The cold winter weather means less time spent outdoors, so you might want to consider the amount of vitamin D in your diet. Your body makes vitamin D when your skin is exposed to sunlight and stores the vitamin for later use. While vitamin D performs many functions in the body, it is known best for working with calcium to build and maintain strong bones.
Only a few foods are natural sources of Vitamin D. However, it is added to foods such as milk and some brands of yogurt. A one-cup serving of low-fat milk provides about 25% of the Dairy Value of vitamin D, while a 6-ounce serving of yogurt serves up 10-25%.
Vitamin D is essential. Consider your bones. They’ll be thankful! Learn more about vitamin D.
