Nutrition For Life International, Inc.
Introduces All-Natural Sweetener

HOUSTON, June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrition For Life International, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLI) today announced that it will introduce Ki-Sweet(TM), an all- natural sweetener made from kiwi fruit, at the Company's Mind & Body Institute product symposium to be held in Eau Claire, Wisconsin on June 6, 1998.

Ki-Sweet(TM) is the first product of its kind made from kiwi fruit. It offers healthier benefits over the widely-used glucose and sucrose-based sweeteners. Most natural sweeteners on the market today are made from high- glycemic ingredients, and the artificial sweeteners can contain chemicals and other substances. Ki-Sweet(TM) is made from 100% natural kiwi fruit with no additives or preservatives. It is low glycemic; it does not significantly elevate blood sugar or insulin levels, making it safe for diabetics, hypoglycemics, pregnant or lactating mothers, and children. Ki-Sweet(TM) contains no fat or calories per serving, and is ten times sweeter than sugar with no aftertaste or bitterness. In its raw concentrated form, Ki-Sweet(TM) is 200 times sweeter than sugar.

"We are extremely pleased to make Ki-Sweet(TM) available to health- conscious consumers through our network of independent distributors," commented Jana Mitcham, Executive Vice President and Host of the Mind and Body Institute. "It is a breakthrough product that can make a difference in the quality of life for the many people who desire or require a healthful way of eating."

Ki-Sweet(TM) was developed by Dr. Ann de Wees Allen, Technical Consultant to Nutrition For Life International, Inc. and Chief of Biomedical Research at the Glycemic Research Institute in Washington, DC. Ki-Sweet(TM) carries the Seal of Approval from the Glycemic Research Institute as well as a special designation from the American Diabetes Association.

Dr. Allen is a Doctor of Naturopathy, and a distinguished professional with fifteen years of in-depth research in the field of amino acids, the glycemic index, thermogenesis and nutritional adjuncts to cancer treatment. She has served as personal nutritionist to the 1995 Pan American Games Gold Medal Winner, the 1994-1995 Mr. Universe, Mr. Olympia, and Olympic athletes. Her patent-pending L-Arginine growth hormone releasing formula is designed for professional athletes and used in conjunction with the Human Maximum Performance program. Dr. Allen also serves as Director of Nutrition Science to Women's Fitness International(TM) magazine.

Nutrition For Life International, Inc. develops, markets and sells an extensive product line of nutritional supplements and other consumer products through its network of nearly 90,000 distributors. Currently the Company markets its products in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the Republic of Philippines, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
