Combat Winter Blues, Colds and Flu with Vitamin D

As we are now approaching winter where our exposure to sunlight will be very limited, it is important to ensure that our vitamin D levels are kept within optimum levels. This is particularly important as vitamin D can enhance our immune response against various infections which are more common during winter such as tuberculosis, influenza and viral upper respiratory tract infections. It is also supportive of mental health conditions such as Seasonal Affective Disorders (SAD) and depression, whereby vitamin D supplementation portrayed effectiveness in reducing depressive symptoms in SAD patients.
