What would you say about yourself to a room full of strangers if you only had four minutes? Well that’s exactly how much time I had at Google’s Demo Day to pitch Step One Foods’ mission to some of the top startup investors in the U.S. It was exhilarating!
If you missed the live stream of the pitch, here’s a recap of the message we brought to San Francisco to showcase the possibility and the power of using food as medicine.
While heart disease is a preventable disease, we’re spending $300 Billion dollars a year treating it through medications and other therapies. That number, while staggering, continues to grow because we’re not treating heart disease properly. Doctors are prescribing drugs that mask the problem without addressing the underlying cause. And that’s where Step One Foods comes in.
The answer to the heart disease problem that millions of American’s face is simple… food. That’s right, food is the fix. With Step One Foods, a healthy heart is achievable by incorporating our products into your diet, just twice a day. Whether you like pancakes, chocolate bars or a granola that can be sprinkled over yogurt and other foods, there are plenty of options for you to choose from and they’re loaded with heart healthy goodness like antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, plant sterols and whole food fiber - in clinically impactful amounts.
Food formulated in this way can be therapeutic. And when it comes to eating for a healthy heart, our products are proven to work in just 30 days. Step One Foods can lower LDL (bad) cholesterol by 39 points (on average) that quickly. And we’re so certain you will see a measurable result, we guarantee it. Money back.
It was exciting to bring the Step One’s mission of using food as medicine to the national stage. With more awareness, I am confident that Step One Foods can become the life-changing solution that helps eliminate the growing problem of heart disease in our country.
