While you probably didn't need another excuse to drink champagne outside of holidays like New Year's, research suggests that popping open bubbly every day could actually benefit your brain.
A 2013 study from the University of Reading -- that suddenly started trending on Facebook Monday -- claims that drinking a few glasses of champagne in a week could help prevent memory loss and even degenerative brain disorders like dementia. So, it may be old news, but it's gold news.
"These exciting results illustrate for the first time that the moderate consumption of champagne has the potential to influence cognitive functioning, such as memory," said Jeremy Spencer, a professor at the university's Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, said in a press release at the time. "We encourage a responsible approach to alcohol consumption, and our results suggest that a very low intake of one to two glasses a week can be effective."
