Vitamin D is lacking to increase the risk of depression to 75% of elderly people after studying in Trinity College (Dublin) in Dublin (Ireland) after four years of research.
To achieve this conclusion, the specialists analyzed the health data of 3,965 people over 50 years old and were reviewed two to four years later, with 400 people depressed.
Robert Briggs, one of the participating scientists, has said "the most comprehensive and most representative study of the state of the depression and vitamin D" in older adults in Ireland. "
In this way, the researchers believe that Vitamin D is to protect the anti-weariness associated with aging, even if there are more studies to be needed, in this case.

According to MedlinePlus, foods with vitamins D are naturally available:
- Egg, such as salmon, tuna and mackerel
- Cow liver
