Mana Energy Potion Review

Listen up readers/nerds/caffeine addicts alike, it’s time to rummage through your closets, reinstall Dungeons & Dragons, and put on your robe and wizard caps. Everyone seems to be a little bit depleted on their Mana points lately and a 160pt (caffeine in mg per serving) increase should get those woman-less LAN Parties back on your weekly schedules. Bow to Harcos Inc. inferiors, they bring to you Mana Energy Potion.

For those normal not fortunate enough to have ever spent more than six consecutive hours on a computer/console game, let me explain what Mana means. Mana is the term most commonly used in video games for the “magic” or “energy” points that a character has. Without Mana there would be no magic, no spells, no curses. Hell, games as we know them would be meaningless! Or at least less eventful, but I’m an extremist with these sorts of things. With that being said, Mana Energy Potion won’t do any of this for you.

Sorry to dash your hopes but if you don’t already have powers, drinking Mana isn’t going to give them to you. It will however give you one amazing morning, afternoon, and late night gaming session.

Magical Mechanisms

It was easily apparent a tremendous amount of thought was put into this product. The contents of the Proprietary Energy Blend have all been seen before in past drinks, nothing special there, but what IS fascinating is the addition of Dietary Enzymes. That’s not a typo people, this Energy Shot includes Amylase, Cellulase, Lactase, Lipase, and Protease. Together these Enzymes help break down starches, cellulose, lactose, fat, and protein in your stomach.

That just about covers all of the bases in terms of the food pyramid and for the life of me I can’t understand why they would be present. I mean, sure you can figure, “If these enzymes break down foods into sugar then they must be good for a nice pick-me-up” but enzymes are delicate and the balance your body keeps of them is equally delicate. Adding more to the equation might not doing anything, or it might just throw off another part of your digestive track.

Late night gaming + lots of pizza + possible digestive problems = Office meetings spent in bathrooms. A little help here FDA? (Luckily I have yet to have digestive problems from this beverage though that doesn’t rule out the possibility)

Genie In a Bottle

The flavor is truly unique, the website describes it as a “Citrusy formula with a sour bite” and I’m definitely in agreement. One of the best comparisons that came to mind was sour candy made of Trix Cereal. There’s a little bit of sweetness, that yields to an overpowering sour kick, bitterness chokes out the kick for a few seconds and I swear there was even a hint of salty before returning to sweet. Wow what a ride! 4 out of 5 taste buds might be a new record for a single beverage. Impressive even if it does take some getting used to.

D&D Lives On!

Maybe it was the magical enzymes, or maybe it was the glass vial design, but after drinking this (and shortly another) I was buzzing with all sorts of good energetic feelings. What could this strange satisfaction be? For once, I’ll dig no deeper into these dragon infested dungeons and leave it at that.

The appeal of this drink IS the mystery and hype and spoiling that would only ruin the spontaneity of buying products like these. In a world of plainly branded aluminum cans, nothing hits the spot better than a good dose of originality. With the amount of thought that went into this product, I would be hard struck to choose any energy shot over this. I strongly encourage you to try this If you’re feeling a bit low on energy, it can only be bought online in quantities of 2 bottles for USD $12 to 144 bottles for $523. (I recommend starting low before throw down 500g, thats an awful lot of farming money)

Overall Score (4.5/5)

  • Nice review! You have some seriously snappy writing in there.

  • Celeaha

    this drink looks awesome but also extremely expensive!!!

  • Daeneth (lvl 90 Energy Fiend)

    Pretty good review, if a bit uninformative. I’m not sure about downing potions in real life with the same sort of blissful and naiive fervor of our computerized counterparts–I like being informed, too.

  • Scole

    Doh, you got it all wrong man.

    Dungeons and Dragons uses memorized spells per day, not mana points. You goofball.

  • FantasyGrl

    I took half of one of these to write a pulitzer-prize winning article on a small town sushi restaurant, and in addition to causing a dangerously elevated opinion of my talents, that drink has given me waaaay too much energy. I’ll give it this: I’m not jittery. My foot is tapping faster than when I play the Rockband drums on Expert, but I’m NOT jittery. No sir. These things work. Use with caution and a chaser–because Mana tastes nasty.

  • SgtBash

    Drinking this hasn’t made me at all jittery but the flavor was TERRIBLE. Mana’s aftertaste reminded me of Nyquil, and it took me almost 2 minutes just to down this thing. To be honest, since these have roughly the same caffiene level as 3 cans of mountain dew I’d just rather grab a 2liter and chug that. That’d also have saved me quite a good deal of money. I’m not sure yet how the “energy mix” in it will last but about 20 minutes in, I’m really not even getting the boost i expected.

  • Montymio

    It tastes like crap, and the other one more so.

  • Dr. B—–

    Hi guys,
    As an M.D. I must warn against consuming too many of any of these new “energy shooters”. I enjoy games and late nights myself, but I stick to the old standard for my artificial wakeful states (coffee).
    Caffeine and L-tyrosine can aggitate certain heart arrythmias. Some people (more than you would think) have certain arrythmias called PACs and PVCs. These are essentially extra beats. One chamber of the heart beats twice before the other chambers contract. They are typically painless “flutters” or “hard-beats” that most people dont even know they have. One or two times, these are harmless. However if they occur in runs of twos, threes or more, they can lead to dizziness, loss of energy (rapid), weakness in extremitites, and worse at times (typically in the elderly but… it can be bad for anyone). Keep in mind, 95% of PAC patients dont ever need treatment, but PVCs can be nasty and cause people to faint or black out if they are too frequent.
    Im sure one of these “elixers” will give you the strung-out classic caffein high. ( Shakey wide-awake anxiety-laden feeling. Believe it or not its not TOO terribly different than weak cocaine ) But consuming multiples could exacerbate an undiagnosed condition and send you into the local ER. Caffeine is a DRUG. A weak, legal drug, but a drug nonetheless. But people have hurt themselves significantly by overdosing on it. So enjoy your energy drinks but dont over-do it guys. Game on 🙂

    dish soap…. there’s always a hint of dish soap after one of these goes down.
