Ingredients & DescriptionAuthor Rita Elkins presents valuable research on the health benefits of Stevia, a natural sweetener, in this book from Woodland Health Books. Stevia is a natural herb that is currently being researched as an alternative non-caloric sweetener. This may be especially beneficial for those who have diabetes and other blood-sugar disorders.
The body doesn't metabolize the sweet glycosides from Stevia, which prohibits the body from absorbing any calories from Stevia. Stevia doesn't adversely affect blood glucose levels, which makes it an effective and safe sweetener for diabetics.
