Vitamin D is nicknamed "the happiness vitamin." Research shows that getting enough vitamin D may help prevent and treat depression, so make sure you're getting enough.
The best source of vitamin D is sunlight, which may be part of the reason we feel happier in the warmer months when the days are longer.
Eat a balanced diet that includes eggs, fatty fish, mushrooms, fortified milk, orange juice, and oatmeal, which are all good sources of this vitamin D.
Nutrients that support your mind and mood include omega-3s, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin B16, vitamin B12, and folate.
