Recent reports have suggested that drinking a glass of wine may be beneficial to your health.
Researchers have found that wine has a concentration of a type of antioxidant called polyphenols that can be good for heart, brain, and muscle health.
Some studies have also found that it might even be able to help fight cancer.
Now, a new study published in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry proposes that drinking wine may also be good for oral health as well.
The study authors found two polyphenols found in wine were good at preventing bacteria that cause dental plaque, cavities and periodontal disease from sticking to teeth and gum cells.
The two wine polyphenols were identified as caffeic and p-coumaric acids.
