CEDAR KNOLLS, NJ--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2013) - MYOS Corporation (OTCQB: MYOS), a company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of products that improve human muscle health and performance, today announced that it has been selected for membership in the prestigious Deutsches Institut fur Lebensmitteltechnik e.V. ("DIL") -- the German Institute for Food Technologies.

DIL's current membership is comprised of only 140 distinguished companies including global industry leaders such as H.J. Heinz, Mars, Nestlé, Pepsi, General Mills, Con Agra, and Simplot. DIL is one of the world's finest research facilities developing and implementing new food and nutritional technologies. DIL's stated mission is to develop, "Knowledge for Superior Foods."

MYOS intends to leverage its muscle health vision by working with a global authority on product innovation, ingredient sourcing and supply chain management as well as specialized research and development. DIL's renowned scientists facilitate proactive collaboration with and amongst its member companies to create value. As a result, young companies such as MYOS are able to gain direct access to expertise, resources, economies of scale and markets otherwise enjoyed only by the largest global food companies.

"MYOS has long recognized that the convergence between pharmaceutical products, vitamins, dietary supplements and functional foods is accelerating," said Peter Levy, MYOS President and Chief Operating Officer. "With our intellectual property portfolio at the center of the emerging field of muscle health, we believe MYOS is well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity. Baby boomers increasingly need to prevent or delay age-related muscle loss, a condition known as sarcopenia, as well as manage muscle health related aspects of many chronic illnesses including cancer, chronic neurological disease and other serious medical conditions. MYOS' innovative approach aligns with DIL's commitment to develop better foods including functional foods and nutraceutical products. We are honored to be one of only a dozen U.S. members of DIL."

The Company's first commercial product MYO-X, powered by MYO-T12, is distributed by Maximum Human Performance (MHP) and is currently available on popular e-tailer websites including www.mhpstrong.com, www.bodybuilding.com and in specialty retailers including GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and others. MYOS believes that MYO-X, as well as future products it envisions, will redefine existing standards for muscle health.
