Purchase Celsius Today!

Celsius is an energy drink that claims to raise metabolism by up to 12% and boost energy levels for 3 hours with their natural, smooth blend of antioxidant rich ingredients, including Green Tea Extract, Biotin, Guarana Seed, and Calcium. Sold in popular store such as Kroger’s and Walgreens, Celsius touts itself as a cheap, flavored drink that claims to keep dieters alert, focused, and slim by burning 100 calories per bottle. Though it does not claim to be a diet supplement, it does claim to be the perfect drink for boosting energy levels during the day.

Although a diet is the best way to boost the metabolism and stay alert, turning to an energy drink may help dieters when energy levels are running low. It is vitally important that they pick the right drink with provable benefits, however, and an affordable price tag. Celsius may deliver on some key points.

Ingredients

According to Celsius, their drink contains Calcium, Chromium, Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Biotin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Guarana Seed, Green Tea Leaf Extract, and Ginger.

Product Features

Celsius focuses on including natural ingredients instead of synthetic ingredients, and some ingredients may legitimately boost energy levels. Green Tea Leaf Extract and Guarana Seed are both sources of caffeine, and the type of caffeine contained in both sources is scientifically-proven to be gentler than straight Caffeine. This type of caffeine stimulates the central nervous syndrome to halt fatigue and causes a less harmful “energy crash” when the effect wears off. Green Tea Extract also contains chemicals that stimulate the metabolism, and sipping two or more cups of this tea may result in increased metabolism. This may be the source of Celsius’s claim that it may stimulate the metabolism.

Celsius’s other ingredients do not contain any provable dietary benefits, but it may provide nutritional benefits. Calcium is important in any diet and some studies show it may help dieters lose weight, but it is best digested from natural, organic forms, such as yogurt or milk.

It does appear Celsius does contain some ingredients which may boost energy levels and the metabolism, but all sources have a better effect if taken in natural form. Green Tea tends to work the best in its natural form, for example, and its extract form is notably less effective.

Advantages

  • Contains Green Tea Extract, which may increase the metabolism in larger doses.
  • Contains natural ingredients which do not have any major side effects.

Disadvantages

  • Ingredients have more potency in natural, non-extract form.
  • Its main ingredients do not have any notable dietary benefits.
  • Not intended for use as a diet supplement.
  • May cause jitters and trouble concentrating. (See reader comments.)

Conclusion

Celsius is a natural drink that claims to boost the metabolism and energy, and its ingredients may contain some of these properties. Depending on a diet drink to help boost these levels may become addictive, however, and obtaining these benefits from natural sources may offer stronger results.

    My girlfriend drank this and took herself to the ER. 200 MG of caffeine is why people are losing weight, its because it has the same effect as cocaine on the system. Stay away. Natural my arse.

    I am a 66 year old female and drank Celsius during a 10 minute elliptical and 15 min treadmill walking routine in conjunction with light weight activity for 20 min. After the exercise, I noticed black spots in my right eye and light flashes. The ophthamologist said they were floaters and may go away on their own. It has been six months and I still have them. I attribute them to greater eye pressure due to ingredients in Celsius, because I never had them before during physical activity.

    I tried the drink earlier when sold in Costco. Loved it!!! Used for about a month. I stopped it later because I was feeling awake even after 3am in the morning. Recently I got few cans to try how it works. But it is giving me adverse effects. I am suffering from insomnia. I was able to sleep when ever i want and whereever I want earlier. But now I was awake more than 36 hours and still going. I am not even nodding off. Caffeine influence varies from person to person and in my whole life I have never had Coffee or Tea.

    I am not sure about other effects, but I will have to discontinue!!!!!

    Wow, a lot of folks simply can not read a can. No Aspartame is bolded on the can. On the supplement panel 200mg of caffeine ( equivlent 2cups of coffee)No Sugar, No Presevative, or Art colors. I have used it for 2+ years prior to working out due to the very positive clinical studies on this product. No magic here, it is simply helps you reach your goals.

    This drink definitely helps me work out longer. I walk/run on my treadmill for 45 minutes everyday. Before I started drinking Celius I would look for every reason in my brain to stop before 45 minutes were over. Now, after drinking Celius about a half hr before, the 45 minutes just fly by. It amazed me from the 1st can I drank. I eat a light lunch, maybe 450 cals, wait about half hr, drink a can and do my workout. Doesn’t keep me awake at night as long as I do it early, but I think working out helps me sleep great anyway. I highly recommend this product.

