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.
