Red Wine May Protect Teeth from Cavities and Gum Disease
According to a Spanish research, led by Dr. Victoria Moreno-Arribas from the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid, drinking red wine may protect teeth by destroying bacteria causing cavities and gum disease.
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.
Researchers from the University of Louisville in Kentucky suggest that natural polyphenols found in pomegranate can fight symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Polyphenols are also present in berries such as strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries. The...
