Healthy living only seems to get more complicated as time goes on. Even what once seemed straightforward—diet, exercise, adequate sleep—is often up for debate. That’s before you even walk into a store, faced with more options for skincare, supplements, or toothpaste than ever before. In a world where the breadth of options can go beyond overwhelming, it can be difficult to know who to trust, particularly with something as serious as your health.
Thankfully, there are some companies that rise to the top. One such company is Elysium Health, founded in 2014 by Leonard Guarente, the director of the Glenn Laboratory of Science and Aging at MIT. Although the company currently champions a singular product—Basis—several others are in the development stage.
Elysium Health is in a particularly tricky industry—the supplement industry. Though it can be difficult to navigate and understand the claims of dietary supplements, Elysium Health keeps it simple by basing its products on reputable research. The company works in partnership with many esteemed scientists in various fields all relating back to the health sector, and maintains strict quality guidelines to ensure the efficacy of its product.
Basis is a daily dietary supplement based on 25 years of aging research and backed by a clinical trial that is formulated to promote your well-being at the cellular level. It comprises of two chemical elements: nicotinamide ribose, and pterostilbene. In conjunction, these elements allow Basis to positively affect NAD+ levels in the body, which is a compound required for optimal functioning of the cells. NAD+ is utilized by the human body to support metabolism, regulate circadian rhythms, and in energy production. This is particularly important as NAD+ levels tend to decrease as we age.
Basis is formulated with ingredients that undergo a thorough test for the safety before they are marketed to consumers. It is also vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free.
Due to its scientific and technological uniqueness, Elysium Health prefers to sell Basis from its website as opposed to drugstores, unlike many supplement manufacturing companies. Basis is quite affordable, with a six-month dosage costing only $270 and a month’s dosage for a regular buyer costing $50. However, a one-time purchaser has to part with $60.
