Researchers have discovered two ingredients in champagne that may keep brain diseases at bay.
Scientists at Reading University in Berkshire, UK, are suggesting that just one to three glasses per week may help prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer's.
It is thought that pinot noir and pinot meunier, two types of red grapes used in the creation of champagne, have compounds that can boost spatial memory, which is responsible for recording and storing information about your surroundings. Champagne has more of these compounds than white wine.
So far, the research has only been done on rats. Scientists are now looking to see if champagne affects humans in the same way.
"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," said Jeremy Spencer, a biochemistry professor at Reading University.
