Why does Champagne cause headaches and how to prevent them
Sulfites are not the enemy of Sparkling Wine consumers. They essentially protect your precious alcohol from the outside influences of bacteria and oxygen. Sulfites can cause allergy and asthma symptoms but they do not cause headaches. The science has proven that a higher than normal sugar content of Champagne and other Sparkling Wines is one of the reasons which can cause headaches. We absolutely agree about this fact especially after 80 Sparkling Wines including major Champagne names, Proseccos and Cavas have been tested by the Miami University Diabetes Research Institute regarding the sugar content. The winner of the sugar test which happened in 2016 was our Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco. Less than 2 Grams of residual fruit sugar ( 1.8 Grams ) in the 750ml bottle is outstanding and makes sure that the end consumer does not get any headaches. Here are the reasons and advantages of the Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco which keep headaches away from you:

Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco guarantees to be very low on Sulfites. Sulfites are a natural by-product of the fermentation process that work as a preservative against certain bacteria. Short fermentation times don’t produce enough sulfites to preserve a wine for more than a few weeks. So added sulfites are necessary. Wine ranges from about 5ppm ( 5 parts per million ) to about 250ppm/L. The Legal Limit in the US is 350ppm g/L. People believe that Wines which are labeled “Organic” don’t contain any Sulfites which is simply not true. Sulfites are mainly added to Sparkling Wines in order to extend the shelf life of it. It is different with Mr and Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Wines. They are very low on Sulfites, on Sugar and are Vegan too. On top of it all SYLTBAR wines are 100% naturally produced.
What causes champagne headaches?
Another reason why Champagne can cause headaches is the high alcohol content of it. Once consumers drink Champagne the human hormone which balances the internal hydration is suppressed. This leads to having to go to the restroom numerous times which can result in dehydration followed by headaches the same or the next day depending on the Champagne consumption amount.
The bubbles of Champagne can definitely be another reason causing headaches. The high Champagne alcohol level simply hits the consumer harder due to the very high levels of carbonation. The bubbles contain carbon dioxide which creates stomach pressure and it also ends up competing with oxygen in the bloodstream of the consumer. Champagne also gets the consumer intoxicated quicker because of its bubbles and some oxygen is flowing to the brain. Headaches will follow naturally because of it.
Is there a way to avoid headaches and if so how ? One very simple successful one is to entirely skip Champagne and other alcoholic beverages. We recommend to consume only one glass of Champagne per hour as a rule of thumb. And do not choose mass Champagne but premium brands such as Ruinart, Krug or Dom Perignon if your first choice are French bubbles.
