    Popping Bottles and Floating Bubbles

    Champagne is sparkling wine that comes from the Champagne region of north-eastern France. Technically, if the bottle is not from that region, it’s sparkling wine — not champagne. A nice glass of perfectly chilled bubbly is held dear, whether for celebrating a special occasion or for no reason at all. Who knew that along with being a top toasting choice and the perfect mate for fresh-squeezed orange juice, champagne offers health benefits, too? Cheers to that! Image Courtesy: Getty

    Lowers Blood Pressure

    Research from the British Journal of Nutrition found that champagne has health benefits similar to those often attributed to red wine. The research showed that champagne drinkers experienced a slower removal of nitric oxide from their blood.  It means that sipping a few glasses of champagne may lower blood pressure and potentially reduce your risk of stroke and heart disease.

    Prevents Heart Diseases

    Champagne is made from red, as well as white, grapes, and therefore contains most resveratrol. This is an important antioxidant that prevents damage to your blood vessels, reduces bad cholesterol, and prevents blood clots. Image Courtesy: Getty

    Contains Antioxidants

    Champagne contains antioxidants – powerful nutrients that work to contain the damage caused by free-roaming radicals in our bodies. Free-roaming radicals are often linked to disease, fatigue and weight gain. Antioxidants are important because they 'quench' these radicals and help protect our cells from damage and death.
