Embria's EpiCor Makes International Debut

Immune Health Ingredient Well-Received at VitaFoods, International Orthomolecular and FCE Pharma Conferences

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, June 19, 2006 --- Embria(tm) Health Sciences, manufacturer of natural ingredients for use in high-quality, human nutritional products, announced today the successful launch of its high-metabolite immunogen ingredient EpiCor(tm) within the European Union and Brazil. Embria's presence at last month's VitaFoods International Tradeshow and Conference in Geneva, and the International Orthomolecular Conference and FCE Pharma Show, both in Brazil, garnered interest from worldwide manufacturers of dietary supplements and functional foods.

Embria's South American international distributor, Galena Química e Farmacêutica, Ltda. will distribute EpiCor to pharmaceutical and nutraceutical outlets throughout Brazil. Livingstone, Scott
(Healthcare) & Co., Ltd. will exclusively supply manufacturers in Spain and the United Kingdom with EpiCor, as well as distribute it throughout the European Union.

"We are pleased that EpiCor's success at these prestigious international conferences has paralleled the immense interest it has received within the U.S.," said Embria Health Sciences president, Paul Faganel. "As part of Embria's overall international growth strategy, we will continue to bring EpiCor into trade venues worldwide."

EpiCor is an all-natural, high-metabolite immunogen that nourishes the body's immune system to strengthen resistance and maintain wellness. It is manufactured through a proprietary, multi-stage fermentation and drying process called MetaGen4(tm), which produces vital metabolites that deliver nutritional benefits and support increased bioavailability. EpiCor is self-determined GRAS status and is safe for everyday use.
Embria Health Sciences, www.embriahealth.com, combines science and nature to bring high-quality, research-based natural ingredients to the global human nutrition market.

Currently based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Embria will break ground on a $10 million headquarter facility in Ankeny, Iowa, in late-2006. In addition to being named one of Nutraceuticals World's 2006 "Companies to Watch," Embria holds Nutrition Business Journal's 2005 product merit award for its selenium ingredient, eXselen.
