BetterStevia Balance is a unique combination of stevia, inulin, and chromium that's ideally suited to support healthy glucose metabolism. Our convenient packets can be taken anywhere, so you're never without a healthy, zero-calorie alternative. By now most of us have heard of stevia, a small plant native to South America with unique nutritive properties. While mass market brands have only recently jumped on the stevia bandwagon, NOW has been selling stevia for more than 25 years, so we know a thing or two about this amazing herb and its outstanding properties. Over the years the purification process for BetterStevia extract has been improved, leading to a natural product with exceptional purity and virtually no bitter aftertaste. The Balance in BetterStevia Balance comes from inulin and chromium. Inulin, a fructooligosaccharide from chicory, is a non-digestible soluble fiber that can be utilized for nourishment by the probiotic bacteria in the gut. Chromium, a dietary mineral, is included due to its essential role in the body's metabolism of glucose, further supporting the low glycemic properties inherent in BetterStevia Balance. Stevia Balance is an ideal supplement for anyone looking for an effective, convenient natural product with a low glycemic impact.
