Let’s get the record straight - drinking in excessive amounts is NOT good for you. We all know that.
But we’ve just heard some surprising new studies revealing that drinking tequila might be sorta kinda good for your bones…
According to Science Daily, substances found in the blue Agave tequilano plant (used to make tequila), improve our body’s ability to absorb calcium and magnesium - which are good for your bones!
Research from the Centre for Research and Advanced Studies, led by Dr. Mercedes López, it’s been revealed "the consumption of fructans contained in the agave, in collaboration with adequate intestinal micriobiota, promotes the formation of new bone, even with the presence of osteoporosis."
The study found that mice that ingested agave fructans produced 50 percent more osteocalcin - a protein that shows new bone production, than mice that did not.
But SLOW DOWN before you jump to conclusions.
Shots of tequila are NOT the same as eating these fructans directly from the plant.
So don’t go binge-drinking.
However, this news is a huge step forward in helping people with osteoporosis!
