Improve Digestive Health

While the body can’t absorb these fructooligosaccharides (FOS), it doesn’t mean that the healthy bacteria in our gut does not find it delicious!

YACON SYRUP contains natural prebiotic materials, stimulating the growth and health of the microflora in our bodies. When our probiotic bacteria are well-taken care of and healthy, our body can maximize its intake of vitamins and minerals.

By optimising the absorption levels of our food, we are able to get more “bang for our buck”, so to speak, when we eat any other foods.

Also, the slight laxative effect of yacon reduces constipation, bloating, and other more serious gastrointestinal conditions, such as gastric ulcers and colon cancer.

“Dieters as well as people suffering from diabetes can safely use yacon syrup as low-calorie sweetener.
