Researchers at the American Chemical Society have found that you can drink tequila to lose weight

If you are a casual drinker, you'd probably be aware that drinking adds a ton of calories. But a new study is all set to change this perception. It says that drinking Tequila can help you reduce weight.

Last year, the American Chemical Society conducted a research to understand the effects of tequila on blood glucose levels. They found that sugars found in the agave plant that makes Tequila can help lower blood sugar. These sugars are called agavins and occur naturally in the plant. They are non-digestible and hence they don’t raise your blood sugar.

The study was conducted on mice and the researchers found that they ended up eating less, after been given a standard diet, and then water with agavins. The mice consuming agavins produced a hormone called GLP-1, which keeps the stomach full longer and produces insulin. This lead the researchers to believe that agavins could be advantageous for people with type-2 diabetes or struggling with weight-loss issues.

So, now that we know this potential weight-loss secret a round of tequila shots might start sounding more and more tempting.
