Powder City Review: Super Energy

Ready for Some Energy?

Being an active personal trainer, some days I may wake up at 4:30 am for a client training session and then have my last fitness class at 6:00 pm with clients in-between. Boo-Hoo, right?

The point is, by the end of the day I’m running on fumes. How do I stay energized?

Coffee is my go-to, but my poor clients during the day have to deal with that horrendous coffee breath – the type that knocks people out – even if I’m chewing gum! One alternative to keeping that pep in your step or to even take before a workout is these supplements sent to us by Powder City! Check out the review below!

Need More Energy?

Powder City Energy Main

Powder City

Overview: This alternative energy solution provides the energy boost and mental clarity you need without all the jitters that 4 cups of coffee can bring! 

  • Ingredients: 4.25/5
  • Effectiveness: 4/5
  • Cost: 5/5
  • Overall: 4.41/5


Day after day, at our breakneck pace we commonly get fatigued. The type of tired that rolls around at 2:30 in the afternoon that makes your keyboard look like an incredibly comfy pillow! What should you do? You definitely have a couple of options.

You can slam down more sugar-laden coffee (BOOM calories), chug an energy drink (who knows what’s in it), take a nap (boss might not be happy), or try caffeine pills.

Some people are automatically put off by the thought of caffeine pills, but in actuality, that is exactly why you are reaching for the energy drink or the coffee – for that pick-me-up that caffeine gives you. Powder City sent me over some of their “Caffeine Theanine Capsules” to try out.

These suckers only contain 100mg of caffeine per pop – less than most drinks/coffee. Before I go too far, let me give you a quick rundown of what exactly these pills contain:

  • Caffeine: 100mg
  • L-Theanine: 200mg
  • Maltodextrin, gelatin (encapsulation)

That’s it! But why the L-Theanine?

[Note: Of course, if you are allergic or are highly sensitive to any of the ingredients in this product use common sense before consumption!]


Powder City Energy MainWe know that the caffeine is there to give us a little “jolt” of energy, but what’s the deal with L-Theanine? Sounds like an amino acid? You’re so smart! The makers of Powder City included this into the mix because it deters the jitteriness that can accompany too much caffeine.

You know exactly what I’m talking about – you’re 3-4 cups of coffee deep and you are running 90mph and shaking like a leaf! The addition of L-Theanine helps to forgo that issue while also increasing your ability to focus! Energy and mental clarity are a good, productive combination!

One more thing about L-Theanine, this is an amino acid that you probably drink regularly but don’t even know it.

It is commonly found in tea! Like a good cup of tea, the L-Theanine can help you relax and reduce anxiety – so it’s a great way to combat the “I’m going to freak out” side effects of caffeine!


Powder City EnergySo what it really comes down to is whether this product will actually give you that jolt of energy and mental clarity without the “OMG I’m going to freakout” jitters that can accompany the usual forms of caffeine consumption?

At just one pill a day (taken when you need it and not consuming an entire bottle – pay attention to dosage) you can definitely feel that extra pep in your step without the typical caffeine eye-twitch!

So yeah, it does a great job at doing exactly what it was designed to do – it makes you one productive, “I‘m going to conquer the world” type of worker! Hell, if my company was bigger then, well me… I’d definitely stock up on these for the workers – a little perk of working for DIY Active if you’re interested! 🙂 Anyways, this is a highly effective alternative energy source that could be perfect for you! #PowderCity

Wrap-Up: Powder City Review Verdict

This is a very cost-effective way to kick yourself into overdrive.

You can get 30 pills for less than $4 (even cheaper per pill when you increase quantity). Plus, you only take one pill per day when you need that jolt of energy.

When you combine this with the energy/focus effectiveness of the product without the caffeine jitters, it makes this a great alternative energy product! Check it out below and give it a try!  Overall we give it a 4.41/5!
