Why I Recommend Stevia

Stevia is a herb that is much sweeter than sugar and is calorie-free. Stevia does not cause the after-eating spike in blood sugar that aggravates Diabetes. It is actually good for you by reducing your blood sugar.

Right off the plant, Stevia leaves are 15 times sweeter than table sugar. But the leaf extract is an astounding 300 times sweeter. Stevia is native to Paraguay and Brazil where, for centuries, the Guarani Indians called it kaa-he-e, meaning sweet herb.
