Stevia - sweetener # 1 for healthy and diabetic nutrition

Without sugar it is difficult to imagine the life of a modern person. The desire to eat something sweet and delicious comes from us in early childhood. Nothing changes in adult life: many still prefer to pass the evening, tasting delicious cakes or an appetizing biscuit cake. During the consumption of sugar, endorphins( hormones of joy) are produced, that's why from the buns and donuts we have such amazingly quick mood and life seems beautiful and cloudless.

Two sides of the same coin

All the familiar name "sugar" in the scientific world has a slightly different name - sucrose. Normal blood glucose - 80-120 mg per 100 ml. There are cases when glucose intake is vital for a person. For example, the introduction of glucose into a vein is practiced by many doctors for poisoning or the development of liver diseases. It is she who can support the barrier function of the liver.

There are times when excessive consumption of sugar adversely affects the health of a person. For example, with diabetes. Sometimes elevated levels of glucose in the blood lead to problems such as cardiovascular, nervous system, dysbacteriosis, obesity, skin formation.

If a person is predisposed to a disease, then sugar can be one of the reasons, so to speak, a catalyst for the development of these diseases. For example, this applies to people who are predisposed to diabetes mellitus.

Glucose, necessary for the body, as a source of energy, is transported to cells by insulin. In people with diabetes, this process is disrupted because of a lack of hormone peptide nature. Glucose remains in the blood, not getting into the cells. There is an unnatural "sugaring" and the defeat of all vital systems of the body.

These are the two sides of the same coin. On the one hand, sugar gives us strength, on the other - not always useful for the body. The existing preconditions laid the foundation for the development of sugar substitutes. It was these substances that were called to replace sugar as the most important energy source in those cases when it was necessary.

In search of a unique sweetener

Sugar substitutes can be:

  • synthetic - aspartame, saccharin, suklamate;
  • natural - xylitol, sorbitol, fructose.

Artificial sweeteners, with all their convenience and ease of use, in some cases are capable of exerting negative effects on the body. Therefore, some of them are banned for use in the food industry. For example, in the United States since 1981, saccharin was banned, and on the packaging an inscription was written about the harm to health. Natural substitutes are not recommended for diabetics, as they raise the level of sugar in the blood.

Many years of research in search of a useful substitute for sugar led to the fact that Stevia, a honey herb that contains sweet glycosides( steviosides), which beneficially affects all vital systems of the human body, should take a worthy place in the diet of healthy and diabetic nutrition.

Stevia - a food of the modern person

Homeland of Stevia is considered Central and South America. In the wild, Stevia can be found even in Mexico. The grass grows on plains or mountain slopes. Stevia reproduces by seeds, but very many of them die. Therefore, to obtain a good harvest, Stevia is cultivated. The leaves of this plant are sweeter than sugar 10-15 times, and the extract is 100-300 times.

With the constant use of products containing steviosides( glycoside from Stevia extract), a positive effect on the body is noted:

  • regulation of blood glucose;
  • increase of vascular strength;
  • increased insulin synthesis;
  • reduction of allergic reactions;
  • weight reduction;
  • normalization of blood pressure;
  • strengthening of immunity.

Stevia leaves contain glycosides, amino acids, essential oils, polyunsaturated fatty acids, pectins, vitamins B1, B2, C, E. Stevia has an anti-allergic, sedative, diuretic, choleretic effect. Regular use of herbs helps to strengthen immunity.

Stevia is recommended as a preventive and complex treatment for diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular system, oral cavity, respiratory system. Also, with psychoemotional disorders, the use of Stevia has a positive effect.

In 1990, at the 9th World Symposium on Diabetes and Longevity, held in China, Stevia was awarded a gold prize. The world has learned that there is such a medicinal herb that is capable of increasing the level of bioenergetic capabilities of a person.

Stevia leaves extract is universal in cooking. It can be added to pastries, cereals, desserts, salads, any beverages, and also used for canning.

The right choice of products with stevioside

Currently, many suppliers of this product have appeared on the Russian market. To make the right choice, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the quality of the product based on Stevia extracts depends on:

  • Qualities of raw materials.(Depends on the conditions of care of the plant, as well as on the zone of Stevia growth, the way of harvesting and harvesting raw materials).Quality of processing of finished raw materials.(Since at the initial stage, the leaves feel bitter, the quality of the processing of raw materials directly affects the taste properties of the final product.) Bitterness decreases due to an increase in the percentage of rebaudioside).

Stevia Industries Ltd. uses high-tech equipment for the selection and processing of raw materials. Therefore, the company's products are of the highest quality.

The company represents a line of natural sugar substitutes:

  • in liquid form in bottles with a dropper;
