Celsius energy drink has become everyone’s favorite, unlike many other energy drinks Celsius is widely consumed. Celsius was founded in 2004 and since then it has dominated the energy drink industry. It’s extremely difficult to climb to the top, but Celsius is a tough cookie.

In fact, Celsius has won many industry awards and even won awards for its packaging. However, we’ll talk about its effects, ingredients, and the product itself rather than the cute paper it’s wrapped in.

Celsius is one of the most popular drinks, especially in the US, it’s marketed as a performance enhancer beverage for fitness enthusiasts.

However, does it actually work and if it does, how long does it last?

Celsius contains 200 mg of caffeine which means it’s going to last for a long time. To be specific, the energy boost lasts for good 2 hours. Celsius isn’t all caffeine, there’re some incredible B vitamins that supports the immune system.

Let’s get into it and learn more about Celsius.

A detailed review of Celsius energy drink

How much Caffeine is in Celsius Energy?

There’re four versions of Celsius, three of them contain the same amount of caffeine which is 200 mg, while the version called Celsius Heat contains 300 mg of caffeine per serving.

Caffeine is the main ingredient that is used in almost every energy drink. It’s a stimulant that stimulates the brain and the central nervous system. It enhances mental as well as physical performance.

Caffeine has several benefits if consumed in moderation. Because consuming overwhelming doses can be extremely dangerous for your health.

As every individual’s body is different, so the dose of caffeine that can be tolerated varies from person to person. If you aren’t careful, you might just end up with several side effects that include:

  • Restlessness and shakiness.
  • Insomnia.
  • Headaches.
  • Dizziness.
  • Rapid heart rate.
  • Jitteriness.
  • Dehydration.
  • Anxiety.
  • Dependency

The FDA recommends the maximum caffeine intake for healthy adults should be no more than 400mg. In case you’re caffeine-sensitive, I suggest you avoid consuming energy drinks.

People who’re sensitive to caffeine when consuming caffeine that their stomachs aren’t familiar with can experience side effects that include:

  • Heart palpitations.
  • Headache.
  • Anxiety.
  • Restlessness.
  • Insomnia.
  • ‘Jitters’ or ‘shakes’
  • Irritability.
  • Bathroom urgency.

Moreover, if you consume the recommended amount of caffeine, but you want to cut back, I would advise against an abrupt cutback because it can result in caffeine withdrawal symptoms which are:

  • Headaches.
  • Tiredness.
  • Anxiety.
  • Difficulty concentrating.
  • Nausea.
  • Muscle pain.
  • Irritability.
  • Tremors.

Is Celsius Energy Sugar-Free?

Celsius excludes sugar but includes several artificial sweeteners

Celsius is sugar-free, but it uses several different sweeteners which are sucralose, erythritol, and stevia.

Sugar can give a boost of energy, but it’s a good thing that Celsius doesn’t use that for an energy boost. Sugar has been linked with many health hazards that include:

  • higher blood pressure
  • inflammation
  • weight gain
  • diabetes
  • fatty liver disease
  • increased risk of heart attack and stroke

According to the AHA, women should consume 25 g of sugar and men should consume 36 g of sugar, however not consuming sugar at all is good as well.

Let’s have a look at the sweeteners that are used in Celsius drinks.

Sucralose

Sucralose is a zero-calorie sweetener that is 600 times sweeter as compared to regular sugar and is often used to enhance the flavor of food and drinks solely.

Unlike regular sugar, sucralose doesn’t cause any kind of changes in your blood glucose levels and so it is considered suitable for diabetics. However, I would advise you to consult a doctor first before introducing sucralose into your diet if you have diabetes.

Regardless of how beneficial sucralose may be, you still shouldn’t consume too much of it because too much of anything can be bad for you.

Erythritol

Erythritol is a kind of sugar alcohol and is usually used in foods and other products that are low-sugar and sugar-free.

Stevia

Stevia is a non-nutritive artificial sweetener that contains zero calories. Stevia products are derived from stevia leaf extract which makes them safe to consume.

Does Celsius Energy Work?

Celsius energy works the same as any other energy drink, but it may last longer because of its caffeine content.

Celsius will surely be effective and will provide the quick boost of energy you need. All in all, Celsius gets the job done.

That being said, its high caffeine content isn’t for everyone, if you’re caffeine-sensitive or have low caffeine tolerance, Celsius isn’t for you. Moreover, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, I would suggest you steer clear of Celsius.

How Many Days Does Opened Celsius Be Good?

Usually, companies recommend drinking it within 5 to 7 days, the carbonation will be dissipated within 24 hours after opening the drink. However, if the drink is unopened, itll last for 18 to 24 months.

I would suggest that you consume your drink right after opening it, or in 1 to 2 days because after that, the drink is no good.

Celsius is mostly consumed as a pre-workout, and I’m sure you wouldn’t want to drink a can that has been unopened for 2 days.

How Many Celsius Energy Drink Can I Have Per Day?

More than two cans of Celsius are not recommended by the brand itself

There’s a warning label on the can of Celsius drink that states that no more than two cans should be consumed.

On the other hand, Celsius contains 200 mg of caffeine per 12 fl. oz. and if you drink two cans the total amount of caffeine in your system would be 400 mg. It can be harmful to you as it’s just around the daily limit.

Energy drinks aren’t the only source of caffeine, the cup of coffee that you drink in the morning contains 100 mg of caffeine.

As there’re two different doses of caffeine in Celsius drink, three versions have 200 mg of caffeine while the Celsius Heat version has 300 mg. Therefore, I would recommend you to drink only one can of Celsius whether it’s the version with 200 mg or 300 mg.

Alternatives to Celsius Energy Drink

If Celsius is too much for you because of its caffeine content, I have some amazing alternatives that you will enjoy without getting the jitters:

You can also give powdered energy drinks a shot because they’re more affordable and you can easily customize them according to your tastes and preferences:
