Drinking Tequila Can Help You Lose Weight [VIDEO]
This is the most awesome news ever. I'm not sure exactly how scientifically accurate this is but, if it was on the internet it has to be true right?
Sugars found in the plant that makes tequila could lower blood glucose levels for people with type 2 diabetes, and help obese people lose weight. Agavins, a natural form of sugar found in the agave plant, are non-digestible and can act as a dietary fiber, so they would not raise blood glucose.
One of the researchers, Mercedes G. López, Ph.D, added:
“We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1, they also increase the amount of insulin. Agavins are not expensive and they have no known side effects, except for those few people who cannot tolerate them.” Pretty much what agavins do is help people feel fuller, which could lead them to eat less.
There you go. You're welcome.
