Vitamin D(elicious)

Food

Vitamin D is, together with calcium, one of the building blocks for strong bones, supple muscles and a good natural resistance. But not everyone gets their fill with Vitamin D. How do you reach a sufficient level each day?


The glowing and sparkling sun. Often more of a myth than reality in our region. With Daylight Saving Time you have a better chance at seeing those late evening sun rays, necessary for the production of Vitamin D and essential for a healthy body. 

Vitamin D is, together with calcium, one of the building blocks for strong bones, supple muscles and a good natural resistance. When Daylight Saving Time kicks in, your body can usually absorb the needed amount of Vitamin D from the sun through the skin. 

But not everyone gets their fill with Vitamin D, even though the sun is shining. You notice a lack of Vitamin D when you have the following symptoms:

  • You feel tired and lethargic 
  • You suffer from muscle fatigue and muscle cramps 
  • You regularly have a cold or flu 
  • You often experience pain in your bones 

 Our clear-cut advice is to go outside as soon as you see the sun is shining. It’s good for your body, but also fun and relaxing.

Vitamine Delicious

When the sun doesn’t cut it, there are some delicacies packed with Vitamin D that can be of help. Place these ingredients on the menu:

  • Oily fish: salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines, herring
  • Milk: Vitamin D makes it easier for calcium to be stored in your bones
  • Eggs (and mainly the egg yolk)
  • Foods enriched with Vitamin D, such as cow and soy milk, yogurt and breakfast cereals

Lastly, nutritional supplements are an option. Pay your general practitioner a visit for a blood test. This way you know whether you have a Vitamin D deficiency. You also receive proper advice on quantities.
