CARLSBAD, Calif. (PRWEB) October 25, 2018
The keto market is red hot with growing sales of the ketone body called beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). Many are trying to capitalize on this growing market by violating the BHB patent exclusively licensed by Compound Solutions (CSI) and sold under the trademark goBHB®. According to court documents, Compound Solutions has sued Vitajoy, a raw material distributor, and Equinox, a contract manufacturer of dietary supplements.
Matt Titlow, CEO of CSI said, “We’ve sent twenty cease and desist letters. Now we’re in the next stage of the fight and have filed two lawsuits, with more coming imminently. Our goal is to turn violators into customers.”
CSI has commercialized many popular ingredients in the nutritional supplement industry, from sports nutrition to keto. It has a long history of working with its partners to strongly defend ingredient intellectual property. CSI licensed the patent from Axcess Global, an intellectual property company specializing in the ketogenic sector. Only CSI has the right to sell the patented BHB.
Titlow continued, “In addition to patent protection, we’re also the only BHB in the world with regulatory compliance. Our client partners can count on us to continue this level of support, and to ensure there is a level playing field in the market.”
