Vitamin D
Scientists found that vitamin D is likely to be the contributing factor in seasonal depression. It is involved in the synthesis of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. These chemicals are linked to depression.

An interesting fact said by the scientists is that, people with dark skin have lower levels of vitamin D. So the wise thing would be to supplement vitamin D in your diet to avoid all the health problems.

Just think about this scenario, a good morning or an evening jog would give you enough sun exposure as well as lift your spirits. A recent study found that jogging keeps you young.
Scientists say that vitamin D deficient individuals have a higher risk of developing schizophrenia than the general population. 

Vitamin D is essential for your bone and muscle health. Be warned that obesity can lead to lower levels of vitamin D circulating in your body. This sunshine vitamin is essential both for the expectant mothers and their developing embryos.

Mushrooms are a good source of vitamin D and more than that they are tasty too. A study by the researchers at the University of Sydney found that, mushrooms left in the midday winter sun for about an hour greatly enhances its vitamin D content.

Take care,
