Schiff(R) Enhances Its Acidophilus and Melatonin Supplements

SALT LAKE CITY, July 17, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Schiff Nutrition Group, Inc. (WNI) , one of America's most respected natural supplement companies, is introducing product improvements on its current Schiff Probiotic Acidophilus and Schiff Melatonin:

* New Schiff Probiotic Acidophilus has been redesigned into smaller,
easy-to-swallow tablets with 1 billion live cells guaranteed through
the life of the product. The active ingredient in the Schiff formula
is acidophilus, a probiotic or good bacteria that promotes a healthy
balance of friendly bacteria in the digestive tract and is primarily
taken to aid digestion. Schiff Probiotic Acidophilus is available to
consumers at grocery stores, mass retailers and drug stores nationwide
in 100-count and 250-count bottles.

* New Schiff Melatonin Plus now contains theanine, an ingredient that
promotes stress relief and a more restful night's sleep. Theanine is
an amino acid naturally found in green tea that historically has been
used as a relaxing agent. It works well in combination with
melatonin, an ingredient that helps promote normal sleep patterns.
Schiff Melatonin Plus is available to consumers at grocery stores,
mass retailers and drug stores nationwide in 120-count and 180-count
