Vitamin D Food Sources

Green Tea

Vitamin D food sources are becoming more important as there is more and more information coming out about the importance of Vitamin D. It is important to recognize that the best source of it is from proper exposure of our skin to sunlight because sunlight brings so many other benefits and avoids the problems of the traditional animal-based food sources. However, we need enough Vitamin D and have to get it from some where. (There are also inexpensive supplemental forms.)

Here are some of the commonly-recognized food sources of Vitamin D:

  1. Cod liver oil
  2. Salmon
  3. Mackerel
  4. Tuna fish
  5. Sardines
  6. Milk, nonfat, reduced fat, and whole, vitamin D-fortified
  7. Margarine, fortified
  8. Ready-to-eat cereal, fortified
  9. Egg yolk
  10. Liver, beef
  11. Cheese, Swiss

I have seen the suggestion that certain plant products also contain vitamin D but want to find more information on this. I will post any information I find. The foods mentioned are sunflower greens, wheatgrass juice, chickweed. Another source said that: "Most vegetables are low in Vitamin D, but green leafy vegetables are also a good source."

Now there is a new source of Vitamin D that is entirely vegan and it contains enough to make a difference. This is a new product as of May 2012 that will be especially appreciated by vegans - most commercially-available vitamin D3 supplements are made from sheep's wool. Learn more about Veggie D. This product also contains powders from a variety of dried veggies, hence the name. There are significant amounts of lycopene, an important antioxidant from tomatoes. The dried parsley is high in apigenin, apowerful anioxidant flavone that can inhibit, delay or reverse the creation of new cancer cells (Pharm Res 2010 June; 27(6):962-978.)

The video posted on my benefits of Vitamin D page mentions that greens are a good source of Vitamin D. I am trying to get the book by Dr. Dowd to see what he says about that.
