We’re not encouraging drinking, underage drinking, overage drinking or any form of alcoholism for that matter but we thought you might want to know that studies by the American Chemical Society shows that there is a link between tequila and weight loss.

Apparently, agavina – the sugar found naturally in the agave plant that is used to make tequila – can trigger insulin production help lower your blood sugar.

Basically agavins, a sugar that comes from the agave plant used to produce tequila, triggered insulin production and lowered blood sugar in an experiment conducted with mice. Agavins also appears to be able to help people feel fuller, which could lead you to eat less.

We’re obviously not suggesting a liquid diet (if you know what I mean), but the next time you have to choose between tequila or vodka, maybe you want to go for the “healthier” option?
