Red wine is also a source of catechins, which could help improve “good” HDL cholesterol.“You are not even choosing between the lesser of two evils, red wine and dark chocolate have positive components that are actually good foryour heart,” Newswise quoted Ofria, a registered dietitian at the Loyola University Health System’s Melrose Park campus as saying.Ofria, who is also a nutrition educator, has also recommended a list of heart-healthy ingredients for February, which is national heart month, and for good heart health all year.
