Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2014 -- Yacon syrup proves to be a breakthrough in the field of health and fitness as it continues to impress experts and consumers of its health and weight loss benefits. It addresses some of the health issues that millions of people face such as obesity and diabetes.
Yacon is a plant native to the Andes Mountains in South America, and owing to research and technology, its benefits have been made easily available to many in the form of yacon syrup. It is an excellent addition to one’s diet because of its low caloric content and it may serve as a prebiotic. This is primarily because around half of its sweetness is brought about by FOS (fructooligosaccharides). The body does not have the ability to fully breakdown FOS, so it merely passes through the digestive system. As such, the syrup helps inhibit the hunger hormone ghrelin without loading the body with excessive amounts of calories. Moreover, because it is very low on the glycemic index scale, using it as an alternative to sugar or artificial sweeteners may help reduce the amount of sugar in one’s diet and prevent diabetes.
That yacon syrup is high in FOS also makes it very good for the digestive health. The good bacteria feed on FOS, which is then transformed to short-chain fatty acids. These short-chain fatty acids are known to promote digestive health, increase sensitivity to insulin, and inhibit cholesterol in the liver. Indeed, with the diverse health benefits of the syrup, it is no doubt one of the most important health products today.
“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
