Get More Vitamin D: Healthy Foods to Add to Your Diet
Vitamin D is crucial for protecting against cancer, diabetes, depression, and heart disease. Although the recommended daily dose of vitamin D is 400 international units (IU), new research suggests taking at least 1,700 IU of vitamin D daily to get its health benefits. And while sunshine is the best source of vitamin D, you can still load up on the vitamin by adding these vitamin D-rich foods to your diet.
It's time to put down the Lucky Charms: one cup of fortified breakfast cereal has 40 IU, or 10 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin D. You'll also get more energy from iron and vitamin B, giving you plenty of reasons to make time for a healthy morning breakfast.
