The importance of vitamin D

Vitamin D plays a vital role in our bodies. It helps regulate the absorption of phosphorous and calcium, ensures that our immune system is functioning well, and is essential for good bone and tooth health.

Vitamin D helps our bodies fight disease, ward off flu, and may even help to regulate our moods.

When your body is directly exposed to the sun, it produces its own vitamin D! That’s why it’s called the sunshine vitamin.

It’s tough, though, to get all the vitamin D you need through sun exposure alone.

The following foods are an excellent (and delicious) source of vitamin D:

  • Egg yolks

  • Salmon

  • Fortified milk

  • Fortified orange juice

  • Sardines

Talk to your doctor about whether or not you should consider taking a vitamin D supplement.
