Regulates blood sugar levels, helps with weight loss, improve the health of the liver, prevent certain types of cancer and strengthens the immune system.
Yacon tends to regulate blood sugar levels, lower “bad” cholesterol, help with weight loss, lower blood pressure, improve the health of the liver, prevent certain types of cancer, boost digestive health, and strengthen the immune system. The tubers consist of fructooligosaccharide, an indigestible polysaccharide comprised of fructose.
Fructooligosaccharides taste sweet, yet pass through the human digestive system unmetabolised, therefore have little caloric value. Moreover, fructooligosaccharides have a prebiotic effect, which means they are used by beneficial bacteria which improve colon health and aid digestion.
Yacon also helps the body increase its vitamin and mineral absorption of all other foods. It is itself rich in potassium, calcium, and phosphorous. A perennial plant that produces crisp, sweet, tuberous roots, Yacon is originally from South America and is a relative of the sunflower. It creates juicy, edible tubers, from where its title, converted as “watery root,” is derived.
Main recommended use: Perfect carbohydrate source for diabetics.
