Due to advancements in technology and growing improvements in understanding healthy living, it is easier for people to make choices that allow them to live healthier lives than ever before. However, it is important to identify which products and trends to trust, and which are based on unsubstantiated claims. While old recommendations such as regular exercise and a balanced diet are a given for maintaining overall wellness, it can be difficult to venture into other areas to promote your health.
But what if there was a product available designed to support long-term health?
Dr. Leonard Guarente, who is the Director of the Glenn Laboratory for the Science of Aging at MIT, founded Elysium Health as a groundbreaking and revolutionary type of health startup. The company seeks to find the means for scientific advancements to be translated into health products that work.
Basis—Giving Your Cells What They Need
Basis is the first product created by Elysium Health. It aims to support cellular health by increasing levels of NAD+, a coenzyme essential for hundreds of vital cellular functions like DNA maintenance and circadian rhythms. Basis is composed of two components: nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene.
A clinical study conducted in 2016 proved that Basis increases levels of NAD+ in humans. Over a period of several weeks, the participants of the study who took Basis saw an average increase of NAD+ levels of 40 percent compared to those that did not.
Accessible, Affordable, and Effective
By being a key daily supplement for cellular health, Basis provides a convenient way to support your cellular well-being.
Basis contains no animal products and is recommended for adults to be consumed daily. Elysium Health provides a few options when it comes to purchasing Basis. The most popular choice is a six-month subscription to the supplement for $270 (costing $45 per month). But Elysium also offers other subscriptions as well as individual sales of the supplement.
