Boulder, CO, December 19, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- This may all be about to change with a new product just released by Gold Source Labs called Yacon Syrup Gold. Yacon Syrup Gold might be a new product, but it comes from the root of South America's yacon plant, which isn't new at all. In fact, the root of the yacon plant has been used by the Incas for centuries for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Gold Source Lab's new Yacon Syrup Gold captures the benefits of the yacon root in a concentrated syrup which is not a supplement or a pill, but a natural food source. And this tasty new confection may help solve two of the most challenging health problems in today's society: Obesity and Diabetes.
According to the Center for Disease Control, obesity costs our country nearly $150 billion a year. Meanwhile, USA Today recently reported that nearly 26 million Americans are afflicted with Type 2 Diabetes, while in China the number is a staggering 114 million… and the numbers continue to rise. And researchers in these studies point to the over-consumption of processed foods as a major factor. Fructose is found in excess throughout the processed food industry, contributing to massive over-consumption and sugar addiction.
According to Gold Source Labs CEO Mark Adams, unlike glucose, which is a good source of energy, fructose needs to be broken down first by the liver to be used as energy. Adams says, "Fructose can be a big problem for most people because in excess it gets stored as fat by the liver." The types of sugars found naturally in Yacon Syrup are called fructans which taste just as sweet as fructose, but have half the calories and also one other big distinction. They are not digested or absorbed by the stomach, but instead pass straight through to the intestines. This results in some major health benefits:
• It provides an all-natural, good tasting sweetener which can be substituted just about anywhere sugar is found in one's diet while avoiding the harmful side effects of fructose
• It provides diabetics with a nearly zero glycemic index form of sugar which helps regulate insulin and blood sugar levels
• It can help lower cholesterol, increase nutrient absorption, and help ward off allergies and candida albicans because the fructans provide essential food for the beneficial gastrointestinal flora in the intestines
Yacon Syrup has also been shown to lower levels of the hunger hormone grehlin, and could have far-reaching effects in helping reduce obesity. Adams explains, "Yacon Syrup is already being used throughout the food industry in South America, and it's about time we follow suit in the U.S." He also stresses that Yacon Syrup is not a substitute for healthy eating and sensible exercise but adds, "Yacon syrup gives folks the opportunity to not only replace unhealthy food but add something that tastes good to their diets that can have major health benefits as well - it's a no-brainer."
Gold Source Lab's Yacon Syrup Gold comes in a 8 oz. bottle. For health benefits it's recommended to take 1 teaspoon three times daily before meals, but it can also be used as a sugar substitute in foods such as oatmeal, yogurt, salad dressings or in baking recipes. However, since Yacon Syrup is high in prebiotics and fiber, it could cause extra trips to the bathroom when taken in larger amounts. Adams advises, "Everyone is different, so folks should start out with a teaspoon a day and work their way up from there."
