We’ve got three reasons why margaritas are actually good for you, and we’re over here serving up our Chattanooga margarita selection all day, every day for your benefit.

1– A Tasty Source of Vitamin C

Margaritas are made with lime juice, which is very high in vitamin C. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has multiple imperative functions. It protects cells and helps keep them healthy, and it helps you maintain healthy skin, bones, cartilage, and blood vessels. Vitamin C also helps to boost the immune system to arm your body to fight off potential illness.

2– A Gluten-Free Bev

Because margaritas are made with tequila which is a grain-free liquor, they are the perfect gluten-free cocktail! Most alcoholic beverages contain grain which means those who are grain-sensitive can’t always partake. Tequila, however, is made from the blue agave plant, so those gluten-free party animals can let loose without issue!

3– A Digestive Boost

Another potential benefit to sippin’ a marg during or after your meal is that tequila contains some organic compounds that can be good for digestion. The agave plant used to make tequila contains high levels of inulin, a compound that helps the digestive system by growing good bacteria. That means that tequila itself is practically a digestif.

Got Margs? – Amigo Mexican Restaurant

One Mercedes Lopez, a scientist from the Center for Research and Advanced Studies in Mexico, even stated in 2017, “The consumption of fructans contained in the agave [plant], in collaboration with adequate intestinal micriobiota, promotes the formation of new bone, even with the presence of osteoporosis.” – The New York Post

What do all those big words mean? According to their research, tequila can help boost bone health even by making you more likely to absorb calcium! The patent is pending, but you better believe we are looking into trademarking “Got Margs?” this instant!

All these potential benefits aside, margaritas are basically heaven in a salt-rimmed glass. If you’re on the hunt for Chattanooga margaritas, we hope you’ll stop by your neighborhood Amigo and treat yourself to one or two– because the only thing better than a marg is two of them.
