2. Foods Rich in Magnesium
Like vitamin D, magnesium has also been found to reduce pain in those with fibromyalgia. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of foods that are rich in this mineral. Dark, leafy greens like kale, spinach, and Swiss chard are among the best sources.
Magnesium can also be found in beans, lentils, nuts (like almonds), seeds (such as pumpkin seeds), avocados, bananas, dark chocolate, and fatty fish (i.e. salmon, mackerel, and herring). To help ease the symptoms of fibromyalgia, Dr. Axe recommends eating “a minimum of three servings a day of these foods.”
