    Bluebonnet Nutrition High Potency Amino Acid Capsules - 60 Vcaps

    Bluebonnet Nutrition's High Potency Amino Acid Capsules provide pure pharmaceutical grade amino acids and dipeptide bond amino acids derived entirely from whey lactalbumin and egg white albumin protein. Bluebonnet Nutrition's High Potency Amino Acid is available in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.

    Amino Acids
    Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and proteins are the building blocks of life. The human body is constantly assembling, breaking down and using proteins on a daily basis. In fact, 10 to 25% of caloric energy should come from high-quality, complete proteins. However, the role of amino acids is not only limited to the synthesis of proteins. They also function as intermediates in metabolism. There are twenty “standard” amino acids used by cells in protein biosynthesis. Of the 20+ amino acids, 9 are “essential” and are required in the diet since the body cannot produce them. “Nonessential” amino acids, on the other hand, are produced in the body from other amino acids when given an adequate supply of nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Yet, even some of these nonessential amino acids are necessary at certain life stages or during certain situations, which is why some are considered “conditionally essential.”

    Amino acids are vital for the body's ability to function at an optimal level. Unlike fat and carbohydrates, the human body does not store excess amino acids for later use. Amino acids must be obtained from the diet on a daily basis to meet the needs of the body. In different life styles and at different life stages, human beings have special protein requirements. They are crucial and have wide-ranging roles, including: the repair and maintenance of muscles, organs, nails, hair, skin, ligaments, connective tissues, glands, etc. Because amino acids are considered the building blocks of life, specifically protein, a deficiency in even one of them can have detrimental effects on one's health and well-being. Furthermore, the following people can benefit tremendously from protein/amino acid supplementation: 

    • athletes
    • individuals who lead an active lifestyle
    • individuals who have undergone trauma from surgery or an accident
    • individuals who have ill-fitting dentures

    L-Arginine has been used widely by athletes, due to the fact that it helps to stimulate growth hormone and increases the production of glutamate and creatine, as well as nitric oxide, which plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow. This, in turn, has been shown in studies to facilitate the maintenance of lean body tissue and to improve physical performance. Furthermore, L-arginine has also recently been found in studies at higher potencies to be effective in maintaining cardiovascular health. 

    L-Carnitine is not an amino acid but rather an amino acid derivative that is responsible for transporting long-chained fatty acids from the cytosol of the cell across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent fat breakdown (beta-oxidation) and energy production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). 

    L-Glycine acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It is of major importance in the synthesis of proteins, ATP, glucose and bile salts. Furthermore, since L-glycine is the smallest of the amino acids, it is utilized in the chelation of minerals to propel them through the bloodstream for enhanced absorption and bioavailability. 

    L-Lysine plays a major role in calcium absorption, blood sugar metabolism and in the formation of new collagen, a main structural component of connective tissues. Since L-lysine is also involved in the production of antibodies, enzymes and hormones, it is an important player in immune function as well. 

    L-Phenylalanine serves a vital role in producing neurotransmitters by being converted into tyrosine. Tyrosine is then further metabolized into the neurotransmitters, norepinephrine and epinephrine, the body's two main stress-related hormones involved in the flight or fight response, thus helping to support mood. 

    L-Tryptophan is converted into serotonin once it crosses the blood-brain barrier and is then further metabolized into melatonin, which has been shown in studies to help induce sleep, calm behaviors, reduce carbohydrate cravings and potentially reduce PMS symptoms. The free-form brand, TryptoPure® by Ajinomoto, a vegetarian, pharmaceutical–grade L-tryptophan, is derived from a traditional yet time-tested microbial fermentation process using corn and is guaranteed to be free of EBT/EMS impurity. 

    L-Tyrosine is metabolized into norepinephrine and epinephrine, the body’s two main stress-related hormones involved in the flight or fight response, which help the body adapt to and cope with the physical and psychological effects of stress.

    Nutrition to the Fifth Power
    Bluebonnet Nutrition was founded in 1991 on the basic principle that they offer the cleanest, purest, most natural nutritional supplements offered exclusively through independent natural food retailers. Today, they are proud to say that they still honor this commitment and that their devotion is true and loyal.

    The landscape of nutrition is changing rapidly. However, Bluebonnet Nutrition is not simply changing with it. They're leading the way. Since the launch of their company in the heart of Sugar Land, Texas, They've carefully sowed the seeds of success by their unwavering pledge to the five powers of Bluebonnet Nutrition: Nature, Science, Quality, Truth and Knowledge - one power for every petal of the Texas state flower from which they take their name.

    A Family Affair
    Bluebonnet Nutrition is a family-run, independent company similar to the independent natural product retailers they serve. The members of the Barrows family and the extended Bluebonnet family have been actively involved in the natural products industry for decades with the same business virtue of naturalness, purity, innovation, accessibility, integrity, loyalty and quality. They are driven by their close relationships with natural product retailers, who have knowledgeable staff to lead health-conscious consumers to those products that will specifically address their individual nutritional needs and health concerns. No other retail outlet can provide that level of service and expertise.
     
    An Award-Winning Company
    It was because of this commitment to the founding principals upon which the industry was founded that Bluebonnet Nutrition was awarded the first 'Manufacturer of the Year' by Vitamin Retailer in 2006. In fact, Vitamin Retailer Magazine sought input from leading natural product retailers asking them to identify companies in the industry that exemplified the following criteria: leadership, noteworthy/distinctive product line, innovative product development, high-quality manufacturing standards, strong relationship with retailers, community outreach, trade association involvement, reputation, company growth rate, and financial standing. This award acknowledges the strength in the partnership between Bluebonnet and the natural product retailers they serve with a loyalty to the industry that is unrivaled.
     
    They've been honored once again by natural products retailers nationwide as one of the top two supplement lines to receive the coveted 2009 Natural Choice Award from Whole Foods Magazine. In addition, Bluebonnet was awarded the 2009 Best of Supplements Award from Better Nutrition under the heart health category for their Cellular Active? CoQ10 Ubiquinol products. This journey to the top has not been by accident but by design. As a company, they have carefully plotted a path that specifically meets the needs of this industry and their customers. And they are extraordinarily grateful for being acknowledged for that commitment, as well as their dedication to state-of-the-art manufacturing, the environment, ecological preservation, social responsibility, energy conservation, waste reduction and most importantly providing the industry with the highest quality, natural and pure, gluten-free, kosher supplements on the market.

    An Unrivaled Quality Value
    The fact that Bluebonnet has been recognized once again by their cherished retailers in light of all of the positive efforts happening on their end is reassuring and extraordinarily gratifying. If you are wondering how Bluebonnet has achieved the level of success over their short 20-year history, they believe there are a multitude of reasons. Whether it's selecting the best ingredients the Earth has to offer, or developing pure and unique, cutting-edge formulas based on science, or manufacturing and packaging to the highest eco-friendly and quality standards, or instituting "green" practices throughout their entire operations, or distributing to only natural food retailers, Bluebonnet Nutrition takes pride in every step of the process to guarantee that they deliver the most pure, potent, high-quality natural nutritional supplements available with as little impact on the environment as possible.
     
    So as a consumer of Bluebonnet products, you can be assured that your choice is a wise one that packs the punch on natural quality and value. Your commitment to healthy living and intelligent nutritional choices has both short- and long-term health benefits. They are proud to be helping a generation of health-conscious consumers like you get even healthier, and they are grateful to you for making them an integral part of your daily healthcare regimen.
