Vitamin D ... Your weapon against diseases in 8 foods


Vitamin "D" is one of the most important vitamins for general health and protection from various diseases, whether physical or even psychological and nervous.

 Research indicates that vitamin D may help treat or prevent autoimmune diseases, cancer, depression, chronic pain, heart disease and even osteoporosis.

 In addition to the most important roles of vitamin D in helping to absorb calcium, regulate the immune system, and support cell shrinkage.

 Studies confirm that there is almost no health aspect for which this vitamin is not beneficial.

 Despite this importance, close to 50% of the world's population lacks vitamin D, possibly because it is found in fewer foods compared to other vitamins.


 "Algaecal" website quoted a team of doctors confirming the presence of vitamin "D" in abundance in a group of foods, which they advise humans to eat, the most important of which are:

 Wild salmon

 The best natural source of vitamin "D" is fatty fish, and a 2009 study found that wild salmon contains 988 international units of vitamin D compared to 3.5 ounces (300 grams).

 Farmed salmon is said to contain about 25% as much vitamin D as wild salmon.

 Canned sardines in oil

 Canned sardines contain good body ingredients, as are all fatty fish, as they are rich in unsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s).  But it also contains vitamin D.

 Studies say that a 100-gram serving of sardines, equivalent to one can, is half of the daily recommended vitamin D requirement.

 Raw oysters

 Although it is not the most appealing food to some, raw oysters are low in calories and high in nutrients.

 Raw oysters are one of the most good food sources of vitamin D, and 6 pieces of raw oysters contain 269 international units of vitamin D.

 Cod liver oil

 It is a classic omega-3 fatty acid and a great source of vitamin D since it was recommended in the 1960s.  But some still prefer to eat a can of tuna or fresh wild salmon instead.


 Low in fat compared to other seafood sources, and rich in vitamin D, especially 4 types of large shrimp contain 11% of the required amount of vitamin "D" daily.


 Shrimp also contains vitamin A, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.


 Caviar is salted roe (fish egg) that can be eaten fresh or pasteurized.  It can be eaten on its own, on a biscuit, or even scrambled eggs.

 And black or red caviar contains 37 international units of vitamin D in just one tablespoon.


 While egg protein is found mostly in the egg white, vitamin D is found in the egg yolk.

 The yolk contains about 5% of your RDI of vitamin D.


 Edible mushrooms are an important source of vitamin D, and it is the only plant that contains this essential vitamin. 

 Experts say there are 2 micrograms of vitamin D for every 100 grams of mushrooms.

 The types of mushrooms "Portobello, morel, Button, White and Shiitake all contain ergosterol."
