There are More Benefits to Tequila Than Those Fantastic Dance Moves

mexican restaurant Elizabethton There are more benefits to tequila than those fantastic dance moves. According to some super scientific research, tequila is good for you. We didn't need someone in a white coat to tell us. It boosts your mood, cures your aliments, helps to get the party started and leaves you feeling on top of the world.

Be prepared to be amazed… the benefits of tequila are numerous:

Lowers Blood Sugar
The agavina, a natural sugar found in the agave plant, prompts insulin production and helps to lower blood sugar.

Cuts the Calories
Whiskey and vodka both call for chasers, tequila is the shot of champions though. Forget the coke or cranberry juice, all you need is a lime and a little salt. No need to waste those calories on a chaser!

Numbs the Pain
Whether its pain of the physical or emotional variety, tequila always has your back. Medically speaking, tequila minimizes pain levels by dilating blood vessels and increases blood flow. Emotionally, it can make you forget your name, let alone your problems.

Party’s Here
Nothing says I’m ready to party like showing up with a bottle of tequila. Wear that crown while you raise that shot glass and bust out a toast, those trendy Fireball drinkers will be coveting your unique and awesome persona.

Fights Cholesterol
Long story short, agavins in tequila help to lower triglycerides and cholesterol. Drink tequila, lower your cholesterol… sounds like a win- win situation.

Makes You Skinny
We aren't counting all the calories in the chips and salsa that usually accompany the shots, but tequila it’s self contains components that aid in weight loss. Research conducted by the American Chemical Society suggested that tequila helped overweight mice lose significant weight. Cheers to that!

Cures Whatever Ails
You Ask any Mexican, tequila will cure all you ailments. Got a cold? Take a shot. Relationship drama? Take a shot. You name it and tequila is guaranteed to cure it… if not it will certainly numb the pain.

Banish the Bloat
There is nothing worse than the bloated feeling you have after a night of drinking, except maybe the hangover. The good news is that tequila works to regulate fat absorption in your intestines and doesn't leave you feeling like a bloated mess.

Helps You Sleep
Next time counting sheep aren't doing the trick, sip a little tequila. It will help you to relax and fall asleep faster and doesn’t come with all the crazy side effects that Ambien does.

No Diabetic Drama
Vodka is a diabetic’s worst nightmare. Tequila, however, contains significantly less sugar than most other liquors, making it a tasty treat for everyone, including diabetics.

Hello My Name is The Boss
Forget dainty wines or girly cocktails, ordering tequila tells the world that you came to party and you mean business.

Basically, tequila is the answer to all the world’s problems. It makes you look and feel like a rock star, is actually not that bad for you, and can act as your therapist. Help make the world a better place and drink more tequila! Cheers, amigos!!

Oh yeah, you should always drink your tequila responsibly. That means no drinking and driving, calling ex's at 3am or any other outlandish behavior. By the way, we aren't doctors and you shouldn't listen to us for medical advice, however if you want to talk Mexican food, we are certified experts!
