In what might be the best piece of medical news ever revealed, a new study from Reading University found drinking three glasses of Champagne every day can help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s. Yes, that’s the sound of people everywhere popping bottles.
Apparently, a compound called phenolics—which is found in high levels in red grapes Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier—is thought to slow memory loss, keep brain diseases at bay and increase spatial memory. Both of these are used, along with white Chardonnay grapes, to make Champagne.
Earlier research from the university also found that two glasses of Champagne daily could improve heart health, circulation, and “reduce the risks of suffering from cardiovascular disease and stroke.”
Bless you, researchers at University of Reading.
