According to the University of Reading in Great Britain having three glass of Champagne a week could help prevent dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The research suggests that the grapes in Champagne are good for improving spatial memory (which is important for navigation and performing complicated tasks) and preventing the onset of brain diseases.

The researchers from the University made the experience on rats. They gave them a moderate amount of champagne every day for six weeks.  Every day, they made the rats find a treat in a maze, repeating the test every five minutes to examine whether the animal had remember where to go.

Without champagne the rat has 50% of success rate, but after drinking champagne the rate increased to 70%.

The next step is to test the effects on humans. They plan to use champagne containing pinot noir and pinot meunier black grape varieties that are thought to be “super-grapes” which positively effect the brain.

According to Professor Jeremy Spencer who led the research the results of the survey were “dramatic”, incredible.

'After rats consumed champagne regularly, there was a 200 per cent increase of proteins important for determining effective memory,' he said. “This occurred in rats after just 6 weeks. We think it would take about three years in humans.”

Then he added: '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.'
