As the maximum population is meant to stay at home during the outbreak of coronavirus and ongoing pandemic, many of us are wondering how to keep our immunity strong. This year-long viral infection is attacking the weakest immunity system and further deteriorating it. Vitamin D is one of the most essential vitamins that help in boosting our immunity system and makes our bodies capable of battling infections. To sustain high energy levels and ensure immunity, it is crucial to include vitamin D rich foods in your diet.
To have a strong immunity and healthy body, here are some foods that will ensure proper dietary intake of Vitamin D:
1. Egg yolk
While egg proteins are known for their high nutritional value, many people make a mistake of tossing away egg yolk. Egg whites are crucial in muscle building and boosting overall immunity of the body. Having a significant amount of egg yolk in your daily diet will give you a proper supply of vitamin D. Eggs are rich sources of vitamin A, D, E, K, omega three fatty acids, vitamin B12 and folate components as well.
A rich source of probiotics, yogurt is also rich in vitamin D and helps in strengthening muscles and boosting immunity. Given the current conditions, it is important to ensure that you intake the recommended dietary allowance of yogurt to meet your vitamin D needs. This will also help you in boosting your body’s capacity for battling infections.
Considered to be one of the best sources of fiber, oatmeal is also a rich source of vitamin D. With its increasing popularity, oatmeal is becoming a staple in almost every Indian household. You can have oatmeal in breakfast, brunch, evening snacks or even as a balanced meal. To enhance its vitamin D level, make a whole grain oats porridge with milk. Sufficient intake of oatmeal can help prevent diabetes as well.
Known for its high-nutritional value, milk is a rich vegetarian source of vitamin D. Drinking a warm glass of milk in the morning and one glass before going to bed can give you sufficient amount of vitamin D. Many nutritionists suggest that adding a pinch of turmeric in milk will improve your immunity while enhancing its taste.
One of the most important foods to add in your healthy and balanced diet as they can fulfil your vitamin D requirements. When exposed to sunlight, mushrooms give a higher level of vitamin D. Mushrooms can be added to pasta, salads, eggs etc.
