Celsius, the Original Calorie Burning sparkling beverage, was created by a dedicated team of experts united by a strong commitment to science, nutrition and the consumer. It was important that Celsius be shown to work effectively. In fact, Celsius launched into the marketplace in June 2005 after completing a clinical study validating its calorie burning benefits. Since then three additional clinical studies have been completed and published with Celsius confirming efficacy for burning calories, raising metabolism and providing a sustained energy boost.
