Despite the obvious and of course the unnecessary introduction – because Champagne is always the answer as pictured above – I did not realise these bubbles (the ones after my heart) had more benefits than divinely dancing on the tongue and daintily trickling down my throat. Not that I wish to make alcoholics of you but let’s see what the Champagne Campaign has to offer…
1. CALORIES COUNT
Champagne has less than red and white wine (OF HUGE IMPORTANCE, especially after new years)
When you put strawberries in it (research health benefits of any fruit you can drop in your champagne)
3. VIVE LA FRANCE
Despite the people being less desirable, France – parent to Champagne is renowned for art, fashion, literature, cinema, cuisine, architecture, philosophy, so it can be reasonably said that you’re tasting a little of exquisite France.
4. APPETITE SUPPRESSION
Which should really come right after point 1 – concerning the fitness mania most ladies experience at least once in their life. Oui, the bubbles fill you up quicker, creating fullness and forcing you to not rush a great thing. ‘I downed 6 glasses of champagne’ no one ever said.
Technical terms to google here are champagne + resveratrol + polyphenol. It’ll tell you why its good for your heart.
Nothing ever looked more elegant than a champagne flute held by well manicured fingers; nope never! Not a bottle, a tumbler (long or short), wine glass, mug, cup, jar, shot glass, tin can or any contraption for drinking liquid.
7. WHERE AM I?
Well, this one blew my mind and I’ve taken it to be a health guideline to drink champagne at least once a week. I’ll just copy + paste shall I?
“Studies have shown that spatial memory can be improved after the consumption of champagne. Spatial memory is the ability to recognize one’s surroundings, as well as perform complex tasks and calculations. It is of particular importance to older people. Very early signs of dementia can occur when you’re in your 40s, therefore it can be beneficial to have a few glasses of champagne weekly to ward it off.” Source; lifehacker.org
8. REMEMBER REMEMBER
This is debatable but research strongly suggests that champagne is good for your memory.
History will tell you French kings served the good stuff as part of the festivities at their Coronation, so drink like a King or Queen or Royalty whichever is PC.
Monks invented it and used it in the sacrament of Eucharist, so translation could be ‘Champagne is divine‘. Best note to end on me thinks.
