    Once again, the headline gets it wrong regarding this study.
    Popping D3 pills does nothing for anybody and is no cure for anything. This study is about remediating vitamin D deficiency.
    Get an objective, diagnostic test that validates any deficiency, then seek natural sunlight exposure if possible.

      My understanding is that for those of us in more northerly latitudes only in high summer are we able to get sufficient sunlight to produce the proper amount of D. I don’t know about you but what I usually hear is essentially, “Goeth, Thou to The Outside! It be all like Magic! The Great D! The Great D!”.
      Seldom do I hear anything about how much a receding Sun is less and less effective. The Science becomes more like Magic and incantations.
      Hearest, thou different in the lay press, goodly dude?

      How’s vitamin D supplementation and the outcomes of lupus, IBD, Crowns, IBS, MS, bacterial infections, Covid infection, BREAST, COLON, PANCREATIC, LUNG cancer, TBI, herpes, shingles, sickle cell, skin rash, sunburn, oral health etc etc etc?

      Look it up my clueless pigeon and get thee to a supplement store.

        Learn to read; before popping D, have diagnostic tests to validate any deficiencies.
        Did you miss that?
        And the best way to mitigate a D3 deficiency is natural sunlight “if possible”.
        Did you miss that?
        I encounter more stupidity on the internet, but I guess you missed that.

        He’s just a very dim lightbulb. His statements are self-contradictory, non sequitur, and factually incorrect….but he’s SURE of them…lol.

      Sunlight and being outdoors doesn’t take a scientist to figure out. Just go outside.

      I can tell from you vapid and contradictory statements that you’re probably functionally illerated but you’re wrong from you initial 2 statements. Whether you agree with the conclusions or not, whether you prefer sunlight to supplements, the study was indeed about Vitamin D supplementation. Simple, outright lies, don’t speak well of your character.

    No secret here. Vitamin D is and has been known to increase dopamine production for years. Think about it … beaches are full of happy people, while the depressed sit at home in the dark.

    Which is why the old Swiss sanatoriums had patients stay outside in lounge chairs for most the day in the bright sunlight. Worked. Massive D exposure. Btw: D from the sun is not toxic. D from pills can get toxic if one takes too much.

      Stop scaring people unless you will provide adequate documentation of excessive dosages. Do I tell you to not drink too much water because it can kill you?

      THANK YOU!
      These supplement loving dolts are always looking for some soft, east way.
      And the companies selling this bunk exploit this herd of fools.

        They shop at our Whole Foods because they want “natural” food, but then push chemicals on people for depression and gender disphoria?

    the heat while outside. works for me !

    What’s wrong with people on here. They can’t even be civil with each other over whether vit. D is or isn’t beneficial in treating depression. Everyone has the right to their opinion and every replyer should respectfully agree or disagree to those comments. Stop with the nastiness because its negative and we don’t need anymore negativity in this world. May God bless you all.
