Today, I will show you how to make your own vitamin D supplements using mushrooms. 

Mushrooms have insignificant amounts of vitamin D unless they are exposed to ultraviolet B light. 

There is some interesting research on how exposing mushrooms to ultraviolet B light can boost their vitamin D levels. It may be possible to boost the vitamin B in mushrooms from 5,000 IU to 46,000 IU or more.

It’s good to consume your mushrooms with some type of fat, like butter, to help increase vitamin D absorption. 

Other nutrients in mushrooms:
• B vitamins
• Selenium 
• Zinc 
• Copper 
• Vitamin C 
• Potassium 

Mushrooms I recommend:
• Shitake 
• Maitake 
• Oyster 
• Button

How to make your own vitamin D supplements:
1. Obtain organic mushrooms 

2. Use the sun in the summer or use a UV light year-round. Take the stems off of the mushrooms and place them on a tray with the gills facing upward (slice button mushrooms lengthwise). Put them in the sun or under UV light from 10 am-6 pm. After 6 pm, take them inside and cover the tray.

3. The next day, re-expose the mushrooms to the sun or UV light (keep them in a low-moisture environment). If the mushrooms are still not dried out, put them in a food dehydrator. 

4. Store the mushrooms in a sealed glass jar with a small amount of dry rice (to absorb any moisture) and seal the lid. They will last up to one year.
