HEALTHNEX YACON SYRUP
***My Personal Review***
I am attempting to find new things to use in my food that are better for me than regular sugar and some of the other sweeteners that can cause a lot more problems. I used to bake a lot and I haven't baked much lately, but once in a while I do get the "bug" and have to do it. I normally don't even eat what I bake - I do it because it is stress-relieving for me :)
I am also in the early stages of Type 2 diabetes so eating healthier and using less sugar is more important than ever for me. And Yacon Syrup is supposed to be very good for blood glucose levels and also as a weight loss product. But I didn't know that it was also good for your kidneys. Now, for me the kidney benefits were HUGE because my 7 year old daughter has Williams syndrome and along with this syndrome comes a proclivity for renal problems. I do everything I can to make sure my daughter eats healthy BUT as anyone who has kids surely knows, they are picky eaters and although she is 7 her developmental stage is about 3 years of age which makes her a toddler. Yeah. So multiply the average toddler pickiness by about 10 and you get my daughter LOL. It is a daily struggle with her. She loves candy and sweets and of course cookies but they have to be chocolate chip cookies. I keep her away from as much sweet stuff as I can, but I do give her sweets maybe once a day to keep her happy. So I decided to try making her favorite some chocolate chip cookies with the Yacon Syrup instead of some sugar. And guess what? She loved it - never noticed that it was different! And let me tell you - this child smells everything ... she notices if there is a teeny tiny amount of butter on pasta and will turn her nose up at it. So when she didn't notice a difference it was a huge thing!
I love the smell of this product - I am a HUGE fan of yams and this reminds me faintly of them. It also has a little bit of the molasses smell, so you get a nice rounded off sweetness in whatever you use it for. The best part is that you can use this in drinks, baking, meals, OR you can just take it as a dietary supplement! It is suggested that you take 1 tsp a day 3 times a day. It makes a great sweetener for butter to spread on your favorite breads. You can basically use this for anything you want which makes it extremely versatile. And the bottle is small enough if you wanted to take it somewhere you would be able to slip it into your purse or bag. This way you could have it wherever you wanted without worry :) And of course it is PURE and 100% natural which is a huge deal these days. It has tons of antioxidants and everything you need to get healthy! Grab a bottle of it now and give it a whirl - I promise you won't be disappointed! Oh and did I mention that it also has prebiotic and probiotic properties??? So it supports your immune system as well.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
