Natural Alternatives International, Inc. Announces Filing of Patent Infringement Lawsuit

SAN MARCOS, Calif., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI")(Nasdaq: NAII), today announced that it has filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, accusing Vital Pharmaceutical, Inc. ("VPX") and DNP International Co., Inc. of infringing patents exclusively licensed to NAI relating to its CarnoSyn® beta-alanine. NAI has also asserted claims for unfair competition and false marking against one or both of the companies in the lawsuit.

CarnoSyn® is a proprietary, patented form of beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring beta amino acid produced in muscle tissue as a component of carnosine. 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® beta-alanine increases muscle tissue levels of carnosine, to provide cellular buffering for significant performance and recovery improvement.
