Many people are interested in grape seed extract because it contains antioxidants, the substances that protect cells from damage. It also helps prevent many diseases.
They are rich sources of vitamin A and vitamin C in addition to essential minerals like potassium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium.
Regular consumption of grapes has been known to help in treating constipation, indigestion. And now a new study indicates they may prevent tooth decay too!
A group of scientists found that a natural compound called caftaric acid in grapes is really beneficial for our dental health. It can strengthen our teeth and also can boost the strength of fillings.
The substance could reduce tooth extractions by increasing the longevity of composite-resin fillings – or tooth- colorful fillings – which typically last only five to seven years.
Interlocking the resin and collagen-rich dentin provides better adhesion and does not rely on moisture. The extract has been found to toughen dentin, the tissue that makes up the bulk of the tooth. It lies beneath the hard external enamel.
