Tequila is great for a lot of things — A good time. A great margarita. A delicious dessert. A classy cocktail. Regardless of how you enjoy it, when tequila is on the menu, you know it’s about to get fun. But what if we said that ultra-premium tequila can actually be good for your health?
It’s not cold-pressed kale juice, but there are a few qualities that make tequila superior to other forms of alcohol. Here are our top 5 benefits for drinking 100% agave tequila.
Can Help You Lose Weight
Who would have thought, when used in moderation, that tequila can stimulate your metabolism and provide weight loss benefits? It’s because of the agavins which are the natural sugars found in the agave plant.
100% agave tequila doesn’t raise your blood sugar making it a much better option than other spirits. What better way to maintain your weight and lower blood sugar levels than with a snifter of Señor Rio Tequila!
Good For Your Bones
When most people take a drink for bone health, they reach for a glass of milk. New research says it might be time to add tequila to the list.
A scientist found that the blue weber agave plant, which is used to make tequila, contains substances that help bolster your absorption of calcium and magnesium. Both of these are essential in building healthy bones and another reason to enjoy tequila without guilt.
Might Help With Digestion
Tequila might not be your digestif of choice, but we think it’s time to change that. In fact, studies suggest it might be the perfect choice to jump-start your metabolism after a meal.
If you’ve done any reading on gut health, you’ve probably heard of inulin, a type of soluble plant fiber which your gut bacteria converts to short-chain fatty acids that help nourish your colon. The agave plant, which is used to produce tequila, contains high levels of inulin. Bottoms up, everyone!
You Don’t Get a Hangover
When you drink 100% agave tequila, you reduce the chances of having a hangover. Those tequila brands that are not made from 100% agave plants, contain other sugar alcohols that have negative impacts on the body.
The less sugar you consume, the less likely you will get a hangover when drinking tequila. If you use tequila in a cocktail, keep in mind that even though the tequila is low in sugar what you mix it with will likely add more sugar.
Life’s Too Short
At Señor Rio, we believe that not all tequilas are created equal and that life is too short to drink bad tequila.
Our recipe goes back three generations using a unique process that creates an all-natural, flavorful and smooth tequila. Once you taste it, you won’t want to drink anything else.
