That being said…
If you take ANY supplement (powder, pill, bar), eat any sugar-free or diet foods, drink diet or energy drinks drinks…you’ll want to go check your labels after reading this.
??????????????????????????????

STEVIA:
? It’s a plant found in Brazil & Paraguay
? It’s been used for HUNDREDS of years by natives in food and medicine.
? It is 250-300 times sweeter than sugar so much less is needed
? It is naturally calorie-free
? It naturally contains potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamin B3.
? It is a natural anti-fungal
? It is a fibrous plant that can promote proper digestion
? Studies have shown that Stevia does not interfere with blood glucose or insulin levels

SUCRALOSE:
? Highly processed ?
? It is a chlorocarbon which means that part of its molecular structure has been removed and replaced with chlorine molecules
? Has only been used by humans in foods for 18 years (since 1998) so there is no way to know it’s long-term effects
? Was shown to decrease good gut flora by 50% and increase intestinal PH levels
? Can stimulate appetite, increase carb/sugar cravings and stimulate fat storage. In fact, diet sodas containing artificial sweeteners can actually DOUBLE your risk of obesity. ?
? When tested on animals, those given Sucralose showed to have decreased red blood cells (anemia), increased male infertility, enlarged and calcified kidney, spontaneous abortions and a 4 TIMES HIGHER death rate in the group given Sucralose compared to the control group.
