I was discussing with a client of mine about sweeteners side effects and which one is the healthiest one.
The market, as we all know, is full of different brands and we’ve heard a lot about the prons and cos of using all these sugar substitutes!
Splenda is a very good brand made of sucralose which can be also be taken by pregnant and breastfeeding women because it directly goes out of the body so it is not harmful for anyone!
STEVIA is organic, extracted from leaves of very refreshing sweet taste and excellent health promoting qualities, and completely non-toxic!
Plus the herb is nutrient rich, containing substantial amounts of protein, calcium, phosphorous, sodium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin C, and other nutrients, with ZERO CALORIE!
Unlike other sweeteners, Stevia do not cause cravings for sweets and fatty foods!
Stevia has been used successfully by diabetics and those suffering from hypoglycemia and it has been prescribed by physicians in Paraguay in the treatment of diabetes and high blood pressure .
There is more!!
The Stevia leaf extract can be used as a facial mask by smoothing its liquid over the entire face, allowing it to dry for 30-60 minutes, then rinsing. This will help tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles.
Stevia is 10 to 15 times sweetener than sugar.
STEVIA, the natural replacement for sugar, aspartame and acesulfame K, has been tested around the world and found to be completely non-toxic!
Industrial research in Japan has shown that Stevia and Stevioside extracts are extremely heat stable in a variety of everyday cooking and baking.
So it is a great option for cooking!
