CARLSBAD, Calif., June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Natural Alternatives International, Inc. ("NAI") (NASDAQ:NAII), a leading formulator, manufacturer and marketer of customized nutritional supplements, announced today that it has extended to 2026 its worldwide license agreement directed to NAI's CarnoSyn® beta-alanine patent and trademark estate with Nutrabolt, LLC. Nutrabolt is the fastest growing nutritional life science company and creator of Cellucor® C4 products, the #1 pre-workout product offering in the market. The companies are expanding their business relationship to collaborate in the area of sports nutrition and other key fields of growth related to CarnoSyn® beta-alanine. NAI owns an extensive global IP portfolio covering its CarnoSyn® beta-alanine and SR CarnoSyn® products and has invested significant monies funding research and brand awareness around the world. Nutrabolt is an industry leader in the area of sports nutrition. Its predominance in the congested, pre-workout market is unrivaled and offers consumers the most effective "best in class" products. Nutrabolt's investment in sports nutrition has led to significant business growth and expansion, including the recent acquisition of Scivation Nutrition.
NAI also announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has allowed a new patent application directed to a broad range of improved methods of beta-alanine intake, targeting such benefits as delaying muscle fatigue, increasing anaerobic capacity, increasing muscle strength and increasing muscle endurance. This new intellectual property significantly lengthened the patent coverage for CarnoSyn® beta-alanine. Nutrabolt, given its market dominance and view of the future of nutrition, was a natural business partner for NAI. After months of substantive discussions regarding NAI's intellectual property and the future vision of nutrition in sports and other fields, the parties agreed to combine their efforts to lead the market in future research, development and sales of products using NAI's patented and trademarked CarnoSyn® beta-alanine.
Mark A. LeDoux, NAI's CEO and Chairman of the Board, said that "NAI is very excited by the execution of this agreement with Nutrabolt extending its worldwide license to our CarnoSyn® patent and trademark rights. The recent addition of NAI's new patent, directed to a broad range of improved methods of beta-alanine intake, is the future of beta-alanine in sports nutrition." LeDoux went on to say that "during our meetings with Nutrabolt executives and its research team, we explored other fields of use for CarnoSyn® that NAI holds patent rights to uses beyond sports nutrition and for which it continues to explore through funded research around the world. The opportunity to work with a market leader like Nutrabolt related to CarnoSyn® was an easy decision for us."
