"Consumers deserve fair competition in the BHB marketplace just like everywhere else, and New U Life is proud to help make that happen," said Brian Galvin, Lead Patent Counsel for New U Life.

New U Life—the purveyors of innovative, high quality wellness products announced its filing of Inter Partes Review No. IPR2019-01141 filed on June 4, 2019 with the United States Patent and Trademark Office Before the Patent Trial and Appeals Board.

U.S. Patent Number 6,613,356 (“356 Patent”) alleges a new invention for “butyrate related chemicals [to] reduce appetite” and “weight loss by means of appetite suppression.” The petition filing demonstrates the ‘356 Patent should have never issued since appetite suppression and weight loss by administration of butyrate and related compounds were well-known more than one year prior to the earliest possible priority date of the ‘356 Patent.

Brian Galvin, Lead Patent Counsel for New U Life said, “Pruvit Ventures and their partners have been aggressively overreaching in their attempts to forestall all competition in the BHB ketosis market. I am honored to be working with New U Life to stop Pruvit’s bad behavior by challenging the validity of the patent in the Patent Office, and elsewhere. Consumers deserve fair competition in the BHB marketplace just like everywhere else, and New U Life is proud to help make that happen.”

KetoGen4 is a first-of-its-kind drink mix which was designed with the intention of being the most complete ketone supplement on the market. KetoGen4’s exclusive 4-BHB salt combo will provide an optimal state of ketosis with its immediate source of exogenous ketones, vital vitamins, and nutrients. Ketosis is a metabolic process in which the body stores burned fat rather than glucose, resulting in fat loss. Ketosis can also aid in curbing hunger and maintaining muscle.

“New U Life vigorously defends our position against this overly broad claim, and we strongly believe in the differentiated clinical profile of KetoGen4. More importantly, we will continue to stay focused on changing lives and setting the standard for innovative and quality products,” said Alexy Goldstein, New U Life Founder and Formulator.

KetoGen4 made its debut at New U Life’s first-ever regional event which took place from May 3 to 4, 2019 in Dallas, TX. Over 2,000 distributors attended the event giving them the opportunity to receive product education to begin marketing KetoGen4.
