Wine polyphenols may be good for oral health

Red wine compound 'could help tooth decay and gum disease fight'

Previous studies have suggested that the health benefits of polyphenols are linked to them being antioxidants that protect the body from harmful and cell-damaging free radicals. Do you think red wine could help when it comes to preventing tooth decay?

If you're a lover of red wine, the latest research surrounding the tasty alcoholic beverage may be music to your ears.

The study, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, checked out the effect of two red wine polyphenols, as well as commercially available grape seed and red wine extracts, on bacteria that stick to teeth and gums and cause dental plaque, cavities and periodontal disease.
