According to new research, Champagne does “go straight to your head,” in a manner of speaking. Scientists at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom have found that the phenolic compounds found in Champagne can improve spatial memory, which is responsible for recording information about one’s environment and storing the information for future navigation. Consumers can reap these benefits by drinking one to three glasses of Champagne a week to help counteract memory loss associated with aging and delay the onset of degenerative brain disorders, such as dementia, the research suggests.
