Yacon Weight Loss – Does it Work?

I’m sure you’ve heard all the buzz about Yacon Syrup. Dr. Oz recently finished a study that showed that 78% of women using Yacon lost weight! My Husband is a holostic MD so I’ve actually known about the benefits of yacon for quite awhile. I’m thrilled that it’s finally getting national exposure from someone as trusted as Dr Oz.

What is Yacon?

Yacon is a root found in South America. It has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years, and may be the next big thing to promote healthy weight loss. It significantly trim waistlines, and it also naturally supports good digestion and regulates blood sugar.

How Does it Work?

Yacon is rich in prebiotics, like inulin and fructooligosaccharides (FOS). The FOS, which are sugars found in many plants, is very high in yacon syrup. FOS resists breakdown by enzymes in the human digestive system and reach the colon without being digested. Therefor, yacon is low in calories. FOS also acts as a soluble fiber, which increases stool bulk to help prevent and control constipation.

The benefits don’t stop there. Taking Yacon also increases absorption of dietary minerals, and makes calcium more bioavailable. Studies have shown this helps increase bone density and delay osteoporosis. Studies also show that neutraceuticals, especially fructans such as yacon,  increase the efficiency of the immune system, lower infection risk and reduce digestive allergies.

The Dr Oz Study

D Oz asked 60 women to try yacon syrup with or before each meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for four weeks. They were told not to otherwise change their usual diets or exercise habits. Forty of the 60 women completed the project. Of these 40 women:

  • 29 (73%) of the women lost weight
  • 14 women lost five pounds or more
  • Average weight loss was 2.9 pounds
  • Average reduction in waist size was 1.9 inches
  • Total weight lost among all the women was 153 pounds
  • 27 (68%) recommended yacon as a weight loss tool

As you probably know, Yacon Supplements are nearly impossible to find. But today is your Lucky Day! My Husband has has a great source for purchasing the supplements he uses in his practice. You’d better hurry though, our supplier told us these supplements are FLYING off the shelf and he’s not sure when he’ll be able to stock more. Ever since Dr Oz made the announcement on his show, these Yacon pills are like gold.

Good Luck, and get ready to LOSE WEIGHT!
