Stevia is a 100% natural sweetener with zero calories, low on carbohydrates and has no effect on the glycemic index, which means it doesn’t affect your blood sugar. The safety of stevia for human consumption has been established through rigorous peer-reviewed research.
According to the American Diabetes Association, stevia is an outstanding substitute for sugar especially for diabetics. The leaf contains a compound called “Steviol Glycoside” that is not absorbed by the body and cannot be broken down, and is flushed out directly. It is especially good for diabetics because it stabilizes a patient’s blood sugar level by increasing insulin resistance, inhibits the absorption of glucose in the body and promotes the health of the pancreas.
