They said it was excellent for rheumatism and the prevention of aging and they recommended it for women about to give birth, to convalescents, anemic people, and the weak. As is often the case, the Ancients intuitively discovered something that research has just confirmed.
The therapeutic virtues of champagne are now backed up, in effect, by the most recent scientific discoveries, notably from the fields of molecular biology and biochemistry. The considerable number of salutary substances in champagne now isolated by our spectrometers, chromatographs, and magnetic resonance apparatuses is simply staggering: numerous varieties of juices, glucoses, multiple mineral salts, oligo-elements, certain families of aromatic substances, organic acids, tannic substances, enzymes, fatty acids, combined amino acids, ethylic acids, and also secondary and tertiary substances and vitamins…
