Here Are 4 Reasons To Drink A Shot Of Tequila A Day

To really get the benefits, only purchase tequila that is made from 100 percent agave.

Here are four health benefits of real tequila.

It’s Low-Calorie 

Tequila is made up of agavins, a certain type of indigestible sugars that move through the body unused. The more complex molecular structure of agavins prevents them from spiking blood sugar. These molecules have also been found to simulate metabolism and to help burn fat.

It’s a Probiotic

The agave that tequila is derived from contains fructans, a short-chain polymer that supplies probiotics — beneficial bacteria found in the intestines. Drinking a small amount of tequila may benefit digestive health, but be careful not to overdo it; too much tequila has the opposite effect on the body.

It Helps Digestion

A post-meal shot of tequila may help stimulate digestion, but studies have also found that a shot of tequila before the meal acts as an apéritif, stimulating metabolism and appetite.

It Assists in Transporting Drugs to the Colon

For people suffering from Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), or colitis, a shot of tequila may improve the effectiveness of their medications. The fructans in tequila are natural chemical carriers that essentially ferry the drugs past the corrosive stomach acid to the colon where they are needed most.

Enjoy! Happy National Tequila Day!
