Yacon Syrup was given to me free of charge on the proviso I complete a review. To be clear this is not a paid review and the opinions I am about to write are 100% my own.
What is Yacon Syrup?
In short Yacon Syrup is a sweet gorgeous syrup which has been proven to aid digestion and weight loss. It appears to be taking the US by storm and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to try it.

Although, I can not confirm I have found all ten benefits (thats not to say they are not there) I can support several of them, here is what I found...
The syrup itself is a sticky gloupy spoon of of heaven. It's smooth, thick, ultra sweet and has a subtle hint of fennel. The taste is devine and I happily took this three times a day before each meal.
I instantly noticed results. I found from day one I was feeling fuller for longer and I have no doubt that Yacon Syrup has helped me stop snacking between meals. I also found that whilst taking Yacon a simple salad at lunch - with no meat or carbs was sufficient.
Throughout both weeks I also noticed that my stomach felt better, I wasn't feeling bloated or sluggish anymore. Yacon is reported to help digestion and this coupled with my healthy eating regime of cutting out processed and high carb foods made me feel brilliant and full of energy all day long.
Overall Yacon has helped me kick start my diet in the most delicious way - I lost a total of 5.5lbs in the last two weeks. (YAY!)
I have an ultra sweet tooth and so have just ordered a second bottle. This time I am going to test out a few recipes for sweet treats without the guilt!
If you are struggling to avoid snacks or want to diet but enjoy a sweet treat then I would recommend Yacon Syrup, it is readily available on Amazon and reasonably priced.
