Daily dose of vitamin D for adults should be in the range of 100 to 2000 I.U. based on several factors. It can be also found in some food in minimum quantity. According to the latest information and research, we can only take up to 10% of vitamin D from our diet. Vitamin D is contained in fatty fish meat such as salmon, tuna, sardines, mackerel and oil from their liver. For its optimum amount, you would have to eat about 4 kg of fish per day.
