How It Works

Grounded in pharmaceutical-level science and proven through our clinical trial, every serving of Step One Foods delivers the precise amounts of key nutrients demonstrated to help lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health.

Eating Better Can Be Easy

We get how challenging it can be to change your diet. That’s why the Step One Foods program is made to fit easily into your everyday life. We’ve developed minimal- to no-prep, real-food products that deliver the four building blocks of heart health and taste great too. All you have to do is eat two servings a day by replacing something you’re eating now. It’s really that easy! And trust us, this one small step can add up to big health improvements over time.

You Have the Power to Heal

Medications may fix your cholesterol numbers, but they do nothing to solve the underlying health issues that cause high cholesterol. You, however, have the power to start healing by simply changing the way you eat. And remember, we’ve made that as easy as taking a pill (but so much tastier)! A low-sodium, low-cholesterol diet rich in whole food fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and plant sterols - all the good stuff in our Step One Foods products - can help you improve many areas of heart health.

Real results. Real people.

Yes, they were skeptical too.

Discover the four building blocks of heart health.


Found in foods like oat bran, flaxseed and dried fruit, fiber binds to cholesterol particles in the intestine and moves them out of the body.

Plant Sterols

Plant sterols - a group of substances made in plants such as nuts and seeds - block cholesterol absorption in the digestive tract.


Found in foods like dark chocolate, berries and pecans, antioxidants help prevent the build-up of plaque in the blood vessels.


Omega-3s - essential fatty acids present in foods such as chia seeds, walnuts and flaxseed - reduce inflammation and help lower triglycerides while raising HDL (good) cholesterol.

Minimize Statin Side Effects

People taking statin drugs to treat high cholesterol can develop side effects, especially with high medication doses. This typically manifests as muscle aches, but some notice cognitive impairment, or are concerned about an increased risk for developing diabetes or drug interactions. The good news is that you can minimize (and possibly eliminate) statin side effects by lowering your medication dose with food.

Please talk to your physician. We never advocate that you stop or modify your medication regimen on your own. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medication dose.

When Statins Are Not an Option

There are a variety of reasons people can’t use statin medications or are unable to attain goal cholesterol levels despite taking them. Some people steer clear of cholesterol medications altogether due to personal preference. Unfortunately, this leaves many individuals at persistently increased risk of heart disease. The good news is there are a variety of alternatives for improving cholesterol levels and food can be especially impactful when it comes to managing heart health.

Discover the Power of Food

What you eat is critical to your health - no drug can even compare! And when it comes to heart health, studies have even found food to be more effective than drugs in reducing cardiovascular events in patients with heart disease. About 1.5 times as effective, actually! When you embrace diet as a cornerstone of your cardiovascular prevention and treatment strategy, you can reduce your dependence on medications for cholesterol management and gain power over your own health outcomes.
