Why Vitamin D
Why Vitamin D?
Vitamin D helps develop strong bones, muscles, and teeth. Your body produces vitamin D, which helps it to absorb calcium and phosphorus from food that you eat.
Where do I get Vitamin D?
Vitamin D comes from two main resources: direct sunshine and select foods.
When the sun is strong, many people are advised to stay out of direct sunlight without sunblock. Sunblock keeps your skin safe from harmful UV rays, but it also blocks your body’s ability to produce vitamin D.
Few foods are naturally high in vitamin D and some have vitamins added to them (fortified foods). You can find vitamin D in foods like eggs, milk and fish - just to name a few.
How much vitamin D do I need?
The answer depends on several factors, including your age and where you live.
To get enough vitamin D from the sun or food alone is difficult. For example, you will need to eat at least a carton of eggs* just to get your minimum daily intake. That’s a lot of eggs! This is why supplements are a welcomed option.
