Yes, you read that right. Surprisingly, having tequila occasionally can actually be good for you. But this does not mean your Saturday night drinking spree is good for you. It actually means having a shot of tequila occasionally can have some health benefits. The following are the most profound benefits of having a shot of tequila occasionally.
1. Tequila is Probiotic
Probiotic is a healthy bacteria present in the intestines that helps boost the digestive system and help maintain a healthy immune system. Tequila is made out of fructans which are rich in probiotics, having a moderate amount of tequila can help replenish the probiotics present in the intestine.
2. Tequila helps the integrity of the digestive system
Another profound benefit of having tequila occasionally is that it can help improve the metabolism and appetite. Numerous studies have proven that having a little tequila either before or after a meal can assist digestion due to the probiotics present in it.
3. Tequila can help lower blood sugar
Yes, having a shot of tequila occasionally can actually help diabetic patients. Tequila is rich in agavina which is a form of sugar present in the agave plant. Having an occasional glass can trigger insulin which will help lower the blood sugar level.
4. Tequila can help you lose weight
The American Chemical Society has conducted numerous studies and their findings suggest that there are components present in tequila that can help burn fat. Again, this does not mean that you quit the gym and start drowning yourself in tequila. Having too much tequila actually has the opposite effect hence, moderation is the key.
5. Tequila can help with insomnia
Another prominent benefit of tequila is that it can help improve the quality of your sleep. Tequila has the potential of calming nerves and reducing stress levels, which will improve the quality of your sleep. However, this is only limited to episodic insomnia and will not help with chronic insomnia.
So the next time someone catches you having tequila, you now have everything in your arsenal to justify your booze.
