Dr. Herbert Nagasawa's RiboCeine Technology Now Fully Patented and Assigned to Max International
Max International is proud to officially announce that RiboCeine, the proprietary technology developed by Dr. Herbert Nagasawa and his team of scientific researchers, is now fully patented by the U.S. Patent Office. As per U.S. law, the patent has been granted to Dr. Nagasawa, who has assigned it to Max International. This means that the exclusive ownership and distribution rights for RiboCeine belong with Max International and our Associates. No other company or individual outside of Max International and our Associates may make, use, offer for sale, or sell products containing RiboCeine.
The acquisition of the patent demonstrates our commitment to developing real health breakthroughs backed by scientific research. The granting of this patent is a recognition of RiboCeine's innovative and unique design. When he learned about the granting of the patent, Co-CEO, Dave Bagley stated, "I have never seen a company more focused on scientific development than Max International. Through Dr. Nagasawa's efforts, the company has created an innovative line of supplements that help to promote a healthy lifestyle."
