Nutra Pharma is announcing the execution of a Letter of Intent for a $4 Million financing to fund a joint venture for the marketing and distribution of the Company’s Over-the-Counter products.
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE -- Nutra Pharma Corporation (OTC:NPHC), a biotechnology company marketing Nyloxin® and Pet Pain-Away™ in the over-the-counter (OTC) pain management market and which is also developing treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) and Pain, announced today that they had signed a definitive Letter of Intent for a $4 Million financing that will fund a subsidiary joint venture.
JAH Neal Holdings LLC will act as the minority Joint Venture (JV) partner with a 49% stake in the subsidiary for their $4 million investment. Nutra Pharma will maintain a 51% stake in the venture and will contribute an exclusive license for all of their Over-the-Counter (OTC) products, which currently includes: Nyloxin®, Pet Pain-Away™ and Luxury Feet. The stakeholders will jointly manage the JV.
“We’ve been working diligently to increase the exposure, sales and distribution of our OTC product line,” commented Rik J Deitsch, CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. "The one thing that we were missing was a large cash infusion to be able to scale up manufacturing and market these products effectively. With the $4 million coming into the JV, we have a definitive plan to roll out national distribution that includes online, direct to consumer and retail sales," he continued. "With the nation focused on the treatment of chronic pain and the reduction of opiate use, we believe that our opioid-free solutions, including Nyloxin and Pet Pain-Away, will be the products of choice for chronic pain with the right marketing and consumer education," he concluded.
Nyloxin® is a safe, non-narcotic, and non-addictive Homeopathic pain reliever clinically proven to treat moderate to severe chronic pain while not impairing cognitive function. Nyloxin® offers several benefits as pain relievers and anti-inflammatory agents. With increasing concern about consumers using opioid and acetaminophen-based pain relievers, Nyloxin® offers an opioid-free alternative that does not rely on opiates or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, otherwise known as NSAIDs, for their pain relieving effects. Nyloxin® has a well-defined safety profile. Since the early 1930s, the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), Asian cobra venom, has been studied in more than 46 human clinical studies.
Pet Pain-Away™ is a homeopathic, non-narcotic, non-addictive, over-the-counter pain reliever. The product is primarily aimed at treating moderate to severe chronic pain in companion animals. It is specifically indicated to treat pain from hip dysplasia, arthritis pain, joint pain, and general chronic pain in dogs and cats. Specialized proteins in Pet Pain-Away™ block the action of acetylcholine, a major stimulating neurotransmitter in the nervous system and activator of the inflammatory pathways. As a result, the pain and inflammation pathways are temporarily shut off.
“We’re very excited to be working with Nutra Pharma on this project,” commented Jeff Neal, President of JAH Neal Holdings LLC. “We see a real need for these products as the country is looking for alternatives to potentially dangerous opioid drugs. We also see the need for better solutions to treating pain in our companion animals,” he continued. “We’ve been impressed by the power of Nyloxin and Pet Pain-Away. It’s clear that these products are effective. We believe that the only thing missing from making these products a household name is the cash infusion to begin a broad marketing and distribution platform. It will be our short-term goal to get these products into national retailers with a push to global sales in 2019,” he concluded.
All of the parties are working diligently to complete the necessary steps to enact the creation, funding and launch of the Joint Venture subsidiary with a plan to complete the transactions by the end of the summer.
