Stevia vs Sugar


Stevia: Nature's Sweet Wonder!


Stevia Leaf originally came to us from the area of South America and the Paraguayans have been using Stevia Leaf for over a thousand years as a sweetener.  Stevia is a plant that is 30 times sweeter than sugar and has been used as a sweetener not only in Paraguay, but also by the people of South America and many countries in Asia.  In the 1970's, the Japanese created a method of taking the sweet element out of the leaf and thereby creating a new dietary supplement which was reported to be 300 times sweeter than sugar. 

Research on Stevia has indicated that Stevia regulates blood sugar and has been used by either diabetics or hypoglycemics in South America.  Other reports claim that Stevia lowers elevated blood pressure; stops or retards the progression of some types of bacteria that live in the mouth and gums, which have been known to cause tooth decay. 

Stevia has no calories and has been used by people who are looking not only for a sugar substitute, but a weight-loss aid also. 

Water-based Stevia has been used on skin problems such as acne, seborrhea, eczema and dermatitis.  Pure Stevia has also been used for minor cuts and abrasions with a minimized chance for scarring. 

One of the most interesting uses of water-based Stevia is in the area of skin care.  Many, many people have used Stevia directly on the skin as a wrinkle reducer and results are noticed immediately.  A few drops of water-based Stevia are placed directly on the skin and left there to dry for approximately 1/2 hour to one hour.  Simply rinse off and notice the immediate change. 

Clients report extremely favorable results upon using Stevia as a sweetener, and/or as a wrinkle reducer
