The Power of Nitric Oxide: Colorado-Based, Woman-Owned Wingman Smart Energy Beverage Set to Take Off with National Distribution

Energy Drink Category Disruptor Launches High-Performance, Functional Beverage with Immune-Boosting Amino Acids that Benefit Heart, Body, and Mind. Company Announces Key Industry Advisors; Seeks Investors and Retail Partners for Continued Growth and Expansion.

Boulder, CO (December 3, 2020) – Colorado-based Wingman Smart Energy, an emerging high-performance energy beverage brand, is pleased to announce its new line of products and the company’s expansion plans for national distribution and growth, all while seeking out new investors and retail partners. Wingman Smart Energy's unique functional ingredients elevate a body's performance through the power of nitric oxide, a molecule that increases blood flow and
performance in the muscles.

Designed for enhancement of heart, body, and mind, Wingman's proprietary, all-natural, immune-boosting beverage is a first-to-market, unique blend of amino acids positioned to disrupt the beverage category. In the past year, Information Resources Inc. reports that the energy drink category has maintained steady growth and projects sales to reach $12.5 billion. That statistic indicates new
products that enter the already crowded space must be innovative and made with functional ingredients to attract new market segments.

“We’re hitting the ground running with our first-of-its-kind, patent-ready Wingman Smart Energy line. Everybody needs a wingman for optimum performance throughout the day, and that's why we created our product, which features better-for-you ingredients that leading energy drinks only wish they had created,” says Kristin Schroeder, Co-Founder, Owner and CEO, Moonlight Beverage Company,
makers of Wingman Smart Energy. “Consumers are looking for products that enhance performance, yet are low in sugar and boost the immune system while providing natural energy all day long.”

Goals Get Crushed with Wingman
Wingman Smart Energy bolsters natural nitric oxide levels, an innovative approach to increasing energy and stamina. The discovery of nitric oxide coined the “Miracle Molecule" led to a Nobel Prize for its vital role in cardiovascular health. Each 12-ounce can of Wingman Smart Energy is power-packed and available in five varieties: Citrus, Cranberry Lime, Tropical Mango, Unicorn, and Very
Berry. Wingman Smart Energy is an intentional drink designed for daily use:

  • Immunity: Amino acids boost nitric oxide to support the immune system.
  • Heart: Nitric oxide increases blood flow to the muscles, which improves exercise.
  • Body: Kickstart the body into action with natural caffeine and ribose, which powers up energy production on a cellular level.
  • Mind: Cognizin and B vitamins sharpen the mind, memory, and motivation to move. A proprietary form of citicoline, Cognizin is a potent brain-health nutrient, clinically tested to support attention and recall, offered by Kyowa Hakko USA, Inc.

“Take a close look at other energy sports drinks on the market today; they are packed with artificial ingredients and too much sugar. With nitric oxide enhancers, the main ingredients in Wingman, the body will perform better. This is the secret sauce that athletes have known all along" says Dr. Richard E. Collins, The Cooking Cardiologist. “Wingman is the most natural high-performance beverage that helps support healthy arteries that get the blood flowing. Wingman makes other energy drinks envious of its performance results.”

Propelled for Growth
Reports indicate that 85% percent of the American population consumes at least one caffeinated beverage every day. That’s why the parent company of Wingman Smart Energy, Moonlight Beverage Company, is ready to expand distribution across the country in the upcoming new year and is positioning the brand to be a better choice for energy drink consumers everywhere. Currently, Wingman is sold online and at Boulder-based Alfalfa’s Markets, including many Cross-Fit gyms,
independent retailers, and convenience stores along the Front Range, and has a new distribution agreement with Denver-based NewAge, Inc.

“We’re excited to expand the Wingman footprint here in our backyard and we’re fortunate to have also secured partnerships with multiple brokers who will help open new doors outside of Colorado,” noted Carl Schroeder, Moonlight Beverage President, and Co-Founder. “We’re looking to collaborate with like-minded partners and align with investors who see the innovation and opportunity to take Wingman to the next level.”
