DC Brands Lands Top Neurosurgeon

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - February 20, 2009) - Today, DC Brands International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DCBR) is extremely proud to announce that they have a new addition to their team. Dr. Larry McCleary, Pediatric Neurosurgeon and bestselling author, has joined forces with H.A.R.D. Nutrition. Although it required several meetings at the company's Wheat Ridge, Colorado headquarters, Dr. McCleary has become a true believer in the company's products, message and staff. The company's President and CEO Richard Pearce said, "Dr. McCleary is a genius; pure and simple. He is literally a brain surgeon and is mind numbingly brilliant to speak with. We believe that Dr. McCleary together with Robert Nikkle, our Head Herbologist (who we affectionately call Dr. Bob), will take the company's products to an all new level."

Pearce continues, "The decision of Dr. McCleary to join our team only helps to validate everything we have been saying. This is a man with a stellar reputation and an unbelievable background. We are humbled to have him wanting to be a part of the H.A.R.D. Nutrition family. And who is it that this genius of a man comes to on supplementation? It is our own 'Dr. Bob.' I greatly enjoy listening to the two of them talk; although, admittedly, half the time I have no idea what they are saying. But what is clear is that Dr. McCleary has some formulas and ideas of his own that will be rolled into the H.A.R.D. Nutrition family of products and he adds a whole new dimension to our staff."

In a recent correspondence from Dr. McCleary to Mr. Pearce, he said, "Hello Richard. It was good seeing you again. I think the products I showed you today will help accelerate the momentum you have already established. My hope is to build a multi-dimensional science-based company with you, Dr. Bob and the other talented members of your team. I looked at my schedule and will be able to come to Denver on Wednesday of next week."

Therefore, next Wednesday night, at the company's normal seminar, attendees will have the ability to come listen to this preeminent neurosurgeon and one of the great minds of our time. They will have a chance to get inside the brain of this man, who has literally looked inside of, taken apart and repaired so many brains of others. Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to hear Dr. McCleary lecture and answer all of your questions face to face. This seminar will occur on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 7:00pm at the company's headquarters located at 9500 W 49th Ave. Ste #D-106 Wheat Ridge, CO 80016. Seating will be limited to the first 150 people.
