Drinking champagne may help prevent dementia

Three cheers for champagne.

Researchers have discovered two ingredients in champagne may keep brain diseases at bay reports WGAL.
Scientists at Reading University in Berkshire, UK, are suggesting that just three glasses per week may help prevent the onset of dementia and Alzheimer's.
It is thought that pinot noir and pinot meunier, both used in the creation of champagne, have compounds present that can boost spatial memory and ward off brain disease.
So far, the research has only been done on rats, and scientists now hope to move to adults.
"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.
