All mammals can naturally synthesise vitamin D from cholesterol via sunlight. All ingested forms of vitamin D are actually additives or supplementary; there is no vitamin D in milk or other staple foods (it is added, and therefore not natural). Strictly speaking, vitamin D is not a vitamin at all, as a vitamin is, by definition, a chemical compound that cannot be synthesised by an organism.


Few foods contain Vitamin D. The best source is sunlight. Foods that do contain Vitamin D are: cod liver oil, oily fish (trout, salmon, mackerel, tuna, tilapia, etc.), tofu, and caviar (fish eggs). Many dairy products and cereals are fortified with Vitamin D. Vitamin D food are found in any grocery store. Fish can be canned or frozen. Some may have fish in the meat department.

Foods that have a high amount of Vitamin D in them are Cod Liver Oil, Fish, Oysters, Fortified Cereals, Caviar, Ham, Eggs, Soy Products, and Mushrooms.


No they do not. Land plants do not contain ergosterol; the precursor to vitamin D production. Vitamin D is synthesized in the skin of mammals through exposure of the skin to sunlight. Vitamin D can also be ingested in suppliment form or from foods including yeasts and from mushrooms.

Your question depends upon what kind of natural vitamin D you are talking about and what kind of vitamin D pills you are talking about. There are two kinds of natural Vitamin D. 1)Sunshine is the best and most efficient way to get your Vitamin D. If you are fair skinned, you can make up to 20,000 IU of Vitamin D in one half hour of full body exposure. A feedback loop prevents you from EVER overdosing on Vitamin D from sunshine. 2) Natural Vitamin D is present in only a few foods - fatty fish and sun exposed mushrooms being the only real significant sources. There is no real difference between natural food source vitamin D and synthetic pills. The only difference is that it would be next to impossible to overdose on food sourced vitamin D. The answer to the question of synthetic Vitamin D pills, is that there are 2 kinds. Vitamin D2 is the most common kind, and the only kind found in prescription Vitamin D pills and shots. Some researchers claim that Vitamin D2 should not be used for supplementation or enrichment of foods due to its decreased potentcy. Vitamin D3 is less common in supplements, but is absorbed much better and has a longer half-life, making it the clear winner for human supplementation


A couple of common diseases caused by vitamin D deficiency are Rickets and osteomalacia.


Milk is fortified with vitamin D that helps with the absorption of calcium. This supports phosphate levels leading to healthier bones.


Very few foods in nature contain vitamin D. The flesh of fish (such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel) and fish liver oils are among the best sources . Small amounts of vitamin D are found in beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks. Vitamin D in these foods is primarily in the form of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) and its metabolite 25(OH)D3 . Some mushrooms provide vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) in variable amounts Most people meet their vitamin D needs through exposure to sunlight



Vitamin D can be found in foods other than milk. If you like to eat dairy products such as yogurt and cheese, these will supply you with vitamin D. Spending a few minutes in the sun each day will cause your body to make its own vitamin D. If you avoid both dairy and the sun, a vitamin D supplement can be helpful.


Rickets is caused due to deficiency of vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D is required for proper absorption of Calcium in the body and calcium is required for healthy bones. Sufficient amount of Vitamin D can be obtained by exposure to sun light [especially in the morning]. foods like egg, green leafy vegetables and pulses contain sufficient vitamin D required for our body.


Vitamin D can be made in our bodies- in the skin to be exact, but only if sunlight is available to carry out the synthesis. vitamin D or calciferol, is a fatsoluble vitamin. It exists in several forms, each with a different biological activity. Vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is made by the body and is found in some foods. Vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) is the form most often added to milk and other foods, and the form most often found in nutrtion supplements.
