US patents are a grant of an exclusive property right to an inventor. They are granted or issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Intellectual resources are considered property so the Composition, (5 ingredients or proprietary blend), The Preparation (how the 5 ingredients are prepared), and the Methods (the way the product is made or administered) are all protected for the patent term, typically 20 years, from the original filing date. Protandim is protected from any other party duplicating its formula.
