We know that many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), causing in them an increased propensity towards depression during the winter months. One of the contributors to SAD may be the lack of vitamin D that is synthesized in the skin during the winter months since one needs a certain amount of sun exposure for this process to occur. Thus it is not hard to believe that vitamin D deficiency can be a contributor to depression (at any time of the year) and we are starting to gain more hard evidence that indeed this is the case.
