Remedy: Sweet & May Lower Blood Sugar

This remedy is something you can add to your food to sweeten it. It's not an artificial sweetener, but a natural one. I'm about to go in the kitchen right now before I finish this post, make myself an evening treat of yogurt, blueberries, a touch of vanilla, and this sweetener, mix it all together for a bedtime snack.

The nutritional benefit of the herb is not one that necessarily cures an ailment, but helps prevent weight gain if you are inclined to gain by using to much sweetener. It has 0 glycemic index, and so it's a wonderful food for diabetics. 


Some studies "have shown that stevia can help control tolerance, decrease plasma glucose levels, and reduce glucose production in the liver".

The sweetener may not be new to you, it's Stevia.

  1. Thanks for the nice comment over ay Iowa Geek. AS for the thrid column- my husband is a computer software designer so he knows how to do all those nifty tricks. There are a lot of free Blogger templates, though, with three columns. Just Google "Free Blogger templates", then look for "three column templates". They are easy enough to install.
