Why discontinue it?

Posted by Reviewer1327155 on Aug 05, 2013 | Verified Purchase

I am hypothyroid and it is very difficult to find supplements that are soy free. So when I find one, I like to stick with it. This one was soy free, the oil-based one they have is not. It WAS a good product.

Thanks for your feedback!

Helps combat photosynsensitivity

Posted by Reviewer2321442 on Nov 06, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I was on a prescribed medication which caused photosensitivity, even after I discontinued taking the medication. My face blistered when I went out in the sun, even when wearing sunblock, hat & sunglasses. I took high doses of this product (100,000/day) and after a month, I was able to go out in the sun again with no side effects. I highly recommend this product.

Bluebonnet appears to be lying about vegetarian status of product

Posted by Reviewer1965845 on Jul 13, 2011 | Verified Purchase

I sent the email below to Bluebonnet Nutrition more than 6 weeks ago and am still yet to receive a reply. If including animal derived gelatin in this product was a genuine mistake, I would expect Bluebonnet to change the product, stop claiming it is vegetarian or at least reply to my email. They have done none of these things. They can no longer claim they don't know what's in their product - I've brought it up with them. But they are still selling their product as if they didn't know. I will not be buying any Bluebonnet product again, as it appears this company is happy to lie about their products, which is a serious safety issue in an industry that relies heavily on trust. Even if they were still unaware of this mistake, it presents serious concerns, as it means they are doing the absolute minimum of research into what they put in their capsules - it was very easy for me to discover they weren't vegetarian (and I'm not the manufacturer!). Whether they are knowingly lying, or completely unaware of what they are putting into their capsules, it means you can't trust that what is written on a Bluebonnet label is actually what you're putting into your body. Beware. The email: Hi there I am interested in Bluebonnet’s Beta-Carotene 25,000 IU Vcaps, but I have a couple of questions about them. The product labeling and page on Bluebonnet's website (http://www.bluebonnetnutrition.com/product/59/Beta-Carotene_25,000_IU_Vcaps) state that this product is vegetarian, but the information about Betatene on the website of Cognis, the manufacturer of Betatene, seems to disagree (http://www.cognis.com/NR/rdonlyres/CBA4E8A2-D3F3-4E60-A254-10FB3CCF8298/0/Betatene_Brochure.pdf page 6-7). In Bluebonnet's product, a quick observation reveals that the Betatene is obviously in the form of microencapsulated beadlets, but all three products listed in the Betatene information brochure on Cognis's website in microencapsulated beadlet form are made with gelatin or fish gelatin – non-vegetarian products. My questions are: 1. Are you using Betatene® 7.5% N, Betatene® 10% N or Betatene® 10% N OU (the three non-vegetarian microencapsulated beadlet products listed in the Betatene brochure)? If so, the product is not vegetarian, and should not be labelled as vegetarian. 2. If you are using a different Betatene product, please describe what it is, as I have found no mention of a vegetarian microencapsulated beadlet form of Betatene anywhere. Thanks a lot

Keeps my face clear

Posted by Reviewer3121335 on Mar 09, 2011 | Verified Purchase

Seems to be keeping my cystic acne at bay. Haven't see much of a change in my rosacea, although I want to give it a couple more weeks to see if it helps at all with the flushing.

Thanks for your feedback!

This is 100% vegetarian for beta-carotene. The cost is minimal for this product.
