USA: LifeSmart Nutrition files patent for Creatine Soft Chews
Thorpe, North and Western, a leading intellectual property protection firm, handled the patent application on behalf of LifeSmart Nutrition.
The LifeSmart patent aims to protect its unique soft chew delivery system and distinctive manufacturing process. The Creatine Soft Chews use ultra-micronized creatine and a special blend of sugars to enhance absorption by the body. The chews' manufacturing method guards the creatine from contact with liquid throughout product creation, giving the final product a stable and effective pH factor.
Supplements featuring creatine, a naturally occurring substance that has been linked to increased athletic performance, have grown into a burgeoning market with more than $600 million in annual sales. LifeSmart's management is positioning the soft chews to capture a meaningful portion of the creatine sector in the near future.
LifeSmart is a nutraceutical company that has spent the past three years developing an impressive product line geared toward providing great-tasting nutritional products to the masses. LifeSmart has secured relationships to 23,000 distribution outlets and has sold and shipped private label orders to several major national retailers.
