All sugar must be eaten with great caution, and high agave is not much different. For more, read The Truth about Agave.

Organic Raw Blue Agave has a higher fructose content than any other common sweetener, more even than high fructose corn syrup. Because of its reputation as a natural sweetener, it is now widely used in products claiming to be good for health – from teas to nutrition bars and energy drinks. Fructose is a major culprit in the rising incidence of type 2 diabetes and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. It may also increase risks of heart disease and cancer. - Source: Dr Weil: What's Wrong with Agave Nectar">Agave Nectar,
