- A serving of sun-dried tomatoes delivers further heart benefits by providing 6 percent of the recommended daily intake of calcium and 25 percent of magnesium. Calcium is a well-known component of bones, but it also stimulates the contraction of heart muscles. Magnesium has the opposite role, helping to ensure normal heart rhythm by causing the heart muscles to relax. Calcium and magnesium also regulate blood pressure by coordinating the contraction and relaxation of blood vessel walls.
