Elysium is a consumer health company translating advances in science and technology into clinically validated health products that work. The company was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente, in addition to being the chief scientist of Elysium Health, serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. He has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging during his career.
Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium Health. This supplement works to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells to support our cellular health. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions like circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and energy creation. As we age, the levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis is designed to restore levels of NAD+ in our cells.
In addition to taking supplements, another great way to improve your cellular health is exercising regularly. Many people do not exercise on a regular basis because of their busy lives and filled-up schedules. But regular exercise plays a critical role in the aging process because studies have linked lack of exercise to multiple health issues. (Learn How To Be Preventative About Your Health)
Eating a healthy diet is also critical to maintaining cellular health. Making natural food choices is a great way to ensure your body is full of necessary nutrients. Eating processed foods, although it saves time, is not good for your cells because processed food lacks many necessary vitamins.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar of Basis costs $60, but monthly subscriptions to the supplement decrease the cost of each jar to between $40 and 50 per month. View More Information Here.
