A fantastic alternative to artificial sweeteners, Yacon Syrup is packed full of prebiotics that support gut health, act as an anti-inflammatory, and help speed up metabolism. Working to lower levels of the ‘hunger hormone’ ghrelin, it helps reduce cravings and bulk stools to alleviate constipation. Yacon Syrup may also increase the absorption of essential minerals, like calcium, which could prevent diseases such as osteoporosis.
According to a study in which 40 volunteers took one teaspoon of Yacon Syrup before each meal three times a day but did not change their dietary habits or workouts, nearly half reported weight loss of around five pounds in a short amount of time.
