Elysium Health is a consumer health company co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente. He serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. The company’s goal is to translate advances in science and technology to create clinically-validated health products that work..
Elysium Health sells a supplement called Basis, which is based on 25 years of aging research. When Basis is taken on a daily basis, it is proven to increase and sustain levels of NAD+. NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential to creation of energy, maintenance of DNA, and regulation of circadian rhythms, as well as hundreds of other cellular functions. Our levels of NAD+ decline naturally as we age, and those functions break down.
To ensure that Basis works as advertised, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. Taking the recommended daily dose of Basis increased levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent in humans during the trial.
You can purchase this supplement from Elysium Health’s website directly. There are individual purchases available, but most people choose to buy Basis as a subscription service. The subscriptions come in month-to-month, six-month, and one-year offerings. The longer you stretch out the time frame on your subscription, the bigger the discount you get. Those who purchase the one-year plan pay just $480 ($40 per month) for the whole year for example compared to the $60 per month that is charged to those who just go month-to month. That is why it is worth taking a look at your finances and how much you can afford. The bigger the order the better.
