If you use stevia daily and have some unexplainable gut problems, try to avoid stevia for a few days. Maybe it is causing your gut problems. According to a recent Israeli study, the natural low-calorie sweetener stevia may lead to a gut microbial imbalance and, as a result, to a variety of gastrointestinal health issues.

The study discovered that stevia and its purified extracts, including stevioside, rebaudioside A and steviol disrupt the communication between various bacteria in the gut by interacting with them through different pathways and creating the microbial imbalance.

How much stevia, and for how long, can lead to the gut problems are yet to be established.

Researchers urge for more reseach on stevia before the food industry replaces sugar and artificial sweeteners with stevia and its extracts.
