How it works

Step One Food’s Clinically Validated Results

Step One Foods provides measurable results in just 30 days!

In a groundbreaking clinical trial presented at the American Heart Association Scientific Session, participants saw a 9% reduction in LDL (bad) cholesterol, on average.

This corresponds to an 18% heart disease risk reduction across the population. In addition, some subjects achieved 20, 30 even close to 40% LDL drops in just 4 weeks. This is equivalent to what would be expected with medications.

Step One’s “Healthy Hearts for Heroes” workplace wellness program demonstrated 84% participation rates, with 90% of participants experiencing a measurable health improvements in just 30 days!

As a physician and athlete, I was shocked when my annual physical revealed that my LDL was 175. Without skipping a beat I put myself on two servings of Step One Foods a day: Oatmeal in the morning, Smoothie Mix in the evening. My LDL improved by more than 80 points. I definitely preferred trying this before going straight to pills.
