Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in very few foods. It is often added to some foods – for example, ‘fortified’ cereals and milk – and available as a dietary supplement--though it’s always best to get nutrients from natural sources, when possible.
Vitamin D is also produced when ultraviolet rays from sunlight are absorbed through the skin, which triggers a Vitamin D synthesis reaction.
