Stevia: The sweet leaf for diabetics and cardiopaths
This sweetener is revolutionizing the market; thanks to its unequalled properties, it is a must-have for all diabetic or overweight people. Stevia, also called "sweet leaf," is 300 times sweeter than sugar and, unlike artificial sweeteners, it is a completely natural product.
It has an effect on sugar levels in the body,since it works as a natural hypoglycaemic agent that regulates glucose levels. It is particularly effective in Type 2 Diabetes (i.e. non-insulin-dependent diabetes).
It is also a natural alternative for overweight people. This non-caloric sweetener has become the most recommended sweetener for those needing to lose weight in a natural way.
It has powerful antioxidant properties, similar to those of green tea. Antioxidant properties are involved in the conservation of all kinds of cells, particularly skin and nerve ones.
As it has vasodilator properties, its consumption is beneficial to people with heart and circulatory problems.
Thanks to its bactericidal properties, it is added to toothpastes and mouthwashes for controlling tooth decay.
Additionally, it has an effect on bad cholesterol by lowering its levels in the body and preventing its fixing to blood tissues.
Just as any other product provided by nature, it has no side effects. Stevia has no calories, cyclamate or aspartame. It is 100% natural.
