What Magnesium-Rich Foods Should be in my Diet?

What Magnesium-Rich Foods Should be in my Diet?

It’s been estimated that more than 50% of adult Americans don’t consume sufficient foods high in magnesium to get the required daily amount (300mg for women, 400mg for men) of this critically important mineral. I urge you to consider adding these magnesium-rich foods to your daily menu:

Almonds are nutrient-dense and full of healthy fats and protein. Just one ounce of almonds contains 80mg of magnesium!

Spinach is packed with magnesium, providing 157mg in a single cup! Additionally, this leafy green has many other vitamins and minerals that help optimize magnesium absorption.

Pumpkin seeds contain a whopping 184mg of magnesium in just ¼ cup!

Avocados contain 58mg of magnesium in a single fruit, plus more potassium than bananas!

Cultured yogurt contains 30mg of magnesium per cup and is a superb source of protein. Omega-­3 fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and probiotics, which are all also found in yogurt, make this one nutrient-rich, gut-­healthy snack.
