NZ Yacon Supports Diabetes Wellness

World Diabetes Day is the perfect time to emphasise choosing the proper nutrition to support overall health.

As diabetes rates continue to rise, with over 250,000 New Zealanders affected, the approach to managing the disease has become a critical aspect of public health.

NZFOS+ Yacon Prebiotic is a natural health solution with a unique combination of essential prebiotics, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols.

It nurtures the gut, facilitates optimal nutrient absorption and is crucial in enhancing overall well-being by maximising the potential of high-fibre fruits and vegetables.

Yacon is a plant native to the Andean region of South America and is renowned for its blood sugar-lowering properties. It has been used in healing and medical practices to aid in diabetes treatment, with FOS (fructooligosaccharides) prebiotics proven to reduce serum glucose levels.

“Comprising 99.75 percent Yacon Juice Concentrate, NZFOS+ Yacon Prebiotic is natural. What sets it apart is its sweet and syrupy taste that doesn’t cause blood sugar spikes,” said Leon Henry, NZ Yacon Australasia Pacific Business Development Manager.

“The FOS prebiotics found in it are not metabolised in the digestive system, making them ideal for individuals with diabetes as they do not increase blood sugar levels.”

This revolutionary product offers a tasty and beneficial addition to the daily diet, ensuring that everyone can savour the sweet taste of good health without compromising their blood sugar levels.

World Diabetes Day is on the 14th of November.
