An improvement in the morphometric parameters was also observed in supplemented rats Supplemental data, Table S1. Further studies are needed in constipated patients to confirm these preliminary data.
It has been shown that it reduces hepatic glucose production and stimulates glucose uptake and fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle [ 51 ].
Yacon roots Smallanthus sonchifolius improve oxidative stress in diabetic rats. This means the journal and Pontificia Universidad Javeriana cannot be held responsible for any ethical malpractice by the authors. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study yacon was administered to 16 healthy individuals 8 males, 8 females in a dose of 20 g daily equal to 6. Bloating is not an uncommon side effect observed with FOS, but bloating-related disturbances were not significantly more often reported with yacon compared to placebo.
Abstract Smallanthus sonchifolius yacona native plant of South America, was observed to improve lipid profile in rodents and humans. Also, it was shown that yacon improves beta cell function and modulates the plasma insulin concentration in diabetic rats [ 2526 ]. Table 3 shows the effects of yacon flour consumption on relative organ weights.
Fat storage and the biology of energy expenditure. Effects of inulin-type fructans on lipid metabolism in man and in animal models.

Experimental studies have demonstrated that the addition of oligofructose to the diet improves the growth of Bifidus and Lactobacillus in the colon enhancing mineral absorption and gastrointestinal metabolism in both humans and animals [ 1619 ].
Effect of yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) on colonic transit time in healthy volunteers.
Bifidobacteria have been shown to be beneficial to the health of the host and to be correlated with a lean state [ 40 ]. A surface response methodology was use to evaluate the product optimization. Vaz-Tostes Md, Viana M. Hence, yacon roots can be considered a potent and useful functional food. The body weight and body length were used to determine the following anthropometrical parameters: Oligosaccharides peaks were identified using sucrose, glucose, fructose, and fructofuranosylnystose as external standards [ 25 ].
Effects of yacon flour on inflammatory markers in HFD-fed rats.

Article in Diabetes Baynes JW et al. Previous Article Next Article. 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.
The total calories in fat diet were Results of the analysis for the yacon flour are shown in Table 1.
Here, we report an interesting effect of yacon root flour, a natural product rich in FOS and phenolic compounds, as a dietary supplement. Rats were injected intraperitoneally with 0.
Gomes da Silva M. Yacon was well tolerated with an excellent side effect profile. In addition, dietary polyphenols directly rel indirectly impact on gut function, decreasing pathogenic bacterial growth and promoting the production of the microbial short chain fatty acids by beneficial microbial populations [ 23 ].
This simple dietary intervention appears to be capable of improving obesity outcomes regardless of susceptibility to an obesogenic nutritional environment. Endl fructooligosaccharides as a potential novel source of prebiotics. High-fat diet-induced obesity rat model: The combination of diet and physical activity is only effective during time in which it is practiced and the available drugs are only moderately effective and have significant adverse effects [ 1011 ].
