Do you know that by drinking tequila might help in lose weight? As well as diabetes type 2. This statement has been presented at the National Meeting of the American Chemical Society (ACS) as a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress, a sweetener (agavin) created from the plant used to make tequila could lower blood glucose level. Agavins are non-digestible and can act as a dietary fiber, that is the reason why agavins would not raise blood glucose. Agavins also boosts the production of insulin and acts as a dietary fiber, making people feel fuller. Plus point that agavin is inexpensive and no known side-effect.
The study was done by the researcher (Mercedes G. López, Ph.D) together with her research team was supported by Mondelez International and Agavaceae Produce. This study fed some mice water spiked with agavins—a type of indigestible sugar called a fructan—the animals ate less, lost weight, and reduced their blood sugar more than mice on a control diet.
