Stevia is created from the Stevia plant and is a natural sweetener that is popular because of the lack of calories that are in it. Since it is much sweeter than other options, you do not need a great deal in order to reach the right type of taste for your needs. It is also a great option for those who are suffering from diabetes because it can help keep your blood sugar levels regular. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

One question that many women have regarding stevia is whether it will affect their fertility. However, currently there are not any reported side effects among those who use stevia and it has been around for many years.

However, there was a study completed on rats during the late 60s. This study showed that rats who consumed Stevia had fewer and smaller offspring. Similar studies were performed on humans during the late 80s and it showed that it had the possibility of becoming a contraceptive. Even though these studies are a bit alarming, it is not believed that there is a great chance that fertility can be affected by stevia. Since the amount of Stevia must be fairly large to have an effect on fertility, it is unlikely that a person will consume enough to make a difference in this area.
