Stevia, used for over 1500 years, is 100x sweeter than sugar with no calories!

Is there another plant on our earth like Stevia? Well after 1,500 years of use in Paraguay we think Stevia has stood the test of time. The leaves are a delicious and nutritious food, a fantastic no calorie sweetener, an incredible external and internal medicine, and when gently extracted into a tea, is wonderful for smoothing wrinkles, softening and beautifying the skin and healing blemishes and sores.

The active photochemical in stevia leaves, stevioside, is at least one hundred times sweeter than sugar. Stevia is an exceptional aid in weight loss and weight management as it contains no calories and reduces cravings for sweets, fatty foods and appetite when 10 or 15 drops are taken 20 minutes before meals. Stevia may even reset the hunger mechanisms in people where the pathway between the hypothalamus and the stomach has become obstructed.

 Stevia tea or to make a concentrate to sweeten any meal where you may otherwise use sugar.

  1. Place 1/2 teaspoon of dried stevia in a teapot or saucepan.
