Stevia has been used as a completely natural product in
South America for thousands of years, and used as a trade product
in Asia and Europe for centuries. Its appearance in North America
has been delayed because of the interests of the sugar, pharmaceutial
and chemical companies.
Production problems in North America were another factor due to
climate. Researcher 42 a researcher in chemistry and biology or the
stevia plant has largely solved these problems. The problems that
have arisen are being solved at our facilities in Lavington BC with
a deep and full commitment to ongoing research. It is interesting
to note he is not a promoter but a person deeply involved since 1981
in bringing stevia to the marketplace. Stevia is relatively new to
the North American marketplace and lacks the promotion of other herbal
products, but it has huge potential, and once the promoters get hold
of stevia it will be very where, and all at once.
Specific health benefits are being researched
in North America, because we are known to do lots of research I to
anything new, and therefore we are discovering things so far unknown
about the benefits of stevia. Whereas other countries have just welcomed
stevia as a natural plant source of unique bioflavnoids. Current
research on blood sugar control ( diabetes, hypoglycemia, hyperactivity
and attention deficit disorder ) continues, as will as antiseptic,
antifungal and the effects on Candida are being researched and reported
on. While stevia in the green powdered form and extracts may be sold
in North America as a food supplement and herbal dietary supplement,
it must be promoted for its bioflavonoid properties with no mention
as a sweetener of sugar or artificial sweetener replacement. While
the medicinal properties are being researched at this time no health
benefits can be claimed.
Stevia is known to contain and is a good natural
source of : chromium, manganese, selenium, silicon, Vitamin A, iron,
niacin, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, thiamine, Vitamin C, and
zinc, this may be in a form that the body can readily assimilate,
namely in the ( certified ) organic form, containing no chemical,
fungicides, herbicides or pesticides.
