How Elysium Health is Supporting Cellular Health
Elysium Health is a consumer health company that was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente, director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Elysium’s aim is to translate advances in science and technology into clinically validated health products that work; its mission is to help people live healthier, longer.
Cellular health is a vital component of a healthy lifestyle. Our cells contain a coenzyme called NAD+ that is essential to many of our cellular functions like energy creation, DNA protection, circadian rhythms, and many others. As we age, levels of NAD+ naturally decline and those functions break down. (See How To Be Preventative About Your Health)
Basis is a daily supplement proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. A clinical trial conducted by Elysium Health in 2016 demonstrated that adults taking the recommended dose of Basis daily over the course of several weeks increased their levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans. The results of the trial were published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar of the supplement contains a month’s supply, 60 capsules (two capsules per day is the recommended dose), and costs $60. A monthly subscription to Basis costs $50 per month. The most popular option that people purchase is the six-month subscription for $270 ($45 per month) because it allows for a long-term trial of the supplement’s effects. There’s also a one-year subscription available for $480, or $40 per month. Go Here for more information.
Future Plans for Elysium Health
Elysium Health is in the process of developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
