Totum Sport is collected from a nutrient-dense area below the plankton blooms in the Bay of Biscay in the Atlantic Ocean. The plankton blooms convert naturally-occurring inorganic elements into the 78 fully bioavailable minerals and trace elements in the correct proportions to support the life and function of our cells. It is harvested 20-30m below the plankton blooms so as not to interfere with them and ensure it remains a fully sustainable process.
