stevia side effects

Stevia is a diuretic, increasing the body's excretion of water and electrolytes. Long-term stevia consumption could harm the kidney because it filters and excretes urine.

Kidney damage

For those who are chemically sensitive, some stevia products contain sugar alcohols that can cause discomfort. St. evia has been shown to help with IBS and diarrhoea (IBS).

Gastrointestinal signs

A 2015 review found few reported cases of stevia allergy. The FDA and the European Commission concluded that the number of people who are allergic to stevia is low.

Allergic reaction

It was once thought that long-term or heavy stevia consumption could cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). This has since been proven unlikely, except in cases of hypoglycemia.

low blood sugar

Stevia dilates blood vessels. The benefits of this use are being studied. Long-term blood pressure medication use is risky. Low blood pressure requires medical attention.

Low blood pressure

Steviol glycosides are a type of steroid that can disrupt the endocrine system. In 2016, researchers found that steviol increased progesterone production in human sperm cells.

Endocrine disruption

Stevia is frequently combined with other sweeteners, each with its own drawbacks. Sugar alcohols like erythritol can cause stomach issues in those hypersensitive to them.

Gut issues

There are no human studies to prove that stevia could be safe during pregnancy. We suggest you talk to your doctor before doing so as studies offer mixed opinions.
