The Colon Vitamin is patented! On September 6, 2016 the U.S. Patent office issued patent number US 9,433,583 for The Colon Vitamin. This patent affirms the work that Dr. Farrell has done in researching the ingredients of The Colon Vitamin. The U.S. Patent office recognizes the unique and novel ingredients and delivery system of The Colon Vitamin. The most unique feature of The Colon Vitamin is the delivery method for releasing calcium in the colon where the calcium is able to bind with bile acids and fatty acids to neutralize their colon-damaging effects. For a quick overview of the ingredients and the delivery method, watch the one-minute video that is posted on our website here.
The Colon Vitamin is unique in the colon health marketplace in that it is the only product dedicated to delivering micronutrients and antioxidants shown in scientific studies to promote colon health. Other colon health products include the vast array of probiotics, laxatives, stool softeners, fiber supplements and colon cleansing products. The uniqueness of The Colon Vitamin is further underscored by the issuance of the patent.
The initial application for the patent was submitted in early 2011. It took over 5 years for the patent to be issued. The U.S. Patent office did a very thorough assessment of the patent application and our company had to provide numerous supporting documents and scientific articles to support our claims. In the end, the U.S. Patent office agreed. What is especially gratifying is that U.S. Patent office spent a great deal of time reviewing the scientific studies that back the use of the ingredients in The Colon Vitamin. I was quite impressed with their grasp and understanding of the science.
Here’s to your colon health!
