PGA Veteran Fred Couples Becomes Ambassador to Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals

February 16, 2012

Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals, abortion Inc., medic a subsidiary of Star Scientific, Inc., today announced that PGA Tour professional, Fred Couples, is the company’s first Brand Ambassador for Anatabloc, its breakthrough product for anti-inflammatory support.

Couples is a 32-year veteran of the PGA Tour, with over 50 professional tournament wins including the Masters (1992), and has been twice named the PGA Tour Player of the Year (1991, 1992).

“I started taking Anatabloc, and within a few days, I simply started feeling better,” said Couples. “There has been a difference in how I feel, both when I wake up in the morning and throughout my day. Anatabloc was an amazing find for me and I continue to feel better.”

Introduced in August 2011, Anatabloc is a dietary supplement that assists the body’s natural process for regulating inflammation using an alkaloid found in plants and vegetables, combined with Vitamins A and D3 to assist in maintaining healthy levels of inflammation. Excessive inflammation is associated with a variety of autoimmune conditions, as well as athletic and work-out injuries. Anatabloc™ is now available through

“We discovered from golf legend Fred Couples that he had been taking Anatabloc and we were delighted to hear he was feeling great and seeing real results,” said David Dean, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Star Scientific. “Given his stature and popularity on and off the course, it made absolute sense to ask him to join our team as a Brand Ambassador. This year marks the 20th anniversary of Couples’ win at the Masters and he will be playing in the Tournament. To be in the game at this level and playing this long is an amazing accomplishment.” Dean added. Couples will wear the Anatabloc logo on his sleeve at all tournaments going forward.

Couples announced his partnership with Anatabloc and his use of the anti-inflammatory supplement at the Northern Trust Open—a tournament he almost won in 2011—at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, CA.

“Anatabloc should enable millions of Americans, like Fred, to be more active by maintaining a healthy level of inflammation,” said Jonnie Williams Sr., Chief Executive Officer, Star Scientific. “Other professional athletes such as NFL All-Star Jeremy Shockey and tennis stars Jimmy Arias, Aaron Krickstein, Rob Seguso and legendary coach Nick Bollettierri are already using Anatabloc and talking about how it is changing their careers as well. We want everyone to know there is a new way to deal with the aches and pains associated with excessive inflammation, and the answer is Anatabloc,” he added.

“I hope my story will let millions of Americans know that Anatabloc may be an answer in helping them return to an active lifestyle,” said Couples.
