What’s in Celsius’ MetaPlus?
MetaPlus is the name of Celsius’ proprietary thermogenic blend found in every can or bottle of Celsius. Celsius is the world’s first proven “thermogenic” calorie-burning supplement that tastes like a soda. Celsius raises your metabolism with its unique blend of ingredients like Green Tea with EGCG, Ginger, Taurine, Guarana, and caffeine. Celsius raises your metabolism on average 12% for up to three hours. The result is a sustained increase in energy and extra calories burned. Each bottle of Celsius has only 5-10 calories and it has no carbs, no sugar, no chemical preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, and is very low in sodium.
What is “thermogenesis“? Thermogenesis literally refers to the creation of heat (thermo: heat, genesis: creation). When we create heat, we burn additional calories. Any substance which stimulates the body’s resting metabolic rate (RMR) and raises body temperature is called a thermogenic agent. Celsius is packed with thermogenic agents that work with your metabolism to turn up the heat in your caloric furnace and burn extra calories
Celsius gets its fire from its proprietary Thermogenic Blend of nutrients:
Green Tea Extract with 10% EGCG: Green tea and green tea extracts have been shown to have positive effects on metabolism and antioxidant activity. EGCG is one of the important components of Green Tea Extract.
Caffeine: The most commonly consumed drug in the world. Naturally occurring in a variety of popular beverages to food supplement products people use everyday, caffeine has proven to be truly safe and effective. Most known for its ability to reduce fatigue and enhance alertness, caffeine has also been clinically tested as a metabolic accelerator and renowned for its thermogenic effects. Clinical trials have shown increases in metabolic rate after caffeine ingestion. Research also shows caffeine is absorbed by the body better in liquid form than pill form and takes only 15-20 minutes to get into your blood and begin working. Celsius delivers beyond the benefits of energy and calorie burning. Caffeine is also popular among sports enthusiasts, because it improves performance and endurance during long exercise and enhances short-term, high intensity athletic performance.
Proven to be truly safe and effective, caffeine has also been clinically tested as a metabolic accelerator, and shown to increase metabolic rate after ingestion. Caffeine is an ingredient in many beverages—including energy drinks —which has been consumed by humans for thousands of years. It occurs naturally in many plants or their seeds or fruits. Among the common sources of caffeine are coffee beans, tea leaves, cocoa beans, kola nuts and guarana. The caffeine levels found in energy drinks are generally less than or equivalent to the amount found in coffee when compared on a per ounce basis. For many individuals caffeine at levels found in energy drinks can boost alertness and performance.
Guarana Seed Extract: Indigenous Amazonians used guarana seeds as a natural stimulant and tonic. In addition to caffeine, guarana naturally contains large amounts of tannins that promote antioxidant activity. Guarana is a shrub or small tree which grows in South America. Extracts of the plant, fruit or seed of the fruit may be used to provide flavor and also may contain caffeine and other compounds. It is a natural source of caffeine found in food supplements. Indigenous Amazonian people used guarana as a stimulant and tonic long before the first European explorers arrived.
Ginger Root Extract: Ginger root exerts positive effects on the digestive, cardiovascular and central nervous systems. In addition, evidence suggests ginger may decrease pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis. The gingerols are the plant components of ginger that impart a warm, spicy taste.
Taurine: An amino acid essential to the central nervous system, skeletal muscle and both the brain and the heart that may enhance protein synthesis via its effects on cellular hydration. Taurine occurs naturally in the human body and is involved in many of its vital functions. Some studies indicate that taurine may have antioxidant properties. Other scientific research suggests that taurine may play a role in promoting health by binding together with waste substances to accelerate their excretion from the body. Taurine may enhance protein synthesis via its effects on cellular hydration. It naturally occurs in a wide variety of foods such as scallops, fish or poultry.
Glucoronolactone: A natural metabolite derived from sugar (i.e. glucose) that provides the body with a quick energy boost without adding carbohydrates. It naturally occurs in the human body and is involved in metabolic processes. Some studies suggest that it may support the body in eliminating waste substances. It is present in different foods and beverages such as grains and red wine.
B-Group Vitamins: B-group vitamins are essential nutrients that play an important role in energy metabolism. Celsius contains 100% of the daily value of the important B-vitamin complex; vitamin B2 (riboflavin), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and cobalamin (vitamin B12). These B vitamins are essential for metabolism and energy production. The B-vitamins help to support the adrenal glands. The process of thermogenesis utilizes hormones produced by the adrenal glands and can cause these glands to become fatigued. The addition of B-vitamins helps to nourish the adrenal glands.
