However, contrary to the researchers’ hypothesis, maternal vitamin D status was significantly and positively associated with depression in children.

Mothers transfer their nutrients to their child throughout pregnancy. Because of this, maternal nutrition plays a vital role for the optimal growth and development of the child.

  1. I keep seeing a number of studies showing adverse issues with vitamin D levels above 50ng/ml. I really question this for several reasons. There can’t be many in these studies with the higher levels as for most people it takes relatively high doses to reach these levels. I would be interested in the thoughts of any vit D researchers.
