What is a Mana Energy Potion?
Mana Energy Potion is the premium energy shot made by gamers for gamers. It's for long nights of gaming, partying, and the longer mornings that follow. It has lots of vitamins, no sugar, and no aftercrash.

 

What is a Health Energy Potion?
Health Energy Potion is our second potion, it tastes smoother with an apple-cinnamon flavor and additional helpful herbs and vitamins like elderberry, ginseng, and biotin. Health Energy Potion has powerful energy similar to Mana Energy Potion, except that instead of getting you charged up to do battle, it recharges you after the fight. With a slightly different energy profile, it will pick you up for work in the morning or get you ready for a new night of gaming.

 

What is it going to do to me?
It will bump your mana or your HP up +160 (real world humans have about 100 mana, by the way). It's 5-8 hours of smooth, jitter-free energy. When it comes to caffeine content, this potent shot is equivalent to about two 8-ounce Red Bulls® or four cups of crappy office coffee.
