It is necessary to differentiate it from the commonly known agave syrup, which is actually quite similar to a dangerous high-fructose corn syrup. Dr. Mercedes G. López, Ph.D. and one of the researchers on the study said. “We have found that since agavins reduce glucose levels and increase GLP-1, they also can make you lose weight.”
Is drinking tequila shots one of the easiest ways of losing weight?
GLP-1 is a hormone that slows the stomach from emptying and stimulates the production of insulin. Lopez further added, “Agavins are not expensive and they have no known side effects, except for those few people who cannot tolerate them.” This means that people feel full and, as a result, easier weight loss.

To prove this, the scientists fed mice a standard diet and added agavins to the water. The mice who consumed agavins had lower blood glucose levels. The effects were stronger than other artificial sweeteners and the mice consuming agavins also produced the GLP-1 hormone.
