Wellllll, maybe that’s not entirely true. HOWEVER, the science community has recently unearthed new evidence that shows the agave plant (from which tequila is made) may contain healing properties that would treat osteoporosis! Dr. Mercedes Lopez of the Center of Research and Advanced Studies of the National Polytechnic Institute (Cinvestav) found that blue agave improves magnesium and calcium absorption in the body, resulting in better bone health. The researchers found that eating fructans (your guess is as good as ours) in blue agave and having healthy levels of intestinal flora (flowers in your bowels? possible?) helps to create new bone.

With this information, the science world is now hopeful that they could create a treatment for osteoporosis. This disease effects over 200 million people, so that would be one BFD if it turns out to be true. And at the end of the day, tequila will be the hero. We always knew you were something special, Jose. Cheers.
