Vitamin D

Your body makes it from exposure to the sun.




10ug (RDI)


Vitamin D, or the 'sunshine vitamin', is made by your skin with sun exposure. It is difficult to get enough vitamin D from food alone. Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium for the normal development and maintenance of healthy teeth and bones and plays a role in immune responses, regulation of insulin and phosphorus metabolism. Vitamin D is extremely stable and little or no loss occurs during processing and storage of foods.


Veggy tip

Always getting teary over onions? Cutting onions releases a gas that causes a stinging sensation when it comes into contact with your eyes. Those tears are your body’s way of fighting back to dilute the irritant, so let it all out.
