Drinking Tequila Can Help You Lose Weight!!

Drinking Tequila Can Help You Lose Weight, According To Scientists By Maria G. Valdez | May 07 2015, 08:40PM EDT You won’t believe why drinking tequila might actually help you lose weight. Well, isn’t this a marvelous thing? According to a 2014 study by the American Chemical Society (ACS), sugars found in the plant that makes tequila could lower blood glucose levels for people with type 2 diabetes, and help obese people lose weight, researchers say. According to the study, Agavins, a natural form of sugar found in the agave plant, are non-digestible and can act as a dietary fiber, so they would not raise blood glucose. They are different from the commonly known agave syrup, which is actually very similar to the dangerous high-fructose corn syrup. “We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1, they also increase the amount of insulin,” said Mercedes G. López, Ph.D and one of the researchers. GLP-1 is a hormone that slows the stomach from emptying, and stimulates production of insulin. “Agavins are not expensive and they have no known side effects, except for those few people who cannot tolerate them,” López added. Pretty much what agavins do is help people feel fuller, which could lead them to eat less. To prove that, scientists fed mice a standard diet, and added agavins to some of their water. They discovered that the mice who consumed agavins ate less overall and had lower blood glucose levels. The effects were stronger than other artificial sweeteners like aspartame and agave syrup. The mice consuming agavins also produced the GLP-1 hormone. Although we’re not...

Espolon continues to satisify…

Last week while working in Tomah, WI I had dinner at the Bog (actually in Warren, WI) and tasted for the first time the Anejo from Espolon. It was great and cheap, too cheap I think! I recommend this bottle for anyone’s collection, large or small!! Not preferring to buy a bottle in WI and then carry it home, I called the closest store to my home only to find they don’t carry it!?!? So I went to Espolon Tequila’s website to find out where i can buy it and did not find the anejo displayed there nor on their parent company’s website (Campari), nor their Facebook page…sadly nothing about the Anejo?? What’s up with that?!?!? So, go ask for it! I promise you will not be disappointed, especially as the $30/bottle price point!! If there is something comparable in that price range, please share it with us! Happy...

Welcome Back…

Welcome back, for the last 3 years I have been letting the Taste of Tequila languish, to be honest. I took time to rebuild my consulting business (www.BetterResults.info) from a significant hiatus to invest in the Real Estate Market. Well I am back…Consulting is running great and the Real Estate market has stabilized. Now it is time for more passion and fun and sharing of my love of Tequila. Over these past years, in my opinion, little has really changed in the market…other many new brands, new celebrities and some new tequilarias. And then just yesterday, I saw the first commercial that promotes tequila (alright one brand) in its natural form, without the fancy concoctions, salt or lime!! Just neat and for sipping! Finally progress is being made. It is time for more sharing and educating, so stay tuned as we crank up this website and the mobile app. Happy...
