    Is stevia allowed for the 3-8 day cleanse since it is an herb?

    Stevia is a herb, but the sweetener called Stevia is not stevia-the-herb. The sweetener is one of two chemicals that are produced by the herb. These chemicals are extracted from the herb, purified, and sold as sweetener.

    The sweeteners are called Steviol Glycoside, and Rebaudioside.

    So those who say they’re using stevia, are really using Steviol Glycoside and/or Rebaudioside.

    Different brands of “stevia” differ in their mixture of these two sweet chemicals, in the amount of purification, and in the additives which they use. But none of them is really the herb itself.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I have a good one, pure organic Stevia Rebaudioside from Trader Joes, but since it is a processed food that is extracted from an herb, I will avoid it during my cleanse and wait till the next phase in the diet.

    I took Steviol Glycoside from day 1 (right after the cleanse). It was one of my only cheats and I had no problem with it.
