    Tequila could help you lose weight, study says

    A study by the American Chemical Society found that the agave plant (the plant that makes tequila) contains sugars that could lower blood glucose levels, possibly helping the over 60,000 Canadians who are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes each year. After weighing the mice daily and checking their glucose blood levels weekly, researchers found that most mice that drank agavins ate less, lost weight and had a drop in blood glucose levels unlike mice that were given other sweeteners. “We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1 (a hormone that slows the stomach from emptying), they also increase the amount of insulin,“ said researcher Mercedes G. López, Ph.D. A finding that “puts agavins in a tremendous position for their consumption by obese and diabetic people,” noted the study.

Researchers analyzed over 86,000 participants between the ages of 40 and 79 and noted how much time they spent watching television each day.
