Organic Chia Seeds from Indigo Herbs are high in protein, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids and are rich in fibre. This daily superfood staple can be utilised in many culinary dishes, used as a vegan egg replacement and to thicken up smoothies.
Chia Seeds are a small but mighty superfood that have been used by the native tribes of South America for millennia. Packing a powerful nutritional punch, they support digestive health, bone health, brain health and boost energy levels. The high antioxidant content of these seeds protects their sensitive omega fats, and almost all of the carbohydrate content is in the form of fibre.

Chia seeds are packed with essential vitamins and minerals, this ancient Inca superfood is a complete protein (containing all 9 essential amino acids) – proteins are the main building blocks of the body and are used to make muscles, tendons, organs and skin.
Organic Chia Seeds contain more iron than spinach and more calcium than milk, iron is essential for the blood, calcium – in conjunction with magnesium and phosphorus which are also contained in high amounts – is responsible for promoting healthy bones and teeth, muscle contraction and relaxation and cell communication.
Rich in vitamins
B1, B3 and biotin (vitamin B7) – these are all very important vitamins for the brain and work in tandem to protect the nervous system - vitamin B3 in particular is a powerful anti-oxidant for the brain.
There are also high amounts of
zinc, copper and manganese– these essential minerals work best together and promote healthy immune function, help to fight free radicals and are vital for healthy nails and shiny hair!
Lastly but by no means least,
selenium and chromium make up the impressive nutrient profile of chia seeds. Selenium supports the immune system and is an essential component of the thyroid, chromium is essential for glucose metabolism and normalises glucose levels in the blood.
Enjoy these little
nutritional powerhouses in smoothies, sprinkled on top of yoghurt or salads or add to stews and soups to thicken!

Indigo Herbs Organic Chia Seeds are bought at fair trade prices, grown to standardized practices and represent 500 years of selective cultivation from wild Chia plants. From November to January the Chia plants are harvested and the seed separated from the raw plant material. All seed is then passed through a vibration cleaning machine to separate any grit and other pollutants form the pure seed. If the seed is still moist they very gently dried before being tested for heavy metals and pesticides. This whole process guarantees that our Chia is some of the purest on the market.
As with any high dietary fibre food, exercise caution when treating severe constipation.
