Stevia and Blue Agave Top Recommendations From Dr. Oz For Weight Loss And Diabetics
Dr Oz from ABC show ran a segment on weight loss recently. The patient he was working with was addicted to sugar and need to eliminate sugar from her diet. The patient was reported to be addicted to sugar using over 5 packets of sugar at a time. Dr. Oz recommended two natural sweetener products for her to use : Blue Agave and Stevia.

Diabetes and obesity statistics around the world are extremely high. The food industry has been spinning off healthier foods as a proactive trend that started over a decade ago. Today, the terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are consumers’ preferred terms in healthy food.

Organic Blue Agave- this natural sweetener extracted from the heart of the Blue Agave plant has been consumed for thousands of years. It is sweeter than regular sugar and Agave is a low glycemic Index (GI) sweetener. It is slowly absorbed into the body preventing spikes of blood sugar, so a little goes a long way. Use this delicacy instead of table sugar or for baking.

Stevia based sweeteners offer a combination of positive benefits: natural, high intensity, and zero calories and zero carbs. Stevia-based high purity sweeteners are natural. Stevia is 200-300 times stronger than table sugar and has been a proven product for weight loss and diabetic patients.

Application for this sweetener is growing everyday and this natural sweetener has both favorable physical and functional benefits. Natural stevia-based sweeteners are compatible for use in a wide array of foods, beverages, and dietary supplements. Artificial sweeteners with aspartame and sugar are likely to be the main substitution targets for emerging stevia sweeteners, and beverages will be the initial main application.

In the US the FDA only granted the first no objection letters for Reb-A’s (Rebaudioside –A) use in foods in December 2008 to Cargill. Until then, dried stevia leaves and extracts could only be used in dietary supplements (since 1995). In addition, stevia is expected to be used as a part substitute for sugar and also used in combination with other artificial sweeteners in the emerging phase of lifecycle.
Stevia RA 97 is now recognized as a natural sweetener and not just a dietary supplement. This will bring stevia to main stream quickly.

All of our flavor drops use a hint of stevia to enhance the flavoring and not sweeten it. Try our natural liquid stevia sweetener and see why this product is gaining in popularity.

Dr. Oz knows all about the benefits and attributes of both blue gave and natural stevia.