    This drink originally was helping me with my energy then I started getting side effects. Worst, was my lack of concentration and memory loss. I could not do some of my normal daily task. I developed stomach inflammation as well. do not ignore these side effects

    My wife and I have both tried this pre-work out (running) and love it. I am not a caffeine user and I’ve had no ill effects. I don’t feel jittery at all and I think it gives me a little more energy and makes running and playing basketball seem a little more effortless, and improves my endurance. I don’t want a pre-workout drink to take over my body, just help a bit when I’m tired, and this fits the bill. I think some of the negative side effects some people are describing are probably from the Taurine, not the caffeine. I won’t be using it every day, but I will buy more.

    I’ve had many different drinks, in the last 10 years, recently (in the last 2 weeks) I have been drinking celsius, I didn’t like the flavor too much,However it gives me an amazing boost of energy in the gym, I jog without feeling tired like I used to for 30 minutes and continue to workout hard pumps for 2 hours, I get home I feel good with no crash and sleep well at night I recommend it

    My first time drinking it was before school, it was great up until 2nd period when I started cramping in my stomach.

    I didn’t think too much of it… I just thought I had to go to the bathroom. So I did. But I continued to drink it and now a week later, I’m feeling terrible…..

    Not tired, but my stomach and I have to go to the bathroom like every 2 or 3 hour…. It definitely increases metabolism…..

    I’ve lost about 8 pounds in a week… that’s unnatural.

    I am wondering if half a can before working out will have enough effect to be worth the effort of getting it down? I don’t really consume much caffeine, and about 20 minutes after my workout I started getting hot flashes, a sick stomach, and a little light headed. Anyone else get possitive results cutting it down to half a can? I tried the Green Tea Raspberry Acai, and the taste was horrible! But I did have more energy for my workout which is a huge plus.

    Well, after a restless night, I gave.this drink a try. I drank it on an empty stomach 35 min. before heading to the gym this morning. I got to say I drink two cups of coffee first thing in the morning. This drink, so far, felt like a great pick-me-up energy while running on the treadmill. I did feel a little bit light headed but it could be also for the.lack.of sleep. So far, so good.

    Use it in the morning with breakfast before a workout! You obviously arnt going to see results if you sit around and expect something to do the work for you. It will help with your workout, which will help you overall lose weight. With diet and exercise this drink can do nothing but help. I’m down 10 pounds in 2 weeks since starting celsius, but a lot more went in to it than a drink. Don’t rely on anything other than yourself to lose weight, but try this drink before your workout and you might be suprised.

    I love this drink so much. How could you choose any other energy drink. 10 calories and you can burn up to 100!! It has 0 sugar, 0 high fructose corn syrup. The list goes on. I have been drinking 1 can a day for over a year. I drink only water and really try and watch what I eat so my Celsius is my treat to myself everyday. I love the Green Tea Raspberry Acai.

    I don’t know how anyone can say ANYTHING negative about this drink. I pulled a 24 hour Guard shift as a US Marine, and after my shift with ONE of these (raspberry acai flavor) I was able to do 2 hours in the gym feeling VERY clear headed.

    I bought this recently, and so far really love it. Great tasting. Now, I was a Red Bull Drinker prior to finding this drink, I’ve switched to Celsius. A, it is cheaper. B, it has WAY less calories. In fact, 10 total. C, It provides more energy then Red Bull ever did, for me. D, I have actually eaten less when I consume this drink. I simply don’t even feel the urge to snack. Amazing. If you drink Soda, Coffee, Juice, etc…and are Bashing this drink, get real. There are pros and cons to hmmm..everything in life? Read your Diet Drink,yes ‘DIET’. Even better research it. Soda is horrible and needs to be replaced. I LOVE CELSIUS, haven’t had one bad flavor yet and I’m flavor picky!

    I have been been drinking Celsius for a few months and absolutly love it!!! It has helped me have the energy to excersise and stay up late for college homework. Iv noticed that the days i drink it i eat less and am not as hungry as the days i dont drink it. I could drink it alone for the great taste and energy it gives me but it helps me lose the 15 pounds i put on after a bad accident where i got internal damage.

