YACON ROOT Extract •Pure• Powder Capsules
❤️ IMPROVE YOUR DIGESTIVE HEALTH – Yacon root contains compounds that function as prebiotics in the body, improving digestive health. These prebiotic properties influence the development of microflora in the digestive tract, leading to improved gastrointestinal fermentation.
❤️ BOOST YOUR METABOLISM – Yacon Root has metabolism boosting properties that help you burn more calories by boosting your basal metabolic rate, or the number of calories your body uses to simply carry out its daily functions. This means that your body will begin burning off additional calories before you even begin adding exercise to your routine. Not only will this help you lose weight faster, it will help you avoid the plateau pitfalls.
❤️ SUPPRESS YOUR APPETITE – Yacon Root contains soluble fiber which is able to bulk the food in our digestive system thus preventing constipation. The bulky feeling also keeps you full, which as a result helps reduce your appetite. It is also believed to affect ghrelin, a hormone that affects our hunger, thus resulting in elimination of hunger pangs.
The yacon root has a high pre-biotic effect, assisting the development of the intestinal flora with beneficial effects at various levels.
The Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) contained in yacon feed the intestinal flora and result in various beneficial effects on the metabolism.
Yacon is a plant indigenous of the Andean region, whose leaves and tubers are consumed as food in several countries in Latin America. Unlike the normal potato, in which the energy is stored in the form of starch, the yacon potato is rich in inulin, the greatest natural source of FOS, dietary fibers with reduced caloric value.
The consumption of FOS has a positive effect on the intestinal flora, increasing the general health of the gastrointestinal tract. This allows a number of benefits in the body, namely a better absorption of calcium and essential minerals, and greater resistance to disease-causing bacteria.
In addition, when the bacteria digest the FOS, they produce short-chain fatty acids, which have shown positive effects on the metabolism.
We also know that the FOS regulate the creation of certain gastrointestinal peptides that are involved in the rate of gastric emptying and help to modulate food cravings. That means yacon is also an appetite suppressant, helping people eat less in a natural way.
Controlling appetite Improves metabolism Improves the health of the gastrointestinal tract.
❤️ REDUCE CHOLESTEROL and TRIGLYCERIDES – Yacon root contains a type of sugar called fructooligosaccharide, which can lower levels of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein, the “bad” cholesterol. A study published in October 2011 in “Chemico-Biological Interactions” found that diabetic rats supplemented with yacon root daily showed lower levels of fasting plasma triacylglycerol, a triglyceride, and LDL cholesterol.
❤️ The Yacon plant is native to the Andes Mountains. The Yacon root which can look like a cross between a potato and a carrot tastes sweet with a fibrous texture. On long journeys Incas would dig up and eat Yacon to quench their thirst.
