Also known as: Filberts or Cob nuts
Hazelnuts are very high in energy and loaded with many health-benefitting nutrients that are essential for optimum health.
Otherwise known as Filberts, Hazelnuts are especially High in the antioxidant minerals Copper and Manganese. These compounds both act as a co-factor for the vital enzyme Superoxide Dismutase, a powerful enzyme which boost’s the body’s antioxidant defence by reducing cellular damage.
They are also exceptionally rich in Folate, an essential B-complex vitamin whose role in a healthy pregnancy is most widely known. It is necessary for the production of new DNA which is needed for the production of new cells – the growing life within the womb engages in constant cell division and the mother must expand her blood supply with the production of new red blood cells – these activities demand a generous supply of Folate.
Vitamins B1 and B6 provide immune support and promote proper brain function – regulating the central nervous system, preventing mental fatigue and helping to make the feel good hormones serotonin and norepinephrine.
Also High in Phosphorus and Magnesium which are crucial to a healthy bone structure, metabolism and central nervous system – a handful of Hazelnuts can go a long way in preventing deficiency in these essential minerals.
Hazelnuts are a source of the little known Vitamin B5 – Pantothenic Acid. Taking its name from the Greek root pantos meaning “everywhere” as it can be found throughout all living cells. The most studied role of Pantothenic Acid in health support is its incorporation into a molecule called coenzyme A (CoA). This occupies a central place in energy metabolism, acting to allow carbohydrates, fats and proteins to be burned as energy sources.

Indigo Herbs Organic Hazelnuts are grown in orchards and harvested in Turkey. All the Corylus avellana trees are cultivated on certified organic land and all aspects of plant health are organic also. Around October each year the nuts are fully mature and are picked from the tree. The nuts are then fed through a machine that extracts the fibrous husk from the smooth hard nut shell. Then the shell is mechanically cracked and the inner nut extracted. After a small air drying period the whole hazelnuts are ready to be shipped. This whole process complies with GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs.
