Artículo científico que da base a que el esteviósido de la planta Stevia rebaudiana ayuda en la diabetes

Estudio científico que demuestra que el esteviósido de la Stevia rebaudiana aumenta la sensibilidad a insulina en los modelos de ratones y tiene efectos beneficiosos sobre la glucosa sanguínea y los niveles de insulina en los estudios humanos.

La pregunta es ¿por qué sólo aprovechar esa parte de esta planta si podemos aprovechar su hoja entera en forma cruda o en infusiones? Hazlo y sé autosuficiente con esta planta que te puede beneficiar.

Stevia, the common name for the extract stevioside from the leaves of Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni, is a natural, sweet-tasting calorie free botanical that may also be used as a sugar substitute or as an alternative to artificial sweeteners. Stevia has been found to increase insulin sensitivity in rodent models (Chang, Wu, Liu, & Cheng, 2005) and to have beneficial effects on blood glucose and insulin levels in human studies (Curi 1986; Gregersen, Jeppesen, Holst, & Hermansen, 2004), which suggests it may have a role in food intake regulation. In safety studies, no negative side effects were reported Barriocanal, 2008). Stevia was recently approved for use as a sweetener by the Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization Expert Committee on Food Additives (Joint Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Expert Committee on Food Additives, 2005), and has also recently received GRAS approval from the Food and Drug Administration. Stevia is inexpensive and available to most consumers; thus, it has the potential to be widely used and may assist individuals in regulating their weight if it has a positive effect on caloric substitution.
