Foods people that have vitamin D deficiency should consume regularly

Nutritional supplementation with Vitamin D is essential for bone health because it helps the body's serum calcium levels, which are essential for cell growth and development, nerve transmission, and bone mineralization, remain at an optimal level.

As an immune system booster, vitamin D is essential in the fight against osteoporosis, cancer, depression and all five of the aforementioned chronic diseases, as well as obesity and type 2 diabetes.

According to Healthline, below are some foods people with low level of vitamin D should eat regularly


According to Healthline, mushrooms are a good source of numerous B vitamins and potassium. Shiitake, portobello, morel and chanterelle mushrooms all have different levels of vitamin D. Mushrooms that have been treated to ultraviolet radiation to increase their vitamin D content can also be purchased. My favourite way to incorporate them into my diet is by making omelettes and salads with them.

Egg yolk

This is yet another reason why we should consume the entire egg. There is only one source of vitamin D in eggs: the yolk. Eggs also include all of your essential amino acids, as well as choline and good fats, making them an excellent source of nutrition. Free-range or pastured eggs provide four to six times as much vitamin D as conventional eggs.

Cod liver oil

In addition to being an excellent source of vitamin D, cod liver oil provides an abundance of vitamin A and omega-3 fatty acids. If you have trouble with the flavor, try taking it as a capsule.

Many of us are deficient in vitamin D since it is difficult to find in the foods we eat daily. Adding these nutrient-dense items to our diet is essential. Get some extra vitamin D this summer by adding mushrooms to your omelette, opting for salmon or sardines as your protein source, and soaking up some rays.


A good source of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, and protein, salmon is an excellent choice. Wild salmon can be eaten raw, baked, pan-seared, or canned for convenience and cost savings.
