What Is Vitamin D

Vitamin D has a critical role in helping the body maintain health, primarily it helps control the levels of calcium and phosphate within the body. Having low levels of vitamin D can lead to serious illnesses. 

Sources of Vitamin D

Vitamin D is found in some foods such as eggs and oily fish. The primary natural source of vitamin D is direct sunlight. When exposed to the sun vitamin D forms under the skin.

Foods That Contain Vitamin D

  • fish liver oils
  • egg yolks
  • canned tuna and sardines

The body can suffer from a lack of vitamin D if you don't get enough sunshine, or expose your skin to direct sunlight, have milk allergies or engage in strict vegan lifestyle.
