      Default Stevia The Dark Side of this Natural Sweetener

      Stevia has gained substantial popularity as a natural no-calorie sweetener in the last several years. Do you ever wonder how stevia affects your body besides its no-calorie sweet taste?

      So stevia is no good? It wrecks your gut bacteria? Hell, there is no safe way to sweeten anything. I guess we just need to get over our need to eat sweet stuff

      I use it sometimes in my coffee, plus it’s in some types of whey protein. Same way Splenda is in a lot of whey protein. Guess there’s no escaping it

      It is better than splenda or the other fake sweeteners. All in moderation. Dzone, it is not that it wrecks your microbiome it is that sugar loving bacteria proliferate and can cause an imbalance. If you eat diverse veggies and fruits containing fiber then you will be fine. I limit adding stevia to coffee to the weekends as a treat. Luckily i like black coffee. BUT....my protein powder is sweetened with stevia so that is a daily source.

      Like I said, still better than Aspartame.

      I started using swerve sweetener in recipes, have not tried it in coffee. Some can be sensitive to it but my body is fine with it.
