How To Get Vitamin D During Winter
Vitamin D deficiency can cause cancer, heart disease, diabetes, MS and tuberculosis.
All you need is 10-15 minutes of sun shine on 40% of your skin per day. This might be really easy during summer. But how do you get enough vitamin D during winter?
One god thing is that vitamin D is fat soluble which means that it stays in your body. You don’t have to get your daily doses every single day. However during cold weather it is almost impossible to get enough just from sunshine.
The supermarkets are full of foods fortified with a synthetic form of Vitamin D. However there are only a select number of foods that are naturally high in vitamin D.
The foods highest in vitamin D are:
- Shiitake & Button Mushrooms
Cold water fish is the best alternatives and you could also consider taking a fish oil supplement.
