Sad During the Winter?
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
Many people suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, otherwise known as SAD, during the fall and winter when there is less exposure to sunlight. Sunlight triggers the production of serotonin, a chemical in the brain that helps regulate mood, among other things. Many people have found that supplementation with Vitamin D can help. Talk with your doctor to see if this might be a good strategy for you.
