Vitamin-D, or the sunshine vitamin, is known to be produced by our body with a mild exposure in the sun, or by consuming certain food or supplements. It is imperative to maintain adequate levels of the vitamin-D in your body, mainly because it helps your body to have a normal growth and better bones and teeth, as well as to facilitate a normal immune system function. But, the question is if vitamin-D foods or supplements help in losing weight?

As per the study, published in British Journal of Nutrition, people who are consuming a daily calcium and vitamin-D supplement were able to lose more weight much faster and in effective way than the ones who are not taking them. The experts concluded that an extra calcium and vitamin-D have an appetite-suppressing effect. Meaning, no more hunger hangs. Therefore, consider adding vitamin-D supplements to your diet, especially if you're trying to lose weight. It is recommended to maintain a healthy food diet that is rich in vitamin-D. Here are some foods items that contain vitamin D:

  • Shrimp: Shrimp is the most popular type of shellfish, which is not only rich in vitamin-D, but are also very low in fat.
  • Mushroom: Mushroom is exposed to the sun while growing, meaning rich in vitamin-D value. However, pick white mushrooms, as they are an excellent source of vitamin-D than other mushrooms.
