Eat Your Minerals: Foods Rich in Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium

Your muscles, kidneys and heart require magnesium to function optimally.

Good dietary sources of magnesium include legumes, whole grains, wheat bran, soybean flour, whole-wheat flour, oat bran, spinach, beet greens, green leafy vegetables and Swiss chard.

Your body uses calcium to form and maintain strong bones and teeth.

Good sources of calcium include cheeses, kale, cabbage, turnip greens, bok choy, broccoli, dark leafy greens, kelp, dried figs, sardines, canned salmon, oysters, hazelnuts, yogurt, milk and cottage cheese.

Potassium ensures that your digestive and muscular systems perform their assigned functions effectively.

Foods such as potatoes, tomatoes, avocados, orange juice, bananas, cantaloupes, cod, flounder, salmon, chicken and other meats contain decent amounts of potassium.

Being Healthy is Delicious!
