Vitamin D lamps release UV light that mimics natural sunlight and helps your body to produce vitamin D through your skin naturally.
Intentionally spend time outdoors. In the winter, spend 10-30 minutes outdoors during the warmest part of the day when the sun is out.
