Elysium Health was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging during his career as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Collaborating together with scientists and clinicians from prominent academic institutions, Elysium Health is working to translate advances in technology and science to create clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium Health’s first supplement is Basis. The formula for Basis is based on 25 years of aging research and is designed to support cellular well-being by increasing and sustaining levels of the coenzyme NAD+.NAD+ is required for many of our fundamental cellular functions including DNA health, energy creation, and circadian rhythm. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally.
To ensure the effectiveness of Basis, Elysium Health put the supplement through a clinical trial. The results of the trial showed that taking the recommended daily dose of Basis increased levels of NAD+ by an average of 40 percent over the course of several weeks.
