Can I now opt for tequila with dinner instead of a hearty glass of milk?
WELL MOM, SCIENCE SAYS I CAN!
According to Science Daily, “The blue variety of the Agave tequilana has substances capable of improving the absorption of calcium and magnesium, essential minerals to maintain bone health. This has been demonstrated by research conducted at the Center for Research and Advanced Studies (Cinvestav) in center Mexico
Dr. Mercedes López, leader of the project, states that “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.”
To reach this conclusion, the research team conducted various experiments with animal models. The procedure consisted of removing the ovaries from female mice in order to induce osteoporosis. The next step was to administer agave fructans and eight weeks later a femur sample was taken to measure the absorption of minerals and osteocalcin, protein that indicates the production of new bone.”
So yeah, you might be tearing off your clothes, starting bar fights, or blowing up your ex’s phone but YOU’RE DOING THIS FOR STRONGER BONES.
So do you, boo.
