Tequila for Weight Loss?


This conclusion was made by Mexican scientists, whose findings were published by the American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting in Dallas. The girls who want to lose weight are already thinking over the new ‘tequila’ diet.


The slimming effect of tequila was revealed due to the sugars contained in its formula. These sugars are natural, extracted from the agave plant. They are called agavins. The substances can help people suffering from diabetes and obesity. They lower blood glucose levels.

However, we should not confuse agavins with the well-known agave syrup. The syrup has no similar health benefits. The agavins contained in tequila are not absorbed by the body, so they do not cause a rise in blood sugar levels. It was also found that they quench hunger for a long time and stimulate the production of insulin.

All this makes agavins helpful for the patients with type 2 diabetes and obese people who need to lose weight.

The magic sugar can now only be found in tequila, which is why the term “tequila diet” was born. However, if you want to try the diet, remember about the side effects of the drink: hangover, health deterioration, and sometimes the loss of self-esteem.
