Red wine may actually protect the integrity of your teeth.
Compounds in red wine is effective at eradicating bacteria that like to linger on teeth and gums.
When the polyphenols present in red wine were combined with an oral probiotic that encourages the growth of “good” bacteria, Streptococcus dentisani, polyphenols performed even better at halting the bad oral bacteria. It’s unclear why, but it may be that the polyphenols produce molecules that keep the bacteria from hanging around.
It could lead to polyphenol-infused products like chewing gum, mouthwash and toothpaste for extra protection against bacteria.
Red wine isn’t the only thing containing polyphenols. Apples, coffee, green tea, blueberries, cherries and dark chocolate are all rich in polyphenols and don’t require ID to consume!
