Introducing a clinically proven, non-pharmaceutical lipid lowering option that doesn't require unrealistic dietary changes or daily workouts.

About Step One Foods

Recognizing that certain foods can impact cholesterol mirroring the effects of statins, Dr. Klodas set out to create a food-based solution that was convenient, science-based and delicious. The result is Step One Foods, a simple, effective, affordable option for patients who are statin ineligible, intolerant or unwilling.

• Just two servings a day
• Easy to incorporate into everyday life
• No additional dietary or lifestyle changes
• No statin-related side effects

For optimal cardiovascular benefits, patients should replace two typical snacks (or breakfast and a snack) with two servings of
Step One Foods.
