Martin Nutraceuticals Gaining Momentum Going Into Second Quarter 2006

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2006 -- Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. (OTC: MNCL), the developer of Arthrizyme™, a proven effective natural arthritis treatment, today announced dramatic sales growth over 2005.

The Company made excellent strategic progress across several fronts during the past two quarters. Ending Q4, the Company added new accounts with Racine Pharmacies and McMahon Pharmaceutical Distributors. In the first quarter 2006, the Company successfully added internet sales of its products via e-commence direct from their website: www.martinnutra.com/store.htm.

Additionally, Martin entered into an agreement with TVA to further promote Martin Nutraceuticals via its infomercial. Dr. Martin's radio show "Ask the Doctor" rapidly increased in popularity, and the Company just recently announced their products listing with McKesson Pharmaceutical, the largest distributor of pharmaceuticals in the US. Total revenues for the first quarter 2006 were approximately an 82% increase from the previous quarter. New accounts and distribution agreements contributed to revenue growth.

President of Martin Neutracuiticals Inc., Harvey Panesar, remarked, "Momentum has increased throughout the past year; however our first quarter performance was exceptionally strong, with existing customers increasing their order volumes and a growing number of new retail customers and wholesale distributors significantly improving sales."

Mr. Panesar went on to say, "While sales from existing clients are expected to continue to grow throughout the second quarter, additional retailers and distributors added to the Martin Nutraceutical family should appreciably increase our sales and market penetration. We anticipate another tremendous quarter reflecting the added accounts with key retailers and distributors, which should lead to significant long-term and profitable relationships."
