Future Science

The medical and research community states that Dr. Allen's science and technology is "Twenty years ahead of everyone else."

Known in the industry for her bold stance of setting high standards in scientific accuracy, Dr. Allen went so far as to correct Discover magazine, whose educational publication is considered the gold standard in science. Her statement on quaternary saturated amines prompted a correction by Discover.

For over twenty years, Dr. Allen had warned of the dangers of using L-arginine without a Blind Amino Acid Rider. Her stance on L-arginine was validated in January 2006, when the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published the Johns Hopkins clinical trial on oral L-arginine, in which L-arginine was shown to cause death in a significant segment of the subjects, which prompted the close of the clinical trial.

As a result of her long-term research on the amino acid L-arginine, the medical and scientific community refered to Dr. Allen as the Leader in L-Arginine Biochemistry, and the Queen of Arginine.

When Dr. Allen was asked by the media how she is able to stay on the leading edge of future-science, she replied:

“Part science, part skill, and part intuition. I also credit my savant-dyslexia. A dyslexic’s nonlinear images allows them to think much more quickly and multi-dimensionally. Albert Einstein was savant-dyslexic. Einstein was able to develop his theory of relativity due to his dyslexic properties of creativity and ability to make intuitive leaps. Intuitive leaps allow me to ignore conventional science and make theoretical bonds with nutritional concepts. The key then, is to scientifically prove these concepts.”

As a tribute to Einstein, in 1983 Dr. Allen named her L-Arginine Isoform Pathway L-Arginine M².

American Diabetes Association
Recognizes Benefits of
The Glycemic Index

The American Diabetes Association (July 2008) embraced the results of a huge clinical trial at Harvard School of Public Health, and the benefits of the glycemic index.

In a study of more than 85,000 people over a 20-year period, the Glycemic Index was validated in preventing Type 2 diabetes and obesity.
Researchers concluded that:
Tracked for over 2 decades, “Women had a 250 percent higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes if they consistently ate foods high in Glycemic Load, like sugar-sweetened fruit juice, refined sugary cereal, and bread.”
“Being carb smart helps keep diabetes at bay”

Childhood Obesity Epidemic

The number of overweight children aged 6-11 has more than doubled in the past 20 years. Current estimates show that 32 percent of U.S. children are overweight, while 16 percent are obese.

Parents are struggling to control and prevent their children from becoming yet another statistic in the obesity/diabetes epidemic.

Researchers are now predicting that one of every two children will develop Type 2 diabetes because of excess weight, which raises the probability that they will die as much as 20 years younger than their parents.

Children in the United States are completely surrounded by fattening foods and beverages. Even infant formulas contain added sugar, so from birth, children are ingesting ingredients that increase the size of fat cells and trigger fat cells to increase in number.

The creation of an abundance of fat cells in children makes it almost impossible for that child to maintain normal weight or to lose weight as the child grows. By age 18, the stage has already been set for a child to be slim or obese.


Researcher and Scientist, Dr. Ann de Wees Allen® has received a Patent on the World's First Fat-Burning Coffee.

Dr. Allen started working on a new invention for a mechanism which switched any form of plain coffee to a Fat-Burning Coffee in 1983.

She subsequently filed a patent on Fat-Burning Coffee, Fat-Burning Tea, Fat-Burning Water, and numerous other fat-burning products, and was issued a full U.S. patent. Dr. Allen's patent attorney is now the Director of the United States Patent & Trademark Office(

Dr. Allen has licensed her Fat-Burning Coffee and Fat-Burning Tea to various companies since the 1980's, which has generated multi-millions of dollars in sales.

Her Fat-Burning Coffee was named Breakthrough Product of the Year by Success Magazine and was featured on the cover of the Wall Street Journal for having generated over $$ 300 Million Dollars - and that was before her Fat-Burning Coffee really took off.

Dr. Allen holds the exclusive manufacturing rights to her Proprietary coffee and tea compound which is the key to making safe and effective Fat-Burning products, as well as legal claims on Fat-Burning Coffee or Tea.

Proprietary Trade Secrets, unlike patents, trademarks and copyrights, are defined and governed by individual state law and are recognized in every U.S. state. This allows inventors, like Dr. Allen, to defend and protect their Proprietary Trade Secrets.

Dr. Allen's Proprietary Trade Secrets, related to Fat-Burning Coffee, have never been revealed, thus assuring that the original and authentic Fat-Burning Coffee remains a Proprietary Trade Secret.

UPDATE: Dr. Allen continues to successfully license her Fat-Burning technology to the Nutraceutical industry, and is currently working on a new methodology in coffee research. She will have Board Approved Human In Vivo Clinical Trials completed featuring this new technology in 2014.

Blood Brain Barrier

Nanotechnology & the
Blood-Brain-Barrier Nanoparticle Paths of Entry

In its neuroprotective role, the blood-brain-barrier (BBB) blocks agents from entering the brain.

This protective mechanism has been in place since man first walked the earth. If this mechanism was not in place, the brain would self-destruct within a few weeks, as invaders, including natural sugars, foods, and amino acids, would cause a biochemical implosion capable of killing the host (the human body).
