Step One Foods Aims To Revolutionize Heart Health Without Medication

August 29, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
Minnesota-based cardiologist Elizabeth Klodas, MD, founded Step One Foods to challenge the medical system’s approach to heart health. Instead of taking medication, users are to consume two servings of Step One products daily. Step One’s products deliver four “heart health building blocks” – fiber, plant sterols, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids - in convenient formats like oatmeal, smoothies, pancakes and snack bars. The products have been put to the test with a double-blind study conducted at Mayo Clinic and the University of Manitoba. After 30 days of taking the Step One program, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad cholesterol,” was reduced in participants by an average of 9 percent, with overall cholesterol declining 5 percent. The company claims it has seen a 250 percent increase in sales last year.
