Naturade Receives Court Approval for Reorganization Plan

BREA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 6, 2007 -- Naturade, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: NRDCQ) announced today that its plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 has been approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court. The reorganization plan received virtually unanimous support from the Company's creditors and shareholders, as well as strong support from Naturade's lenders and the Company's Creditor Committee. The Company expects to emerge from Chapter 11 before the end of March 2007 and will remain a fully reporting publicly traded company.

The reorganization plan provides for a recapitalization of the Company with Naturade's controlling shareholder, Redux Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RDXH) providing a substantial cash infusion to meet Naturade's future working capital needs. In addition to a comprehensive debt restructuring, the reorganization plan features an equity allocation rarely observed in companies emerging from bankruptcy. Of note, the plan allows for the retention of an equity interest by existing shareholders in the Company.

"The reorganization process works," stated CEO Richard Munro, an experienced reorganization specialist. "Naturade will emerge from Chapter 11 as a stronger, more financially sound business. With the recapitalization of Naturade, we will have the financial resources to meet the growing demands of consumers for natural and health food products. Naturade has a strong legacy built over 8 decades of product innovation in consumer nutritional supplements and was in the health food business long before the term 'health food' was even invented."

"We strive to continually enhance our reputation as an outstanding supplier of natural nutritional supplements and wellness products, and to maintain the support of our vendors and customers," concluded Munro. "We plan to launch innovative new products in 2007 and beyond to build on our consumer brand strengths and highly valued retailer relationships."
