This study, conducted by the Loyola University Chicago, investigated the effect of vitamin D on improving mood (depression and anxiety) and mental and physical health in women with type 2 diabetes. 50 women with type 2 diabetes and significant depressive symptoms were enrolled in this study. For six months, the participants received a weekly dose of 50,000 IU (1250 µg) of vitamin D. The research team found a significant reduction in depression and anxiety and improved mental health after the supplementation period. This means that vitamin D can improve mood and health in women with type 2 diabetes. More details can be found in the study.
