The Safety of Stevia (Stevioside)
Stevia is an excellent choice if you are looking for a safe dietary supplement that can cut down
your intake of sugar and artificial sweeteners. You really don’t need to add sugar to your teas or coffee,
or other things for that matter, because Stevia is so much better tasting, and has no negative effects on
the glycemic index. It is also free of calories and carbohydrates along with fat free.
And since it does not alter your blood sugar it is an excellent choice for diabetics, too. Stevia, or Stevioside,
although long sold in Japan, China, and in many countries around the world as a table top sweetener, and
sugar replacement, is sold in the USA only as a dietary supplement, due to FDA rules.

Organic Stevia leaves which has been milled into a fine powder are perfect to stuff into capsules to take as a dietary supplement. Or for a natural sweetener that is healthy add to your favorite protein drinks and smoothies, juices, or water to prepare your own teas, tinctures or extracts.
