Study: Red Wine Prevents Tooth Decay, Gum Disease

It may stain your teeth, but red wine contains chemicals that could also help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, according to a study.  A team of researchers in Spain discovered that red wine contains polyphenol, a micronutrient that reduces the ability of bad bacteria known to cause dental plaque, cavities and gum disease to adhere to teeth and gums. The study further links drinking red wine in moderation to multiple health benefits, including helping the heart, boosting good bacteria in the gut, lowering the risk of diabetes and increasing a person’s longevity.
