stevia-natural sweetener

by Josip K. website owner
Stevia leaf has been used for centuries as a sweetener by the Guarani tribes of Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazila. Stevia rebaudiana, also known as sweetleaf, sugar, or simply stevia leaf, is grown for its sweet leaves. Extracted from its leaves and fruits get a sweetener that can be in several forms - liquid, fresh powder, sugar sachets and small pill. Powder extracted from the leaves is 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar confectionery, while the leaves themselves 35-45 times sweeter than sugar.

No energy value, and causes no insulin response, which crystallized as its most important and most positive characteristics. It may therefore be a perfect fit in all the diets and diet in patients with type II diabetes, as well as nutrition for children is not a good medium for bacterial growth, and thus protects teeth from decay. Since the other artificial sweeteners are banned in Japan, natural stevia is very popular, and the Japanese are the largest growers and plant species in the world. Interestingly, stevia and steviosides were banned in the U.S. because they are considered "adulterantom" ie, each product is sweetened with stevia is considered falsified! Stevia has been banned on the EU, but that has changed.
2006th The WHO (World Health Organization) made the evaluation then made ??to study and set up a conclusion that stevioside and rebaudioside A have no genotoxic or carcinogenic effect on humans. The same evaluation is put forward another important conclusion - stevioside shows the effect of pharmaceuticals in humans suffering from type II diabetes and those who have high blood pressure. Pharmaceutical effect simply put means that helps in improving the condition of such patients and taking steviol glycosides in the amount of 4 mg / kg body weight.

After much debate and research, and set out the positive aspects of using Stevia and its many positive effects:

regulator of blood glucose (sweet glycosides are constituents, rather than carbohydrates)
used in the treatment of obesity
reduces nausea
relieves heartburn
stimulates digestion
helps in lowering blood pressure
accelerates wound healing and reduces scarring
determines the potential positive impact of osteoporosis
Stevia leaves stevioside except the rich and many micronutrients such as iron, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, flavonoids and routine vitamin A and C.

How many of the above compounds show antioxidant effect, it is not surprising that stevia has the effect of anticarcinogens.Due to these properties with natural stevia can not be measured or another artificial sweetener.
