  • HerbAid - Stevia
    alternative to sugar while others have health concerns about it on the basis of laboratory research which suggests the need for further study The stevia plant is a perennial shrub native to Paraguay and Brazil Native Americans in these regions realized that the leaves were sweet and used them to season teas and other foods The plant is also sometimes called sweetleaf or sugarleaf in a reference to the natural sweetness held in the leaves As Europeans began to explore the foods consumed by Native Americans they were introduced to stevia In the 1930s chemists in France isolated stevioside the compound in the leaves that is responsible for their sweetness This compound is sometimes sold isolated from the leaves in a highly refined form In other cases the sweetener is made by crushing or distilling the leaves of the plant to form a powder or a syrup with an intensely sweet flavor It has been shown that stevia is much sweeter than other sugars meaning that only a small amount needs to be used The body also processes stevia very slowly which greatly reduces the risk of a sugar high In addition it is essentially calorie free which is why it is popular with dieters Research also suggests that this sweetener may be safe for diabetics although diabetics should always consult their doctors about additions to their diet which may alter their blood sugar Although stevia sounds like a miracle herb scientific research may suggest otherwise Some scientists are concerned that it may be a mutagen meaning that it could cause cancer Stevia has also been linked to reproductive malfunction Some of these studies have been imperfectly performed but the need for more thorough analysis of the compound has certainly been demonstrated Proponents suggest that these studies may be part

  • HerbAid - Lavender farmers rebel against EU chemical rules
