Magnesium is not only great for essential bodily functions like protein synthesis and muscle regeneration. It also promotes better sleep!

If you’re due for a better night of sleep, here are four magnesium-rich foods to incorporate into your daily diet.

Bananas

This fruit gets a lot of publicity as a great source of potassium, but it also is high in magnesium. Both promote relaxation, so snack on some before bed. 

Dark chocolate

Antioxidants and great sleep? What more could you ask for. If you’re looking for a healthy dessert that will also help you doze off, just one ounce of dark chocolate has 64 milligrams of magnesium. 

Nuts and seeds

Most of your favorite nuts are also high in magnesium. Almonds contain 80 milligrams of magnesium per serving and pumpkin seeds have 168!

Chickpeas

Half a cup of chickpeas has 115 milligrams of magnesium, making them a great source of sleep-promoting snacks.
