Description

Scientists who examined 19 studies involving more than 2,000 adults found 65% of participants who had the mental health condition were also Vitamin D deficient. Those with schizophrenia had "significantly" lower levels of Vitamin D in their blood compared to those who did not. People with Vitamin D deficiency were more than twice as likely to have schizophrenia than those with sufficient levels in their blood, according to the study published in the Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
