  • Patent number: 10150972
    Abstract: The present invention provides a composition for enhancing immunity. Differing from all commercial vitamin healthcare foods would cause some adverse effects due to excessive vitamin intake, the present invention proposes a Solanum nigrum-fermented product to be a novel composition for enhancing immunity. Moreover, animal experimental results have proved that, this novel composition would not cause any adverse effects (such as poor appetite or liver damage) even if an adult excessively administer the novel composition. In addition, comparing with the commercial healthcare foods always being made to tablets, the Solanum nigrum-fermented product (i.e., the novel composition) can be processed to various forms, such as powder, tablet, capsule, and drink.

  • Patent number: 9073824
    Abstract: A method for cultivating Monarda fistulosa for production of thymoquinone includes planting seeds at rates between about 2.5 and about 5 pounds per acre, preferably about 4 pounds per acre. The heavy rate of planting produces plants bearing oil without weed contamination and reduces herbicide use due to production of natural herbicides by the monarda plants. Seeding and mowing the first season, and harvesting in seasons thereafter reduce costs. The method results in increased production of essential oils including thymoquinone and thymohydroquinone at levels up to about 5% of recovered oils, and which may be distilled from the plant.
