Drink Champagne and Prosecco for Better Heart Health?

Isn’t that a headline to lift the spirits? The University of Reading has been looking into sparkling wine and discovered that a glass of bubbly could potentially lower blood pressure, increase blood circulation and reduce your risk of a stroke. How exciting. We’ve always thought that clean-drinking Thomson & Scott Skinny Champagne and Prosecco was the way to party, so we couldn’t be happier to learn of its potential extra benefits.

 According to researcher Dr Jeremy Spencer from the Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, it’s all about the polyphenols, plant-based antioxidants that help support the circulatory system. As we avidly read in The Daily Health: “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”.

The Daily Health goes on to discuss Thomson & Scott Skinny Prosecco and the fact that it contains "around half the sugar of normal Prosecco." It goes on to reassure its readers that, “By the looks of it you can enjoy your favourite tipple this festive season with the sound assurance that you’re doing it for your good health”. Something we’ll happily drink to, responsibly and in moderation, of course.
