Elysium Health was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente in addition to serving as the chief scientist at Elysium Health, is the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT.
Elysium Health works together with scientists from world-class universities like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford to translate advances in science and technology into clinically- validated health products that work. The mission of the company is help people live healthier, longer in the process.
Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium Health. Basis works to increase and sustain levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is a coenzyme essential to many of our cellular processes such as energy creation, DNA protection, circadian rhythms, and others. As we age, the levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis is designed to increase levels of NAD+ and, as a result, support our cellular health.
The formula for Basis is based on more than 25 years of aging research. A clinical trial conducted by Elysium Health in 2016 demonstrated that Basis increased levels of NAD+ in humans taking the recommended daily dose (two capsules) by an average of 40 percent over the course of several weeks.
Basis regularly undergoes third party testing for quality. This supplement is gluten-free, nut-free, vegetarian, and vegan, allowing you to stick to your diet while taking Basis.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website. A six-month subscription to Basis costs $270 ($45 per month) and a one-year subscription costs $480 ($40 per month). An ongoing monthly subscription costs $50 per month. You can also buy an individual bottle of Basis for $60.
Elysium is also in the process of developing new products that focus on the microbiome, cognitive health, skin health, muscle function, and circadian rhythms. These products are in various stages of pre-clinical and clinical trials.
