Diabetes and Stevia

Stevia (STEE-vee-uh) is a sweet herb that contains trace minerals and nutrients, when used as a whole leaf. Stevia is 300 times sweeter than sugar and does not have any negative side effects, including calories, carbohydrates, tooth decay or Diabetic problems. In fact, Stevia is the preferred sweeter among diabetics because it does not raise blood glucose levels or require insulin to process. Stevia actually normalizes the body’s response to glucose, making it actual therapy for Diabetics.
