Vitamin D is essential and helps to regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body as well as serving other important functions. Whilst our own body can generate vitamin D by exposure to the Sun, this is often difficult especially in the winter nothern temperate climates and if you are simply not getting enough sun the following are several healthy food options for Vitamin D:
