According to one recent study, the tequila can help you if you want to lose weight. Yes, we are not joking. The tequila can help you to lose weight.
Not only that, but the tequila will also lower your blood sugar. This is one great new for the people with type-2 diabetes.
This amazing news is a result of one study conducted at the American Chemical Society. Agavina is a sugar that comes from the agave plant which is used in the production of tequila, and it lowered the blood sugar and triggered the insulin production in one experiment with mice. Also, the sweetener helped the mice that were overweight to lose some weight.
Agavins, unlike fructose, sucrose and glucose, is not absorbed by your body, so it won’t increase the blood glucose.
This doesn’t mean that you need to drink tequila with every meal, but the agavins are a type of fiber that creates a feeling of fullness stomach, and it suppresses the appetite.
The scientists believe that agavins are a usable light sweetener substitute, they are sugars that have a low glycemic index, highly soluble and a neutral taste, but they are not metabolized by humans.
These days about 26 million Americans have diabetes, and 2 million are getting diagnosed annually.
It is good to know that there is a potential of developing a different kind of sweetener that actually lowers the sugar levels instead of raising them.
