Stevia vs Refined Sugar: Which Is Better? Pt. 2

Don’t Let Refined Sugar Control Your Life

Personal health is important. Often, people take for granted the fact that they are healthy and partake in behaviors that risk jeopardizing their health. One of these harmful behaviors, consuming large amounts of refined sugar, can have serious impacts on an individual’s health. Diabetes, weight gain, an increase in cholesterol and blood pressures, and a variety of other health issues have been linked to consumption of large amounts of sugar. At this point, you are probably wondering why people consume refined sugar if it has been associated with so many negative health effects; the answer is actually quite simple. Refined sugar is in so many products now that it is nearly impossible to consume a meal without also consuming refined sugar. What’s worse, sugar is addictive, meaning that if people get used to consuming it regularly and are suddenly interrupted, they will experience withdrawals. Here at SoPure Stevia, we want to help people reduce their consumption of refined sugar by instead choosing to use our all-natural stevia extracts. Our sugar substitute has many benefits that sugar does not and, below, we have listed out a few more of these benefits.

Stevia Helps With the Effects of Candidiasis

Unless you are a medical professional, you’re probably wondering what Candidiasis is. To understand what Candidiasis is, first, you must understand a little about the human intestine. Candida albicans is a naturally occurring yeast that is present in every person’s intestines. This yeast is normally rather dormant, however, when people consume large amounts of refined sugar this yeast starts to become a bit of a problem. The more sugar that is consumed, the more likely it is that the natural yeast in a person’s intestines will feed off of it and grow, causing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Stevia, however, cannot be fermented by the yeast found in people’s intestines. Not only will this help to prevent Candidiasis from occurring, it can also be used to help cure Candidiasis once it has occurred.

Stevia Helps to Regulate Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition that affects millions of Americans a year. While many factors influence hypertension, excessive weight gain is one of the main culprits. As we all know, sugar contributes to the gaining of weight so, in a roundabout way, refined sugar is actually contributing to the rise of hypertension cases. Stevia has been used for generations by native tribes in South America as a natural remedy for hypertension and, in recent years, Western medicine has started to incorporate stevia into plans designed to reduce patient’s’ blood pressure.
