  Yacon
Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) leaf  and tuber
 
Uses: Diabetes and improves digestion
Yacon is a tasty, potato-like root vegetable found in Peru. Historically, yacon has been used in South America to lower blood sugar in diabetes and improve digestion. Yacon roots are a rich source of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) and have a long use tradition as food in the Andean region

It appears that substances in yacon have antioxidant, anti-microbial, blood sugar lowering, and liver protecting properties. However, this research has only been in the laboratory and animals
Essential Oils in Yacon
Three compounds--beta-pinene, caryophylene and y-cadinene have been found as the predominant essential oils

The potential of yacon tubers to treat hyperglycemia, kidney problems and for skin rejuvenation and the antihyperglycemic and cytoprotective activity of its leaves seems to be related mostly to its oligofructan and phenolic content, respectively
