Do you know how important magnesium is during perimenopause & menopause?
It helps with sleep, regulates hormones, reduces night sweats & mood swings. It’s also great for reducing stress & anxiety. Oh, and did I mention it’s great for bone health?
Lots of us are low in magnesium & don’t realize it.
There are lots of easy ways to incorporate more magnesium into your diet right now.
Here are some great magnesium-rich foods to consider:
Dark Chocolate: Dark chocolate is not only delicious but also a great source of magnesium.
Avocado: Avocado is an excellent source of healthy fats, fiber, and magnesium.
Almonds: Almonds are a great snack option and a good magnesium source.
Spinach: Spinach is a leafy green vegetable high in various vitamins and minerals, including magnesium. You could try Swiss chard, too.
Black Beans: Black beans are a versatile and delicious legume high in fiber, protein, and magnesium. (Lentils & chickpeas are great, too!)
Bananas: Bananas are a convenient and portable snack that is high in magnesium.
Quinoa: Quinoa is a healthy and versatile grain that is a good protein, fiber, and magnesium source.
You can also supplement for magnesium, but it can get tricky because you have to find a good one & understand the dose. That’s why I always encourage you to start with your diet & go from there.
You’d be surprised how small changes to your diet can do the trick.
Give it a try!
