Stevia: An All-Natural Alternative to Sugar

Stevia LeafHere at AquaHealth we are proud to offer premium healthy beverages in a multitude of exciting flavors. Containing little to no calories, flavors such as Lemon Lime, Kiwi-Strawberry, and Raspberry taste great, without including the 40 grams of sugar that is present in a glass of juice.  One of the sweeteners we are proud to offer is stevia, an all-natural sweetener that is derived from the Stevia plant native to South America. Stevia’s popularity is exploding because it is unique among sweeteners, as it is both natural and calorie-free.

           Lemon-Lime       Raspberry       Kiwi-Strawberry             
Stevia, also known as the “sweet herb of Paraguay”, has been used safely as a sweetener for centuries in South America. As well, since ancient times it has been used medicinally in that region of the world. In more recent times, Stevia became popular among the Japanese in the 1970’s as a healthy, all-natural alternative to sugar.

If you are wondering whether stevia is safe to consume, take heart, as there have been no recent studies that have shown stevia to be dangerous. On the flipside, there is some evidence that stevia can reduce your risk of heart disease, and increase your levels of good cholesterol.

If your looking for a healthy alternative to sugar that is made naturally, stevia might be the answer. Which is why we are proud to offer stevia in our line of healthy beverage products!

Healthy Living: How to Unlock your Creative Gene

Healthy LivingFor many of us, finding that extra edge when it comes too healthy living is imperative in our daily life. Consuming protein shakes, practicing yoga, and eating power foods are just a few of the practices that people focused on healthy living sometimes undertake to gain that “extra edge.” However, did you know that one of those “extra edges” could be gained simply by exercising regularly? 

According to a recent research study published in the Frontiers of Human Neuroscience, exercising on a regular basis acts as a cognitive enhancer that can boost your creativity! The study found that people who exercised regularly consistently did better on creativity tests than people who did not. They summarized their research findings by stating, “The findings suggest that acute exercise may affect both, divergent and convergent thinking.”

Healthy LivingCreativity isn’t the only thing about your brain that is affected by regular physical activity. Other studies have shown that children and teenagers who are physically active have higher test scores on average. As well, having high blood pressure in your brain can lead to a drop in cognitive ability. Since regular exercise reduces blood pressure, your brain, as well your body can get a boost from hitting the gym.

Next time you have a mind block, instead of stubbornly thinking the problem to death, consider taking a break to work out your muscles. You may be surprised when that "eureka" moment happens as you are riding your bike or finishing that last rep.

If you ever needed another reason to make physical activity a part of your weekly healthy living regimen, here it is! Exercising regularly can make you smarter and more creative!
