Why You Need Vitamin D and Calcium together

In order to receive the health benefits from Calcium, you need to combine it with vitamin D.

Certain foods contain both calcium and vitamin D.  Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, and tuna have both calcium and vitamin D.

Foods high in calcium include broccoli, kale, bok choy and other dark leafy greens.  The greener the vegetable, the more calcium it has.  Milk and non-dairy milk are also a great source of calcium.

Vitamin D is rare to find naturally in foods other than egg yolks and shiitake mushrooms.

The most common way to receive vitamin D is by getting sun exposure.  Your body can make vitamin D when it is exposed to the sun.  Be careful when basking in the sun because of the risk of getting sun burn.
