Healthier living seems to be everywhere we look. From more health-conscious dietary options quickly replacing fast food chains in many areas of the world to a global public more dedicated to maintaining a regular exercise regimen, there’s been a paradigm shift with regard to the way we treat our bodies. Of course, a society’s goal is always to uncover new ways for its people to live healthier lives for as long as possible.
Into this foray has come Elysium Health, a consumer health company that seeks to help people live healthier, longer. Working directly with the world’s leading clinicians and scientists, Elysium Health is making a name for itself, translating advances in technology and science into effective, scientifically sound health products that actually work. The brainchild of Dr. Leonard Guarente, the director of the Paul F. Glenn Laboratory for Biology of Aging Research at MIT, Elysium Health is a new kind of health company.
At the heart of Elysium Health’s mission is Basis, a daily supplement designed to support well-being at the cellular level by increasing and sustaining levels of NAD+ in human cells. Basis is the culmination of more than 25 years of aging research. NAD+ is a coenzyme essential to many biological processes, including energy creation, DNA maintenance, and circadian rhythms. NAD+ declines as we get older and those functions break down. Basis, which contains a pair of compounds: nicotinamide riboside (an NAD+ precursor) and pterostilbene, is clinically proven to increase NAD+ levels safely and sustainably by an average of 40 percent.
Basis is recommended for long-term use by adults of all ages. Basis contains no animal products, artificial colors, or artificial flavors. What’s more, the ingredients in Basis have been tested for safety and are produced in facilities that meet FDA requirements. The supplement also undergoes rigorous third-party purity testing.
Elysium Health recommends taking two Basis of capsules each morning, with or without food; each jar of the supplement contains a 30-day supply. According to company representatives, the most popular subscription for the supplement is for six months, which runs $270, or $45 per month. A one-year subscription costs $480, or $40 per month and an ongoing subscription costs $50 per month. A one-off bottle is $60.
“As we age, NAD+ levels in our cells decline, and our trial results indicate that Basis increases NAD+ levels in a sustained way,” says Dr. Guarente. “Since NAD+ is involved in hundreds of critical cellular processes, we believe it’s a vitally important component to optimizing our cellular health as we get older.”
