Elysium Health is changing the way scientific research impacts our daily lives in meaningful, practical ways. The company was co-founded by Dr. Leonard Guarente, the director of the Paul F. Glenn Laboratory for Biology of Aging Research at MIT, and aims to help people live healthier, longer.
Working together with some of the world’s leading scientists and clinicians, including research partnerships with the University of Cambridge, Harvard University, and Oxford University, Elysium Health is directly translating advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
One of the ways Elysium is doing this is through its first product, Basis. Basis is a daily supplement designed to support cellular health. It does so by increasing the levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential hundreds of cellular functions, including regulating our circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and many more. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline negatively impacting these essential functions.
Elysium Health conducted a placebo-controlled, randomized, and double-blinded.clinical trial in order to test the effectiveness and safety of Basis were The trial demonstrated that Basis was effective in safely increasing and sustaining NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent in participants that took the recommended dose (two capsules) for four weeks.
Additionally, Elysium Health engages in rigorous safety studies of its products, and for Basis, various biological markers (e.g., blood count, kidney function, liver function) were tested to ensure that the ingredients in Basis are safe. Elysium strives to exceed FDA standards for safety.
Basis can be purchased online via Elysium Health’s website as a subscription plan, or bottles can be purchased individually for $60. It is more cost-effective to buy a year’s supply upfront for $480 ($40 per month). Other purchase options are six months prepaid for $270 ($45 per month), or monthly at $50 each month. You can also purchase an individual bottle for $60.
Elysium Health is a different kind of health company. It prides itself on conducting and utilizing world-class research in order to inform its decision-making when developing products. Elysium is currently in the process of developing additional health products.
