Title: Spices and Therapeutics
Issue Date: Feb-2005
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Stevia rebaudiana (Bert.) Bertoni leaves have been used as powerful sweetening agents (as stevioside). Physiological and pharmacological experiments have suggested that stevioside and its extracts promote effects on some physiological systems, such as cardiovascular and renal. In addition, stevioside and Stevia extracts are able to induce diuresis, natriuresis and kaliuresis. The hypoglycaemic effect reported by some authors has been observed exclusively with total extracts and not with purified stevioside. In an experiment female rats and mice fed with a 5% aqueous extract displayed reduced fertility, an effect apparently not reversible following drug withdrawal.
