Elysium Health is a consumer science company that was founded in 2014 by the renowned MIT researcher Leonard Guarente. The company works with world-class scientists to create health products that help people live healthier, longer. From the beginning, Elysium Health has sought to differentiate itself as a quality nutritional supplement manufacturer in an industry that is known to contain companies that overpromise on the effects of their products.
To do so, Elysium Health has vowed to take a far more science-based approach. The company translates advances in science and technology into clinically validated products that work. By doing this, Elysium is not only ensuring the effectiveness of its products, but it is also restoring the trust of consumers in the entire industry.
Elysium’s first health supplement is Basis. Basis works to increase levels of the coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential to many of our cellular functions like DNA protection and energy creation. But levels of NAD+ decline in our bodies as we age. By increasing levels of the coenzyme Basis supports those key cellular functions and supports our cellular health.
Basis underwent a clinical trial in 2016. 120 people were divided into three equal groups. The first group received the daily recommended dose of Basis; the second group received double the recommended dose of Basis; the third group received a placebo. The results of the clinical trial proved that Basis increases levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40% when we take the recommended daily amount of the supplement over the course of several weeks.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar contains a one-month supply of the supplement and costs $60. Monthly subscriptions to Basis are available and cost between $40-50 per jar.
