GlucoBurst™ Glucose Tablets Introduced in Recognition of ADA American Diabetes Alert® Day

GORDONSVILLE, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 27, 2007 -- PBM Products, LLC, maker of the GlucoBurst line of diabetes products, is introducing GlucoBurst Glucose Tablets in recognition of the American Diabetes Association's 19th annual American Diabetes Alert® Day. Today, the ADA is spreading the word about the seriousness of diabetes, particularly when diabetes is left undiagnosed or untreated.

"The ADA is doing a tremendous job in sending this country a diabetes wake-up call," said PBM CEO Paul B. Manning. "As a corporate citizen, PBM supports related research and contributes a portion of the sale of our diabetes consumer offerings to this cause."

The ADA recommends carrying something containing 15 grams of glucose at all times in order to treat hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) reactions. Even though hypoglycemic reactions can occur suddenly, glucose levels can be brought back to normal by eating or drinking carbohydrates.

GlucoBurst Glucose Tablets are specially designed for people with diabetes and/or mild hypoglycemia and complement GlucoBurst® Glucose Gel, which delivers 15 grams of liquid glucose. Unlike most other glucose tablets that offer only four grams of glucose, GlucoBurst Glucose Tablets deliver five grams of glucose in nine-count and 24-count sizes. Offered in Sour Apple and Sour Cherry flavors, just three tablets provide the ADA-recommended 15 grams of glucose.

"In my opinion, these are the best tasting tablets on the market," added Manning. "This is another example of how PBM continues to develop innovative products for people with diabetes."

In 2006, PBM introduced GlucoBurst Diabetic Drink to help people better manage diabetes. The drink provides unique nutrition:

--  Omega-3 DHA, L-Arginine, and folic acid to help support circulatory
    health
--  Beta-Carotene to help Support eye health
--  No added sugar
    
GlucoBurst products are available at leading retail locations nationwide, including Walgreens®, Target®, Meijer®, and Kroger® stores. For more information, visit www.glucoburst.com. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of GlucoBurst products will be donated to diabetes research.
