Yay for Yacon Syrup!!

 I am trying out Yacon syrup. Anyone familiar with it? Not a lot of people are. I just heard of it a few months ago. But it's a Sweetening Agent  deprived from tuberous roots of the Yacon Plant.

Some people eat the roots that have diabetes or digestive disorders.
But it is popular for weight loss, and some people take it for kidney disorders.

Many people use it as a substitute for artifical syrup for pancakes, or a coffee/tea sweetner and other beverages, or cereal.

It's proven to boost metabolism,  lower blood pressure,  as well as increase fiber and antioxidants.
Refrigeration is not necessary.  It needs to be stored in a cool, dry place and kept in dark areas, protected from light. I keep it in the the kitchen cabinet farthest from my oven. Laundry room isn't a good ideal either cause of the heat.

So now that you know a little bit about Yacon Syrup, I'm gonna introduce to you the brand. Sold by, Life & Food, 100% Pure, Raw, Organic.
Supports Healthy Digestion
Contains Prebiotics
Boosts Metabolism
Increases Fiber
It's made in the USA and is certified Organic.  It's Gluten Free, no artificial ingredients,  no preservatives,  no fillers, or wheat and is GMO free! Order yours here.

It comes in an 8 oz bottle, if taken as a dietary supplement you use one teaspoon 3 times a day before meals. 
It actually has a good thick consistency,  if you're thinking it's gonna be something like a nasty bitter taste like ginseng root or something.  No. No... absolutely not. It's the total opposite.  It kinda reminds me of a chocolatey syrup taste, sorta. It's actually good am I'm putting it on my pancakes tomorrow and I'm going to use it as a weight loss aid, starting tomorrow.  

Over the next few days, check back often to see my full review and how I like it as a dietary supplement.  If you have any questions please comment! 

Before I log out tonight, I'm gonna show you what it looks like. 

It has a good dark color. As you can see its very thick. A little goes a long way, too. This 8 oz bottle should last me a while. I'm just trying to cut back on the amount of high fructose syrup I eat. It's gonna be perfect for my morning coffee, because I have to pack my coffee full of sugar, I don't use artificial sweetener cause of the aspartame and other harsh chemicals in it. 
Using Yacon Syrup is going to be very beneficial to my family and I. And everyone can find its own use.

So now that I have been testing Life & Food Yacon Syrup, for a few days, I actually have to say I love it. I have also been using it for a weight loss aid. With most weight loss meds or drinks, it always gives me theshivers and just makes me so nervous and makes my heart race. Thats why I cant take them. So this is perfect for me or anyone else that cant take weight loss pills because of that. Plus they are dangerous. So im scared to take them. This has a nice flavor, i dont get really nervous and increase heart heat, I get a good little energy boost and its all organic and pure. 

I love it with my morning coffee, over the past few days, i have slacked down on my sugar and high fructose syrup intake and so far my body can fell it, its not much so far, but its an improvement. What i love most is that it doesnt take a lot to add to give my coffee a sweet nice taste, just a small amount.
My husband is a big coffee head, he has to have a 24 ounce coffee, every morning, packed full of sugar and creamer and hazelnut syrups. From the beginning he has refused to try my Life & Food Yacon Syrup because he says he likes his coffee just the way he does it. I am always on him to cause he will use about 10 sugar packets or more probably. So this morning we got up and made our coffee, we sit down on the table, and we had the same cups, his was packed full of sugar and mine just had Life & Food Yacon Syrup, so the phone rang, he ran after it, and guess what I did!! I switched cups!! I went on and tried his and nearly spit it out. It was so sweet i couldnt taste the coffee, yuck, but he came back and started sipping and all the sudden his eyes got huge, and looked at me like, oh im gonna get u back!That is one thing he doesnt like to be joked with is his food and drink, he is very pickey!! But needless to say, he actually loved it. he loved the flavor.. So now he says he is more open to trying it on other stuff. 
I put it in my kids oatmeal and they love it too. I am gonna have to get this stuff by they gallon!! Just kidding, i would tho. But this 8 ounce bottle will last a good bit. 
So I have to say i love this product and give it a 10. My family loves it and Im happy!! I have tried a few different brands and this is by far the best flavored I have had yet. Great job, Life & Food!!

  1. Sounds good to me I'll definitely have to try this out. And its great that its good for you too. I love making pancakes and waffles for breakfast but I know that syrup isn't always great for your waistline and too much sugar can be bad for your health. But if I can have my favorite breakfast foods and still keep my figure then I'm all about it :)

    1. Yeh that's what I'm trying to work on my waist lol

  2. Sounds good, and I had never heard of it before. I think I might have to seek it out to try, since it tastes sweet and has health benefits.

    1. It is one of my favorite brands. Very good flavor.

  3. Never heard of this before. Great Review.
