Tequila and Weight Loss….What’s the connection?
Ahhh… tequila! No doubt about it… It causes you to make bad decisions. But new research says the sugars in tequila might also trigger weight loss! And not from that terrible hangover you gave yourself! According to a recent study presented at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society the natural sugars found in the agave plant that produces tequila can trigger weight loss and might help treat diabetes by increasing insulin levels. According to the news story on the science website phys.org, mice consumed their usual diet, but some of the mice had agavins –the agave sugars— added to their water. The mice that were fed the agavins had a smaller appetite and lower blood glucose levels.
