Drink wine and help protect your teeth

Recent studies show that red wine is not harmful to your teeth. Although it causes staining, researchers have identified more benefits of drinking red wine.


– Wine comprises polyphenol nutrients with antioxidative and antibacterial benefits to our bodies.
– The series of micronutrients also help to prevent heart disease, keep the brain young and improve hormonal balance.
– The two main polyphenols caffeic acid and p-coumaric acid repel harmful oral bacteria and protect our teeth from cavities and gum disease.
