The 7 Health Benefits Of Tequila

We have excellent news for tequila fans because as it turns out, tequila loves you, too and more specifically, your health. We’ve all heard about the negative effects of drinking too much tequila – insert your wild tequila tale here – but in moderation, the tequila may be beneficial to your health. That’s great news since a warm summer day with a prickly pear margarita or a zesty Paloma wouldn’t be the same without a shot of tequila.

If you enjoy tequila as much as the next person, take a cocktail glass, make your favorite tequila drink, and sip your way to better health with these seven advantages.

  1. It Is Safe For Diabetics To Drink

Tequila, according to research, can aid those with type 2 diabetes. Because again, natural sugars found in agave, are non-digestible, blood sugar levels will not rise. It can reduce glucose levels while increasing insulin production.

  1. It Cleans Out The Colon

Blue agave plant is used to make small tequila bottles. This plant includes fructans which aren’t digested. This is encouraging news for that battling colon cancer. Researchers have employed fructans to help carry medications to the colon to battle disorders such as ulcerative colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.

  1. It Can Help With Weight Loss

Paleo, Whole 30, Mediterranean diet, you got nothing on tequila. Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch, but consuming tequila has been proven to decrease the waistline. According to one study, the same agavins that assist with diabetes also help with obesity. This is because agavins behave like dietary fiber, and as anybody who has attempted to lose weight knows, fiber encourages weight reduction.

  1. It Assists In The Fight Against Dementia

Have you had memories from last night and now realized that you did insist on performing karaoke to a song? Perhaps you should have limited yourself to one drink of tequila. According to research, drinking alcohol in moderation, such as tequila, may help in the battle against dementia. But if you overdo it, you’ll be back on stage next Friday night singing who knows what.

  1. It Supports Digestion

Like a good aperitif, the tequila may aid with digestion. A drink before a meal is believed to increase appetite. And a drink afterward can improve digestion. That explains our obsessive desire for chips and salsa while sipping a happy hour margarita.

  1. Its Probiotic

Probiotics present in foods such as yogurt and kimchi are commended for their ability to restore beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Tequila, like yogurt and kimchi, includes probiotics due to its fructans. But keep in mind that to reap the benefits of these probiotics, you must consume them in moderation. If you consume too much, you’ll need to drink kefir or kombucha the next day to get your stomach back on track.

  1. It’s A Freezer

The assumption is that the agave will ease a sore throat, the lime will contribute vitamin C, and the tequila will destroy germs since alcohol kills bacteria, right? Although it is difficult to find a doctor that will prescribe it today in the United States, we do drink a Hot Toddy for a cold, so why not tequila?
