The researchers completed an experiment where they tested concentrations in the range normally found in wine – 50 and 10 µg/ml. While working with cells that modeled gum tissue, the researchers have found the two wine polyphenols, caffeic and p-coumaric acids, were generally better than the total wine extracts at cutting back on the bacteria’s ability to stick to the cells.

Results of the study also suggest that antioxidants in red wine are more efficient than grape-seed and red-wine extracts at preventing plaque-causing bacteria from sticking to lab-grown cells in modeled gum tissue.
