Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) is a tuber that has been consumed by Incas for centuries because of its numerous health benefits. Nowadays it is becoming increasingly popular as a natural sweetener and weight loss aid, and for good reason. Its sweet taste makes it an excellent addition to any diet.

Yacon for Weight loss benefits

Yacon root contains a type of sugar called fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that helps to reduce appetite by increasing feeling of fullness and consequently decreasing calorie intake. Studies have shown that FOS can help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce cholesterol levels, making it an excellent choice for individuals looking to improve their overall health. 

In addition to its weight loss benefits, Peruvian Yacon also offers numerous other health benefits. It contains high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which can prevent chronic diseases and reduce inflammation in the body. Consuming yacon also helps to improve digestion, increase absorption of essential nutrients, and boost the immune system.
