Natural Standard's featured CE/CME for the month of January is Stevia: Safety & Effectiveness.
Stevia (Stevia rebaudiana) leaf extracts have been used for many years in traditional treatment of diabetes in South America. Paraguay's rural and indigenous populations have used stevia for birth control. Rebaudioside A and stevioside are steviol glycoside compounds extracted from stevia that are used as natural sweeteners or dietary supplements. These compounds reportedly possess up to 250 times the sweetness intensity of sucrose.
