How to use Yacon syrup?

A caution is needed when consuming Yacon syrup. Precise measures should be followed because failure to do so may subject one to side effects. The side effects such as nausea and diarrhea are commonly known as resultants of overdoses of this syrup. There could be other side effects that are more severe. Therefore, follow the recommended daily amounts or as per doctor’s recommendation.

Yacon syrup can be used for various purposes. It is said to relief constipation, reduce weight gain, improve digestion, boost metabolism, eliminate toxins and enhance absorption of minerals in the body. For weight reduction purposes, consume a teaspoon daily of pure Yacon syrup. It can be consumed either before or with meals. Overdoses are discouraged. Sadly many people do take overdoses sometimes in the hope that they will lose weight fast. That’s wrong information with this syrup.

For help in alleviating constipation and in easing bowel movements, a measure of 1 to 2 teaspoons may be taken for Yacon syrup. This should be a daily limit of taking this syrup. More doses can cause diarrhea as a side effect or may cause other related diseases. The syrup can also be used in many recipes that are consumed daily. As long as recommended measures are followed in the recipes, that could be a better way of consuming the syrup. However, this syrup is sensitive to higher temperatures. The temperatures could possibly harm the nutrients that the syrup has. Therefore, temperatures below 70 degrees Celsius are encouraged.

Exceptions on higher temperatures go to addition of Yacon syrup in coffee or tea. It can still retain its nutrients. But cooking and baking under higher temperatures can destroy the nutrients. Generally, this syrup can be used as a substitution of the household sugar which is high in calories and therefore likely to raise blood sugar level.

Yacon syrup, on the other hand, has fewer calories making it suitable for anyone allergic to sugar or even those suffering from sugar diabetes. This syrup is not intended to cure any disease, and thus it is not necessarily a cure for diabetes but it is suitable to be used by those patients since it does not trigger the blood sugar levels. It is also low glycemic syrup. Tests have proved that the syrup is capable of regulating both the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

There are therefore many ways to use Yacon syrup. It can be used to serve many purposes, viz. control body weight, alleviate constipation, boost the digestive system, and cleanse the body off toxins and wastes and many more. All these properties are attributed to the contents of the syrup, mainly made of Fructooligosaccharides and unilin. It is also a source of essential minerals such as calcium, potassium, and iron. Furthermore, it is rich in antioxidants and fibers. To use the syrup, follow the recommended daily dosage as overdoses are detrimental. Only follow the recommendations of eating a tablespoon or follow the doctor’s order.
