Intelligent Living Inc. (ILIV) Completes Asset Purchase of Health and Beyond LLC and the drlarrydirect.com Website

Added Capabilities Give ILIV eCommerce and Wellness Opportunities in Newly Structured Health and Beyond Nutra Company Inc. Subsidiary

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 9, 2014) - Intelligent Living Inc. (OTCQB: ILIV) has completed its asset purchase of Health and Beyond LLC and its website http://drlarrydirect.com -- a leading eCommerce retailer of health, wellness and alternative formulas and the creator and vendor of the Bio-Nutritional Evaluation. The asset purchase strengthens ILIV's corporate core and provides a solid revenue stream in wellness products and services.

Frost and Sullivan report that nutraceuticals are products that provide health and medicinal benefits, including the prevention and treatment of diseases in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foodstuff. They further that by saying that nutraceuticals are particularly of interest to the present generation because they have the potential to substantially reduce the expensive, high-tech, disease treatment approaches presently being employed in Western healthcare. Primarily used in functional foods and dietary supplements, nutraceutical ingredients are natural bioactive, chemical compounds that have health promoting, disease preventing or medicinal properties.

Dr. Larry LeGunn, Founder of Health and Beyond, said "With the increase in life expectancy and subsequent increase in lifestyle diseases, nutraceuticals have emerged as a necessity for consumers, especially in developed markets like the US. Nutraceuticals are often defined as any food or part thereof which provides health benefits including prevention or treatment of disease. This definition has now broadened to include functional ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and probiotics etc. Our product line under the Health and Beyond label has been created with my 40 years of practice knowledge to create the ultimate health and wellness products for our customers. Joining Josh, Victoria and Paul in Intelligent Living is the next step in our evolution. I am very excited and look forward to building a robust eHealth business with them."

According to a Bourne Partners analyst report, the global market for nutraceuticals and wellness products reached $142.1 billion in 2011 and is expected to be $250 billion by 2018. The report went on to say "Over the last three years, publicly traded nutraceutical companies have outpaced both the S&P 500 and the S&P Healthcare Sector as a whole, most notably during the 2011 and early 2012 time period."

"In further commitment to our strategic roadmap and our commitment to building some revenue and shareholder value we are ecstatic to announce the completion of this asset purchase.
