Benefits of Vitamin D and Deficiency


61624725 - foods rich in vitamin d. top view

Vitamin D deficiency is high, especially in the winter months. It is estimated 50% of people are deficient. I have my vitamin D levels tested every year. There are three ways to get vitamin D…..UV light (sunlight), food, and supplements. My levels go up during the Summer, because I am outdoors so much, and they also gets very low in the winter months, so my doctor has me take a supplement. It is a good idea to get your vitamin D levels tested by your doctor, include foods rich in Vitamin D in your diet, and supplement if needed with Vitamin D3. You should not do this on your own, because you can get too much Vitamin D. Vitamin D is supportive to our immune systems, aids calcium absorption, and cardiovascular health. It is a hormone, not a vitamin, and is necessary for our immune systems to function properly. The top food sources in order are, maitake mushrooms, swordfish, sockeye salmon, chanterelle mushrooms, canned tuna fish, fortified orange juice, milk and egg yolks.
