DENVER, Dec. 7, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MusclePharm(R) Corporation (OTCBB:MSLP), one of the fastest growing nutritional supplement companies in the United States, announced on Tuesday that its award-winning products will launch in up to 400 of the Vitamin World retail locations nationwide starting in January 2011.
