Martin Nutraceuticals Products May Help the Two Million U.S. Teens Who Are Pre-Diabetic

RENO, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 21, 2006 -- Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MNCL) re-affirms previous studies showing that using Martin's products may act as a preventative measure against certain epidemics that are on the rise, including the latest: "Two million U.S. teens are Pre-Diabetic."

According to November's (2005) Pediatrics, "Roughly 2 million U.S. children ages 12-19 have a pre-diabetic condition linked to obesity and inactivity that puts them at risk for full blown diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Nearly 21 million Americans have diabetes, which is up substantially from the 14% since 2002. Researchers from the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health examined the prevalence of abnormally high blood sugar levels after several hours without eating.

Affected adolescents were more likely than those with normal fasting glucose measurements to have other symptoms suggesting they might be on the road to heart problems. Average levels of bad cholesterol and blood fats called triglycerides were higher in youngsters who had the pre-diabetic condition."

"The numbers are definitely concerning," says Dr. A.W. Martin, Director of Research and Development for Martin Nutraceuticals Inc. "These young people have to be educated quickly in adapting a healthy lifestyle. Obviously a proper diet and a regular exercise program are essential, but I'm also recommending as a preventative measure, our product Oxygenol™, which has a powerful antioxidant. Oxygenol™ reduces vascular fragility to which diabetics are prone. Its unique and protective effect on capillaries extends even to the fragile capillaries of the eyes."
