Elysium Health is one of the most important startups to make a debut in the supplement industry in recent years. Founded by MIT researcher Dr. Leonard Guarente, the company aims to bring academic rigor and scientific validity to an industry that has long been beset by a less-than-stellar reputation, due to the questionable credibility of many supplements on the market.
With Basis, Elysium is bringing cutting edge knowledge to the public
Dr. Guarente has long pointed out that the current state of scientific knowledge regarding the aging process is decades ahead of the options available to the public. With Basis, the first product from Elysium Health, the company has developed a formula to increase NAD+ levels, which can decrease as we age.
With two active ingredients, Basis is a relatively simple product. Nicotinamide riboside is the most important precursor to the molecule known as NAD+, which is a critical component of many cellular processes. The other substance contained in Basis is pterostilbene, a potent antioxidant similar to resveratrol that works synergistically with NAD+.
Together, these two molecules form one of the most potent means of promoting overall cellular health. When taken regularly, Basis has been proven through clinical trials to raise NAD+ levels by up to 40% in four weeks, thus affecting the cellular processes that NAD+ is involved in.
Basis is available on a subscription model for just $50 per month, or a one-time purchase for $60 a month, on Elysium’s Website. Also available on the website is more information on the company, as well as a more in-depth explanation of the science behind Basis.
