Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally obtained from exposing uncovered skin to sunlight ☀️ In particular, ultraviolet B (UVB) rays shine onto the skin. The skin then generates a precursor that is altered into an active vitamin D form in the kidneys and liver.

Vitamin D supports bone health. It also helps with the absorption and retention of calcium and phosphorus in the body. Many tissues and organs in the human body have vitamin D receptors, denoting the vitamin’s critical roles in insulin regulation, fertility support, cardiovascular health, and immune, brain, and nervous system support.

Along with exposure to natural light, you can also improve your vitamin D levels by eating vitamin D rich foods such as:
🍣 Fatty fish
🥛 Fortified milk
🍳 Egg yolks
🥣 Fortified breakfast cereals

You may also consider getting a vitamin D IV therapy at our Toronto clinic. Call (416) 922-4114 to book an appointment!
