Vitamin D

Have you had a blood test that has shown low levels of Vitamin D?

Here are a few tips of how to up your daily intake…

  • Eating foods that are naturally high in vitamin D, for example:
    • Tuna, mackerel, and salmon (not tinned) – as they are high in good fats and oils
    • Orange juice & soy milk
    • Cereals
    • Mushrooms
    • Cheese
    • Egg yolks
  • Having enough exposure to sun light, around 20-25 minutes in summer around 10 am – 3pm
  • Purchasing a vitamin supplement; the recommended daily intake is 1000 units. Please consult your pharmacist or local health food store.
