While that saying may go “One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor”, there are a lot more positives to downing the Mexican spirit on a night out. But let’s be real, only those made from the blue agave plant are worth your while as though cane-based wannabe’s are not going to help you nor your head. Quality is key, but so is moderation. So this weekend, just take shot of tequila and maybe you’ll experience one or more of the following benefits:
Acts as a sexual confidence booster
Tequila serves as a natural aphrodisiac. The distilled alcohol is rich in fructans and acts as a probiotic and prebiotic that feeds the body healthy bacteria to balance out the immune system. Apparently, recent studies have suggested those probiotics enhance your sexual drive. Rawr.
Makes for a mean skin exfoliant
Just like champagne, tequila is considered a cleaning analgesic, which basically means it has properties which removes excess dirt and oil from the skin. Luxury spars are even using it as an ingredient in skin treatments, detoxifying and the tightening of the pores. Try this DIY Margarita Scrub:
Shreds the fat
Sure, you’re on a diet so you have given up alcohol. Well, that’s a load of bullshit.
Tequilas boast a specialty sugar named agavin that carries weight-loss properties and doesn’t increase blood sugar levels. It also reduces fats and sparks metabolism to burn (you guessed it) calories.
Just don’t make drunk food-run decisions after consumption and you’ll be fine.
Makes you less prone to hangovers
There’s nothing sexy about a hangover unless you don’t let it get to you and can rock it like no other. But tequila – those made with 100% agave – has a low sugar content that deters ones body from feelings those awful effects in the morning. (Oh, and here’s a hint – stick to silver tequilas.)
Improves your beauty sleep
You know when you get home and just pass the f out after a night out that involves tequila, no matter how on form you were just minutes before? Shame, it happens to me all the time. Well, it’s the tequila. Helping one to enter dream world just that quicker, it’s a brilliant curb of insomnia.
Works as a stress relieving cure
A shot a day keeps the therapist at bay. How’s that for a new and improved saying? A shot of tequila will help you calm those nerves and reduce anxiety. Voila.
