It’s news that has been on the radar for a while, and now there seems to be more proof: drinking champagne every day could help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s
In article published here, it says:
In news that both offers hope and baffles, scientists have found that drinking three glasses of champagne every day can help to prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s. A compound found in pinot noir and pinot meunier, the black grapes used to make a bottle of the fizzy stuff, can ward off brain diseases and increase spatial memory.
Professor Jeremy Spencer—one of the academics who carried out the experiment involving rats at Reading University—told the Mail on Sunday “the results were dramatic”.
He continued: “This research is exciting because it illustrates for the first time that moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning such as memory.”
You might wonder what the Alzheimer’s Society has to say about the findings.
They described the results as “interesting,” but added: “A lot more research is needed.”
Those behind the study now hope to move on to trials involving pensioners.
We say: this is good news! And anything in moderation is okay, right?
