Organic Stevia Extract
Stevia rebaudiana, a perennial shrub that is part of the Asteraceae family, is a sweetener herb that is native to South America. The leaves of stevia are sweeter than sucrose and contain zero calories, which makes them a great alternative to sugar for people who are diabetic and obese, and for childen as well. Stevia has also been shown to exhibit antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, anti-fertility and cardiotonic properties to name a few.
With the increasing popularity of this herb, we placed great importance on sourcing the highest quality Stevia to ensure the potency and integrity of the plant. In our Adrenal Supertonic, we have incorporated a Stevia Absolute Extract Power with 98% Reb-A, which is the primary compound that makes stevia sweet, to give this formula a naturally sweet taste without the added calories! Extracting these compounds from the plant is a very meticulous process because there have not been any enzymes or harsh chemical solvents such as methane, hexane, or ethyl acetate used, and the natural extraction process has not been accelerated. Many conventional practices of harvesting and processing Stevia have been altered to produce the highest quantity in the shortest amount of time-- which depletes the life force and integrity of the plant; so we wanted to be sure we were really doing it the right way.
The Stevia Extract used in our Adrenal Supertonic has been harvested from family-owned farms, picked by hand at the peak of the growing season, and then dried naturally using sunlight and fresh hair. It is certified organic and known for its clean, bitter-free taste with no additives, fillers or chemical residues. Enjoy the health benefits of Stevia and the sweet taste it adds to Cymbiotika’s Adrenal Supertonic formula.
