People in Europe and children especially are the most deficient. We’ve bought in to this fear that we shouldn’t expose ourselves to the sun, but the exact opposite is true. The health benefits of sun exposure are too many to mention, but it comes with a caveat – don’t burn!
Sunlight: Vitamin D is most readily sourced from UVB rays of sunlight. It is not the easiest vitamin to source from food, but here is a list of foods rich in Vitamin D. It is also wise to add a food-based Vitamin D supplement to your diet
Recommend foods: Portabello and Maitake mushrooms, salmon, swordfish and trout, fortified cereals, fortified dairy products, soy and almond milk, tofu, egg yolks
Pork products: Despite their Vitamin D content, pork, especially processed pork, is high in saturated fats which are linked to high blood pressure and heart disease
Vitamin D Supplements: Like virtually all vitamin and mineral supplements, vitamin D is created as a synthetic equivalent to food Vitamin D. Our Foodstate is the biologically active form with active metabolites, rather than the more common inactive form that get stored in the organs in synthetic form
