Celsius Holdings, Inc., the maker of Celsius®, the original calorie-burning beverage, recently announced that Celsius will be available at more than 4,800 Rite Aid drugstore locations nationwide. With over 4,800 locations in 31 states and the District of Columbia, Rite Aid Corporation is the third-largest drugstore chain in the United States.

Drinking Celsius raises an individual’s metabolism and can burn up to 100 calories and more per can. In addition, research indicates that consuming one Celsius prior to a workout may enhance the benefits of regular exercise. All three flavors of Celsius, Orange, non-carbonated Green Tea Raspberry Acai and Green Tea Peach Mango will be included as part Rite Aid’s 10-week, online weight loss plan. This online plan is designed to help consumers achieve their weight loss goals.

Kelly Michols, vice president of strategic sales, stated, “We are thrilled to become part of the Rite Aid drugstore chain. We commend Rite Aid’s commitment to offering quality healthy beverage products to their customers and we feel that Celsius is a great addition to their merchandise mix.”
