Elysium Health’s Supplement Basis
Elysium Health is a consumer health company translating advances in science and technology into clinically validated health products that work. The company was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente—the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Elysium’s mission is to help people live healthier, longer.
Elysium Health works together with world-class scientists from universities such as Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and others. These scientists guide the company’s research and development of its products.
Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium Health. Basis works by increasing and sustaining levels of NAD+ in our cells. This coenzyme is essential to many of our cellular functions like energy creation, circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and others. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis is designed to support those cellular functions and our cellular well-being.
Basis is clinically proven to increase NAD+ levels in humans. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial conducted in 2016 demonstrated that taking two capsules of Basis per day (the recommended dose) over the course of several weeks increased NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent in adult participants.
