The latest research shows that
Mushrooms, like our skin are capable of transforming UV light from the sun into the vitamin.
Study Design: The researchers gave 30 subjects a daily capsule for 3 months containing 2,000 units of Vitamin D or a sun-exposed mushroom powder with high-levels of the nutrient. The results indicate that there were no significant differences in the participants' vitamin D levels
The researchers conclude that consumers are advised to take the mushrooms - any variety will work - out of their wrapping and place them outdoors between the hours of 10am and 3pm for up to 60 minutes during the late spring and summer months.
Important to note: Vitamin D production is dependent on the season and latitude; research shows that in northern Europe, Vitamin D production can only take place between the months of March to October.
