Champagne is typically deemed as a party accessory or luxury. It hardly gets the opportunity to be reckoned in its own right as an essential drink for daily consumption. But the truth is that champagne is beneficial to your health.
It is undoubtedly good for you! Before it was dismissed as a party favorite, champagne was a form of medicine. It was valued across history for its ability to pacify minor ailments of the body and mind.
Below are some of the major health benefits of drinking champagne, but in moderation, of course. Read on to know more!
Boost Your Memory
According to a study at Reading University wherein scientists gave some rats champagne daily for six weeks then made them finish a maze, there was a 70 percent success in completing the maze. Unlike rats without the influence of champagne, the average success rate was 50 percent.
Dr. Jeremy Spencer, the researcher’s leader, said that the study demonstrates for the first time that drinking champagne in moderation can impact cognitive functioning like memory. His conclusion was that the compound found in Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir, two red grapes used to produce champagne, can boost spatial awareness and memory.
Also, the research concludes that three glasses of champagne a week could aid in delaying the rise or outset of degenerative brain disorders, for instance, dementia.
Has Fewer Calories
Except if you drink champagne by the gallon, opting for champagne over beer or wine manifests the diet option. As a matter of fact, the average champagne flute has over ninety calories, with drier champagne with at least sixty calories.
On the other hand, red and white wines have about 120 to 125 calories per 147 grams. Plus, one can of beer contains 154 calories. With these numbers, it’s apparent that champagne has fewer calories, indeed, take the 2008 Moet Chandon Dom Perignon – 1.5L, for instance, which has about 25 calories per 187.5 ml.
Have you ever thought about why F1 (Formula One) racers have such soft skin? It’s because of champagne. Splashing champagne to the face, as the winning racers do after the race, might be a costly detoxifier, yet it is a very effective one.
Take note that champagne cleanses the skin with antioxidants. Additionally, lightening tartaric acid aids in balancing the skin tone, according to Maria Peredo, a dermatologist. Moreover, for people with oily skin, the champagne’s antibacterial properties help in treating your breakouts.
Good For the Heart
There has been plenty of articles, studies, and research about the heart health benefits of red wine. However, champagne, which is mainly crafted from red grapes, is healthy as well. In fact, according to one study, champagne has high levels of polyphenols.
This compound is found predominantly in red grapes and can potentially prevent heart problems and lower blood pressure. Even so, the thing to keep in mind here is, as with any beverages, is to drink moderately and responsibly.
Keep in mind that antioxidants aid our bodies to get rid of waste and maintain a healthy immune system. Sure, fruits and vegetables have high levels of antioxidants, which include the grapes that create or crafts the champagne.
Take note that all bodily processes make or induce waste products. These waste products are called free radicals. And our body requires a lot of different compounds and nutrients to fight off these free radicals and get rid of them from the body.
The world we live in today is filled with lots of stress and pollution. That said, people make lots of free radicals than ever before. As such, it is an excellent idea to consume foods that are bursting with antioxidants.
And champagne has lots of antioxidants. Just be sure to drink in moderation.
Help Your Feel Full More Quickly
For those who have partied or attended a lot of weddings, know that it does not take too long for champagne to get to your head. Well, it’s undoubtedly not a great thing. However, champagne could potentially make people feel full quickly and drink slower.
Another thing, the effect of drinking champagne does not last. So, if you get tipsy easily, perhaps around forty-five minutes or so, you will be sober.
If you are looking for a legit or valid excuse to open a bottle of champagne, then the good news is that it’s indeed good for your health. Champagne has more than its bubbles. It can protect your heart, improve your skin, boost your memory, and more.
However, do not get too overly excited. These benefits can only be enjoyed when you drink in moderation. So, do not go drinking a bottle of champagne every night. Keep in mind that too much of anything is bad for you, worse can be the reason for your death. Drinking too much champagne can undo all the good work it offers.
