Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/12/2014 -- The popularity of yacon syrup in the health and wellness community continues to grow, and that is because of its well-rounded health benefits. Extracted from the root of the plant yacon, it is known to have diverse health benefits, including stabilized blood sugar levels, improved digestive health, and natural and healthy weight loss.
When one uses yacon syrup as an alternative to sugar, they may experience stabilized sugar levels. It has a very low glycemic index, and that is because around half of its sweetness is brought about by FOS (fructooligosaccharides). The body does not have the capability to fully metabolize FOS, so what happens is that passes through the digestive system without leaving behind absorbable sugar compounds.
Another benefit that adding the syrup to one’s diet may have is that it is believed to improve digestive health. It may function as a prebiotic, so it helps stimulate the good bacteria in the intestine. These good bacteria not only boost the digestive system but also help build a stronger immune system. Furthermore, when one adds the health product to their diet, they may experience an increase in the frequency of their bowel movement. The reason for this is that it allows the body to regularly eliminate waste, which helps the body detoxify and function better. When one takes it every day, they may also be able to healthily lose weight. Because it is high in FOS which the body treats like fiber, it may help inhibit the hunger hormone ghrelin without leaving the body loaded with unwanted amounts of calories.
Indeed with the diverse health benefits of yacon syrup, it would be an excellent addition to one’s diet.
“There were no negative effects. Given that yacon is high in soluble fiber (as are oats and beans), I would have expected some gassiness, but the participants did not report that problem at the 10 mg dosage level used in the study (higher doses did cause some nausea and cramps). Many participants had had constipation prior to the study, and that seemed to be relieved by the yacon, but there did not appear to be adverse digestive effects.” – Dr. Neal Barnard
