KULA, MAUI, Hawaii, April 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bioponic Phytoceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BPYT) ("Bioponic" or "the Company") today announced that Dr. Barbara Anne Nabrit-Stephens, MD, MBA, FAAP has joined the Company's Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Nabrit-Stephens is a board-certified pediatrician with over 30 years of health care experience. As a scientific advisor, Dr. Nabrit-Stephens will help validate and formulate Bioponic's strategies to market its all-natural therapeutic products, including Curecumin(TM) and Curmisinin(TM).

"We are honored to welcome Dr. Nabrit-Stephens to our Scientific Advisory Board. Dr. Nabrit-Stephens' in-depth experience as both a clinician and health care administrator is a true asset to our organization," said Steven M. Schorr, Chairman and CEO of Bioponic. "Testing and research programs for Alzheimer's applications for Curecumin(TM) and distribution of Curmisinin(TM) to treat the deadly cerebra malaria, which kills over 2 million children in Sub-Saharan Africa, are the first projects Dr. Nabrit-Stephens will be involved in. She is also ideally suited to advise us on our newest product line, Gentle Mother, specifically for the needs of newborns and infants."

Dr. Nabrit-Stephens said, "I've always been attracted to those companies who focus on providing pro-active healthcare solutions, especially to those populations at-risk. Bioponic's work in bringing all-natural treatments to control devastating malaria in Africa is very impressive. I believe Bioponic's Bioresonant formulations could potentially represent a breakthrough in the treatment of epidemic disease. I am intrigued to discover more about the Company and their product lines, and look forward to our ongoing collaboration."

Dr. Nabrit-Stephens earned her medical degree from Tufts University in 1976, her BA from Harvard University in 1972, and her MBA from the University of Tennessee in 1998.
