Bluebonnet Nutrition Acetyl L-Carnitine 250 mg Free-Form Amino Acid - 30 Vcaps

Bluebonnet’s Acetyl L-Carnitine 250 mg Vcaps provide free-form acetyl L-carnitine HCI 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.”

In general, although both animal and plant foods contain protein, the quality of the protein is what differs. High-quality (complete) protein provides an ample amount of all nine essential amino acids. Animal foods, such as meats, poultry, eggs and milk, are considered high-quality (complete) protein sources versus vegetables, which contain no or low levels of some of the essential amino acids with the exception of soybeans. Egg white albumin is the main protein found in egg white, making up 60-65% of the total protein. Whey is one of the principal proteins that is found in milk and is the protein of choice because of its superior biological value (BV) of 159, as well as being a rich, natural source of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and immunoglobulins.

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. Consumption of high-quality (complete) protein is directly related to the rehabilitation and rate of normal repair of muscle and tissue. 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

Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC) is the acetyl form of L-carnitine, an amino acid derivative, which is found throughout the central nervous system as a source of acetyl groups for the synthesis of acetylcholine (neurotransmitter) and for acetyl CoA, which is utilized in energy-producing reactions in the Krebs cycle and is essential in transporting long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent fat breakdown (beta-oxidation) and energy production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

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, Bluebonnet Nutrition is 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. Bluebonnet Nutrition leading the way. Since the launch of Bluebonnet Nutrition's company in the heart of Sugar Land, Texas, they have carefully sowed the seeds of success by Bluebonnet Nitrition's 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.

The Best the Earth Can Offer
Bluebonnet Nutrition's first commitment has always been to nature. Not only so they can identify nutrients that are good, pure and wholesome, but also so they can harness nature's power and benefit from its strength. Bluebonnet Nutrition searched the world for locations where climate, temperature and soil converge to grow the finest raw materials. Conducting frequent on-site inspections, Bluebonnet Nutrition's ingredient selections are never based on price, but instead on one simple criterion: Is it the best the Earth has to offer? To preserve nature's freshness, Bluebonnet Nutrition purchases raw materials in small quantities.  If a nutrient does not meet Bluebonnet Nutrition's stringent quality standards, it cannot be used in Bluebonnet supplements.

Everything Purple Starts Off Green
Bluebonnet’s dedication to nature does not end with ingredient selection. Bluebonnet Nutrition's is an enterprise-wide effort that encompasses environmentally sound manufacturing practices and operations and green initiatives that support the philosophy of a whole new generation of health-conscious, “green” consumers who believe in reducing our dependency on fossil fuel, sustainability and social responsibility, which involves giving back to our communities, country and world-at-large, Specifically, Bluebonnet Nutrition has implemented conservational practices from instituting a corporate-wide recycling program, to using recyclable paper and corrugated packaging and shippers whenever possible, as well as biodegradable packing materials that dissolve in landfills, to printing their marketing materials with soy-based inks. Plus, Bluebonnet supports efforts and teachings on ecological preservation, which is why Bluebonnet Nutrition contributes to two non-profit organizations, United Plant Savers and American Botanical Council, devoted to sustainability and education. In addition, not only does Bluebonnet Nutrition manufacture in their own environmentally-friendly, state-of-the-art facility, but they use alternative energy sources (e.g., wind and solar) whenever possible to help reduce their carbon footprint. And most importantly, in the spirit of giving back, Bluebonnet embraces its civic responsibilities by contributing to the Houston Buyers Club, whose core mission is to improve the quality of life for people with health-related conditions through nutritional education and affordable nutritional supplements.

Innovation is Only Natural
With over 100 years of collective industry experience in nutritional science, Bluebonnet Nutrition's product development team is not only ensuring that Bluebonnet supplements are safe and efficacious, they're also committed to developing cleaner, more effective formulas. In fact, Bluebonnet has been the first to launch some of the industry's most innovative ingredients, such as ubiquinol, licorice flavonoid oil (Glavonoid™), grape seed extract, vegetarian SOD (GliSODin™) and nucleotides. And in a highly competitive, uninspired protein beverage market, they have included the latter two revolutionary ingredients in the most unique protein formulas to hit the market in years: Super Earth™ Phytonutrient Soy Protein Powder and Multi-Action Whey of Life™ Protein Powder.

Setting New Standards
Quality may be the most overused word in the world today. Nonetheless, for nutritional supplements, what could be more important? That is why Bluebonnet Nutrition built their own 100,000 sq ft, state-of-the-art kosher manufacturing and distribution facility with earth-friendly, pharmaceutical-grade systems that are setting new standards for quality assurance. Plus, they have also invested in the arduous process of kosher certifying Bluebonnet Nutrition's products. Since keeping kosher has become synonymous with eating foods that have been manufactured at a higher standard, Bluebonnet products bearing the KOF-K emblem have been carefully supervised with each ingredient tracked to its origin and strict rules imposed on hygienic processes. In addition to applying kosher quality standards to their operation, Bluebonnet Nutrition manufacturing process meets the rigorous model established by the U.S. Pharmacopoeia - even though they don't have to. By the time a Bluebonnet supplement appears on a store shelf, it has been subjected to stringent examinations for potency, purity, uniformity, hardness, disintegration and dissolution.

Just the Facts
There are so few absolute truths in the world today - except when it comes to nutritional supplements. Nutrients are either in the supplement or they are not. Bluebonnet Nutrition makes sure they are. Not only does Bluebonnet Nutrition manufacture 90% of their products in-house, they employ a unique practice called "content uniformity" to ensure a consistent nutrient blend from batch to batch. It is part of Bluebonnet's commitment to the natural products industry, as well as their own principles. Before a Bluebonnet supplement arrives at a natural food store, it is analyzed and evaluated by lab technicians. Through HPLC assay tests, Bluebonnet documents with 100% accuracy that what is on the label is in the bottle. Bluebonnet Nutrition even performs accelerated stability tests to ensure that potency levels will be maintained through the expiration date. Bottomline, on Bluebonnet labels, what you read is always what you get.

Meeting Nutritional Needs
Bluebonnet offers a complete line of natural vitamins, minerals, multiples, amino acids, proteins, herbal extracts, and specialty supplements, such as antioxidants, CoQ10/ubiquinol, glucosamine, omega fatty acids, fiber/digestive aids, probiotics and food supplements. All made without unnecessary colors, flavors, fillers, binders or excipients. Choose a "delivery system" that suits your lifestyle: caplets, mini-caplets, softgels, chewables, liquids, powders or Kosher vegetarian capsules. Your loyalty and trust in Bluebonnet Nutrition's nutritional supplements is greatly appreciated by the Bluebonnet family.
