Natunola Release Q2 and its First Six Months Results



    WINCHESTER, ON, Aug. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Natunola Health Biosciences Inc.
(TSX-V:NHI) ("Natunola") (formerly Sentex Systems Ltd.) reports that the
revenue for the quarter ended on June 30, 2008 was $573,137 as compared to
$558,862 for the comparative period for 2007. There was a small increase in
revenue; however, due to the increase cost of sales and the higher sales and

for the quarter ended on June 30, 2008 as compared to a net loss of $26,017 or
$0.00 per share for the comparative period for 2007.
    The increase cost of sales is due to the increasing fuel cost and higher
commodity prices. As a result, the Company will increase the product selling
prices during the third quarter. The higher sales and marketing expenses is
due to the cost associated with extensive launch of the Company new retail
flax product line.
    The sales of the Company's flax products continued to grow and increased
by $156,199 or 46.2% for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 versus the
comparative period for 2007. The sales of the Company's cosmetic and personal
care products decreased by $68,510 or 51.4% for the quarter ended June 30,
2008 versus the comparative period for 2007. The decrease is due to the fewer
shipment of the Company cosmetic and personal care products to the US market.
    General expenses declined by $72,025 or 10.3% for the first half ended
June 30, 2008 versus the comparative period for the first half ended June 30,
2007. The decrease is due to lower expenses in both general and administrative
cost and the research and development cost.
    Gross margins decreased slightly by 1.5% for the first half ended
June 30, 2008 versus comparative period for 2007. The decrease in gross
margins is due to the increasing fuel cost and the higher commodity cost and
the higher sales and marketing cost.
    The sales of the Company's flax products increased by $352,363 or 53.2%
for the first half ended June 30, 2008 versus the comparative period for 2007.
The sales of the Company's cosmetic and personal care products decreased by
$97,260 or 36.2% for the first half ended June 30, 2008 versus the comparative
