Elysium Health is a consumer health company that wants to help people live healthier, longer. Working together with world-class scientists, Elysium Health translates advances in science and technology into clinically-validated health products that work.
Elysium Health was started by Dr. Leonard Guarente. Dr. Guarente works as the chief scientist of the company and as the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research into the genetic and molecular causes of aging himself.
Elysium makes a daily supplement called Basis. Basis is a supplement proven to increase and sustain levels of a coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential to many of our key cellular functions such as energy creation, DNA protection, circadian rhythms, and many more. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those functions break down. By increasing levels of NAD+, Basis supports those functions and our cellular well-being.
A clinical study on the safety and effectiveness of Basis demonstrated that the supplement increases levels of NAD+ in our cells safely and sustainably. During the clinical study, Basis increased levels of NAD+ in humans by an average of 40 percent when taken daily over the course of several weeks. The results of the study were published in the scientific journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease in November 2017. (Read How To Be Preventative About Your Health)
Each jar of Basis contains a 30-day supply of the supplement. Basis is available for individual purchase for $60 or as a monthly subscription for between $40 and $50 per month.
Elysium Health is also 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.
