Which foods are highest in Magnesium?

We often get asked what foods have the highest amounts of absorbable Magnesium in them, that are easy to incorporate with meals every day.  Unlike oral Magnesium supplements, you don’t have to worry about getting too much Magnesium from food.  There are also none of the negative side effects.

Here are our top three recommendations —

Pumpkin Seeds, aka Pepitas
These tiny powerhouses provide a whopping 165 mg in 1/4 cup. They are delicious toasted, and can be added to salads, soups or just eaten plain. Be sure to get organic seeds with no added oils.

This leafy green adds 156 mg in just one cup! It’s easy to add a cup or two to meals, as it’s so mild in flavor.

Dark Chocolate
You no longer have to feel guilty about this one! It packs 64 mg of Magnesium per ounce. Choose a product that has at least 70% cocoa solids, which will be listed on the label. Enjoy!
