Diabetes or sugar disease makes life very dull, but nature has also provided a product that can be the best alternative to harmful sugar.
Stevia, also known as candy leaf, is naturally sweetened and can be used as a sugar substitute. It is a zero calorie dessert.
Stevia is perfectly safe to consume in moderate amounts.
Various studies have shown that stevia can lower blood pressure.
Stevia also lowers LDL cholesterol and may help prevent heart disease.
However, it has some disadvantages, so medical experts say that diabetics, or those who want to avoid sugar carefully, should consult a doctor before using stevia.
