Obesity

According to the World Health Organization the global epidemic of overweight and obesity “globesity” is rapidly becoming a major public health problem in many parts of the world. The good news is that there are food-products, like STEVIA, that can help you manage your calories while still getting the sweet flavour you’re looking for. Studies show that consumers around the world are unaware of the amount of sugar they are eating. For example, the average American unknowingly consumes around 26 teaspoons a day, which are 650 calories.

If you are on a diet, sugar is possibly one of your worst enemies. In the quest to find an alternative to satiate your sweet cravings, you have probably tried everything out there. But did you know that STEVIA can help your body in a number of ways, other than just to satiate your sweet cravings or weight loss.
STEVIA aids in faster weight loss, it contains no calories, is a sweetener that can be used in any amount without the bitter taste of other artificial sweeteners.

The good thing about stevia is that it can be used in baked and cooked products as the glycosides present in it, do not break down when cooked. An added advantage of this leaf is that it has the capability of reducing one’s cravings for fatty foods and suppresses hunger. In order to use stevia in everyday cooking, add the extract or the leaf to your daily diet to satiate your cravings.
