Elysium Health is a consumer science company that is known for its supplement Basis. Basis works to support many important cellular functions.
Elysium Health’s Background
In 2014, Elysium Health was founded by the biologist Leonard Guarente, and two businessmen, Daniel Alminana and Eric Marcotulli. Within the first year of its incorporation, Elysium Health began producing and selling Basis.
Leonard Guarente holds a Ph.D. in biology and works at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in addition to Elysium Health. Dr. Guarente is the director of The Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research and has researched the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his career.
How Basis Helps People Live Healthier, Longer
NAD+ is a coenzyme that declines in levels in our bodies as we age. This coenzyme is essential for DNA maintenance energy creation, regulating circadian rhythms, and hundreds of other vital functions. Basis works to increase levels of NAD+ in humans and support those cellular functions as a result.
The fact that Basis increases NAD+ levels has been clinically tested. During a clinical trial in 2016, Basis was found to increase levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in those who took the recommended daily dose of it over the course of several weeks.
The Ingredients That Make Basis a Great Supplement
Basis is contained in capsules rather than tablets. Its ingredients are vegetarian, vegan, gluten- and nut-free, as well as free of artificial coloring and artificial flavors. This makes Basis compatible with virtually every diet.
Basis itself contains two main ingredients—nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene—that are safe for virtually every human. It is subject to purity testing by reputable third-party testing agencies.
