Hello there..... Vitamin D is found in many foods, including fish, eggs, fortified milk, and cod liver oil. The sun also adds to the body's daily production of vitamin D, and as little as 10 minutes of exposure is thought to prevent deficiency..... Exposure to sunlight is the richest source of vitamin D... Consult your Physician regarding supplements...
