One of the most noble elixir and the star of every party, birthday party or celebration worldwide, the champagne has unepected benefits too. Did you know that it’s healthy too?
“Champagne is the only wine that makes a woman beautiful even after she drinks it!” (Madame De Pompadour).
Coco Chanel said that the only occasions in which she drank champagne were when she was happy and when she wasn’t. These famous women knew for sure what they were saying, that’s why, we decided to figure out the true benefits of drinking champagne.
Here they are!
#1. It makes your skin beautiful
The carbon dioxide from the bubbles of champagne have a rejuvenating effect, and the polyphenols in it beat the redness. In addition, the antiantioxidants detoxify your skin while the tartaric acid gives you a certain glow. Besides, the champagne has antibacterial effects.
#2. It improves your memory
Scientists from the Reading University from UK discovered that if you drink it regurarly (in normal terms of course) it can refresh your memory up to 20%. What’s the main reason? The compounds from the 2 layers of red grapes in it – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – can improve your orientation and memory.
In order to have this effect, you must drink 3 glasses of champagne per week for 3 years in a row. This result is based on an experiment, therefore we advise you to choose what’s best for you.
#3. It helps with your weight
Even if you love red wine, which is good for your health (in normal terms of course), you should know that the champagne is can be a good substituent. A glass of champagne has 80-100 calories, meaning 12g of sugar per liter. This amount is definitely lower than a glass of beer or wine. If you’re on a diet and you just have to celebrate with a glass of liquor, drink champagne.
#4. It minimizes the risk for diabetes
Studies have shown that the champagne can reduce up to 13% risk for diabetes. You can even add orange to make a cocktail. The citrus fruits have sugar, so, they become true natural enemies of the inflamations and help the body to fight the insuline.
#5. It’s excellent in salads
You can add champagne instead of vinegar and it’s still delicious. Because it’s acid, it levels up the taste of oil and it gives the salad a special flavor.
Here’s the recipe of the dressing: In a small bowl, add 2 stea spoons of champagne, 2 tea spoons of virgin olive oil, 1 tea spoon of white vinegar, 1 tea spoon of honey, 1/4 tea spoon of pepper and mix them up good. Add some leaves of baby spinach and some slices of pear and fried nuts.
Let the culinary feast begin!
