Bluebonnet's 100% Natural Dual-Action Protein is sourced from grass-fed cows that are not treated with antibiotics and recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), also known as bovine somatotropin (BST)†. Additionally, this product provides a dynamic blend of whey protein isolate and micellar casein that works throughout your workout and during the recovery phase at night. Whey protein isolate has the highest biological value (BV) of any protein on the market, which refers to a protein that has all the necessary essential amino acids for protein biosynthesis and is fast-acting to support amino acid replenishment required during and after strenuous activities. Plus, this revolutionary protein formula includes extended-action micellar casein that works well beyond strenuous activities to continually rebuild broken down muscle. While both whey protein isolate and micellar casein are rich sources of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and glutamic acid, whey protein isolate alone provides the naturally occurring immunoglobulins that help support the immune system, which is transiently depressed during strenuous activity.

Unlike the common practice of using heat-processed whey protein isolate and micellar casein that can denature (render useless) the protein and immunoglobulins, Bluebonnet employs a special low-temperature, microfiltration process that removes excess fat while leaving the protein undenatured and immunoglobulins intact.

For athletes, sports enthusiasts, weekend warriors and active individuals, take Bluebonnet's 100% Natural Dual-Action Protein with:

  • Bluebonnet's BCAAs Vcaps - for building and repairing muscle.
  • Bluebonnet's GliSODin Vegetarian SOD Vcaps - for reducing oxidative stress.
  • Bluebonnet's L-Glutamine Powder - for building lean muscle.
  • Bluebonnet's Nucleotide Complex 500 mg Vcaps - for producing energy and repairing muscle.

†The Federal Government has determined there is no significant compositional difference in the milk or milk by-products from rBST or rBGH treated or untreated cows.

FAQ

Does everyone need supplements? Not everyone needs supplements. However, just about everyone can benefit from supplements. You may have a specific issue you want to address, like fatigue or trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time. Or you may feel great, in which case supplements are like oiling the parts of a well-running machine so that it keeps performing at its best.

Why can’t I get all the vitamins and minerals I need from my food? That would be great, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, most of the soil in which our food crops are grown has been depleted through extensive use. Hundreds of years ago, farmers could let fields “rest” for a season while the soil renewed itself with the help of rain, earthworms and microbial activity. Now with a more populated planet and higher food demands, fields are kept in production and the soil becomes depleted.

How do I know which supplements to take? If you have no specific health issues, start with a basic multivitamin or even with just vitamin C, proven to help prevent and shorten the duration of colds and flu-related illnesses.

If I take supplements, can I worry less about my diet? Supplements are never a substitute for a good, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting enough sleep AND fine-tuning your health with supplements can be a powerful combination.

Are supplements safe to take? Although supplements are generally safe, it’s always best to check with your doctor before starting on a program of supplements. Some supplements may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. And the most important thing is to observe how you feel while taking a particular supplement. Listen to the feedback your body will give you!

What if I’m pregnant? If you’re pregnant, ask your doctor or midwife about a good prenatal supplement. You may need extra iron or folic acid during your pregnancy, and prenatal vitamins are formulated with both you and the baby in mind.

Can supplements make me look better? Many people swear by treating their skin from the inside out. Popular beauty-boosting supplements are hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants. When combined with exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and use of sunscreen, these supplements can be a powerful weapon in your beauty arsenal.

Can supplements keep me from getting COVID-19? While no supplement has proven effective in preventing or curing COVID-19, a healthy body is more resistant to illnesses. Get enough sleep and exercise, drink plenty of water, eat the healthiest diet you can and find the right supplements for your body! Many people love immune-boosting supplements such as turmeric, ginger and of course, vitamin C.

Can supplements help me with stress? Many people swear by plant-based calming supplements such as chamomile, rhodiola rosea or ashwagandha. Melatonin is also popular for enhancing sleep. We believe that a healthy body is naturally more resistant to the stresses of everyday life, but you may need extra help from a supplement during a particularly stressful period.

How can I find the right supplement for me? Read, take advantage of the information we offer here, ask your friends and family what has worked for them, and ask your doctor! Then finally, choose a supplement according to your needs and observe how you feel while taking it. And lastly, congratulate yourself for taking an important step towards a healthier you!
