Time to raise your glass, and prepare the lime as drinking tequila may help you fight obesity and type 2 diabetes. The results were found after a group of researchers in Mexico discovered the health benefits of agave which is the sugar found in tequila.

The study was used on mice, and what was found was that the mice fed agave ate less, and had lower blood sugar levels. So while moderation should always be kept in mind when consuming alcohol, it is one more excuse to pour another shot and enjoy the benefits of agave, in tequila form.
