Vitamin D rich foods

Posted Dec 13 2008 10:22pm

Longtime Beauty Brains community members know how we do not encourage the use of vitamin supplements. In the US, these products are not regulated and can be dangerous. And Vitamin D is especially dangerous because it can be toxic at high levels. Your best bet is to avoid supplements and eat real food. So instead of recommending vitamin supplements, we thought we’d list the best foods you can eat to get your vitamin D. Included are the amount of IU and the serving size.

Cod liver oil - 1 TB - 1360 IU

Salmon - 3.5oz - 360 IU

Mackerel - 3.5oz - 345 IU

Sardines - 1.75 oz - 250 IU

Tuna - 3 oz - 200 IU

Milk - 8oz - 98 IU

Margarine - 1 TB - 60 IU

Dry cereal - 1 cup - 40 IU

Egg - 1 - 20 IU

Liver - 3.5 oz - 15 IU

Swiss Cheese - 1oz - 12 IU
