Bubbly Buzzing On Social Media; Can Help Memory
Here’s something to celebrate: Champagne is good for the brain.
That’s what a study in England said, and it’s got social media, well buzzed.
The study – which was actually conducted in 2013 – says the bubbly may help prevent forms of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease and help with people’s memory.
It was conducted by the University of Reading and said that Champagne has relatively high levels of phenolics, which primarily derive from two red grapes, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, and are used to make Champagne.

“Our research shows that Champagne, which lacks flavonoids, is also capable of influencing brain function through the actions of smaller phenolic compounds, previously thought to lack biological activity,” study author Jeremy Spencer, a food and nutritional sciences professor at the University of Reading, said in the study’s original press release. “We encourage a responsible approach to alcohol consumption, and our results suggest that a very low intake of one to two glasses a week can be effective.” Okay, a glass or two a week is good for you, just like red wine. That would be 4-5 mimosas. And PubClub.com loves mimosa weekend brunches.
