Quality Encapsulations Yacon Syrup Review

*Disclosure of material connection- I received a bottle of yacon syrup in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own.

I am always on the lookout for things to improve my overall health and since I have a stubborn pounds hanging on that I want to get rid of, one of those things is finding natural supplements that aide weight loss endeavors. I have tried many natural weight loss supplements and the biggest problem I have had with most is that they just taste gross so I can't choke them down. I am so thrilled to have found Quality Encapsulations Yacon Syrup because not only does it do the things it claims to do, it is a sweetener and it is delicious. It takes like a syrupy version of brown sugar. It tastes like sugar without the calories and it is 100% natural from the roots of the yacon plant. A sweetener to help weight loss? Yes, please, sign me up! As someone with a very strong sweet tooth, it is very appealing to "have" to take this syrup three times a day. There are a lot of ways you can use it- in your coffee or tea, as a replacement in baked goods like you would use honey or maple syrup or just straight up- which is the way I chose to take it. The back of the bottle says to take a teaspoon 3 times a day, so I have been taking it before each meal of the day, this is an easy way for me to remember to actually take it. I have been taking the yacon syrup for about a week and a half now and I have definitely noticed some changes-

  • My appetite is smaller. I got full halfway through a hamburger. True story.
  • I have more energy, this is a HUGE deal for me since a. I don't sleep well and b. I have 3 small children, I need all of the extra energy I can get!
  • While minimal, I have noticed a bit of weight loss
  • My very heavy sweet tooth has been noticeably less ravenous. I do not crave sweets constantly and can go without eating them for several days. This alone will help me lose extra pounds!
I am so excited to see how much progress I will make with the yacon syrup once I get through the whole bottle. Maybe I will finally get rid of those stubborn 10 extra pounds! I am definitely going to try it in some recipes as well instead of always just taking it by itself. I am pretty sure it would be to die for in oatmeal and would make a great addition to smoothies or protein drinks.
