Studies say artificial sweetener cause people to crave more sweet & food carbs & result in wgt gain, higher sugar. True 4 natural sweetener stevia also?
Not so with Stevia: No. A study I found (http://www. Sciencedirect. Com/science/article/pii/S0195666310000826) showed that with Stevia, there was no craving. Also, there was no increase in insulin levels, unlike with aspartame, which is important regarding the issue of insulin resistance. Hope that helps.
No problem: The artificial sweeteners are all pretty much interchangable from a medical standpoint. Pick which ever one tastes best to you. Some cannot be used in cooking. Who knows what "too much" means? Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.
No, but. . .: Stevia liquid 25% sounds like it is part stevia and part other things. Stevia is a sweetener made from the sweet species stevia rebaudiana. It is much sweeter than sugar, and does not add calories or carbohydrates to the food. Stevia is considered quite safe to use, but as with any non-regulated dietary supplement, dose/purity/side-effects/etc... May vary between brands and batches of product.See 1 more doctor answer
Natural sweetener: Stevia is a plant-based sugar substitute that has no calories. The term “stevia” refers to Stevia rebaudiana, which is a South American plant. Only certain parts of the plant are sweet. Highly purified extracts from the leaves of the plant are called “steviol glycosides.” They are 200 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. It can be bought at many groceries.See 2 more doctor answers

It isn't: Neither is good or bad in small amounts. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.
Non-commital: Stevia is not healthy nor non-healthy. It is a sugar substitute and may help people in controlling their intake of sugar. Moderation is generally a good idea. We do not know the long term effects.
Stevia: It is not a common cause of bowel irritation but it could happen. I suggest that you get a small supply and see that it is OK. If it turns out not to be OK, you will probably get back to normal soon after you stop taking it.
Not exactly: Purevia is a brand of sweetener based on stevia, which means purevia contains stevia extract, but also contains other things. Stevia is a family of plants, so the word means different things, depending on what one is talking about.
Not really.: Stevia is a plant extract which is an artificial sweetener (food additive, not a medication). Using this to sweeten foods and drinks instead of sugar will make for less of a glucose elevation, but it is not an actual treatment. A 'treatment' for diabetes is a medication that actively lowers the blood sugar level.
