The health benefits of drinking wine are diverse. A glass of red wine every day can provide antioxidants, boost your immune system, and reduce your risk of stroke. Add one more to that list: Better oral health. A new study shows that sipping red wine may actually protect your teeth and gums from bacteria and cavities.  How does it work? Well, wine contains “polyphenols” – a fancy term for beneficial plant-based chemicals. When you take a sip of red wine, these polyphenols wash over your teeth and help get rid of plaque-causing bacteria!  If you’re interested in the full study, click on the link below.
