In my travels here on the WWW I came across a company called Simple Health. This company was started by someone like you or me. Someone that was into health and fitness. Someone who seen all the claims out there for what was good and what was bad. It does get confusing.
She decided to research the good and the bad and eventually Simple Health was born.
When you visit their website you will find a lot of helpful information about different health issues, as well as be able to buy a couple of their products. One of them being a product called Yacon Syrup. I had never heard of a yacon before, so I looked it up. The syrup is made from a yacon root which grows natively in the Andes mountains in South America. This plant has been eaten and used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years in South America.
Some of the health benefits supposedly brought to you via Yacon is:
Lowers blood sugar and improves cholesterol
increases immunity, increases brain function and decreases inflammation
Great for Weight loss
How does it taste?
I enjoyed adding mine to my coffee. Just a small bit gave me enough sweetness to make it taste really good. It is so much healthier to use this then the sugar substitute or sugar itself.
While I didn’t pour this straight on pancake or waffles it can be done. If you go to the Recipe section the website you will see some really great recipes using this syrup. Recipes like cookies and eggnog, even recipes for veggies. You can see those recipes HERE
