Real results. Real people.
I no longer felt like I had a death sentence. There was something I could do to help lower my cholesterol.
My total cholesterol dropped 51 points, my LDL dropped 43 points, and I saw an improvement in my triglycerides.
I find Step One foods simplify and make consistency easy… your [products] make it easy to travel or be away for the day and never miss the nutrients!
My LDL improved by more than 80 points. I'm a physician and I did not believe it was possible, so I tested my cholesterol at two other facilities. The tests confirmed the results were real and I was thrilled.
Why Step One Foods?
The way we treat heart disease today makes no sense. High cholesterol? Here’s one pill. High blood pressure? Here are two pills. This solution never addresses WHY a patient’s cholesterol or blood pressure is high in the first place. It’s like putting pretty, and sometimes very expensive, wallpaper over crumbling walls. It may look nice, but the underlying structure is no more sound.
Our founder, Elizabeth Klodas, MD, decided to take a new approach to heart health and address the root cause of the problem - nutrition - and leverage something patients already do every day - eat! She developed a simple, effective and delicious way to support healthy cholesterol levels with food. It’s step one to better health!
Clinically Proven. Guaranteed.
We know dietary changes can be hard, so we developed products that are convenient to use (like single-serve oatmeal), taste great (hello Dark Chocolate Crunch Bars!) and are backed by pharmaceutical-level science. That last part, it means they really work. We’ve done the clinical trial to prove it. And we're so confident you’ll love our products they’re 100% satisfaction-guaranteed.
