Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Can Vitamin D improve or prevent low mood or depression?

Bottom-line:
The present evidence does not support prescribing (or testing) Vitamin D in the treatment or prevention of low mood or depression. Most randomized controlled trials (RCTs) found no effect and the few that found small benefits are at very high risk of bias.
