We get most of our vitamin D from just being outdoors exposed to sunlight and UV rays, where is produced under our skin. So in this sense, Vitamin D isn’t really a vitamin, it’s a chemical reaction kick started by hormones.
The two varieties that are used by humans are vitamins D2 and D3. D3 is the more common of the two.
The top foods high in vitamin D are:
Oily Fish and cod liver oil
Oily fish is super high in Omega 3 and the hugely popular Cod liver oil contains safe and natural levels of vitamin D including Vitamin A. Herring are another great fish full of vitamin D that people often neglect, oily fish leads the top foods high in vitamin D.
Oysters are a great source of vitamin D and high in many other vitamins and minerals.
This includes Salami, Ham, and Sausages etc.
