Elysium Health’s Background and the Company’s Supplement Basis

Elysium Health is a health company co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, who serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. The company collaborates with world-class scientists and clinicians from prestigious academic institutions such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford.  These scientists guide the direction of the company and its research.

Based on 25 years of aging research, Elysium Health sells a supplement called Basis. The supplement is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. This coenzyme plays a major role in many of our cellular functions such as DNA maintenance  and circadian rhythms. Our levels of NAD+ decline naturally as we age, and those functions break down.

Basis is a vegan, vegetarian, and gluten- and nut-free supplement. That allows you to stick to your diet and avoid any related food allergies.

In 2016, Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial. The results of the study, which were published in the online peer-reviewed science journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease, demonstrated that Basis increased and sustained NAD+ levels in humans taking the recommended daily dose by an average of 40 percent.

To include Basis in your daily routine, purchase it on Elysium Health’s website. The company sells Basis in a variety of monthly subscriptions. An individual jar of Basis costs $60. But monthly subscriptions to the supplement bring that cost down to between $40 and $50, depending on the length of the subscription.

Elysium Health recently began to offer a new way to buy Basis as well. The supplement is now available in stores, at the tech retailer b8ta. Check out one of nine b8ta locations across the country and pick up an extra jar or two of Basis while discovering other unique products.
