Elysium Health’s Basis Gives Agency to Consumers
There’s a new player on the supplement scene. Elysium Health is dedicated to bringing a level of rigor and scientific acumen to an industry that has long been overshadowed by shady characters and products that are, at times, scarcely distinguishable from nicely packaged snake oil.
But Elysium Health is different. Founded by MIT professor and nationally renowned researcher Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium Health counts more than 30 leading scientists in various fields on its staff and advisory board. The company brings a scientific pedigree that has never before been seen in the nutritional supplement industry.
After having been in business for more than two years, Elysium Health still only has one product. In the case of Elysium Health, it is a testament to just how thorough the company is and how seriously it takes the research and development of new products. After all, the company is almost run by research scientists who prioritize scientific integrity.
Basis uses a principle that has long been known to researchers but is much less known among the general public. Scientists have long known of a compound critical in many cellular processes known as NAD+, which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Although the compound is critical in metabolic processes and energy production, levels of the crucial molecule decline as people age.
What Elysium Health has done with Basis is to create a way for people to replenish their NAD+ levels. Through ingestion of a simple NAD+ precursor known as nicotinamide riboside, those taking Basis can significantly boost their levels of NAD+, even as they age into their senior years.
Basis is available for purchase on Elysium Health’s website.
