- The Legendary Mike Bridges, 51, Scores Big at Arnold Classic; Says

NutraCea's RiSolubles(R) Helped Him Train Better, Faster -

PHOENIX, March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NutraCea (OTC Bulletin Board: NTRZ), a world leader in stabilized rice bran (SRB), nutrient research and technology announced today that champion powerlifter Mike Bridges, who set a new International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) world record with a squat lift of 716 pounds in the 198-pound division at the 2008 Arnold Classic held in Columbus, Ohio last week, has credited NutraCea's RiSolubles(R) as the key to his success in training for the event. RiSolubles(R) is a highly nutritious rice-bran-derived nutritional supplement made by NutraCea. Bridges, who is 51 and not a paid spokesperson for the company, calls the product his "secret weapon."

"I've competed in powerlifting events for more than 25 years, and I never felt so fit before entering a competition," said Bridges, who also holds the all-time world record total for the 181-pound weight division set in Dayton, Ohio in 1982. "I typically train for at least 16 weeks, and I nearly did not compete in the Arnold Classic because I only had eight weeks to prepare. However, after adding RiSolubles to my daily training regimen, I was able to achieve peak performance in half the time. I was amazed at my accelerated recovery time and decreased down time. I wasn't sore, which is a big plus when you're training for any competitive event," added Bridges.

"RiSolubles is the most nutrient dense of our portfolio of rice-bran-based products," said Margie Adelman, Senior Vice President of NutraCea. "It's made from the water-soluble fraction of stabilized rice bran, and it's very rich in antioxidants, macro and micro nutrients and phytonutrients. These nutrients can be delivered effectively in a whole food matrix, which makes it rapidly available for the body to use to build lean muscle mass and provide sustained energy for superior workouts."

"RiSolubles helped me train harder and more efficiently, and it helped build lean body mass naturally," said Bridges. "I've consumed many different products over the years, and I am convinced that adding RiSolubles to my morning shake made all the difference and gave me the competitive edge I needed to set the new world record at the Arnold Classic. I highly recommend it to any competitive athlete."

"We're very proud of Mike Bridges and his unprecedented achievement at the Arnold Classic, and we're delighted that he is sharing his training secrets with other athletes so they, too, can experience a nutritional boost from RiSolubles," said Kody Newland, Senior Vice President of Sales at NutraCea.

NutraCea will be showcasing the RiSolubles product at the Natural Products Expo this weekend in Anaheim, California at booth #867. For more information on RiSolubles, log on to http://www.nutracea.com
