Date:11/13/2008

RONKONKOMA, N.Y., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NBTY, Inc. (NYSE: NTY) (http://www.NBTY.com), a leading global manufacturer and marketer of nutritional supplements, today announced that Arthur Rudolph, its Founder and a member of its Board of Directors, has adopted a pre-arranged stock trading plan to sell a portion of his NBTY stock over time, as part of his long term strategy of asset diversification and liquidity. The stock trading plan was adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and NBTY's policies with respect to insider trading.

Rule 10b5-1 allows corporate officers and directors to adopt written, pre-arranged stock trading plans when they do not have material, non-public information. Using these plans, insiders can diversity their investment portfolios and can avoid concerns about whether they had material, non-public information when they sold their stock.

Under his Rule 10b5-1 plan, which is effective as of December 2, 2008, Mr. Rudolph may sell up to 240,000 shares of NBTY stock over a period of two years, starting in December 2008 and terminating in December 2010, subject to certain price targets and other restrictions. Mr. Rudolph's previously announced Rule 10b5-1 Trading Plan will terminate on December 1, 2008. No shares had been sold under the prior plan as of November 13, 2008.
