What is Stevia?

Stevia is a natural sugar substitute that is filled with multiple beneficial properties. Derived from the leaves of a particular plant species known as “Stevia Rebaudiana”; Stevia has an old history. Its true dynamism was discovered by the ingenious warrior clan known as “Guarani Indians”. They were the natives of South America (resided by the rain forest region) and were aware of the advantages of what they called “sweet shrub”. Stevia is not only used for sweetening the food and drinks but also used medicinally for issues like cardiotonic, Obesity, Hypertension, Heartburn, and to help lower uric acid levels.
