  • Patent number: 11135165
    Abstract: The present invention provides a suspension comprising aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide and a method of preparing the same. The aqueous suspension composition according to the present invention ensures an excellent sedimentation rate by using a mixed suspending agent with a specific composition, so that insoluble aluminum hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide do not easily settle, do not form a cake, and are easily redispersed. Since the aqueous suspension composition having an excellent sedimentation rate has not only physical stability, but also forms a homogeneous dispersion system, the reproducibility or effectiveness of bioavailability may be ensured. In addition, the aqueous suspension composition according to the present invention provides an excellent texture, and thus patient compliance increases.

  • Patent number: 8808774
    Abstract: The described pKa process creates a unique combination of active ingredients. The calcium carbonate carrier is impregnated with various proportions of active ingredients and the compounds are made more effective by the sheer and absorption action as they are combined in the described process. The calcium carrier is adjusted to incorporate small amounts of highly efficient/effective pH adjusters. No natural solution exists in Nature with a pH of 10.6 that is optimal for adjusting the pKa naturally in foods. The present invention effects a change in the pKa of most acids and therefore impacts pH which can positively affect flavor, color and taste. The reduced moisture process in combination with the invention solution applied as a treatment results in fruits and vegetables that exhibit cleaner flavors, better texture, enhanced color and lower microbial counts than is found in standard IQF vegetables currently available.

  • Patent number: 8795718
    Abstract: The present invention utilizes a nano-coating of an oxide such as silica, a silicate or another effective oxide on a surface to accelerate blood clotting in mammalian animals. The hemostatic layer has a thickness that is effective for the hemostasis, yet can be made thin enough to result in a resorbable film which can either be applied to a biocompatible or resorbable device that can be used in surgical applications as well as in topical applications such as trauma.
