Many herbs and spices are rich in magnesium. For instance: dried coriander leaf, chives, spearmint, dill, sage, basil, fennel, savory, parsley, cumin, tarragon, oregano, saffron, cloves, caraway, curry, thyme and black pepper.

Fresh vegetables are a good source of magnesium. Magnesium is lost when foods are processed. Sadly, magnesium usually isn’t replaced as “enrichment” at the processing plant.