    I am not a health expert but just have a little common sense, don’t drink it at 6 pm, do it early and exercise at least 2 hours. Don’t consume any more caffeine in the day after that and you should sleep better. Take a chamomile tea before bed if you need to relax. I hope this help

    I’ve been using Celsius for about 4 weeks. I drink a can right before my workout and it gives me that extra boost I need at 5:00 am. It tastes good and doesn’t make me crash after. It is important that you have some kind of mix of protein and carbs. after your workout. Always make sure to feed the body.I haven’t really noticed a weight loss, but the energy boost is pumps up my workout which kicks up the matebolism.

    My mother is 50 years old and has been drinking this for 2-3 months now, she has type 2 diabetes and water retention so I worry when she tries things like this. But she has actually been losing weight! And she also seems to have more energy :)

    I recently too have started drinking this, and find it very energizing (at least for me) I think it before I workout, and have energy left over to do all the other household chores.

    Though I literally only had about 2 hours of sleep, I still feel great. I advise you don’t take it at night.

    Been hooked on Celsius for a while. I don’t drink it to lose wait, but rather enjoy the taste, and can use some rev’ing up during my day. Some of you seem to look for it to be your diet miracle. Just enjoy it, eat well and keep active. Do your homework on where to purchse it in order to get the best deal. Celsius.com often has sales, & I just printed several $2.00 coupons (off a 4 pack) from their web-site. ENJOY!

    DO NOT drink this drink. I had a horrible experience with it…went for a normal bike ride and ended up in urgent care. Had blurred vision, nausea and passed out. This is not something to take lightly…it may work for people but it’s not worth the potential risk. This had NEVER happened to me previously.

    I’ve been drinking the citrus flavored one and it’s pretty strong so I dilute it with water. I drink it right before my workouts and sometimes during. It does seem to give me a lot more energy and pep while I’m running on the treadmill. I usually can’t tolerate caffeine so although the can says it’s got quite a bit of it, I haven’t had any problems sleeping yet (drank 5 cans so far). Don’t know if it’s actually helping me burn calories but like I said,it seems to make my runs easier.

    I have tried the Raspoberry Acai one a few times now. I dont get the “rush” like I used to get with redbull. I am not new to the caffeine world but wished that I noticed a little more of a “eye opener” with Celcius like it said I should. Im gonna keep trying it to see if it will kick in. If not, its less calories then Redbull and has some type of health-ness to it. And NO.. it does NOT contain Aspartame or sugar or corn syrup. The taste isnt TOO BAD.. maybe just because Im not a big fan of green tea. Maybe I’ll have to try a different flavor but i still give it a thumbs up.

    I just tried Celcius for the first time, and I really like it. It gives me a little jolt of energy before my morning run, and it makes me feel better knowing that I’m burning more calories during my exercise routine just for drinking it. It’s win, win! I really recommend it, especially since it has no aspartame, no high fructose corn syrup, no sugar, no carbs, no preservatives, and very low sodium.

    i started drinking celsius feb of 2009 i lost almost 50 pounds but i was also watching what i ate and hitting the gym every night.. since then i have gained some of it back because i stopped watching what i ate and going to the gym… for those of you who say this drink is not addicting well news flash it is.. i have been drinking 2-3 cans a day for over a year.. very pricey. the local store stopped shelfing the wild berry one which is the only one i like i now order it by the cases online. when i don’t have at least 1 a day i feel like a walking zombie. yeah in the beginning it gave me the gitters and so on but my body is so immuned to them i could prob drink a case of them and it would do nothing. the people at my job call it my crack juice because you never see me without one. drinking my first one of the day as i write this.. yes it gives me my energy the taste is great and well i am a celsius addict..

    I have been drinking Celsius for well over a year. I LOVE it.My husband, who was drinking more “charged” energy drinks, has switched to Celsius and though he does not “work out” (he does have a very physical job) he is losing weight and notices it gives him energy without making him jittery. I think everyone has to realize that it is going to affect everyone differently. Some people may be having reactions to what is IN the Celsius itself, like the different extracts, and whatnot.
    In my opinion, this is a much better thing to drink than coffee (which burns my stomach), and much better than soda. But to each their own opinion, no one’s opinion is ever wrong! :) Blessed Be!

    Wife who is 120 lbs drank one of the Celcius 100 cans last night (she’s a frequent coffee drinher – works as an ICU Nurse) and an hour later we were at the local Emergency Dept. with her hooked to a heart monitor with a rate in the 160′s and BP in the 160/90 range and a ER Doc talking about admitting her to Cardiac ICU for caffine overdose and pushing IV meds. After 4 hours of meds and IV Fluids she was OK to release and she’s off work yet today feeling rotten. DOc says avoid this stuff he’s seen 3-4 people in the last 2 montrhs with similar symptoms. We both know this Doc (we both work Emergency med – I’m an EMT) and he’s straight up and knows his stuff – if he says its bad, its BAD.

