There's no doubt that when people like tequila, they really love it! Because when you choose this drink, there really are no boundaries or limitations.
It's like the French fries campaign: you can not eat just one. Do you hear the group of friends who can never decide what to order at the bar and talk about brands of whiskey or vodka? For the drink that will end this discussion is (you're right) tequila!
So be prepared to discover its benefits, some of which you did not even imagine.
1. Help reduce blood sugar
How is it possible? Well, agavina, which is a sugar that comes from the agave plant used to produce tequila, speeds up the production of insulin, and therefore, reduces blood sugar.
2. Help with weight loss
Yes, you've heard correctly: there are certain components in tequila that can help you lose weight. In tests conducted by the American Chemical Society, tequila helped overweight mice lose a significant amount of grams.
3. It does not make you hangover
You can disagree with this, especially if you've only heard the advantages of vodka, but I'm not talking about the diluted tequila that many drink. I mean the one that is 100% agave.
Try to drink it, and check if the headache the next morning becomes a thing of the past.
4. You can drink it alone without wanting to vomit later
Have you ever tried to take shots consecutive vodka? Chances are you want to back down. When it comes to tequila, you can be sure that it will slide smoothly down your throat.
5. Help fight cholesterol
Well, let's be scientists for a moment. The increase of fiber in your diet helps in the reduction of cholesterol levels. Like fiber, agave reduces triglycerides in the blood and cholesterol levels, as determined by the journal Plant Foods For Human Nutrition.
6. Tequila can help treat colds
In the 1930s, doctors in Mexico used this mixture of tequila to combat the common cold: 15 milliliters of white tequila; 15 of agave nectar and 15 of fresh lemon juice.
7. It helps to numb the pain
It has been shown that tequila helps to dilate blood vessels, which improves blood flow by minimizing pain levels. (When it comes to emotional pain, you can bet that tequila is the ideal remedy.)
8. It can serve as a delivery route for drugs
What the hell does this mean? Basically: when taking medications, the acid in the stomach normally breaks them down before they can reach the intestines. Why is this a problem? Because the effectiveness of the medicine decreases. Tequila serves as a protective barrier that opens the way to your digestive system.
9. Diabetics can enjoy it
The high amount of sugar that is present in alcoholic beverages represents a problem for diabetics. Tequila, however, has much less sugar, therefore, it will have much less impact on your blood levels.
10. You will see yourself as a connoisseur on your first date
How many times do women worry about what they will ask for on the first date? I know because I have had countless conversations with friends about whether or not it is appropriate to order anything besides wine. The answer? Order tequila and stand out from the crowd. You will leave a lasting impression. You can be sure that they will remember you as the girl who ordered tequila on the rocks on their first date.
11. It will not make you feel as bulky as vodka and beer
Raise your tequila glass and say: Health!
Tequila helps regulate the absorption of fat in the intestines, and when it comes to alcohol, everyone knows how much the drinkers hate to feel inflamed.
12. You do not have to waste your calories in a shot
One of the best parts of the shots of tequila is that you do not have to mix it with soda or add sugar. It is not even necessary, because the taste of tequila is very good. (If you can not stand it alone, there are always lemons!)
13. Everyone respects a person who arrives with a bottle of tequila
Because she's the only one who really gets the party started!
14. It benefits the colon in a different way than you might think
Researchers from the University of Guadalajara in Mexico state that the blue agave found in tequila helps administer drugs to the colon that are used to treat diseases such as Crohn's disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome and even cancer.
15. Decrease the temperature and help you sleep
Everyone knows that tequila and relaxation go hand in hand. You do not have to drink an excessive amount one or two cups are enough.
The next time you can not get to sleep, try a little drink from Don Julio.
