For years I have used stevia as my only alternative sweetener and avoided all the artificial and over-processed alternatives. Have recommended the same to anyone with diabetes or a tendency to gain weight on much carbs.
Good to know another reason that has been a wise choice!
Stevia is like any other plant based product. Some both tastes better and is better quality than others. Beware of additive and/or adulterants...you want the ingredient to be STEVIA ONLY! The other stuff is mainly fillers, to make it look like more in the container. It will NOT last longer.
Stevia is an excellent choice for anyone with diabetes or carbohydrate intolerance. It not only does not put a burden on the pancreas/insulin production, it actually helps stabilize/heal these. It sure was a winning combo for me with the rest of the Moreless Protocol taught here!
You can experiment with the various brands of pure stevia out there and report back to us all what you find, or take a recommendation from someone who has used many types for many years. I recommend Pure Stevia Extract by http://WWW.NUTRACEUTICAL.COM
1-800-365-5966 3.5 OZ.
Let life be sweet for all!
Keep seeking, applying, sharing accurate knowledge in order to
Keep seeking abundant life and joy!

Xylitol as a cavity busting agent!
"Xylitol has been shown to improve breath odor, retard loss of tooth enamel, reduce infections in the mouth and nasopharynx, and relieve dry mouth. It is safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics. Xylitol does not encourage growth of yeast, including Candida albicans. In contrast to ordinary sugar, xylitol increases the absorption of B-vitamins and calcium. Xylitol enjoys wide acceptance in Japan, Finland, and the Scandinavian countries. In the Soviet Union it has been used for decades as a sweetener for diabetics, and in Germany in solutions for intravenous feeding." http://roseofsharonacres.com/tooth_chips___soap_for_teeth?gclid=CIapovzkuZgCF...
this web site copied everything from toothsoap.com. They even quote the same book from Dr Judd and info about fluoride. How tacky and classless. Not that I agree with their take on xylitol but I thought that they are pretty brazen in copying everything from another web site.
