How to lower blood pressure naturally
If you have high blood pressure, you’re not alone. In fact, using the definition of high blood pressure – 130/80 mmHg or greater, on average, as measured at rest on two separate occasions – one out of every two American adults is affected.
High blood pressure can predispose you to stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, and heart failure.
Many people with hypertension end up on medications, sometimes even multiple drugs. But blood pressure can also be significantly, and positively, affected by lifestyle changes, especially through diet.
A balanced diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fiber – but also limited in sodium, saturated fat, and cholesterol – can help lower and maintain your blood pressure in the desired range. Although making changes to your entire nutritional intake can be daunting, making even small changes to your diet can help manage and lower your blood pressure readings.
If you’re not sure just where to start, try incorporating two snacks that are high in fiber, nuts, and fruit into your diet – like Step One Foods products – on a regular basis. This small dietary nudge can help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, and decrease blood pressure!
Here’s how much of an impact Step One can have on blood pressure, in the words of real customers.

Before I found out about these products, I had only dreamed of a goal weight. Oatmeal was something I couldn’t even look at let alone consume. My night table was well stocked with chocolate and chips. Doctors never addressed weight, they just wrote prescriptions. I came across an invitation to attend one of Dr. Klodas’ webinars and decided to attend. Everything she said made sense! Her encouragement without shaming along with the all the information she presented, convinced me that “I could feel better if I ate better”. Oatmeal has replaced the bacon and waffles, my night table is stocked with my favorite “ The dark chocolate crunch bar" and I have surpassed my goal weight. The threat of possible cholesterol medication was taken off the table and I feel 20 years younger. The oatmeal has helped with digestive issues as well as keeping me from getting hungry before lunch. So glad I gave these products a try, oh! Also let me mention that my out-of-control blood pressure is now well controlled. Total game changer for me!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Love the oatmeal - Elsie S.
I have tried all the breakfast foods and the oatmeal is my favorite. I have the oatmeal every morning for breakfast. I have a bar several afternoons a week. My cholesterol was down 30 points and I'm still working on it to get to normal. I have been on blood pressure medication for 10 years & now my blood pressure is down to normal! Unreal! These foods really work. I hope to get on 2 meals a day in January! These foods have really helped me. If you’re like me and want to get cholesterol and blood pressure under control without medications then give these foods a try! They really work!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Working fantastic - Larry M.
Cholesterol is down 20 points!!! Blood pressure is better than when I was in High School. That is just the first 59 days. Step One is helping me take back control of my health.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - It helps to follow a plan - Kathy R.
I ordered the starter pack on the recommendation of a friend. My goal is to lower my cholesterol and stay off medication. Although Step One Foods is not a meal plan in itself, it has helped me stay focused on my goal because it has become part of my overall plan to lose weight (accomplished 8 pounds so far), get off blood pressure medication (accomplished), and eventually get off the cholesterol medication. I will have my cholesterol checked in September, and I can't wait to see those numbers. I'm hopeful. THANK YOU Step One Foods. The products are delicious and are certainly helping me stay focused.
