Dr. Oz Best Choice For Natural Sweeteners: Stevia And Blue Agave

By George Napoli

Stevia natural sweetener or blue agave are best solutions for preventing weight gain and diabetes.

It seems every week the topic of weight loss is in the news. It’s no surprise when we review the stats why it is so well liked. Approximately 1.6 billion consumers overweight and 400 million are obese.

No wonder why it’s such a familiar subject and one that is headlined every day. Dr. Oz a well known medical doctor from ABC, ran a segment on weight loss recently. The patient he was working with was addicted to sugar, using over 5 packets of sugar at a time, needing to eliminate sugar from her diet.

Of all the products on the market, Dr. Oz only recommended two natural sweetener products for her to use: Blue Agave and stevia. Diabetes and obesity statistics around the world are extremely high. The food industry has been spinning off healthier foods as a proactive trend that started over a decade ago.

Today, the terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are consumers’ popular terms in healthy foods. Let’ take a look at the two natural sweeteners Dr. Oz recommended, and you’ll see why the proof is in the sweetener.

Organic Blue Agave is a natural sweetener extracted from the heart of the Blue Agave plant has been used for thousands of years. It is sweeter than table sugar and Agave is a low glycemic Index (GI) sweetener. It is slowly absorbed into the body preventing artificial spikes in blood sugar, so a little goes a long way. Use this organic sweetener versus table sugar for making baked goods.

Stevia- based sweeteners offer a blend of favorable advantages: natural, high intensity, and zero calories and zero carbs. Stevia-based high purity sweeteners are natural. Stevia is two to three hundred times stronger than regular sugar and has been known for weight control and diabetes.

Uses for stevia sweetener are growing and this sweetener has both physical benefits and functional benefits as well. Natural stevia-based sweeteners combine in a wide range of foods, beverages, and dietary products. Artificial sweeteners with aspartame and sugar are on top of the list to replace emerging stevia sweeteners, with beverages being first applications.

In the U.S., the FDA only granted the first no objection letters for Reb-A’s (Rebaudioside -A) use in foods in December 2008 to Cargill. Until then, dried stevia leaves and extracts could only be used in dietary supplements that date back to 1995. Stevia RA 97 is now recognized as a natural sweetener and not just a dietary supplement.

This will bring stevia to main stream quickly. Dr. Oz is in the know and one of the most recognized physicians on TV today. His recommendations for two natural sweeteners in weight loss and diabetes is well taken.

If you have to use a sweetener, use either of these 2 natural sweeteners. Try using either blue agave or natural stevia sweetener and see why this product is gaining in popularity for both weight loss and diabetes. Blue Agave and stevia are available on the web as well as in many health stores.