    Save yourself a really rotten experience and take your dog for a jog or take a walk.

    I bought 3 (4) packs today of Celsius. I have to find my receipt. I only had one drink it was the Cola flavored at around 2PM and it did not agree with me. It is not 11PM and I was experiencing shortness of breath. I feel really wound up but what bothers me is the shortness of breath. Since its been 9 hrs. hopefully this wears off soon.

    Actually, I tried peach mango w/ green tea. The taste could definitely be improved but it DOES NOT contain aspartame. The sweetener in this drink is sucralose, ex. Splenda. This is a bit healthier than aspartame! Although the taste is pretty crappy because of the aftertaste, I drink it because of only 1g carb., no sugar, added B vitamins and other nutritional benefits. So, if you’re wanting a healthier drink with a little boost, you should try it. If you are sensitive to caffeine or do not consume caffeine regularly, you may experience “jitters.”

    [Reply]

    Rachel

    I initially tried it because i got a sweet deal with coupons and basically getting it for the cost of tax. I didn’t expect much but was pleasantly surprised that it only has 1g carb and no sugar. Being on a reduced carb diet this drink fit right in. I drank it after pulling an all nighter working till 3am and returning to work at 6am for a meeting..it got me through the meeting and on into my day. There was no crash and I felt energized and had mental clarity. I am not a coffee drinker so my ‘normal’ level of caffeine in take in pretty low, but I actually like the drink. I will probably try drinking 1-2 per day. So far it is ok with me.

    No matter how many new products they come out with there is only one sure way to lose weight and get fit and it’s not easy. You have to eat the right healthy foods and exercise. Every product out there will not work with out watching what you eat and exercising so save your money you don’t need fancy products.

    I LOVE the “Cola” flavor…I think it tastes just like Diet Coke, which I love and used to drink several cans a day of. I’m not really on a diet / don’t feel I need to lose any weight, but for me, drinking Celsius is more about cutting out / substituting all the soda I normally drink and replacing it with something healthier. It’s been great so far…I haven’t had a DC in weeks!!

    If you are concerned about your weight, you are at a great age to lose weight through exercise. I lost a lot of weight at 14 just by dancing for 1/2 an hour every night in my bedroom. If you focus on eating mostly fresh fruits and veggies and drinking water, your complexion should be gorgeous as well.

    Best wishes!

    Courtney,

    Excess caffeine can stunt your growth at your age. It’s also extremely hard on the adrenal glands. Please be careful – I still can’t determine how much caffeine per can is in Celcius, but I do know that at your age, you shouldn’t be consuming that much caffeine!

    Michelle

    The can says that it has 200mg of caffiene per serving.. so 200mg per can.

    [Reply]

    catie

    actually it’s been proven that caffiene does not stunt your growth. that’s just an old wise tale.

    This product doesn’t work. The product info even tells you that you must diet and exercise. The so-called benefit is only 100 calories per can which would require 35 cans to produce one pound of fat lost. Bogus product using caffeine to stimulate you. It is mildly addictive, so take a pass on Celsius.

    [Reply]

    Janine

    well duh, you can’t sit on ur a$% and eat pizza and lose weight. But it boosts your metabolism from all the healthy ingredients which will make u burn more calories and since it is natural I don’t see how it could be addictive.

    [Reply]

    Seagull

    Cocaine and nicotine are natural. You probably can’t see how they are addictive either. Arsenic, Cyanide, and Hemlock are natural, too. The only reason they aren’t addictive is that you die after the first use most of the time. There are few healthy ingredients in Celsius, and many have side effects that are disturbing. Please understand a little about what boosts metabolism. Let’s use smoking as an example. The damage each cigarette does to the human body is so harmful that the body’s natural defenses have to go into overdrive to try to repair the damage. While your body can never repair all the damage, the flurry of activity that this fight causes takes up a lot of energy or calories. The resulting boost in metabolism from the body’s fight against the damage done by cigarettes is small consolation considering the smoker’s increased exposure to heart disease, stroke, more than eleven types of cancer, emphysema, etc. So, you can keep a small amount of fat off your ass by smoking. Your pallbearers will be grateful that your coffin is easier to carry. Celsius certainly not in the destructive league with cigarettes, but there is no proveable increase in metabolism from it. Caffeine does not give energy. It may cause nervous physical motion which would indeed boost metabolic rate by a microscopic degree. What price are you willing to pay for a tiny–perhaps negligible–step up in calorie expenditure? Exercise is the ONLY healthy step one can take to boosting metabolism without causing unacceptable side effects. Caffeine is not a serious offender, but neither is it completely harmless. There is no substitute for a good night sleep to earn a restful state of wellness, nor is caffeine a replacement for exercise to boost metabolic rate. You won’t find thinness in an aluminum can. So, Janine, in answer to your comment, Celsius does not safely boost metabolism, and it does not have healthy ingredients. Spend your money on a good pair of walking shoes instead. You can’t safely raise your body’s rate at which it uses energy (calories) without exercise. Celsius is distracting you from the one solution at your fingerprints. Like so many other products today, it is a scam.

