And the healthy benefits of champagne don’t stop there. A study in Canada showed champers can reduce your risk of diabetes by 13% and it’s also been proven to - just like red wine - reduce the risk of stroke and heart illnesses.
It’s also been proven that champagne improves your mood and sex drive - while research in Pittsburgh showed that drinking ‘moderate’ amounts of champagne almost halves your chance of developing dementia.
It’s settled then! Champagne - in moderation, of course - is good for you. Bottoms up people!
