INDULGE YOUR SWEET TOOTH THE HEALTHY WAY WITH OUR NEW
ENZYMATICALLY ENHANCED FOR IMPROVED FLAVOR!
Most Americans eat more sugar than they realize. In fact, according to the American Heart Association, the average American consumes an average of 77 grams of sugar per day – well over twice the recommended amount. While cutting down on excess sugar can definitely help improve your overall health and well-being, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your sugar cravings entirely.
The Health Ranger Store is proud to bring you Groovy Bee® Organic Stevia Extract Powder. The perfect alternative to processed sugar, our stevia extract has been enzymatically enhanced to remove the bitter aftertaste of regular stevia. Because it is much sweeter than regular table sugar, you only need to use a fraction of the amount you would normally use to achieve the same sweetness. Use it to enhance your favorite smoothies, shakes, baked goods, desserts and other recipes. This natural sweetener is vegan, non-GMO and certified organic and Kosher. It contains no gluten or calories and is lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
A member of the Asteraceae family, the Stevia rebaudiana plant is a close relative of ragweed, chrysanthemums and marigolds. It is one of the sweetest plants to ever be discovered. For centuries, the natives of Brazil and Paraguay have harvested the sweet-tasting leaves of the stevia plant to enhance the flavor their local foods and beverages. These leaves contain eight glycosides, such as stevioside, steviolbioside, dulcoside A and rebaudiosides A, C, D, E, and F. It’s these components that make stevia naturally sweet.
While the stevia plant is native to South America and Native America, it has recently been cultivated in other countries, due to stevia’s growing popularity as an all-natural sugar substitute. It is estimated that stevia extract is around 200 to 300 times sweeter than regular table sugar. This means that you can get the same level of sweetness of regular sugar with just a small amount of stevia. Plus, pure stevia extract naturally contains no calories, fat, sodium or sugars. Instead, it contains trace amounts of antioxidant flavonoids and phenols. Not to mention, it is estimated to have a glycemic load of zero.
The only downside is that raw stevia leaf extract is known to have a bitter aftertaste resembling licorice. That’s why Groovy Bee® Organic Stevia Extract Powder has been gently processed with a natural enzyme to eliminate the traditional bitter notes of regular stevia, while also improving the overall flavor.
As one of the healthiest sugar alternatives, stevia provides a number of health benefits.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS
With a glycemic load of zero, stevia extract is the perfect sweetener for those looking to watch their blood sugar levels. A study that appeared in the Journal of Dietary Supplements suggested that stevia may be helpful in maintaining healthy blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range.
PROMOTES SENSIBLE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PLANS
A high intake of foods rich in added sugars and empty calories can contribute to weight gain. Stevia contains zero calories. If you want to achieve your sensible weight management goals, then substituting sugar with stevia extract is definitely a step in the right direction, especially when this is accompanied by regular exercise and a well-balanced diet.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY BLOOD PRESSURE LEVELS
According to a study that appeared in the journal Clinical Therapeutics, the moderate consumption of stevia extract may help support healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range.
