Vitamin D not only plays an important role in helping our bodies absorb calcium for our skeletal system, but it also helps us maintain the health of our immune system.

Our bodies naturally produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight, and by absorbing small amounts from certain foods.

Today it has be estimated that approximately one billion people worldwide are vitamin D deficient due to limited exposure to the sunshine.

So if you are unable to enjoy enough sunshine this summer, some food that you can add to your diet for a little more vitamin D include:

  • Fish
  • Oysters
  • Caviar
  • Tofu and Soy Milk
  • Fortified Dairy Products
  • Eggs
  • Mushrooms
  • Fortified Cereals
