The general role of herbs is to support and protect bodily functions and processes. In fact, they have been used traditionally to implement a shift in underlying physiological processes so that the body can readily defend itself and/or adapt to any situation at hand. More specifically, herbs have been used safely and effectively since the time of recorded Eastern and Western history for an endless list of reasons, such as general health and wellness, healing, immunity/resistance, weight and stress management, raising and renewing body vitality/energy, and a whole cadre of structure/function applications in the body.
Aside from their medicinal qualities, herbs can also provide the body phytonutrients it does not always receive from either a poor diet or environmental deficiencies in the soil and air. Herbs contain a variety of active constituents that generally act in a wider, more general, less specific way than most single ingredient therapies. As previously mentioned, recognition of the potential health-promoting effects of plants can be traced back to ancient civilizations, including Egypt, China, Greece and India, as well as the Native Americans in the New World. In fact, many of the medicines currently available on the market today originally came from plants that have been part of the daily diet for centuries. Indeed, the writings of the 5th century Greek physician Hippocrates support the notion,
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
Standardizing herbs is a process that ensures a precise amount in each serving of the particular active constituent(s) in a given herb, proven to have specific pharmacological benefits. Standardization requires control from every aspect of the agricultural and manufacturing processes and beyond to guarantee a consistent product every time. Bluebonnet's herbal products with standardized extracts are manufactured without using any harmful solvents and are made of the purest herbal raw materials available on the market today.
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.
