The powerburst of vitality is a powerburst potion that doubles current and maximum life points for 6 seconds. It is made at level 105 Herblore in a powerburst vial with primal extract, poison slime, a Saradomin brew, and a rocktail. Drinking this triggers the global powerburst cooldown, which prevents drinking another powerburst potion for two minutes.

At level 107 Herblore, the recipe is improved, which reduces the time taken to make the potion. At level 109, it is further improved, reducing the number of poison slime required from two to one, and reducing the dosage of the Saradomin brew from four to three. Boosted levels do not count to improved recipes.

At the end of the powerburst's effect, current and maximum life points are halved, essentially making it a pseudo-Debilitate regarding damage taken. It should be used when the player's health is high to minimize damage and avoid eating during the duration of the powerburst, as eating food during the 6 second period will essentially halve it once the powerburst wears off.
