A complete protein containing ALL the eight essential amino acids, Spirulina gives a whole new meaning to superfoods! In fact, it is one of the richest plant-based sources of protein ever. 


Spirulina is a bluish-green algae that grows naturally in both saltwater and freshwater. It has been consumed by humans for centuries as it is believed to be one of the most nutritionally dense foods in the world. 


Super rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and proteins, spirulina absorbs vital nutrients from its surroundings and is fast becoming one of the world's most popular supplements. 


How your Spirulina is grown is important! 


Spirulina has soft cell walls that make it act as a dry sponge in water, absorbing everything from its surrounding environment - both good and bad. 


This is the main reason why it is extremely important that you know where your spirulina is coming from. 

After all, you don't want to ingest anything that is loaded with toxic heavy metals!


Why Plant Burst?


Plant Burst Organic Spirulina Powder is grown in controlled, clear mineral water environment, and not in the sea and lakes which can be heavily contaminated with toxic metals. 


We test our Spirulina and ensure it is free from heavy metals, microcystins, BMAA and other toxins to ensure you have the best organic Spirulina powder. 


A good indicator of high quality Spirulina is a dark matte green colour, and our Plant Burst spirulina is of the exact same hue giving you all the organic Spirulina powder benefits. 


Also, good Spirulina should never smell fishy, but more like dark green earthy vegetables, just like our Plant Burst Spirulina.
