Elysium Health is a health startup that was created by Dr. Leonard Guarente in 2014. Dr. Guarente is the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT, in addition to his responsibilities as the chief scientist of Elysium Health. He has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging during his long scientific career.
Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium. This daily supplement works to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is a key coenzyme that is essential to many of our cellular functions like circadian rhythms, energy creation, and DNA protection. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis is designed to increase levels of NAD+ to support cellular health.
Basis is clinically proven to increase levels of NAD+. In 2016, a clinical trial conducted by Elysium Health demonstrated that taking the recommended dose of Basis daily over the course of several weeks increased levels of NAD+ levels in humans by an average of 40 percent.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. An individual jar of the supplement costs $60. Monthly subscriptions to Basis are also available for purchase. A regular monthly subscription decreases the cost of each jar to $50 and pre-paying for six months or twelve months of the supplement brings the cost down to between $40 and $45.
