How can you get enough Vitamin D?
The main source of Vitamin D comes from our skin which can produce Vitamin D when exposed to the sun’s ultra violet light.
The second source is food but there are very few foods that contain significant amounts of Vitamin D. Vitamin D can be found naturally in oily fish (salmon, herring and mackerel), egg yolk and dairy foods as well as UV exposed mushrooms. Foods can also be fortified with Vitamin D such as margarine (mandatory), dairy products, dairy alternatives (such as soy milk) as well as breakfast cereals.
When needed, Vitamin D can be prescribed by your Healthcare Professional as a supplement to your diet
