"A race around the castle grounds against another student may result in the winner gaining a Famous Witches and Wizards Card. The use of a Vitamix potion is strictly against the rules, however, and not only due to the fact that this is un-sportsmanlike behaviour - the Vitamix potion may have unfortunate side effects on certain people."
— A Hogwarts library book on broom racing[src]

Vitamix Potion was a potion that gave the drinker 'a burst of energy', greatly sharpening one's reflexes.[1] The Vitamix potion could give certain people unfortunate side effects.[2]

To brew a Vitamix potion, one had to mix Infusion of Wormwood, Powdered Root of Asphodel and Monkshood in a Copper Cauldron.[1]

Because it enhanced the drinker's reflexes, using a Vitamix potion in a Broom race was strictly prohibited.[2]


Comes from the Latin word "vita" which means life, and the English word mix, roughly meaning "Life mix" alluding to its ability to induce vitality in the drinker.
