The same UV rays emitted from the sun are used in tanning beds. Tanning beds emit UV rays that produce the same type of vitamin D that the sun gives your body. If you are unable to get outside for some sunlight, vitamin D can be gained by visiting a tanning bed regularly at a tanning salon.
Vitamin D is also found in food. It can be consumed but to get the needed daily dose of vitamin D, it is not enough to eat the fat-soluble vitamin. The body absorbs much more by being exposed to sunlight or UV rays.
