The U.S. National Library of Medicine defines Seasonal Affective Disorder as “a kind of depression that occurs at a certain time of the year, usually in the winter.” With winter quickly approaching, it’s important to know the symptoms of this condition, as well as what treatment options are available. Liquid Health, Inc. offers an all natural, liquid vitamin supplement that may be very beneficial to those suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder may start out mild and become more prevalent as winter goes on. A research project done at the University of Alaska, Anchorage and posted to their website on Dec 15, 2010, lists the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder as follows: depressed mood, decreased interest in pleasurable activities, weight fluctuation without dieting, changes in sleep patterns, psychomotor agitation/retardation, fatigue, worthlessness, difficulty concentrating or making decisions and suicidal ideation. According to the study, “To be diagnosed with SAD, one has to experience five of nine symptoms of depression most of the day everyday for at least two weeks during one season of the year. The symptoms must be disruptive to relationships, school or work.”
One of the reasons Seasonal Affective Disorder is more common in the winter months is because of the decrease in sun exposure most people experience. Sun exposure helps the body produce Vitamin D, so there has long been thought to be a correlation between Seasonal Affective Disorder and Vitamin D levels. The UAA project found that “as serum vitamin D decreased, symptoms of SAD increased.” Liquid Health, Inc. has a liquid vitamin supplement available that can help increase a person’s Vitamin D intake during the winter months and possibly decrease symptoms associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder.
Liquid Health Vitamin D3 is offered in a dropper bottle and is ideal for people who need extra Vitamin D, such as infants, those who have undergone gastric bypass surgery, the elderly and also those who are at risk for developing Seasonal Affective Disorder. A study posted in the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging (1999;3(1):5-7) wanted to test the effectiveness of vitamin D supplementation compared to light therapy when treating Seasonal Affective Disorder. The study found that “all subjects receiving vitamin D improved in all outcome measures.”
This liquid vitamin supplement includes 5000 IU of Vitamin D3 per 1 milliliter serving. According to Brandon Siggard, CEO of Liquid Health, Inc., “We decided to use Vitamin D3 in this product instead of Vitamin D2, because studies have shown that D3 has a higher bioavailability. This means people can see better results from taking Vitamin D3 because their body is able to absorb it better.”
