    A good question, ingridcarley. Some of the best sources of foods naturally high in vitamin D are sardines, herring, mackerel and Alaskan salmon. Eggs are good too, especially if they are organic. Other foods could be added to the list but the percentage of vitamin D is small, and in processed foods it's only added by the manufacturer.

    Your very best source of vitamin D is exposure to sunlight between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Depending on how much privacy you have on a sunny day, try to expose as much of your torso as possible to the sun's UVB rays. If you must be outside in the morning or afternoon hours, better to cover up. Whenever the sun is lower in the sky, you are exposed to UVA rays, not UVB. The UVA rays are the ones that cause wrinkling and make your skin leathery. Midday sun does not cause cancer; it's the period when the sun's rays are safest!

    You can also supplement with vitamin D, but you will need to use a couple of specfic supplements with it. If you'd like more information on supplementing, just ask.
