Did You Know?

Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni is a perennial shrub native to the Amambay Mountain region of Paraguay, South America.

Like basil and oregano, stevia is merely an herb.

A small amount of stevia goes a long way; too much is bitter, while a small amount is sweet.

Stevia has been used in South American countries as a sweet tasting herb for over 1,500 years.

Most every country around the world has used stevia as a sweetener for decades.

Stevia is used in other countries to treat gum disease and as a treatment for diabetes.

The Japanese make aspartame, but they have used stevia as their sweetener of choice for over 40 years.

Stevia is 250-300 times sweeter than sugar.

Stevia may improve the function of cells required for insulin production.

Stevia has been proven to regulate blood sugar.

Stevia has been reported to possess anti-viral qualities.

Stevia may actually help prevent dental cavities. Two tests conducted by Purdue University's Dental Science Research Group have concluded that Stevioside (the glycoside in stevia leaves) is both fluoride compatible and "significantly" inhibits the development of plaque.

Stevia has never been shown to cause brain tumors, seizures, blindness, or any of the other 92 adverse reactions associated with aspartame use.

Unlike aspartame, stevia reduces the craving for sweets, making it the ideal sweetener for a society desperate to lose weight.

Stevia contains antiseptic properties, which have proven beneficial in accelerating the healing process of skin wounds.
