4 ways to fight coronavirus with the aid of vitamin D



A major natural source of vitamin D is sunlight and quarantine and social distancing can make it hard to get as much of that as we used to. Side effects of low vitamin D can include fatigue, more frequent infections including cold and flu, and depressed mood. Here are the best ways to add more vitamin D to you routine.

1. GET OUTSIDE EVEN WHILE SOCIALLY DISTANCING

Sunlight is the best natural source of vitamin D, according to Taub-Dix. However, in order to get it, your skin needs to be directly exposed so your body can produce the nutrient. While sunscreen is important to protects the health of your skin.

2. EAT FOOD THAT CONTAIN VITAMIN D

Eggs, fish and liver are all high in vitamin D. It can be easily added to your diet in the form of natural food. Fatty fish, including tuna and salmon, are high in vitamin D. Eggs are also a tenth of your recommended vitamin D needs per serving. Beef liver, while not everyone's favorite food, is also a good source of vitamin D in addition to other essential nutrients.

3. TAKING VEGETABLE THAT IS RICH IN VITAMIN D

If you're vegan, mushrooms are also a good source of vitamin D. Surprisingly, the richest dietary source of vitamin D doesn't come from animals at all. The humble mushroom is a great source of the nutrient, and often even more. So when dried, such it's been treated with UV light as part of its processing.

4. SUPPLIMENTS OF VITAMIN D

Supplements can help around out your vitamin needs. If you're still concerned about meeting your daily vitamin needs, supplements can help, many foods are already fortified with vitamin D when you buy 

them in the store-these include milk, breakfast cereal, bread, and orange juice. If that's not enough, you can consider a supplement. However, since supplements aren't regulated by the FDA it can be hard to know what you're getting. So it is best to leave the vitamin pills as a last resort. No amount of vitamins can prevent or cure any disease, including the corona virus. Too much can even make you sick.
