Supplement Spotlight: Vital Proteins Goes Vegan with Release of Spirulina and Beauty Boost Capsules



CHICAGOJuly 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Proving plant-based products have a place among its ever-expanding collagen collection, Vital Proteins announces the launch of not one, but two 100% vegan supplements: the Spirulina capsules and the Organic Beauty Boost capsules. A seamless fit amid the brand's sustainably-sourced collection, each capsule contains only all-natural, high quality ingredients within a nutritionally-rich profile.

"We always have our ear to the ground, listening to cues from our customers in an effort to ensure we're consistently evolving our offerings for them," explains Kurt Seidensticker, Founder and CEO of Vital Proteins. "Although we're best known for clean-label collagen, we recognize that our bodies need a variety of natural nutrients to keep us looking and feeling our best – and the Spirulina and Beauty Boost capsules ended up being our response."


About Vital Proteins' Spirulina
Sourced from California grown spirulina, this plant-based capsule contains one simple ingredient that is both Non-GMO Project Verified and 100% vegan and vegetarian. Vital Proteins' Spirulina is an incredible antioxidant-packed, detoxifying superfood sourced from nutrient rich blue-green algae. Each serving contains all 8 of the essential amino acids, vitamin A, vitamin K, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), phycocyanin, and chlorophyll to help maximize overall health and wellness. Components in Spirulina, such as chlorophyll and gamma linolenic acid, help keep hair shiny, skin clearer, and eyes brighter, while powerful antioxidants like phycocyanin help to support the digestive tract and promote the elimination of toxins within the body. Working this superfood into a daily regimen can also help support good gut health, collagen and elastin building, and muscle strength and endurance, making it an all-encompassing option for living vitally.


About Vital Proteins' Organic Beauty Boost
Non-GMO Project Verified, 100% vegan & vegetarian, and made with only organic fruits and vegetables, Vital Proteins' Beauty Boost is an easy-to-use source of nature's purest nutrients. Each serving offers 500% of the daily value of biotin and 300% of the daily value of vitamin C, both of which directly and effectively impact collagen production. Other elite ingredients include holy basil, an excellent source for fighting bacteria and promoting clear, glowing skin and bamboo, a well-known vegetable that offers immunity-boosting properties as well as digestion support. The Beauty Boost offers a host of health benefits and helps support youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails, providing a glowing appearance on the outside by starting from the inside.

Vital Proteins' all-natural collection of clean label products work from the inside out to rejuvenate, revitalize, and restore overall wellness and natural beauty. Allow Vital Proteins to be one essential building block towards looking and feeling your best.

Supplement Spotlight: Organic Burst Organic Spirulina Granules

Our spirulina granules are a delicious alternative way to take your greens – a nutrient dense, crunchy snack that you can sprinkle over salads, smoothies or dips.

Spirulina is a blue-green microscopic plant that has existed on our planet for 3.6 billion years and served as a source of nourishment to ancient civilizations such as the Aztec. Organic Burst Spirulina has a full spectrum of nutrients that nourish both the body and the mind.

Organic Burst Spirulina is grown in an environment that guarantees the highest level of purity, making it more easily digestible and pleasant tasting than other forms. It is manufactured in the UK to EU Good Manufacturing Practice standards and tested extensively for purity.



Supports the immune system. Vitamin B6 and iron in our spirulina granules support the immune system.

Healthy brain and cognitive function. Organic Burst Spirulina granules are rich in Vitamin B6 and contains iron that are known to support healthy cognitive function, in other words your brain power!

Weight management. Taken one hour before meals, Organic Burst Spirulina granules can naturally promote the feeling of fullness and prevent over-eating.

Healthy heart. Thiamine in Organic Burst Spirulina contributes to the normal function of the heart.

Rich, complete and digestible protein source. Spirulina granules are very rich in protein (60-70%), containing 18 amino acids including all essential amino acids. According to studies, spirulina has a very high protein efficiency ratio (PER). Protein in spirulina is four times more absorbable than protein in beef.


Free from heavy metals and algae toxins. Organic Burst Spirulina is grown organically in bright sunshine and mineral-rich underground spring water, uncontaminated by heavy metals, toxins, chemicals and pesticides.

Grown without Chilean (Sodium) Nitrate. Organic Burst Spirulina is cultivated using only organic herbal fertilisers. The majority of spirulina on the market today is grown using Chilean Nitrate, which is a mined fertiliser, banned by the organic standards due to environmental contamination. It has also been linked with adverse health effects.

Rigorous testing. Although the UK and many other countries have no legal requirement to test spirulina for contamination, we test each and every batch for purity at an independent lab, just to make 100% sure it’s up to scratch!

Better taste. Because we strive for perfection, Organic Burst Spirulina is known for its purity, digestibility, and pleasant fresh taste.

Certified Organic by the Soil Association. No harmful chemicals, pesticides or processing aids were used at any stage of farming or production.

Made in the UK on a medicinal facility of pharmaceutical grade to EU GMP standards ensuring the highest manufacturing quality and no exposure to allergens




About the Company
Our founders Katya and Dimi are an awesome young couple who started the Organic Burst journey in London in July 2011 after discovering the life-transforming benefits of pure, organic superfoods for themselves. They shocked their relatives by giving up their careers in finance and Katya’s postgraduate course at Cambridge University to pour their efforts into Organic Burst. Their aim was, and still is, to deliver pure, organic and ethically-sound products that help people in their day-to-day lives. They really are perfectionists and will only consider working with the highest quality ingredients, packaging, and people, constantly improving the OB offering.
