Apparently there is a massive health benefit to drinking Bubbly!

two glasses of champage
As the festive season begins, we can hear those bottles of bubbly popping all over town!
 
And the good news for those who'll be partaking in a glass of fizz or two (!) is that we've learned that Champers is filled with positive health benefits, so embrace those bubbles!
 
Research from The University Reading found that Champagne contains polyphenols which upon consumption are absorbed into the circulation where they act on the vascular system. Moreover, they appear to slow down the natural removal of nitric oxide from our blood, meaning that it will have a longer time to act on blood vessels and so works to positively improve the flow of blood around our bodies!
 
Who knew!?
 
"Our research has shown that drinking around two glasses of Champagne can have beneficial effects on the way blood vessels function, in a similar way to that observed with red wine. We always encourage a responsible approach to alcohol consumption, but the fact that drinking Champagne has the potential to reduce the risks of suffering from cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and stroke, is very exciting news."
