Red Wine To Prevent Cavities?


Your favorite relaxation beverage could be the best thing since sliced bread where oral health is concerned. Researchers are studying the effects of polyphenols in red wine on oral bacteria and cavity formation. The polyphenols found in red wine have proven effective at inhibiting oral bacterial growth; red wine with grape seed extract added was the most effective antimicrobial. 
Research is still being done, but you can sip your red wine knowing that you may just be doing your mouth a favor. It is almost like getting your cake and eating it too!
