Natrol Breaks the brainSpeed Record at the 2005 Senior Olympics

Senior Athletes Get a Head Start with brainSpeed, the New Cognitive Health Supplement Designed to Enhance Mental Performance

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 6, 2005--The 2005 Senior Olympic Games in Pittsburgh is the arena for the world's finest Senior Olympians and their guests to experience Natrol® brainSpeed(TM), the new cognitive health supplement designed to help improve mental agility, promote attention and maintain memory. Targeting the cholinergic system -- the key to cognitive speed -- brainSpeed has been developed to take athletes to the next level by helping accelerate reaction time, improve decision making velocity, and promote mental acuity.(a)

The "senior-Xtreme" brainSpeed Squad will be on hand at the games June 9-12 where they will fan out around competition venues at Petersen Athletic Center and Carnegie Mellon University, encouraging Olympians and their guests to measure their mental agility by going to and taking the online brainSpeedOmeter(TM) test. As the first cognitive health supplement brand to offer individual verifiable results online, the brainSpeed test allows users to establish a mental processing speed benchmark, and then track their progress as they use the product.

Natrol CEO Elliott Balbert will also be on-hand to award Olympic medals to winning track and field athletes on June 11th at the Carnegie-Mellon University Athletic Center.

According to Phil Godfrey, Vice-President and COO of the National Senior Games Association, the producer of the 2005 Senior Olympics, "We are delighted to be embarking on this relationship between the NSGA and Natrol. Optimal brain health is vital to the performance of senior athletes both on and off the field, and I think brainSpeed and active seniors can be a winning combination."
