Endocrinologist Tatyana Bocharova emphasized that, in general, it is extremely important for all people to sunbathe from May to September this year.
There are a certain number of foods that can help partially compensate for the lack of vitamin D in the body.
According to her, fatty fish (salmon, tuna, cod, and sardines), as well as egg yolk, should be included in the diet.
“In addition, milk, yogurt, and juices enriched with vitamin D are now being produced – manufacturers irradiate them with ultraviolet light. However, it is impossible to cover the body’s need for vitamins through food alone. If you set such a goal, you’ll have to eat about one kilogram of cod every day,” Bocharova said.
The endocrinologist noted that in general, it is extremely important for all people to sunbathe from May to September this year.
“There are Russian recommendations on how much vitamin D is needed per day: for adults, it is 600-800 IU (international units); for those over 50, 800-1000 IU – more resources are needed for bone strength,” Bocharova summarized.
