Can You Drink Celsius Every Day? (The Truth Revealed)

Celsius is a thermogenic energy drink that’s been manufactured in the US since 2004. 

The brand features a proprietary Metaplus Blend that’s a combination of several natural ingredients: taurine, guarana extract, green tea extract, caffeine, and ginger extract. The drinks are also said to be free of sugar, fat and preservatives.

Marketed as a fitness partner that will help you “burn body fat and calories”, Celsius drinks are sold in 12 fl.oz ready-to-drink cans and 5.9g powder sachets.

But, can you actually drink Celsius every day?

Let’s dive in and take a closer look…

There are four product lines under the Celsius brand: 

  1. Originals (signature Celsius series, includes both carbonated and non-carbonated versions)

  • Taurine
  • Guarana
  • Caffeine
  • Glucuronolactone
  • Ginger extract
  • Green tea extract

With so many ingredients, it’s really hard to make sense of everything. So let’s focus on just three areas here: 

  1. Caffeine
  2. Sugar
  3. Vitamins

Caffeine

Celsius contains 200mg of caffeine in a can for its Celsius Originals, Sweetened With Stevia and On-The-Go product range, whereas Celsius Heat has 300mg of caffeine in each can.

This is actually quite a lot of caffeine in just one drink.

I personally like to stick to drinking somewhere between 50mg to 100mg of caffeine per serving.

Based on guidelines given by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you shouldn’t take more than 400mg of caffeine per day in order to safeguard your health. So bear that in mind when you decide to have a drink of Celsius.

It would be good if you are also aware of your personal caffeine tolerance level too, so you’ll know in more certain terms whether or not the amount of caffeine in Celsius will be a problem for you. 

If you experience any of the following symptoms, please seek medical attention: 

Sugar

In case you hadn’t realised yet, Celsius energy drinks don’t contain any sugar. It’s very clearly stated on the product label.

But how are we getting that sweet taste in the drink if there’s truly no sugar in it?

The answer lies in one of its ingredients: Sucralose

Sucralose is an artificial sweetener which is about 600 times sweeter than regular sugar yet it has zero calories. It’s used in lots of processed foods nowadays, so you needn’t worry about whether it’s safe for consumption.

However, there’s still a possibility of your health being impacted negatively if you have too much sucralose in your diet. You may face issues such as:

  • Insulin resistance 
  • Migraine
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel disease

Vitamins And Minerals

Check out this section from my other post if you’d like to know what I think about the vitamins and minerals combo that you’re getting in a Celsius energy drink.

The gist of it is that you don’t actually need to consume that much per day for most of the vitamins found in Celsius. This is with reference to the recommended daily intake (RDI) given by the FDA and other similar health authorities.

Let’s take a look at the vitamin content in the brand’s signature series, Celsius Originals, to illustrate my point: 

Vitamin / MineralQuantity In Celsius
Energy Drink
RDI
Vitamin C60 mg65-90 mg
Riboflavin (vitamin B2)1.7 mg1.3 mg (men)
1.1 mg (women) 
Niacin (vitamin B3)20 mg16 mg (men)
14 mg (women)
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5)10 mg5 mg
Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)2 mg1.3 mg 
Biotin (vitamin B7)300 mcg 30 mcg
Cobalamin (vitamin B12)6 mcg2.4 mcg
Calcium50 mg1000 mg
Chromium50 mcg35 mcg (men)
25 mcg (women)
Vitamins and minerals found in Celsius energy drink.

As you can see here, the quantity of the vitamins supplied in a can of Celsius is pretty generous, but not really necessary based on RDI. 

So, for example, the high levels of biotin or vitamin B7 (300 mcg) that’s in your Celsius drink is excessive and most of it would probably just get eliminated by your body in the end rather than doing you any good.

Where Can I Buy Celsius Energy Drinks And How Much Does It Cost?

There are plenty of options when it comes to how you can get your hands on a can of Celsius energy drink.

For starters, you’d probably find it very easily at your local Walmart, Target or convenience stores if you’re living in the US.  

Or, you could just save yourself the hassle and opt to purchase your drinks online. I’ve written this whole other post about how to get the best online deals for Celsius energy drinks that you might want to refer to.

As a guide, I found on the Internet that a 12 fl.oz can of Celsius energy drink costs around $1.50 at Walmart whereas it was priced at around $2 at Target.

Is Celsius Energy Drink Good For Health?

That’s a very subjective question, honestly. (And this is the case for most energy drinks, and not just Celsius.) 

Generally speaking, the answer is that it really depends on the way you consume these drinks. 

Thanks to the caffeine content in Celsius, you will certainly experience short term improvements in brain function and a boost in energy levels once you drink it. 

However, you may face lots of health issues if you’re not careful about the way you consume Celsius drinks. For example, if you take too much at a time and go beyond the recommended daily intake. 

As with all other things in life, you really need to know your limits (in this case, your caffeine tolerance level) and always drink energy drinks like Celsius in moderation.

Can You Drink Celsius Energy Drink Every Day?

Limit yourself to one can of Celsius energy drink per day.

Yes, you can drink Celsius every day if you want to. 

However, I would suggest that you don’t drink more than one can of Celsius a day due to its high caffeine content.

This is assuming you are a perfectly healthy individual who has no underlying health issues, of course.

If you do have any existing health conditions, then please consult your doctor before adding Celsius into your daily diet.

Can You Drink One Can Of Celsius A Day?

Sure! You can absolutely drink one can of Celsius a day.

With its 200mg of caffeine in a can (or 300mg, in the case of Celsius Heat), you are still within the daily limit of 400mg that is recommended by the FDA. 

Meanwhile, you can drink Celsius without worries about your sugar intake since it doesn’t contain any. 

But if you go beyond just one can, you might land in trouble. 

By drinking just two cans of Celsius, you would already have maxed out your daily caffeine limit. 

So if you also had other things in your diet which are laden with caffeine, you will be overdosing on caffeine. This may lead to other health conditions such as seizures, renal failure and psychosis. 

So, to be on the safe side, I’d say you ought to stick to just one can of Celsius if you plan on drinking it every day. 

Alternative to Celsius Energy Drink

And here are some powdered drink options too, in case you may be keen to try it out:

REIZE

Choose REIZE for your everyday energy fix.

I would recommend REIZE as a great alternative to Celsius since it has less caffeine (only 50mg per sachet, just 25% of what you’d get in Celsius) and is also sugar-free.

REIZE also contains health enriching ingredients like ginseng, taurine and lots of B vitamins.

It’s also a really convenient and compact option as you can easily bring a sachet with you wherever you go. You also have the flexibility of mixing it into any beverage of your choosing. 

And if that’s not sweet enough of a deal for you, here’s more good news: It’s only around $1 per sachet and that’s including the shipping costs straight to your doorstep.

Give REIZE a try if you’re looking for that everyday energy fix, and you won’t be disappointed.

In fact, you’ll probably agree with me that it’s better than Celsius.
