Dr Oz: How to Use Yacon Syrup

Could yacon syrup be the weight loss game changer you have been waiting for? Dr. Oz says the research shows promise, but before everyone goes running to the store to buy it he wanted to conduct his own experiment to see how well it really works. Dr. Oz sent yacon syrup to 60 women and asked them to eat 1 teaspoon before breakfast, lunch and dinner for four weeks. He also asked them to do nothing else different with their diet and to not do any additional exercise. Here is what some of them had to say:

  • Weight loss benefits
  • More frequent bowel movements, which one woman says got to be inconvenient
  • Most found it easy to incorporate into their diet

Dr. Oz says he did not expect all of the women to love yacon syrup, but he wanted to get a good picture of what they all thought.

    More snake oil from Dr. OZ. Why oh why is a brilliant heart surgeon with an Ivy League MBA shilling this crap with silly junk science? Has he no ethics in his pursuit of ratings? This was an uncontrolled study for a month. All results are self-reported (in other words, we have no idea if the weights and measurements reported are accurate in the least). Meanwhile women know that if they report good results they are going to get interviewed on national TV, and even then, 20 out of 60 can’t keep taking the syrup due to the diarrhea and gas. Less than half of the women who started the trial reported “positive” results. And if true, those could easily be due to the laxative effect combined with subtle changes in diet and exercise patterns and optimistic reporting in an desire to be one of the “successful” people. Despite this, within weeks there will a 1000 ads for Dr. Oz miracle weight loss syrup on the web and somebody will be making a fortune giving millions of women literally the runs for their money.

    To all those people who are bad mouthing Dr. Oz for conducting his little experiment…which he never claims is scientific in any way…there was an actual clinical study in 2009 published in the Journal of Clinical Nutrition called “Yacon syrup: Beneficial effects on obesity and insulin resistance in humans”. You can read the text online at their website.

    We need a lot more info on this stuff but in my opinion it’s worth a try.

    Studies have shown that consuming yacon syrup every day can result in significant fat loss, and a
    lower waist circumference and BMI (body mass index) in obese girls
    that are premenopausal. Yacon can be prebiotic, meaning it is a non-digestible food.
    Non-digestible foods stimulate the growth and activity of
    the good bacteria moving into everyone’s
    intestinal tract.

    With many of these qualities, yacon may seem like a miracle food,
    nevertheless its efficacy is based on the science.
    With the highest natural method to obtain fructooligosaccharides, a sugar
    essential for digestion as well as the production of good bacterial, yacon is
    shown to help certain cases of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and various gastrointestinal illnesses.
    Yacon is not just low-glycemic – it possesses a zero rating on the GI,
    making it an excellent alternative for many who must avoid other
    sugars for health reasons. For example, cancer patients might benefit
    from switching over to yacon syrup; at the very least, they will be doing
    less problems for their bodies having its antioxidants
    along with other restorative properties.
