Good news! Learn about the benefits that this famous distillate contains.
Although it is well known that consuming a large amount of alcohol can lead to a high consumption of calories, a new study has arrived that shows exactly the opposite, but only and exclusively with tequila.
According to the American Chemical Society, ingesting this distillate can help the glucose levels in your body level out and even decrease.
The types of compounds found in tequila sugar, which should not be confused with agave, are responsible for not raising glucose levels and adding that unique touch to the famous Mexican drink.
The study was based on scientific evidence in an exact number of mice. Each of the animals was assigned a standard diet in which they drank water with these compounds.

Over time, the mice ate less food and their sugar levels dropped dramatically.
One of the other fun facts that came up during the research was the production of the hormone GLP-1, which is responsible for making insulin and making your stomach feel full for a longer amount of time.
If this study evolves further, this could lead to an alternative for people now suffering from type 2 diabetes and early obesity.
