Elysium Health was co-founded in 2014 by the MIT research scientist Dr. Leonard Guarente. The company was built on the idea of translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
The guarantee has long worked at the forefront of aging research. During his long career as the director of MIT’s Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research, Guarente has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging.
Elysium Health collaborates with world-class scientists and clinicians from universities such as Stanford, Yale, and Harvard. These prestigious scientists make up the company’s scientific board of advisors and guide the path of the company’s research and development.
Elysium Health’s first product, Basis, is based on more than 25 years of aging research. Basis works by increasing levels of a critical coenzyme called NAD+, which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD+ is crucial to hundreds of our cellular functions, including circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and energy creation.
As people age, their levels of NAD+ decline and the functions to which it is essential to break down. That is why Basis is designed to increase levels of NAD+ and support our cellular health as a result.
The basis is available on Elysium Health’s website. It costs $50 for a one-month supply if you choose to purchase a standard monthly subscription. Longer subscriptions cost more upfront but offer discounts on the monthly rate. Each jar contains 60 capsules (the recommended daily intake is two capsules). An individual jar costs $60 without a subscription.
Basis can be taken while even if you have allergies or are on a diet, because the supplement is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, and is free of any artificial flavors and colors.
