Revive Energy Mints™ Sponsors Ultimate Fighter Conor Heun's Showtime Fight

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - Today Revive Energy Mints™ & RyLo Products, LLC announced that they would be sponsoring Conor "The Hurricane" Heun in his upcoming Strikeforce ShoMMA event on June 19, in Kent, Washington being televised on Showtime. Conor Heun is one of the nation's fastest up and coming lightweight competitors in the world of mixed martial arts. Heun fights out of Legends Gym in California along with Eddie Bravo and Joe. Looking to keep a three-fight winning streak alive, Heun will debut at Strikeforce against UFC vet Jorge Gurgel. With an unmatched wrestling background and unprecedented determination, Heun has proven to be a fierce competitor in the Mixed Martial Arts lightweight division.

RyLo Products, LLC is a Denver-based Food & Beverage company that manufactures and distributes healthy energy-providing mints; that's right, healthy energy mints! Unlike the competing energy drinks or energy shots, Revive is a mint that fits comparable energy content into a small, breath-freshening mint. In 2008, RyLo launched Revive Energy Mints™, a healthy energy supplement that has the boost of the industry's leading energy drinks along with auxiliary health benefits provided by some of the world's most power superfoods -- acai, mangosteen and goji berry. To bring the product to the market, RyLo has used a similar distribution model to those that have fueled the success of some other large energy supplement companies, seeking out distributors across the United States and Canada. According to COO Ryan Russo, this model has proven to be very successful. "Our company has grown to a multi-million dollar company almost overnight. Our product has seen very positive feedback in the market and our distributors are doing very well," said Russo.

In February of 2009 RyLo & Revive Energy Mints™ teamed up with MAA fighter celebrity Conor Heun to promote the product and edge into the exploding mixed martial arts scene. The sponsorship has been beneficial to both parties explains CEO Logan Chierotti. "Conor has a great personality. His naturally over-the-top charisma and adulation for the product has really helped us tap into the MMA world and Conor knows that we are here to help him in any way we can," Chierotti said. Heun's fighting career appears to be really taking off. With his feature on MTV's "Bully Beat Down," a featured appearance on Showtime, and now a chance to team up with one of the nation's fastest growing energy supplements, it seems as if things are really lining up for California resident Conor "The Hurricane" Heun.
