In addition to the amazing weight management benefits, yacon promotes overall body health by assisting in reducing your blood sugar and bad cholesterol levels. It can be incorporated into any diet, because it comes in pill form.
Yacon is an important plant with loads of therapeutic and physiologic effects and benefits. Numerous researches are tasked to analyze the usefulness of this plant and to further use these outcomes in the field of medicine and everyday life. Some things are proven and others are still in process, but there is a promising future for this plant in human health. FOS also acts as a soluble fiber, which increases stool bulk to help prevent and control constipation.
Yacon's FOS also helps feed beneficial bacteria in the colon, such as Bifidus and Lactobacillus. Studies have linked these good bowel bacteria to anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting effects and increasing their numbers may help maintain a healthy weight. In turn, these bacteria convert FOS to short-chain fatty acids, which help inhibit cholesterol synthesis in the liver and enhance tissue sensitivity to insulin. FOS has also been shown to modulate the production of certain gastrointestinal peptides that participate in gastric emptying rates and help regulate insulin levels and food intake. Yacon, therefore, may also help control appetite and food cravings, helping people eat less. Yacon has the potential to help with metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol and diabetes.
The study was aimed to assess the beneficial effects and tolerance of Yacon Root Extract on humans. Results: Daily consumption of Yacon Root Extract produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index. In addition, increased defecation frequency and satiety sensation were seen. Fasting glucose and serum lipids were not affected by the Yacon Root syrup. A positive effect was found in serum LDL-cholesterol levels. This study concluded that Yacon Root Extract is a good source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and its long-term consumption produced beneficial health effects on obese pre-menopausal women with insulin resistance.
Another popular TV doctor conducted his own study, which consisted of 60 female volunteers that consumed one tablespoon of Yacon Root Extract with or before each meal for four weeks, while not making any other changes in their diets or exercise habits. Out of the 60 female participants, only 40 completed the study trial. The results of his study showed that 29 out of the 40 participants reported weight loss of some sort, while 14 women lost 5 lbs. or more. The average weight loss among the female participants was about 3 lbs. There was also a reduction in waist size of almost 2 inches.
