We have all read about the damaging effects of refined sugar and artificial sweeteners, which has led to a greater awareness of natural sweetener options.
Stevia is one of the top five, preferred natural sweeteners, due to its taste, zero calorie count and numerous health benefits. This is why the Natural Health Company uses Stevia as one of two natural sweeteners, found in our natural weight loss and weight management products.
Assists in Weight Loss: Stevia contains no calories, and has been known to reduce cravings for fatty foods.
Anti-Aging Benefits: Retinoic Acid is a compound present in Stevia that may slow down the progression of wrinkles, by inhibiting the breakdown of collagen and elastin cells.
Clear Skin: Stevia is full of anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory compounds and can assist with problem acne, when the extract is added directly to a blemish and left overnight. It will dry away blemishes, with regular use.
Healthy Teeth & Gums: Due to its anti-bacterial properties, Stevia assists with preventing bacteria on the gums.
Lowers Blood Sugar Levels: Stevia has been used as a sugar substitute, for those with high blood sugar levels, as it is not absorbed and cannot be broken down, and is flushed out of the body.
Natural Health Company uses a combination of natural sweeteners, Stevia & Thaumatin, in their product range, including Body Shape, Diet Slim and Organic Fusion, but like any other sweetener, natural sweeteners should be used in moderation, and this is why all Natural Health Company products are all low in sugar.
