They focused on how these compounds protect against bacteria that cause dental plaque, cavities and periodontal disease - a serious infection that damages the gums and can destroy the jawbone. Researchers including M Victoria Moreno-Arribas from Institute of Food Science Research (CIAL) in Spain wanted to know whether wine and grape polyphenols would also protect teeth and gums, and how this could work on a molecular level.

Where you find Polyphenols from? . Other drinks rich in polyphenols include coffee, green tea, cider, blueberries, raspberries, kiwis, cherries and beans.

Interestingly, researchers discovered that wine polyphenols and extracts all prevented the bacteria from sticking to the cells.
