Application number: 20140302163
Abstract: A process for preparing conventional water sources for providing “ideal state” cellular wellness benefits via topical hydration and natural transdermal, epithelial or epicellular absorption. The invention's process considers preconditioned water sources that have removed solids, dissolved solids, contaminants—both organic and inorganic and subsequently the method purifies the water respective of removing pathogens, and structures the water for cellular uptake in the form of vicinal grade water, with improved characteristics of ideal frequency, cluster size, pH, before safely introducing negative ORP (highly ionized state) to the water structure and organic nutrients or other supplemental pharmaceutical grade organic materials onto the skin or epithelial/epicellular environments surrounding tissue and cells.

Application number: 20140287088
Abstract: This invention relates to addition of calcium citrate-malate in the feed of young animals and poultry. Growth in young animals and poultry is rapid. During the early stages of development, a highly soluble and bioavailable source of calcium is needed for healthy growth and bone development. In addition, this invention also relates to a source of calcium in the feed of laying hens. Laying hens require large quantity of calcium for eggshell formation. While the hens can mobilize calcium from bone to supplement the dietary calcium, the mobilization is slow and inefficient. The mobilization of bone calcium is also detrimental to health of hens. Laying hens often have bone defects and inferior eggshell. The addition of calcium citrate-malate to feeds and milk replacers of young animals enhances the bioavailability calcium for growth and bone development and improves health and eggshell quality of laying hens.

Abstract: In a ruminant feed, rumen undegraded protein (“RUP”), which is protein orally ingested and passed through the rumen in an undegraded or undigested state, is determined through analysis of feed components in the feed and is used to modify the feed formulation to control a level of RUP exiting the rumen of the ruminant. Additionally the RUP and rumen undegraded neutral detergent fiber (“RUNDF”) content of selected feed components may be received based on an analysis of the feed components and the feed ration may be formulated accordingly. The RUP content may be determined by comparing analysis results with a calibration curve of previously analyzed feed components.
