DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - April 8, 2008) - Natural Health Trends Corp. (NASDAQ: BHIP) announced today that it will apply to transfer its Nasdaq listing from the Nasdaq Global Market to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company no longer meets the continued listing standards for the Nasdaq Global Market because, as reported in its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company no longer satisfies the $10 million stockholders' equity requirement set forth in Marketplace Rule 4450(a)(3). The Company has reported that it had stockholders' equity of $9,562,000 on December 31, 2007.

On April 3, 2008, the Company received a letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market giving notice of its failure to meet the minimum stockholders' equity requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Global Market. After evaluating this letter, the Company has decided to apply for a transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company believes it meets the continued listing requirements for the Nasdaq Capital Market. Listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market will result in a minor cost savings for the Company. The Company does not believe that stockholders' liquidity will be adversely impacted by a transfer to the Nasdaq Capital Market.
