|Stevia Leaf – Whole|
|Super Sweet Stevia Leaf – Powder, North American Grown, Certified OrganicOur Blackbird Stevia plant is patented. This new Stevia is grown “Certified Organic”. It is a strain that has a high, yet exceptionally stable, level of Rebaudioside A and a low level of Stevioside. Stevioside is the sweet factor in the Stevia plant that has an aftertaste. Exacting measures are taken to preserve these levels in each successive plant generation. Properly growing, nourishing, and maintaining a quality plant is critical to the entire process. This is the best of the best. Nowhere in the world can you find a Stevia with a clean sweetness like that of Blackbird Stevia from Herbal Advantage, Inc.
Rebaudioside A (Reb A) is found in the leaves of the Stevia plant at different concentrations depending on the strain of the plant and its propagation methods. Our Stevia is a little bit sweeter than anything else in the world but the big difference is that it no longer has a “bitter” taste. This is a cleaner sweetness. This is 100% pure Stevia leaf. It is North American grown using no pesticides.
Stevia leaf may be used in cooking and baking. Two tablespoons of Stevia leaf powder = one cup of sugar in sweetening power.
SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE (SOD) (an anti-cancer factor) – There are three enzymes known to have significant antioxidant activity. One of these is Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), which is present in wheat grass and Stevia. It has been found that cancerous cells have a deficiency or a complete lack of SOD. So, if you supplement your diet with wheat grass you will almost certainly be helping your body to avoid, or deal with, cancerous conditions. Anti-oxidants have the ability to mop up free radicals and so reduce or avoid cell mutation. The mutation is part of the first stage of cancer formation. This is an extremely important factor – because cancer is the biggest killer after heart disease in the Western world.
