What is vitamin D?
Vitamin D is an essential fat-soluble vitamin, that is technically a hormone, required by the body for the absorption of calcium, bone development and immune function. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to rickets, a weakened immune system, increased cancer risk, poor hair growth, seasonal depression, dementia and even type 2 diabetes. The current U.S. Daily Value for vitamin D is 600 IU (international units) and the toxicity threshold is thought to be 10,000 to 40,000 IU/day. The best source of vitamin D is when it is naturally made by your body when your skin is exposed to the sun, and can also simply be consumed as a supplement if need be. Also, vitamin D is unnaturally added to many foods such as cereal, milk and orange juice but we don't recommend eating these. The following list is about the top 10 real foods highest in vitamin D.
