Anyone who has been to a sushi restaurant is familiar with the endless menu of rolls , all of which are wrapped in a delicious— and healthful— vegetable that's harvested under the sea.

A study published in a 1999 issue of Plant Foods for Human Nutrition by investigators at Notre Dame Seishin University in Japan compared magnesium levels in animals fed hijiki or wakame and found both diets had positive effects on bone health, although magnesium absorption was higher in the wakame group.
