Reply To: Hello,
Does low Vitamin D level correlates with low serotonin level. Is there any evidence. My level is 17 ng/ml. I am suffering from depression and anxiety quite long. Earlier also I have supplimented with Vit D3 (60000 IU/week for 8 week), but highest I could reach up to 31 ng/ml. Now again it below.
Then how to reach upto 50-60 ng/ml to become healthy?
Thanks IAW.Much appreciated. You have given a very clear view.
I don’t take any medicine for depression and anxiety. To cope up with stress full situation at times I have to take clonazepam-0.25 mg/0.125 mg (half pill). I do take it for my heavy sleep disturbances. My weight is 66 kg.I don’t have any gut issue, but I am slightly constipated. Along with my anxiety/depression I have too much of tiredness, joint pain, body pain, brain fog, hair loss etc. I am from India and here doctors are just careless. When my Vit D was 31 ng/ml, then he told to stop because you are normal. When again I did the test after 6 months, it was 17 ng/ml. You are very much right that we should do a continuous supplementation.
Today I will be receiving 5000 IU vitamin D3 (softgel capsules) and start immediately supplementation. I got Magnesium glycinate tablet (200 mg) through amazon and I am taking it last 4 days. Right now I don’t have Vitamin K2. Let me see if get it. I will take Vit D3 (15000 IU) for next 8 weeks and let you know my progress. From my previous experience I can tell you that Vit D3 makes me feel good, the only thing I was not having that the guidance—-that for how many days I need to take. Now I am clear. Also, I have noticed soft gel capsules works better than normal capsule and tablets.
