Can Stevia Help Fight Osteoporosis?

A self-healing website published a page on stevia as a fighter against brittle bones. Japanese researchers have found that the herb stevia increases calcium density in animals. It also decreases body fat. Whether this translates to a medical use in humans remains to be proven. But as a stevia user, I find it intriguing.

By the way, always read the labels on sugar substitutes. The inactive ingredients (fillers) can be a problem for some people.

I use SweetLeaf Stevia, so this was an insteresting article for me, too! I have heard of many great health benefits of stevia, well, pure stevia, but not this.

Thank you!!
