There has been a lot of talk about Yacon Syrup lately because it is supposed to help you lose weight. That is why I wanted to try some.
It is supposed to help boost the metabolism, increase fiber intake, and promote good bowel function.
This syrup is low on the glycemic scale and is naturally sweet so it makes a great sweetener for diabetics or anyone who has trouble with blood sugar. This is because it contains a lot of oligofructose (inulin), a form of sugar that is not metabolized readily by the human body.
It tastes pretty good. The website says it tastes similar to molasses but the only molasses I ever tasted was nasty stuff and this Premium Yacon syrup was good.
Yacon syrup is a natural prebiotic as well so it is good for your digestive system because it stimulates the good bacteria you need.
The product information page on the Life & Food website also says that Yacon Syrup contains minerals such as potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and iron as well as 20 amino acids. The label above shows that it has 13 calories and NO FAT per serving.
I don’t know about all that nutritional stuff. It does taste good and it seems to boost my energy level and I have lost 9 lbs in the past two weeks. It might have been more if I took the full amount the directions say take.
You are supposed to take one teaspoon three times a day. I haven’t been doing that because it might interfere with my sleep. I try not to take or do anything that might keep me from sleeping because I am a really really grouchy person if I don’t get my sleep.
That means that anything that boosts metabolism or gives you energy gets taken in the morning or at least by 2 pm. That way it is pretty much out of my system by bed time.
This products is made in the U.S.A. in an FDA certified GMP facility and contains no gluten, no soy, and no GMO.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
