Magnesium is important for building and maintaining healthy bones and for keeping our blood circulating. It is also helpful for relaxing our nerves and our muscles. Be sure that you are getting enough magnesium in your diet by eating plenty of organic leafy green vegetables like Swiss chard, kale, collard greens, and spinach.

Figs are amazing sources of dietary fiber, making figs a great food for weight management (fiber makes you feel full and prevents you from overeating). Figs are also a great source of heart-healthy potassium and manganese. They contain lutein and zeaxanthin to help protect your eyes and improve your vision.
