This source of caffeine provides a natural, longer-lasting energy without the adverse side effects experienced with synthetic caffeine, such as jitteriness or a sudden crash.

The Stevia plant has been used for more than 1,500 years by the Guaraní peoples of South America, the indigenous people used to chew the leaves for their sweet taste and used them to naturally sweeten beverages. What makes this plant truly special is that there are no calories associated with it.
