Studies by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration show the body needs certain amounts of vitamins and minerals on a daily basis. One of the recommended daily vitamins is vitamin D. Vitamin D is important for strong healthy bones and muscles.
The daily recommended amount of vitamin D is 400 international units, more if you are over the age of 70. It is recommended that adults get at least 800 international units of vitamin D through food and other sources. There is no better way to get vitamin D than naturally through UV rays from the sun or from tanning beds.
