Overweight or Have Type II Diabetes? Tequila May be What the Doctor Ordered

Just came across the headline. That if you’re overweight or have Type II diabetes, a shot or two of tequila could be good for you.

Study: Drinking Tequila May Be Beneficial To Those Who Are Overweight Or Have Diabetes

Yep. It got my attention. Now, we’ve heard that a glass or two of red wine is a good idea and heart smart. Seems that a drink or two of Tequila could be good for you too!  According to usfinancepost.com

American Chemical Society (ACS) released a study last Sunday that suggests there may be a natural sweetener that can reverse type 2 diabetes and aid in weight loss.The report named, “Agavins as Potential Novel Sweeteners for Obese and Diabetic People,” found that during a study with lab mice, the main ingredient found in tequila – agavins -  was able to lower insulin levels in those with diabetes and shrink the waistlines of overweight mice.

The study suggests that the reason for such drastic health improvements was because unlike glucose, fructose, and sucrose, agavins are fibrous and can’t be absorbed by the body. For this reason it also helps to lower blood sugar levels instead of raising it.

Hey, who knew!  If you were stocking up for the basketball games, or were just looking to change it up a bit, or watching your weight, ask for tequila!
