I agree. Claiming benefit for some product, has certainly to take into consideration the associated molecules it is contained with! If agave tequilana is associated with high alcohol percentage, of course, the benefit would be outweighed by the risks. So it is with many drinks and processed food. Of course, that is not to say that altetnatives of drugs, for a particular disorder, are guaranteed safe!!
Finally, it will be interesting to make controlled studies where intake of tequila is prevalent, and make some judgment!!
My father in law swears by it and is going back to Mexico to buy more of the juice.
doctors would rather prescribe drugs that have more BAD side effects
From the more in depth explanation of the “research”, it appears that the results being touted are closer to being anecdotal than real research with a medical break through.
Please, just raise a glass and smile!
