According to a new study appearing in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, red wine as well as grape seed extract could potentially help fight off cavities.
Cavities are a widespread problem that affects about 60-90 percent of the global population. As it affects the large majority of the global population, researchers and medical practitioners around the world are looking for any type of technique to help stop the growing problem. As the linkage between oral health and systematic health grows closer and closer, researchers believe we are moments away from a poor health outbreak in almost every country of the world. News that should shock a majority.
As health issues rise, researchers turned to an unlikely source for help. A study was conducted in which scientists dipped certain biofilms responsible for dental diseases in a couple of different liquids. Red wine with and without alcohol both being included in the study, the data suggested that red wines with or without the alcohol and liquids containing grape seed extract were the most effective in getting rid of that bacteria.
Red wine among other alcohols have raised concerns in the past pertaining to and individual’s health, however red wine has also been linked to raising a healthy heart. Oddly enough, this links to oral health, as those who have a healthier mouth have less risk of any type of cardiovascular disease.
