There is no denying that most people love eating sweets or foods with high carbohydrates. For Filipinos, it has been a part of our daily life. That is why we are more prone to have diabetes mellitus.
According to recent data by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA), diabetes is the fifth leading cause of death in the country. And while we try to avoid or reduce our consumption of such foods and drinks to live a healthier and better life, there are times when we miss or crave the treats we once loved.
So, fear not because Santé, a premier natural and organic health and wellness product and service provider, brings you its healthy sweetener Sweet Via for a perfect partner with your daily coffee and other treats.
A healthier sweetener
Sweet Via is made with stevia, a natural substitute for sugar, obtained from the leaves of a small perennial green shrub. This plant has shown medicinal properties that are anti-diarrheal, anti-tumor, diuretic, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory actions. Stevia helps to reduce high blood sugar levels and high blood pressure.
Sweet Via also contains inulin, a natural soluble dietary fiber from a chicory plant, for digestive health. It assists in easing constipation, is good for weight loss, and aids in controlling blood sugar levels.
“Sweet Via is an all-natural, plant-based sweetener, which is why it is your healthier kind of sweet. We hope that as Filipinos exchange their usual sweeteners with Sweet Via, we can help them not worry about compromising their health to enjoy the foods and beverages they love,” said Joey Marcelo, chief executive officer of Santé.