    This did nothing to disprove Janine’s point.

    Nat

    What I got from the article was to buy Green Tea Bags, drink two cups per day and drink two to three cups per day of milk (skim is best). And exercise moderately five days per week. You will get the same results with out the side effects.

    [Reply]

    Sarah

    That’s rich. All natural doesn’t mean anything. Feces is natural… do you want to ingest it?

    Also, “all natural” is actually vague and there is nothing regulating the term and ensuring that it is in fact all natural.

    If it is all natural, it does not mean that it isn’t addictive. Opiates are all natural but also addictive. You can also be addicted to caffeine itself.

    This product does work, I have taken it with exercise for about six months and have lost 70 pounds in one year. Of course a lot of exercise, and drink plenty of water and healthy food no fried foods and limit the sweets. I used to be 225 i went down to 147. Fifteen minutes after you drink celsius the energy kicks in I love to walk and I couldn’t stop until the energy died off. I got home and felt like cleaning, so even once the exersice stops you still are going no crashing! Celsius is some good stuff.

    It is like all the similar products. Use it for a month, then take a break for a week or two. This will keep the effect up and will prevent you from becoming “addicted” to it. Good luck

    Worst energy drink EVER. So, I took this drink thinking it would give me that extra boost of energy I need without the crash. Now, prior to drinking Celsius I was averaging atleast two cups of coffee per day, so I wasn’t concerned when I saw the caffeine amount per drink (200mg). Once I drank Celsius, I immediately felt jittery which I felt was odd, considering how much caffeine I drink per day. That wasn’t the scary part. My vision then became BLURRED, and it became extremely hard to concentrate or function doing simple activities that I do everyday! I then did some research, and the substitute for sugar they put in the drink called ASPARTAME has the most frightening side effects I have ever seen! No wonder this drink hasn’t been FDA approved!! This just a blurb from amazon.com. READ IT. STUDY IT. DO NOT DRINK THIS DRINK!!

    The components of aspartame can lead to a number of health problems, as you have read. Side effects can occur gradually, can be immediate, or can be acute reactions. According to Lendon Smith, M.D. there is an enormous population suffering from side effects associated with aspartame, yet have no idea why drugs, supplements and herbs don’t relieve their symptoms. Then, there are users who don’t ‘appear’ to suffer immediate reactions at all. Even these individuals are susceptible to the long-term damage caused by excitatory amino acids, phenylalanine, methanol, and DKP.

    Adverse reactions and side effects of aspartame include:

    Eye
    blindness in one or both eyes
    decreased vision and/or other eye problems such as: blurring, bright flashes, squiggly lines, tunnel vision, decreased night vision
    pain in one or both eyes
    decreased tears
    trouble with contact lenses
    bulging eyes

    Ear
    tinnitus – ringing or buzzing sound
    severe intolerance of noise
    marked hearing impairment

    Neurologic
    epileptic seizures
    headaches, migraines and (some severe)
    dizziness, unsteadiness, both
    confusion, memory loss, both
    severe drowsiness and sleepiness
    paresthesia or numbness of the limbs
    severe slurring of speech
    severe hyperactivity and restless legs
    atypical facial pain
    severe tremors

    Psychological/Psychiatric
    severe depression
    irritability
    aggression
    anxiety
    personality changes
    insomnia
    phobias

    Chest
    palpitations, tachycardia
    shortness of breath
    recent high blood pressure

    Gastrointestinal
    nausea
    diarrhea, sometimes with blood in stools
    abdominal pain
    pain when swallowing

    Skin and Allergies
    itching without a rash
    lip and mouth reactions
    hives
    aggravated respiratory allergies such as asthma

    Endocrine and Metabolic
    loss of control of diabetes
    menstrual changes
    marked thinning or loss of hair
    marked weight loss
    gradual weight gain
    aggravated low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
    severe PMS

    Other
    frequency of voiding and burning during urination
    excessive thirst, fluid retention, leg swelling, and bloating
    increased susceptibility to infection

    FYI Aspartame is in every diet drink and other diet products like fat free yogurt & they are FDA approved. Aspartame is definitely not healthy for you, however i wanted to point out that, that chemical was not holding up the approval from the FDA.

