Yacon Concentrate NZFOSplus

Functional Whole Food With Minimum Processing

The sugar in yacon is mainly fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that pass through the digestive system without being metabolised, as the human system doesn’t have an enzyme to hydrolyse FOS. Therefore, it is good for people with diabetes and all people concerned about blood sugar levels. It is probably the only natural supplement of FOS without chemical purification. Therefore, Yacon Concentrate also retains the advantage of other plant constituents such as Chlorogenic Acids (CGA), Bioflavonoid, and Potassium.

Why New Zealand grown yacon?

Three cultivars of Yacon were brought into New Zealand by Plant & Food Research in early 1990’s. Dr. Robert Welch, Dr. Jim Douglas, and their team experimented with different cultivars in ten growing areas across north and south of New Zealand for the highest production of natural FOS. New Zealand is now growing some of the most FOS-abundant yacon in the world.

Why take prebiotic FOS?

The human gut microbiome is one of the most promising areas of study in medicine and human biology. Research has that most of the modern plagues can be traced back to an imbalance gut microbiome. Studies have shown that prebiotic FOS can selectively nourish the good bugs, and create an environment that inhibits the bad ones, helping to reset the balance of your gut microbiome.

Why natural FOS?

In 2013, researchers from Japan compared the difference of the prebiotic effect between yacon and commercialised FOS. The study shows that natural FOS is capable of stimulating gut microbes to produce twice as much beneficial SCFA (Short Chain Fatty Acids) as commercialised FOS can.

“Living with chronic constipation isn’t always easy, but for me this beautiful product has been a game-changer. In 2 weeks I have shed 4kg, skin is clear and feeling much less sluggish, even energised. The bloat has gone down significantly too! I am so happy now for I can minimise symptoms & restore my body naturally. Anyone who owns a body – particularly those with tricky tummies – will benefit.”

Sidhu K Testimonial

“I have been taking Yacon Concentrate for around 4 to 5 months now. I’m a Type 2 Diabetic. Since having Yacon daily, I have noticed an improvement in my blood sugars. They no longer fluctuate throughout the day as they did before. An example, prior to taking the syrup, if I did not eat my lunch at 12 on the dot, this would result in a blood sugar low pretty promptly, making me want to drink or eat something fast! I now have no issues if I eat my lunch a little later, often lasting until 1pm or later with no crashes! Also I feel my eyesight has improved as I found myself in a situation where I needed to read a book and did not have my glasses with me. Usually I wouldn’t be able to read it, but I attempted it and much to my surprise I was able to read the few pages I needed to with no trouble and without my glasses. This has not happened before and I’d attribute this to Yacon. My husband and I are very pleased with the results and will continue to have the Yacon daily (20 – 30 grams daily). Thanks so much!”
