Nutra Pharma Announces Launch of Pet Pain-Away for Companion Animals

Nutra Pharma Is Announcing the Launch of Their New Homeopathic Formula for the Treatment of Chronic Pain in Companion Animals, Pet Pain-Away

CORAL SPRINGS, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 24, 2013) - Nutra Pharma Corporation (OTCQB: NPHC), a biotechnology company that is developing treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) and Pain, announced today that they are in the process of launching the newest addition to their line of homeopathic treatments for chronic pain, Pet Pain-Away.

Pet Pain-Away is a homeopathic, non-narcotic, non-addictive, over-the-counter pain reliever. The product is primarily aimed at treating moderate to severe chronic pain in companion animals. It is specifically indicated to treat pain from hip dysplasia, arthritis pain, joint pain, and general chronic pain in dogs, cats and horses. Specialized proteins in Pet Pain-Away block the action of acetylcholine, a major stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system and activator of the inflammatory pathways. As a result, the pain and inflammation pathways are temporarily shut off.

"Most of the pain-relieving drugs currently available for both the human and animal markets have severe side effects that may include gastrointestinal difficulties, kidney issues and narcotic problem," commented Rik J Deitsch, CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. "Pet Pain-Away is a revolutionary new product that promises to change the way we deal with pet pain. It is the culmination of years of scientific research coupled with proven ancient Chinese medicine and homeopathic practices to produce a single sensible solution to pain in pets," he continued. "We also know that Americans are apt to spend more on their pets than themselves, especially in indications of comfort and pain," he concluded.

According to The Humane Society there are 75 million dog owners and 85 million cat owners in the US. These companion animals are as susceptible as humans to ailments that require pain-relieving solutions. The total market for companion animals in the US reached an estimated $47.7 billion in 2010, up from $28.5 billion in 2001 (up 167%). Of these expenditures, over $11 billion was spent on medication for the animals. Additionally, a 2009 survey conducted by Virbac Pharmaceuticals puts the annual US market for companion animal pain relievers at more than $250 million.
