The modification of dietary fat intake can alter the fatty acid composition of membrane structures in the body. Even the fatty acid composition of the heart, which one might think of as a very stable tissue, can be rapidly modified. The fatty acid composition of most membranes adapts to some extent to the type of fat available in the diet. This flexibility is surprising, considering the vital role that membranes play in so many cellular functions. Diet-induced changes in membrane lipid composition support the old adage, "you are what you eat."

The typical American diet has an average fat intake just under 33% of total calories consumed. This value is well within the range that is considered healthy by the dietary recommended intake (DRI) committee; however, it was furthered revealed that 25% of the population consumes 35% or more of their total calories from fat. Typically, the American on-the-go diet is high in saturated and trans fatty acids, often referred to as "bad" fat from fast and processed foods like hamburgers, most desserts, French fries, etc. Over time, the consumption of foods that are rich in "bad" fat has been found to promote health risks. However, the diet also provides "good" fat, which must be consumed on a daily basis for general health and well-being.

  • Omega-3 fatty acids consist of the parent compound ALA and its derivatives EPA and DHA, which can be found in ample quantities in fish, sardines, walnuts and flax seed oil. They are essential for the optimal function of every cell in the body; yet, ALA cannot be manufactured internally and must be obtained through the diet and supplementation. ALA is the shortest chain form of omega-3 and is the only form found in plants. EPA and DHA are both precursors for several classes of hormone-like structures known as eicosanoids and docosanoids. Eicosanoids and docosanoids synthesized from EPA and DHA produce the products PGE-3 (prostaglandin), LTB-5 (leukotriene) and TXA-3 (thromboxane), which are primarily responsible for the positive heart and anti-inflammatory properties associated with omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is also the most abundant PUFA in the brain and retina where it comprises 40% of the PUFAs in the brain and 60% of the PUFAs in the retina. Among many other functions In the body, DHA modulates the carrier-mediated transport of choline (methyl donor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine), glycine (amino acid) and taurine (amino acid derivative) and the response of rhodopsin (pigment that allows for night vision), which is contained in the rod cells of the eye. By incorporating omega-3 fatty acids into the diet, the composition of most membranes will adapt to some extent to the type of fat available, modifying the synthesis of hormone-like substances, thus, aiding in heart, brain and joint health.
  • Omega-6 fatty acids consist of the parent compound linoleic acid (LA) and its derivatives gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and arachidonic acid (AA) and are naturally found in flax seed oils. LA and GLA are precursors for prostaglandins, which are hormone-like substances in the body that positively influence blood pressure, heart rate, inflammation and the immune response. Dietary sources rich in LA and GLA include evening primrose and borage oil.
  • Omega-9 fatty acids are not essential fatty acids; however, they are still important for good health. Oleic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid found in olives and olive oil and is a key element of the Mediterranean diet, which benefits the heart by promoting healthy lipid levels.

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 we 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 our 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, we purchase raw materials in small quantities. And when ingredients enter our warehouse, they are quarantined and sent to Bluebonnet Nutrition's on-site quality assurance laboratory to undergo raw material identification and microbial testing. 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.

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 our 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. And not just by in-house quality control technicians, but by respected independent laboratories. That is quality that will last even after you have opened the bottle. 

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.
