Nutra Pharma Announces First Manufacturing Release of Nyloxin Rx, a Prescription Treatment for Chronic Pain

Nutra Pharma Has Announced That It Has Completed the First Production Run of Its Prescription Pain Drug, Nyloxin Rx, and Has Successfully Released It for Initial Marketing-Related Distribution

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  Nutra Pharma Corp. (OTCBB: NPHC), a biotechnology company that is developing treatments for Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN), HIV and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), has announced today that it has completed manufacturing the first batch of its prescription pain reliever, Nyloxin Rx, and has successfully released it for initial marketing-related distribution within the United States.

"We are pleased to be announcing the rollout of the Company's first prescription drug, Nyloxin Rx," commented Rik J Deitsch, Chairman and CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. "As we move forward with the launch of Nyloxin Rx, we continue to seek partnerships with established U.S. and international distributors to assist us with ongoing marketing to physician offices, hospitals and medical clinics," he added.

Nyloxin Rx is a prescription pain reliever clinically proven to treat Stage 3 (severe) chronic pain. Unlike Stage 2 pain, which interferes with both work and sleep, Nyloxin Rx is aimed at treating the most severe pain that inhibits one's ability to fully function.

The drug, which was developed by Nutra Pharma's wholly-owned drug discovery subsidiary, ReceptoPharm, will be available as an oral spray for treating angina pectoris, angina faucium, back pain, headaches, joint pain, migraines, neck pain, neuralgia, ovarian pain, and painful periods and as a topical gel for treating joint pain and pain associated with repetitive stress and arthritis.

Currently, physicians can request samples of Nyloxin Rx by visiting the Healthcare Providers section of the Nyloxin website:
