Introduction
Derived from the stevia plant, Stevia rebaudiana, stevia is a natural sweetener. It is considered a safe and healthy alternative to sweetening delicacies without exerting negative effects associated with refined sugar. Stevia also provides a range of health benefits. (1)

STEVIA AND CANCER

Extensive studies are carried out on stevia to understand its anti-cancer properties.

Studies have indicated that the administration of stevia played an important role against cancer cell lines by reducing the glucose levels in the bloodstream. It also provides anti-inflammatory properties by reducing oxidative stress that aids in tumour development.

As per studies stevia helps in stimulating apoptosis (natural and controlled death of cells) and inhibits the growth and proliferation of carcinogenic cells. Antioxidants and glycosides called stevioside help in inhibiting mitochondrial pathways and induce apoptosis effectively. (2)
