Meeting your weight loss goals requires hard work, commitment, and perseverance but even the most committed can find themselves in need of an extra boost. With so many weight loss ‘magic’ pills that make unrealistic claims, we feel the need to extensively research any weight loss product to see if it is credible. This review is going to examine Fusion Diet Systems Yacon Root Extract. Yacon is derived from a plant that is commonly found in South America. It has was dubbed as a ‘diet potato’ because it looks like a potato and is believed to have properties that aid in weight loss. It contains fructooligosaccharides which are sugar molecules that connect in a way that is unrecognizable to the digestive system so it can stimulate the taste buds, causing you to feel full, but remain undigested. It is also believed to have beneficial effects on the metabolism, all factors that can lead to weight loss.

Fusion Diet Systems Yacon Root Extract 500 mg Review – Conclusion
This Yacon Root Extract supplement appears to be decent. It comes in easy to swallow VegiCaps that contain 500 mg of Yacon Root Extract per VegiCap. However, this product is one of the most expensive Yacon Root products that are currently available on the market. At $198.99 for a 60 VegiCap bottle, it is more than five times the price than the next highest Yacon Root product we have seen. The manufacturer also does not offer a money-back guarantee so purchasing this product can potentially leave you at a significant financial loss if you are not satisfied. There are also nearly no consumer reviews to attest to the quality of this product. All in all, considering the exorbitantly expensive price, the lack of a manufacturer’s guarantee and lack of consumer reviews we feel that this product is too risky to invest in.
