Containing over 30% protein, our Broccoli Powder is a rich source of this important macronutrient. Proteins are the building blocks of life used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters, muscles, tendons and skin – without protein our bodies would biochemically dismantle!
With high amounts of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron, this powder strongly promotes the absorption of iron by the body, with vitamin A being essential for normal iron metabolism and vitamin C enhancing the body’s ability to absorb iron. Iron is vital for the blood with the formation of haemoglobin being the chief function of this important mineral. Haemoglobin binds with the oxygen molecules we breathe and releases them into our tissues - the brain receives around 20% of oxygenated blood which stimulates cognitive activity and can create new neural pathways.
Vitamin A is a fat soluble antioxidant compound whilst vitamin C is a water soluble antioxidant – these two vitamins together create a potent antioxidant mix. Stress, pollution and inflammation are just some causes of the formation of free radicals - these are rogue atoms or atomic groups which have lost at least one electron and are forced to steal electrons from neighbouring molecules in the hope of stabilising themselves – this can cause havoc in the body! Vitamins A and C both have the ability to safely interact with and neutralise free radicals.
Vitamins A and C are also very important for a healthy immune system with vitamin A assisting the skin and mucous membranes in repelling viruses and bacteria whilst white blood cells (cells that fight off foreign invaders in your bloodstream) contain 20 times the amount of vitamin C than any other cell!

The Broccoli plants that make up Indigo Herbs Broccoli Powder were grown in Germany where it was also manufactured into a powder. After the Broccoli has reached full maturity the cluster of florets are harvested, thoroughly cleaned and chopped into small pieces ready to be dehydrated. Special dehydrators make sure that all moisture is sucked out of the Broccoli without depleting the nutritional content. After drying is complete the pieces of Broccoli is then milled into a fine powder and finally tested for pollutants and heavy metals. This process follows GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs,
