August 22, 2013 -- Coral Springs, Florida -- Nutra Pharma Corporation (OTCQB: NPHC), a biotechnology company that is developing treatments for Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Adrenomyeloneuropathy (AMN) and Pain, announced today that they have begun the process of registering their homeopathic treatment for chronic pain, Nyloxin™, in the country of South Africa.
“According to ImpactRX, the South African market for analgesics is over $200M,” commented Rik J Deitsch, CEO of Nutra Pharma Corporation. "We have already engaged a firm in South Africa to begin the registration process and we believe that Nyloxin will be well-accepted in this marketplace. Our goal is to be able to market the product in South Africa by mid-2014," he continued. "This may also allow for the future registration of our other products as well as continuing research for our HIV drug, RPI-MN," he concluded.
The Company recently reported their issuance of Trademarks for Cobroxin® in Colombia and India, as well as patents for the use of cobra venom in the treatment of pain that have been issued in the United States and India.

Nyloxin™ is currently available in the United States as an oral spray for treating back pain, neck aches, headaches, joint pain, migraines, and neuralgia, and as a topical gel for treating joint pain, neck pain, arthritis pain, and pain from repetitive stress.
