Besides being a natural replacement for refined sugar, stevia may be of use to those with blood sugar problems. Unlike refined sugar, it does not increase blood sugar levels. Numerous studies have shown that Stevia is promising against type 2 diabetes, regulating insulin and relieving the dependence on insulin. Other studies have reported that it may have the ability to reduce blood pressure and regulate pancreas functioning, thus aiding digestion and appetite. Regular consumption of the plant reduces appetite and the craving of sweets and greasy foods. Furthermore, stevia also has a fungicide effect, making it effective in the fight against fungal infections; it may even help cure foot fungus. Stevia is also ideal for Candida sufferes because it does not feed intestinal fungus or other microorganisms. It also has antibiotic properties, thus helping to treat bacterial lesions in the mouth, especially cavities and gum disease. Stevia also contains a significant amount of certain minerals (vitamins A and C, zinc, routine, magnesium, iron, etc.).
