Why Should You Choose Protein Powder Made With Stevia?

 

It's likely that you've heard of stevia in one way or another. It's quickly becoming more and more prevalent as a natural sugar replacement. Unlike artificial sweeteners like sucralose and aspartame Stevia has actually been found to be more beneficial to our health rather than harmful. For example it doesn't turn into formaldehyde in our bodies ahem* aspartame*. and actually has been reported in some studies to have antioxidant and anti inflammation properties as opposed to sucralose which is a known inflammation culprit.

Stevia is categorized as a natural sweetener which can be derived from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana plant and is used as a sugar substitute. The active parts of stevia are steviol glycosides which are estimated to be 200 to 300 times sweeter than sugar, supply no calories or carbohydrates, and have no influence on the glycemic index.

Stevia has also been seen to lower blood sugar and insulin which has had great progress with individuals with type II diabetes. When stevia enters the body it does not spike blood sugar / blood insulin levels the way other sugars do. These are a few of the reasons why we chose to create a high quality whey protein that uses stevia as a sweetener- so that you don't have to worry about the negative health impacts of artificial sweeteners that exist in many of the products out there. A shake a day 7 days a week for a year; that's a lot of sucralose to be putting into your body- and that's just from your protein!

We as consumers are becoming smarter about our health and the companies providing health products should be too. Nexpharma is founded on building products that we would take and feel great about giving to our friends and families. That's why we create high quality ingredients blended together in a GMP certified facility.
