Four Foods High in Vitamin D

Vitamin D is the only nutrient that your body produces when exposed to sunlight. Unfortunately, most people in the U.S. do not get enough sun exposure and are deficient in vitamin D.

The recommended daily value (DV) is 800 IU (20 mcg) of vitamin D per day from the foods you eat.

Foods High in Vitamin D

If you are not getting enough sunlight and don’t eat foods high in vitamin D, you should most likely take a supplement. Consider taking 600 to 800 IU of vitamin D (D3, the natural form of vitamin D).

Four Foods That Are High in Vitamin D:

1- Salmon: 3.5-ounce (100-gram) contains 526 IU of vitamin D or 66% of the DV

2- Sardines: one can (3.8 ounces) contains 177 IU or 22% of the DV:

3-  Egg Yolks: Two egg yolks contain 37 IU of vitamin D or 10% of the DV

4- Mushrooms: Good plant source of D2 (whereas animals produce vitamin D3).
