Sweet Via is made of 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.
