Sweetness from Nature
Native to the sub-tropics of Central America and Asia, the stevia plant is a perennial shrub also known as “sweet leaf.” For centuries, people have used the tiny, unassuming leaves of the stevia plant as a natural sweetener, chewing them on their own for their pleasant, sweet taste.
How is stevia both sweet and calorie-free? It naturally contains steviocide, a white, powdery non-caloric substance that is said to be 100-400 times sweeter than table sugar! A popular substitute for those with weight management routines, Piping Rock’s alcohol-free Liquid Sweeter Stevia adds sweetness to any dish without adding calories!

Stevia – A Natural Sweetener With Proven Health Benefits
Refined sugar is incredibly harmful.For this reason, people are looking for healthy alternatives.
There are many low-calorie sweeteners on the market, but most of them are artificial.However, there are a few natural sweeteners out there that taste just as good.One of these is stevia, a sweetener that has become immensely popular in recent years.
Stevia is a 100% natural, zero calorie sweetener with a number of health benefits that have been confirmed in human studies.
What is Stevia?
Stevia is a green, leafy plant that is native to South America.
It has been used for medicinal purposes for many centuries. The plant has also been bred for its strong, sweet flavor and used as a sweetener.
The two major sweet compounds that are isolated from the leaves are called Stevioside and Rebaudioside A. These two compounds are hundreds of times sweeter than sugar.
Here is an important point… most of the studies use stevioside, the isolated sweet compound. It would be hard to reach pharmacologically active doses of stevioside just by using stevia as a sweetener. It is only about 10% stevioside, by weight.
People often confuse stevia with another sweetener called Truvia, but they are not the same. Truvia is a blend of compounds, one of which is extracted from stevia leaves.
Studies Show That Stevia Can Lower Blood Pressure
Elevated blood pressure is a major risk factor for many serious diseases.
This includes heart disease, stroke and kidney failure.
Studies have shown that taking stevioside (one of the sweet compounds in stevia) as a supplement can reduce blood pressure.
Type II diabetes is currently one of the biggest health problems in the world.
It is characterized by elevated blood sugar in the context of insulin resistance or an inability to produce insulin.
Stevia has been studied in diabetic patients with impressive results.Stevioside appears to improve function of the hormone insulin, helping to lower blood sugar levels. This may be useful for people with type 2 diabetes.
Other Health Benefits
Stevia has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, diuretic and immunomodulatory effects
Is Stevia Safe?
Stevia has an outstanding safety profile and no adverse effects have been reported in the human studies.
Different Types of Stevia Sweeteners
There are many different types of stevia. The problem is that some of them taste bad.
Therefore, getting the right kind is absolutely essential.
Look for a brand that is organic, has no unnatural additives and has good flavor.
How to Use it
Stevia can be used in many ways.
You can add it to your smoothie, yogurt, tea, coffee and other beverages. It is also a good sugar substitute for baking.
Since you can buy it in liquid and powder form, it’s more convenient to use the liquid form for beverages and the powder for baking.
When using it in recipes, keep in mind that it is incredibly potent.
1 teaspoon of stevia extract can have a similar sweetening power as a whole cup of sugar, but this can vary between brands.
Take Home Message
Stevia is perhaps the only sweetener that is not just “not harmful,” but has actual health benefits.
It has no calories, is 100% natural, and if you choose the the right one then it also tastes like a million bucks.
Stevia is the king of sweeteners.
