Stevia To The Rescue For Keto And Lyme Disease?

Stevia kills Lyme Disease better than standard antibiotics, study says — (Note from Erin: I was unaware when I posted this piece that the stevia used in the study was created by my personal friend and Lyme MD- Dr. Lee Cowden. In fact, click here to get my free book about my Lyme journey. Also, for those asking, you can buy the stevia here, I don’t personally sell …

As many of you know, 100% organic Stevia is the only sweetener that I use as it has pretty much zero impact on blood sugar, so hence it is Keto Friendly.  With the possibility of Monk Fruit, I don’t touch any other sweeteners because of the impact they have on your gut, and brain functions.  Just say no!

Compounds and antibiotic preparation

Different Stevia extracts manufactured by Nutramedix®, Now®, Sweet leaf®, and Truvia® were purchased from health food stores in the USA and were labeled randomly as Stevia A, B, C, and D. The extracts A, B, and C were formulated by standard alcohol extraction method whereas extract D was purchased in a powder form dissolved in distilled water. Stevioside (Sigma) was prepared in 0.001% DMSO and further diluted in 1× phosphate buffered saline (PBS, 0.1 M, pH 7.4 from Sigma). The antibiotics doxycycline, cefoperazone, and daptomycin (Sigma) at a concentration of 10 μg/ml were prepared in PBS. All antimicrobial agents were sterilized using a 0.2-μm filter unit (EMD Millipore, Billerica, MA). The antibiotic solutions were aliquoted and stored at minus 20 °C.

Here is a link to the actual study.

Since Lyme Disease of which there may be up to 500,000 new cases each year is one of the most under-reported illnesses out there, this may be good to know.

Here is the Liquid Stevia that I just ordered and that I am going to switch too as long as it tastes OK. Who knows what else it can help with right?  I know it does not impact my fasting and the antibiotic properties are a bonus. Can’t hurt, might help!

They mention the Now brand in the study, so that is what I got.  Wonder if it could help prevent it as well.
