I heard in the news today that a recent study came out saying that champagne can reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and dementia. Pretty interesting! Is this true? What did the study report?

Hi Erin,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

A couple of years ago, at the Reading University, research was done on rats that showed improved performance on simple memory test. The researchers believe that drinking three (3) glasses of champagne a week might improve cognitive functioning.

There is a wide variety of wine related health benefits supported by research already, so to have an additional one that helps with Alzheimer's and dementia is very exciting. More testing is needed, specifically on humans, before these findings are confirmed.

I, like many wine lovers ,will be looking forward to hearing more on how researchers are further developing the results in the future.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
