One typical issue of winter, particularly in high-latitude regions, is shorter day time and darker nights. Although one can store up enough vitamin D in summer by staying out long enough to get sufficient sun exposure, it is still possible that the “stock” may be used up before the arrival of next summer.
One can obtain Vitamin D supply through dietary means, like eating fatty fish, cow’s lever or some sort of mushrooms. But the amount of vitamin D in these ingredients might vary due to conservation or cooking methods.
