If you’re a fan of the all time most favorable celebration drink, then you may want to find more reasons to celebrate. Recent studies suggest that drinking a glass of bubbly champagne three times a week can actually improve memory and remove the risks of getting dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
Scientists at Reading University found that a compound unique to pinot noir and pinot meunier grapes, which are used in the production of champagne, help memory and shield the brain from diseases.
The initial studies were done on rats and since it showed dramatic results, it clears the way for researchers to test their hypothesis in clinical studies.
Jeremy Spencer, one of the researchers who carried out the experiment, reveals: “These exciting results illustrate for the first time that the moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning, such as memory.”
Not only is champagne a dementia and Alzheimer’s fighter, but the drink contains other health benefits too that are way under-rated.
It’s just as healthy for your heart as a glass of red wine, it will boost your mood and it contains fewer calories than red and white wine – a glass contains about 80 cals.
So, did you have a bad day at work today but you got through it? Celebrate with champagne. Did you get a girls number at the club last week? Pop bottles. Did you get house-chores completed? Party it up!
Of course, always remember to drink responsibly. If you’re celebrating a little too much, you’ll definitely need Plan C!
