The company recently sent us a sample of PerformElite for review. 

PerformElite Review

I'm pretty active at the gym, or hiking, biking, and paddleboarding in the mountains so I was excited to try PerformElite to see if it really did work to give me greater stamina and endurance than my usual pre-workout double shot espresso. 


I mixed a scoop of PerformElite with 8 fluid ounces of water but the directions state that it can be mixed with 8-16 fluid ounces depending on the consumer's preference.

The result was an easy to drink, fruit-flavored beverage that was on the sweet side at the minimum recommended concentration.  The flavor and sweetness did a good job of hiding the taste of the supplements.

Ingredients and Effect

PerformElite has a pretty extensive supplement list and includes the following:

  • Caffeine Anhydrous (150mg)
  • PurEnergy (150mg)
  • ElevATP (200mg)
  • Taurine (1500mg)
  • Peak O2 (1000mg)
  • Huperzine A (.05mg)
  • Choline Bitartrate (1000mg)
  • Beta-alanine (as Carnosyn®) (3200mg)
  • Beet Root Powder (1670mg)
  • ActiGin (50mg)

The caffeine in PerformElite is from two sources; first there is caffeine anhydrous and secondly, there is time-released caffeine in the form patented as "PurEnergy".

With the second type, caffeine is combined with pterostilbene to form a cocrystal which slows the rate it is broken down and metabolized by the human body.

I consumed this product about 30 minutes prior to my gym session. During my workout, I felt as though I had more energy during my gym session than I typically do. This allowed me to push out a few more reps and do my whole workout slightly faster. 

In all, PerformElite probably contains about 75 mg more caffeine than I'm used to in my normal pre-workout coffee. However, because 75 mg of that is extended release, I didn't feel jittery or hyped up. I just felt like I had more stamina. 

I liked PerformElite since it did a good job of combining supplements in a way that produced nice results opposed to other pre-workouts that I've tried which just hyped me up on caffeine.
