Leonard Guarente, a renowned biologist and MIT professor, saw the opportunity that existed in the nutritional supplement industry. He founded Elysium Health in order to bring the rigor of science to the manufacture of nutritional supplements, translating advances in science and technology into health products that work.
Guarente and co-founders Eric Marcotulli and Dan Alminana were able to bring several world-class scientists onto Elysium’s Scientific Advisory Board, which accelerates the pace of discovery and ensures scientific rigor. Their specialties range from biology to chemistry, and their presence quickly made Elysium Health one of the most intellectually superlative companies on the face of the planet.
All of this brainpower has paid off handsomely. The company’s first product, Basis, is a truly revolutionary nutritional supplement. Basis works by increasing the circulating levels of a molecule known as NAD+, which is one of the most critical compounds that all of the body’s cells use to create energy.
Unfortunately, as we age our levels of NAD+ decline naturally. Because the substance is so critical to the most vital processes of every living cell, having lower-than-optimal amounts means those cellular functions tend to break down. Acting on this principle, Basis is able to support the cellular health of by raising the levels of the coenzyme in our bodies. But Basis is not just useful for older people. The product is safe to use for all healthy adults as well.
To ensure the effectiveness of Basis, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. For participants who took the recommended dose of Basis over the course of several weeks, the levels of NAD+ increased by an average of 40 percent. The results of the trial were published in the peer-reviewed, open access scientific journal, Nature Partner Journals: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease. Conducting clinical trials is key to Elysium Health’s scientific approach when it comes to its products.
To purchase Basis, visit Elysium Health’s 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. Monthly subscriptions start at $50 per month. Prepaying for a longer subscription decreases the cost per month to $45 ($270 for six months) or $40 dollars ($480 for twelve months) per month.
Basis is a vegan, vegetarian, gluten- and nut- free supplement. That allows you to stick to your diet and avoid any related food allergies.
