    Abstract: A dosage form with a first portion and a second portion. The first portion can be an immediate release portion and can comprise a pain reliever, which can be naproxen or naproxen sodium. The second portion can be an extended release portion and can comprise pseudoephedrine or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof and/or dextromethorphan or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof. The dosage form can optionally comprise a stabilizing agent. The dosage form can be adapted to maintain a therapeutically effective amount of pain reliever, pseudoephedrine, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, and/or dextromethorphan, or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, for at least eight hours.

  • Patent number: 10568337
    Abstract: A method of maintaining the liquidity of coconut oil (i.e. organic virgin) at room temperature (76° F.) and below, while reducing the coconut taste, and significantly increasing the fat burning/ketone producing property by combining coconut oil (i.e. organic virgin) with medium chain triglycerides (MCT) in predetermined specific ratios, that includes the step of heating the coconut oil to a prescribed temperature for approximately 24 hours (or until liquidity is achieved) and then mixing the liquefied coconut oil with a specified ratio of MCT oil. The resultant composition is a neutral tasting, fat burning/ketone producing oil that remains a liquid at room temperature 76° F. (and below) for use in cooking and foodstuffs such as a salad dressing. In an alternate embodiment, an additional amount of olive oil (i.e. organic extra-virgin) or an omega-3 based oil can be added to further reduce the coconut flavor and enhance the health benefits of the composition.

  • Patent number: 10543237
    Abstract: This invention discloses new krill oil compositions characterized by having high amounts of phospholipids, astaxanthin esters and/or omega-3 contents. The krill oils are obtained from krill meal using supercritical fluid extraction in a two stage process. Stage 1 removes the neutral lipid by extracting with neat supercritical CO2 or CO2 plus approximately 5% of a co-solvent. Stage 2 extracts the actual krill oils by using supercritical CO2 in combination with approximately 20% ethanol. The krill oil materials obtained are compared with commercially available krill oil and found to be more bioeffective in a number of areas such as anti-inflammation, anti-oxidant effects, improving insulin resistances and improving blood lipid profile.

  • Patent number: 10525483
    Abstract: A DAF skimmings separation system 10 that processes SPN/DAF skimmings 11 received from a meat processing facility to separate water and SPN-content solids includes a heating chamber coupled to a processor chamber having one or more pressurized discharge nozzles that expels DAF skimmings onto a spatter plate to cause SPN animal components within the DAF skimmings to break into smaller pieces denaturing the molecular structure and allowing the entrapped moisture to be evaporated within a heated airstream in the processing chamber, for separating nutritionally valuable SPN while reducing moisture content. A method of processing DAF skimmings to yield dryer SPN with reduced moisture content is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10525008
    Abstract: The invention relates to a microencapsulated amino acid composition and methods of manufacturing this composition. Amino acids, such as branched-chain amino acids, have low water solubility, poor hydrophilicity, and poor stability. Amino acids are thus difficult to be digested and absorbed. Consequently amino acids can hardly meet human needs of consuming. This microencapsulated amino acid composition that can quickly disperse and dissolve in cold water, resulting clear solution. The method includes (1) adding coating agents, wetting agents, or other excipients to the amino acid mixture, (2) modifying the surface of microencapsulated particles to considerably accelerate the wetting speed. In this composition, the weight ratio of amino acids and excipients is from 100/0.1 to 100/10.0.
