STEVIA / SWEET HERB is an extract from Stevia rebaudiana, having up to 300 times the sweetness of sugar. Stevia has garnered attention with the rise in demand for low-carbohydrate, low-sugar food alternatives. Medical research has also shown possible benefits of stevia in treating obesity and high blood pressure. Because stevia has a negligible effect on blood glucose, it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets.  In addition, the stevia plant contains plentiful levels of magnesium – a nutrient in which many diabetics are lacking – and stevia promotes a higher level of efficiency of insulin uptake and action in the body.

RESEARCH
A double-blind placebo-controlled study of the effectiveness and tolerability of oral stevioside in human hypertension showed that oral stevioside is a well-tolerated and effective modality and may be considered as an alternative or supplementary therapy for patients with hypertension. Chan, P, "A double-blind placebo-controlled study of the effectiveness and tolerability of oral stevioside in human hypertension."  Br J Clin Pharmacol. 2000 Sep; 50(3): 215–220. DOI:  10.1046/j.1365-2125.2000.00260.x

A study showed stevia extract highly effective in killing all morphologic forms of Borrelia burgdorferi in vitro.

A research study showed that Stevioside proved to be as effective as the antidiabetic agent, rosiglitazone, at enhancing glucose uptake in normal 3T3-L1 adipocytes or in cells induced to insulin resistance via exposure to TNF-α.  Mohd-Radzman, NH, "Stevioside from Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni Increases Insulin Sensitivity in 3T3-L1 Adipocytes" Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Volume 2013 (2013), Article ID 938081, 8 pages. http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2013/938081


PATIENT REPORTS

"I've been addicted to sugar since I was 5.  My doctor told me that I was going into pre-diabetes and that I better make a change.  He told me about NutraMedix Stevia – that it wasn't a fractured, processed version of the Stevia plant.  He said that it came from the plant as a whole food and that's been my goal ever since – to get healthy by eating whole foods and no sugar.  I'm proud to say I've lost 50 pounds and I no longer crave sugar.  This Stevia is really good."  -R.M.

SUGGESTED DOSAGE

Add 3 or more drops as desired to food or beverages.  As an antimicrobial, use 30 drops twice daily.  NutraMedix Stevia contains no added sugars.
