Stevia: Benefits, Properties?
Stevia: cultivate and produce your own natural sweetener

Stevia rebaudiana is a plant native to Paraguay and Brazil, perennial of the family Compositae, have sweetening properties very strong, much stronger than sugar but was boycotted for years.
Until the '50s in our country, however, has been much cultivated as cheap and easy to find, contrary to the propagation and cultivation of sugar in wartime was not available to everyone.

His approval process, however, was very long, even for years it was based on a study from the late '60s in which it was stated that its toxicity after high doses were administered to guinea pigs in tests: the cause main fallibility of the same test was' not understanding the high sweetening power of the plant in question and therefore extremely oversized dosages that are not compatible with use.
Today, however, further tests have been made, both in Europe and in the U.S., where stevia has definitely exceeded all toxicity tests in which it was submitted (considering the amount of daily consumption that is around 10mg days has been tested in doses of gr.)
If that was not enough, however, stevia has always been present in nature and for decades consumed regularly by people of South America as a plant not only by the enormous sweetening properties but also even healing.
Since December 2011 it was finally regularized and was allowed its use, but only as a "dietary supplement", while its sale as sugar was not recognized.
Its active ingredient, steviol, is suitable for those who have diabetes as it does not affect insulin levels.
The active ingredient is present significantly in the leaves of the stevia plant and today you can easily find in nurseries: you can use fresh directly, using the leaves to brew tea, or you can make a tea from the power very much sweetener.
As we said in December 2011 stevia has become part of the food supplement category because it was considered energizing and used in the sports field and herbal: the leaves after they are harvested are dried and then pulverized, with its active ingredient on the market then have sprung many mushrooms as food sweeteners that until a few months before the legalization of the plant could be found only on the basis of aspartame, saccharin or cyclamate.
For anyone who is diabetic fact saccharin, cyclamate and aspartame, all synthetic sweeteners were the only alternatives easily and legally available on the market, though stevia has always had one more quality that artificial sweeteners have never been able to have (apart obviously do not have any contraindications when used in normal doses) has a pleasant taste in contrast, for example, saccharin has a bitter aftertaste but especially holds perfectly cooked (which for example the 'aspartame does') and in this stevia is perfect for desserts or drinks.
Stevia has 0 calories and therefore can be used to make desserts: a winning combination for those who do not want to line problems or health!

The cultivation of stevia plant is really easy: stevia change its business growth depending on the terrain in which they live, whether it is a clay soil will give smaller leaves and less sweetness and will grow in height, if it is a land loose the plant will be more substantial, will have larger leaves and with a greater sweetening power.

In addition, the stevia plant has an enormous power of propagation: a sprig removing and placing it immediately in the soil tend to root spontaneously, this huge property has earned its name as a pioneer plant covers and easily colonize any area of her contingent
