At USANA, we’re proud to formulate each of our products with science in mind. And as a keystone product, we’ve always known our USANA CellSentials supplements support overall health—now, we have a U.S. patent to back it up.*
After years of hard work, research, and patience, USANA has been issued a groundbreaking U.S. patent for our InCelligence Complex formula found in Vita Antioxidant, one half of our CellSentials. The patent—U.S. Pat. No. 10,632,101—is unique to the health and wellness industry. It recognizes the U.S. formula of our InCelligence Complex contains antioxidant compounds that support systems associated with cellular efficiency, cellular energy, and optimal lifespans.*
The InCelligence Complex in Vita Antioxidant contains a powerful blend of eight ingredients to support a network of cell-signaling pathways. This patented combination includes*:
- Alpha lipoic acid
- Meriva® Bioavailable Curcumin†
- Green Tea Extract
- Olivol Olive-Fruit Extract
Rigorous Research and Development
The patent was submitted by Executive Director of Laboratory Research Dr. Mark Brown, Director of New Product Research Dr. Jeremy Tian, and retired USANA employee Dr. John Cuomo. And, considering just over half of all patents are approved each year, for USANA to acquire one with such serious claims behind it proves how special our InCelligence formula is.
“USANA has always been considered a pioneer in the health and wellness industry, and this patent separates us even further from the competition,” says Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Rob Sinnott. “I would like to thank Drs. Brown, Tian, and Cuomo for all their hard work on this project. What they have accomplished is a huge game changer for USANA.”
“Our patent addresses the aging process at the subcellular level through a process called mitophagy, which may help defend against oxidative stress and subsequent damage,” says Dr. Tian. “Our formula is the first to achieve such a functionality in a supplement form, and with a clear and specific molecular mechanism of action.”*
“When we designed the InCelligence Complex, we wanted to create a formula to help the body protect itself from stress and renew youthful, normal cellular function,” says Dr. Brown. “I’m so proud of the work our team has done on the formulation, clinical testing, and patent submission for the InCelligence Complex. You truly don’t find this kind of dedication to the scientific method anywhere else but USANA.”*
