Here, we report an interesting effect of yacon root flour, a natural product rich in FOS and phenolic compounds, as a dietary supplement. Obstetrics and Gynecology In addition, it is well known that soluble dietary fibers delay fat absorption as we observed during the fat load test, contributing to the hypolipidemic effects of yacon.

Effects of yacon flour on HFD-induced metabolic disease. One of the mechanisms by which the yacon root triggers weight loss seems to be a decrease in energy intake, given our observation of a lower food intake after yacon supplementation.

Yacon Improves the Effects of the Reversion to Standard Diet To identify whether the yacon supplementation potentiate the effects of the HFD reversion to a standard diet, we performed a second experimental design. Bacterial fermentation of FOS in the cecum and proximal colon has been shown to produce short chain fatty acids such as acetate, propionate and butyrate.

Each period was interrupted by a 2-week jnvestigaciones phase. In concordance, increased GLP-1 levels in the colon and in serum were shown when yacon roots were administered to diabetic rats [ 25 ].

Dietary supplements have been proposed to promote weight loss or appetite suppression in the management of obesity.
