Elysium Health was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, who wanted to focus on improving the lives of people today through his research. The company’s research is guided by its scientific advisory board, which is made up of world-class scientists and clinicians from prestigious academic institutions. Dr. Guarente himself has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging during his career as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Elysium Health translates advances in technology and science to create clinically-validated health products that work.
Most of us work at a desk, in front of a computer, which makes us strive to be healthier outside the office. We associate that with exercise and diet, but often not with cellular health. Supplements can go a long way to improve your well-being even further, after you’ve established good exercise and dietary habits.
Basis is a supplement created by Elysium Health to support cellular health. Nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene are the two ingredients that make up Basis. When combined together, the two increase levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ plays is essential to many of our cellular functions such as DNA health and circadian rhythms. NAD+ declines in levels as we age, and those processes stop functioning.
Elysium Health decided to put Basis through a clinical trial in order to ensure its effectiveness. The results of the trial showed that taking the recommended daily dose of Basis increased levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent over the course of several weeks.
Elysium Health sells Basis on its website. Each jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days’ worth of daily intake. As a result, the company sells the supplement in a variety of monthly subscriptions. You can buy a single jar of Basis for $60, but choosing a monthly delivery offers significant savings.
