An Unknown Way to Get Vitamin D-3

An Unknown Way to Get Vitamin D-3

You might find it surprising to learn that supplements and sunshine are not the only ways to get vitamin D-3.

Sure, getting vitamin D-3 via sun exposure is a great way to boost levels of this nutrient.

And taking a supplement is definitely one of the best ways to “top off” your vitamin D levels - especially if you don’t get access to sunshine most of the year.

But it turns out there’s another way to get vitamin D in your body.

Before we show you what that is… we’d be remiss to tell you that our super-strength vitamin D-3 supplement is 15% off through the end of the week.

Expiring on the 20th of June, your coupon code IMMUNITY1 is your ticket to our proven supplement for helping people restore their vitamin D levels.

Now, the purpose of this article isn’t to sell you a supplement (but you can always buy it from here if you want) but to show you how you can get vitamin D-3 from an unexpected place.

Your diet.

And once you read this article you’ll see why it’s so helpful to have a supplement in your medicine cabinet to help you keep levels high.

Dietary Sources of Vitamin D-3

The sun is the ultimate place to get vitamin D-3. Dr. Wiggy has written about that more than enough. 

But, it’s not the only place.

You can actually get vitamin D-3 from many animal products…

And you can even get vitamin D-2, which converts into D-3, from plant-based products.

Here’s a list of animal and plant-based products that would supply you with nominal amounts of vitamin D-3.

This list comes to you courtesy of Dr. Axe. 

  1. Wild-Caught Salmon — 3 ounces: 447 IU (over 100 percent DV)
  2. Cod Liver Oil — 1 tablespoon: 1,360 IU (over 100 percent DV)
  3. Mackerel — 3 ounces: 306 IU (76 percent DV)
  4. Tuna Fish — 3 ounces: 154 IU (39 percent DV)
  5. Fortified Milk — 1 cup: 124 IU (31 percent DV)
  6. Fortified Almond Milk — 1 cup: 120 IU (24 DV)
  7. Fortified Coconut Milk — 1 cup: 120 IU (24 percent DV)
  8. Morel Mushrooms — 1 cup: 3.4 micrograms (17 percent DV)
  9. Sardines — 2 sardines: 47 IU (12 percent DV)
  10. Fortified Orange Juice: 1 cup: 47 IU or more (12 percent DV)
  11. Beef Liver — 3 ounces: 42 IU (11 percent DV)
  12. Eggs — 1 egg: 41 IU (10 percent DV)
  13. Fortified Cereal — 1 cup: 40 IU (10 percent DV)
  14. Caviar — 1 tablespoon: 37 IU (9 percent DV)
  15. Shiitake Mushrooms — 1 cup: 1 IU (5 percent DV)
  16. Oyster Mushrooms — 1 cup: 0.6 IU (3 percent DV)

Upon reviewing this list you likely realized something. Only a few of these foods offer ample amounts of vitamin D-3.

For the animal-based products only 2 of them offer 100% or more of your daily value.

And plant-based products, which offer an inferior form of vitamin D in D-2, barely get you 25%. And that’s with the fortified versions! The reason that’s bad is because fortified versions of products are chemically manufactured so they don’t even offer you the bio-identical form of the nutrients you need.

When it comes to plant-based products that provide you with D-2 the most you’re going to get is 17% from Morel mushrooms.

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but morel mushrooms aren’t common, nor are they cheap.

So it’s clear they’re not a good option for getting vitamin D from.

Since it’s so difficult to get vitamin D from your diet, Dr. Wiggy tells his patients to get out in the sun or to take supplements like the HAIOTB Vitamin D-3 7500 IUs.

Only through supplementation or adequate sun exposure can you maintain healthy levels of vitamin D-3.

Our version of vitamin D-3 offers more than the standard vitamin D-3 supplement. At 7500 IUs, it’s nearly 2,500 IUs more than the high-strength version offered by other brands.

Dr. Wiggy has said that this is the level he likes to use in a clinical setting to reverse deficiencies. 

At $18 a bottle for a 3-month supply, it’s a steal.
