Although Yacon syrup is a great weight loss addition, tastes great and contains high FOCs ( fructooligosaccharides) it is not for everyone. People suffering from diarrhea and loose stools should not take Yacon syrup. If they do it may cause flatulence, diarrhea, bloating and nausea.
The reason for this being that the main weight loss maximizer inside of Yacon syrup is the science that the body can’t digest it. This means that it is automatically digested and doesn’t take time to transfer to fats within the body. This in turn means that your digestive system is over working and may cause problems if you already have the above mentioned symptoms.
