ACCEL GEL Named Official Sponsor of the 2011 SunTrust Richmond Marathon for the Second Year

ENDUROX R4 Also Named Official Recovery Drink

MATAWAN, NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2011) - The SunTrust Richmond Marathon and PacificHealth Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: PHLI), a leading sports nutrition company and manufacturer of the patented 4:1 carbohydrate to protein formula in ACCELERADE, ENDUROX R4®, and ACCEL GEL®, announced that ACCEL GEL has been named the official gel sponsor of the 2011 SunTrust Richmond Marathon.

This is the second year in a row that the SunTrust Richmond Marathon and PacificHealth Laboratories have teamed up for the event. It will provide extensive sampling and selling exposure for ACCEL GEL, the only gel with the 4:1 carb to ratio protein. On race day, November 12, 2011, assorted gels (vanilla, chocolate, and citrus orange) will be available at Miles 14 and 21 to the over 7,500 participants on course to help them cross the finish line. PacificHealth Labs' recovery drink, ENDUROX R4, is also the official recovery drink and will be available to runners when they complete the course. ENDUROX R4 contains the patented 4:1 ratio of carbs to protein that helps increase glycogen replenishment and decrease muscle damage, and ultimately helps runners recover faster.

"We are very pleased with the continued association with the SunTrust Richmond Marathon," stated Fred Duffner, President and CEO of PacificHealth Labs. "This venue is one of the top draws in the fall season and supports our focus on our core business and expanding the awareness of the benefits of PacificHealth products on performance and recovery."
