Foods High in Vitamin D


Today we’re going to talk about foods high
in Vitamin D. Most of the foods you find in the super market have been fortified with
a synthetic form of Vitamin D, which can be extremely toxic to your body. There are only
a select number of foods that naturally contain Vitamin D. Normally, our body takes in Vitamin
D in the form of sunlight through the skin. But in recent times, where many people spend
countless hours indoors, the actual exposure to the sun is limited. This fact may be a
principle cause of many ailments, including depression. Just so everybody knows, I personally
follow an organic vegetarian based diet, and I use a vegan supplemental form of vitamin
D3 in a serum. I also make sure I get some sunlight every single day. However, because
I’ve received so many requests from people with standard American diets requesting a
list of food sources that contain Vitamin D, I decided to make this video. So here are
the top foods containing Vitamin D. Number one, Shitake and button mushroom. Surprisingly,
the dried versions of shitake mushrooms are high in Vitamin D. This may be due to the
fact that these mushrooms are great at sucking up sunlight. Shitake mushrooms are also rich
in B vitamins like B1 and B2. Make sure that you find mushrooms that have been dried in
the sun, not by artificial means, in order to achieve the benefits of the high Vitamin
D content that they contain. Number two, mackerel. Just a small 3.5 ounce portion of this high
fat omega-3 containing fish will give you 90% of your recommended daily amount in Vitamin
D. Currently, the FDA recommends that people eat more of these oily fishes to infuse their
bodies with more omega-3 essential fatty acids. However, I recommend limiting the intake of
fatty fish due to the mercury content, and the exposure that it may contain. Number 3,
sockeye salmon. A small 3.5 ounce portion of cooked salmon will give you 90% of the
recommended dietary intake of Vitamin D. Make sure you purchase a salmon that has been caught
from the wild, and is as organic as possible. Number four, herring. Herring are also very
high in Vitamin D because they thrive on plankton. And plankton are full of Vitamin D because
they live close to the top of the water, where the sunlight is. Number five, sardines. Sardines
are one of the best food sources of Vitamin D. One small tin can of sardines will provide
you with approximately 70% of your daily needs. These tiny canned fish are also a great source
of Vitamin B12, Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and they’re also high in selenium. Number
six, tuna. Eating three ounces of tuna daily provides 50% of your Vitamin D needs. Fresh,
wild caught tuna is the most nutritious. Remember, eating oily fish can also lubricate the body
with good fats that provide health benefits like better memory and brain function. Number
seven, cod liver oil. If you can stomach the strong aroma, this oil is super rich in Vitamin
D. This golden oil is also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Incorporating this oil into your
diet will help promote healthy and strong bones. Because of its high Vitamin D content,
cod liver oil has also been shown to prevent osteoporosis in adults, improve brain function,
and optimize nervous system function. Number eight, eggs. Eggs are another food that contain
vitamin D in small amounts. Eating one egg daily will provide you with approximately
10% of your daily needs. Eggs should always be free range, from a local farm, if possible.
Those are just some of the foods that contain high levels of Vitamin D. But lets not leave
out the best source, sunshine. One daily dose of sunshine can seriously increase your Vitamin
D intake. In fact, this vitamin has actually been referred to as the sunshine vitamin.
Just 10 to 15 minutes of light daily, stimulates the production of Vitamin D. For more great,

    I take Intramax but it only contains 400 I.U. of Vitamin D so I am planning on ordering your Vit. D supplement. I always took Cod Liver oil until Brian Peskin said fish oils are dangerous to use and recommend Parent Essential Oils (PEOs). According to Dr. Mike Roth who sells Intramax, he doesn't recommend you take any other supplements with this and he was healed of Stage III Lyme Disease so it can be confusing. Intramax is expensive enough without taking more supplements.

    Sun light is always touted as the best source of Vitamin D. What sort of exposure is best? Walking down the street so the sun hits your face and arms?  Or sun bathing where you remove as much clothing as possible so you get exposure to most of your body?

    15 min light per day = direct strong sun?  a) in bathing suit? b) fully dressed= only hands+face are getting sun or aa) directly or bb) cloudy weather
    or even cloudy weather?
    or even inside near the window?

    Remember people, it's not what you eat, it's what you digest. If you want to get the most out of your food, you need to enhance your digestion. Coconut oil and papaya are probably two of the greatest super foods in this world as far as aiding in digestion goes.

    Fellas…. medical evidence suggests that vitamins and nutrients are key to sustaining a high-level of sexual health. But getting the vitamins out of food isn't enough to make an impact. So start using a penis health creme. A good creme will be loaded with vitamins, all of which will be delivered straight to the penis for maximum effectiveness. It's like a multi-vitamin creme for the penis. Tons of guys use one nowadays. Do not be left behind.

    Do you have a vegan way to get vitamin D? My levels are really low and would like to increase it by eating something. I do not like taking vitamins and would rather eat something instead of popping pills or vitamins.. Thanks! 😊
