Drinking red wine gets better and better...by Ben Ferm Manager
Many are the studies showing different health benefits of red wine. Alex Therrien over at BBC use a nice headline today: "Red wine compound 'could help tooth decay and gum disease fight'". How lovely and wonderful isn't this nectar of gods, it cures everything from diabetes to bad teeth depending on what researchers you believe.
Well, this time, according to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists looked into whether wine polyphenols might also be good for oral health. And sure enough it is. And jumping over all the cellular and microbiota talk, you can head over to the original article if you want to glance at those, they the findings said could ultimately lead to new dental treatments.
I admit I rather have a glass of red wine than a visit at the dentist.
These polyphenols, however, are also found in coffee, green- black- and red tea, lemon juice, blueberries... Well, in a lot of different stuff.
Don't get me wrong now, I absolutely love red wine. And I am absolutely convinced it is good for you in many ways. You just have to be careful of how many bottles you drink of the stuff.
And somehow I have a strange feeling that many of those things now listed as good, like coffee and tea, red wine and lemon, always before have been pointed at as "bad for your teeth"...
