Elysium Health was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente, the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his scientific career.
Elysium Health is a consumer health company that translates advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work. Elysium works directly with world-class scientists from Harvard, Stanford, and Yale, who serve on Elysium’s Scientific Advisory Board and help guide the direction of the company. Elysium’s first health product is Basis—a daily supplement that is based on more than 25 years of aging research.
Basis is proven to increase and sustain levels of the coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential to many of our cellular functions like circadian rhythms, energy creation, and hundreds of others. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those functions break down.
Elysium Health conducted a clinical trial to ensure the safety and effectiveness of Basis. During the trial, 120 people were divided into three equal groups. Group one took the recommended dose of Basis (two capsules daily), group two took double the recommended dose of Basis (four capsules daily), and group three took a placebo daily. The results demonstrated that taking the recommended daily dose of Basis over the course of several weeks increased levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent. Taking double the recommended dose increased levels of the coenzyme by an average of 90 percent. (Read: Is an Anti-Aging Pill on the Horizon?)
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. Each individual jar contains a month’s worth of the supplement—60 capsules. One jar of Basis costs $60, but monthly subscriptions help bring that cost down to between $40 and $50 per month. Go Here to learn more.
