Sunshine Vitamin D
What Is Vitamin D?
Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential for the body’s overall health and functioning. It plays a crucial role in several important processes within the body. While sunlight is a primary source, Vitamin D can also be obtained from certain foods. Fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and tuna, as well as cod liver oil, are excellent sources of Vitamin D. Additionally, small amounts can be found in egg yolks, cheese, and fortified dairy products.
