Vitamin Deficiencies and Mood Disorders

Did you realize that a vitamin deficiency might be the underlying cause of your mood disorder? Yes, your depression could be directly linked back to your body’s excessive excretion of key mood-stabilizing vitamins and minerals. Aspen Ketamine Center is working hard to help people quickly combat their vitamin deficiencies with vitamin infusions in order to optimize their brain functioning. Food only has a 20% bioavailability, meaning 80% of the nutrients are lost during digestion. Vitamin infusions have a 100% bioavailability, which means your body will fully and quickly absorb all of those precious vitamins.

Vitamins impact overall wellbeing

While eating healthy is a factor in keeping your body’s vitamin levels high, it doesn’t guarantee success. Sometimes the body simply excretes too many vitamins, and you’re left with a deficiency. The fastest way to replenish the vitamins in your body is through a vitamin infusion. Vitamin infusions are packed full of the vitamins that you would otherwise struggle to consume in the large quantities that your mind and body need. Some of the most common deficiencies have been linked to being the underlying biological factor of depression.

Magnesium Deficiencies

It is estimated that nearly 50% of the population has a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium works in the body to help lower blood pressure and reduce stroke, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes risks, improve bone health, and prevent migraines among other things. Thankfully, magnesium glycinate is a supplement that helps to boost magnesium levels in the body. It is easily tolerated and absorbed, making it the perfect ingredient in vitamin infusions.

In a sense, magnesium glycinate is like a miracle worker in the body. There are a number of benefits to supplementing your body’s natural magnesium production with the addition of magnesium glycinate. It works wonders with ketamine infusions to relieve anxiety, making an overall improvement in your mind and body functioning and mood stabilization.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is an incredibly common deficiency in the United States. It travels around in the bloodstream and works in the body like a steroid hormone, directly affecting muscle growth and strength. It also plays a role in serotonin activity. Read more about serotonin in our article about the hormones that affect your mood. There are very few foods that can be used to replenish vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is most commonly associated with spending time in the sun, but too much sun exposure is dangerous. Avoid skin damage caused by excessive time spent in the sun’s harmful rays, and regularly have your skin checked by a dermatologist. Opt for a vitamin infusion to instantly increase the vitamin D in your body. They are much safer alternatives to sun exposure.


Folate, like folic acid, is a form of vitamin b9. The difference between folate and folic acid are that folate is a more natural form that humans can more easily ingest. You can think of folate like a trash truck in the body. It works to clear out homocysteine from the bloodstream. Homocysteine is a byproduct in the bloodstream that is associated with depression among other conditions. Your body also needs folate to help with serotonin production as mentioned before.

B vitamins

A fourth important vitamin in the body is the b vitamin family. Vitamins b12 and b6 have a direct correlation with mental wellbeing. Externally they boost skin and nail health. Internally vitamins b6 and b12 work to support mental health functioning. This study reports that nearly a quarter of women with depression were found to be deficient in vitamin B12.
