Bottoms up! Drinking Tequila Can Lead To Weight Loss

Wish to lose those extra pounds and at the same time do not want to cut down on alcohol? Drink tequila shots.

According to a research conducted on mice was presented at a meeting of the American Chemical Society, everyone’s favourite party spirit can help lower the blood sugar too. Sugar naturally occurs in the agave plant from which tequila is made from.

The findings revealed that the mice, who were given agavins ate less, lost weight and their blood glucose levels decreased in comparison with other sweeteners such as glucose, fructose, sucrose, agave syrup and aspartame.

Agavins, which is not the same as agave syrup, and are non-digestible, which means they act as a dietary fibre and will not raise the blood sugar, reports Independent.
