OK I know many have heard about the weight loss benefits of Yacon Syrup, but you know me it so is not about weight loss it is about being healthy & being healthy causes proper weight. So Yes I am big on Being healthy & Proper weight. After all being healthy makes you look healthy & I would much rather see a healthy looking person telling me how to use something. So take care of your health & get that healthy glow & proper weight.
When I started researching Yacon syrup I was more interested in its prebiotics & probiotics benefits, & how it helps to boost metabolism & to also boost the immune system, & that it increases fiber intake promoting good bowel function, the fact that it does not increase blood glucose, & lowers blood sugar, prevents & controls hyperglycemia, restores renal activity & is a good source of antioxidants, & its great nutritional value. And I also found promising research on Yacon Syrup for bone health benefits, ability to lower bad cholesterol, dental health benefits, preventing fat building up in the liver, & how it can help fight cancer. Wow right? All these amazing benefits from a syrup you take 3 times a day (dosing info below). And as a big ole plus it makes a great sweetener for hot or cold beverages too.
When I was first reading about Life & Food Yacon root syrup I decided it would be the very first Yacon syrup I try because it is 100% pure, raw, organic, non-gmo, all natural, gluten-free & made in the USA. And I am so glad I picked this brand to be my first try of Yacon syrup. The taste is amazing & I am in love with the fresh scent, kinda reminds me of fresh molasses but not as strong of a smell & it taste great too, I personally find the taste similar to baked yams, seriously & it is kinda a dark color. I found it easy to take right off a spoon or stirred in my beverages, it mixed in well & easily, I also added some to my protein shakes & smoothies sometimes, I also found the taste amazing on fresh-baked sourdough bread & on french toast, oh yum!
Take one (1) teaspoon 3 times a day, preferably taken with or before meals. Can be used as a sweetener in your tea/coffee and other beverages. Can be added to various recipes, salads and/or on top of pancakes.
In trying to avoid refined sugars I am so happy to add this amazing Life & Food Brand Yacon syrup of our list of healthy natural sweeteners. A big plus at least for us is that Yacon syrup promotes the growing of healthy bacteria in the gut & so is amazing for digestive issues. It is also a big plus when my kids & teenagers have lied using the product as well, I have not used it in too much baking yet other than in a loaf of sourdough bread that was cinnamon & sugar (used the syrup to replace the sugar) & it did turn out amazing with great flavor.
