Are you getting enough Vitamin D? Many people are worried about Vitamin D deficiency, which the Institute of Medicine says has been over-diagnosed in recent years. Unlike other nutrients, Vitamin D isn't really a vitamin at all: It's a hormone, made by your body as you are exposed to sunlight. Whatever it is, it has an important role in maintaining bone strength (its role in fighting other diseases has not been proven). If you eat a varied diet and get some sun (about 20 minutes a day, unfiltered by sunscreen) then you are probably getting all the Vitamin D you need from these sources. Even if you aren't getting enough Vitamin D from sunlight, though, you probably don't need a vitamin supplement, according to the Institute of Medicine. You need some Vitamin D-rich foods, like the ones we feature here. (About 600 iu of Vitamin D daily.) This list includes the foods with the most Vitamin D, according to the USDA.
