Natural Health Trends Corp. Celebrated the Grand Opening of Its Chinese E-Commerce Business

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - December 19, 2007) - Natural Health Trends Corp. (NASDAQ: BHIP), an international direct selling company, today announced that NHT Global (China) Commodities Co., Natural Health Trends Corp.'s wholly owned Chinese subsidiary, hosted a grand opening ceremony at its manufacturing facility in Zhuhai, China to celebrate the official launch of NHT Global (China) Commodities Co., Ltd. in China.

An estimated 1,500 people, including many local Zhuhai government officials, attended the events. The Grand Opening was a multi-event affair that included the grand opening ceremony, a dinner gala and training sessions for new members.

In September, 2007, the Company announced the launch of its Chinese consumer-based e-commerce business that is based on a buyers' club concept. Club members will enjoy volume discount when they sign up for auto-ship programs. The Company has developed a line of natural products that are produced by its factory based in Zhuhai China. The Chinese business model also represents a proactive and constructive step the Company takes to be in compliance with the Chinese rules and regulations.

Mr. Chris Sharng, President of Natural Health Trends Corp., who was hosting the Zhuhai Grand Opening, said: "We are appreciative of the dedication of our Greater Chinese leaders, who have stayed and worked with us through the last few years. They are highly motivated to kick off more activities again. This Zhuhai event will precede a series of training sessions to educate new and existing members about our products and business models. We are hopeful and optimistic of our prospect to resume growth in the Greater Chinese market."
