Tequila? Healthy?? Find Out How The Devil's Water Could Help THIS Way-Too-Common Problem!

| Filed under: HealthAlcoholScience!GIFs

tequila could stop type 2 diabetes and obesity

Slice up a lime, grab your salt, and get ready to enjoy some smooth tequila because it’s good for you!

Our old bff Science has finally figured out that the natural sugars in agave plants, aka agavins, help protect against type 2 diabetes, along with diet-induced obesity!

And what do we make from the blue agave plant? TEQUILA!

In tests done with mice — aww, sadsies! — one group was given plain water, and others were given various sweeteners. The mice who ingested agavins reduced their food intake, weight, and blood glucose levels! These results were similar to the mice who only drank water.

So what are agavins?! Well, they act like dietary fibers and keep blood sugar the same — which is why they’re a good sweetener!

The bad news is that agavins aren’t readily available, and they’re not super sweet like sugar. Whomp whomp.

The good news is that they’re in tequila, so Happy Hour to you!

    Good news - thanks. I am not diabetic or overweight, but looking forward to my trip to Mexico in May and sampling various margaritas and sipping tequilas - all in the name of scientific research of course.

    Note that the people that did the research are in Mexico and were backed by a grant from the Mexican tequila industry. LOL. Idiots.

    Re: adg100 – The research on the benefits of agave or agavins was plentiful before they tried to twin it with tequila. Search it. It's still kind of a stretch to equal tequila with health food, lol.
