How It Works

Science-Backed Food as Medicine

Nutrition belongs at the center of your heart health regime, not pills. Your diet directly impacts your health and can contribute to high cholesterol and heart disease. So by changing the way you eat, you can naturally better your health. Step One Foods products are designed to help you do just that! Grounded in pharmaceutical-level science and proven through our clinical trial, every serving of Step One Foods contains the precise amounts of key nutrients needed 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.

Fiber

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.

Antioxidants

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

Omega-3

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

As many as 20% of people taking statin drugs to treat high cholesterol develop side effects. This typically manifests as muscle aches, but some notice cognitive impairment, or are concerned about an increased risk for developing diabetes or potentially dangerous drug interactions. The good news is that you can minimize (and possibly eliminate) statin side effects by lowering your medication dose with food.

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

Find a Statin Alternative

There are a variety of reasons people steer clear of cholesterol medications, from statin intolerance to personal preference. In fact, up to 40% of people who are prescribed statins don’t ever fill their prescriptions! The good news is there are a variety of alternatives for improving cholesterol levels. Statins are not your sole option when it comes to managing heart health - in fact, studies show what you eat can be even more impactful than drugs.

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 found food to be more effective than drugs in reducing cardiovascular events in patients with heart disease. About 1.5 times as powerful, actually! When you embrace diet as the main prevention and treatment strategy for high cholesterol, you can minimize your dependence on statins and gain power over your own health outcomes.
