      Add these magnesium rich foods to your diet

      Did you know that magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in our bodies? You’ll be astonished to know that this is needed for more than 300 different physiological processes that range from producing protein to healthy muscle and nerve function. It also helps in fighting depression. Women need 310 mg and men 400 mg a day.


      These are a nutrition powerhouse filled with healthy fats and over 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. They also contain 4% of the daily value of magnesium per serving.

      Dark Chocolate

      The darker the chocolate, the higher the level of cacao and the higher the amount of magnesium that you will find. Cocoa powder has 27 mg of magnesium per tablespoon.


      Bananas are known for their potassium content, but they contain a fair amount of magnesium as well. Just one medium banana can give 8% of your DV of magnesium too.


      Almonds, cashews, and peanuts not only make healthy snack, they are also loaded with magnesium. For instance, just one ounce of almonds has 80 mg which makes up about 20% of your recommended daily intake. Cashews contain 74 mg per ounce while 2 tablespoons of peanut butter contain 49 mg.

      Cultured yogurt

      Cultured yogurt is highly nutritious and contains 30 mg of magnesium per cup besides being a rich source of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, plenty of vitamins and minerals, and gut-healthy probiotics.

      Soya foods

      Most soy food ranging from edamame, soy flour, soy nuts to soy milk are rich in magnesium. Soy milk is the best as it can provide 15% of your DV in a single glass. 

      Baked potato

       A simple baked potato will always be healthier than french fries, and provide 11% of your DV of magnesium. Add something green like broccoli or argula to up the nutrition.
