Why buy sweet stevia?
Stevia is a herb from the Asteraceae family native to South America. The valuable properties of the plant were first described by the scientist Stevus, after whose name the herb was later named. It contains no calories and is 250-350 times sweeter than regular sugar. There are no toxic substances in it, and the steviol glycosides in the leaves provide a sweet taste.
It is also worth buying a sweetener because of the low glycemic index, which is zero in the sweet herb and has no effect on blood glucose levels. It can be added to food and drinks for people with diabetes, people with cardiovascular diseases, ischemia, pancreatic pathologies.
Who needs to buy a sweetener?
Proper nutrition is recommended not only to people with pathologies. Natural stevia is recommended for those people who:
- Lead a healthy lifestyle. We are talking about physical activity and proper nutrition. Sports activities, refusal of fatty, fried, sweet foods have a positive effect on well-being. In this case, you don’t need to follow a strict diet and avoid sweet dishes.
- Keep track of weight and want to be slimmer. Stevia contains no calories and reduces hunger, normalizes metabolic processes, and helps break down fats. Substances in its composition increase the sensitivity of cells to insulin, thereby stimulating the production of lipoprotein lipase, which dissolves fats in the body.
- Love sweets and cannot live without them. For example, children and pregnant women. The herb extract has no contraindications, so sweets with stevia can be given to babies after consulting a doctor. Indeed, in addition to sweet taste, stevia increases the child’s immunity and the body’s resistance to infectious diseases. Scientists have also studied the benefits and harms of stevia during pregnancy, and the results have proven that it is entirely safe.
- Suffer from increased swelling. You can buy stevia sweetener and use it as a diuretic. Thus, the body will get rid of excess fluid, which, while accumulating, becomes the cause of fatigue, high blood pressure, and disruption of the digestive system.
Stevia is also worth purchasing for people with diabetes. But when buying sugar substitutes for diabetics, it is important to remember about individual tolerance.
