									VPX Sports® Introduces BANG® – an Intelligent Beverage Design Aimed to
Change Typical “Energy Drink” Perception

The beverage innovators at VPX® have re-defined the “energy drink” category by introducing
BANG® -- a novel, great-tasting 16 ounce carbonated beverage formulated to fuel the brain and
body. “BANG® is not your typical high sugar, health robbing beverage,” rather, BANG® consists
of several patent-pending compounds and patented compositions intelligently designed to deliver
results “…without the sugar-induced metabolic mayhem and crash.” -Jack Owoc, Chief Executive
& Science Officer for VPX Sports

Weston, FL, November 30, 2012 --(PR.com)-- With a BANG, VPX Sports introduces a new extension to
the carbonated energy beverage category. BANG® is a refreshing, great tasting beverage that is a first of
its kind and expected to attract interest from consumers and industry alike.

VPX has thrived upon its reputation to create cutting-edge, science-backed and value-added products that
consistently exceed consumer expectations. As you would expect BANG® is at the forefront of VPX
innovation by introducing a patent-pending novel water stable Covalently Bonded Creatine/Glutamine
Peptide, Caffeine, BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) and a patented encapsulated CoQ10 that
dissolves clearer and is more stable than other commercially available CoQ10. For this reason, Jack
Owoc describes BANG as the “first hybrid energy/sports nutrition beverage designed to increase ATP
(the the body's energy 'currency') without carbs or other macro nutrients like sugar. All of the High
fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and high sugar content energy drinks are harmful for health and actually zap
your body of energy by causing the body to over-express insulin. This contributes to the American
pandemic of obesity and other related diseases.”

Creatine, Glutamine and BCAA's - Energy is Synergistic
Current commercially available beverages that claim “energy” are more often than not associated with
immediate effects, use high levels of sugar and can lead to symptoms of “crash.” BANG® incorporates
Creatine, Glutamine and other amino acids including BCAA's that optimize the kinetic and potential need
for energy, not just an immediate effect. Immediate energy, energy transfer and energy conservation
optimize the synergistic mechanisms that go above and beyond the expectations of typical short-term
energy beverages in this category.

Not all Creatine are Created Equal
VPX Sports® have created novel Creatine compounds that allow Creatine to maintain its structure over
time in a beverage. Utilizing these novel patent/patent-pending innovations enable functionality of the
Creatine molecule to deliver better efficacy in a beverage. BANG® is the only carbonated beverage that
contains this proprietary technology to deliver Creatine along with other health nutrients into the body.

CoQ10 Activates Energy in Every Cell of the Body
BANG® also contains CoQ10 which is not only required, but, responsible for activating cellular energy.
CoQ10 helps to optimize energy synthesis by protecting the integrity of the mitochondria necessary for
maintaining energy production. CoQ10 is a non-polar compound which means it does not dissolve well

into water. In addition, the non-polarity of CoQ10 correlates with the reduced bioavailability compared to
water soluble compounds. In order to fortify with CoQ10, VPX Sports® have partnered with VIRUN®
and Specialty Products Division at Hormel Foods to combine a patented CoQ10 encapsulation technology
exclusive to the BANG® formulation and composition. Having access to the patented technology for
CoQ10 allows for a stable CoQ10 inclusion, clearer appearance and reduction in unfavorable flavor notes.
The encapsulation technology is GRAS, does not contain detergents and has been shown to increase the
delivery of the active compound.

Jack Owoc, CEO and founder of VPX Sports stated, “BANG® creates an entirely new beverage category
not intended to compete against the dozens of 'old school' energy drinks commercially available. BANG®
is a well-researched and precise fractionation of energy expenditure and energy utilization to deliver
where others 'crash.'”

Philip Bromley, CEO VIRUN stated, “VPX Sports® is a perfect example of innovation; combining
unique ingredients to capture many mechanisms of action that contribute toward a specific claim and
assure that claim is substantiated.' 'BANG® tastes incredible and I can't wait to see it hit shelves!”
