Drinking Champagne Can Keep You Young Forever

Rejoice party people!
Drinking Champagne Can Keep You Young Forever

Good news, everybody! Science has spoken yet again - champagne is actually good for you. A study shows that moderate consumption of bubbles can slow down and even reverse cognitive deterioration associated with ageing, à la Benjamin Button. Time to reverse that biological clock and pop a bottle.

The results of this study showed that drinking three glasses of champagne every day (every day!!!!) can help prevent the development of dementia and Alzheimer's: two diseases generally associated with age related disorder of mental processes. Researchers concluded that compound found in two types of grapes used to make champagne, pinot noir and pinot meunier, affects brain in a positive way and stimulates learning and memory.

Professor Jeremy Spenser from the department of Food and Nutritional Sciences of Reading University says, "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."

However, one thing to keep in mind - the testing was conducted on rats, not people. They were given a small dose of champagne along with their daily food intake and were then put in a maze where they had to find more food. Without champagne, rats' success rate was at 50%, while on champagne it rose to an impressive 70%.

Obviously, a lot more research is needed before making any type of serious lifestyle changes. In the meantime, we're patiently waiting with a glass of champagne in hand and a heart full of hope.
