Study Shows Drinking Tequila Can Help You Lose Weight
JOSE CUERVO: YOU ARE A FRIEND OF MINE
If drinking a margarita every now and then will help me lose weight, why wouldn't have a couple?
According to the American Chemical Society, sugars called agavins that are found in the agave plant which is used in making tequila, can actually help LOWER your blood sugar. Could this be true?????
Mice that were on a regular diet drank water containing added agavins and ended up eating less overall and had lower blood sugar levels than the mice that hadn’t consumed agavins.
The mice consuming agavins produced a hormone called GLP-1, which apparently keeps the mouse fuller longer and produces insulin, meaning agavins could be beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes. What??!?!?!?
Maybe we should wait for more studies...after all, we aren't mice...but wouldn't it be nice!