    [Reply]

    Cindy

    The can says right on it that there is no aspartame… I was told that they use Splenda instead of sugar.

    [Reply]

    Jill Jones

    The can does say no ASPARTAME

    [Reply]

    Nicole

    Splenda IS Aspartame. Sucrolose as well.

    [Reply]

    not really

    Splenda is just sucrolose, no aspartame- aspartame is the ingredient in nutra sweet- it is a chemically formulated sweetner. Splenda is manipulated sugar.

    Jill

    Splenda is every bit as bad for you as aspartame. Splenda is sucralose, and Nutrasweet is aspartame.

    Jessica

    I think this person is a hypocondriac. There is no Aspartame in this. Which is surprising because as was stated earlier, almost everything you read that has no sugar has aspartame. i don’t think it’s even been proven to have those side effects for sure, but we need some sweetener in our food or it would all be very bland and then you’d be complaining about the taste.

    yea ur right maybe a hypo because i love this stuff it doesnt give me a thru the roof energy and i dont crash….NO aspertame in the drink and i myslf have lost 20 lbs in the last two weeks…great energy boost and makes me want to exercise i lov ethis i have my mom and all my friends drinking it..

    i agree with you on some of this syntoms but also if you are on a low calorie diet you get them too,a person need vitamins and nutrients to keep going and in a diet you loose alot of this,if a person count on a drink to get them and feel good they are going to increase this syntoms

    I just drank this drink about 10 mins ago. I do feel the effects of this drink, however it does not contain aspartame, it actually contains Sucralose which is an artificial sweetener. I will see how I do when I work out today.

    As stated “All energy drinks are bad for you” but so is pretty much everything these days. Buy organic. I personally love celsius (limit 2 cans per day) over the other energy drinks on the market. If your worried about health and ingesting bad products then eat healthy and don’t drink energy supplements…..duh! Just please don’t go on the internet bashing a product because you personally don’t like it.

    [Reply]

    Bob M.

    As for the side effects, I’ve been drinking beverages with Aspartame in them since at least the early nineties (about several per week) and have NEVER experienced any of these side effects. Long-term effects, well the jury’s still out on that one, but I haven’t had these issues.

    I also love this drink. I used to see a weight loss doctor, and since I’ve lost 35 lbs, I’ve been trying to find things to help maintain my weight. Celsius is a great supplement. It gives much more energy than the commercialized energy drinks (IE. Rockstar, 5 Hour Enery, Red Bull, etc), and I still haven’t experienced any negative side effects from it. You can tell that it doesn’t contain aspertame (as the label reads), because it doesn’t have that nasty diet drink after taste, like most diet soft drinks have. I order it from their online store. I would this drink recommend to ANYONE trying to lose or maintain weight.

    [Reply]

    meeeeee

    for one personally i think i like i love this drink my stomache feels weird but i’m pretty positive its because I was doing an abb workout while i was drinking this product and I personaily think that it is safe for people to drink people that are dissing this drink shouldn’t try to make people not drink it just because they had a speciffic side effect i’m sure its because we all have different bodies and ther way they work so you are going to have a different side effect for each person im not saying my little speech here is the facts but IM pretty positive this is the reason so please stop saying the negetive because it might freak people out when its not even true.

    [Reply]

    Yeah welll

    In reply to your aspartame rant, i just wanted to point out that the drink has no aspartame in it. Im not affiliated with Celsius im just good at reading labels and research. As an active supplement user and researcher i know that aspartame is used in most diet products and has been proven to have some problems but its not in everything and doesnt automatically give you these health problems. most people that have these problems already had a pre-existing medical condition due to poor diet and lack of excercise. Some people are very sensitve to caffeine and others arent. And to the woman who is 66 and drinking energy drinks…youre 66 – dont drink energy drinks. if youre having problems with energy when you wake up try drinking an 8 ounce glass of water.
