Vitamin D is one of the many vitamins our body needs to stay healthy. Our body produces vitamin D when it is exposed to sunlight, however many people are deficient in vitamin D, partly because they spend many hours indoors but also because of a diet low in Vitamin D.
If you want to boost your Vitamin D levels naturally, you may do this with foods. See below:
TOP 5 FOODS HIGH IN VITAMIN D
I personally don’t enjoy to suntan hours a day but I make sure I get lots of good quality vitamin D from my food. Food sources rich in Vitamin D include:
- Egg Yolk
- Fortified foods (if you are strictly vegan)
If you are strictly vegan, you might want to take a blood test to check your vitamin D levels.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOUR VITAMIN D LEVELS ARE LOW
If we don’t have enough vitamin D in our diet, it can affect our bone health. This can often be felt as muscle pain or pain in the bones. Other symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency may include:
- Mood swings
- Lower back ache
VITAMIN D SUPPLEMENTS?
I do not recommend anyone to begin taking Vitamin D supplements BEFORE taking a blood test. In Ayurveda we use food as our natural healing source, however, if your Vitamin D levels are critically low, it might be necessary to take Vitamin D supplements. Always take a blood test first to check your levels.
Low mood and body aches could possibly be a Vata accumulation (meaning your air and water energy is too high), causing you to feel anxious, moody or stressed.
