Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


In addition to taking my prenatal vitamins, what are the best sources of vitamin D that provide the most benefits?

Answered by Dr. Shoroq Elbeshbeshy


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


Thanks for your inquiry about vitamin D. Vitamin D is important for our health, strong bones, and teeth. In terms of its sources, it can be obtained from several sources. The most important source is sunlight, as our skin produces vitamin D when exposed to it. Other natural sources include fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, as well as egg yolk and certain types of mushrooms. Dairy foods and orange juice are also good sources of vitamin D.
