Vitamin D, besides being the most easily available one, is also one of the most deficient vitamins in us. Also known as the sunshine vitamin, this essential nutrient plays a major role in cell growth, strengthening bones and teeth, managing diabetes and more. It helps absorb calcium and phosphorus from foods that promote overall nourishment and thus becomes all the more important to be included in our daily diet. A proper intake of vitamin D is also a must to strengthen immunity and prevent viral infections at the time when we are facing a pandemic.
While sunlight is the most potent source of vitamin D, there are several food sources too that you can load up on to meet your vitamin D requirements. Yogurt, milk, egg yolk and fish are some of the most common sources, but did you know mushrooms too are a great source of vitamin D? Yes, you read that right.
