Wow, now it looks like a diet of champagne every day is A-OK! Scientists are finding that drinking three glasses of champagne a day can actually help to prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimers.
It turns out there is a compound in pinot noir and pinot meunier that can increase spatial memory and keep away brain diseases. The key are the black grapes used to make champagne.
The results were dramatic, says Jeremy Spencer, one of the professors who was involved in the experiment involving rats at Reading University.
Jeremy also said the following about the experiment:
“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.”
An Alzheimers Society spokesperson states that the results are indeed interesting, but states that much more research needs to be done before he gets too excited about the initial findings.
