Bluebonnet Nutrition Chelated Magnesium Citrate 400 mg. - 120 Caplets

Bluebonnet Nutriton's Magnesium Citrate 400 mg. Caplets provide magnesium in a chelate of magnesium citrate. Bluebonnet Nutrition's Chelated Magnesium Citrate is available in easy-to-swallow caplets for maximum assimilation and absorption.

Magnesium (macromineral) helps maintain muscles, nerves, bones, and teeth and is essential for carbohydrate and protein metabolism, cell reproduction, and smooth muscle action, including heart muscle tone. Magnesium is required for cellular metabolism and energy production. It also facilitates absorption of calcium and potassium and the processing of vitamin D. Dietary sources high in magnesium include milk, cheese, green leafy vegetables, yogurt, grains, apples, bananas and wheat bran.

Minerals
Dietary minerals serve a life sustaining function by helping the body to operate properly and remain strong. Minerals build skeletal and soft tissues, as well as regulate processes, such as heartbeat, normal blood clotting, internal fluid pressure, nerve reactions, impulse transmissions, muscle contractions, oxygen transport, acid-base balance to keep the body pH neutral, and enzyme and hormone systems.

In addition, dietary minerals make up 60-80% of all the inorganic (non-carbon containing) material in the body, and they fall into two categories: macrominerals and microminerals. There are seven macrominerals, also known as major or bulk minerals: calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur. They are present in virtually every cell in the body and at least 100 mg of each are needed daily just for normal functioning and well-being. Microminerals, commonly called trace minerals, are required in smaller quantities Ð typically less than 100 mg per day. Still, some are considered “essential” for good nutrition. Essential microminerals include chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc.

Unfortunately, dietary minerals have low bioavailability, which means in their natural state, they are not readily available for use in the body. This is because minerals are too big and bulky with high molecular weights, so they are unable to cross the intestinal membrane intact. To enable dietary minerals to pass through the intestinal wall where they can be absorbed into the blood stream, they are usually attached to a “carriers.” This is why minerals are found in various forms like magnesium aspartate and calcium citrate.

Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids; thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.

Albion Laboratories has developed a process that produces a stable, nutritionally functional mineral chelate that provides reliable and effective mineral nutrition. Albion’s patented technology replicates the body’s natural chelation process, essentially turning inorganic minerals into small, highly bioavailable organic molecules (non-ionized). This process ensures that the mineral will remain stable throughout digestion and ultimately result in maximum absorption.

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.
