  • Publication number: 20140199367
    Abstract: The present invention relates to liquid application for skin rejuvenation created from specific amino acids, lipids, nucleic acids and vitamins. This collection of molecules delivers precisely the factors necessary to a specific site requiring healing; a direct intervention system to most expeditiously remodel skin with building blocks. This delivery is a transdermal topical delivery and healing is via specific molecules that engender a false autocoid reaction rapidly followed by an incremental healing-anti-inflammatory response augmented by very specific GRAS ingredients in the invention and also recruited from the body to this needy site. Energy is brought to site by transdermally delivered protons and enhanced by the local vascular flow initiated by transdermal molecules. This delivery system bypasses digestion and dilution. Key is a lipophilic carrier with nuclear and mitochondrial ligands that rapidly penetrate and permeate all membranes and truncates the inflammatory site quickly manifesting curation.

  • Patent number: 8652531
    Abstract: There is provided on-demand, oxygen generating topical compositions having a built-in indicator specifically to indicate a color change upon the complete mixing of the oxygen precursor and catalyst. The first part of the composition contains a carrier and manganese dioxide (MnO2) nanoparticles. The second part of the composition comprises the oxygen precursor; hydrogen peroxide. When the two parts, one with manganese dioxide nanoparticles and exhibiting a characteristic color, (e.g. yellow brown) and the second part with hydrogen peroxide are mixed together, the color imparted by the manganese dioxide nanoparticles essentially disappears and the final composition (enriched with oxygen) either appears colorless or takes on the original color of the catalyst. Thus, the manganese dioxide catalyst nanoparticles themselves serve as the colorimetric indicator of peroxide decomposition to oxygen, precluding the need for an external colorant.

  • Publication number: 20130295146
    Abstract: It has now been found that after administration to a diseased person or person that is at risk for developing such disease of a neutraceutical or pharmaceutical composition that comprises: a) a lipid fraction comprising at least one of docosahexaneoic acid (DHA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA); b) a protein fraction comprising proteinaceous material from non-human origin which provide at least cysteine and/or taurine; and c) a mineral fraction comprising at least one of manganese and molybdene, the health of these persons improves. Membrane function of several types of mammalian cells improves, which allows efficient treatment of immune related disorders, such as allergy, autoimmune diseases, cancer, cognitive dysfunction and other diseases of the nervous system, neuropathies, such as diabetic neuropathies and neuropathic pains, neuronal damage during insulin resistance, and gut diseases and support of the development of gut and lung function during growth or recovery.
