High Fiber Content
While it seems unlikely at first glance (which is not at all surprising because not that many natural sweeteners are fiber rich), Yacon syrup is full of dietary fiber, which provides a number of advantages. A high fiber diet is usually recommended to people who have frequent bouts with indigestion, irregular and/or painful bowel movements, and other relevant forms of digestive distress.
Adequate fiber consumption is not always something that people are mindful of in terms of their diet. However, it is fairly important in keeping the digestive system healthy so taking just the right dosage of Yacon syrup daily would help immensely.
Helps Lower Cholesterol and Blood Sugar Levels
People battling diabetes would be glad to know that they can use an alternative sweetener that is just as sweet as sugar sans the negative effects. Those who cannot do without sweetener in their daily tea or coffee can (and should) use yacon syrup as a substitute, which not only addresses one’s sweet tooth but also help reduce glucose levels in the blood. In the same way, Yacon has properties that combat high cholesterol with regular use.
Increases Bone Density
Aging has many drawbacks, not the least of which is bone loss. While people advancing in years try their best to rely on calcium supplements and specially formulated milk products, losing bone density is more or less inevitable. This is something that Yacon can rectify, with regular use as its natural properties facilitate the fortification of bones, particularly the spine. As a result degenerative conditions such as scoliosis, osteoporosis, and osteoarthritis can be effectively prevented if not significantly delayed.
Improves Immune System Function
The human body’s immune response is its first line of defense against infections, which makes it a very important system to maintain. Since poor nutrition and other less than healthy habits tend to weaken the immune system, it is necessary to take appropriate steps to fortify it. Yacon supplement is known to build up and protect that body’s defenses so that it can defend itself against diseases, especially ones that cause degenerative effects on one or more organ systems.
Increased Energy Levels
This is one of the best side effects (fringe benefits) of this product since it would help people who suffer from lethargy or premature exhaustion. Not to mention this would also help you push through grueling exercise routines that you would normally quit for being too tired after a hard day at work or at home.

Yacon Syrup and Weight Loss
When Dr. Oz first expressed his approval and apparent passion for this product, he did mention its many heath benefits. However, since it is heavily marketed as a weight loss product, Dr. Oz (as well as other lauded health professionals) decided to delve into its benefits as a supplement for weight reduction. It has been explained, in detail, how pure Yacon syrup can help with weight loss.
Here are some of the most important facts one should know before buying this product for purpose of losing weight:
Independent studies have yielded results that point to significant reduction in appetite in people who regularly take Yacon. Naturally, when you do not eat as much, your body has lesser calories to process. At a certain point, there will be a significant deficit (when your daily calorie needs exceed your actual intake), in which case the body will start metabolizing its calorie reserves.
Increased Rate of Metabolism
Not only will you be able to control and limit your food consumption but your body will also burn off twice as much calories from carbohydrates and fat. Appetite suppression and increased metabolic rate are the one-two punch of effective weight loss so you can definitely expect positive results.
Taking Yacon syrup daily is as close as you can get to completely rebooting your body. This pertains not only to your digestion, but also to your unique metabolic process. After some time (a few weeks or months of consuming Yacon syrup), your body will be tuned back into its original state where it can absorb as much nutrients as it needs and do away with the excess calories effectively. The net result is that you obtain a normal body mass and you do not gain back the weight at all.
