Enjoy your Red Wine! Red Wine Cavity Fighter?

Red Wine Show Promise as a Cavity Fighter

Red Wine Fighter

Add cavity fighting to red wine’s benefits?

Women over 45 (okay all WOMEN!) — Want ANOTHER reason to drink a nice glass of red wine with dinner or before bed?  According to latest reasearch, red wine, as well as grape seed extract, could potentially help prevent cavities. Will we be seeing a slew of natural products that ward off dental diseases with fewer side effects?

Research on red wine cavity fighter

American Chemical Society has reported in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, that research has suggested that polyphenols, grape seed extract and wine can slow bacterial growth.  M. Victoria Moreno-Arribas, Pharm.D and colleagues decided to test this research under realistic conditions for the first time.

They grew cultures of bacteria responsible for dental diseases as a biofilm. They dipped the biofilms for a couple of minutes in different liquids, including red wine, red wine without the alcohol, red wine spiked with grape seed extract, and water and 12 percent ethanol for comparison. Red wine with or without alcohol and wine with grape seed extract were the most effective at getting rid of the bacteria.

Changing your dental routine?

Well maybe I won’t drop toothpaste, flossing, and mouthwash just yet. However, why not add some red wine (with or without alcohol), or grapeseed extract to your routine.  It appears drinking the red wine isn’t necessary all you really need to do is dip your teeth in the red wine. 

Ummm….Who the heck is going to do just that?  I, for one, usually have a glass of red wine before bed each night for “medicinal purposes”.  Now with these new findings, I can also assert that my red wine is for “dental purposes” as well.  Who knows what benefits they’ll discover next?  ELATION!!!
