Hi Taking from early morning until noon 2 pm... you can get yourself exposed to sun’s rays for about half hour to get the most out of the rays...by which the liver can synthesize enough vitamin d for that particular day from the rays through skin... This exposure to sun would be enough everyday for one to build stronger and healthy proficiently working immune system...in order to stay healthy... Daily exposure is way very necessary for the system to work better for ever. Thankyou

Hello, Vitin D is required to take per day 500 IU For specific your case  , but 2000 IU if vitamin D deficiency is there. Otherwise sufficient sunlight exposure, or Oily fish , red meat, egg yolk or Liver gives you sufficient Vitamin D. In case of COVID situation, you need to take sufficient amount of Direct protein for sufficient protection & healing. In case any doubt or questions you can ask me directly GOOGLE SEARCH DIETITIAN SOUVIK CHAKRABORTY for any help. Thanks 👍🏻

Vitamin has its source from the sun mainly. So exposure to mild sun in early mornings for 10-15 min is sufficient to get the required amount of vit d.If more exposure to sunlight or intense sunlight is harmful. Or u can intakesalmon fish,fish liver,eggs,fortified cereals,milk,oils,fats .

ICMR recommends a daily supplement of 400 IU/day of vitamin D for Indians under situations of minimal exposure to sunlight. Go with any multivitamin supplements that gives u the above mentioned dose instead of a single d vitamin. (Vitamin D is very crucial one. If you take it with out knowing your present level there will be high chances of toxicities.And when you take vit d, its better to include calcium for better absorption) So kindly check your levels and decide on supplement.

A healthy balanced diet rich in anti oxidant rich foods which are abundantly found in fruits and most of the colourful veggies along with vit-d rich foods is quite essential.If u r unable to meet your vit-d requirement through diet only then u can take vit-d supplements.
