In my time in Jorge Cruise’s Belly Fat Cure program, one of the best new product recommendations I’ve received is to replace soda with Zevia Brand Sodas. Zevia’s tag line is “Natural Diet Soda” and by natural, it means the ingredients are all derived from natural sources. Zevia is naturally sweetened with Stevia (a natural sweetener made from the leaves of plants from the sunflower family originating from Central and South America) and Erythritol (a sugar alcohol made from fruits and vegetables). Even the caffeine in Zevia Cola (the only flavor to contain any caffeine) is derived from coffee.
Sure you may have seen “Natural” sodas before, but most of those are loaded with even more sugar than Coca-Cola. And you’ve probably seen “Diet” sodas which are usually loaded with artificial sweeteners like aspartame (Nutrasweet), sucralose (Splenda), and saccharin (Sweet ‘N Low). Zevia is different because its an all natural soda that is zero calories, zero sugar, zero net carbs, zero rating on glycemic index and it’s even certified as Kosher. Anther healthy benefits of Zevia is that the soda will not cause tooth decay. The natural sweeteners don’t ferment when they come into contact with bacteria in the mouth and Zevia doesn’t use phosphoric acid found in other sodas which has been known to eat away at tooth enamel and deplete the body of calcium.
