Basking in the morning sun or early evening soft sunrays is best the way to benefit from this nutrient. Wear light clothes and don’t wear sunscreen. Avoid staying out too long as you may get sunburns. And, of course, follow the COVID-19 protocols!
Let’s talk FOOD
As it is not naturally present in many foods, here is our list to help you choose your source to get your share of Vitamin D.
The best sources include organ meat like liver, egg yolk, fatty fish, and fish oils. Fortified foods like cereals, milk, yogurt, branded wheat flour, and such lend their ‘D’ strength from this vitamin to you. Moreover, the fish lovers can enjoy their hilsa, mackerel, salmon, and tuna for the same.
