Forget getting out into the sun to replenish your vitamin D reserves- think mushrooms!.
Why mushrooms? Well, this is what is going to be your best source of Vitamin D soon.
In order to give mushrooms a vitamin D boost, researchers exposed them to quick pulses of ultraviolet light. And voila! In less than a second, a mushroom with effectively no vitamin D had plenty of it!
Quick pulses of ultraviolet light flash over the mushroom's surface set off a chemical process that converts a compound similar to cholesterol inside the mushrooms into vitamin D.
One serving of mushrooms has a day's worth of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin D, which is 600 IUs (or 15 micrograms) per day.
Researchers suggest that smaller amounts of mushrooms may be all you need if you have other sources of vitamin D in your diet.
The human body needs vitamin D to maintain bone health and helps regulate the immune system.
