If you’re striving to increase you’re intake of vitamin D look no further! Here are our top 5 ways to increase your daily intake of this essential vitamin and not just from your diet:
1 - OILY FISH
Omega rich fish, in particular salmon is a fantastic source of vitamin D, with more than 700IU+ per 100g.
2 - EXERCISE
By taking part in intense exercise frequently throughout the week studies have shown individuals to have higher levels of vitamin D in the body.
3 - GET OUT
Try and spend some time each week outdoors when the sun is shining. Depending on daylight hours you should be able to catch short periods potentially in the morning, evening and at weekends.
4 - SUPPLEMENT
Adding in a cod liver oil or vitamin D supplement each day will directly and controllably allow you to increase your intake. This is strongly recommended if you are vegan.
5 - KICK CAFFEINE
Caffeine has been shown to effect vitamin D absorption. If you’re a big coffee drinker try a decaffeinated version, if you like using pre-workout products try a stimulant free version or a alternative BCAA and arginine product.
