I have recently read sum threads about stevia eitheir causing symptoms or people staying away from it. I put it in everything I mean always my bread and drink it in tea all day. I’m to new in treatment to see if its bothering me but just would like to hear more about if its a problem. I certainly couldn’t live without it at this point .February 11, 2013 at 11:34 pm #97200

Hope, if the label shows no other ingredients other than Stevia, then there is nothing there to cause Candida symptoms. Several of us used it throughout our treatment, and in my case I can say that it did not hinder the treatment or slow my progress at all. I still use it today, every day in fact.

I think that one person thought that they thought it made them crave sweets more, I guess because it tasted sweet. But if it doesn’t increase your cravings then I think should be able to use it no problem.February 12, 2013 at 3:12 am #97231
I’m sorry guys I messd up looking at these ingredients closer there is maletexdrin and dextrose in stevia in the raw! Dark green bag has maltexdtrin & dark green packets have the dextrose damn!
This makes me mad I have not seen anything else in stores where can I get just reg stevia plant? What’s in your stevia?
Stevia in the raw has eitheir maltexdrin or dextrose plus stevia extract this is all that’s in the stores I been using alot of it! !February 12, 2013 at 7:09 am #97254
Bumping this y’all. I need stevia right now I’m having a very hard time following strict diet. I’m scared the dextrose and maltexdrin will slow my progress. Maybe I should ease off it a bit. If anyone has a stevia that is just the plant or is using reg stevia with no problems I’d love to hear about it.
Able what stevia are u using? I can’t find one without those 2 ingredients. I just want the stevia plant LOL!February 12, 2013 at 7:16 am #97255

you bumped it from 3 down?
Your stevia has crap in it that you shouldn’t be eating, you stated that yourself.
I looked at 3 stevias on iherb.com
and none of them have anything but stevia.
Stevia is a plant that you can grow at home if your worried about added crap.February 12, 2013 at 7:36 am #97257
Thanks for the link I seen one around same price as the one I been buying but not sure bout shipping. I hadent lookd online yet just around local stores.
I had no idea I can grow at home I’m down to do that I been waiting 4 spring 2 do my garden I can certainly look for a stevia plant also sounds so much cheaper 2 .
Has anyone grown their own?February 12, 2013 at 10:10 am #97268

I have two very brown thumbs, but I know someone that doesn’t. She gave me some dried stevia from her garden and it’s awesome. I rarely use it, but I sprinkle it in my “muffins”.
If you start to taper off the stevia, you’ll quickly find that you don’t miss it and things taste sweet naturally.February 12, 2013 at 1:00 pm #97284

The organic stevia from Trader Joe’s is additive-free, and it seems really concentrated (it comes with a tiny scoop).February 13, 2013 at 4:45 am #97413

I am sorry to hear you bought stevia with maltodextrin and other ingredients. Half of the stuff out there is junk and the other half is good. I personally use brands called steviva and sweet leaf.
You can also grow it in your garden!

I was just looking for where to get a stivia plant when I ran across this on Livestrong:
In addition, though stevia does contain compounds that improve insulin function and lower blood sugar, inappropriate use of stevia can lower blood sugar too far. The resulting hypoglycemia can be dangerous and can also cause reflexive overeating.
This really has me thinking because lately I’ve had hypoglycemic symptoms. Don’t think my usage would qualify for “inappropriate” but I think I’ll back off the stivia and see if that helps!
