In the crowded field of supplements, Elysium Health stands out as a company that translates advances in science and technology into clinically validated health products that work. Founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, who also serves as the Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging at MIT, the company is making evidence-based dietary supplements.
Elysium Health works with world-class scientists as part of its research and development process to support the company’s mission of helping people live healthier, longer.
Elysium’s first health product is Basis. This supplement is based on 25 years of aging research.
Basis supports our cellular health by increasing levels of NAD+ in our bodies. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential for a wide range of cellular processes. Our levels of NAD+ decline as we age, which is why Basis seeks to increase the levels of the coenzyme in our bodies.
To ensure Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The trial found that, on average, levels of NAD+ increase by 40 percent when people take the recommended daily amount of Basis over the course of several weeks. The results of the study were posted in the npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease Journal.
Basis is made up of two compounds, nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene. The combination of the two compounds is what is clinically proven to increase the levels of NAD+.
Basis is available directly from Elysium Health, the United States based research manufacturer. One bottle of the supplement costs $60 and provides a 30-day supply of Basis. Monthly subscriptions to Basis reduce the cost to between $40-50, depending on the length of the subscription. The six-month subscription is the most popular subscription because it allows people to feel the long-term effects of the supplement.
