I have been using Stevia now for a couple of years. The first year my doctor noticed that my cholesterol count was very good..I am on 5mg of Crestor but had been on that for a few years so this was new. Today I got my results for my 3rd doplar test. It seems my veins are unclogging themselves! They said I had improved which astounded me...I did not know your body could heal itself of this. I had noticed that my toes were not cold when I was x/country skiing 2 weeks ago and was out in very cold weather. I had seen an article once in the Zoomer magazine but it seems to be being kept quiet. I wonder why?

good. but i think the combo of exercise, crestor and the stevia. stevia is actually more sweet, but you use less to get the same taste of processed, which more would be used. i am a diabetic, long term, and stevia is alright, but in small doses my friend. keep well.

Thank you Happy Turtle. I have just done some research and apparently this may be due more to the use of Crestor than Stevia. It seems they are very excited about these findings and that they did not think plaque reversal was possible but are finding it is not only possible can be reversed to zero. This does not work for everyone but I guess I must be one of those that it is working for or maybe mine was caught in time...don't know. Re the Stevia, what is a small amount? I use it in my tea which is 3 times a day...I don't cook with it or anything like that.

As far as anything I have ever read about Stevia it is made of a plant leaf, not sugar, that is the whole point of using it. It comes in packets and I use the entire packet ....not sure what you are saying here about not feeding the humans...

not feeding the humans is apart of my signature, not indicitive of your or anyones posts.

stevia, from the plant leaf, yes, correct. me wrong, but they can be 200-600 times more sweeter per tea spoon full.

Yes, that is why they are measured out in packets...a very small amount goes a long way...what I was trying to find out from Happy Turtle was how much would be considered a small amount (i.e.a safe amount)...that is why I said how many times I use it a day...maybe 3-4 packets a day.

I have been using stevia for 11 years, and have had no negative effects. I use it to bake sweet type desserts with, and in my tea, lemonade, etc. It is, according to my research, 20 times sweeter than sugar. The brand I use comes with a mini-spoon that equals a teaspoon of sugar so you can easily substitute. I use drops for cold beverages since the powder doesn't dissolve well in cold liquids. If you get too much it is almost unbearable, so I sneak up on it when trying it in something new. Beware of different brands, especially those in packets as they tend to have other ingredients that are not very good. Typically they are sugar additives, so if you are trying to avoid sugar you many be getting it without knowing. Also beware of stevia-like brands (i.e. Truvia), which have been formulated so that they can be patented and may not be as healthy as pure stevia. Stevia comes from a green leafed plant and does not contain any sugar.
