Stevia could offer cure for Lyme disease, researchers say | Fox News
Stevia, a common coffee sweetener, could be a possible cure for Lyme disease after tests conducted by a Connecticut professor and her students showed it was most effective in treating the tick-borne illness.
Professor Eva Sapi, chairwoman of University of New Haven’s Department of Biology and Environmental Science, and her students have been testing the liquid, whole-leaf stevia extract to treat Borrelia burgdorferi — the bacteria that causes Lyme disease, according to Fox 61. Stevia is usually consumed in a powdered form.
Compared to other antibiotics such as doxycycline, cefoperazone and daptomycin, the sugar substitute proved to be the most effective in preventing the bacteria.
Though Sapi’s research was published in the European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology in 2015, she and researchers have still found that Stevia is the best treatment for Lyme Disease
