Yacon Helps to Lose Weight:
Yacon syrup has been studied in the obese and slightly dyslipidemic pre-menopausal woman. Yacon increased satiation and helped these women to lose weight and waist circumference, lower their cholesterol and other lipids that were slightly high, and improved digestion.
Helps to lose weight by suppressing appetite, no side effects in general
Studies of laboratory of sub-chronic ( up to 4 months) Yacon root consumption showed no variation in the levels of glucose in the blood, hypoglycemic activity, in normal rats and reduction of serum triacylglycerol levels after eating, post-prandial. There was ceratin beneficial metabolic activity and not toxicity.
Another study in Argentina in 2018, feeding mice a high-fat diet for 30 days, evaluated the effects of addition of yacon flour on the quality of goat milk yogurt and investigated the metabolic effects of its regular consumption on a high-fat diet.
The formula of yacon flour with goat milk showed higher nutritional values, less lactose, it tasted good, had more probiotic microorganisms and a shelf life of at least 30 days, increased prebiotic fructooligosacharides.
Supplementation of goat yogurt with yacon to a high-fat diet for 30 days, resulted in lower body weight, body mass index, fasting glucose levels, and lower atherogenic indices of rats. This shows evidence that goat yogurt + yacon is an excellent functional food that avoids the metabolic impact of high-fat feeding.

Hi Shellie, yes, yacon can help you release some weight, it has been used for a lot of years in its different forms. Thank you for your comment.
Seems I need some yacon. This is the first time I am hearing about this plant. I have been battling with about 6 pounds for over a year. I have used different diets and programs. I don’t eat much and I am fit. There are just these last few pounds that might need with a yacon nudge. About how long does it take to show results?
It depends on how often you substitute all carbohydrate-rich foods, like bread, pasta, rice, potato, cookies, with greens and add yacon. If you can do that, I could say that you would begin to feel lighter in a week. Try with a small portion first and see how you feel. You have to be consistent and eat a variety of other nutritious foods according to your size. Thank you for your comment.
