The dried leaves of Stevia contain the natural compounds Stevioside and Rebaudioside, which are estimated to be between 200 to 400 times sweeter than sugar. But unlike sugar, Stevia sweetens without calories! It does not promote toothe decay. This is probably due to the high content of flouride and other minerals.

Stevia has been used by the native South Americans to treat diabetes, because of its ability to lower the blood sugar level. They also use it to treat high blood pressure.

This natural sweetener is used legally in South America, China and Japan, where it has undergone extensive safety testing. Found to be safe, without any health risk, Stevia is widely used as a food additive in candy, soft drinks and ice cream, rather than sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Stevia is currently available in the United States, only as a dietary supplement or skin care formula.
