Stevia

Stevia

Stevia is an all-natural sweetener derived from the stevia plant. Contains zero sugar, zero calories, and zero other macronutrients. Up to 300 times sweeter than sugar. Let’s break this down a bit; when we smell food our digestive system gets moving and starts secreting enzymes to get ready for the incoming food. Whatever you taste; whether it be sweet, bitter, or spicy — especially sweet foods — our bodies release insulin. The amount of insulin released is different depending on the quantity of food you’re consuming – in this case, with using stevia it may be a very small amount.
