When choosing ingredients for our supplements, Amy Myers MD® will always prioritize choosing natural ingredients rather than those known as the "Dirty Dozen".
Stevia is a natural sweetener from an earth-grown ingredient. The plant is grown in parts of Paraguay, Kenya, China, and the United States and is 100-300 times sweeter than sugar without containing any actual sugar!
This Zero Calorie natural sweetener is made from the leaves of the stevia plant that is related to asters and chrysanthemums.
Some Stevia manufacturers use other fillers such as erythritol. We only use 100% organic stevia in our supplements.
For those with a sensitivity to stevia or who do not prefer the taste of stevia, we offer unflavored versions of our Paleo Protein and Leaky Gut Revive Products for your convenience!
