Heals wounds faster
STEVIA ELIXIR™ is very useful in inhibiting the growth of certain commonly occurring organisms. Due to this property it is a great way to treat wounds and minor skin infections. Naturopaths believe that it has the capability to heal wounds faster, can reduce the pain associated with sores and even treat athlete’s foot (a skin condition commonly seen between the toes, usually due to extremely humid conditions). To treat athlete’s foot, soak your feet in warm water with a few drops of STEVIA ELIXIR™ extract. After soaking them for about fifteen minutes, pat dry the area and apply a few drops of the extract. You will see results in one to two weeks.
Controls high blood pressure
STEVIA ELIXIR™ is very useful in lowering blood pressure in people with hypertension. When blood pressure is high, Stevia can lower it by 6-14%. However, it has no effect on blood pressure that is normal or only mildly elevated. Having one cup of STEVIA ELIXIR™ tea on a daily basis can keep a patient suffering from hypertension and those predisposed to the disease, safe.
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
STEVIA ELIXIR™ contains a compound called retinoic acid that helps reverse wrinkles. It works by inhibiting the breakdown of cells especially collagen and elastin, reduces sebum production, and possibly even enhances the life span of cells. All one needs to do is mix STEVIA ELIXIR™ extract in their regular face cream and use it on a daily basis. Alternatively, one could use the extract on their face once every night and wash it off with cold water after half an hour.
Helps protect your teeth and gums
Gingivitis is an infection of the gums, caused due to certain bacteria present in the mouth. Since STEVIA ELIXIR™ has compounds that prevent the formation of cavities, plaque and bacteria in the mouth, it is great in fighting against gingivitis. The leaf contains various components like Tannins, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. All these compounds put together, prevent the colonization of bacteria in the mouth and around the gums. Since plaque is what predominantly contributes to the onset of gingivitis – by preventing its formation – STEVIA ELIXIR™ protects one’s gums from infection. All one has to do is add a few drops of STEVIA ELIXIR™ extract to their toothpaste or gargle regularly.
