Anti-diabetic property of Steviol Glycosides

Stevia contains compounds called Steviol glycosides, which give stevia its sweet taste,Steviol glycosides are approximately 200-300 times sweeter than regular sugar (sucrose), This extreme sweetness is due to the presence of two compounds: stevioside and rebaudioside.

These extracts have been used in the traditional treatment of diabetes in Paraguay and Brazil.

In recent studies, anti-diabetic effect of steviosides has been proved beyond doubt.

Steviosides

  • Improves glucose tolerance

  • Enhances insulin secretion

  • Reduces glycogen breaking hormones

In recent research work it was proved that Steviol Glycosides stimulates the pancreatic b-cells to secreate more insulin and exerts antidiabetic effect

Stevia extracts might have direct insulinotropic and anti-hyperglycaemic effects in type 2 diabetes. Compared to artificial sweeteners, stevia can suppress the plasma glucose levels and raise your glucose tolerance. Stevia also has zero calories, which makes it highly beneficial for people seeking to lower their glucose levels.

Glucagon, a hormone, produced by alpha cells of the pancreas, helps raise the glucose level in the bloodstream. Stevia has been found to prompt a glucagon response and reduce blood glucose. With reduced levels of glucagon, Glycogenolysis and Gluconeogenesis is decelerated, which means that the production of glucose is decreased by the liver. Eventually this results in lower amounts of glucose being released into the blood plasma.

(Gluconeogenesis  is the metabolic process by which organisms produce  glucose. It takes place in muscle and liver cells)

(Glycogenolysis is the breakdown of glycogen into glucose, a simple sugar that the body uses to produce energy.)

 Steviosides are also known to stimulate insulin secretion as it has a direct impact on the pancreatic beta cells. Its most important biological function is opening the calcium channels in the  beta cells, which stimulates insulin production in response to glucose (Momtazi-Borojeni, 2017). And as we all know insulin plays a direct role in regulating the blood sugar level and storing the excess glucose in the liver and fat cells.

To summarize, stevia extracts, the zero calorie natural sweeteners, go way beyond their sweetening characteristics and may also offer other health benefits, especially to people who have type 2 diabetes.

The health benefits of stevia are based on a particular limit of consumption. Using stevia extracts in small amounts may not have any significant impact on blood glucose level.
