Natural Alternatives International, Inc. Announces Carnosyn(R) Beta-Alanine Licensing Agreement
Date:3/9/2009

SAN MARCOS, Calif., March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading formulator and manufacturer of customized nutritional supplements, and Compound Solutions, Inc. ("CSI"), a science and marketing based distributor of raw materials to the sports nutrition, dietary supplement, food, pharmaceutical and personal care industries, today jointly announced their licensing agreement of the patented Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine to further develop its use in the dynamic human performance product market. CSI is an importer and distributor of bulk beta-alanine. Under the license agreement, CSI's customers will receive a sublicense of certain of NAI's rights to the use, manufacture and sale of products incorporating the patented Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine. CSI will continue to work with manufacturers of human performance products to drive sales of products with the addition of Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine. NAI also plans to focus on the development and production of all types of dosage form products using Carnosyn(R). Tablets, two piece capsules and powders in many types of packaging are expected to be formulated and manufactured at NAI's certified manufacturing facilities in both Vista, CA and Lugano, Switzerland.

Barry Titlow, Chief Executive Officer of CSI, stated: "We are very excited about our relationship with NAI. We believe the science behind Carnosyn(R) is so well documented our clients will be able to reference the studies with total confidence. We intend to continue to ensure superior quality of the bulk beta-alanine and the continuity of the supply chain. We are inspired by the products now on the market that contain Carnosyn(R) and look forward to the future development of this market."

Mark LeDoux, Chief Executive Officer of NAI added: "We are very pleased to announce this affiliation because of our longstanding relationship with Barry Titlow and CSI. We plan to aggressively defend our patent estate associated with Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine, which we believe is based on unsurpassed scientific and intellectual effort and represents a dynamic estate of intellectual property deserving of commercialization without interference. We believe Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine is truly a breakthrough in performance nutrition. It lends itself well to presentations to consumers in capsule, tablet and compounded form with all sorts of supplement ingredients. We believe there is a large and growing marketplace for Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine and are ready to assist those willing to use the benefits of the patent estate in a lawful manner."

The recognition of beta-alanine by athletes of all levels has been underscored by increasing sales of performance products containing Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine. Controlled studies have demonstrated that carnosine is a highly effective buffer to slow the acidic buildup in exercise stressed muscle, which otherwise could lead to shortened workouts and non-optimal competitive performance. Carnosine synthesis in the body is limited by the availability of beta-alanine. As confirmed in multiple studies, orally delivered Carnosyn(R) beta-alanine increases muscle tissue levels of carnosine, to provide cellular buffering for significant performance and recovery improvement.

CSI provides raw materials from highly qualified manufacturers to the sports nutrition, dietary supplement, food, pharmaceutical and personal care industries. CSI is involved from concept presentation, to process and dosage improvements, to marketing programs for its clients.
