Since being featured on the Dr Oz Show late in 2013 sales of supplements containing Yacon Syrup have grown.
Unfortunately this has also led to a rise in products that use slightly dubious sales tactics, such as those that involve trials and auto shipping.
Yacon Root MAX is currently being offered as a trial, but does that automatically mean that it should be avoided? Lets look at this supplement in more detail before we come to any conclusion.
Claims made by Yacon Root MAX
The following claims have been made on the Yacon Root MAX website:
- Burn off unwanted fat
- Boost your metabolism
- Cleanse your body
- Increase energy levels
Each of these claims are what you would expect to see on any website promoting a dietary supplement, let alone one containing Yacon Syrup.
We would have to look at what ingredients are used in Yacon Root MAX before we could verify them.
Ingredients of Yacon Root MAX
It is pleasing to see that Yacon Root MAX has included an image of their packaging for us to view its ingredients.
Often supplements will hide this important information so there is no way of knowing what benefits, if any will be experienced.
Yacon Root MAX contains 1000 mg of Yacon Root in each serving so if used alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise then you should expect to see some promising weight loss results.
Price of Yacon Root MAX
The main issue with Yacon Root MAX is its price, which is handily hidden away in the terms and conditions.
For the 14 day trial there is a $9.95 AUD charge to cover the cost of postage and packaging.
However, what you may not be aware of is that once this trial period ends you will be charged $129.99 AUD with further monthly charges thereafter.
These kind of sales tactics will surely leave some people unhappy and significantly out of pocket.
Is Yacon Root MAX a scam?
Although the price is available in the terms and conditions you should be wary about signing up to such an expensive trial.
These kind of offers are designed to get people to sign up without reading the terms and conditions, and once signed up there is very little you can do to get a refund.
