Foods High In Vitamin D

Here is a list of the foods high in vitamin D. Both fish meat and fish liver oils have the largest quantity per serving. Here you will also fin the amount of vitamin D per serving.

Some foods have limited amounts of D such as beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks.

Types of Vitamin D and the Necessary Co-Factor

Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol is in fish, fish oils, beef liver, cheese and egg yolks.

Vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol is found in some mushrooms.

Some foods, like milk and ready to eat breakfast cereals and some juices have vitamin D added. This is not as good as the naturally occurring vitamin D.

One of the most important aspect of these foods is the vitamin D and glutathione connection. Yes, vitamin D helps boost glutathione. While usually we get it from the sun, these are also important ways to increase our vitamin D and at the same time, our glutathione.

When improving D3, it is also necessary to increase the K2. They work together. We need between 100 to 300mcg per day of K2 and as a ratio, we need 45mcg of Vitamin K2 for every 1000 IU of Vitamin D3.

Some research found that taking the K2 8-12 hours after the D3 is more effective.

The expense of fish can make it a seasonal dietary choice. Eat it as a treat when the sun does not shine. Other dietary considerations like cod liver oil can also be used to supplement your dietary intake.

Making the Best of Foods High In Vitamin D

A contrarian view of the traditional supplement industry recommendations would be to only take for three days on and two off. Or to make it easier, take them Monday and Tuesday, off Wednesday and Thursday and on again Friday. Any combination so that there are a few days off in between.

The rational for this is three fold.

1) This is the basic avoid food allergy regimen.

2) If you cannot afford it, you will not do it. Spacing will make it more affordable.

3) Your body will not take or store more than it needs.

Increase the days when dealing with illness, stress, needing extra mental agility or will face physically stressful situations.

So foods rich in vitamin D are also rich for our health in more ways than we could imagine.

In addition to foods high in vitamin D, there are other ways to boost your intercellular glutathione.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).

And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
