Offer your patients a proven, food-based treatment for hyperlipidemia.

You can offer an effective food-based alternative those patients who are unable or unwilling to take statin drugs. A study from Mayo Clinic and University of Manitoba confirms that patients may see LDL-C reductions in as little as 30 days.

  • Clinical trial validated
  • As easy as taking a pill
  • Addresses root cause of hyperlipidemia
  • Measurable results seen in 30 days

A clinically-proven statin alternative.

For patients who can’t or don’t want to rely solely on medications to lower their cholesterol, Step One Foods offers a food-based solution clinically proven to meaningfully reduce LDL-C in 30 days.

Our products are developed specifically for patients who are:

  • Ineligible for cholesterol-lowering medications
  • Averse to taking statins due to side effects or personal preference
  • At maximum statin dose with incomplete LDL-C control
  • Unable to maintain dietary or lifestyle changes

Every serving contains the precise amounts of whole food fiber, plant sterols, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids documented to help lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health, all from real whole-food ingredients.

Step One Foods have been subjected to a randomized, case controlled, cross-over clinical trial in a free-living population of statin intolerant individuals. On average, subjects experienced an 8.8% LDL-C reduction in 30 days, with 1/3rd of patients noting LDL-C reductions at or above 15%.

A range of cardiovascular benefits

Modifying diet is the most impactful health change a patient can make. Dietary change influences six of the seven modifiable risk factors for cardio-metabolic disease:

  • Lipid profile optimization
  • Improved hypertensive control
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Improved vascular function
  • Improved glycemic control
  • Weight reduction

A cost-effective solution

Actuarial analysis reveals that every $1 spent on Step One Foods would result in $2.32 in health care savings.
