Dear Stevia friends,

If you haven't heard about Stevia, then be informed, that Stevia will change your lifestyle in near future.

Let me ask you a question: just how much sugar do we consume everyday? How much sugar in our coffee? How about our food? For most of us, we take a lot of sugar daily, with or without noticing. Sugar is good, but the danger starts when sugar is taken excessively.

Modern food and beverage products over the counter are so irresistible. They taste good, that's why! But tasting good involves a lot of ingredients, and sugar being the main one. No company will ever highlight sugar percentage in their commercial products. Doing that would say: "Don't buy our product! You will catch diabetes!"

Our body needs sugar

We need energy. We need sugar to complement our diet. Our body digests and absorbs sugars rapidly, and quickly turns them into saturated fatty acids and cholesterol. This must be used through fat-burning activities or else it will start accumulating under our skin, in our liver, arteries and other organs!

What then? What if the fatty acids and glucose are being accumulated non-stop? Well technically, blood glucose levels will shoot up to the roof. Hyperglycemia is the term, and this is one early symptoms of diabetes.

Feeling depressed and dizzy lately? Or maybe an awkward aggression, insomnia or overall body weakness? Perhaps you have been consuming too much of sugar!

In coming posts, Dr. Stevia will reveal Stevia; a miraculous plant that is the best candidate to replace table sugar, minus the bitter consequences!

Till the next post!

    Dear Sir..

    I have just get to know about stevia after a visit to a Mardi outlet at Mini Maha 2010 held at Batu Pahat, Johor recently and would like to find out how to grow stevia in Malaysia.

    Where do I find more information on how to plant stevia at a larger scale area e.g 10 acres ++, the suitable soil and climate condition, the fertilizer, crop management & harvesting process and also the market in Malaysia current and in the future.

    thank you and best regards, hope to hear from you soon.
