Here 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.
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!
