Yacon Root Extract
  • 500mg 60 vegicaps

Fusion Diet Systems Yacon Root Extract provides 500mg of vital prebiotic fiber.

Yacon roots are made up of nearly fifty percent FOS (fructooligosaccharide). The body cannot process FOS so it goes through your system without leaving any sugar that may be absorbed later on.

Recent studies have found that Yacon Root had a significant effect in decreasing body weight, body mass index and waist circumference in women who were obese and premenopausal. It is also believed to help promote healthy bacteria in your body which is important in keeping your colon and digestive system running smoothly. This also helps with weight loss because your body will not be backed up and unable to digest your food properly which can be another source of weight gain.*

The roots and leaves of the Yacon plants also have high levels of polyphenols. Polyphenols are a type of antioxidant that promotes general health.
