Ingredients in Beta-s Show Strong Support for Maintaining Healthy
Cholesterol Levels

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 18, 2001--Baywood
International, Inc. (OTCBB:BYWD) has re-introduced Beta-s(TM) under
its Purechoice(R) line of premium single ingredient supplements.

Beta-s(TM) had previously been sold by Baywood as a separate brand as
a healthy cholesterol support formula.

Recently the United States">food and Drug Administration (FDA) has
issued statements that certain products in the marketplace containing
Red Yeast Rice Extract (Monascus Purpureus) may not be legally sold
in the United States as a dietary supplement. In particular, the FDA
has taken the position that such products are considered unapproved
{*filter*} under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) Act and that
the products consist of the yeast, Monascus Purpureus, when fermented
on premium rice powder. The fermentation of the rice with this yeast,
under certain conditions, produces a product that contains
lovastatin, the active ingredient in a leading prescription
cholesterol lowering drug.

Beta-s(TM) offers an effective, yet safe, alternative to the existing
products in the marketplace containing Red Yeast Rice Extract. The
two">food substances of 300 milligrams of beta-sitosterol complex and
30 milligrams of citrus pectin are known cholesterol lowering agents
that, when combined together, alter dietary fat and cholesterol
absorption. Beta-s(TM) is broken down in the upper intestine within
30 minutes after ingestion. The proposed mechanisms of action are:

(a) Intestinal binding and excretion of free cholesterol

(b) Blocking of absorption sites in the intestinal walls

(c) An enzymatic shift decreasing liver cholesterol production,


(d) Increased liver enzyme functions on the breakdown of fats

"Our Beta-s(TM) has always been considered an effective choice for
our customers in their healthy dietary and cholesterol maintenance
programs. Only until recently, however, with the onset of regulation
on Red Yeast Rice Extract by the FDA has the demand for our product
increased as an effective alternative for retailers and consumers,"
stated Neil Reithinger, President & C.E.O.
