  • Eggs are a good source of Vitamin D, but you would have to eat 8 egg yolks to get the same amount of Vitamin D that is in 2 cups of milk or fortified milk alternatives. That’s a lot of cholesterol and saturated fat! Get your Vitamin D from a variety of foods such as milk and milk alternatives, oily fish (salmon, mackerel or trout), mushrooms, margarine, fortified cereals and fortified orange juice. You can also ask your doctor or dietitian about supplements.
  • Vitamin D helps body absorb and use calcium and phosphorus from foods. Calcium and phosphorus are minerals that work together with Vitamin D to make strong bones. Vitamin D can also help with muscle function, improve our immune system and reduce inflammation. 
  • There is some evidence to show that Vitamin D may be linked to a reduced risk of cancer. However, we’re not sure why this is or whether it is Vitamin D or some other factor that is responsible for the lower risk. More studies are needed before we can say for sure whether Vitamin D definitely reduces the risk of cancer.
