You might be surprised to learn that a glass of red wine may be beneficial to your teeth and gums. A Spanish study has found that substances called polyphenols can exert a positive influence upon tooth decay and that when taken in moderation, red wine could very well represent a means to avoid dental problems.
A handful of other benefits associated with red wine include:
– The prevention of heart disease.
– Increased blood circulation.
– Lower blood pressure.
“Many of the health benefits of red wine come from its content of polyphenols, which are a series of micronutrients with antioxidant properties.”
