Stevia, Sweet Water Flavors

First, drink plain water, lots of it, every day. It is good for you. For the few times when you don’t want to drink plain water, add a little flavor to the water to give it taste. For those times, consider Stevia, sweet water flavors.

While liquid Stevia may not have the polished finish of MiO water flavor and its bottles may look like medicine bottles with a dropper, they will add a nice sweet flavor to the water. The liquid Stevia comes in a range of flavors, from Apricot-Nectar, Berry, … to Valencia Orange.

Stevia is an herb and provides a natural alternative to artificial sweeteners such as sucralose used in MiO. Stevia is a zero-calorie, zero-carb, zero-glycemic index sweetener safe for diabetics and hypoglycemics. Coca-Cola is selling Stevia under the Truvia brand name, while Pepsi is selling it as PureVia.
