|Fortified milk is a good source of vitamin D.|
If you are out in the sun all day everyday, then you need not be concerned. Your body will manufacture all the vitamin D it needs from the ultraviolet light you absorb.
However, if like the majority, yours is an indoor life; you may not be getting enough of this vitamin.
And to compound the problem, there are not that many foods that have it.
- Fortified milk seems to be America's primary source for vitamin D.
- Other dairy products also have a smattering of it.
- Fish foods have vitamin D. Swordfish and and especially sockeye salmon are the big two. Tuna comes in third. And if you want to give yourself a mega-dose, a tablespoon of cod liver oil will give you over 300% of the body’s daily requirement.
- Liver has it.
- Fortified orange juice has a decent amount.
- Multivitamins generally have 100% to 200% of the recommended daily dosage. Needless to say, check the label.
