Foods High in Vitamin D - Health Benefits Of Vitamin D
by Douglas Nino
deficiency of vitamin D can cause to the body you should take proper diet that
enables vitamin D intake in sufficient amount.

The most common and widely known source of vitamin D in food is through animal
products like milk and eggs. Egg yolk is considered to contain Vitamin D in moderate
amount. If you take an egg daily then it will provide you 10% of Vitamin D in your
diet. It can also be found in fish oil. Sardine fishes that are found in tins easily
nowadays can provide you almost 70 % of Vitamin D daily. Fresh caught tuna in 3
ounces can be taken to supply about 50% of Vitamin D that your body requires daily.
Herring and cat fish are also found to be good sources of Vitamin D because they
feed on plankton which is a part of sea life and creates Vitamin D from sunlight in
good amount. Some other sources of this vitamin are mackerel and sockeye salmon.

Studies have also proved that vitamin D can also be found in dried shiitake
mushrooms in excessive amount. These mushrooms are rich in Vitamin D because of
sucking sunlight. But for using shiitake mushrooms to supply Vitamin D to the body
make sure that you get mushrooms that have dried up under the sun naturally and
not by any artificial means. Only shiitake mushrooms dried under the sun will enable
you to take benefits from Vitamin D effectively.

Hence we need to take in high vitamin D foods to fulfill our body needs. Our body
needs Vitamin D for bone growth and development and for maintaining calcium in the
body. It is also responsible for leveling blood flow. Vitamin D deficiency can cause
certain health problems and diseases in your body and can even form cancer in some
parts.
