NFL Defensive Player of the Year Jason Taylor Joins HealthSport

Defensive End to Promote the Importance of Electrolyte Replenishment

AMHERST, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 12, 2007 -- HealthSport, Inc. (OTCBB: HSPO) ("HSPO") announced today that it that it has reached an agreement with Miami Dolphins Defensive End, Jason Taylor, to become a spokesman for Enlyten™ Sportstrips™. HealthSport, Inc., a publicly traded company on the bulletin board market under the ticker symbol HSPO, is focused on the development, manufacturing and marketing of nutritional supplements in a one-of-a-kind edible film strip delivery system.

As part of the agreement with HealthSport, Taylor will be featured in a number of promotional and advertising activities promoting the Enlyten SportStrips. "It's great to see a product that really works," said Taylor. "In a sport like football where players are prone to body cramping, Enlyten SportsStrips can be a real advantage. Staying in tune with your body and paying attention to what you need to stay healthy is very important. Enlyten SportsStrips have helped me achieve my maximum strength and endurance."

In 2006, Taylor had 62 tackles, 13.5 sacks, 14 quarterback hurries, two interceptions -- both returned for TD's -- 11 passes defensed, 10 fumbles forced and two fumbles recovered. This proved to be his best season as he was named the Associated Press NFL Defensive Player of the Year. During his 9-year career with the Dolphins, Taylor has been named to five Pro Bowl teams and has been bestowed numerous awards for his play on and off the field. Since being drafted in the third round in 1997, Taylor has become one of the best defensive ends in the game and an NFL superstar.

Enlyten SportsStrips replace the electrolytes the body loses while exercising. Delivered through buccal absorption, a method very different than other electrolyte delivery predecessors, gastric absorption is bypassed, and the electrolytes needed are directly absorbed into our bodies through the mucosal membrane in the cheek. Additionally, this will help to avoid the over-hydration that could occur through excess consumption of sports drinks to achieve similar electrolyte replacement.
