Magnesium Deficiency Causes Heart Attacks! Eat These Foods to Prevent It

1. Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate has 64 mg of magnesium in just one ounce, netting 16% of the RDI with your after-dinner treat alone.

It also contains powerful antioxidants called flavanols, which are known to prevent bad LDL cholesterol from sticking to the artery walls. That gives dark chocolate a double dose of heart protection ability.

This tasty treat additionally features a good amount of iron, manganese, and copper, plus prebiotic fiber to feed your healthy gut bacteria.

You can indulge without worry as long as you look for a chocolate that contains at least 70% cocoa solids. Otherwise you need to be careful about eating too much sugar and not enough of the good stuff.
