Crampamine Helps Runners Reach the Finish Line

Boston Marathon Attendees Get First Glimpse of New Over-the-Counter Muscle Cramp Reliever

RENO, Nev. (April 9, 2007) — As summertime approaches, many Americans will be increasing their activity levels and incorporating more exercise into their everyday lives. Whether someone exercises occasionally or is a serious athlete, muscle cramps are a common health concern.

To address this problem, Reno, Nev.-based American Bioceuticals is introducing a new oral, over-the-counter muscle cramp product called CrampamineTM. Participants of the Boston Marathon's John Hancock Sports & Fitness Expo can get a first glimpse and free trial of Crampamine by visiting the Expo's Natural Athlete information section April 13-15. The product will then be available on shelves at CVS/ pharmacy stores nationwide in May.

"Crampamine offers an effective, alternative treatment for muscle cramps. It's ideal for avid athletes, such as marathon runners, and those who simply suffer from chronic muscle cramps," said Michael Nelson, president of American Bioceuticals. "Crampamine is an excellent choice in the treatment of this painful condition."

In addition to Crampamine, American Bioceuticals' product line includes three other oral, over-the-counter products: LipreveTM, for cold sore relief; OrulTM, for canker sore treatment; and ZostamineTM, for treatment of shingles.

In addition to the Boston Marathon, information and samples of Crampamine will be featured at the following pre-marathon expos throughout 2007:
- Festival 500 Half Marathon, Indianapolis, May 3-4
- Peachtree Road Race 10K, Atlanta, July 2-3
- Chicago Marathon, October 5-6
- Marine Corps Marathon, Washington, D.C., October 26-27
