Salmon

Salmon is full of goodness for skin and hair. A single serving carries more than the daily requirement of vitamin D. The levels are higher in wild salmon when compared to farmed salmon. So, if you like to eat fish, this is a fabulous way to increase vitamin D. Also, salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, phosphorus and vitamin B6.

If fish will not make the cut to be on your plate, try including cod liver oil capsules in your diet. Apart from enhancing your immunity, these capsules are also a good source of vitamin D. The oil is rich in omega-3 which would help in preserving brain health and preventing depression.

Another easily available food for getting vitamin D levels up is egg yolk. A study found that the Vitamin D in egg yolks might be particularly good for diabetics. The level of vitamin isn't as high as in salmons but it's good for people who don't consume sea-food. Also, the level would depend on whether the hens were roaming in sunlight or not. The more sunlight hen absorbs, the higher level of vitamin D in the yolk.
