Living Natural Yacon Syrup Review #LivingNaturalYaconSyrup

Living Natural Yacon Syrup Review


Living Natural Yacon Syrup is a great tasting alternative to sugar and a natural boost to weight loss.

Living Natural Yacon Syrup is an all-natural food that helps in slimming down, boosting metabolism and energy levels, and providing overall gut protection.  It is a great tasting alternative sweetener that not only suppresses in-between meal sugar cravings, but also contains only a third of the calories of ordinary table sugar.  Taken alone, with drinks, or used in preparing foods like cookies or muffins, it gives a rich sweet flavor similar to molasses.  By simply substituting sugar or sweetener with the equivalent amount of yacon syrup gives a delectable twist to refreshing drinks like juice, tea or coffee, homemade and gourmet cuisine, and even grandma's time-tested recipes.  Whilst improving the flavor of food and drinks, this natural wonder helps make them healthier too!

The yacon root is a soluble fiber that helps people feel full.  Yacon contributes few calories because it passes through the body undigested.  The active ingredient, which leads to weight loss, is fructooligosaccharides (FOS).  FOS is also found in onions, garlic, asparagus, bananas, artichokes and chicory, but the concentration in yacon is much higher.  With a low GI (or glycaemic index), this makes it suitable for diabetics and those suffering from digestion problems.  Fiber assists in lowering blood sugar, cuts cholesterol and can help to prevent colon cancer by pushing waste out through the colon.  It absorbs water and cleans the gastric cavity along the way for ease with bowel movements which eliminates internal toxins faster. Additionally, the low GI of this root crop extract results to the steady rise of glucose level in the blood, which in turn leads to small gentle increases of insulin in the body.  This maintains the feeling of fullness for longer periods and prevents unwanted between-meal snacking, a better and healthier method than dieting or skipping meals.

Living  Natural Yacon Syrup is produced from only pure quality yacon root crops, with no coloring or additives used to preserve its purity.  It is manufactured in state-of-the-art US facilities approved according to FDA standards. Living  

I am really enjoying Living Natural Yacon Syrup. It doesn't leave any bad aftertaste like some sugar substitutes do, nor is it overly sweet. As a diabetic, I try to be very conscious of what I eat. The Yacon Syrup does not affect my blood sugar with any crazy spikes, which is a plus for me! I have mostly used it in my coffee to date, but I have plans to bake and cook with it soon. I am thinking about trying out a bar-b-que sauce with it.

What would you use it in? I would love to get some ideas of what else to use it for! Leave me a comment below if you have some ideas! Thank you in advance, and let me know if you have tried Living Natural Yacon Syrup for yourself! I know I would recommend giving it a try!
