Elysium Health and Their Supplement Basis
Elysium Health is a consumer health company that wants to help people live healthier, longer. The company was co-founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente, in addition to his responsibilities at Elysium Health, serves as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. During his long scientific career, he has conducted significant research on the molecular and genetic causes of aging.
Elysium Health translates advances in science and technology into scientifically sound health products that work. Its first product is called Basis.
Basis is proven to increase levels of NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme to many of our cellular functions like circadian rhythms, energy creation, DNA protection, and many others. As we age, the levels of NAD+ in our bodies declines and those functions break down. Basis is designed to support those functions and our cellular well-being by increasing levels of the coenzyme.

Elysium Health put Basis through a clinical trial to ensure its effectiveness. Conducted in 2016, the trial proved that daily intake of the recommended dose of Basis increases levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent over the course of several weeks. Additionally, Elysium Health puts Basis through rigorous third-party quality testing.
Elysium works together with scientists from prestigious universities such as Harvard, Yale, and Stanford. These scientists make up the advisory board of the company and help guide the direction of Elysium’s research.
Basis is sold on Elysium Health’s website. Each jar of the supplement contains 60 capsules, which is enough for 30 days based on the recommended daily intake. An individual jar costs $60. Monthly subscriptions to Basis are also available. A regular month-to-month subscription costs $50 each month. Prepaying for a six-month ($270 one-time payment) or twelve-month subscription ($480 one-time payment) brings the cost of each jar down to between $40 and $45.
