Stevia rebaudiana is a small shrub native to South America which is known for its sweet tasting leaves. The leaf extract contains steviosides which are very sweet tasting and non-caloric, but also have beneficial effects on health. It has also been shown in humans that steviosides reduce postprandial blood glucose in type 2 diabetics, indicating improved glucose metabolism.
