We'll admit that we like the odd shot or two on a night out, and when it comes down to it, tequila is probably everyone's first choice.

Some love it, some hate it, but either way it goes down with a sting and makes you dance all night long. Win-win, right?

So, when we heard that the drink has actual health benefits, it's safe to say we jumped for joy.

According to Science Daily, a new study which has been carried out in Mexico has found that a substance found in tequila – the blue variety of agave tequilana – is good for you!

The drink "has substances capable of improving the absorption of calcium and magnesium, essential minerals to maintain bone health."

Dr. Mercedes Lopez from the Centre for Research and Advanced Studies said, "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."

It is believed that this new find means doctors will be able to use an alternative treatment for osteoporosis.
