We’ve all heard that when drunk in moderation, red wine can benefit health. And, in fact, it’s recently been reported that red wine consumption may slow aging and prolong life. But did you know that drinking red or white wine may benefit your dental health?
Although the research was published nearly a year ago in the American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, it was complete news to me. Apparently, the antimicrobial effects of wine can keep in check certain Strep bacteria that are involved in tooth decay. So raise a glass to your teeth and gums!
