What is Stevia?
Stevia is processed from the “Stevia Rebaudiana” bush - a herb in the Chrysanthemum family which grows wild as a small shrub in parts of Paraguay and Brazil. The glycosides in its leaves, including up to 10% Stevioside, account for its incredible sweetness.
The leaves are processed using pure and natural water & the result is a snow-white powder called stevioside. It is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar and sweetens without raising blood sugar levels. It also has no carbohydrates or calories and is safe for diabetics and those who suffer from hypoglycemia.
Overseas, where stevia controls over 40% of the sweetener market, you will often find it on the kitchen or restaurant table just as you would sugar. Japan uses it to sweeten its Diet Coke instead of Nutra Sweet. In Japan, it is also used to sweeten soy sauce, pickles and soft drinks and it is being used by companies such as coca cola for their products.
Is it Safe?
The Japanese during their evaluation of stevia as a possible sweetening agent performed elaborate safety tests. Few substances have ever yielded such consistently negative results in toxicity trials. Almost every toxicity test imaginable has been performed on Stevioside at one time or another. The results are always negative.
Unlike the green leaf powder, stevia extract has virtually no aftertaste and does not leave any residue. Some people dislike the taste of stevia leaf powder and those who do will love this extract.
Now you can forget about using artificial sweeteners and use a completely natural product extracted from the plant in a completely natural way. The smallest pinch is more than enough to sweeten any cup of tea or coffee so only use very, very small amounts at first to asses the sweetness.
Is it Healthy?
Stevia can aid in weight loss by reducing appetite and can be used to suppress tobacco and alcohol cravings. This is because the stevia leaf contains various vitamins and minerals including vitamins A and C, zinc, rutin, magnesium and iron.
This Extract may also help with symptoms of diabetes, blood sugar irregularities, sugar intolerance, candida, chronic fatigue syndrom (ME), fibromyalgia (FM), allergies, ulcers and hyperactivity.
