Health Benefit of Drinking Champagne

 

It may improve your heart health

Like red and white wine, champagne can be good for your heart. Made from both red and white grapes, it contains the same antioxidants which prevent damage to your blood vessels, reduce bad cholesterol and prevent blood clots. In turn, this lowers the risk of heart illnesses and strokes. But the key word here, as with any alcoholic drink, is moderation.

It will keep you sharp

Research from the University of Columbia has shown that champagne contains proteins that are beneficial for your short term memory. A study be Reading University in 2013 said that three glasses of bubbles per week can help improve it.

It can increase your sex drive

It’s well known that alcohol makes people lose their inhibitions. Most alcoholic drinks will give you a momentary buzz but then leave you with little energy and the lack of blood flow you need for arousal. Champagne, on the other hand, allows you to feel its effects much quicker without sapping your energy.

It has little calories

Champagne contains fewer calories (80) than both red and white wine (120). The servings are generally smaller too, so it’s the healthier choice all round – as long as you don’t drink the whole bottle.

It can lower your risk of diabetes

A 2009 study in Canada showed that all wines, including sparklers like champagne, can lower your risk of contracting diabetes by 13 per cent.

It boosts your mood

We all know the buoyant feeling that you get from a sip of champagne – this is due to the magnesium, potassium and zinc it contains.
