This Sparked Me!

Another vitamin to fight depression. The RDA for folic acid is 400 mcg a day. Take to your doctor if you are depressed about this vitamin and others. Depressed people tend to have low levels of omega-3 fatty acids, add omega 3's to your diet to feel better. Vitamin C deficiency has been found in depressed people. A 1000-mg supplement morning and night...your body will use what ut needs.

    My doctor put me on Vitamin D after finding my level was low. He said low Vitamin D was a contributing factor to depression.
