Natural Alternatives International Awarded GMP Registration

SAN MARCOS, Calif., Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ --
Natural Alternatives International ("NAI"), Inc. (Nasdaq: NAII), a leading
formulator and manufacturer of customized nutritional supplements announced
today that it has been awarded Good Manufacturing Practices ("GMP")
registration by NSF International ("NSF") through the NSF Dietary Supplements
Certification Program.

The NSF Dietary Supplements Certification Program provides manufacturers a
means to become independently registered as conforming to GMP requirements.
GMP requirements are regulatory requirements that provide guidelines for
necessary processes, procedures and documentation to assure the product
produced has the identity, strength, composition, quality and purity it is
represented to possess. NSF conducted extensive plant audits at the NAI
facilities in San Marcos and Vista, California to verify NAI's compliance with
GMP. NAI will undergo periodic audits to maintain this registration. Contract
manufacturers of dietary supplements that comply with GMP requirements are
listed on the NSF web site. NAI's listing can be viewed at:

Mark LeDoux, NAI Chairman and CEO, said, "We are thrilled with this
registration and with NSF's independent validation of our compliance with Good
Manufacturing Practices. Our commitment to quality as evidenced by the NSF
registration truly segregates NAI from many other companies in our industry.
At NAI quality is part of the process as well as the finished product."

"NAI's GMP registration demonstrates their continued commitment to quality
and to customer satisfaction," said Ray Jaglowski, NSF Vice President, New
Business Development. "I would like to congratulate NAI on becoming one of the
first companies to receive GMP registration."

Mr. LeDoux also said, "In addition to our GMP registration with NSF, NAI
has been certified by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia
("TGA") for a number of years. The combined approval of NSF and TGA further
assures our customers of a continuing commitment to quality and independent
verification of our processes."
